First Time Builder? $700-$1000 rig

Hi, I want to make a computer for UDK, photoshop, 3ds Max, and gaming. My current budget is $700-$1000, but the lower the better :)

I need AT LEAST 8gb of RAM, and a nice quiet system would be great. Also, I won a small TV from a raffle and I'm planning to hook it up to the TV monitor if that matters.

I prefer from Amazon, but Newegg would be good too. Thanks!

  1. hello op

    if u are going to game then a tv will be a waste

    tvs are very and has very slow response timing.

    means if u are a hard core gamer u will get irritated of that lagging.

    the motion response or anything which adds frames to make it looks smooth it actually make it worse :pfff:

    if u have the gaming option in ur gaming then u are good to go

    u can decide weather to go with a monitor or the tv try of some time if u thing that is impossibe then change it
  2. I never knew that, I guess that's why my friend's computer lags so much when playing The Old Republic on low settings while I can play on med finely with the same specs on a monitor. Guess the TV can be in the guest room :P thanks for the info
