I have a tight budget (not being able to get a job yet, because well..... IM 12) and was wondering if I can get a PC that can run maybe GTA V at low settings 720p and a good fps in Minecraft. If there's really no $200 to $250 dollar PC that can play GTA V, Just please tell me the best $200 dollar PC build you can get. Thanks!

$200 is really tough, if you can maybe wait it out till you have $300, I suggest this.

I see the build above this one, the 750 Ti is a very capable card and should preform about the same.

If you really need it at $200, I have a build that uses an APU that should just hold you over till you can get an extra $100

This build will literally run the games at the lowest settings, I would STRONGLY suggest that if you go with this build, you save up $100 for a GTX 750 Ti.

In my opinion; you could start with 4GB and if it saves enough get a better CPU. But that's just me.

Eh, no. $200 will not play GTA V.

If you can save up $360 (noscope), I'd recommend this:

What this will achieve in games:

  • Battlefield 4 @ 1080p ULTRA - 35FPS average
  • Skyrim @ 1080p ULTRA - 42FPS average
  • Bioshock Infinite @ 1080p ULTRA - 55FPS average
  • Grid 2 @ 1080p ULTRA - 41FPS average
  • Metro Last Light @ 1080p ULTRA - 29FPS average

Good luck!

Thanks! A little over lol, but worth it if it can play all that.

Why not just a cheaper 750 Ti?

You're better off buying a 950 for that price.

That will increase the budget even more.

But it puts it even more over budget by $50, the 750 ti is still a good card

Yeah, the one he chose seems too expensive for what it is.

The 750Ti is outperform by quite a bit by the R7 265, for like $2 - $3 more. Most games differ in FPS by about 10 between the two cards, which is a lot, since they do not achieve 60FPS.
