I just want high FPS, to play stuff like COD and GTA and stuff. I play everything on low settings, so I get more fps. But yes, would a $1000 PC be able to play resource intensive games on low, and if so, what are some recommendations?

we all want high FPS but you will get what you pay for $750 is nothing just save up more then get something a bit better other wise you will have to upgrade a lot quicker thus wasting money

Ever think of building your own? Can lower the cost by quite a bit, and you can def. build one for $1000 that would play games like that on high.

@SupalolCat, two things. First, use the "quick edit" function rather than bumping your thread and secondly this thread is in the wrong place so I'm moving it to the "Systems" forum.

Hi Supalolcat, I'll always advise against a pre-build/branded system. Not only will upgradability in future be an issue but also the quality of components will be suspect especially the invisible components like PSU etc. Plus, you'll get to save a bit by building your own.

This should be a great Gaming system for under $1000 -

CPU: $209 Core i5-760

Mobo : $150 ASUS P7P55D-E Pro

RAM : $95 G.SKILL Ripjaws 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 CL7

HDD : $70 SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB

GPU : $210 EVGA GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB or $240 SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870

PSU : $70 CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX

ODD : $20 Samsung DVD Burner

Case : $50 Rosewill CHALLENGER Gaming ATX Mid Tower Case

HSF : Only if you OC. Otherwise, the stock Intel HSF should be more than good enough. Option - $30 COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

This is as good as it gets for around $900. If however you want crazy fps on high settings, get a Radeon HD 5870/GTX 480 with a 750 watt PSU for some headroom.

Also, if you're not too finicky bout getting Intel, get an AMD Phenom II X4 955 with an ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard for some savings.

This will decimate any $1000 Dell/HP/Acer/Gateway any given day.

EDIT - I actually missed your cyberpower link. It's a terrific deal. Still unsure 'bout the PSU brand, but definitely worth giving a shot if you don't wanna build your own. Even if you have to change the PSU a few months down the line (let's hope that doesn't happen) it'll still be pretty good value.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I might get the cyberpower anyway. I'm 12, and my dad would rather get a pre-built one, cause theres nowhere to get people to put it together.

You're right. As I've already said, go with the Cyberpower one if you don't wanna build one yourself. It's almost the same as the one I had laid out. And also pretty terrific value for money, at least by pre-build standards. You can do a lot worse than that at this price range.
