Could I get a pretty sweet gaming system built for around 700-800 dollars? I don't keep up with whats been coming out much anymore so I dont know whats good thats new and affordable. Just wondering if I could get some help.. Was wanting a system that ran FPS and MMO's good. ( dont need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers).

um, yea if you already have a decent monitor then you can put together a gaming rig for 800. It wont be GREAT but you would be able to run most names (not necessarily maxed out) tell us if you have any favored companies or sites and what country you live in.

i live in the U.S. I dont have a company im just favorable toward. I did find this setup on newegg. For 789.99. I figured something to get me started then gradually upgrade whatever i can when I can. Just something i can run games decent enough to be satisfied, doesn't have to be flawless. And thanks for the reply JDV.

yea, lets try building you one, and for gaming, go with amd, will save you alot of money without scimping on performance at all. You might be better off in the homebuilt section though.

here's what I got from ibuypower.com

Processor ( [== Quad Core ==] AMD Phenom™ II X4 955 Black Edition Quad-Core CPU )

Processor Cooling ( [Free Upgrade] Liquid CPU Cooling System w/ 120mm Radiator [AMD] )

Memory ( 4 GB [2 GB X2] DDR3-1333 Memory Module - Corsair or Major Brand ** Free Upgrade to DDR3-1600 ** )

Video Card ( NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT - 1GB - Single Card )

Free Stuff ( [Flash Drive] 8GB USB FLASH DRIVE - Free with purchase of Dragon Platform System )

Motherboard ( ASUS M4A78LT-M-LE -- AMD 760G/SB710 Chipset w/ Integrated ATI video, 8-channel, Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, PCI-E MB )

Power Supply ( 500 Watt -- Power Supply )

Primary Hard Drive ( 500 GB HARD DRIVE -- 16M Cache, 7200 RPM, 3.0Gb/s - Single Drive )

Optical Drive ( 22X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive - Black )

Warranty ( Standard Warranty Service - Standard 3-Year Limited Warranty + Lifetime Technical Support )

In the 2010 Mage Tower.

All for $718.00. Before Shipping.

I noticed you missed a cd player. In your rig, this will come with a 3 year warrenty and be done for you. Though it doesn't have an OS in it. ( Not sure if you have one handy, or might be looking to just port your old hard drive.)

You can go onto Ibuypower.com and tweak it further here and there. There's also an option to have everything professionally wired inside, and this neat packing foam to keep everything from jumping around and detching during transit.

I recently bought my current rig from them and I am very pleased with it.

Hope this helps you a little.

@statiic, The motherboard he chose is much better
@natey, you may want a slightly better gfx card to be able to run most modern games.

And its alot cheaper also with something i didnt even add.. I do have an O.S. here for me to use so i dont have to worry about it.. I was gonna see how good my cd player was but since he has included that one i think i may just go with that build. Statiics graphics card much better as well?

Thanks Static for the help too!

Well the great part of that site is that you can go onto it, and build your compy from the ground up. I just gave you the bare minimums and excluded what you already had. You can try everything from a different video card to different types of LED displays on the front of the compy, to the power supply, all that. They also offer intel configurations, if that is the brand you prefer.

I suggested a 9800 gt, but the real cost difference between that, and say a Nvidia gts 250 with 1 gig internal memory is a whopping $14 dollars. But keep in mind that with a better video card comes higher needs from the psu, which increases the price again by $40. The way they have their site set up is primo and can work well within the budget you're looking at; as I was trying to do earlier.
