    Yeah because the average gamer runs benchmarks all day instead you know playing games.

    There is no denying that Intel are leading the cpu race but not everyone can afford the premium that Intel offer,to say AMD cant cut it as a gaming platform is spurious at best and fanboyism at its worst.

    And who the fuck are you calling kid? Patronizing twat.

    My point is the way you dismissed AMD as a viable option for gaming for people on a budget.Not everyone is tech a god like yourself.

    If you can find me a prebuilt Intel based computer that comes with Windows and that can run games at 1080p on high settings for 500 quid then i will say "yeah you got me there" because i looked and i couldn't find one.

    I just bought a pc from ccl with a 7850 graphics card, 8 gig ram, and Intel i5 3450 processor for 600, not including monitor and kb&m.

    With an Intel i3 3220 processor and 7770 graphics card it would have been just over 500.

    Bit late back to this but I see rodpad has already posted a 'premium' intel offering for a similar price which should perform better.

    It's not about picking your favorite chip manufacturer, it's about helping a fellow forumite out by giving them the choice of a superior product for the same money.

    ...and i was calling you a kid.

    Intel i5-3450 CPU with an AMD 7770 GPU there for 510.
    Oh i see the 7770 is shit on an AMD system but its ok on an Intel system and add in the fact that that it comes with no operating system either.Where as he could buy this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/140814887846?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2648 for 12 quid more have a better graphics card that over clocks like a beast and comes with Windows.

    Try harder.

    @rodpad - the price of the one I mentioned included windows, so probably pretty much identical in price if you factor that in.

    Still, I'm happy with the one I bought. Don't need top specs so should be more than enough with the 7850 and i53450.

    On the whole AMD debate, as long as your pc plays the games you want then it really doesn't matter whether others think its shit. The amount of conflicting advice on the internet about pcs is ridiculous, I've found.

    And that was the point i was trying to make,for 520 quid i can go out and buy a machine that out of the box can play the latest games at high settings.I just refuse to accept peoples notions that AMD cant cut it as a gaming platform.

    If i had the extra cash quid i would of gone Intel i5 all the way but i never so i was looking for the best bang for my buck possible as it were and that happened to be AMD.

    And im pretty disraught at that i5 rig as i would of bought that at that price when i bought my PC a month ago.Freshtech you cunts.

    So hang on, you're saying that at this moment in time you'd buy the i5 pc over a AMD pc for the equivalent price. Isn't that exactly what we've been saying to the OP with the link on the last page?

    @Buztafen Your damn right i'd buy the i5 system for 508 seeing as the only game i really play on PC is EvE Online and Club Penguin (Kids) so i could upgrade at a more leisurely pace,but back then that PC was 657.But for someone like kadoosh who wants to play games like BF3 or its ilk on decent settings and on a limited budget today then you cant discount an AMD system.Savvy?

    Betfenix shinobi case
    Corsair 650w psu
    I5 3570k
    Sapphire 7850 OC edition (and then overclocked again)
    8gb ram
    128gb Samsung ssd
    2tb hdd
    Blu ray burner
    Gigabyte z77 mobo
    Lg ips 23" monitor
    Ms wireless mouse & keyboard

    All came to about a grand. That runs pretty much everything on max detail @ 60fps at 1080p, apart from a couple of things (pCARS and sleeping dogs for me) where I either have to knock a setting or two down a notch or accept fewer fps. Will probably update the GPU next year at some point, but the 7850 is nearly 200 cheaper than - gtx 670 at the moment and simply isn't worth it for me at present - I would barely notice any difference

    If you're seriously on a tight budget, an A10 APU and no GPU with 8GB 1600 DDR will run most games very nicely.

    It's okay, more to save you less polite people!



    That's a full PC, bar peripherals, built on an A10. You could cut it down easily by using a cheaper, lower power PSU, but 410 for a full PC and Windows is pretty damn good.

    You could probably take at least 50 off that by being clever about how you are getting win 8

    Shouldn't this be the AMD thread, instead of budget thread? ;)

    Thanks for all the input.. seems people are pretty pasionate about this stuff!

    so, with a 500 budget..is this the best I can get? Puts me over with a OS though.. really don't know what to go for now!

    also just found this.. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VIBOX-BLADE-78-POWERFUL-GAMING-PC-COMPUTER-INTEL-i5-USB3-16GB-GT610-/200835008007?pt=UK_Computing_DesktopPCs&hash=item2ec2b30607

    just for the purpose of this post, im looing to play BF3, hGost Recon Online a bit, and would like the option to play most games without having to drop teh settings too much. Quite alt to ask on a budet I know!

    Do you need a monitor included for that price? The graphics card doesn't look all that great on your link.

    At CCL you can get an Intel i3 3220 and nvidia 650 graphics card for 510. If you want to spend an extra 100 I can send you the spec of the one I just ordered if you like?
