Default Help

I want to buy a new pc , but i'm not really sure of what to buy. I want a smooth running desktop that will be able to play the new sims 3 smoothly and be update able, and i have a budget of 500 dollars. I already have a aftermarket hard drive that i can install, and if need be, i'm willing to buy a new video card if needed.

can anyone make suggestions? i don't want to be screwed over, lol

Watch your language. Few questions first.

Where do you live in the world?
What size monitor do you use?
Do you (want to) overclock?
Do you need a monitor?

overclocking is changing the default settings on your hardware to have it perform better - it voids the warranty though.... but its like free money (u get better hardware than u paid for)

so im guessing you won't be overclocking....

if you want to have a good gaming pc and stay under that budget you probably dont want to buy a new monitor....

ur probably looking at something like this, though it doesent come with keyboard, mouse, or speakers (this will run you like 40-60...)

Ok now to answer your question.
1)Your Going for a Asus/Msi/Dell Build
*Website Links*
www.dell.com (Dell)
www.newegg.com (Msi)
www.Asus.com (For The Asus)

These MIGHT not work if you live outside the US/Australia.
So..
www.oo.com (Ships to UK/Europe)
www.newegg.com (sometimes Ships to World-Wide)
www.ebay.com (Sometimes ships to World-Wide)

Overclocking can be done on ALL of the Asus/Msi/Dell Desktops.

Moniters come with them

and they are mostly under $900.00 (Depends where you live again)

UK=$300-400.00
USA=$400-500.00
Europe=$550-600.00

It all Dpends on where you Live.

Also MOST of them will have Good graphics cards and Good Moniters Sizes

ASUS (RECOMMENDED BY ME)

EDIT:i just sore your Comment ok your going to want to go with www.newegg.com (That WILL save alot of money)
