  1. Yeah, the 520 is not that good for gaming. How well do you feel about building your own? You could do so much better. What kind of budget are you looking at?
  2. I have never built my own system and feel strongly that I would end up messing up a compont or software, I am very nervous about risking parts as they can be costly. I am looking at around $650 budget.
  3. Do you need a monitor too?
  4. You can build a gaming computer for $650, but you can't get one from Cyberpower for that much. :(
  5. The computer specs I posted in first post was FROM cyberpowerPC and is priced at $650. I do not need a monitor I need only the system.
  6. This would be good for $650.

  8. @ cball1311 GG thats as good as it gets though you might be able to plus minus a couple dollars here and there.
  9. Look, for gaming you want at least a GTX 650 Ti from Nvidia or a 7770 from AMD.

    I understand, I'm saying that it won't game, but that if you spend that $650 somewhere that's not on a rebuilt you can build a gaming computer. A couple folks have linked some good builds, I'd recommend going with something like that. And if you're nervous about putting together a PC on your own, don't be. They're about as hard as these to put together:

    I'm not trying to be condescending, but rather encouraging. :D
