Ok so hey how is everyone?
I have decided to start playing some computer games such as SC2 and WoW.
Was browsing around the web to see if I could find a gaming computer but I don't know what's up to date these days or what's good or what not. I was browsing and found this http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/AMD_Fusion_APU_Confi...
I would like some opinions if this tower is any reliable for maybe about 2 years atleast. If not then could anyone point me in the right direction to just build my own? I was looking at ibuypower.com or something, they didn't look to right in price with the stuff they were giving for some reason... So if this computer isn't any good then.
Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP, before the end of September
Budget Range: 500-600 before/or after rebagtes
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, movies, homework, web
Parts Not Required: Moniter, Keyboard, mouse, speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, actually any reliable site is fine
Country of Origin: US
Parts Preferences: any well trusted brands
Overclocking: no idea what this is.
SLI or Crossfire: no idea what this is
Monitor Resolution: Probably going to use my TV, 1280x720? It's about 56" or something with the Monitor adapter or HDMI what not.
Additional Comments: Would like to know how much for the HDMI port if there is such a thing for towers.
I'll second 008rohit's build. If you build it yourself you will appreciate it more and gain knowledge on how to upgrade it. If you have it built for you, you will have passed up an opportunity to learn, and spend more on an inferior system (to one which you could build).
Hey, am I able to get these parts all from newegg? or what other sites are good to look at?
#edit: ok so I looked at newegg and was able to find most of those parts, but I wasn't able to find "Graphics Card : Sapphire Raedon HD 6850 1GB - GDDR5 - $125
RAM : Corsair 2 x 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz Dual-Channel Memory - $45.99" These two at those prices.
Also the case I found was "APEX PC-389-C Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case"
Am I able to use that case into this build?
##edit: SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
I found this graphic card instead since I wasn't able to find the original one that was listed. Any opinions?
As well for the RAM, I found this one on tigerdirect.
Corsair XMS3 TW3X4G1333C9AG 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 RAM - - PC10666, 1333MHz, 4096MB (2x 2048MB), 240 Pin, Dual-Channel
My question is the build on top already good? Should I put the new i5 and graphic card I found? I mean all I'm going to do is play WoW, SC2, homework, and probably stream videos, watch movies only. I'm most likely going to hook this up to my TV, so would the HDMI wire help put a sound in? or would I have to buy a sound card or something? So confusing ;p
*edit the changes for those 2 parts is still within my budget somewhat so...?
