Show me a good build for gaming

I want a good computer to play games like: crysis, napolean total war, modern warfare 2, and battlefield bad company 2 on maxed settings. My budget is 2k or less. My screen resolution is 1920x1200.
I want a configuration on a computer manufacture as i have no time or skill to make a computer.

  1. anybody?
  2. i was looking more to get something from a computer manufacture, for example alienware. (i know alienware is probably not going to be my choice)
  3. Compare the components inside the OEM computer you are looking at to the computers linked. Remember hat manufacturers tend to use less powerful GPUs with more powerful CPUs and you can custom build some computers.
  4. What is your total budget?

    Dont go for complete builds! They are very expensive and charge you more than you ought to pay!

  6. or i will build it and ship it to you for your 2,000.... lol it will be better than a company pre-built.

    However i suggest building it yourself
  7. as i said i really cant build it myself. and as i said my budget is 2000 or below
  8. i know for 2,000 dollars i could build you a sweet gaming rig and ship it to free of charge.. and You can build it yourself there are plenty of people on here that will be glad to help you... It is not hard trust me!
  9. thanks okay could u show me exactly what it would be.
  10. I did above with all my links
  11. no need for windows i have it already, i can install that myself
  12. then you could get a 5870 instead of a 5770 and get 8 gigs of ram instead of 4
  13. is this good?

    Original Equipment manufacturer. It means someone like Asus, Acer, HP, Gateway etc. put together the computer. In my context.
  16. is my setupd good? will it play any game i throw at it on highest settings?

    Pretty much. But why are you going with a server hard drive? And why not the extra $10 for a 955 BE? .2GHz higher and an unlocked multiplier.
  18. okay didnt notice the server hardrive thanks
  19. is this better?

  20. 2000$ is a good amount to work with. I'm probably not adding any new advice but, make sure it has lots of RAM and a nice CPU and a decent size hard drive. Also whenever you find one you are interested in do some research on the video card. Although you may want to add things like extra RAM and a nice video card yourself to save some money.
  21. That setup looks good. I only mentioned the hard drive because although the server will be more reliable and a bit faster than the WD black, it's a lot more expensive. I would recommend a samsung spinpoint F3 or a western digital black drive.
  22. are you refering to oem Windows? This is just a one time install windows disc in which the person installing needs to provide end user support....
  23. Retail version allows for instal, reinstal, reformat as many times as you want on the same computer.
  24. The mobgo supports SATA3. I know because I just used this same mobo in a build for my wife.So why not WD 640GB SATA3 Desktop Storage 32MB Cache Drive for around $60. Or WD CAVIAR GREEN 1TB SATA3.0 DESKTOP STORAGE 64MB CACHE BARE $80 http://www.antonline.com/p_WD10EARS-GP_768714.htm. I used WD WD1002FAEX Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" internal hard drive (OEM) = $109.99 @Mwave. Buy.com now offers the same drive for $103 & free ship.
