Hello everyone this is my first post on here (I need a low price due to my age of 14.)
What I'm looking for is a gaming computer for under $1100 dont include OS, monitor, and keyboard/mice. I dont care if you use NVIDA or AMD. And same goes with CPU but i would like to be able to run the game at with all the graphics on very high at whatever the average full screen res is. With FPS in between 30-50. And cooling just have fans. My current setup is about a $700 computer. With an AMD Athlon II X4 Processor (4 CPUs) 2.8 GHz. A ATI Radeon HD 5600 Series graphics card, and 4 gig of ram. I get about 20-40 FPS on Ultra High at 1680x1050. But with the new comp i want it to be as best as i can be for under the price. And it could be many differnet parts to buy a put together. And also does anyone have a recommendation for a monitor. Thanks for helping
Below are some comps I though that might be good I have done some researching but still its complicated.
Looks like a nice build. +1 to raptors ideas with the sound card and CPU cooler.
For a monitor, it really depends on what you want to spend. I decided to go with 120hz ones personally - my favorite being the BenQ XL2410 (nicer than my Asus 120hz). Other than that, I'd say buy a 27" Asus VE278Q, or for a bit less money, something like a 24" BenQ G2420HD. There are too many options really... honestly, just find something on sale unless you are really picky...
Dude, Id def go HD 6950 instead of the Nvidia Alternative. Im not against NVIDIA at all, i actually love the product however the 6950 punches allot harder and the 2gig mem always helps allot when playing any crisis title. I own a 6950 and its such a great card. Id never go 6970, its far to expensive. Add another 6950 and BOOM, massive GPU performance.
So save on the cpu cooler, and get the 212+. Its a great cooler for its price and punches way above its weight. With after market fans, (push - pull) it rivals any air cooled cooler.
