Interested in building an affordable gaming PC? The guys from Corsair published a guide about this subject a couple of days ago:
PC gaming is exceptionally popular and can be a lot of fun, but nobody likes trying to run a modern high-end game on a 3 year old, outdated system. At the same time, not everyone wants to drop thousands upon thousands of dollars on the most ridiculously equipped gaming rig from a specialty boutique computer builder.

So what's the answer? Believe it or not, it's possible to get great gaming performance from a system that doesn't necessarily break the bank. Our goal today is to talk about building the best possible system you can for around $1500 US at the time of this writing. With some careful component selection, a little bit of knowledge, patience, and some tweaking, you can build a rock-solid gaming box.
