$700-800 Gaming PC

Hey guys,

I need a new desktop and I can only spend around $700 dollars.

I need everything but the output devices and a copy of an OS.

I am going to use it for gaming only. Also, I would highly appreciate it if it were from NewEgg.

    It can play any game at high settings, you can change the gpu for an amd one if you like, like this one : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/his-video-card-h787q2g2m
    If you can go over 700$ mark but still less than 800$ get the 660 ti from asus, really a good card : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx660tidc2o2gd5
  2. I updated my budget from $700 to $800 now

    From that either a 660 ti or 7950, depending on your preferences from the brands.
    In my opinion i think it's best the 660 ti :

    NCIX offers free shipping with 100$ in the cart, the hdd and ram checks 100$.
  5. Thank you guys. I have one more question: What about cooling? Will I have to buy some fans also?

    And also, would this case fit work instead of the Corsair?

  6. The stock cooler that comes with the cpu is fine, the fans are optional, not necessary.
