I have a budget of 600 euros to spend on a PC, if you have any recommendations please comment them below, I'm not looking for a specific PC just a PC it's good to game on, I am able to build a computer myself too.

 

Sincerely,

 

Baran, Rick James.

You can delete a post yourself if I am right. Click on edit then on delete post

 

- Edit wait I don't see the button anymore. I bet this was possible in the past. Maybe when we switched forum software it disabled it? :P

The guys over at /r/pcmasterrace on reddit have quite some powerful budget builds that still outweigh consoles

 

This one is very powerful and only costs about 600 bucks: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3EQ0h

Don't get an 8-core AMD.

Games don't use more than 4 cores. Most of them heavily rely on 1 or 2.

 

You want a CPU with fast cores, not many cores.

 

For gaming, I recommend an intel quadcore i5. Preferrably something that ends with K, but for a budget build a slightly cheaper i5 is acceptable.

Hmm. this thread interests me, seing as this is how crappy my computer is, and I'm afraid it will totally die out on me soon.

I always thought I would have to spend way over 600 bucks.

I'd just upgrade the graphics card if I were you. The rest of your PC isn't all that bad.
Unless you've got some cash to burn of course.

Some i5 (Take a K one if you are going to oc) Gpu: Like gtx 750ti (idk if a gtx 760 would fit your budget)

Do you need an OS or a mouse/keyboard/monitor?

Nope, just a computer itself.

with the cpu you're gonna have to get a new mobo and at which point you might as well get new ram too. As soon as I get decent mobile Internet I'll do a bit of searching on my usual sites and give you a list of what I recommend, hopefully you can find them on your sites at an equivalent or cheaper price :)

Well there it is, sorry it's just a screen shot for now but it's the easiest way on my phone. Ofcourse it's not the right currency (I'm not actually sure where you're from) but hopefully prices will be the same or cheaper.

There is plenty of room for change, you can get a non modular less powerful psu which would be cheaper, the ssd is optional and I didn't include a case because I assumed you have one, although by the looks of it it's a hp one and the choice of case is usually down to personal taste.
Also there will be other brands of things like psu and ram with similar spec that might be cheaper. But yeah, constructive feedback is good.

Thanks for the help, I live in The Netherlands, but I like it I'll also do some research on this.

 

Thanks man, really appreciated.

I'd get this and keep the other parts you have if the PSU can handle it, if not skip the SSD and get a PSU instead. Prices are from alternate.nl
