My Question is am i better off rebuilding or will just upgrading my video card work fine for a few more years. I play alot of MMOrpg's and Going to play D3. I played open beta of d3 and it got sluggish in multiplayer on lowest settings with video so Im trying decided before game comes out what is my best path. If i build a computer i have about 700-800 dollar budge or so. I have been paying attention computer scene since i build this computer 4 years ago about so just want to get some oppinions on best route. One more question is cyberpower or ibuypower worth going through as a route also? I know i would be paying more but I also have a kid so dont have as much time to build a computer and invest time too trouble shoot Building a PC if something goes wrong. Thanks for all your guys help
if you upgraded your gfx card, you would be able to play bf3 and all the current games that are available, but it won't be very future proof, when new games come out in a few years it will start to struggle, i would recommend building a new one, keep the psu, hdd case. But get one will at leat an i5 quad and 4gb+ of ram, also get a good graphics card
I find cyberpowerpc to be reputable and a reasonable value for what it is. They come with cheap power supplies and the upgrades are overpriced. Then again my cheap PSU in my old cyber power PC lasted 4 years before I upgraded to this machine without blowing up.
Building your own will provide better value. If you have a decent case and one of Rosewill's quality brand PSUs already you can put a lot more money into the fun components.
