    Not sure if this is right place to post, but I need help with buying PC

    Hi, sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but not sure where else to post this. I have really no idea on how to build a computer so I was wondering if there was a nice computer out there that could handle Battlefield 3, maxed out and great FPS. FACTORY SPECS!

    I was looking at the Alienware Aurora

    Alienware Aurora High-Performance 6 Core Gaming Tower

    They have a video there that says how well it can run BF3, but was that an upgraded PC because they said something about this AMD crossfire thing.

    If there's something better than this PC and I will get a better Bang for the buck, please tell! Thanks in advance!

    Seriously? Alienware? Do you really feel like overpaying for that piece of shit? Build your own.

    Cool
    It's actually very simple building your own rig. If you can find like a one day or something course that teaches you how to build them I'd advise you to do it, that way you can get even more bang for your buck building it yourself.. With that said though, there are some websites that will pre-build the system for you.

    iBUYPOWER Gaming PC: Custom Gaming Computers and Laptops

    Gaming Computers, Gaming PC, Custom built gaming Computers

    Next Day Deliver PCs | Computer Planet

    Just to name a few. But you will always get much more bang for your buck building it yourself..

    Just search through youtube, there's a few channels out there that show you how to build it up from putting the mobo in to doing all the wiring and crap.

    Oh, and most gaming cases are usually tooless installation.. So it's literally just a case of aligning the mobo with the stand offs and removing the IO shield so it can just slide in nicely and doing up the screws for the standoffs, same with GPU, RAM HDD. Just slide it in, click it in place and you're good to go.. The only real nerve racking thing imo is putting the CPU in the mobo socket since you obviously don't want to bend the pins..

    You can build your own its very simple... just buy the hardware .. they will have the instruction for you to install it or you can ask around....By doing so can help you reduce the cost significantly compare with buying an Alienware. If you want a Customize system company i recommend you Digital Storm

    And if it is not a robbery (like alienware), the more you pay, the better you get.

    If you don't want to build it, then buy for other places. Alienware is shit, selling something for less than $1000 for $2000+.

    Don't get Alienware. It's overpriced and overhyped.

    Look at the Newegg tutorial on YouTube, I never build my own PC before, it's easy as fuck. Pretty much LEGO..

    Did it within 2 hours, and that was my first time ever.

    I got a 4000$ Alienware price PC for the price of 'Only' $1000

    if your gonna build your own make sure you ground yourself static electricity can kill your components. if you dont want to try it my first gaming rig was built by cyberpower and i still have it and it still works the prices are resonable. but there's nothing like building your own
