Gaming PC advice! Buying a new one!

Hello! I've decided that I don't want to deal with building a custom PC for my brother, I would instead rather buy one. I want to spend between $400-600 on this PC and I am limited to newegg.com and amazon.com. I was hoping somebody could find a pc on each that gives him the best run for the money and then I will decide between the two of them! I know this is a lot to task but if somebody can help me out it would be greatly appreciated! ALSO, I plan on buying him a new GPU around christmas time (no more than $200 but I want the processor and the case to be able to handle/fit a full sized graphics card!) Thank you so much! Need advice ASAP!

    Hello, I really wish you luck but I need to order one TONIGHT, I don't have an OS and need to do this immediately as his birthday is coming up soon. I really love helping out small businesses and that's exactly what I did when I bought my PC but if you make a website and get going send me a message so I can check it out! When I buy PC's, the smaller the company the better! If I wasn't in such a rush I would definitely look into your offer! Once again, very sorry!

    when you get that GPU in a few months just slip it in
  6. there is this one,Which is good

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883227495

    BUT this one has an fx 6300 (Beats an i3) And a gtx 650 which is a very decent card for the price

  7. To be completley honest i would go with the second choice :)
  8. oh here was my fb page for my site. I had an accual site up but nobody ordered so i couldn't keep it up

  10. I don't think any of those PC's will support a full sized graphics card though, will they? They look very small and judging by the card I currently have, it wouldn't fit in a case like that.
  11. Correct me if I'm wrong though!

    The one with the FX 6300 WILL fit a full size graphics card due to the case design :)

    the CoolerMaster 430 will

    the thing that scares me about that build is the no-name 300W PSU...most GPU's require a minimum of 500W.

    EDIT: i just checked, the GTX 650 requires a 400W minimum PSU

    Yeah thats the bad thing about pre-built computers. They put the lowest psu in there.
  16. I wish i could build a quality computer for this guy,I hate recomending pre-builts. I would feel much better knowing him to get a good quality computer that can EASILY be upgraded no worry about a psu or case size.

    You have to remember too that thats very overkill. As long as it has a decent 12v rail and the correct pci power plugs you will be fine,Hell i could run a 550ti on a 350w psu. But you know its sketchy with a 300w and a 6 core.
  18. Will this one hold a full sized GPU? It is a little more around my price range at the moment! Also will this be able to hold an ssd later on?

    It should! its a 500w psu but as long as it has the correct power connectors you should be fine. For $200 or less the full size GPU's are not that big compared to my 11 inch 7950
