review this guide:
their entry level amd based pc is $600 but includes a monitor and win7. if you've got either then all you need to do is add an $80 video card and you should be at $500.
radeon hd 4670: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125277
geforce gt 240: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150475
you could also start with a dell inspiron 570 for $400 and add the radeon hd 4670.
I want to build a gaming pc, but my budget is 500$. So i want to know some cheap parts that will allow me to play new games like "The Old Republic" but also parts good enough to last me a while. My case can hold ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards.
I prefer parts from newegg, tigerdirect, or bestbuy.
I need all the parts for the pc: motherboard, ram, hard drive, cpu, etc....
If it's not possible to build a good gaming pc with 500$, then can you just give me a list of parts for a good regular pc up to 500$
Thanks, for any help.
