The PS4 and Xbone have both come out and its no secret that they dont run games in full 1080p at 60fps. This pc will solve all of that and it comes in at a cost that a console peasant could afford! Now here is my rationale for the parts I selected:
CPU: Athlons have akways been rock solid budget CPU's that still pack a punch this one clocked at 3.8 GHz while still being a wuad core is a steal for just $70
CPU COOLER: The hyper T2 is cheap and suitable for a small overclock, need I say more?
MOTHERBOARD: Great features and overclocking utilities also had SATA 6Gps as a bonus
MEMORY: Did you actually expect me to wirte anything here?
GPU: The reason i didnt go team green on this side is because the 750ti is much more expensive for not alot of gain on the compute side of things, but feel free to go with it becase it is more efficient. Otherwise the R7 260x is a great bang for the buck card (yay team red!). It also supports things like AMD's Mantle and TrueAudio as a bonus.
CASE: Looks great and has a fan and front usb headers what more do you want here?
PSU:Has all the connectors we need here and alot of overhang on the wattage side of things so that you can really push is with the overclocking.
CONCLUSION: This pc will not run three 4K monitors in surround but it will give gamers in a pinch what they want! Thank you all for reading this long description and I hope it will help any people getting into pc gaming an idea what to expect from the pc gaming commutnity!
PS: (feel free to add a fan or two!)
