Building a gaming PC? Don't know what Parts to buy for the price? Look here.
Are you interested in building your own computer but you don't know what parts to buy?
It's no big deal, everyone has this problem. I've created a few COMPATIBLE computers with parts that go together and suit everyone's budget needs.
The Cheap Gamer
A system designed to fulfill all your gaming needs at resolutions below 1680x1050.
The CPU is the non K edition and Comes with a stock cooler only. It's all that's needed if you are not overclocking.
A system designed for gamers that want to max out all their games and turn all the eye candy up while still maintaining 60fps. Some slight overclock-ability with an aftermarket CPU cooler. An introduction to SSD's with a well performing 120gb drive as well as 16GB of RAM.
So if you have a 27" 1920x1200 monitor then you're going to need some horsepower to get everything at 60fps. This system build should do the trick. However if you're running at 1080p then it's just plain overkill! Provides a higher performance SSD and a better CPU Cooler for great overclocking.
