first off lets start with the Basics --- Do you understand how the various components work together?

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/589125/just-the-basics-please/

 

I digress, part compatibility is important and key to building a good PC.

 

Your RAM needs to match your CPU as well as your motherboard.

 

Also, which CPU to use AMD or Intel - AMD APU's are great for a budget build as the A10 - 7000 series can run most of your games on 720P at 60FPS.

No I will not do that, its inappropriate that you asked, given this forum is the appropriate place. It would not do anything to add to the conversation.

 

Please stay on topic.

 

So you take an enclosure, put in a motherboard, RAM, GPU, CPU, Storage, Optical Drive, and PSU --- that makes a computer. I recommend youtube, do some research. Go try and learn and if you have questions ask!

How much money do you have to spend on this project?

 

MaximumPC has a few builds you can take a look at for ideas.

He has almost no money to spend from other posts he makes about $40 a week.

 

So in 13 weeks if he saved every penny he could build a decent entry level gaming computer.

If money is an issue then buying makes more sense than building, mainly due to the cost of the operating system.

ASUS Desktop PC M32BF-US012S A8-Series APU A8-6500 (3.50 GHz) 8 GB DDR3 2 TB HDD Windows 8.1 (64-Bit) - $395

 

Free upgrade to Windows 10, 12.5 times more hard drive, dedicated video card, $100 less money.  As good as the machine you posted, not really, but 16% cheaper and acceptable performance for the money.

That sir is a nice find !!!!!

 

I for one am grateful for your research!

 

Farmer this would hands down be the cheapest easiest way to go.

 

I would not see why you would object to this computer.

 

Well, it has some bad reviews......I may not recommend this particular computer. But the point remains you can get a gaming computer for little money.

When you are done building your new gaming PC, the old one will self destruct in 5 seconds.

 

If you want to build it from specific parts, just post the parts here and people can tell you if they work together or not, and probably make recommendations on any parts you might want to change.

So pistolcal you're telling me that I should buy that Desktop?

Also, these guys, do they do free shipping? Also if you are telling me to buy ASUS desktop, that means I should sell this one, which might take some time, though Im just lucky I can sell stuff fast

Also, what what processor (intel core) is that ASUS desktop?

First, I would start by reading the specifications on that Asus desktop. 

 

Second, I do not know if I would buy it given the negative reviews other have about it's performance.

 

Third, its not an Intel CPU.

 

Forth, I believe it was posted more as a counter to my post than a true .....you should buy this now......type of post.

 

Fifth, You can put a GPU in your current PC, which I already said and linked for you in other forum posts.

 

Sixth, However it will not run the games you have mention at 60 FPS at 1080p or even at 720p

 

Seventh, Hence why we are here.

 

Eighth, You need a GPU that will run modern games at 1080p at 60FPS and that can be done for no less than a GTX 770.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487128

 

Ninth, Your current PC will not sell well second hand, so that is an issue.

 

Tenth, If you build a PC and use anything less than a GPU equivalent to a GTX 770 or an R9 270 you will not get what you want out of your PC performance wise.

 

Eleventh, Base your computer build around what GPU you choose. As others have stated let us know your parts you are looking at and we can help.
