Hello everyone,

Currently, my computer is a 2006 Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop. When I got it, it was great. Now, it is old (obviously). I would very much like to put together a much more powerful (specifically towards gaming) desktop PC. Back in 2006 I paid much more attention to the current GPUs and other computer components, but now days I am totally out of the loop on this stuff.

I have come across a lot of web sites that describe their "budget build" which is usually like $ 700. I however cannot really determine if these proposed "budget builds" are a good idea.



So, what's the best bang for your buck if you are looking for components geared towards a nice gaming machine?
