    Default Please. I'm not computer savvy could use the input of you comp. Geeks.

    Hi all. Playing Warframe mostly in terms of real graphics and using my computer for mostly streaming.

    I'm hoping to have more money down the road a little ways, but had my current computer finally die.

    I have been playing with a
    GTX 660 graphics card
    1 TB
    AMD 11 Processor
    Win 7

    Didn't mind Win 7. Anyway, I'm trying to keep my budget close to $500.00.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Owlinaz

    I came with a purpose, in the dark of the night.
    Then like I wasn't there, I was gone.

    Have a look at this: http://www.xtremegaminerd.com/build-...ler-gaming-pc/

    The recommendations aren't bad in my view, and while there may be a few slightly better selections, this would handle most of what you would throw at it.

    That's about as low as I would recommend for Warframe and Streaming. The 1060 will handle 1080p of most games like a champ. And the i3-6100 is a great upgrade over your old AMD CPU.

    He doesn't need HDD and Case, he could use old Case and HDD and save money. He also, doesn't need to buy a new Windows cause he has a Windows 7 key. He could try download Windows 10 from the Microsoft website and use Windows 7 key to activate. It used to work like that a couple month ago for sure. Although, I haven't tried it after free Windows 10 upgrade got stopped.

    So, considering all that then his build is roughly $500


    If his old PSU is around 550W then he could drop it off too and instead get a better GPU and CPU

    Nope. I wouldn't move a PSU from what looks to be a prebuilt. Wattage != Quality. G2 SuperNova's are the best Quality for the Price. Also, his current case may have bad airflow, so that would hinder components thermally.
