    You could easily make a "Steam Box" PC for about $500 and it only takes about 25mins to make. Here are the materials you would need...

    1GB XFX Radeon HD 7770
    Intel Pentium G850, Socket 1155, Dual Core, 2.90GHz
    LiteOn IHAS124-04 24x DVD±R
    CoolerMaster Extreme 500W PSU
    ASRock H61M-DGS LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
    4GB Corsair Value DDR3 PC3-10600
    500GB Seagate ST500DM002 Barracuda SATA 6Gb/s, 7200rpm


    Not all of them are in-stock but you atleast have a list of the parts...

    So this would be good for top notch gaming? I'm looking for a new desktop for Youtube so I needs to be pretty good
  5. general ideas.
    get an i3 instead of a Pentium, u can indeed fit an i5 if 650 is ur actual budget do not get a CM PSU, try getting a 7 Series Chipset for the newer features, not in a position to give detailed explanations or a build right now, will do that in thr evening today
  6. It really depends on what you plan on doing. If you're using youtube, most new processors will be good enough to play the HD videos. You also have to consider the resolution. If you're doing 720P gaming, you'd be fine with an I3 and a lower tier GPU. If you're doing 1080P gaming, you'd need an I5 and a medium or high tier GPU. AMD is okay, but get an fx 6300 and above if you're gaming.

    I know this is alot to ask but could you recommend or list products that would be good, and how I get Windows 7 instead of Windows 8? I'm kinda a noob with this stuff so any help would be greatly appreciated
  8. I will make u a build when I get home in about half an hour, do u need Windows included in the price?
  9. a much better build for a cheaper price

    Just two more small questions. How much is Windows 7 and could the 8DDR3 be extended to or bought at 16? Thanks again
  12. Best answer
    last time i saw Windows was about 90$
    u wouldn't need 16GB of RAM, 8 is enough for gaming, but yes there are two slots empty for future expansion

    Personally I use a PC that's just below this. It is amazing. These would definitely make a good PC.
  15. You guys were fine until you recommended an intel pentium g850. If your really hard up for cash, maybe. But another $50 gets you a GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard and an FX 6300. Thats the sweet spot for cpu's below $150. Its faster across the board. And thats before overclocking.
