I'm not really technically savvy with pc's but i was thinking of pulling the trigger on this pc, are the specs worth the price for this pc?

Basically looking for a prebuilt pc with a price range between $600 - $1k that can play current games at least on high- ultra settings, any suggestions would help immensely. Thanks.

How do you feel about building one yourself or know anyone that can build one with you? You can do so much better with that price range.

I don't know the first thing about building pc's or know anyone who can do it for me so i think that option is pretty much out of the question :(

Hey bro listen. Building a PC is really easy. What you should do is find someone who knows how to do it, pick out your components and yeah! It'll be cheaper, and probably faster than the one you have picked out.

(By the way, don't go with an AMD processor when you have $640 to spend!)

Actually I just saw that you have a budget of $1k. Here's something you can build. It doesn't have crossfire or a sound card, but it overclocks well, and it will run games at 1080p on Ultra.

I'm only interested in a pre built pc anything that needs assembling is not my cup of tea. Maybe down the road i might build one, i've always wanted to build a pc from scratch but now is not the time. So any suggestions of any good pre built pc's would be great, also i would like to add that i play on 1280x1024 resolution on all of my games, no interest in playing anything higher than that, basically high to ultra settings on said resolution would be fine with me.
