  1. Hi :)

    You cannot get a high end gaming pc for cheap.... its just not possible...

    An average gaming Pc (not great just average) in my shops is around £1000...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. If you are going to go with intel this is your best bet

    But it you want to go with amd then chose either a phenom ii 975 black edition (or phenom ii 965 black edition) or choose a A8 3870k unlocked

    With the phenomii you could get a radeon hd 6870-6950 or a gtx 550ti-560ti which are all pretty good gpus that can run most games out there on high with 1280x800 resolution

    With the A8 it has a good onboard gpu that can crossfire with other amd radeon hd 6000's but you need a good mobo to utilize this

    Ive chosen all overclockers because thats the main thing. If you dont overclock you probabley wont catch up to the cpu standards of today.

    Yah, I said cheap but not exactly as cheap as a $500 rig, Do you have any suggestions? I will go for a $1000-600 rig

    Hi :)

    If you are going to buy or build a $1000 rig...make sure the graphics card costs at least $500 of it...

    All the best Brett :)
