$2000 Custom build or Cyberpower or Lenovo

Hi, thanks to anyone who is reading this.

I currently have a four year old HP prebuilt computer and its starting to not be able to play any games even on the lowest graphic settings. (It was a gift) I'm currently looking for a decent gaming/college work computer that will last a couple years. I am leaning towards buying Cyberpower because it's easier than building it and I don't really know what to do with matching parts and trying to make everything work well together. Lenovo was another option because I have 15% off till Wednesday and I bought my laptop from them and had no problems. HP is another option since this computer worked fine for so long but I didn't really see anything special while browsing. I am up for building my own but I would basically need all the parts laid out for me and any tips since the most computer work I've done is installing a graphics card, ram and routine cleaning. Sorry for the long post and thanks.

Current Computer Specs. HP-Pavilion p6230y
AMD PHENOM II x4 810 Processor (4 CPU) ~ 2.6 GHz
8192MB Ram
ATI Radeon HD 4200 (3036MB)


Approximate Purchase Date: Sometime in the next month

Budget Range: From 1700-2000 Complete max is 2200 (if that extra 200 is needed for something important)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, College Work

Parts Not Required: Probably going to reuse my HP 2009m (1600x 900) unless told to do otherwise.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg or Amazon would prefer to get a prebuilt but if I get a lot of help I'll build it myself.

Country: (mine?) US

Parts Preferences: Intel processor, ATI graphics. (only because I've had them with no problems before.

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: I don't really understand what this is so maybe.

Monitor Resolution: Current is 1600 by 900 could also use a Sony 32 inch TV

Additional Comments: I can get an OS through my college for free but would I be able to install it without disks on a custom build? (probably a stupid question)

  1. Id say Sager since its so reliable. I have a Sager from 2002 which was over 2 grand back then and it still works with no replacement parts. It even dominates GTA SA on ultra
  2. $2100:
    no SSD?
    USB 2.0
    1000W PSU? Why?

    I'm a noob
    Also if i got it was planning on getting another AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card (HIS IceQ X2 GHz Edition) in like a year when I could afford another and the site said the power requirement would be ~ 860 so 1000w was the next step up from the 800 that had decent reviews. I don't have any USB 3.0 devices so I didn't think it mattered. I was told SSD only help with loading times and not really with gaming performance. Should I get one?

    Always build it yourself!!! It's not difficult, and you will know how to work on it if you have a problem.

    Here's a quick build from pcpartpicker. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/markwp/saved/1t1v This will leave you with 300-500 bucks room for keyboard, mouse, case fans, speakers and monitor. I know you said you don't want to overclock, but I picked the k model of the intel and a great tower cooler just in case you change your mind. No such thing as too much speed or too much cooling.

    I know you like Radeon, but you might also want to consider a pair of GTX 650 Ti boosts in SLI -- Damn near the performance of a Titan for a total of less than $400 (less than one of your preferred Radeons. Run your OS and "needed" programs on the SSD, run your games, store your data, etc on the HDDs.

    Mark
  5. I agree, you should fit a SSD in that build such as the OCZ Vector 256GB :)
