Hey whats up everyone! I know that you’ve already taken a look at my budget office build (and if you haven’t, please do!) and am wondering well, how do I convert this cheap build to play games?

Well, it’s easy! All you need to do is make a single modification and you can easily make to the office build a decent budget gaming build!


Recommendation: Buy a video card

XFX AMD Radeon HD 6870

The Radeon HD 6870 is an excellent choice for those who need to be able to play some games on a budget. At a price of ~$170 (Amazon at the time of this article) this card is among the top performers for the price. In addition to the excellent performance of this card, XFX also offers a double lifetime warranty so you know that the card will far outlive its useful life.
