Hey guys, Im new to posting on this forum but a fairly keen reader and fan of CustomPC. So anyways my apologies for posting yet another budget gaming build (theres so many) but here is my idea for a build and I would really appreciate it if anybody at all, tech-wise or not to give me an insight into this buid, if you do have any experience with any of the parts listed below please share them, along with any suggestions! *the build is based around the most recent affordable all-rounder* Components - EDIT CPU: AMD Sempron 140 2.7GHz Socket AM3 1MB Cache Retail Box Processor MoBo: Asrock N68C-S UCC GeForce 7025 Socket AM2+ VGA Out 6 Channel Audio GFX: Gainward ATI Radeon HD 4870 Golden Sample 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-E HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache - OEM RAM: Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz Memory Kit Unbuffered CL9 Optical Drive: Samsung SH-D163C 16x DVD-ROM CD-R SATA Optical Drive - OEM Black PSU: Corsair 400W CX PSU - 12cm Fan 80Plus Certified Efficiency 6x SATA 1x PCI-E CPU Cooler: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 Socket 775, 1156, 1366, AM2, AM3 Heatpipe Case: Casecom Black Mid Tower Case - Front Blue LED 120mm Fan - With Side Window Monitor: Acer X203 20" Wide LCD Monitor 1600x900 50,000:1(Dynamic) 5ms - Black Peripherals: Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0, Microsoft Reclusa Advanced Gaming Keyboard OS: Linux Overclocking: I'll give it a bash! Total Price: £482.81 Inc. VAT + Delivery My requirements for the computer: Be able to play Counter Strike: Source at a 16:9 ratio @ 1280 x 720, med-high settings on 10+ man games on all the reguler maps and average around 60fps. General web browsing (Google, Youtube, BBC IPlayer) My main question is this build able to give me what im after? or will I have to start selling my relatives to increase my budget? Please do note this is on a very tight budget as money is very scarce in my household so I cannot afford to go past £550 which is a shame but oh well...Im not bothered about having a bigger screen anyway, 20" is a massive upgrade compared with my 3 year old 17" screen. I thank you in advance for any suggestions/constructive criticism/opinions when it gets around to building (hopefully in a few weeks) ill be sure to post pictures!
