Hi all i hope this is the correct section &i'm not imposing.I wanting to buy a prebuilt gaming rig that'll max out crysis at 1920x1080 very high 45fps 1600x1200 4aa/4af 45+.My budget is 2.5 i feel this is enough i've looked at the titan viper on overclockers uk,the ultima vanquish,the dreadnought been told to hook these sysyems up with a 5870 or gtx 480.On the other hand cyberpower administrator tells me to go with their black pearl shove in a couple of 480sCF to this or put 2 5870s into the i7 pheonix.With these 2 systems costing £3100 after i've added a monitor keyboard etc,is this the price to pay to max crysis out in 2010?I'd be saving over a grand with the titan viper similarily with other overclockers.Could someone please help with their much needed experience as i don't want to be wasting money
Thanks guys but i've never had a desktop before only a laptop for the last few years.I don't see myself building a high end gaming machine with completely no experience whatsoever but thanks anyway you see i live in glasgow theirs only pc world which sell overpriced nonsense,that's why i'm drawn to cyberpower overclockers for a gaming rig as they're preoverclocked with i7 cpu@4ghz &top gpu.On the other hand a friend of mine who lives in harris who's built in the past who recentyl bought prebuilt system suuggest other than buying prebuilt i could as creative computing a shop not so far to walk to,that they make 1 for me.Maybe you could list all the parts for me here to max crysis out i go give it to them ?
DIY machine always end up better and cheaper than prebuilt machine.
- Parts are better. Its whatever you choose goes(model, brand, etc) to your machine
- Warranty is a lot better ( 5yrs for drive, 3 yrs for cpu, 3 yrs for mb, lifetime for gpu, 5 yrs for PSU) compare to the 1 year standard warranty of pre-built machine.
- BIOS that will allow you to tweak settings to your satisfaction Unlike the limited BIOS of branded PC who are trying to protect its name
With respect to Desktop PC i never own a pre-built machine. I always build my own.
There is plenty of help and guide from the different sites.
