Computer Upgrade

I am currently looking into upgrading my computer. I will be using it primarily for gaming with a budget of around $800. I have zero experience building a computer so I'm looking into a pre-built but no idea where to look and what to look for. I don't need top of the line and settings at max. Looking for suggestions please.

  1. Are you looking to upgrade you're computer or buy a prebuilt computer? You said both.

    If you want to upgrade your PC i need the exact model or if it's a prebuilt i need the specs.
  2. You're current PC might be worth upgrading but i don't know. It could be as simple as buying a new video and possibly power supply.

    It would definitely be worth buying the parts and building a PC yourself if you are willing to put in some effort.

    If you just want a new PC for gaming now this is something i would buy:

    i5-3570K 3.4 GHz
    AMD Radeon HD7770 1 GB
    8GB 1333MHZ RAM
    1 TB HDD
    600W Power Supply

    Seems like a really good system overall.
  3. What I met by upgrading my computer is just getting a new 1 mine is a good 5-6yrs. old. I'm looking for a decent pre-built mainly for games and household tasks. I don't need to have the settings maxed just need a decent rig for game play ie. MMOs and some suggestions as what site that would give best deal, customer service, etc.. Thanks
