Ok, so ive been wanting a new system that can handle some mid to high graphics settings on most games. I am not really that tech savvy in terms of hardware and have never put together my own computer before. I have a budget that I'd like to stay around of $700.
Willing to but don't yet know how
Would prefer a system that worked well at factory settings and save overclocking for times when I'm feeling nerdy.
Parts Already Owned---
Moniter: 23" Samsung
OS: Windows XP or 7 for free through my school
Keyboard and mouse
Budget: ~$700 (willing to go higher if there are some parts that the system just will not be complete without but $1k is max)
I was also wondering if this would be a good start
(I know this is for $1000, but their benchmark results were better than anything i needed. They had Crysis at very high settings running at 40 fps (50 overclocked) which is probably more than i would even be able to see the difference)
Please, feel free to start from there, comment on these builds or completely start completely from scratch
I really appreciate the help
