!!!!!!!!excited!!!!!

My daddy is retiring soon and he said he would upgrade. my current pc is experience disk failure lately. He said yes but now he saw it would cost +R5000 and it turned him down. hope his not changing his mind. So want a new pc.

He said the pc must be able to play bf4 and use it to download movies.
Is there any way to lower cost but retain performance.
Will be playing bf3 bf4 fifa 14 and far cry 3 on 1024x768 HD.
Any suggestion will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Thermaltake? really?

Go for an apu instead as I believe that the r240 xfires with the gpu on the apu

What about something like the AMD build here? Minus the SSD and aftermarket CPU cooler (would recommend to upgrade that later though) and getting a 750k instead of the 760k this might be within your budget?

Maybe a slightly cheaper GPU as well but you might be able to get an R7 260.

Is that gpu necessary? isn't the R7 260 perfectly fine to run bf 4 in 1080p

The CPU has no iGPU and it's really cheap so a decent GPU should fit in the budget. An R7 260x (which I think is an HD7770 rebadge) would be fine at 1080p with low-med settings but if you can fit a better one in it's always... better!

Edit; What about that new R7 265?
