Default Gaming PC? - 08-02-2012, 04:45 AM

Could someone please help me find a Gaming PC for upto £800?

It's not that im lazy, but more simply i don't know what i should be looking for, and what parts are good etc :/

So if you could recommend a PC? or PC build, offer me a link, or just simply tell me what key things i need t look out for <3

I heard that Alienwares don't really last that long, to be honest. I've never really heard of someone keeping one for more than a year.

If anything, get a cheap computer, and then buy some parts that are suggested to you buy other retailers. Look at the recommended specs of some games that have high-end quality output, such as Battlefield 3 and Crysis 2, maybe even Skyrim.

check out http://www.systemrequirementslab.com, look for Battlefield 3, and see the minimum specs needed to run the game. Then base your system's processor (Intel i7 works wonders, but that's one of the top processors from Intel. Might want to go for an i5. i3s are what most computers are nowadays.), RAM (I recommend at LEAST 4GB.), HDD (I recommend 500GB-1TB, most start at 1TB.).

All in all, try to build your own PC based on what specs that website gives you. Spend most of your money buying parts for a PC that you bought with $200. (Or pounds, I can't type that on my keyboard without ALT codes. ;D) Then finish it by buying parts to compliment your gaming experience.

My PC can run TF2 at a decent speed, not HIGH HIGH HIGH Quality, but it can run it with medium settings. I'm running a decent laptop that cost me $300.



You will be able to run Terraria, TF2, and maybe a few more Steam games. I don't do gaming on this a lot, but when I do, it's usually League of Legends and Steam (MTG: DoTPW 2013, TF2, Combat Arms, etc.)

Minecraft runs, but it's not very smooth. It's got FPS lag every now and again. Amnesia runs, but it's very choppy and slow. CoD will not run. Maybe because of the graphics, I have one of the Intel HD Chipsets. Those aren't very good for laptops, you can't change them unless you know what you're doing.

I want to build my own... but i don't know anyone good with computers so im scared of buying wrong parts, that either wont work, break my pc etc, i really don't know :s

But i heard its the best way to do it, and cheaper too :/

I guess the store might be able to help out?

If you don't like the anlienware I'd say you need atleast

4GB/ram to be able to run games smoothly, to talk on skype, etc all at once.

1TB harddrive if you're gonna stack up all those games you need some space.

something on or over the level of a GTX 560 videocard, to be able to play games good at high settings ( it's recommended for crysis 2, battlefield 3,....)

There's plenty of guides online on how to build your own PC. I'd give them a good read if you plan on doing that. To be honest, it's not as hard as you might make it out to be. You just have to know what slots do what in your PC's interior and what to put on your motherboard when you've understood everything else. There's no need for tools, no need for anything but your hands, your PC, and the parts you want to use.

I haven't built my own PC, but my father has worked for computer stores that put together PCs, take them apart, and they generally know what to do when it comes to building your own PC. He says it isn't hard if you know what goes where. Just be careful when putting things in, or else they'll snap. But you need to be putting a lot of force into those things for them to snap.

Good luck finding a PC, I don't think I can help very much after what I've given you. I can maybe recommend a few graphics cards, maybe a processor. But my knowledge doesn't go very far into specs.

HP Compaq Presario SR5605F 2.6GHz 250GB Desktop Computer (Refurbished) | Overstock.com

This is what i use. its pretty good for gaming. and cheap as fuck. but youll need to get a Wifi Adapter like this.

Belkin N600 DB Wireless Dual-Band USB Adapter | Staples®

With these Two, It wont be too costly, and runs really smoothly with all sorts of games, like SilGar, Runescape, Call of Duty, Combat Arms, Etc.

Don't ever buy alienware.. They suck bollocks.

---------- Post added at 06:07 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:52 AM ----------

I would go for a hp pavilion p6-2140eo..

Specs:

•Intel® Core™ i7-2600 - 3,4 GHz Quadcore

•8 GB DDR3

•1 TB SATA 3G (7.200 o/m)

•NVIDIA GeForce GT 530 (2 GB dedicated)

•6 USB 2.0

•HDMI and DVI

•Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n

•Weights 8 Kilo

- I got one myself and it can play All Points Bulletin, Battlefield 3, Skyrim and other hard games on Ultra graphics with no lagg at all.
