Components you need to buy to build a gaming PC under $800
Probably many readers of ALT1040 and most of Ecetia are true video game addicts (I had my Counter-Strike days, I’ll admit), but all of them may also have my problem: gaming computers are expensive.
Well, it’s true that computers are expensive, but it’s also true that many people don’t want to move from the house and expect everything to come from the factory and ready to start playing instantly.
Well, let’s leave that to those lucky enough to have enough money to buy them. For everyone else who can’t afford a $1,400-$2,000 gaming PC or laptop, here’s a guide to hardware to buy to build a computer with which you won’t have any problem running video games (it often works better than some of the much more expensive ones).
- Antec Three Hundred $60
- Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3GHz Wolfdale $165
- Visiontek Radeon HD 4850 $185
- Seagate 500GB Barracuda $65
