Looking to build gaming PC 500$ budget

Hey everyone, wondering if you could help me out here. I'm looking to build a 500$ - 550$ gaming PC build monitor and mouse not included. I was wondering if i could utilize that new 200$ AMD card for some nice power.

    $490 for this build
    What AMD card are you talking about?
  2. You can fit a nice build with an RX 480 in between that price range. I would recommend the following partslist, as the i3-6100 will co-operate quite impressively I believe.

    The card won't arrive until a couple of weeks later though. You have to be patient, could already buy the parts except for the GPU.
  3. Save up another $100 and get a quad core processor, it will be worth it for gaming.
  4. I'd probably be willing to add another 100 for a quad core processor. Which would you guys think fit my build. Also I'm talking about that new rx 480 that will be out soon i think. The 200$ VR ready one

    This looks pretty good how much power do you think I'll get out of this build. Would I be able to max some things at 1080
  8. Yeah you would be able to max games at 1080p with i5-6400 + RX 480.

    oh yea no doubt. I personally think this is the most bang for your buck you can get (atleast when the rx 480 is actually released)
    you should be good for a long time at 1080p

    Thanks man hopefully I don't mess anything up this is my first time building lol
  11. If you haven't purchased the parts yet, do change the case and power supply listed in toot's build to the ones I listed. Very marginal price difference, yet much higher quality parts on both ends. The Rosewill SRM is a far more limited case than the Cooler Master N200, the price difference between the two is 5 dollars. The EVGA 600B Power supply has only 2 years warranty and doesn't have 100% Japanese capacitors and is very much in EVGA's budget offering. Since you don't need the wattage besides that, the Corsair CXM 550w with 5 years of warranty and full Japanese Caps would be likely to last on you for a while longer.
