Gaming Computer for 800 or less. Tags: New Build Overclocking Gaming Computer Systems Last response: December 7, 2012 2:52 AM in Systems Share nathinu1 December 6, 2012 8:44:22 PM Looking for a gaming computer to play Skyrim, Borderlands 2, and League of Legends on high/ultra settings. I do not play to overclock at the moment (at least hope to not have to) - but future overclocking potential would be nice for when needed. Just looking for the Computer - don't need monitor Preferred Websites - Newegg, NCIX, Tomshardware. I do have a Microcenter near me so I plan to buy the CPU/MoBo there for lower cost on CPU, and 40$ off Mobo Preferably the Chassis has a Window panel. (Will need to include windows 7 in the budget) since I do not have a copy of it. Thanks in advance.

Also, since your budget allows it, i would swap the video card for a 7870, and also the power supply (antec is a decent brand, but would recommend at least 550w). | Report abuse nathinu1 December 7, 2012 12:41:35 AM Ty for suggestion - any other ideas ?
