Building A New Rig

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have been using my current computer for over a year and I'm not very satisfied with my current performance in games. I was looking into getting a new one but I'm not very good with computers. I would like to know what configuration would give me the best performance at around a $1400 budget. I was looking at parts but I'm really unsure. I went on IBuyPower on Walmart's website and looked at prices for different parts. Down below I'll list the parts I looked at with the overall price and my current setup. The parts I picked out where only a rough estimate on what I would like to get. All I care about is getting the best possible performance in games. I don't mind a smaller HD or getting rid of the Blue-ray drive. If overclocking would help I wouldn't be opposed to that either. I was thinking an Nvidia card with an Intel possessor would give me the best performance but let me know if you disagree. If any of you guys are knowledgeable in this field I would really appreciate any help.

That system will play pretty much any game you will be able to throw at it.
