Build Your Own Gaming PC

Good Gaming PC Specs? Newer Build?

  1. I think you could fetch a much better price if you build the computer by yourself,

    I think all this would cost around 1/2-3/4 the cost of this. But the specs are great, but I think the i5 might be the bottleneck later on, might want to consider an i7 for this to last a lot longer. Also increasing RAM would increasing how long this build would last.

  2. Now that's more like it! Not a bad deal there and definitely better than your previous one. However, a few things:

    1. 750w is overkill unless you're planning on adding another 6950. Otherwise a good 600w PSU would do the trick.

    2. A single 4GB stick? Why would you do that? Either get a 2x2GB kit or a 2x4GB kit. Even though 8GB of RAM is a bit overkill, it's become cheap enough these days that you might as well.

    3. The hard drive may be fine, but I always recommend a Samsung Spinpoint F3 drive. It's a fast, reliable, and inexpensive 1TB drive.

    Otherwise, not too bad. If you can cut the PSU back a bit then the price should even out with the other suggestions.
