€800 Build for Gamming & Edition

  • 60 months ago

Budget: €800

Location: Portugal

Use: 70% Gamming, 30% Editing Software

No peripherals or operating System required

Hey! Need help in building a rig that can run smoothy the latest from the COD, GTA and Far Cry series but that could also perform with editing software like photoshop and an DAW for music recording, not for professional use but reliable nonetheless..

the main doubts are with the GPU and the CPU (amd vs intel) not being a rig exclusively for gaming which one serves me best?

Thanks in advance

For your budget, and based on the fact I had to use the Italian version of PCPP which has little selection and the silliest prices, I had to go with AMD.

Please use the US version! More interested in knowing the best parts avaible than the prices at this stage.. and I´ll probably end up buying here at a local store anyway!
