    Gaming PC

    Going to be getting myself my own computer, and I'm not that great on choosing what is good for a Gaming PC. I have a budget of $1200 and this is only for the computer itself, not including keyboard, mouse and etc. Any suggestions?

    Doubtful
    i5 3570k
    Some generic z77 board like asrock extreme4 z77
    8GB of RAM
    Nvidia GTX 670
    Samsung 840 128GB SSD
    1~2TB Drive
    Probably a Corsair H60 Watercooler
    Case is your choice, but it's preferred to have a full tower one.
    And CD drive is just any 20 dollar one, it will do.

    You dont need 16gb of ram plus you dont need an i7 either.

    Fast 8gb ram > 16gb random rab
    High clock 4 cores > 8 random clock 8 cores (fake)
    Light travels faster than sound. That's why most people seem bright until you hear them speak.

    Been looking at the parts above, and been looking at a few gaming computers. One I found in particular seems good but I'm not sure.



    The price is about $949.78, but I'm not sure if it's good compared to others.

    If it's worth the extra $200 then I guess.

    old system but cheap
