Hi rms7806, Posted Image

Helpers on this site are volunteers, many have full time work, they give free advise when they have time, so instant replies are not likely.

As a summer project i would like to build my first gaming PC. as an engineering student as well as a console gamer (entering into PC gaming) i need a powerful PC that can handle games like BF3, Crysis, etc and also gpu/cpu intensive software like SolidWorks, MATLAB, LabVIEW, etc. The only thing is, i have a limited budget of $800.

A top gaming rig will work well with a SB 2500K, (no Hyper Threading) But will not perform well for a workstation (the more cores the better, Hyper Threading)
With a limited budget, I advise going for the best core components and building up as required.

Have a look at this thread, follow links as well. > https://forum.solidw...om/thread/55131
