I'm building my own budget gaming PC and I need help choosing a processor. I want AMD because they're cheaper and better value than intel. Which would you recommend? Id like to play Minecraft with all settings on high with no lag, and maybe a game like Alpha Protocol on medium settings. If you have any other helpful info please share. Thanks
Got a Phenom II 840 last year for 90$, and a free motherboard!
For really good deals, try Slickdeals. The highly rated deals are always the best. Recently there was an HD 6670 on sale for 40$ after rebate, and a free game:
Got one myself. It's supposed to be able to handle Battlefield 3 on medium-high settings, and should have no problems with any of the two games listed. It's probably one of the best cards out there for gamers on a budget.
