Hi, while I'm fairly comfortable with PC's I've never attempted to build my own, and I'm hoping for some advice with a very specific project. I have exactly $630 to spend on a gaming PC but there are some conditions:
1) I need a motherboard, processor, RAM, power supply, video card, and possibly a case and fans (Are 8+ year old tower cases still compatible with new builds? If so I don't need a case, but I might need some fans still, I dunno). I don't need an OS, hard drives, or DVD drive. Did I miss any components? If things like heat paste or any other special stuff is needed when putting together a PC, then I need that too.
2) I have exactly $630 to spend, not a penny more, and that needs to INCLUDE tax (6.75%) and shipping charges.
3) Everything has to come from http://www.tigerdirect.com/ only. I know other places like Newegg probably have better prices but I have to purchase from tigerdirect regardless.
So, is it possible to make a good gaming PC on this budget and with these restrictions? Thanks!
