Im in need of a gaming pc. Currently i have a laptop that i use to attempt to play games. Most of the time the games are so slow its impossible to play. I am a complete noob at computers but i will most likely be able to put it together the only thing is i have no idea about what parts to get. And if its possible i would want it to be able to run most games at high or decent settings


Budget- $400-$600

Usage- Lots of Gaming, Surfing Web

Preferred Website- newegg first if not then any i really dont care

Parts- Dont care as long as there decent

Overclocking- dont know what that means (:

SLI- clueless on that not sure what it means

Please Help!!!!!! :sol:

Need to know if you need a monitor and OS. Those two things represent a fairly large percentage of your budget. Keep in mind that if you have an LCD/Plasma TV, while it's not ideal it can act as a temporary fix in lieu of buying a monitor up front.

Still, gotta know those things before suggestions can be made.

Case and Power supply. Otherwise the parts all look good.
You can swap out that 250GB Seagate for a 500GB Hitachi 7200RPM drive, or a Samsung 500GB Spin-Point drive at 5400RPM
