Hello everyone!

I am looking to build a PC. Not my first one, but I would like to keep it at $650, but be able to play games at a decent FPS/Graphics. I don't want to do a mini ATX build.

I prefer AMD (sue me I know haha) but build whatever you want.

This PC will be for just gaming. I have laptops for productivity.

I do NOT need a monitor, or operating system, or sound peripherals.

Thank you and happy building!

not really a good time to build a pc. Cryptocurrency miners have pretty much cleaned out all GPUs from every distributor, as a result, prices of even bad GPUs are all skyrocketing, and finding a gaming capable GPU is pretty hard.

might want to sit on this idea for a few months. else you'll pay too much and get too little.

Actually nothing wrong with AMD anymore now that Ryzen exists. I have a Ryzen build and an Intel build.

It hasn't affected the low end yet - you can still find 1050s at prices below $200. Anything above a 1050TI though and you're pretty much SOL right now unless you're willing to pay the premium.

That said here's what I would suggest:
