Hello all, i want to create a 450 dollar PC build that can play games mainly like Dota 2, Skyrim,MMOs and other games with friends, i also want to use this tower for schoolwork as im going to be a freshmen in college soon.

any advice? what kind of rigs/parts should i get as i was hoping i could squeeze dual monitors because my sister who was in my major recommends

them.

 

TL;DR:

want a pc build for around 450- 550  that can play most titles at 1080p at high, or meduim, as well as good recommendations for monitors that wont pass  650 in total.

There is no way you will be playing games like skyrim on high 1080p, If I were you I would try to save up more money because $450 is nothing.

When you're ready for 1080p gaming, throw in a GPU. A 270X is the best cheap card for 1080p for the most part. But for now, you'll have your MOBAs playing great....and Skyrim at 720p.

if you are looking to play 1080p high-medium settings you might want to bump your budget to 650 minimum.

If my $300 laptop can run it on medium with 70+ mods at 40+ FPS then a $500 build can do it too.
