Hello everyone,

Before stating my needs, thanks for reading this and the help in advance, i really appreciate it.
I'm looking for a Gaming System to run Aion in max settings.
The only restrictions that I have, is that it must be under 1000 USD (Could go to 1100 but only if its REALLY worth it)
also everything must be from US Best Buy or US Compusa (This is because those are the stores in which I have credit :p ).

Thank you! Now the template.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This next 2 weeks, as soon I have the information.

BUDGET RANGE: $1000 (Could be 1100 if its really worth it...)

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Watching DVD (Not blueray) and if possible watching tv (Just an extra, not that important).

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: OS, Speakers (Keyboard and mouse are optional, I have some basic wireless mouse and keyboard).

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Bestbuy and Compusa, Sorry, I know this is lame :[

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US.

PARTS PREFERENCES: 20 - 24" LCD I would like a nice monitor, anything else is up to you, I trust you! :D 

OVERCLOCKING: Not really, I don't really like to mess with the system...

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Again, up to you.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Doesn't really matter a lot, I like high resolutions.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Thank you! I'll be checking this a lot, so feel free to ask anything I'll answer pretty quickly.

Whats wrong with newegg or tigerdirect?

Going with either of those 2 companies severally restricts options and is a lot more expensive.


On newegg we can usually do a phenom II x4 955 + 5850 + 1920x1080 monitor for $1,000. On bestbuy that'll be closer to $1200 or $1300.

Well it's a complicated history, the main reason is that I won't be the one paying for the PC, a friend of mine will be... and he only have credit available on those two stores, just another question, isn't compusa related to tigerdirect now?

That seems like a nice setup! Give me just 3 days to see if I can convince my friend that getting a credit at newegg its a good idea, so you guys have more options.. But if he doesnt agree, that compusa seems like a nice deal! Ill post a reply when I have more information.

about $1100, if you want a cheaper pc, buy a GTX 460 instead of the 5850
