Hi, Im new to this forum so please excuse my lack of knowledge of computers. Im currently switching from XBOX to PC games.
Im looking for a Pc witch i can play Games such as Battlefield 3/Call of duty but also do some multi tasking.
Iv read the Buyer guide on the forums but im still very unsure at what I should be looking for. ( Cores/graphics )
These are the two computers Iv been looking at lately. Price is a factor so I am trying to get the best bang for my buck.
Acer AMD FX 8120 3.1GHz Desktop Computer (AM3450-EF10P)
Processor Type AMD FX 8120
Processor Speed 3.1GHz
Processor Cores 8
RAM 16 GB
Hard Drive Capacity 2 TB SATA
Graphics Card ATI HD7670 Graphics card
Video memory 2 GB
Yeah, brad, you're going to get a LOT more power out of a home-built computer for a LOT cheaper than if you buy a prebuilt.
Take this $400 rig. Graphically, it'll compete with either computer, and it has an SSD, no less.
For $600, you could build yourself an amazing computer, either using AMD's Trinity, which is an exceptionally good CPU that has no noticeable difference from an i5-3570k for half the price, or using a lower end i5.
Personally, I'd go with the Trinity - they're really not as bad compared to Intel as everyone makes them out to be, they just run hotter.
