Building Another Budget Gaming PC...

<< < (4/4)

I suppose it would be nice to spend a little more of the budget on the video card..

From what I've found, there are three price points to look at: the lower $100s are definitely bargain.  You get into a standard gaming PC that can handle most things at high frame rates at $200 (which is my usual price point).  And over that, you're looking at $400+.  I spent that once, and while it was nice, I didn't think that the price for performance was worth it.  Sometimes things dip into other price points... but this is in general where the tiers stand from my experience.

Yeah, if you could add another $100 to the budget, and get yourself a $200-$250 graphics card, you'd probably notice the difference.  Especially since you plan to be gaming with this..

When I built my PC, Carol suggested I use the Antec 300, which has turned out to be my all-time favorite case for the price.  I was able to find the One on sale for $50 so I opted for it.

Glad you liked it ;-)

My last build used one of these and I am a convert - huge fans, huge fun and really flexible case for the price and cracking build quality (and it comes with a 3.5 inch cradle and internal 2.5 inch cradles for SSDs).

Built a couple of machines with these for customers too and they were pleased.
