Want a good bang for your buck gaming PC?   
Intel i7-3770K   
Nvidia GeForce GTX 670   
8-16 GB RAM   
A decent hard drive   
500W or higher PSU   
Motherboard that fits the CPU   
   
And don't any 						*******					 dare say 680 over 670. Costs about 35% more and only has 5% better performance.

Anything below a Geforce -50 for me is just nope.
You could consider a GTX 650 or 650 Ti. Pretty cheap, really small, almost no power consumption, and almost as powerful as those good old GTX 280's.

3770K? 8-16GBs of RAM? 670? Are you seriously trying to talk "Bang for your Buck" here?

How about considering that the i5 2500K and the 7870 (or 7950) is more than enough to run all the latest games with ease since the 7870 is equivalent to the 580. And why would you even suggest 16GBs of RAM for a "Cheap" Gaming PC when you should clearly know 8GBs is more than enough.

It all depends on your budget, of course. But the price/value is good for those specs, believe me. With those specs I meant high end, but not overpriced.. xD

For a cheaper PC, I'd probably go with:
2500K / 2600K
GTX 660 Ti
8GB RAM

Either way, both are more than worth the price.

Just go with a Phenom X4 and overclock it, a hell of a lot more bang for your buck than with an Intel equivalent.

Nyaaah, most games are optimized better for intel. AMD has cheaper alternatives with equal core numbers and clock speeds, but they aren't as stable and run warmer when overclocking. If you want a mid-end budget PC, AMD is better, but for something above $1500, I'd go for intel.

Well no **** . You said "bang for your buck" not "deep wallet, shallow soul" or anything.

Really though, that term is kinda broad.

If you have a $2000 computer that's 3x as powerful as a $1000 computer, well... do the math. Apart from the budget, the price/performance ratio is what matters.

The 670 is awesome for that, because it's basically a 680 that's at least $100 cheaper, and 95% as good.

GTX 560 Ti master race

That's a good bang for your buck card!

Thanks, didn't have a lot to work with on a $700 budget.

O.o   
AMERICA IS CHEEP COUNTRY, COUSIN! LEND OF OPPORTOONETY!   
   
But srs, that's cheap. I live in Norway and bought a PC in 2009 (just the tower) for the equivalent of about $900.   
   
Asus P5Q Pro   
Intel E8400   
GTS 250   
4GB RAM   
500W PSU   
   
Very simple computer, nothing fancy, just decently powerful hardware. Worked awesomely for it's time. Kinda outdated now only having dual core and a slow hard drive, though.   
   
And I dunno why I like this gif.

Intel i7-3770K? Please tell me you're overclocking that thing
#174 to #127 - sniffythebird (10/21/2012) [-]
I didn't buy a new comp yet, but if I did get one with those specs, of course I'd OC the 3770K. Either that or save some money and get a 2600K instead.   
   
That with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo can kick some serious ass, from what I've heard.   
   
Right now I'm content with my current computer, so yeah.. gonna pass on that.

Just making sure. I once met some retard who decided to buy the UNLOCKED FOR OVERCLOCKING processor and NOT overclock it. Sounds like a good rig, if you were to build it I think you'd be good for just about anything
