I thought about doing it as I had it with my laptop, where I can surf the net on sofa, but then plug it to a monitor for gaming. That was great, but a gaming worthy laptop is way to expensive compared to a desktop counterpart (and I could buy a very cheap laptop later).
I know here are a couple of threads with the same topic, but most are older, I'll browse them anyway later.
Ok, it would be best if I'd need to spend about 800€, but I guess I won't get far with that budget, so I would be ready to raise it up to 1000€, but not more. That's why I need only the most necessary. Things like the CPU and graphic card need to be very good, other parts, like the case, can be cheap.
"Hawt deals" that apply to NA are probably no use for me, so I'd need hardware suggestions and buy the stuff in my area, or the internet.
I am totally clueless (will do research on my own, but for now I just make this thread), so what are the most necessary components that I need? And of course I
What would be the best way? To go to a dealer and let him build the rig for me, plus installing all the software (and making me a CD/DVD with the software for the hardware)? But the dealer will ask money for the service and Amazon often sells stuff cheaper than any store (I quit shopping in stores long ago because of this, same stuff, but cheaper at Amazon).
And I kind of would prefer to order online and have Amazon shipping the stuff to me, instead of to go to a dealer (and pay more at the end). Of course, the problem is that I'd need to assemble it on my own, but I upgraded my old PC often enough (with HD's, RAM and cards), and also upgraded my laptop from Vista to Win7 by making a software CD to install the software for the hardware components, so I think I can handle this (with your help ).
So, would you suggest ordering online and building by myself is the way to go with my limited budget? And is it realistic to expect to get a really good gaming rig, that serves me for about three years, for 800€ (1000€ if really necessary)?
Ok, what do I need?
- Case (preferably very silent fan)
- Graphic Card
- Sound Card
- CD/DVD Drive
- USB (or does it come build in with the case?)
