Build me a $1,500 Computer.

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
For my graduation present, my parents are allowing me to use ~$1,500 to build a computer for college which I will primarily be gaming on. Please build me the best possible computer for this price that utilizes a 24" monitor. thumb.gif

Thanks OCN!biggrin.gif

are you near a microcenter?
are you stateside or where
do you want to order from one place or where ever gives you the best price?

and would a smaller pc be better since your going to college? (smaller for say living in a dorm?)

Don't buy from a store tax is a killer
tigerdirect has no tax and cheap shipping

and tiger direct is one of the worst pc parts places ever
microcenter sometimes has great deals that even with tax figured in is still a great deal

I've got an apartment with my best friend for college so size won't be a problem!
I'm hoping to order all the parts from 1 place.
