Hello again PC builders,

Budget is still tight, can you manage to build the most optimal PC at this price range

It can be whatever you want! (AMD or Intel, though I have a preference for the GTX 900 series)

I'll install an optical drive, Windows 10 and Wifi card on my own.

The aim is to play Star Wars Battlefront 3 on High settings 1080p with FPS around the 60s

Good Luck and Thank you,

  • Dino

What I would do, apologies for the £6 over. If you built the equivalent Haswell machine it would (i3 4170, H81 motherboard and 8GB of DDR3) you could probably save £30 and not really lose a massive amount of performance.
