What is the cheapest gaming pc I can buy/build?
I am looking to buy a gaming pc but I also want to spend as little money as possible on it. I want to know what the least amount of money I can spend would be to be able to buy or at least build a computer that will play at least RPGs even if I have to lower the settings a bit. I hate not being able to play anything and all that i am looking to do is to change that so I can play most things on low settings.

Cheapest way to get a gaming PC?
I'm looking at getting into game design/programming. I know that requires a pretty powerful desktop to render/run the program. I was looking at building a PC. However, I'm not so sure I have the abilities to do that. I was also looking at a barebone PC. I'm not sure what parts it comes with, though. Buying a prebuilt PC is a no-no. Too expensive. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113286 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128565 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104360 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182278 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148840 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823109233 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811154095 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009316 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125502 These are what I was looking at. I don't remember, but I think it's $700. Quite a bit. However, computers ARE expensive. Should I go with 16 gigs of RAM, or 8? I'm going to be doing game/graphic design. At my school, the computers have 4 gigs, and I can just barely get by. As for Derek, I think he's right, to an extent. Oh, no I mean all the parts I picked were about 700 in total. I don't have a budget. I'll get what I need to get.

Building a Custom Gaming PC?
Hi, i'm making the switch from console gaming to PC, i'm building my own PC to try to save some money and get the experience of building my own PC. I would like some advice as to witch hardware such as CPU's GPU's i should buy. Any input and help is appreciated. First off like i said its going to be a gaming computer i want to be able to play any new pc game on the highest setting possible without problem. Id personally would like dual graphics cards but if i could get it done with one that would be good too. Also i want to be able to go beyond 1080p. i've heard of 4k HD, but is there higher?? if so i would like the ability of my computer to support it. Ive read that some games depend more on CPU than GPU? Which brings me to the question of which CPU? Ive heard Intel is a little better but AMD is cheaper? Now to the computer case/chasis? i would like something that looks cool w/ alot of room and nice ventilation and cooling but at a low cost. And what about sound cards? i havent done much research on these but some custom PC's that i've seen other people build, a sound card wasn't bought or on the list? Motherboards? RAM? HDD? Optical Drive? Also, cooling? what options do i have should i go with water cooling or Heatsinks? Whats best cost/performance?. This is basically all i have at the moment, there are still a number of things i know i have to keep in mind... Help?

Building a Custom gaming PC?
Im looking into getting some sort of gaming PC and I need some advice. I really like the alien wares, but it seems everyone finds them to be rubbish and overpriced. Is this true or is it just something a kind of elitist says? I also hear a lot of talk about building a custom PC, but is this a truly viable option? And is it really all that cheaper compared to simply buying a prebuilt alien ware? You see, I have never put together a computer before, so obviously I wouldn't know what I was doing when I tried to build one. How hard is it and how long did it take for you to build your first PC? Is there anywhere that I could possibly find a guide? So, what do you think? Try and build my own or buy an alien ware?

What parts should I use to build a high performance gaming PC?
I want to buy a custom gaming PC. This desktop would be specifically for games so functionality isn't that important to me.

However, anything cheaper is also okay! I know that I want the CPU to be from intel, and I would like an nvidia GeForce graphics card. But all other parts are up in the air! I do not have a monitor or an OS either (but I have an idea for both) so you can throw those in for suggestions as well!

Im looking to get a gaming pc for about €800, I know that it is alot cheaper to just build a custom PC but I do not feel that I would be able to do that.

How many watts of power will I need for my gaming computer?
This summer I plan on building my own gaming PC and assembling it at home because it is cheaper and I like to customize things myself. It is an 850 dollar computer but the specs are exceptional. For the motherboard and processor, I am following a YouTube tutorial. In the YouTube video it says only 500 watts of power are needed, but in the comment section somebody (who was picked for best answer) claims that you actually need at least 630. I am planning on getting a 750 watt battery anyways, but if I don't need to, I'll try and get something cheaper.

What gaming PC should I ask for this Christmas?
This Christmas I am asking for a new gaming PC so that I can start playing more PC games on my computer again. The thing about my current PC is that I don't think that the new PC games that I want to play on it will run smoothly. Some of the games I plan on playing are Final Fantasy XIV 2.0 (assuming it turns out to be really good when the relaunch of it happens), Diablo 3, might consider getting Skyrim (because the PS3 version is just CRAP), and might try some shooters if I feel like it. My current computer runs actually pretty good except the graphics card keeps overheating when I play a game. Be it a flash game (like a fb game) or try an online game like Final Fantasy XI. I also from time to time use an art program called GIMP and just practice doing artwork on the computer. The program takes up a lot of space both for the program and the pictures I make. It also gets a virus from time to time but that's mainly because I only have Norton Security. Wondering if it would be better to just get an Apple computer. So I what I want to know is this. Should I ask for a new computer? If so, which one that can be found for around $500 to $700. OR Should I just get someone to work on my computer and buy new parts for it. I know that often can be cheaper to do and less of a headache to move all my files over. I will post my specs below. OS: Windows Vista Home Premium (6.0, Build 6002) System Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion System Model: FQ550AA-ABA m9426f Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.4GHz Memory: 8190MB RAM Hard Drive Space: 431 GB free of 582 GB Would really appriciate any informative input on this.
What parts should I use to build a quality gaming pc for around $750?
I want to build myself a gaming pc for around $750. I'm not a genius when it comes to computer parts but I was wondering if I could build a PC this cheap that could run games like far cry 3 and battlefield 3 at high or max settings. If not, how much more would I have to pay to play those settings? this is not including monitor, speakers, mouse and keyboard, but how much should I pay for those. I'd like to use sites like newegg and amazon but if they're out of stock for the moment it's fine, I'm planning on building it in a few months, once I earn the rest of my money. Thanks!

What is the difference between windows 7 OEM and windows retail full version?
I'm currently building a new gaming PC and this time I just want to save the time and hassle and just buy a genuine copy of windows. Unfortunately their garbage OS is overpriced and I would prefer to buy the cheapest one available. Anyways, from what I have heard OEM licenses are tied to the very first computer you install and activate it on. So does that mean if I delete my windows partition from my hard drive and reinstall windows to my machine, I have to purchase another license?
What is the cheapest and/or best website (UK) to build a custom gaming PC?

Cheap Gaming PC Build? (Tight Budget)?
I've been recently looking into buying a gaming computer. After searching for a couple of days, I could'nt find a powerful enough computer that could play the games I wanted and fit my budget. So I've fallen back on building my own pc. I have no experience with building pc's, but im sure its nothing youtube couldnt help. so my big question here is what parts should I get for the pc? I know i need a case, an operating system, motherboard, RAM, Power supply, and probably most importantly a good graphics card. However, I am on a pretty tight budget, so if all of this could be done for $400 or less, that would be great, although im not expecting it. If you guys have suggestions on what i should buy, please post the specs of the computer in the comments below, and if possible, where to buy them. Thank you! I dont need a monitor, so we can leave that out of the equation.

Is there a cheap gaming PC I can build under a tight budget?
I was wondering, if there was a cheap PC I could build that can run S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat in DX10 (MAYBE 11) for between say...$300-$400? It's my current favorite game for P.C., but I'm also using it as sort of a benchmark, if you will... Paying for everything but the case, I just wanted to get the best bang for my buck on a budget. I was thinking maybe, 3-4 gigs DDR3 RAM, two decent gaming cards (2x 512MB DDR3 128-bit sound alright?), PSU, mobo and a dual-core processor, and whatever else I may need. ATI-based system, preferably, because it's mostly cheaper. (also because I've never had an Nvidia system) Are there any recommendations, packages, or parts lists you can recommend? Any help would be much abliged, thanks!

What's the best tutorial on the web for building a cheap gaming PC?
I'd like SLI integrated really, but that doesn't really matter. Update: When I say cheap I mean 1500 and under, because I know SLI is not necessarily "cheap." In Maximum PC they gave a great tutorial on a $1500 gaming PC that lacked a sound card, modem, etc. I was just looking for something to compete with the one in said article.

I'm not sure on what cables i need to buy and another problem is that the graphics card is sold out or they've stopped selling it :((( . One more problem is that i live outside the US and i can't order from some sites like Newegg for example. Advice on what to change, what to leave, how good this build is etc...

A few years ago I had my girlfriend's brother build me a computer. A few months later I had a couple problems with it, and he wasn't very enthusiastic about helping me with it. Of course when me and my girlfriend broke up all bets were off. Anyway, I am in the market for a new computer now, as that one is now completely out of commission. Getting a computer built by someone else is way cheaper, but I don't know if I know anyone trust-worthy. Where is a good place to get a cheap, dependable PC? Are there any places in the Seattle area that build PCs and offer a warranty? I guess I should amend myself and instead of saying "cheap," I should say "cheapest." I know building it myself would be best, but I don't know the first thing about it. Is there any website that would be good for learning how to put these together?

Dual or Quadcore for a gaming PC built on the cheap.?
I want to build a Desktop around a GTX280 but i don't want to shell out for a quad core 3gHz chip. I've been doing some research and found a dual core for about $200, would i be loosing a lot of performance (frames per second) if i went with higher speed dual core instead of average quad core? The chips i'm looking at are the 45 nm intel core 2 chips. The only uses i plan for this computer is playing games. So the most CPU intenisive chore would be playing supreme commander. Thanks
