What system specs are good for a new desktop gaming PC? Alright, so I am considering buying/building a gaming PC - there are many great games I would like to play, such as World in Conflict, Red Alert 3 and more. What I want to know is what system specs I should get. I see many computers with 256MB of SDRAM or whatever it's called, etc, but I find it hard to see how well that performs. So for a gaming PC that will be able to run new games well, what kind of specs would I need? I was thinking of about 2.4Ghz processor, 2 or 4GB of RAM, and a video card with 512 SDRAM. Of course there are more components to a PC than this, but as far as I understand these mean the most for gaming. Any ideas? Or any specific video cards / processors that come to mind? Thanks!
Building a Gaming Pc? Hello i was just wondering what some of the options today for about $2100 in building your own gaming pc....

Is it worth building my own gaming PC or just sticking with my Xbox? Hi, Tomorrow I'm going to the store to get all the components to build my PC and it's going to cost roughly £600 (I'm 16 so it's quite a bit of money for me), I was going to be building a gaming one and it is going to be a good one, but I also have a Xbox 360 but I really only go on it to play Halo Reach and talk to friends, Do you think it'll be worth making this PC? Games always seem to be cheaper on PC (literally some games like Dead Island is £20 to pre-order on PC) So do you think I should build it? if I did what good exclusive PC games should I get? Thanks.
Good pre-built gaming pc under $2000 (Serious answers and please no build your own!)? I need a gaming PC that will last me for at least this year the main games I want to get for this PC (So you have an idea of the specs I'm aiming for) are Witcher 2 (It looks amazing) and Skyrim. I've been looking at the HP Pavillion elite http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/165752/index.asp and that looks pretty good. But are there any better ones I could get? The problem with building one myself is one I probably wouldn't be able to do it :P I'm good with electronics but not with small things like putting wires together.. and two there is practically no one in my local area who would help me build it.. None that I've found at least.
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?
Build a Budget Gaming PC? I'm hoping to build a new Gaming Computer by the end of the 2013 year. Currently, I'm either playing the Xbox 360, or playing on a crappy Intel Celeron B820. Obviously, that laptop isn't meant for gaming. I want something that can handle games like The Elder Scrolls on medium-high settings with a solid framerate. (Definitely want to play the upcoming ESO on the top settings on the new rig) I will be building my own PC to save the money (and put it towards better parts). So the first question is: is newegg.com really the place to go? It seems that in every forum I have gone to, newegg is mentioned at least 5 times. The real question here is this: what parts are the best bang for the buck for a budget of around $800? And if it's worth it to pay extra, be sure to put that in your answer. Just let me know how much of a difference an extra $50+ would make to the overall machine. So if you could, go ahead and name all the parts (cpu, gpu, motherboard, case, an on for every single thing I will need) for that price range. Also, I would appreciate if you could say how much of an upgrade one thing is to another (4GB of RAM compared to 8GB, etc) Lastly, I've heard people saying that dual-core processors wont be able to run games in the future...so how long will the parts I get last in your opinions. And of course, the true PC test..."Will it run Crysis 3?" Thanks so much everyone. Yahoo Answers is truly the best!
Can a 14 year old build their own gaming pc? Well, i've gotten more into pc gaming more then console gaming because the games are cheaper, you can use mods, more game options, graphics are better, etc. My laptop cannot run games very well so I figured i'd try to get a job and earn the money. But I know that teens my age are VERY limited in the workforce. The pc i'd like to build was at http://www.theverge.com/2011/12/19/2639968/how-to-build-gaming-pc. It seems very good, looks able to play games at their max settings even with shadows with great fps. (Which my laptop cannot do). So what I'm basically asking is that people my age could be able to get a job to build a good gaming pc like that, because i've heard that alienware is a ripoff compared of what you could get if you just build a pc yourself.
£1000 Gaming PC Build? Ugh, I'm useless at this stuff. I've been told building your own pc is a great money saver, but I don't know shit about what parts I need :/ My budget is £1000- £1050... Include the case if you can :D

Where do I purchase equipment to build my own gaming PC? And how do I know how to put it all together? So EVERYONE tells me to build one but a PC seems so complex, and I know little to nothing about tech. I really want one since my current PC is so outdated and I would like to play games really smoothly on it. I can't even play Slender on it! Anyways, I just want a PC to run things like Skyrim and all of it's mods on High-Def (or close to it) or Blade and Soul (if it comes to NA.) And even to run free PC games. Also being able to browse normally through the internet and hold music and whatnot. Just an overall good PC. If possible, I would like the price to be under $1,000. I'm not sure if I would want to purchase all of the equipment online and on different sites so a thorough explanation and list of things to buy would help a lot. I was given the impression that the best hardware for a gaming PC is purchased online. And if you read (which obviously you did not) you would see that I clearly stated that I do not know much about PCs and its equipment. I don't know what to search for, what to look at. If you don't know how to properly answer a question, I suggest getting out. I wouldn't have made a rude comment if that user didn't insult me that way. I came here in a positive mood to just ask a question and hope someone could take their time and answer it without any problems. If that user would of just answered the first time suggesting TigerDirect.com, withOUT any sly comments, nothing would lead me to talk back, however that wasn't the case. Unfortunately, he/she couldn't have been helpful and friendly enough to do so. I still thank him/her for finally suggesting something when clearly he/she could have from the beginning.
Should I buy a gaming PC or build my own? Right now, I play WoW on a laptop on low-good settings. I want to be able to play other PC games like SWTOR, Skyrim, etc. all on ultra settings. I'm not sure if I should buy something like a Doghouse System gaming desktop or if I should build my own. I was told to go newegg.com to look for parts, but I don't know if I'm getting a good deal for the part or whether it's a good piece or bad. Is there a way to find out if all the pieces I'm looking at buying will run the games I want on ultra? I'm looking for one that will last me a good number of years. Must be a desktop. I'm guessing that building my own would be cheaper and easier to replace parts. But I'm not entirely sure as I've never built my own before. Any form of help would be greatly appreciated. I'm just really tired of missing out of some games because my laptop can barely it. Already having a hard time playing WoW on it lol.
Gaming PC build? I have never owned or built a real PC before. I would like some opinions on this setup. I want to be able to play any game on the market and any game released in the foreseeable future including dayZ, total war games, star citizen, Skyrim, wow ect Is there anything that makes no sense, anything overkill or under powered? http://www.techbuyersguru.com/2000build.php Would this 1500 dollar build be a better option? http://www.techbuyersguru.com/1500build.php
Suggest me some parts for building my own gaming PC.? Ok, i decided I'm gonna try to build my first computer. I've never done this before. Id like a good gaming rig. I would like it to be a good powerful system that i can run Crysis on high and not have to worry about upgrading it for a few years. Hopefully under $1000 would be good too. If I HAVE to go over 1k a lil i guess i could live with that. But from what i've read the prices for built PC's are fairly low. Now I have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers. I will probably upgrade those after I get the computer, so no worries there. But as for everything else, lay it on me. Case, video card, etc. P.S. I should get Vista right? P.S.S Pray for me!!!
Building a Gaming PC? So I need a gaming PC that can run Arma 3 on Max.My Budget is $800-$1200.
Should i build a gaming PC? I have no experience in the field of building anything, yet alone a computer. The process seems daunting and challenging. I've heard building your own PC is not only cheaper but you can create a computer that suits you and only you. My main concern is i'll buy something that doesn't fit or work with the rest of my components and then i'll waste a whole lot of money. What should i do? should i step up and attempt to build one? or should i just buy a pre built gaming machine off ebay?
Should I buy or build my own gaming pc? I saw a customizable pc for sell and it have the exact same spec as the one that I want to build. There will only be a $60 price difference if I build it myself. I have no experience building a pc. So what should I do?
Building a gaming pc? can someone who has built a gaming pc that can play battelfiled 3 and more give me links to all things they bought for it. thanks for help
How to convince my parents to let me build my own gaming PC? Wow. Alright. I need a new gaming PC, and the only ones that meet my specs sell for about 7000$ (Alienware). I discovered the joy of building my own PC soon after! I asked and with some help from the Steam Powered User Forums I found every part I need to build my own ultra gaming rig! But here's the problem. When I took it up with my mom ( she has the credit card :[ ) she didn't believe it. I've researched (painstakingly) for many hours, and every site tells me the same thing. Building a computer is not rocket science! She seems to believe I will crash and burn and waste 1200$ worth of equipment! She says unless I find a computer-building class (o.o) or some sort of support line she's not getting the goods. Help me convince her that it's easy, please?
Custom built gaming pc? Heyy, i need a gaming pc for under $1000. I would like to build it from scratch.

A guide or a list would be great thanks!
Building Your Own PC? I've wanted to build my own PC for a long time. Is there a place to go to get tech help on compatibility, troubleshooting, etc., if I (when I) run into trouble. It's gotta be more than simply buying the components and slapping together. I looked at Tech Depot & you can 'build your own' with their preconfigured systems. Is that a better way to go? wondering...
AmI better off building my own gaming PC or buying one? I want a good quality gaming PC that can handle mods and bigger games like Skyrim. Is it it smarter/cheaper to build my own? Or should I buy one? And where do I quality parts at a decent price?
I want to build my own gaming PC, but am a total noob hardware-wise.? So, I want a custom built PC, preferably one that I can use for both gaming and my studies. But I literally have no idea of what the best components are, because I usually just accept desktops as they come. Anyone care to suggest the most awesome: hard drive - CD-ROM Drive - Processor - Processor Cooling Fan - Motherboard - Memory Modules - Power Supply - (I was thinking Colors-IT 650w Titan 12CM Neon Power Supply, 'cause yes, I want to be lame and have a perspex case with LEDs and neons all through it....) Video Card/ Optical drives/ Graphics card - (I was thinking Inno3D nVIDIA GeForce GTX260 (192) Graphics Card - 896MB GDDR3 - PCI-E - 448-Bit - Dual DVI - VISTA READY - 576MHz GPU - 2000MHz Memory clock ¿ HDCP) - any arguments for or against? and probably CPU cooling compounds - and you know, if I've missed any vital components..FOR GOD'S SAKE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I thank ye of the nerdy persuasion for enlightening me =P ... if you cbf, that is. As for a budget, I intend to have this as a project that will take a fairly long time. I'm perfectly fine buying it component by component.. btw, I'm from Australia.. so I'm definitely not going to be doing anything in pounds XD Let's say, for the moment, though, that I have neither excessive funds, nor am I beggarly on the street... so mid-range prices are really where I want to be at. I don't have specifics just now, because it's something I've recently decided to do.

Building a Gaming PC; Specs? HI :D I'm currently in need of a new pc, and my dad offered helping me build one. Naturally, I thought of a gaming pc. However, I don't know a damn thing on the subject, so I'm asking for help on specs. I need a pc that can run modern games, not only cheap facebook games, but games up to skyrim and stuff. My goal would be it running Doom 3 BFG Edition smoothly. Also, it would be nice if it could also run programs like After Effects with no problems. I don't need a DVD burner so rule that out. If you have some idea of what specs I could use, I'd love to hear them. However, I need the budget to stay under $500, $600 tops. Thanks to everyone in advance :D

How can I learn to build a gaming rig? I always hear and read about how it's better (and cheaper) to build your own gaming pc instead of buying a custom one from a manufacturer like Alienware. But since I know very little about building PC's, I wonder if there's a way to learn without having to pay for a class. Does anyone have any suggestions?
What is a good gaming desktop pc for runescape and minecraft? I am looking for a good gaming pc that is within my price range of 500-700$. I am not looking at all at building my own gaming pc and that is not an option for me. I need a good cool looking gaming pc that won't break down in anyway. Also I do not want any cyberpower or ibuypower computers because I have heard bad stories about them. I am not looking for a laptop I am looking for a desktop. I want a pc that can run on high qualities at a very high fps.

On a Budget: Build My Own Gaming PC or Buy One? I'm looking to spend $800ish on the tower(Graphics Card, Ram, Mobo, PSU, and CPU). I already have a ATX mid tower case, SATA Hard Drive, Monitor, keyboard/mouse, and a 20x DVD Burner picked out. I been looking around and I'm not sure if I should build the pc myself or just buy a gaming pc. With your answer I would like detailed reasons and links. For example if you think I'd be better off buying a gaming pc then I'd like links to a few you would recommend in that price range. If you think I'll get more bang for my buck building it myself then I'd like you to name the specific parts to buy, links would be helpful. I want a motherboard that is crossfire or sli capable depending on which gpu is recommended, and upgradeable. Only a detailed answer will be chosen, and I appreciate your help. Here's a couple sites I was looking at built pc's www.cyberpowerpc.com/ www.ibuypower.com/ www.maingear.com/ Site's I was looking for parts to build my own www.newegg.com/ www.tigerdirect.com/

I want to build a gaming pc, and I need a monitor, case, power supply, and all that jazz.

I need your help about building a gaming pc? i am planning to build my own gaming pc, and i choose to get this stuff from newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.722612&cm_sp=DIY_PC_Combos-_-722612-_-Combo I only need to get video card to get started. What do you think about the best video card? Cause i dont know what im gonna get. My gaming pc is just a Mid range, not high and not low range. So any suggestion?

How difficult is it to build your own gaming computer? Hey guys, I want to build my own gaming computer, which will run the latest games on ultra settings with no lag. I have an 'okay' knowledge of computers but I'm no expert with them. My budget is $1500 to $2000. The reason I'm thinking about this is because I do want to learn more than what I know now, but I suppose it's also a challenge (for me anyway). I do plan to take gaming somewhat seriously after I finish highschool (not as a career!) so a new machine would be great. Anyway, has anyone here built their own pc from scratch before? If yes, how long did it take you to assemble the parts and get it going? The thing I'm worried about is the compatibility of each component. Thanks :D

I want to Build my Own PC and have several Questions with a 1000-2000 Budget!? Lately, I have been wanting to build my own gaming pc that will last 2-4 years. I want to have the Nvidia 6 Series or better for 3D. Not sure whether I should go for AMD or Intel. Questions: 1. Is 3D on graphics cards good with a 3D monitor? (does it hurt your eyes or is it worth the extrra money) 2. Is the Nvidia 6 Series a great line of cards or are there better ones? (Please tell me the exact brand and model number!) 3. AMD or Intel? (using it for gaming, video rendering, and maybe photoshop.) I would really appreciate it if you could answer below. If so can you give a full list of parts to choose. Thank You!

Planning to build a gaming PC around $600 or less? Hey everyone, I have decided to build my own gaming rig, I have THOUGHT about it for quite a long time.. while in the meantime I ended up buying a Ps3 + a Gaming headset. But I've made my mind about building a PC for gaming generally. I, myself is an avid gamer. For one I'm still in school.. so I know when to schedule myself to studying or gaming. I'm planning on building myself a gaming PC. I have experiences with parts, like I know how it goes and how it would pair up. But I need help in picking parts. Basically I'm looking for a semi-budget spec setup. $600 would be my limit, I know spending only 600 wouldn't get me EXCELLENT gaming experience, but I'm looking for someone who can get the best SPEC setup with 600, something that will get me the MAX/High performance I will be looking forward to. Please list your suggestions below, be free with your choices, just make it within 600$, AMD or Intel. This is excluding the monitor, keyboard and mice. I was looking for a high performance graphic card/motherboard while trying to find parts cheaper? Generally.. spending literally half of 600 on graphics/motherboard.. but again, feel free to list your suggestions as long as its under 600. List the parts (with LINK, preferably NEWEGG) price, and total. PLEASE help, THANK YOU! If you can get anything around 400~500 it would be GREAT too! ANYTHING LOWER THAN 600! :) I got my father to help pay for the graphics card. hehe! so I'm basically paying for everything else^^

Are The Build-A-Gaming-PC Online Stores Good? I've been visiting some websites and people are saying that build your own PC's are the way to go nowadays for better hardware and cheaper prices. But since I am not the best at building an actual computer, I was looking at the sites like iBuyPower, and such where they will build it for you themselves, but with your selections of hardware. Are these deals worth it? Or is there any tutorial on how to put a PC together? haha. Thanks
How to build a Powerful Gaming PC? (what to look for?)? I am fed up with spending loads of money on laptops and computers which have apparently high rating for performance in games and they let me down with poor fps, lagging and overheating problems.. SO i want to build my own powerful gaming PC which will handle ANY PC game out to this date. i look at all components such as CPU, motherboards etc and there is a lot of new numbers and letters which don't mean much to me. i am just used to the standard CPU speeds, graphic card mb and usual info you can see by looking up system info. What specs do i look for in each component? can i just buy any random peices i like and put them together or do i need to find details on each for compatibility? (i have looked up new decent processors and figure Intel i7 processor is best and know this requires an x58 motherboard so thats what i'm after) do i just pick the fastest rpm speeds and biggest cache memory there is to get the best? what is cache memory for? please feed me your intellectual knowledge about ALL computer parts! what beats what! & what to do and what not to do when it comes to building a powerful PC.

Trying to keep it around or under $600 and i will MOSTLY be using it to play WoW, but i will be playing other games on it eventually as well.
Would these parts make for a good budget gaming pc build? Also, are they compatible? So I'm building my first pc ( and owning my first too) ever. My friend is going to help me build it, because he knows his way around that kind of thing. First off, I asked earlier on answers if I could build one for around $500, people told me I'd have to spend at least $2000? So, I compiled off of newegg these parts. My friend told me they would make for a very capable gaming pc, but I want a second, third, or fourth opinion. Also, tell me if I'm missing anything. Obviously this is just a tower build. Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129098 CPU/Processor - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103940 Graphics Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130565 Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131654 Power Supply - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371004 4GB Ram - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148418 Hard Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533 CD Burner/Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204 All of this would cost around a cool $577 not including shipping and handling (not exactly $2000 is it?). Now as far as I know this set-up is very decent. Questions: Are all the parts compatible? Would they make for a decent gaming pc? Am I missing anything? Also, I believe the motherboard comes with an audio card, correct? Well, thanks guys, and I look forward to reading all your answers. By the way, I'm not a super hardcore pc gamer that needs the best of the best, I just want a budget gaming pc that can run steam games like left 4 dead 2, maybe some COD games, stuff like that.
What Computer Components/Parts should I get to build an extreme gaming pc with a budget of $1,000-$1,500? I want to build my own pc. However Im not sure on what all components to get. Like the motherboard the case etc. I do know what graphics card I was going to get but im open to suggestions. Please list the parts and price if you know it. You can email me the list too if you want. I was also wondering about overclocking a quad core processor. Is it worth it or just waisting money buying one? Thank you for your help.
Where do I get a good gaming pc from? I'm looking to get a gaming PC. I have $600 or less to spend. I've been researching the web trying to figure out where to buy a gaming PC, and what to get. I've seen a lot of people say it's cheaper to build your own PC, so I looked into sites like www.newegg.com. To be honest, I'm completely confused there. I looked at their pre-built gaming PC's like the one at this link - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883229285. Is this a good gaming PC? I just mainly want a PC that can play World of Warcraft on the highest settings without a problem and without all the lag. I tried going through the parts lists to build my own, but I don't know enough about computers to know what I'm looking at. I have no clue which CPU and Motherboard are the best yet low enough price for what I want. Or which video/graphics card will be the best for me. I have no idea what all the letters and numbers in the descriptions mean for all the parts. I tried doing a google search to learn more about what each does and how to pick the right ones, but it's still a lot for me. I think I at least have the list of things I need down, just not the specifics. Computer case (I'm guessing I could go with any case around $60-100 and it would work), Power Supply (I know I should get one that's 80 Plus Certified, but that's about it. No clue what minimum watts should be), CPU (I like AMD better than Intel, and have heard and seen through research that gamers prefer the same, but I have no clue which one I need), Motherboard (again, completely lost here. I remember reading that I should try to get one with a PCI slot, but no clue as to which has the plugs or ports that I need to match the CPU, Memory, and Video Card), Video Card ( I have no clue what the numbers mean behind them.. which part is the important part to know I can run WoW), HDD (I'm guessing one with 1TB, not sure if anything else is important for a gaming pc or not), Optical Drive (ok, this one is pretty simple and I can't really go wrong since even the decent drives are only $20), and last, Operating System (easy enough, windows 7). So, can any computer savvy people please help me figure out what to get? Is the pre-built one I linked good for what I want, and is it upgradeable? Should I get the one I linked, but swap certain item out? Is newegg the best place to get gaming pcs or computer parts? After searching online, I've come across so many websites. Newegg, TigerDirect, CyberpowerPC, Digital Storm, IBuyPower, Falcon-Northwest, and who knows all the others I haven't seen. I've spent hours and hours trying to research to make sure I'm getting the best yet financially friendly gaming pc, and all it's done so far is cause me headaches. I would love some help here. Maybe a list of item numbers for everything I need to build the gaming pc,or even a link to a shopping cart that has all the parts I need, or a link to where I can get a good gaming comp already built. Between Youtube and a PC Gamers magazine I bought that show steps on building a pc, I think I can do it. I just need the right parts. If that's the best way to go. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you. Alienware are too expensive. The lowest model they have is the mini, and it starts at $700. Dell has no refurbished Alienwares except for a few really high end ones that are almost $2000 or higher. I can't get a computer from someone on Ebay or Amazon. I don't trust that I'll get one that will actually work. And there's no warranty that way. You're trusting one person. If anyone looks at the computer I linked above, there are people that say a good gaming computer can be made for same price or less. I just need to know what parts to buy. There's another website I found that I'm not sure of. www.computerlx.com. Please.. there's got to be a computer savvy person out there that knows how to build computers and knows exactly what I need. I just need someone to take a little time to help me.
Is it hard Building a Gaming Pc? I'm planning on making my own pc becuase I want to have a good gaming computer without having to buy those alienwares. I know my ins n outs with a pc. The graphics card, the. Motherboard, etc. But I want to build a full pc that's made for gaming with my hands. Is there anything I should know? If you built a pc for your 1st time how did I feel? Thnx for the answers :)
Help building my own gaming/video editing PC? Hi everyone! I am currently wanting to build my first gaming and video editing PC. I really enjoy editing/rendering videos in Sony Vegas 10.0 but it's very hard running off 2gb of ram on my very out-dated computer as of now. I also cannot even play most recent games. So here's where I need your help. I've been shopping around on Tigerdirect.com and not sure which computer parts I should get and what's compatable with certain things. It's a bit daunting at first reading all of these items on the list. Couldmyou be of any assistance and link me to some (if not all) of the parts I need to make an awesome gaming/video editing computer? 1000 bucks is as high as I can go by the way! Thanks! Forgot to mention that I would also like to build it because I think that's something I would be interested in learning and it sounds fun!

Building your own pc: help!? I'm reading up on how to build your own pc, i'm finally able to buy my own and i want to make sure that i get the best performance i possibly i can with what im paying for. So, here's a few things id like to find out: 1. memory. how do you know the limit on how much ram you can stick in your system? ive read that upwards of 2gigs of ram cant be used on any system. so how can i use, say, 4 gigs? after all, more memory=better performance, right? 2. video cards. would it be better to just settle for 1 card or multiple gpu's? i still cant get a handle on sli and crossfire and im thinking of considering multiple gpu's since i plan on gaming on my pc for a long time and i want to know that i can keep up with the escalating requirements for games 3. processors. any site you can recommend where a beginner can read up on the various pros and cons of the different processors amd and intel have? 4. Any useful tips you guys can share when it comes to pc and pc gaming hardwares in general Thank you so much.. your insights would be greatly appreciated :)
which sims game is the one where you build your own houses then put people in them on pc? which sims game is the one where you build your own houses then put people in them, i cant work out which sims it was, (on pc).
Need specific parts advice to build a new gaming PC? So I want to build a gaming pc, but nothing too fancy. Basically I am looking to spend around $1,000, but I could go a little over if it is totally worth it. I am debating either building my own, having one built, or just buying whatever I can get (as I hear building your own isn't really that much cheaper these days). So basically if you could list a build for a decent gaming machine within these parameters that would be great! (Oh yeah, it helps if you know that the parts will actually work together, and if anyone has any info on that, that would be great... I haven't kept up with any of it for about 6 years... and I am sure while things might plug in and tech. work, there might be crashing involved.)
Is it easier for a gamer to build his own high-end computer, or to get one from a manufacturer like Alienware? Does it cost less to build it yourself or to get it from a manufacturer? I know just buying one is easier, but I I want to build a really high-end Computer with a 1.5TB HD, 2GB of memory, an ATI Radeon X1950XTX 512mb DDR4 PCI-E Crossfire setup, a ATI All-In-Wonder with TV In/out, HD Audio, Intel Core DUO (or Whatever is Intel's fastest Double CPU setup) Running on Windows Vista Ultimate (I own an RC1 Copy). I could buy the motherboard, tower, and all the other stuff, but will it cost more? It'll be hard work building, but will it be worth it? I won't have any Tech support, so If anything goes haywire, I'll be standing alone. Or will it cost more with buying the whole setup. If not my extreme-gamer setup, Is it better to build your own PC or to buy one from the store?
Would this be a good gaming pc build for high graphics and 30+ fps? I'm looking to get a new pc and from what I understand, building your own can get you a much better product for less money than pre-built ones. I'd prefer a cheaper build since this is roughly $900, but I wouldn't know which component to downgrade and still keep a good performance. Any help or opinions would be much appreciated.

Very good Gaming PC? Please read!? I'm looking for a gaming PC because my computer needs to go. When I download free games/purchased games/torrented games on my PC it lags, and runs very poorly. I've already tried everything possible to make my games run faster and smoother but nothing works! Then my friend recommended me to buy or build my own Gaming PC. He said they were made especially for games and they run excellent. But the only problem with that for me is money. I looked at AlienWare gaming PC's and they are VERY expensive but worth the money. I am currently saving my money for a video game for my xbox 360. My friend said building your own Gaming PC is cheaper but takes alot of work. What I am looking for in a Gaming PC is fast, high memory, runs good on games, cheap, and well-built. Please help!!! What should I do??
Building your own PC? so im looking at this computer to buy http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0375233 I play a few games on the PC, but i mostly stick to xbox for gaming....But ive heard rumors that you can build your own computer for a lot cheaper...I mean maybe if your looking at a $1000 dollar computer u can build it for $700....But whenever i map building my own computer equivalent to the Hp Pavillion i go over like $200 dollars
New to PC Gaming. Help on System requirements n' Stuff? There are two games that I'm looking forward this year that I think will run better on PC: Skyrim and The Witcher 2 My PC obviously doesn't fit the requirements to both of these games. It's an old PC that my dad gave me as a gift when I moved out so I won't bother listing the specs. I'm thinking that I should buy a brand new PC. A PC that doesn't have to be really expensive but can at least run games such as Witcher 2 or Skyrim. Does Best Buy sell gaming PCs at a reasonable price? Is it better to build your own gaming PC rather than buying one?
Should I Build My Own PC or Get One Pre-Built? Ok, so here's the thing. My income tax is just around the corner and I would love to get a Gaming PC. Here's the thing, should I build it which I've heard around the net is very easy as long as you follow the directions(are there directions given with the pieces purchased?) or should I get one that's already been made. Here's another thing, are gaming laptops any good or are desktops the appropriate choice as far as gaming PC's go? Are they just as customizable as a desktop? I'm willing to drop about $800 to $1,000 on it. I've heard great things about MAC computers, though, I haven't heard anything about them being user-upgradeable. I fear that if I get one of those, I'll have to buy a newer version MAC just to keep up with the enhanced graphics sometime in the future. Lastly, depending on your answer, can you provide me with a website that would be best for me to visit to get said things.

Are there any compatibility issues when trying to custom build your own PC? I want to set up a customized PC so that I can play games like The Sims 3 and Left 4 Dead 2. I plan to buy these specs: - Intel Core i3 530 2.93Ghz 4MB LGA 1156 - 4Gb PC6400 DDR2 800 - Samsung 1TB 7200rpm SATA 32MB cache - I can't decide yet on the graphics card (Sparkle 9800GTX 512MB DDR3 256bit) or (Sparkle GTS250 1024MB DDR3 256bit HDMI) - MSI G31TM-P31 DDR2/A/V/L - Samsung DVDRW SH-223L 22X SATA Lightscribe - Casing (Anything low-priced)* - Logitech mouse and keyboard - HP 17in LCD monitor - Realtek LAN Card I sometimes don't listen to technician/sales rep from computer shops coz' they often suggest overpriced specs and I have a tight budget. I need to know if buying these hardware individually and setting it up is good for gaming. Any help is appreciated To geek: If i get an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5Ghz 4MB L2 1333Mhz will everything else work? What about the graphics card, which one is better?
Is this a good gaming PC build? I don't have that much to spend, but I would like to play some high end games like Call of Duty, Crysis etc. Here is the build: Motherboard - ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO USB3 Motherboard CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Quad Core Processor RAM - Corsair XMS3 4GB DDR3 RAM Video Card - EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 1TB DVD Burner - ASUS DRW-24B1ST DVD Burner Case - Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Mid Tower Case Power Supply - Cooler Master GX Series 650Wicon Please comment on whether this build is good enough. And, if you are kind enough, please recommend your own build as long as it costs between £500 and £600 because that is how much I have to spend. Thanks :)
what do i need to know to make a gaming pc? Hey, im planning on making my own gaming desktop pc, not amazing spec's just medium spspec'sI'll be using it to play games such as World of Warcraft. I would like too know what i need to know about to make the pc, i don't really know anything about building my own yet, but i have some of these parts i would use in mind and all are compatable. Thanks in advance for your answers. =)
I want to build a Gaming PC with a £500 budget? I really want to migrate from X360 onto a PC platform but at the moment only have £500 max to spend on parts. Also i hardly have any knowledge on the components needed to make one other than the fact i know an i5 processor is just as good as a i7 processor for gaming and not sure if AMD is the way to go. I'm also not sure but the games i want the PC to hopefully run would Tf2, Battlefield and Guild wars 2 (when it comes out) :3. Another thing I have a 22" monitor if it helps to know what graphics card i need, even though some websites let you customize your own PC i feel they are charging too much and that i could probably make one for cheaper any thoughts and help would be Much appreciated. <3
How difficult is it to build your own gaming computer? Hey guys, I want to build my own gaming computer, which will run the latest games on ultra settings with no lag. I have an 'okay' knowledge of computers but I'm no expert with them. My budget is $1500 to $2000. The reason I'm thinking about this is because I do want to learn more than what I know now, but I suppose it's also a challenge (for me anyway). I do plan to take gaming somewhat seriously after I finish highschool (not as a career!) so a new machine would be great. (I'm tired of running Starcraft on my laptop at 15fps :<) Anyway, has anyone here built their own pc from scratch before? If yes, how long did it take you to assemble the parts and get it going? Thanks :D
Where to build your own pc online free? Does anybody know where there is a place on the net where you can custom build your own pc that walks you through and lets you choose the best parts for your computer needs, like if your a high end gamer or surf the web a lot etc and it gives you either a total or an estimate of how much the pc is going to cost you? Thank you.
How much will it cost for this gaming PC? Who makes it? Should I build it myself? What I really want... Microsoft FSX with all of the settings on 100%. If you are familiar with FSX, you will know that many things aren't maxed on ultra-high setting. I want it all. I want everything running at 100%, with anti-aliasing, AF, 40+fps, everything, flawlessly at 1920x1200. Any good sites for building your own gaming computer? What's the best deal for $2,000 or less? I would want something that could easily be upgraded as the standards change. Thanks.
Might consider building a gaming PC. A couple questions.? I have fairly limited knowledge of the hardware aspects of PC's. The only thing I have successfully accomplished was installing a video card, a sound card, and extra ram. Other than that I have no experience. I have had this gaming rig for around 3-4 years and it's an AGP system. It's beginning to struggle a lot on the new games even on the lowest settings. I have been looking at some pre-built computers on newegg, but I am thinking if I buy the parts and build it myself I can save some money. What is the worst thing that can possibly happen if I buy 900 dollars worth of parts. Blow out the entire system, fry the motherboard? I figure I can save money, but being a college student I don't want to waste my money by blowing out half of the parts in the computer. What I do know: Motherboard and processor sockets have to match. -Motherboard and video card need to both be pci express. -Ram needs to be the proper socket as well to fit into the Mobo. -Will need a sufficient power supply. I plan using a copy of windows xp home that I already own. I don't need anything besides the actual computer. No monitor or anything. ***So my questions are... How easy is it to mess this up? Is it hard to build a computer? Is it worth buying a pre-built computer from newegg.com? Can I still run a good PC off of Windows XP? How long on average would you say it takes to build a gaming rig? Ever since the time I was 18 and blew out my motherboard and ram from attempting to install a processor, I am very reluctant to build my own PC from scratch. Thank you for your time.
Custom Building A Gaming PC?

how hard is it to build a powerful gaming PC? i am 14 and i just got my first laptop (13" MacBook Pro 2.4Ghz) i decided i really liked computer gaming and, as most people know, Mac's aren't ANY good for gaming. i was reading up on Gaming PC's (has to be a desktop), and i heard you can get a better (and cheaper) machine if you build your own, rather than buy an Alienware or something. i am very good with building and taking apart stuff, and i think im up to the challenge. my friend's dad is also a custom gaming PC builder so i could also go to him if i needed any help. i'd like it to be able to play Crysis on high settings Spec's i'd like Processor: Intel i5 Storage: 500GB RAM: 4GB...8GB if possible Graphics: ati radeon hd 5970 Cooling system: Fan based Body: Aluminum Drive's: DVD or Bluray (doesnt matter that much to me) Ports: 2 USB, 1 SD, 1 Audio In/Out, Ethernet, charging port can you please give me a rough idea of how much this would cost, and how hard it would be? Thanks =) oh, and one more question, would i be able to run Mac OS X on this? or would it affect the performance? Thanks
Gaming Computer Build. Good/Bad? I'm putting together my own gaming PC buying parts off Newegg. This is my first time building a PC so I'm a bit overwhelmed when it comes to picking out my parts. I've asked a few friends and posted on a forum or two to get suggestions but I'm the kind of person that likes to have a lot of opinions before I make a decision like this. Considering I'll be spending 1200-1300 dollars on it I want to make sure I get it right. Here is a list of the parts I'm looking at along with Newegg links. I would greatly appreciate it if the PC Guru's of Yahoo Answers could take a look and tell me their honest opinion. The grand total of these parts comes out to $1,209.89 which is almost exactly what I want to spend. If you think I made a bad choice on something feel free to give me your input and tell me what you'd do instead I'm all ears open to suggestions. I've been a hardcore gamer since I was 9 years old but I've never had a PC that could QUITE handle the games I wanted to play on max settings. I've always had to deal with lag. Not enough so the games are unplayable but just enough to be annoying. My goal with this build is to finally have a PC that will tear up any game I throw at it. I want to be able to run Crysis full settings and I want my PC to laugh at me and say "Is that all you can do?". I was told this kind of PC was within my budget and I hope that was correct because thats what I really want. Will this PC do what I want? Or am I asking too much for my price range? If so how much more do I need to spend? Thank you very much for your time reading through my wall of text :) Heres the parts: Cooler Master RC-690 Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119137 Antec 750W Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005 Asus ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131405 Intel i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115214 ATI XFX HD5870 1GB GPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150443 G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) Memory http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104141 Western Digital 1TB HD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136284
How do you build your own laptop? I have built a couple PC's, but now I want a laptop. I never had any problems figuring a desktop out. But, I know a laptop is more difficult cause you have tapes and monitor hookups, so is there a site where that has a guideline on how to build one? I want to build a medium high gaming laptop. So, I need instructions on what I need.
Building my first gaming pc what should I do first? So I've decided to go ahead and build my first gaming pc. I've been wanting to for a while but I'm not entirely computer savvy. I've read a lot of stuff on building your own pc but still leary on if I'm going about this the right way. I've got a used tower for 30 bucks and now looking at processors and motherboards. I THINK I've found some decent ones but I'm not entirely sure if they would fit together. Any tips for a newbie? My budget is between $800-1000. I don't really have a pc gaming preference...um horror survival more than likely. Do like to play the mmrpgs every now and again too. I havent seen the case yet so not entirely sure what airflow would be like, Hopefully decent.

help on building my own computer? im a noob at this and i hear its a lot cheaper to build your own gaming pc then buying a prebuilt one can someone tell me everything i need or show me an online guide that will tell me exactly how to do it?
Building my own computer? I might have asked this question couple hours ago, but i decided to try asking on this category. So i wanted to build a computer and i bought this book "building your own PC for dummies" and it told me much about how to build a computer. Are there anything else i need to know about PC before building my own computer? im trying to build a gaming PC.
I need an unbiased answer to whats a good gaming PC for my needs? I don't know computer speak so the 'build my own PC' thing is more than confusing. Lets say I have a budget of 4 or 5k which includes a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I want a gaming PC that I can play sims 3 and eve online on and not have a problem. I want it to run smoothly (graphics wise), and not break down easily. I don't care about the built in speakers quality I just want it to play music beautifully when I plug in my headphones. PLEASE don't tell me to get a Mac, because Macs are not good for gaming and the old games I like to play are not compatible with a Mac. Thank you so much in advance for your answers. ~Ether D.
How good of gaming PC is this? Hi, I'm planning to build my own PC and I'm on a budget. I chose these parts for the price and specs. I really want to get your opinion on how well this can preform on games, I'm not talking maxed-out Crysis settings or anything like that, but more on how well it could do with a game like Cyrsis. I also have a question about the OS and to ask that can I and the drivers get by with Windows Seven 64-Bit Beta before October when the official version comes out or should I buy Vista and upgrade to Seven when it does come out. Here are the links to all my parts except for the case.

Buying a gaming pc from Cyberpowerpc.com? I need a new computer, ive been searching around and i figured i might buy from Cyberpowerpc.com. I started building my pc but then it hit me...Can i trust this website? So i started searching around the web and found a lot of good stuff on them, but as i feared i did come across a few saying stuff like ''Their power supplies are bad'' and ''Their customer service is bad'' and i found some articles saying they use refurbished hardware. I'm no computer wiz but i'm pretty sure that using refurbished hardware is a bad thing =s. So what i'm asking is has anyone boughten a pc from this website before and if so how did things work out? p.s. Ive read that building your own pc is cheaper and everything so this would be my alternative if i cant trust cyberpowerpc.com but I have no idea on how to start, ive tried looking up guided but im just stupid i guess lol. Anyone recommend any guided they have used? or the places they bought their parts from?
How will I play PC games (Star Wars: The Old Republic) in college? I'm looking forward to Star Wars: The Old Republic with jittery-child glee. My dilemma is that by the time TOR is released, I'll be attending college somewhere. My parents will buy me a laptop, but I'm not sure they'd be willing to put up the cash for an Alienware or other expensive gaming laptop, and I don't blame them. However, I'm not sure Star Wars: The Old Republic will run very well on your average Dell or HP laptop. I could start building my own gaming PC, but that is expensive and I don't think my parents would go for that. What should I do in order to play SW:TOR in college?
How to build your own house on your own plot of land for the sims 3 "PS3" version not PC version?

However, I find myself unable to make or use plots of land. I can't seem to find the plots of land made for you by the developer or to make for my own self. I was able to do it on the PC version. However, I don't know how to do it on the PS3 version. Someone please help me. I'm slowly disliking the vague instructions given in this game :(

Hypothetically speaking, if you could build your own dream house in heaven, what would it be? Last night, being bored, I wrote details of my own dream house: Contemporary. Spacious. Natural light everywhere. Overlooking a sea from the cliff. The beach end of the house faces west. Secluded. The house is for one occupant, two-three maximum. Private beach below. Wooden stairs lead down from the cliff to the boardwalk that connects to the jetty, where my yacht moors. Boat shack containing canoes and kayaks. Sea glass in abundance. Three story, with greenhouse and observatory on the roof. Master bedroom will be in a indoor atrium, which is from the second floor to the third floor. Inclosed by floor to ceiling glass window that commands the view of the beach. Third floor: Library, with the staircase leading to the roof. It has rare collections of art books, novels, art, science and National Geographic magazines, and a section devoted to comic books, mangas and animes. Second floor: bedroom, art studio, mini bar, private gallery. The bedroom and the art studio connects openly, with glass ceiling above. Contemporary wooden staircase leads from art studio to the balcony of the third floor library. Lavatory next to bathroom, shares the view of the beach. Toilet bowl should be facing the view, so while I'm defecating I'll have something beautiful to look at (like sunset, the blue horizon or stars at night). First floor: Bathroom, living room, billiard room, game room, PC room, kitchen, dining area, guest bedroom. The garage connects to dining area. The front door and the garage door leads into the walled courtyard, with heavily secured parameter: security camera, guard station, sensory detecter, and iron gate. The courtyard contains a rock garden, and a zen-like fountain. Gravel car road leads from the garage through the iron gate. Ground area: Sauna, connected to the house. Biking and hiking trail that leads into wildlife area. Marsh not far, with a boat shack that contains kayaks. The platform juts out from the base of the second floor, over the cliff. The library on the third floor overlooks it through the glass. The master bedroom area is behind the platform, separated by the glass sliding doors. The platform is long and wide enough to have a outdoor pool, an equipment shack (which is against the house), and a fire pit.
