Hello everybody.

I'm looking for a preassembled gaming rig in the price range of 600-700 $ (Shipping+Tax included).

Approximate Purchase Date: This week/probably wednesday
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (world of warcarft,emulators,skyrim,mmo's)
Are you buying a monitor: No
Do you need to buy OS: Yes, Windows 7 or 8
Location: NY. United States
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comment 1: I would love to purchase the Ibuypower "Revolt" but so far I couldn't find a decent deal in my price range. (So far I checked ibuypower/walmart/bestbuy/target and newegg. Usually all the available "Revolt" Deals have at least 1 flaw in form of a bad videocard/extremly low power supply or the insane shipping cost of 75 $ at ibuypower.com.
Additional Comment 2: A integrated Wireless card would be a big plus.
Additional Comment 3: I'm aware of the fact that purchasing a preassembled gaming rig and eventually purchasing a "revolt" is not the best *bang for your buck* option.

Thanks in advance for your answers/help.

Well, I'm just gonna go ahead and say it, but you can get way more for your money if you build your own computer. With a budget such as yours, you really aren't going to be able to find any prebuilt with anything more than like a GT 630 or 640 or the AMD equivalent. You'll also get a crap power supply and overall cheap components/accessories because manufacturers have to make a profit. Sorry because I'm not suggesting a prebuilt for you, but I just can't.

+1

i'm with him. about the best you can hope for at that $$ amount would be an i3 or an A10... you're not gonna see much more then that.

you can do much better if you build it yourself.

Just being curious here, but why? All it takes is a screwdriver and an hour (Usually less) of time.

It seems to good to be prebuilt.. Decent specs, of course if you built it would be better.


that is beyond terrible. 610gtx? really? what's he gonna do with that, open spreadsheets? a 4100? really? ugh

He'd be better off with a flippin' A10-5800k and no gpu.

First of all I would be totally screwed if the slightest hardware/internet/boot problem would occur(and that would be one hell of a disappointment after playing world of warcraft with 10 fps for the last 4 years). Second of all I just feel more comfortable to buy a preassembled gaming rig.(knowing the machine will work right out of the box)

+ 350 watt power supply = 705 $. I would be willing to pay that price but the absolute disgusting 75$ shipping fee is a no-go for me.(compared to the 9$ newegg shipping fee for a "revolt")

Unless I missed one, probably the best option on the prebuilt from Newegg is and AMD FX-8320 with a HD 7770 for $699 and free shipping.

I would still hope to convince you to take the plunge and try to build it yourself. It's really just like legos or lincoln logs, there aren't a lot of mistakes to make. Remember, there's a selection bias to the troubleshooting posts -- people are far more likely to write a post when there's a problem rather than an "everything's a-ok!" post. Building PCs is much easier than it was 20 years ago.

But if you don't, keep in mind that you're going to sacrifice quite a bit of performance and longevity and you're going to have a certain lack of flexibility with your choices.

Best of luck! I wouldn't go lower, GPU-wise, than a 7770 because then you'll start to cross the threshold at which the newest games aren't even playable at medium settings at decent resolutions. Crysis 3 already gets the 7770 past that point, but it's an especially mean game. If you start to venture into the territory in which you're selecting a GTx10, I'd strongly urge you to reconsider and save up money and wait until you can do better.
