I would like someone to assemble me a gaming PC build that can also do some light 3D modeling (I use the CAD program Solid works) for around $200.

Please help!

What you mean?

They mean $200 is a ridiculously low budget to build a PC in even relatively cheap markets like the US, let alone Canada. It really can't be done well. Better off looking on eBay for a used Optiplex.

200 is to low for new parts if you what to go in that range of low you have to get used or a pre-built, and evan then its rilly just a web surfer not a gaming pc.

Dont want you to think people are just shrugging you off, but for Gaming you'd probably need a GTX 1050 for a good gaming experience and even then you wouldn't be able to run it on high settings, you'd have to turn some down.

The Cheapest one is shown below its $140 thats 70% of your budget in 1 part.

There is no room at all in the budget for a CPU, for a case, for the motherboard. Each of those parts are near $50 each or more. and we still aren't even close to a complete part list PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

This is about the cheapest you can go before you start getting into potato territory.

Sorry, its impossible. Especially for the job you want it to do.

And even if you get a Intel NUC, you should consider to upgrade to a bigger HDD and add more Ram.

However, I'm not 100% sure if CAD Solid works will run on that Intel HD IGP.

If it runs, rendering will be very very slow if the application doesn't freeze first. ;)

At $200 to build a pc is a very low budget. Usually if you want to build a pc you want it in the $600-700 area or if you are seriously constricted on money a $500 could work but $400 at the minimum and at $400-500 price point you cant even get a gaming pc with a 1050 without getting bottlenecks in cpu and mobo. Try and save/earn more money for yourself :)

If all you can dish out is $200 your best bet will be hunting for deals on Craigslist. If you can raise your budget up to around $400 you can go with a used pre-built from eBay and pair it up with a GTX 1050/1050Ti.

Impossible to do. Even if you double your budget you will still have to go the used route.

You might be able to hobble together an APU build, lol.
