    Hey guys,

    I'm​
    looking to build a decent gaming PC. My budget is between 500 and 700 dollars.

    It needs to have at least 4 GB of DDR3 and preferably a quad core AMD with ATI graphics.​

    Need a power supply, case, keyboard etc as well.

    TIA. :D

    I spent about $900 on mine. Newegg and tiger direct are running some good sales right now.

    Not so easy to build a decent gaming PC $500-700, roughly:

    1. Phenom x4:
    ($145)
    AMD Phenom


    2. ATI 5770:
    ($204)
    Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 1 GB DDR5 2DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card 100283L: Electronics


    3. MB:
    ($140)
    ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - AM3 - AMD 890GX - DDR3 - USB 3.0 SATA 6 Gb/s - ATX Motherboard: Electronics



    4. DDR3, 2x2Gb, not Kingston which I like:
    ($180x2)
    DDR3 (OCZ3P1600LV6GK) - Random Access Memory (RAM)


    5. Power Supply:
    ($140)
    Super Flower Amazon 650W Power Supply


    Didn't count the keyboard, mouse, and the case.
