Budget Gaming PC
Hi, Looking to piece together a budget gaming PC after being using OSX based computers for the last 10 years I am bit out of the loop. I have a windows 7 licence. As well as a 128GB SSD (sandisk) and a 2tb external hdd). I also have 16GB ram in my HP N40L which only recognises as 8GB.
So plan at the moment was something like this
And then popping the 8GB ram into the MicroServer and putting the 16GB G.Skill Ares DDR3 PC10600 ram into the new pc. Going to likely purchase a mates old Radeon 7770 1GB as he is upgrading it to something a little fancier.
I have an Antec Case with matching PSU laying around that will suit as well. My main question to ask now is can anyone suggest anything cheaper than the linked combo, or anything I should be looking at instead.
Intention is a "SteamBox" to play CS:Go and the likes, and to have a capable machine ready to run when Sim City gets here. Maximum resolution I expect to need is 1920x1080 (HD via HDMI to television). Likely will purchase a monitor at some point tho.
