Illustration and gaming PC

Hey everyone how are you? I am in need of a new PC UNDER $600. I will use it for moderate to high gaming and doing illustration and 2D animation. I have a FEW of the parts; 8 gigs of ram, a monitor, a case and a power supply. I am more of an AMD man but that is due to shear ignorance of Intel products. If there is anything that I neglected to answer please feel free to ask and ty for your time.

Hello. You can check my builds out by clicking to my profile. The 580$ one is great for your budget. I do not know what kind of ram or power supply and case you have purchased but check is they are compatible. if your parts are you can save more Money and buy a lot of games from Steam or something.

If you want the Extra Money for hardware get the AMD FX-8350 or the AMD FX-6350 instead of the AMD FX-6300 that I suggest in my guide. Another way to spend your Money is to buy a better G.P.U for example the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 it is great for gaming and for making youtube videos.Do NOT buy a G.P.U from AMD unless it is th R9 390X or something more powerful than that.

Also a DVD Writer is an option

Hope this was helpful!!! -Omgitstrm

Thanks for saving my parts list! That guide though is one I change a lot because it is based on my budget around 580$. So for more preformance and a lower price I suggest you keep up with my build or change it up a bit yourself! -Omgitstrm
