$500-$600 Christmas Build

Exploosh

62 months ago

Opinions? Looking to build a decent-good gaming computer for Christmas. I'll eventually upgrade some parts, but I'd like to at least start out running the newest games on medium (BF4, Assassin's Creed, GTA V, and whatever else). Also looking to max out Skyrim/Fallout New Vegas with mods if possible. Let me know if you have any knowledge to drop on me, I'm new to most of this.

I'm waiting on sales, so I know the prices in this current build will go down again. They were cheap during the Black Friday Week...
