Help purchasing prebuilt gaming PC Tags: Prebuilt Systems Last response: January 26, 2013 12:11 AM in Systems Share RangerManCV61 January 24, 2013 5:49:49 PM Hello, I am looking to purchase a new PC to run Microsoft FSX somewhat efficiently, plus Office and basic programs. A budget of $800 is the aim. So far, research has led me to these specs, intel Core i-7 2700? Nvidia, which one? Coolant fan? Memory CPU & GPU? Monitor desired is the following ASUS VS239H-P 23-Inch Full-HD LED IPS Monitor Dell, Alienware, Cyberpower? If I go with a Cyberpower, easy to upgrade from i-5 to an i-7? Also aware of FSX limitations between the two. I really appreciate all input.
