• Best parts for source (Garry's Mod)

I'm building a computer and I am wondering what the best parts are for Garry's Mod
Source doesn't require very high system specs. However, garrysmod benefits more from a strong cpu due to Lua. Keep in mind that Lua isn't multithreaded.
If you're on a budget, an AMD APU would work fine. I have a frankenrig with an A8-6500 and it runs Gmod at 40-70 fps if you aren't on a server that has tons of Lua mods.
Well, yes, if Gmod/Source games are the only things you're planning to use it for, something like this would work: [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Lj5GDNd.png[/IMG] However, if you want a more powerful budget-build, I'd recommend something like this: [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/HOMHHUG.png[/IMG] (Add an additional 4GB RAM stick for a subtotal of 487 dollars) With that, you'll be able to play any modern title, and the graphics card is also bundled with three games that you are allowed to choose yourself. To be perfectly honest, I'd recommend the Intel system in any case. Sure, it may cost 150 dollars more, but you get a [B]much[/B] more competent machine for that (relatively) small extra cost.
Why a 500gb drive for 49$ when you can get a Tb for like $54?

270 actually performs better, but you can get a 270x for 99 on ncixus right now.
