I wanted to gift my brother with a Gaming PC. It should be no more than 1200$. Thanks in advance!
His favorite game is GTA IV EFLC and he plays a lot of Multiplayer. He always wanted to play it in highest settings possible which was not possible in his old PC ( LOL! I SHOULD HAVE SLAPPED HIM FOR INSTALLING GTA IV EFLC IN HIS OLD PC IN THE FIRST CASE AND NOW ITS DESTROYED - IT SPORTS A INTEL PENTIUM DUAL CORE E5200 CPU AND A 9500 GT, WENT UP IN SMOKE AFTER HE KICKED IT FOR SHOWING A BSOD AFTER INTENSE MULTIPLAYER )
