Who can make the most bang for the buck semi-full pc setup(monitor, mouse speakers.NOT headphones i have a pair of turtle beach ones laying around) for 700 usd? this build is for gaming and id like to max out most games on medium-ultra settings i would also like to overclock the cpu.(please for TGE LOVE OF GOD...USE FILTERS) ill be playing some intensive games like gta v (maxing out everything but msaa[fxaa will be on] at 720p-1080p) and gta v is very cpu intensive so plz try not to use a pentium cpu but instead an i3, if a intel build is to much money then use an amd one.(gpu wise a gtx 950 will be pretty good for gta with the settings ill be playing at[EVERYTHING MAXED OUT except resolution|duh| and msaa/txaa or whatever] the vram useage should be around 2.3-2.5 gb of vram at 720-1080 p) and one more thing... if pricing gets super close... you can use ebay ;)(make sure the product is in good condition and the seller has a good rep)

the G3258 20 Year Anniversary Edition has INSANE overclock ability. Go buy a $20 keyboard/mouse combo at walmart. This went a tad over budget because i wanted to tell you that the headphones i picked i have bought 2 pairs of because they have a vibration/bass dial that BUMPS on trap/dubstep/rap ect. Here is a forum showing motherboards that this processor overclocks well with : http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2389948 and TRUST ME you WANT a 27 inch monitor. Ive made that mistake many times and regretted it on delivery day : / MAKE SURE you get the 4 GB not 2gb version of this card. These guys are posting the 2gb one, its not that good..Get a SSD as soon as you can budget it for an upgrade and put your operating system and the 2 games you play the most on it.

Here ya go!

Yeah, that Pentium has insane overclock ability... BUT it is limited to two cores. There are quite a few games now and coming out that will choke on a dual core/two thread CPU, INCLUDING GTA-V.

ok people, good job on these builds but gta v is very cpu intensive and pentium cpus are known yo lag and stutter ALOT. so plz if do you need to use a dual core CPU use an i3(REMEMBER TO USE FILTERS)

Monitor is Freesync-enabled so your Pent/380 combo should have no problem keeping a nice 60 FPS feel. Also goes up to 75hz for less demanding titles.

This one looks really good. A few things to change would be a larger SSD, and some cheaper RAM. Nice choice on the monitor!

larger SSD is a must... that one will run out in a hurry... that exceeds budget, better to start with old fashion mechanical and go 1TB. That Pentium will choke on GTA-V.

I disagree: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYcyxiMEY8s & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eqz6Y5TIQE & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVFvkqRHY9o

I try not to recommend anything that I'm not sure will work. All videos above average around 50 FPS and that is exactly why I included a Freesync display. I would've gone i5 but OP specifically mentioned overclocking (and since edited it out) and it isn't possible at the budget to overclock an i5.

The SSD is fine if you're smart about your files and was included specifically to cut down on load times that suffer with the Pentium. I always recommend getting a SSD 1st, HDD later on so you have your OS drive ready to go at the beginning of the build.

I'm sorry my build was unpopular! Thanks for all the downvotes, folks.

ya man its a $60 proccessor but didnt you say you wanted to overclock it? It wont have any issues with any games BF4 included in that case, if you dont believe me go to youtube my man. However, if you can fork the extra cheeze get the i3 6100 or better yet 6300 and break the budget, i just didnt know that was an option.
