Build Your Own PC and Get More Bang for the Buck

ExtremeTech has overhauled its Bang for the Buck PC Build guide to present gamers with a formula for building a rig that will perform without breaking their budget. What makes this collaborative effort different from past articles is that the article will show you how to a system comprised of bang for the buck components. The results are guidelines for a highly customizable system that includes the latest tech advances like blu-ray and 64 bit computing.

PC titles are not all as demanding on your system as Crysis. However games are still pushing PCs to their limits and beyond at an incredible pace. Brand new gaming rigs go from shiny to holding their own to obsolete so quickly you don’t have the time or money to keep up. With some know how and a modest amount of cash you can have a PC that will give you the performance you crave.
