Which computer is better for gaming Tags: New Build Systems Last response: March 27, 2012 10:15 AM in Systems Share THIS_RANDOM_GUY March 26, 2012 11:25:52 PM I have recently asked a few questions on here because I will be getting my first gaming PC (custom or prebuilt). I was going to go custom, but then went on Cyberpower and the build on Cyberpower was cheaper by about $80. I want to play games such as BF3 on ultra or high (online) and Skyrim. Which one is better? Or neither?
