New Computer

Is this a decent, stable build?

Im getting a new computer and my maximum budget would be somewhere between 700-730$. I've been looking at this and it looks decent but I'm not the best with computer specs.

    No, I could get you a much better computer for the same price. Only if you build it yourself.
    Check out this build, I made this for my friend Billy and it's around $700.

    since you posted it, i will bestow myself the privilege of one criteria and suggest more than 16 Mgs of cache on the HD but still overall a nice strong build :thumbs up:

    Okay thanks for the advice because I read reviews on the card the AMD Raedon 6450 and its pretty crappy so thanks. Should I get that build or could I get a better one
  5. sorry guys I'm new to this computer stuff and I cant really manage a self build that well. If you guys could help me with one or show me how to make one I'd appreciate it.


    The only thing I have to keep in mind is that I have a max budget at around 820$ including the screen and any other components I need to buy.

  7. Hey can you help with the selection of a case? Like what is an average gaming computer size? Full, Mid, Mini, Desktop, or SFF?


    Oh and on the build you made, wouldnt you need another 100$ for Windows 7?
