    Building a decent gaming PC

    Currently, I've got an ACER Aspire laptop that can run GMOD on low graphics... at like 5fps when online. Sadface.
    Because of this, I'm planning on building a custom gaming PC. Here's what I've got so far.

    Processor: AMD A10-5800K
    Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 650
    RAM: About 4GB, maybe 8GB.
    Motherboard: Undecided
    Storage: 12GB SSD, or just a simple HDD

    This was after a quick google search, I'm on a tight budget here therefore I can't spend much on this things. I've been advised to spent allot on the graphics card and less on the other components. Idk.
    I need your advice on any changes or additions to the things I've got in mind.
    Thanks.

    GTX 650 is a budget card, what are you talking about? There's better ways to spend your money, though.

    Budget is about 300-700ish
    I'm going for budget btw, the components I can get for cheap but can run games well. Example: Arma 2/3

    Looking to make my own PC using this guide, I was going to get the steam box but it won't be out in time for ArmA III or TES:O. I'm on a decent budget with it too, but still need moar.

    If you're on a budget you'll get the most value from AMD for both your CPU and GPU. More bang for your buck in both departments without the premium that Nvidia and Intel carry. Don't cheap out on a power supply and a case, both can be used for multiple builds. Most motherboards have a lot of unnecessary features that most people don't use. If you're not going to SLI/multi-monitor don't even bother with features that cater to that crowd.

    "There is a cult of ignorance in TnB, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Dave Brown March 20th, 2008
