    So sooner or later i'll be buying a gaming pc and my budget will be 800Eur (maximum),
    what can i get for such a price? and what would be best for gaming and video making (editing,recording)?
    This will give me some idea on what should i purchase when the time comes.

    If anyone has time to give feedback about their choice of parts, then go to this link: (Just press on the appropriate picture to choose the parts, i think you guys know how to find what you need)
    and maybe post your results of what a 800Eur budget Desktop could be.

    hmmmm well I built my buddies for under 500 US but it was only so he could play I racing.
    It kinda depends on what games your wanting to play and at what quality A MSI 970 goes for about 300-320 US and i5 on amazon for about 210 US. Motherboard would be your preference.

    You will want a i5 quadcore probably a 970 ( do however look at the r9 480) but if you want to record get 2 hard drives one for os and games one for recording to it will make everything so much smoother. 8+ gb of ram ( you shouldnt need more than 16 or 32) but 8 is normally a good place to start
    Skywere and zidane2 like this.

    Bloody hell, 800€ is a really small amount :/

    I'd wait a bit and save up a little bit more
    However the new Amd GPU that is coming out will be pretty cheap compared to it's performance similar to the nvidia 980

    Yeah its a read write speed thing if you are writing to the disk reading will be slower etc. but good luck! hope what ever you get works out for you

    u could maybe get an i3, 8gb ram and gtx 750ti. It should fit that budget i guess. Games not specified so an average 750ti should be okay

    You could go for something like this you can go alittle cheaper in the motherboard or drives and go for a better card or you can go amd gpu or something but this is a quick pc list I tossed together PC PART LIST

    Do you have a local hardware store, and if you do could you acquire a catalog from them and put it here?

    If you are buying a pc and not build it, you may discuss with pc building store for the spec. Normally pc buiding store will help you figure out your requirement and not exceed your budget.

    With the suggestions my setup would be like this:
    power supply - INWIN 650W, GREENME 650, APFC, 80+ BRONZE
    main board - ASUS B150M PRO GAMING
    processor - Core i5-6500 (4C/4T, 3.2GHz, 6MB, 65W)
    Ram - 2x8GB CRUCIAL 16GB, DDR4, 2133MHZ, CL15, KIT OF 2
    graphics card - ASUS GEFORCE GTX 960, 4GB, GDDR5, TURBO OC
    Its a bit over 800€, 847€ to be exact =].

    For the GPU, you could go for the GTX 970, when the new Pascal series releases, because surely the price of the older models will drop.

    i'll keep that in mind.
  16. It should be an easy task to build a system for 800euros. I would start by scavenging as much as I could. Look around for cheap/free cases and power supplies and put as much money as possible into the CPU and GPU. If this is your first system, you will not notice the limitations due to your budget.

    I completely overbuilt my desktop and was somewhat unimpressed with it, UNTIL I used someone else's system and realized my computer is truly a speed demon. But, it is not VR capable and I will need to upgrade the GPU. Thankfully, the motherboard I bought will allow for installation of a GTX 1080 and bring it back on par with the fastest stuff out there. So spec for future upgrades and buy what you can afford.

    the thing to be wary with are cheap powersupplies if it breaks it can take a whole system with it and somtimes even your home I would try to get something higher than an 80+ bronze
