Tags: Gaming Computers AMD Build Cyberpower Systems Last response: June 26, 2013 6:37 PM in Systems Share thejeffenat0r June 25, 2013 7:00:20 PM Well I was going to buy a gaming computer that was already built (because I don't know how to build one ) and I was thinking about buying this one: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/saved/1F7LRK I added and upgraded some of the parts that were supposed to come with it originally. If the link doesn't work then here are the specs written out: CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.50 GHz Six-Core AM3+ CPU 6MB L2 Cache & Turbo Core Technology Cooling Fan: Cooler Master Seidon 120M Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator (Single Standard 120MM Fan) Motherboard: * [CrossFireX] GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AMD 970 Chipset Socket AM3+ ATX Mainboard w/ Touch Bios, Ultra Durable 2, On/Off Charge, 7.1 Audio, GbLAN, 2 Gen2 PCIe X16, 3 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI Memory: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (Corsair or Major Brand) Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 7750 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card (Major Brand Powered by AMD) Hard Drive: 500GB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Drive) Power Supply Upgrade: 350 Watts - Antec Basiq BP350 Power Supply My price range is probably around $560-650, maybe $700 if it includes the shipping and handling cost. :3 Thanks for the help PS. I want to be able to play games like GTA 4, Battlefield 3, etc on Ultra or something (I want it to look really good) Don't bump posts. - G More about : good build gaming Reply to thejeffenat0r Outlander_04 a b 4 Gaming a b À AMD June 25, 2013 7:08:42 PM Its important to know the resolution of your monitor , but as an indicator that set up will play those games on low details at 1080p Its unusual to use 4 x2 gig of RAM . 2 x4 gig is a better But where the system falls down if the Radeon 7750 graphics card which just does not have the muscle , and the very low wattage power supply that would limit graphics card upgrades If you are willing to build yourself you can do much better Reply to Outlander_04 thejeffenat0r June 25, 2013 7:14:17 PM I'm not sure what the resolution would be. Do you recommend any monitors? EDIT: Changed it to 4GB x2 for the memory Reply to thejeffenat0r Related resources Help me build a very good budget gaming PC? $400 - Forum Need a good budget gaming PC build. - Forum Will This Be A Good Gaming PC Build? - Forum Gaming/Recording/Editing PC build.
