Cheap PC

 

This would be where I would start. I listed a 320m motherboard which will be fine with that cpu if it has a newer bios, but if you want to make sure there aren't any issues with bios you could pick up a 450 board for about 15-20 bucks more... which does go a little over your budget by about 10 bucks.

 

Either way this would give you a solid build that can game just fine.

I am wanting to build a gaming PC but as a poor 14-year-old, I can't really afford a high-end pc as something I would want. I am looking at a budget of about $571. What would be the best parts for my gaming PC and in my budget?

Go used. Ideally, you would find an X58 setup and get a new GPU (or a used one if you can find one), but unless you can find a decent X58 motherboard and at least an i7 (a Xeon would be ideal) for under $150, that's not really gonna happen.

How's this for you? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/PHHM7W

Asus RX 570s frequently go on sale for $130, so keep your eyes peeled.

Used matter?


Pro tip, before you reply to an question or topic, answer these three questions:

 

1) Do I actually have an answer for OP at all?

2) Am I giving an answer that is based in multiple reliable source tests and not personal opinion or heresay?

3) Is my answer on topic, clear and concise?

 

If you answered "no" to any of those, close the tab.

Do not give people information you personally think is correct. Source, research and then reply. If you plain and simple don't know what you're talking about, don't talk about it. It's harmful to support questions on forums to be providing people with wrong or misleading information. As well as going off topic from the original question.

i.e. "What B360 motherboard should I buy?"

>someone replies with a PC partpicker list with a ryzen system

Not what was asked.
