Hi,
ive recently set my self the challenge of building myself a pc good enough to play the newest games but im not wanting to spend a huge amount of money on it. I will be wanting to upgrade it every couple of years to keep up to date with the latest games. I have a basic idea of what i need but a lot of the websites that offer advice on building a budget pc are out of date. My knowledge of the hardware required and whats compatible with what is not the best, so i was just wandering if anyone can offer me any advice, tips or any websites that i may not have came across.
Thanks

how much are you willing to spend?
your best bet is to go and purchase yourself a PC that has good memory, good HD and mobo from say Frys electronics for about 600$ and on the side buy a nice gaming video card, nvidia 9800 or something, swap the cards from your new PC and you have yourself a nice gaming PC ;)

thanx,
but i think thats a bit out of my price range, dont want to spend to much on it just yet because i can easily upgrade in a year or so, rather save a bit of money for a new tv for the bedroom that i can use for monitor as well.
