Default Gaming Computer, need advice - 09-28-2012, 08:45 AM

yeah so i'm looking to purchase a gaming computer

getting pretty sick of using this shitty mac laptop and xbox is kind of getting boring

especially when you know you can pirate everything nowadays so yeah.

kind of need help with the specs with the tower, already got a monitor sorted

so what kind of reqs for a gaming computer with the budget of like $1000 that would be good for todays new games?

For $1000 you can get a custom built PC using mostly AMD parts that should literally run the newest released games with the top graphics etc.

I would go for something along these lines:

CPU: AMD Phenmon II x6 (should be around 3.2-3.4GHz if you overclock it.)
Graphics Card: Nvidia are always a good company to use, since they usually work with everything. Go for something that has at least 1GB of graphical memory.
Motherboard: You can really have a good look around here, I would go for an ASUS of some kind, since those are basically the AMD motherboards. Make sure it has DDR3 RAM slots as well.
RAM: RAM is cheap as chips, so splash out and get 6GB, if money gets constrained go for 4GB.
HDD: Whether you use up a lot of space IDK, go for anything 500GB+. SEAGATE is always a good company to use for Hard Drives.
CASE: Really just have a look around online for one you want, make sure it is a full tower though, and if it comes with Fans, all the better.

You can use Companies to build you your own Custom PC, so you basically just choose the insides you want, and they build and send it to you. I would recommend this If you aren't too good with computers, since building it yourself is definitely tricky if you don't know what you are doing (:

Hope this helps!


EDIT: I just went onto any random Custom Pc site, and did the "build your own" option, one that I pretty much just described in terms of Spec came out to just under $1000 when I checked on a currency converter I will write down exactly what I put below:

CPU: AMD A8-3870K APU
Motherboard: ASUS F1A75-V EVO: FM1 A-SERIES, SATA 6.0GB/s, USB 3.0
RAM: 8GB K INGSTON HYPERX GENESIS DUAL-DDR3 (2x4GB kit)
Graphics Card: 1GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX650
HDD: 1TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s HDD with 32MB CACHE

Power Supply: CORSAIR 650W ENTHUSIAST SERIES TX650
PROCESSOR COOLING: SUPER QUIET 22dBA TRIPLE COPPER HEATPIPE AMD CPU COOLER

This also came with W7 Home Premium and a 3 Year Warranty (:



BIG thank you to Shane for this awesome sig!

This is what I bought recently.

Custom Build PC | Gaming PC | Desktop PC | Gaming Laptops PC - MESH Computers - Award Winning Since 1987 - Customise your Matrix 4100 PC

It works perfectly. Remember that just because you have a budget of $1000, that doesn't mean you need to spend it.

It is fair to say you don't need to spend it, it is totally up to him. I would go for it myself though, since you know then you wont need to upgrade it for a good while.

I mean mine is a 6 year old Custom Rig, which within the last year or so has had most of its parts replaced, due to them dying and/or just being not good enough :P

5 years wasn't a bad run though!
