I do not know how to build a PC.
I built a PC before at a computer shop however I keep getting weird errors.
I just want a PC that can run games from 2007-present.
I just need a PC that can support games 5 years down the road.
I do not want to do advance stuff like dual graphic card, water cooling, overclocking, etc.
Buying alienware. (pro: if any problem, send the PC back to alienware. Con: my friend told me alienware are using lousy parts!)
build new PC (pro: I can choose my parts. Con: if any problem, i do not where to start)
Should I buy alienware or build another at another shop??
If you're not ready to learn about each computer part and how to know a good part from a bad one, then buy from alienware. Be aware though, no computer made today will support a game made 5 years from now very well, especially not without sli or crossfire.
Alienware doesn't use lousy parts..
How much do you have to spend?
I am currently building a low cost gaming pc, which should be capable of gaming at maximum settings for a few years.
building a pc is really easy if you learn what all the tecky speak means...
basically if your looking for a gaming pc i would say build it, if you was looking for a normal computer for internet/music then buy one.
