Okay so my questions are: Is this like a good starter gaming PC? I would like to play CoD, Team Fortress, DayZ, Payday 2, Goat Simulator, Counter Strike, etc. So I'm wondering if this PC would be able to run games such as DayZ, that seem like are very ''heavy'', if it's able to run DayZ will it probably be able to run almost every game right? Also, I'm getting the Razer Golathius EXTENDED mouse pad and I don't know which one should I buy, the Speed or the Control one? The mouse that comes with this computer is the AZZA Optical 1600dpi Gaming Mouse with Weight Adjustable Cartridge (I don't really know about DPI so I was wondering if this was a good mouse for a starter or should I get a better one with lower DPI?) I don't really stream or do like crazy things with my PC I just want to learn and play some CoD online or Payday 2 that's all. Also, should I get a different keyboard? And
one last question I think, what monitor should I get? I want like a nice 1080 p monitor, I mean I want it to be like HD and look nice.

Like I said, I'm not really into building a PC so I wont really do it, I don't really care if it's 2x more expensive to buy it custom made. I'm going hard on this so I'm willing to spend like 1,800 bucks on PC and keyboard and mouse.

Thank you for all of your support you guys are awesome and sorry I'm a fucking n00b I'm just getting started with this.

  1. The processor is way to much for that graphics card. Downgrade that, or upgrade the gpu. I would also downgrade the case to save a bit of money.

    I also strongly suggest you build a pc yourself, better selection of componets and you know what you put into your pc and is alot cheaper and its not difficult to put it together.
  2. @LookItsRain I'm really worried to mess up building a PC and I don't know what to do, the problem is I want this AZZA case, but I've heard a lot that it's not worth it to order a case because it's fragile and can get damaged.

    If I want to get a better graphics card which one should I get?
    Should I get for the AMD Radeon the Dual Card (CrossFireX)

    You really cant mess up the build, everything is literally plug in, screw in or snap in. The hardest part is selecting componets, but your already on a good website for people to help you out. Here is a vid of Linus building a computer.

    A quite expensive one:

    To add, ive never heard of AZZA until this thread.

    Also, I live in Mexico, so getting the PC parts is going to be quite hard. I mean, I could get them but I don't know if it'll be worth it because of the shipping stuff. So that's another reason why I was buying a built one already.

    Even if you pay 100 for shipping, you will still save 200 dollars and get what you want, know its built right with good componets.
