Default Megazell - Build My New PC

Advertisement

Well, I figured, that since you're the expert I'd also open up a thread to show where and how to make a cheep PC...

Mainly because my brothers girlfriend just wrecked mine, and it'd cost $290 to fix...

if you can build me a good PC with like 4-6g's of ram, and 250+ Hard Drive. that's under $400, that'd be awesome.


http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/A..._Configurator/

Is what I found. if you can make that or tell me what i need to make that great for gaming. That'd be cool / if you know if Cyberpower is safe.

Looks like you're good without me.

Do you have any computer shows in your area?

I would use any http://www.udk.com/ game.

On my list are quite a few.

http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/...d.php?t=244468

Like Prometheus

I would also bench mark it by using a free version of http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks.../introduction/

-------------------------------------------

Computer Shows are the best place to get the best deals. I would always check your tech before you leave though because some vendors have not actual store.

Recently I spent under $100 and left with over $800 of stuff had I bought it online or standard retail
