Advice for new build for Fiance - $1000

Recommended Posts

My Fiance wants me to build her a pc so she can game with me in my office. She said she only wants to spend around $1,000 and asked if that was possible. If you guys could send a list of parts for a build or a link to a build for around this cost it would be greatly appreciated. It doesn't need to run things at max graphics, but I don't want something that constantly lags and gives issues. I already have a nice monitor, keyboard, mouse for her to use.

Or if anyone has some parts off an old build lying around that they don't need, I can even paypal some money pending the parts work.

Thank you,
Tony C

A tad over budget, but its possible to bring it down a bit. This is a pretty solid build that would last her a while.

Resolution the monitor is just a 1080p, build is just for PC portion. I already have extra gaming keyboard, mouse, and speakers. So the case and its components.

I play games like D3, LoL, Starcraft II. She likes Sims and games of that nature.

So do you really want to spend 1000? It doesn't take much of a computer for those games at 1080p, could save some $ and still have more than enough computer.

I would look into getting an APU for a build like this. And then in the future a gpu could be added if the apu isn't keeping up.
