Does anyone know the cheapest POSSIBLE gaming pc to run GTA 5? I don't care of the price but the cheapest to atleast run a SMOOTH 30fps or 60fps. I'm really tired of trying to run it at a really unstable 20fps with integrated intel graphics. Thanks!

Buy a used 4th/5th gen i5 tower system from Dell/HP/etc... with a 320 + watt or so PSU. Put in an nVidia 950 card, Should be about $200 total.

Would help if you listed your current system, you may be able to just upgrade that, or move some parts into a new setup, say the CPU if it's good, RAM, etc..

My current build doesnt have a graphics card slot so that would be useless

A 120gb ssd is all but useless. They will fill up way too fast. Even a 240 is starting to be too small, with game sizes being so large. What is the absolute max, that you are willing to spend? Building a system for only a single game, unless said title requires a really high end rig, isn't a very good idea. You might be able to play GTA V, but there very well could come a new game, that won't fare so well.
