    Always build, if you don't know how then consult Google or you can ask someone to help you build a PC.
    Click the 'Thanks' button at the bottom right if I helped you in some way or if you're a good person looking to thank me for no reason

    Amd is cheaper because of the heat + i hate the average build quality. But yeah if you want a AMD machine you should stick with a ATi card aswell. works the best as far as i know. Also if you want a cheaper solution for intel cores you can buy a i5 core like the 3570/3570k its the same as a i7 3770/3770k though it doesn't have hyperthreading so you'll be only using physical cores.

    Also to shorten the expenses even more you can try to build it yourself if you know how to do it.

    1 final thing ... there is a currency issue. people here can try to find all the equipment in US webshops though the prices are allot lower than the european prices.

    Buying is always better.

    Advantages
    • You get to chose what components you want.
    • Its cheaper, and gets even cheaper as the price for the build goes up.
    • You can always upgrade it latter.
    • You get to know what goes in your computer!


    Disadvantages
    • Requires knowledge based around computer components.
    • Needs to be assembled, can be tricky for beginners.

    Building is better in my opinion, You will save money and because you made it yourself it wont come with bullshit already pre installed. That and you will be able to upgrade it much easier as opposed to buying one from the market.

    What kinda case are you looking at? Keep in mind the case itself can cost you hella lot of money, but at the same time it wont depending on what your looking for.

    Building it will give you a great advantage in components compared to buying one.

    Build for sure! If you can manage to spend another hundred dollars, you could be able to run BF3 on ultra settings!

    $800 is plenty to build your own PC.

    Not sure on the specifics so you'd have to do some research but you can get some Xeon server processors for about the cost of an i5 that have hyper-threading and alot of "enthusiasts" are using them for gaming as well.. I just don't know which processors they're talking about. Xeon ranges from $200 to $2,000.
