I really want a gaming PC and I really want it to be able to play anything. I would also like to be able to upgrade in the future. Some gaming build options would be nice and that brings me here :) .. Please help me and thank you.


Approximate Purchase Date: this month or next

System Usage: Gaming and Web surfing (would like this system to be able to play essentially any video game)

Budget Range: $700-$800 absolute maximum

Are you buying a monitor: yes (also need a mouse and keyboard)

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, tigerdirect, etc (doesn't really matter)

Location: Maryland

Overclocking: Maybe, probably not.

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Additional Comments: My first build, please try to explain things throughly

I doubt you can by good peripherals and a computer than can handle all the current/upcoming games with a 800$ budget. My advice would be to troll arond on craigslist or some place and get yourself a cheap old monitor and a 9$ keyboard/mouse kit then upgrade your input devices later, and put all your money into hardware. I kinda did the exact opposite, didn't buy a graphics card for a system that can handle a 670/7970 in sli/crossfire to save money, then bought 27 inch monitor and 100 dollar mouse/keyboard. hah. but in all reality, You'll be alot happier if you get better hardware and upgrade your periherals/input devices later. My 2 cents. (running off the i5's IG for now hah)

This is a little over your budget but it will let you play all games on high or ultra and some upgrade options later. With the mobo you can get an i5 3570k later for overclocking and add a second hd 7850 2gb for a good crossfire setup. You could get the price down some by getting a pentium g2120 for about $95.

Decent little sub $800 build with i5 and a well factory overclocked Radeon 7770 with good 1080p display and peripherals and so on.

Same except CPU is an i3-3220 and graphics is a Radeon 7850. Still at about $800

i5 and 7850, but inferior peripherals, motherboard, and hard drive. Still at about $800.

Same as above, but with an i3 again and it now has a good SSD. Still at about $800.

A little more budget room would really help out.
