Hello,
I am looking for a 2000 dollar prebuilt desktop. I would prefer it not be from either cyberpower or ibuypower because
I have had horrible experiences in the past with them. I need this desktop to play bf3 and newer games at around
40- 60 fps on ultra in 1080p.
Also I don't need a mouse, keyboard, headset, or monitor included in the 2000, but I do need windows 7 and a internal wifi card.
Finally I would prefer an intel processor and nvidia graphics card over amd.
Thank you

Do NOT get alienware - they overcharge like crazy.

I know you're not going to like this, but... it's really REALLY easy to build your own computer and it'll be about half the price.

You could even just order the parts, find a tech in your area, and pay him $100 to build it for you. A lot of us will do it for free on our off time, because we like building computers.

If you do get a prebuilt, buy from Falcon. (http://www.falcon-nw.com/)

They're the only decent prebuilts I've ever seen. And their Tiki impressed the hell out of me.

Thanks dude
The falcons are nice but they are a little overpriced. And yes I was thinking about building a pc because I have before, but this time I want to buy a prebuilt so its less work and it is more reliable ( not that I am saying that you guys aren't reliable).

Why prebuilt?
Seriously, building computers is literally like putting together lego's.
This fits in here, this goes here, and these pieces are going to get left out.
cause no one loves the pieces that aren't in use.

Anyway, we could seriously just give you a list of parts, you order them.
and then you put them together, easy as that.

^this, if you live in CT/MA area ill put it together for a blunt or a bj from your wife :D 

+1 aswell, they make badass rigs although they do cost a pretty penny performance is unparalleled.


What would you recommend from Falcon that is about 2000 dollars. Most of them are pretty pricey when upgrading.
How about origin and maingear.

Thanks though

z77 talon, upgrade the video card to a 7970 and add in a ssd, comes to right under 2k.

Just keep in mind building is VERY easy and there are a TON of resources available. You would be able build a better machine then the one i suggested above for half the cost.


I checked out the Talon and its very nice.
Which is better, a 680 or dual 660 tis cause they are about the same price

go for the 670 if you want Nvidia (680 is a waste of cash), however i would still recommend the 7970


Thanks for the advice jrgong
I will definitely weigh the options you have given me.

jrgong is right.... again.
680 is a waste of cash, the 670 is a great card.
same with the 7970.
pure preference for you on that.

R4 Titan - worth the money, you can also take what you have now and wait for Titan LE (600-700$) or GTX 780 which will come in may
