A gaming pc for 200 ??

One of our Nephews is looking for a gaming PC for under 200. I'm thinking something with onboard GFX so he can add that at a later date. What do people think ?

Re: A gaming pc for 200 ??

From personal experience of cheaping out on a PC, I'd say hold off till he has a bit more. Probably more like 400 min. otherwise his stuff will be out-dated far too quickly.

If he got a decent i5, decent MOBO, few sticks of RAM and a HDD, that should be okay for starting out. Could grab a cheapo graphics card, as long as he's not wasting too much money on stuff he'll upgrade at a later date.

Re: A gaming pc for 200 ??

I've got some spare parts:

RAM - (4-8GB)
Mobo - [Asus P7P55D LE]
Graphics - [Radeon HD5850]
CPU - i5 (i think)

Just needs a case, PSU, and maintenance (pretty sure theres something wrong with the mobo, damn sure theres something wrong with the gfx - I opened it up and not sure I put it back together correct way)

I can bring it along to the next LAN


I was using these parts for BF 3 and I think for BF4 beta
