Hi I'm new and I joined so I could have some help here. I want to build a gaming computer for $700-800. Please when recomending things, I am in Canada. If it helps I'm trying to get a computer that will play bf3 and I mean buying everything(monitor,keyboard,speakers), but I don't need a gaming keyboard or mouse. I'm not able to buy this week but in the next few weeks as I am getting my money as of right now. I really have no prefference but I want a quad core that's atleast 3.2ghz. Idk about overclocking. Oh and Idc about sli/crossfire, but I'd like it supported for future upgrades. Thanks. 1 last thing, I do like tigerdirect.ca and newegg.ca
Hi there. I'm from Canada and you may want to consider NCIX as well. They do online price matching. Check out directcanada.com as their prices are usually the cheapest. I ordered most of my parts from NCIX and CanadaComputers and price matched a lot of things from DirectCanada. That way, you can do in-store pickups and save on shipping!
If you want to overclock, you should get an unlocked processor like the i5 2500k coupled with a p67 or z68 motherboard. I'm pretty new to computer building so I wont suggest much, but maybe it'll help if I post what I got. I've been running this for about a week without a hitch. Good luck!
