Need helping build a (very) low budget computer

Naimdor

Hi guys,

My girlfriend want to buy her littler brother a new pc.

His old computer (ddr2 old) is not working for couple of years.

We need the cheapest computer mainly for study and just browsing the web but the kid want to play a bit.

I think that as long as he'll be able to run games (not even at 1080p) it'll be ok.

I know he want to play CS GO mainly.

 

what do you guys think? what can we do for him?

I bought my Pc (4670K r9 290) more than a year ago so i really dont know what is going on these days, with the new gpu generation and cpu generations.

 

Thank You!!

What is the exact budget? Or are you just trying to do as cheap as possible? What's the location? I mean, US/UK/AU etc?

If we're talking new, for 300$ you can get a build that's capable of running games like Battlefield 4/GTA V at playable framerates:

Yes, the iGPU in these little APUs is amazing in what it can do.

Watch this:

 

It's the lowest-end build you should get, will run CS:GO great.

Not sure how well it'll translate to Israeli currency but here's a good build for $500 USD:

Alternatively, going with @Morgan MLGman's build is what I'd recommend personally. It's a lot cheaper and should definitely be within your budget regardless of currency, and will run CS:GO fine.

'Fanboyism is stupid' - someone on this forum.

Be nice to each other boys and girls. And don't cheap out on a power supply.
