New gaming desktop

I would like to buy a new prebuilt gaming desktop that can play mid-high level games for 800-1100 dollars is it possible and what would be a good choice if it is.
Thanks

  1. I'm getting one.

    CORE 2 DUO E8400 3.0 Ghz
    Asus P5N-D MAINBOARD
    PALIT 896MB GTX275
    4GB CORSAIR XMS2 DDR2 800
    640GB HARD DISK
    SOUNDBLASTER AUDIGY SE
    ANTEC 900 GAMING CASING
    700W PSU
    SUPER QUIET 22dBA TRIPLE COPPER HEATPIPE CPU COOLER


    rest of the standard stuff for around £800. You could probably use onboard sound, get a smaller PSU and knock off about £50 easily. GTX260 core 216 will also save you some cash while still giving exceptional power. Not exactly sure how much that translates to in dollars, but I think something similar to what I'm planning to get should fit your budget.

    i am buying a Dell monitor separately. it does a huge 2048x1152 resolution, so my rig is specced to perform well in games on that resolution. If you are using a smaller monitor you could really save a lot on teh card by going for a GTS 250 or a 9800 GT or even a Radeon 4870 or something.
  2. Oh. Just noticed you are going to buy from dell. I think its a lot better to buy from some other not-so-popular retailers. You'll get FAR more bang for the buck. Dell is very very overpriced for stuff like this. when you want to squeeze the last ounce of performance for the quid... or in your case, buck.

    $1100 will probably get you a great gaming PC. but at Dell it will probably get you a very mediocre one.
  3. Actually, I do not care which brand it is, and I'm not sure why its under dell :)
    However, I was looking at this:
    http://www.amazon.com/Gateway-FX6800-01e-Desktop-PC/dp/B001O6C3CW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1245605657&sr=8-1

    How well do you think that would do gaming wise? would it be able to keep up with all the latest games do you think?
  4. NO. Never trust a Gateway if you want gaming!
