Hey i am looking to buy a PC from IBuyPower for around 850$ I want to know if this build will be able to record video games like Mass Effect 3, Skyrim, Fallout, Assassins Creed etc. using fraps on high settings atleast (ultra would be nice.) So basically if the build i get from IBuyPower is good enough for what i want then i wont buy other parts but if it isn't then i will. (P.s is IBuyPower a good website to use for buying custom computers? Because I don't know how to make a computer from scratch)
Approximate Purchase Date: probably next month
System Usage from Most to Least Important:-Recording video games with fraps, watching videos
Parts Not Required:-keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, Windows 7
Build it yourself. You get a better system and spend less money. Buy the parts on newegg and go see some tutorials on youtube on how to built it. Just make sure all components are compatible. And if you got a doubt choosing your parts or when building the PC, just post a thread and we will be pleased to clarify your doubts.
Thanks for the 15$ off code thats awesome!! but i have another question. should i get a liquid cooling system??
tbh I'm not really the best guy to ask about cooling. Exspecially liquid cooling. Liquid cooling is much more expensive than the normal cooling I believe(correct me if I'm wrong). If that is the case,it is by no means necessary in a budget build. Many more things come before liquid cooling in a budget build. I would just go for normal cooling. Don't worry about liquid. Hope I answered your question. Goodluck with your build
Btw I highly recommend checking out "how to build a computer"(3 part series) by newegg. Can be found on YouTube. Very helpful for first time builders
