I think if you built on Cyberpower you could get something along the lines of:
1TB Hard Drive
Yes that would be great for gaming but you can get so much more if you build it yourself, it really isn't as hard as it may seem. Try watching some videos and looking at some guides. By building it yourself you could probably improve on that build and get something like this:
The Phenom x6 CPU's aren't good for gaming, an Intel i3 or i5 is much better. Seriously though, would you not consider building it yourself? I know that it may seem like it would be better quality if you had someone build it for you but it's usually the opposite. These kinds of companies tend to rip you off wherever they can* and don't put the amount of care into your system that you would. They sometimes use low quality PSU's and cases too.
*I bet the website said that system would require 800W and that is ridiculous, 400W would probably do it. Most would recommend around 500W though.
Just to try and prove the point one more time, here is a system that would outperform that in games while still costing less and using higher quality parts:
okay thankyouthankyou. I've always been iffy on buying something from ibuypower, or cyberpowerpc for reasons like this. What about newegg? Would that work out well? I'm just scared to try, I don't want to break any of the little parts while putting things in, and wasting money. If i bought all these parts you're suggesting, how much do you think I could get it built for by some small computer store or something?
I can't really recommend anywhere, i'm from the U.K. I know Newegg is a reliable place to buy components though.
Building a PC yourself isn't that hard, just try watching a few videos and reading a few guides and you can really save yourself a lot of money. The only realistic ways to break something are:
- Bending CPU pins, but you would have to be very heavy handed to do that.
- Killing something with a static charge, just buy an anti static band and that won't happen. Try to keep static sensitive things away from carpets/fabrics too but don't worry too much about it. My GPU was sat on my bed for a bit a few times and that works fine.
- Something short circuiting or overheating because it's not screwed in properly. This one is self explanatory, just make sure everything is screwed or clipped in before you turn anything on.
That's really all there is to it, just read a few guides and you will be fine.
