Tell me what you think about the specs and if there are computers with the same specs or better for a cheaper price, i need a good gaming comp and as of now that looks good

Hi :) 

Decent computer, low to mid range graphics card.... you arent going to be playing BF3 on Ultra for example...

All the best Brett :)

See following for game benchmarks; the graphics in the games are maxed out as much as possible so dropping down from Ultra / Very High will give you better performance results. The test rig uses a slightly older Core i7 920 @ 3.8GHz.

I have an Intel i3 2100 3.1Ghz, 4gb of ram and HD 6850 1GB. I can play BF 3 on medium-high with 50-60 fps most of the time.

That PC is definitely better than mine. It will play most games just fine on higher settings.

Except that it's a rip off and horribly unbalanced.

$1100 for a machine and the graphics card is a 560? But don't worry, it's got an i7 and 16GB of RAM! That will surely make it ready to game! What a joke.

There's also the fact that the power supply is most likely some ^@$! brand like Dynex that will die and take everything with it. Can't believe Best Buy can get away with selling this crap.

Yes, it will run games fine, but for $1100 you could build a system that would roflstomp that one with much more reliable and quality parts.

True, I didn't think about that. My budget PC was only about 550-600 dollars.

well it's obviously ycosting you a little biut more because it's pre-built, but (strange enough) i will say yes, it's worth it. good PC.

self-build cost:
cpu + mobo : $350 (no real reason to get the 3770, since the 3570 is just as good)
ram, plenty of it $150
PSU , one that looks awesome $100
a big big HD $100
an awesome SSD $200
DVD - free. well, $17, there.
and then any GPU you want .. (say a 560Ti) less than $200

a cool looking case $50 or more

grand total $1150.

there you have it.

mind you this build squeezes in a SSD, OR you could have a top end card. OR you maybe could have both, just costs a lil'bit more.
