Best Gaming PC

Posts: 158
As the topic states, I'm looking for a new PC. I have a macbook, but as we all know its not the best for gaming... So i would like some help finding a gnarly gaming PC, mac or windows.

Any suggestions of makers or if you have links to builds?

Under $3K

Looking for a desktop. no monitor, mouse or keyboard. just the "tower".

Do you want desktop or laptop? If you go with desktop I recommend building your own.

Everything including OS, monitor, mouse, keyboard? Or you got the basic stuff?

Chassis Model: Cooler Master 942 HAF X
Processor: Intel Core i7 2600K 3.40GHz
Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 Deluxe (Intel P67 Chipset) (New & Improved B3 Revision Without SATA 3G Issue)
System Memory: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Digital Storm Certified Performance Series
Power Supply: 1050W Corsair Pro Silver 1050HX (Dual/Triple/Quad SLI Compatible)
Hard Drive Set 1: (120GB Solid State Intel 320 Series)
Hard Drive Set 2: 1x (1TB Western Digital Caviar (7200 RPM) (64MB Cache) (Model: Black Edition)
Optical Drive 1: LG Blu-Ray (Burn and Play Blu-Ray Discs)
Video Card(s): Nvidia GTX 590 Classified (EVGA version)
Windows OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-Bit Edition)

That should cost quite a bit under 3000 and be a killer computer

For desktop, go to newegg.com and buy the parts to build your own. I would go ATI/AMD to save money.

He is willing to spend almost 3000 dollars, it sounds like he is looking for performance more than bargains.

1000 dollar rig nowadays will last you FOREVER omg maybe up the budget to 1300 if you want a video card that you wont have to replace for two-three years

Dude. AMD/ATI is good. I guess if you are spending your grandpa's money, sure go Intel/Nvidia.

Hahaha, hey granny gimmie money so I cna build a beast gaming rig. Yeah ati/amd is good I am not saying they suck, but if you want best performance for now intel/nvidia is the way to go. You never know bulldozer might surpass intel and ati/amd next card may surpass nvidia.

you dont have to go amd/ati or intel/nvidia ( common misconception that they should be paired)

i prefer AMD processors due to the fact that you cant beat the performance for the price

and i love nvidia graphics cards because i like the results i get

Yeah you don't have to pair them but generally when one goes intel/nvidia they have more money to blow and they are the more expensive pair and performance best atm while the people who go ati/amd are generally people who are on a tighter budget who are trying to get best bang for their buck.

It is all preference though I spose
