Hi im looking to buy a pc for my gaming needs, seeing as its my first I do not want to buy a blundering mess. I am going for pre-built as I do not want to build my own, nor do I want someone to do it. Pre-built is my only option.

I want to ask here as you are all switched on when it comes to computers and well I would like that assurance that the pc I buy works.

Im looking for a pc that can play next gen games (bf4, arma 3, cod ghosts etc) on high or ultra at 60fps.

I have a monitor of 1280 x 960 resolution already and a keyboard and mouse. I need an operating system if it is not already included in the build.

Here are 2 builds I found could you all please give advice on them and tell me if they will play the games I mentioned!

My budget is £800 which is around $1200.

Thank you all and please reccomend some pre-builts. Thanks

The one with the intel cpu is faster and more powerful for games.

The Amazon one has a stronger CPU and a weaker GPU. The other one has a stronger GPU and a marginally weaker GPU. I'd go for the AMD one.

Of course, I'd have to recommend building it yourself, since all you really need is a screwdriver and about an hour.

With that intel one the i7 is not necessary for gaming, you will see negligible performance increase over an i5. I would have a look around for a prebuilt i5 CPU computer if you decide to go with intel rather than AMD.

Now I have a few friends who have used this site to either buy a PC from them or figure out a rough price for components. Ive never used the website myself though so cant speak first hand as to the service quality. But if you are looking for a prebuilt one that site allows you to configure it to your hearts content. The only lacking thing I would say is the poor CPU cooler choices.

However, I agree with Deemo13. Building it yourself is the optimal way to go.

So the amd looks like it can play bf4 ultra? If not, could you give me a build that will that fits my budget and I guess I'll build it myself!
