Crunching The Numbers: How Does A Budget $750 Gaming PC Perform?

Forbes - In this special installment of Crunching The Numbers, I shift the critical gaze inward to analyze the performance of my personal $750 gaming PC build — before I give it away to one lucky reader.

As many of you know, I recently undertook a tricky challenge: Build a powerful gaming PC within the confines of a $750 budget. Beyond posting respectable benchmark scores, it had to include both solid state and mechanical drives, as well as a copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8. (PC)

I went PC in late 2011 and I'll NEVER go back to consoles for multi-plats.

and when all the hype and console biased media coverage fades, the best exclusives that stand the test of time are mostly on PC these days.

I built a PC for around $700 and that included Windows. It runs great and has a 660 TI.

You can definitely build a great gaming PC for around $750 that will play almost anything at 1920x1080 resolution and 60 fps.

You can build a good gaming pc, but you wont be running games at 1080p and 60 fps for $750, unless you find some very good deals and that would take time, which people don't want to wait for.

I love pc gaming I don't buy all multi-plays on my pc, because I'm weird and like to play the game on the system it first came out on.

I understand where you're coming from... but some PC "ports" do improve a LOT when played on PC. I like to wait for PC iterations myself.
