Build on a Budget

Hello!

Long time lurker, first time poster. I was just wondering if anyone had some build advice for a first time PC gamer. I'm on iBuyPower (rep?), and I have ~$2000 to burn; minus display, keyboard, mouse, and speakers. What should I get? I'll be using this computer almost exclusively for gaming, let alone a little video editing. I want to run games like BFBC2, Black Ops, Just Cause 2, and the like.

Thanks in advance for any advice to offer.

  1. ^ You are pretty sure you want to buy a Pre-built ? Are you willing to try building yourself one instead ? If Yes, then we could come up with a list of parts that would suit your needs, but if you want to go Pre-built, then you would find better help in these sections -

  2. Okay, thanks. I'll post there. I don't want to screw anything up.
  3. I agree on building you own. I built my P4 machine on Ibuypower but i regretted not doing it myself, would have saved me money I could have used for a better video card way back when.
