HELP ME!
I recently decided to purchase a new gaming computer, but I'm having trouble deciding of which one's are good or bad!
Is this a good one? It seems freaking beast to me! My budget is around $1300

If not, plz tell me if you found a better one or give me some tips of finding a good one!
Thank you.

I'd love to help but unfortunately I'm not very tech savvy... a few people on the forums would definitely be able to help though! :D

I would suggest building your own. Start with a CPU and find compatible parts. This site is great for building your own and it shows you other peoples builds who used the same parts.

I've actually considered doing that, but I know its a lot easier to buy one. I don't think I'm ready to take a step to building my own though. But I will look into that. Thank you Vengaboy!

Way too expensive for what you get. Ill check around for something cheaper that gets the job done.

Yea, seems overpriced.
Little tip, get the main components first. I.E.: Motherboard, CPU, Video card, maybe ram. Then just get a regular case and stuff like keyboard, mouse, hard drive.

Remember, You can ALWAYS upgrade your computer later.

He i looking for a pre-built one because he doesn't want to have to build one.

It's a lot easier than you think but I understand if you don't feel ready. Look at the supercombos on Newegg. Sometimes they have builds that aren't a complete PC, just basic components they know work together (CPU/cooler, Mobo, GPU, power supply, case, RAM) and get a small discount. Then find everything else you want later (sound card, monitor, mouse/keyboard, speakers, etc) Find a CPU you want to work with and look at combos using that CPU. Do you plan to overclock hardware?

I still suggest you build your own. You'll enjoy it more knowing you built it.

Also, this might be worth a look - http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=745567

I really don't want to overclock it, I feel its not really worth it!
