Hey SpywareDoc, i'm a noob when it comes to computer details and price but i want a computer that can run games on high graphics and perfrom good, with good fps. (Examples of some games i want to play with high graphics and good fps: Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Skyrim, League of Legends.)

Do you think the price of a computer like that could be between 400$-500$? If not, what is the price?

At the moment i have a laptop that my parents bought in Israel. It cost 800$, and it works very bad. So this time i want to buy a desktop computer.

Any Suggestions?

Buying a very powerful gaming PC for $500 is possible, but very hard to find. I would encourage you to build a PC instead of buying, so you can get your best gaming PC at a low price.

I don't mind building a pc instead of buying it, but i need help finding the best parts and i need it to be delivered to me. Do you have any good pc builds for 500$ and that can be delivered to Israel?

To build a cheap gaming PC, you should spend more on the graphics card, for other parts get the cheapest you can get, you will be able upgrade to a better one later if you have the budget.

 

Here is one of the build under $500 with i3 processor and powerful graphics card:

If you can get Skylake or i5 you should get it, but since it is more expensive we will choose a Haswell CPU and a i3. The total price doesn't include Windows OS, you will have to buy it for about $100 if you want to use it. If you have old version of Windows and it is not OEM version, you can use it.

Thank you so much batman1234. This computer looks fine to me, except the cpu. I do understand getting a better cpu will cost more money and that's ok. I am saving up money right now and later on i will find a job and earn enough money. Can you add the i5  you are talking about and the OS system to the build so i can see the total price?

Barely can. You should turn off some unnecessary graphics to achieve higher frame rate. To run games at high graphics and also high FPS, a i5 CPU is recommended, but you can't buy this right now because of your budget.

Sorry, don't see it just now. :blush:

 

i5 will cost about $80 more than i3, OS (Windows 10 for example) costs around $100, add these to your system the price will be more than $650. If you have older version of Windows you can use it on your new PC, make sure it is not OEM version.

Yes it is quite good. i5 is the best processor for gaming right now because i7 is not needed when gaming.

 

If you want to save money when you can, get the i5-4460. It is just a little cheaper(less than $10 difference) than 4590 and 0.1 GHz lower speed, but you are not going to see any differences between these two, unless in benchmark. I have i5-4460 and i7-4790K and I'm very satisfied with 4460.

 

For OS I would spend a little more money to buy full retail version instead of OEM. OEM product key is tied to the motherboard and you can't use it in other PC, you can do this if it is Retail. Windows 10 is the latest and is very fast. :)
