Hey guys, long time no post. i was looking into buying a fairly good gaming pc(purely gaming) for 10 hundy sticks.(1000 g's)

i own a ps3 and 360 so it wont be my only gaming system, but i would still like a fairly decent gaming pc.

i looked into building myself a while back, and do NOT want the headache again.

if you could please find a built computer and link the site (MUST EITHER BE AUSTRALIAN OR POST TO AUSTRALIA) within 1000 bucks that'd be great.

thanks guys. :)

If it's a widescreen tv it's probably running 1280x720 which is an HD resolution but not "full HD" 1920x1080. For it is definately not HD then it could be running 848x480.
Either way if it's not full HD then it won't take a very powerful PC to drive it, say an Athlon II X2 550 CPU with a Radeon 5770 or even possibly a 5670.
If you can provide the make and model of the TV or confirm the resolution we can be more specific.

This one?
Product: Base TLI93OA-TP LCD TV

1440x900 is a fairly low gaming resolution these days.

That system includes a monitor but would be a fairly low end gaming rig.
You should aim for a triple or quad core cpu and an ATI 5750 (or 4850 1Gb) or Nvidia GTS 250 as a starting point for that resolution.

I'm in NZ so can't help you there sorry.

The systems on site you linked have old or low end CPU's with entry level graphics although they do offer custom quotes.
I'd see if they can do something like.

ATI 785 chipset motherboard
4Gb RAM
AMD Athlon II X4 Processor 635 2.9GHz (Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition also a good option)
ATI 5750 graphics (4850 would do but does not support dx11)
Windows 7 home premium
hdd + odd

Post what they come back with and we can refine from there to meet your budget.
