I hope I put this on the correct part of the forum.
First of all I am asking for some honest advice please, but please nothing over the top cruel etc.
I have played PC games for some time now, however my AMD laptop of a Dual Core CPU 1.8 Ghz, 4Gb Ram, 250 Gb Hard Drive can not handle anything these days and I thought instead of getting a new Console (got Xbox 360 already), I would get a Gaming PC.
Because I have never built a PC before I thought of buying a PC now and upgrade it in the future in areas that would need upgrading as I see fit.
I have found two PC's on Ebuyer.com that I like the look off.
- - Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz
- - 8GB RAM + 1TB HDD
- - DVD Writer
- - NVIDIA GTX 660
- - Windows 8 64bit
- - £587.36
- - Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz
- - 8GB RAM + 2TB HDD + DVDRW
- - NVIDIA GTX 660
- - Windows 8.1 64-bit
Try http://www.palicomp.co.uk/ for a custom build if you buy the parts separate (but make sure they are compatible) you could find a local shop that shouldn't cost too much to build it for you check via phone first. However building it yourself can be fun.
Anyway if your on a budget AMD's FX processors range are more than capable and you would be better with windows 7 ultimate OEM its only £70 atm
Windows 8 is'int the greatest. Also that distributor took its sweet ass time delivering. But it was over Christmas and when i addressed it when they opened for January they sent it as next day delivery.
Hope this helps you with your decision
Thank you, I shall definitely look into that.
Is that a good site too use ?
I was told by multiple people that windows 8 is better for the gaming operating system than windows 7 ?
Just get Windows 8, it'll make your next OS upgrade very cheap. May as well keep up to date with OSs unless you see a real reason to using another. Honestly, i'd recommend building a PC. It is VERY simple, i taught myself the basics at 11. If you are in a real panic with it, then you can probably find a family friend to help out. A basic build can take 1 hour if you aren't as anal about how it looks as I am.
Also - 2Tb+ is the way to go. If you are getting into gaming, you will burn through 1Tb
logan made a biuld a pc video a while ago but everthing is still relavent
you get way better parts if you custom build it, and you will learn how to fix it too
