New Desktop for Gaming
I am looking for a good pre-built desktop in the $800.00 to $900.00 range for gaming. The only game that I currently play is WOW. I do not need a monitor,keyboard or speakers. What do you guys suggest as the best value for the money that will keep up with the new WOW release coming out next month. Thanks in advance.
I would contact a local computer shop and inquire as to how much they would charge to build a rig from your new parts --- $150 to $200 would not be unreasonable depending upon their overall efforts.
That would allow you to acquire the best available parts for your needs and wishes without being constrained by an OEM build.
As an example:
W7 64-bit // Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H: $213
PhII 560BE // Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333: $157
HIS Radeon HD6850 1GB: $180
Antec Six Hundred Black Computer Case: $65
Corsair CMPSU-650TX 650w Power Supply: $80 (before $10 rebate)
Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB Hard Drive: $55
Samsung Optical Drive: $18
