    I'm really interested in playing Beaming. I tried on a laptop, but it wasn't for gaming at all and had horrible graphics. Good frames though xD. I'm hoping to get good frames and just low to medium graphics. I want to build it myself. Can anybody make me a parts list for about 500-700$? (Cheaper would be nice but I want better performance)
    Thanks a lot

    I have a parts list set up I will get it to you when I get off of work. But embrace the quote from fivedollarlamp "Gamecube+Gamecube+2006 dell desktop= Xbox series X"

    I have 4 race sims so I have done everything as cheap as possible. I use Acer x6630g and put the MB in a regular case. Costs are usually something like this (in Australian dollars)
    $50 for the PC
    $5 for an ATX adapter
    $30 for an i5 CPU (optional if the PC comes with an I3)
    $100 for a GTX960
    $25 for some extra RAM

    EDIT: just saw your budget was $500-$700. You can add a second hand GTX1080 for $400 and a decent size SSD and this will run it really well. You would need a better than standard PSU

    What did you settle on? I'm looking to get a new PC.. If you didn't get it done then ryzen 5 or if 7/9 is cheaper get those.

    Oh cool. My budget is around 1 grand or less. I'm open to getting some expensive parts used

    Do you have discord? That would make this much easier
