os- operating system, like vista or xp

it will be fine for those games

but you can get a better price if you build your own. if not, you still can find a better value.

you live in the states?

well
i dont know how to set up a computer at all and i dont want to try to build it cause i know ill screw it up (im 13)
and i saw a bunch of like $1000 dollar computers in the store, but when i reviewed them online they werent very good

oh and what about the Phenom II X4 940 at 3ghz
its only like 200$, but it seems good
better deal? or is that just cores and not a whole computer itself (like the above)

its just the prosessor the Phenom II X4 940 cost $180 on newegg has .4 more GHz and it is quad core
but your AMD Phenom II X3 710 is $100 on newegg has a little less power per core and only has tripple core
it just depends on how much you want to spend

Well the model that I first posted is an AMD Phenom ll x3 710, and I really don't want to pay another $80 for the x4 940
And I kinda want to build my own but don't know how, so Ithink I'll just get the one of from cyber power
Good deal?

Honestly, I don't think it's worth it... Usually when you buy a computer that's been prebuilt, a good portion of the price is them building it. Order your parts separately at good deals from reputable places n put it together yourself.

Putting together your own comp is easy. I did it with my current one with no experience. Just be sure to look at the specs of the parts you want, make em compatible. It's just a simple puzzle, ya know; make sure these numbers match up, get the stuff in the mail, plug stuff into MB where it looks like it goes (with help of MB manual of course), done.
