My computer was only $800 and it also kicks ass. What's your point? Spending $2000 is completely unnecessary unless you want to get THE best performance. And if you want to buy a Mac which is pointless in itself, but I'm not gonna start that argument.

Dell Studio XPS 8100 or any of the XPS Series. In 2010 when I bought mine, I pay 1400 for it but now they are down to about 800 to 900. But I'm basically upgrading it and changing the whole thing.


I'm going to school for Electronics and Computers so Im pretty sure I'd know if you know what I mean.


Most of you guys know this and don't want to do this, but Build your own. I mean putting the computer together itself isn't all that hard. But if you know what components you want then you are golden. '

I just want to say that pretty much nobody who doesn't know about computers is going to do this. Reason being they're buying hundreds of dollars worth of extremely valuable components. They're not going to risk messing it up. Computer literate people may say it's easy, but of course they say it's easy. Building a computer sounds complicated as shit, and with the amount of money poured into it, nobody with common sense is going to assume it's easy. Maybe it is as easy as putting together a computer chair or an electric oscillating fan. Still, not going to risk it, what with it being so expensive, based on the word of people who aren't physically present should you need help.

I'm not saying building your own computer isn't a sensible option. For all I know, it's as simple as clicking a couple parts into labeled slots. But most people who don't know about computers aren't going to believe it'll be easy, and they probably won't be persuaded by a computer literate person telling them it is.

That's really all there is to it. Sticking things and plugs into their labeled slots.

Buy the one I posted. It's 10 euros more than the more expensive one of the two, better specs, and it's already prebuilt so you won't have to worry about messing something up.

This. It really isn't significantly more expensive, and chances are it'll work out better than some Dell computer. It's as simple as picking from the two you listed, just better.

Me, Mexican and Terrorops all bought PC's from cyberpower within the last 3 months and they are amazing. I can run any game on the highest settings with no problems. I suggest you custom build yours though instead of getting a preset one. That way you can build it the way you want and possibly save money. I definitely recommend using cyberpower.

I of course made note of the fact that I didn't know what I was doing the whole time.

So I guess this will be a test of the hypothesis "Is building a gaming PC so easy a newcomer could do it?".

I've heard bad things about AMD processors so get an i3 or i5, he doesn't need the OC (he certainly doesn't want to pay for it if he wants to OC), anti-vibration fan mounts and liquid cooling aren't needed, I hear the corsair vengeance 8gb is better (RAM), and you didn't select the free upgrade to an AMD 7770.

Also might want to look for reviews on the power supply
