Hi, I am looking to build my first gaming PC, my budget is 800 dollars, and I don't need a monitor or an operating system. Can you suggest any ideas for a build that would be able to run skyrim, borderlands 2, or farcry 3 on high of possible?
Unfortunately, this deal only applies in store, it sucks, but the reason they sell it for so cheap is to get you to come in so their salesmen can try and sell you more stuff. But if you just ignore all their comments and suggestions, you'd be fine.
As for an aftermarket heatsink, if you think that you might get into overclocking your CPU, you might as well pick up a CM Hyper 212+ Evo considering how cheap it is. If you think you'd rather not get into overclocking, the stock heatsink does it's job very well.
