I was hoping to get advice on what computer build I should try for. The current ones I'm deciding on are a $400 budget one, $500 budget one, and a $600 budget one..

I'm looking to be able to play games such as Sims 3, Civilization IV, and Europa Universalis III at maximum quality very smoothly. I also hope to play the upcoming games Starcraft II and Civilization V smoothly as well.

Which build should I go for for an enjoyable time playing these sort of games, while spending the least amount of money possible? And should I make any modifications to a build if I were to choose it?

I recommend looking over the game system requirements and working from there. Find the game with largest needs, and build around that. Then maybe go up a processor or two, or more if it's affordable or in your budget.

Might look at what others have done, such as Maximum PC, PC World or some of the other well known computer and parts sites.

Good luck!
