Gaming Desktop $800

I'm looking to get a new gaming desktop and am wondering what's the best bang for my buck. I'm looking to spend around $800 give or take $20 or $30. That limit is before shipping. Also if it comes with a decent monitor I'm willing to spend a max of roughly $1000.

I also have a brand new corsair 750w PSU that can replace a build that includes an inadequate PSU. I also have an antec 300 case with fans.

My game of choice will be WoW but I play many other games too.

    Check out my $850 build here:

    Since you'll save $80 as you already have the PSU, that'll be $796.

  2. This is on my favorite custom gaming computer website it has a bulldozer, a radeon 7750( i would change that under customize) and it is in a sweet case.

  3. Oh I just noticed this is for pre-builts. I'd suggest just trying to build it yourself. It'll be easy to build.

    That's a Youtube from Newegg that shows how easy it is to build one.
  4. I also already have an antec 300 case and would be willing to build my own I just never have.
  5. then I would get an i5 2500k or the ivy bridge version 3750k, a 6870 radeon or and nvida 560 a nice z68 mobo 8 gbs of hyperx 1 tb hdd an ssd and the monitor I listed.
  6. Oh OK, well Brier check out the $850 build I posted above. Easily a cheap but strong build.
  7. Alright I have checked out both builds they look nice, still open to other people's ideas or opinions of they agree on the above ones.

  9. I think I fixed it
  10. A software question for a new (home) build. How much do you guys pay for the operating system. For example, is it about $170-200 for Windows 7?

    It depends on what kind I would reccomend 64 bit if you want to use more than 4 gigs of ram. Here is the windows 7.

    Thanks. It looks like the Home Premium 64-bit for $119 is what I need.

    Yes I think that is the right choice for your price range.
