    Purchasing Desktop(Not building one.)

    Looking to purchase gaming rig and all and I have no clue where to start so I'm hoping some of you could help me if any.
    Not looking to build it piece by piece.

    Budget: 0~2k
    Type: Gaming
    HDD: Not a ton but maybe around a tb or so.
    Accessories:
    Screen: Not needed.
    Mouse: Gaming/Anything Decent(Preferably Wireless)
    Keyboard: Not needed,but can be included.
    CPU Speed: As long as it can run most games smoothly I'm fine.
    Not sure what else to add so I'll leave it there.
    If you can include links please do so.
    Will rep+thank any and all legitimate help.

    Anything better than this and I'd be happy.


    If this should be posted in the hardware section please move it for me. ty

    Tutorials are not a proper substitute for experience

    Why are you so against building a rig? You will have a faster + cheaper rig if you build it yourself... not to mention some experience.


    In any case, you can get a 1k computer for 2k (prebuilt), especially with Black Friday coming around. So be more specific on what you are looking for.

    Hmmm just ask the dealers at the electronics store and they should be able to direct you.
    Anyone see any good guides to building a pc? I have no experience but Im going for it and trying to build my own.

    There isn't really much to it. Go to a site like newegg, find compatible parts. If you aren't good at that, have someone help you with that - there are plenty of people on here who can do that. Buy the parts, and put it together.

    Most motherboards booklets give you a general idea of what to do, even some put you through the entire process. Building all computers is pretty much the same. Install motherboard, install CPU, connect cpu to motherboard. Install CPU, put in the fan. Install ram. Install graphics card. Connect hd. See if it boots correctly. Do memtest. Install OS. Enjoy (granted nothing is jacked up).

    I live in Everett. If you really are too afraid to put your shit together I can do it for you, as long as you don't hold me liable for shit not working.
