Default What should I get? - 08-12-2012, 12:48 PM

I've been thinking about getting a new PC for a while now. I've had a laptop for years and it's finally dying on me, so it's really needed. However, when it comes to computers I'm absolutely clueless. I'm not looking for anything spectacular, just something decent that can play games like Diablo III and DayZ without the lagg. Ideally, I wouldn't really want to spend more than 350, but I'm willing to go to about 450 if I absolutely have to.

I've been looking around for quite a bit and I stumbled across these two:

ACER Aspire X1437 Desktop PC at cheap prices | Pcworld

Buy HP P6-2115EA | DESKTOP PC - Computer Base Units | Comet

What do you think? If you've seen better options for me, I'd really appreciate it if you posted them here so I can take a look.

Acers are alright, but not an ideal setup for gaming. They tend to overheat a bit, and HPs are the worst when it comes to over heating.

You said you have a budget of 300-450? Let me see if I can find you a good ASUS computer.

Edit: You know, you would have so much better luck by building your own...

Yeah I'm currently using an Acer laptop right now and it over heats quite often, although it's quite old now.

Yeah I know, I've been told so many times that I'd be better off building my own. I'm currently talking to someone about it now but they said I'd have to spend a little more. I know my budget is pretty low. I just literally have no idea when it comes to computers. I'd rather pay a little extra to make sure the job is done properly if you know what I mean. I know if I put it together, it would be a half arsed job.

I have an HP and I can attest to the fact that it overheats quite easily. I don't know if the age of the computer has anything to do with it, but it's uncomfortable to the touch after about 20 minutes of run-time.

As is my Acer. Maybe in a month or two I'll be able to spend a little more on it. Say, 500-650. That's still not the best budget to work with though.

I'm in the same sceanario as you so it will be good to see the outcome of this thread.

Persoanlly i was thinking instead of buying it all at once, just save up and but it part by pat.

This may turn out cheaper as....

Not a bad idea. But how do I know which parts are good and which aren't? How do I know if I'm getting good value for my money? It's all these things I need to take into account. I don't have the time or money to buy parts that may not be of any use to me. That's why I was hoping someone might be able to link me to some that aren't top of the line, but get the job done.

These are the fears i have myself.
I'm sure with other forums out there and plenty of guides you can;t go to wrong i guess.

Anyway GL

You'll honestly get the most bang for your buck when you buy ASUS, they're really fast, good, and reliable computers or labtops.
