Default Re: Would this be a great gaming computer

Why pay $18,000 for a system that will play games no faster than a CPU for about $2,000 plus $1,500 for the monitors you selected?
A $1,200 CPU (including OS) will play most games at about 98% or better of the same rate as the system above.
If you want a better response, I suggest eliminating all the gingerbread (games, headsets, UPS, application software, mousepads, etc) and focus on basic system - case, mobo, cpu, memory, heatsink/fan, psu, HD, and optical drive.

Agreed. Particularly when there is a lot of duplicate stuff in there that shouldn't be used together, like the multiple routers:

Buy a $1200 PC, save the rest of the cash toward retirement. Seriously, wow. And the CPU in that thing isn't even cutting edge anymore.

Yeah. Hilariously over priced. And I don't even think those video cards would work with each other. That's just pointless.

Huge amount of money to spend on a computer considering like others have said a $1200-$2000 build would be fine/great.

seriously my 2.1 GHz triple core gateway that i have runs games just fine (it has 6 gb of ram and an upgraded video card)


This is my gateway that was $800 and i put an aftermarket video card in it and i upgraded the ram it is a 2.1 GHz Triple core AMD Processor and it runs games probably as well as your $18,000 computer would.
