I am looking for a good gaming computer with a good graphics card for gaming. I need it under $1000, that does not include shipping. I don't care for overclocking it so please leave your comments. Below is a link to one was looking at.

P.S. I could build one myself but I need help picking out the parts, if you can comment with links for me to buy them, then I would greatly enjoy it!! Thanks

everything looks good except you would have to upgrade the graphics card, that really is a crappy graphics card. so if you plan on doing some high end gaming like Skyrim or battlefield 3 add at least 300 to that computer. I would recommend just building your own.

Its not gaming PC all that much with that GPU.

U can build it better by yourself for less, with more power and better components.

Can u build it by yourself?

right under my post is the specs of my computer, you can build that one for $1000 if not less since everything has dropped in price, the i5 2500k is the best processor for gaming and everything else works great, I play Battlefield 3 on Ultra and pretty much every other game. Let me know if you have any more questions, I am here to help.

So your budget is $1000 dollars? Do you have any spare parts from an old computer? You can save a bit of money by not buying a new case, hard drive, or any other part that isn't obsolete.

This will be a list of core components, in total it'll be under $800 leaving more for a whatever drives you may need or upgrades to components listed.
