Is this a good AMD Gaming Desktop to buy? - Page 2

post #11 of 37
Yeah sure man, not a problem.
Its your choice at the end of the day, if you think that deal will suit your needs then by all means go for it.
Building your own rig might seem terrifying but to be honest, as long as you take your time and run it step by step its pretty straight forward.
In this day and age its very possible to build a decent rig for not very much money and its pretty satisfying too.
Have a think and let me know, im more than happy to help ya, i can write you up some step by steps and talk you through if you decide to go down the self build road.
Give me a rough budget of what you want to spend and i'll have a scout online and find you some options for a build.

Hope this helps

That's a really good deal for someone who doesn't want/know how to build their own machine. Disregard my SSD and it's faster than mine.

Hell no, I didn't even look at the link because I saw "Walmart" in the link. As soon as you walk out of the store with the PC, there is no returning it, you can even open the damn box and theres a brick inside, Walmart will tell you to take it up with the manufacturer.

Also, as I've always said: lol @ buying PCs at Walmart.
If you're going to by a PC that you're not going to BYOC, at least stick with Cyberpowerinc.

And building you own PC is not that hard really. There are thousands of guides on the interbutts on how to build one.

Cyberpower is a total rip-off. This machine would cost $2000 there easy.

If you want to have a go at building your own, I'll help you via MSN/Facebook or whatever, give you step by step instructions.

I'm pretty sure most of the guys here will help out too! I'd try your first build, and see how it goes, if you want any help picking components etc... I'd be more than happy to help!

Let me know if you want, otherwise, just bite the bullet and buy it, yeah you can get better for the money, but seriously, if you're not willing to build, that's the only other option you have, unless someone kind enough on OCN in your location will build one for you...

Good luck, and give me a shout if you want some help if you do so decide to build one.

Yeah but they're not as bad as iBuypower. I've had bad experiences with both, but when I had to do a mass order for work, Cyberpower came through for me nicely and they did not skimp at all on support/RMAs/warranties/etc.

When I built a system for my friend to use as a CS server from iBuyPower they half ass built it. No cable management, They didn't even mount the PSU in the case the right way, not to mention after 3 months of using it, I found they couldn't even put thermal paste on properly.

I would like something similar to the Walmart PC, perhaps better quality parts. Liquid cooling, great fans...Around $1000.00. I would also, perhaps like the option of not getting a SUPER great graphics card right now, and upgrading later when newer games come out and it's TRULY needed. Again, just an an option.

I plan on playing like Starcraft II, Sims 3, GTA IV...I also own a PS3 so I don't do all my gaming on here. I know graphics look better on a PC, and if I could get it, cool, but I'm really the heart & soul of the game so they don't mean THAT much to me. I want to be able to buy the PC only games like SCII and so forth...I also use this for burning cds of mine into FLAC files. So I'm not doing huge office tasks on here or anything, just home use.

The PC I have now, a HPE-400f PC, I bought at Walmart for $750. I know, a ripoff (well, it did come with 8 gigs of ram), but I was in a rush with limited library use so...
Anyway, the package came within 2 days and was in great condition. They say you have 14 days to return it but I didn't have to...I agree, though, they probably stink for that kind of stuff.

What games are you going to play? The 5770 video card is fine, but if you're going to play some more demanding games out there, I would really vouch for the 6950.
Ummm....
