[Request] can someone make me a budget build? 600 CDN without tax
 
Hi guys whats up, i was thinking if someone here could help make me a 600 budget gaming build that could play games on good settings. I am just bored and want to see what people can come up with as i was thinking of making a i7 build but i dont have the $$$$ atm so i am goning to see if its worth making a 600$ build. :biggrin:

Please use the website NCIX.com as i think they have good prices, Newegg.ca is also an option but their shipping costs kill it.

thanks =). ( also try to keep it around 650$ with tax please ) i would appericiate the help.

Should OC well, nice case to work with tons of room, i want to push AMD more, which is why i chose AMD components, you're getting better bang for buck with that combo.

Should work well for most resolutions unless you've got a huge moniter.

Heres the list, bit pricey and you also have to include the PSU which would be the OCZ StealthXStream at Canada Computers for $30 after $10MIR, pm to ncix. The price in the screenshot totals to 595.41 after pm.

Hi thanks for the build, could someone make an intel build as well? just so i can compare? Also if i can afford it should i put in a GTX 260? Also my monitor is 21.5 inches and i dont plan on playing of full res though.

If it is an LCD you should always try to play at the maximum resolution, otherwise there is a huge drop in quality. And I suspect an Intel rig in this price range will be slower than either of those two AMD rigs. You could also get a Seagate drive500GB 7200.12 drive for around $20 cheaper than that WD Black drive. The Seagate is similar speed but much quieter and uses less power. You could pricematch it to Newegg: Newegg.ca - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

QUIETER!?!?!?:haha: I have the exact same drive you mentioned and it gives me headaches. I also have the WD green 500gb one and it is fine.

Seagate HDDS are many things....LOW Noise is NOT one of them. Faster...maybe as that is "only" the blue version of WDs line but in heat and noise it will eat the Seagate's lunch.

Edit: for a few bucks more you can get twice the size AND a faster HDD in the 640 WD Black. I own some of these and they give VelociRaptors a run for their money (which I also own) ;)
