As have been stated at my description, any thoughts on building a cheap and lasting gaming PC? My budget is rm 2000.

Anyway, any preference for AMD or intel? Since those 2 games are not complex, can ease off a bit for processor and go for better Graphics card.

Minimum 8GB ram, drop in a cheap 120GB SSD for OS, and you're golden.

Well I heard for processor, I should buy at least a i5 processor to make my PC last longer as in being relevant to run games for the next decade. For graphics card and ram, I'm thinking of buying a more powerful one to run csgo servers like zombie escape that has a bigger player capacity. For power supply, I'm still not sure. Isn't all power supplies the same? biggrin.gif

What's that is that the refresh rate for monitors? If so I'm hoping to get a monitor that has a higher refresh rate like 124hz
