The i3 is a decent CPU, but for the latest games you would be better off paying the extra for an i5 750 or if you like AMD, the Phenom 955. Both are quad-cores and achieve about the same benchmark results.

As for graphics cards it might be better excluding them and waiting a little while, especially if you are wanting an ATI. The prices have dropped significantly in the last week and may continue to do so to try and combat nVidia's new GTX 460.

Hope this helps!

Prices are always falling as new things get released. There is never a right time to buy anything, so holding off waiting for something to get reduced in price is probably a never ending wait.

That is so stupidly overpriced it's untrue. Build your own.


Its too complicated, i wouldn't know what goes where ect.

Everything only fits in one place, takes like an hour to do.


But i don't know what to get either,,, can anyone come up with a £400-450 list.

Thanks, but i don't know what parts to get and what to get to be able to run the latest games.

Oh, these guys again.

To put it into perspective, Dell do laptops with pretty much the same spec as that for pretty much the same price. Laptops. That's how bad Cyber Power Systems are. Did you read about them in something like Custom PC, by any chance?

Anyway, yeah, build your own. It's easy, and you can get something wya more powerful than otherwise. Consult Toms Hardware Guide to see what bits perform better than what other bits, and keep this golden rule firmly in mind: If it says "Gamer" on the box, it's hideously overpriced and you should buy something else.

Suggesting someone to build their own when they have no idea is pretty damn stupid.

What happens if something arrives dead etc, unless he knows someone who knows their stuff, he is better off buying it pre built.

But it's so easy to do. Sure, he might not no how to do it now, but it's such an easy process that anyone can figure it out.

When I built mine I had dead RAM, my mobo was giving me PSU and RAM errors, if I didn't have a mate that took it to his house to check which one was wrong, I would of had to send both back, and I've been on computers all my life.

Sure, most people have no problems, but what "if" is the thing.

How does anyone do it then? Everyone has to do it for a first time at some point.

Anyway, I'll make you a list with links and post it here later.


Thankyou, iv'e been working hard and following this site

http://www.build-gaming-computers.com/gaming-desktop-computer.html

Aria Asgard

This doesn't look bad. I kind of priced it up, but err... It looks to be about £50 or so more expensive than buying the parts and doing it yourself lol, I wouldn't do all that £50 hehe.
#14
Thanks will this be able to play games like MW2?

I've edited it and changed a few things, but yes that will run MW2 perfectly at 1920*1080 (that none of the consoles can do).

I think it is fair to say for a gaming machine you may as well go AMD, more bang for the buck. Also baring in mind that this guy probably won't know how to overclock and Intel processors are pretty much king of the hill when overclocked, when they are at stock.. Too close to call with AMD.

Looking at what you listed though and the Aria system, better case on Aria, more powerful PSU, Quad core vs Dual, not exactly great improvements for a gaming rig though. The PSU is probably overkill in the Aria system and Quad vs Dual in gaming is sort of a touchy subject lol.

I would go with the Aria system though, I still think it looks a bargain at that super special price. Plus they have a pretty good rep when it comes to their customer service.
#17
For £26, you may as well.
#18
It must be getting pretty close to that Aria price now. How can you argue with a £50 build cost. Most places won't do it for less a ton-fifty. 1 year warranty with Aria too, on-top of what comes from the manufacturers for all the hardware, the building cost, the burn-in and overall time spent on the system. £50 is nothing, whoever is doing that must be getting paid less than minimum wage lol
#19
It is a super special item at £587.49 - Add on the cost of the case and a the bigger PSU and its about £50. The Aria sysem doesn't have Windows either.

If you need help building it PM me to get my msn or something (I'll dismantle my PC and build it along side you if needed (with a webcam watching mine).

Phear I already changed it to AMD.

Anyone recon he's worth the extra £26 to quad core, that's the only thing I'm not sure about.

Thanks for your help man, i really appreciated it. iv'e gone with your list and the quad core CPU. baring in mind my birthday is 10th of august so i will be ordering it soon.. so can you pm your msn i need to ask any questions?

Ebuyer have things like cathode tubes for like £3 and they light up the whole case with light if you want something like that look in the case mods (or case lighting it might be), section, they install with just one connector slotting one and can make your PC look cool. Also I'd probably get a 120mm fan to add to the back of the case. All this isn't needed straight off and is super easy to add whenever you like. PMed you my email address aswell.


I shall have a look, thanks

Hey guys, why don't people build their own space shuttles? It's dead easy and should only take a day or so and anyone can do it.

Indeed, sometimes convenience is greater than saving a few quid. Alas, the 'build it yourself LOL' brigade are a tad narrow minded and can't see the bigger picture.
#24
dcx_badass, do i need to buy a CPU Cooler Fan separately?

Is this good? http://www.ebuyer.com/product/176157

AND :D.

Can this run MW2 on max with the quad core processor?
