Hello,

I do realize that building my own PC would probably be cheaper. However, I have no knowledge whatsoever towards building a computer, therefore I do not think that it would be a good choice for me. There are a few reasons as to why I would not want to build my own computer, the obvious one would be that I do not have any knowledge towards building, another reason would be spending ages to find a solution to a possible problem.I also don't want to have to buy special tools or wear wrist strap.Just sounds to risky building myself and i don't trust myself lol.But, i am set on having a little beast of a system and if i half to i will risk building it I am willing to spend 700-850$ towards a gaming PC.I do realize that having such a small budget won't buy me a big beast, although I do expect to be able to buy or build a little beast lol a PC that will be able to keep up with the latest games.And run Adobe photoshop,adobe fireworks,Daz 3D,BryceContent,Hexagon,elect type software flawless.I want the PC to be good enough to be able to play latest games i want best bang for my buck. If it's any help, I do spend a lot of my time playing games and building windows 7 custom themes. I also live in US if it's any help. If anyone has any other questions - please ask.

Thank you for reading. P.S.I was thinking about buying this http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I... good idea or not and could i get better bang for my buck.

That's a nice combo deals right there from newegg. You only need a dvd writer and that will be a complete computer. You can also check ibuypower.com they have a lot of computer with reasonable price. If you have knowledge about computer, you can build a nice one with better quality with the price tag of $80.

The computer you listed would still need to be built. It's the same as buying the parts separate. With the deal you have they just bundle the whole price of the items together and reduce the cost by a little bit. If you do end up buying the computer you listed, you would need to get a DVD writer and put the whole thing together yourself.

I was anxious about building my own computer when I first started, but it honestly is one of the easiest things to do. The people on here will help you ever step of the way, and if you do run into a snag newegg has great customer service.

Thanks for the information i just realized that i would half to build myself lol my buddy that now lives in different state than me is who found that deal for me and just told me in email message that it's not prebuilt and that it's cheaper to build it myself there are a lot of people that will try and steer you to get AMD due to it being cheaper but trust me it's not worth it.So i will take my friends advice and buy this today http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I... my next question would be how much is a DVD writer going to cost me and where can i get a awesome deal to fit my needs for this build.Thank you all kindly for being so nice and helpful.

DVD Writers are probably the cheapest component you buy in your build. Check this one out: http://www.amazon.com/Asus-24xDVD%C2%B1RW-Serial-Intern...
The best thing you can do is look at the reviews and don't spend anything more than 25 bucks or so. I bought one for 22 early last year and it has worked flawlessly.

I suggest you build your own computer! It's really not that bad especially with help from friends, you guys can do it together and then you'll be hooked! I've built two of mine and love the experience. I was afraid at first, but it was all worth it.

The 560 ti (the video card you have in that bundle) is probably the best in price vs performance right now. Good bundle for you gaming and production needs!

Have you bought the bundle yet? If you haven't, I will post a build that will be a little bit better for the same amount of money.

Thank you for your help i have not ordered yet due to to much stress my friends are fighting among each other about me buying this or something else it's a bit childish imo they are acting like gangsters over my build and taking everything to personal i almost don't even want to get a p.c. no more key word almost lol one says amd other says intel i don't know who is right and it almost to the point i think there going to end up fist fighting i rather that didn't happen so i don't know what to do big mistake asking either of them for help anyways thanks if i do build the intel i will get that!

I just did my first one and I understand what your feeling, it seems really overwhelming. But you have found a great website here with TONS of people that are willing to help and know what they are talking about.

My only advice, research, then do some more research and then after your done with that research a little more. You can never have to much knowledge when your going to do something like this. No one in here knows what you want out of your computer more than you do. And right now you probably don't know what you want or need out of your future computer. So the more knowledge you have yourself before you order, will save you hundreds in upgrades/changes you will want to do.

Hope this helped.
