You can custom build your own here if you don't want to go out and find the specific parts yourself, I got a good deal after doing some research, there are also coupons you can find on the internet that help as well.

Specs in those pics don't tell jack shit, but I'd go with the Asus because AFAIK they're one of the most reliable, and HP one of the worst quality manufactorers. This info is based on laptops though, so might be different for their towers.

Yea im in the same boat. Computer died in a basement flood and now I need a new one. I want one that one break my wallet but can also run high end games. I dont know how to build a computer nor do I want to know. Just point me to something I can buy. Im cool with buying graphics cards as long as they are cheap, good, and easy to install.

Lol.

This is where I bought mine: http://www.ibuypower.com/lobby.aspx

I'm sure there's at least like three people who know all about computers and will shit down my throat as soon as they see that site. But I bought my computer there and several months later I'm still satisfied. Not just satisfied even, I'm pretty glad I bought a good PC. I've always disliked the whole PC culture of "Consoles suck, PCs are the best", but really, they have a point. Even if you don't like using a keyboard and mouse, you can just plug an Xbox controller directly into a USB port and play with that (works with Skyrim, New Vegas, Overlord. Doesn't even need to set up).

I guess it's just easier for me 'cause I don't have to share my PC and I don't have to turn it off either. Anyway, I use one of the AMD Desktops from that site. Not one of the preset ones though, I didn't "build" it, but it let me choose what components I wanted, IE what graphics card, what processor, what amount of RAM, etc..

I'm not sure how good my computer is, but I can play Skyrim with all settings on maximum and turn on god mode and just rapid-fire Fus-Ro-Dah entire town-fulls of folks into corners. So it must be pretty decent.

Post  Cloakey100 on 2nd September 2012, 9:04 am

it seems you guys know your stuff so tell me this............

could i run games on this laptop?

ill post the overview and pic:

Product overview

The Samsung NP300E7A-A08UK is the ideal machine for those who want to see the bigger picture, thanks to its 17.3" screen. This makes viewing content a pleasure - whether you're watching from the DVD drive (which can also burn discs), via external media via USB connection, or from the web via the built-in Wi-Fi connection.

The machine can also multitask - it has an Intel Pentium B950 processor with 6GB of RAM, plus a 750GB hard drive, while gamers will enjoy the Intel HD Graphics 3000 card. The case of the machine has been finished in a robust Samsung Duracase casing with a special scratch-resistant and anti-fingerprint surface, which will keep the notebook looking stylish for longer.

There's a built-in webcam, microphone and speakers, Bluetooth, while the operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). A host of pre-loaded software comes with the machine.



i can run minecraft but then i thought id try runescape and the thing couldnt handle it is this bad?

@Cloakey: The processor is shit, so no high end or new games for you pal. Minecraft is actually pretty processor intensive so I wouldn't be surprised if you can't run it on full settings. Runescape though, if you can't run it it's probably because of flash or java, or the lack of one.

I believe Skyrim may be much more optimized and may run a lot better then Arma 2, I would say yes to Skyrim and definitely if you download mods that can improve performance.

This site may also tell you a bit more.

Jesus this website is so unreliable. I've said it before and I'll say it again.
I used it to see if I can run BF3 and it said I can't. Well I can run it on ULTRA with 55 FPS stable.

Please don't. Go to http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/ or http://www.ibuypower.com/lobby.aspx and pick one from there that's in your price range. These are custom computers that are prebuilt and more than likely will have better specs than those ASUS or HP ones.

Dude, you can get a cheap gaming pc. Itll be good at medium setting for maybe a year, and then your gonna have to replace just about everything in the comp to keep up and youll end up spending more money than if you got a good one originally.

I dont know how you expect to game on a cheap computer.

According to this site: http://www.dollars2pounds.com/

The first computer you listed is about 1048 US Dollars (659.99 pounds).
The second you listed (the cheaper one) is around 873 US Dollars (549.99 pounds).
The one Jakekola listed costs 889 Dollars (560 pounds).

It's literally 16 Dollars, or 10 pounds more.

Just get a good PC. I spent 1100 Dollars on mine, an entire summer's-worth of savings, and I don't regret it one bit.

I would suggest going for a completely custom built computer if you have any local computer stores nearby that do that. You can completely avoid proprietary equipment that way and a custom computer is as the name implies VERY flexible in its hardware.

In regards to PC components, the more expensive one is usually the better one.

In regards to anything ever, that's a stupid statement.

First off, define "better". Better what? Performance? Reliability? Quality? A $900 craphics card is gonna be better than a $120 one in all aspects, but the $120 can still be a better pick. The price is set by the manufactorer and the distributor, and since everything isn't manufactored and distributed by the same companies the prices can vary greatly regardless of how "good" the hardware is. This goes even further when buying a pre-built computer, a hundred dollars here or there is no guarantee of "being better". Macs are a prime example, their cost is like twice the one of any other PC with same quality and performance components...

Explain my computer which kicks virtual ass for only $800. Most people spend anywhere from $1000-$2000 on their computers.
