Want to buy gaming pc

This my second gaming PC I semi built my old PC back in 2008 bought the PC off Ebay with a Intel Q6600 pro and bought Graphic GT9600 card, PSU 450W and case cheap full size from retail store total cost £500 lucky its been reliable.

This time I don't want to take that much of a risk hope you guys could help me find a high end gaming PC I've saved £500 and should have another £200 in 2 weeks I want to play in HDMI 720/ 1080p I want to have the upper edge over others in Shooter games and can Raid with no lag on World of Warcraft on a monitor at least 24" with good sound quality I also need a new gaming mouse and keyboard. Do I have enough money do I need to save more if so how much you recommend

I can build it myself just not so clever picking the parts I would like to go Intel build.

Hope you guys can help me out I'm not good writing post.

  2. You should go higher with the video card, and can go lower with the power supply. Radeon 7770 and a 500 watt PSU is plenty for the system.

    On a cheap update, get a faster quad core CPU, the Radeon 7770 and keep the rest of the system, it should run things pretty well. In games like WOW, much of the smoothness will be from the server and internet connection, even with a great video card and CPU you can see lower frame rates.

    I have an Intel Q9695 with an nVidia GTX260 and can run WOW on Ultra very well.

    Also swap the hard drive for a Black series.

    I'd also go with Windows 7 OEM instead of Windows 8, just because Windows 8 is the worst thing MS though up of since Bob and Me.
  3. Thanks for commenting do you think its worth saving to 1k then buying a gaming system? I read so many post watched tonnes of vids about gaming pc and it makes my head spin trying to get to the point what build do I really need to spend on, I feel I don't have near enough to really enjoy my new build with all these rich teaser showing off their specs.
  4. While this is in US dollars, the system builder articles have some great info for several budget systems.


    Also check out the builds here in the sticky posts, even though there are quite a few there. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-31.html

    May not help with the confusion but at least will give you some more things to be confused by hehe.
  5. thanks for those links now need to choose the right one for me I think I save more >.<

    You may want to save a bit more, like I said, don't know exactly how much US $1,000 will buy for you, but at the 1,000 mark you are really getting a very good computer, if you drop to 700 you'd have a bit of a compromise in some areas. If what you have will get you $1,000 US worth of parts, you can feel safe you will have a good system.

    Remember, used parts are also out there, may PC people sell their old systems, even if they are pretty new. You can find some good bargains unless you want to build your own with new parts.
  7. In 2 weeks I have £200 on top of £500 think thats like $1100 I willing to save to £1000 then splash out on a nice Intel I5 4760k build I should also add I work in retail so this time of year I earn £160 per week.

    I do appreciate your help
