Hi guys! I've been looking for a gaming PC... I have spend hours and i just can't make my mind. I've seen thousand of reviews. I want to get a Windows 8 computer, good enough to run my games i play .
Games i play:
1) Runescape
2) Minecraft
3) Warcraft III
I also do my homework on PC. I would want a PC that is 1,000-1,200 dollars.
I was looking into these
1) http://www.walmart.com/ip/ZT-Black-Affinity-870-Desktop...
( I think it's a great deal expect for the graphics card.. Don't know if it can run all my games)

2) http://www.costco.com/.product.11762759.html?cm_sp=Rich...|PopularProductsInCategory

3) http://www.costco.com/HP-Pavilion-p7-1298cb-Desktop-wit...

The third build has by far the best graphics, not that it's much and it's at the cost of using a weaker CPU. I can build a $400 computer with twice the gaming performance of it (I'd have to throw in an ~$100 monitor and a ~$30 peripherals set too, but still).

THe first link is a computer and the second is a monitor. Together, they cost $909.98.

The computer is way better for gaming then any of the three that you're looking at and this monitor is a great 1080p display. This isn't as good as building your own computer, but it's a heck of a lot better than the three options that you're looking at.

I looked around i found these
1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
2)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Which is better? Is it worth the extra 100 dollars for the SSD and the Graphics Card?
Also, would these be a better deal than the one you said?

The first one is far worse in gaming performance and the second one is too expensive to beat my suggestion in value and since it doesn't say what SSD model is in use, I don't know if it's worth the price or not. It would be better to just tkae my suggestion and buy a good SSD separately and migrate the Windows installation over to the SSD. You could fit a top of the line 256GB SSD in my suggestion while bringing its cost up to almost exactly $1100, so it'd still be $100 cheaper than the inferior second build in your post that I'm replying too. Of course, that's assuming that you're willing to have the SSD put in the computer and set up.

Yes, i could do that , but my question is will it void the warranty by IBUYPOWER? I think it will wouldn't it?

No, I don't think that it would, at least so long as after you migrate Windows over to the SSD, you don't delete the copy that is on the HDD. Even if it did, all you'd need to do is take the SSD out before returning the computer should something happen and as a bonus, you'd have a backup of Windows too should something happen to the installation on the SSD.
