I'm looking to buy a gaming pc but I am not good with all the parts and need some help on what parts are good and not. If you could help me build one then that would be great. Considering I don't know how to put one together I would prefer if it came already built. Games I would be playing are Gta V, CoD zombies, Football manager and new games which come out in the future.
Thanks a lot

:)

Do you need monitor/mouse/keyboard/OS?

Edit - sorry apparently I cant read, but same question for mouse/keyboard and OS

Hey do you think this is any good, just because I wouldn't know how to put the parts together which you gave me. http://www.chillblast.com/pconf.php?productid=18575 . Everything is pretty much the same but change the graphics card to the gtx 660 and also for the power supply I changed to Ultra low noise 600w. If you know any changes could you add them?

The power supply I threw in is actually one of the better rated supplies available, from the options they give that cost more and are lowly ranked I would assume there default supply uses very cheap components.
http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-su...

The 660 is comparable to the 270x but the 270x is quicker

In terms of the rest of the build
CPU - drops down to an i3 so only two cores versus 4 cores with the i5
RAM - 1333MHz vs 1600MHz, most people don't bother building with 1333 anymore since there is a day to day improvement with using 1600
Mobo - I am not a fan of the B75, its one generation older chipset, only has 2 Sata6 ports vs 6 on the H87 (Sata is generally used for hard drives, solid state drives and CD drives)

Overall I can't recommend this since alot of the parts are not that great, you are just paying a premium to have them do the build and give you there insurance on it,

Tom's has a guide on doing your first build, and I would say you will save alot of money and learn/understand how your computer works alot better going this route
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/how-to-build-a-gami...

If you want to order one the things I would recommend are
1) Get an SSD, having a solid state drive for booting and running windows is one of those upgrades that once you get it you wonder how you lived without it
2) 1600MHz and 8GB of RAM are the new standard for builds and I consider them a minimum on anything that I try and setup (make sure to order 64 bit windows, 32 bit cannot use more then 4GB of RAM)
3) The more expensive components are better to pay extra for then try and upgrade later (mobo, CPU, GPU) you can always add SSD's or more/faster RAM to a system but upgrading those core components is much more expensive to do later on

Ok thanks, I've decided to just build one like you said in the beginning. Another question, Can i get any case or does it have to be a particular size. If so which size would i need?

Ok so for Motherboards there are a few main sizes (in order of largest to smallest)
X-ATX, ATX, mATX, mITX -> Most motherboards are ATX or mATX (mini-ATX)

Any case that says ATX, i.e. ATX Tower, ATX Mid-Tower (Most Common) will fit ATX or mATX
Some of the other cases have different distinctions but in general they will say what motherboard forms are supported, the only other considerations you have to worry about is GPU width and length, most cases are giving descriptions for these now as well

In general any Mid-Tower should fit the build I outlined, just check if they provide a max card length (I think that card is 30cm long with the cooler, or full sized as they are sometimes refered to now)
