Some people said that the new AMD FX has so many problem and many said that I should go with the previous A series. This is my first time building a desktop and I need you professional on helping me on this. I'm on tight budget as I'm a college student. I don't need OC, not familiar with liquid cooling and it doesn't matter if its intel or AMD and I need the OS install in this. Also, I'm not familiar to build it myself. So If anyone could link me some website similar to cyberpowerpc, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks guys and sorry for being such a newbie on this.
If is less than 800 is also great

Building it heres the pros and cons

Pro's

- After done building and it boots up you feel proud to say "I built that"

- Better hardware for the money

Cons

- Hard to replace a broken piece

- Worry about dead parts

- Have a chance to ruin the computer if not built right

- Hassle of building it and putting it together (Might damage parts)


Buying Pros and Cons

Pros

- Easy purchase wait and play

- No worries, if it doesn't work return it!

- No work required

- People that know how to build it are building it.

Cons

- Mostly ripped off, but paying for the time to put it together

- Worse hardware for you're money

- Customer Service might suck


I think you should buy you're own computer don't build it, you're a college student and if you buy one you can play games without any haggle or worry you did something wrong! Here's some computers I came up with that fit you're price range!

(These computers come with Radeon 7850's that will play BF3 On Ultra at 60fps)

Don't buy from CyberPower. They are a hunk of crap. If worst comes to worst, NCIX is the best place for buying customized pre-builts. But please, don't buy a prebuilt. The hardware is terrible for the price and it is, without a doubt, not a very nice experience just getting a computer. Building a computer is very much a fun thing, not a chore. If you know what you're doing, with the help of a few videos online, you can do it easily. Returning is very simple, especially if you do instore pickup. I return random things all the time, such as maybe I don't need the part anymore, or it just doesn't work the way I want it too.
