    Cool New Computer

    Thinking of buying a new computer just for gaming sense I got a raise at work . Maybe I can get some help from people that already have one or just know everything about computers. Thinking of getting the DIY computer from Newegg.com.

    1) Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

    2) Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

    Or should I just say fuck it and get this one. Already built.
    Acer AG3-605-UR1A Desktop PC Intel Core i7 4770 (3.40GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB 7200RPM SATA3 Hard Drive
    24GB SSD Drive HDD Windows 8.1 - Newegg.com


    Or even you can make a list of parts and I can make my own kit and build it.

    Thanks again!!

    About a $1000, hopefully less but I can deal with it.

    Re: New Computer

    I can get my hands on windows 7 from my dad. They have them lying around at his work. As for my computer right now, its a 2 year old dell laptop with at the time one of the better graphics card. This would be my first true gaming computer.
    Dell Inspiron 17 with Windows 7 64 bit Intel core i7
    Has a Nvidia GeForce GT 525M and 8 GB ram. Like I said, nothing special. Its runs BF4 on medium settings just fine.

    $1000 is a good enough budget to get you up into the high/ultra settings at 1080p 60hz.
