Default "AMD Zen"- $800-1000 on computer

I would like to buy a computer around this price range. I don't have anything and need to start from scratch. I'm a fan of doom so I would like to have a computer that could run doom 3. I would appreciate it if some of you guys could lend me some knowledge on packages or computers in this range.

AMD ZEN- I read some of your other posts, you helped some other guys out I would appreciate your advice.

go with a system like mine, cept with a pci E mobo and 6600GT gfx card
i spent some money on things that dont even matter so my system cost about 650 after shipping, and then 200 extra to get some dumbass to help a small bit, anyways u can prolly get evthing for rite around a thousand, the cpu and mobo should be around 400 or 500, the vid card is about 200, the sound card, about 100, the ram i think is 150, then u have hdd, and case, and BOOM u can have fun

AMD Zen is good with hardware, but we all pretty much know our stuff. Nothing against you Amd! Just pointing something out.

This depends.. Do you need a monitor or not? That can really change around the whole system.

However, I reccomend:

AMD Athalon 3200, 1 gig corsair ram, 128mb ATI Radeon 9600+ or 9800+, then the rest is up to you.

sry to "rag" on u man, but wehnever someone needs help gettin comp parts together, most the time they state the price range, and if u read the first thread it says 800-1000, and half thetime these threads do have the price range in the first post, but u ALWAYS ASK what is the price range first of all? READ!
