Is buying a gaming PC from a big box tech retailer a good idea? 🤔
The Best Prebuilt Gaming PC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bntO8Cm3X8
as someone who doesn't know much about PCs and pricing, I would like some advice
I currently have a i7 - 4770 CPU @ 3.4 GHz, GTX 650 and 12 GB of ram. I bought it pre built in 2013 (I think) for 1100 bucks and looking to get a new PC since this one isn't running very well anymore, getting errors a lot.
I was at one of those 'random pc part retailer' stores and found a i7 - 7700 @ 3.6Ghz, 12 GB of ram and a GTX 1050 for 1200 bucks.
was my original purchase worth it? is the one I found worth it? any advice for BUILDING a PC even though I have no idea how to do that.
Hey guys I bought... an HP Pavillion i5 7400, NVIDIA GTX 1060, 8Gb RAM, 1 TB HDD, 300W power supply for $615. I plan on upgrading eventually but I’m just starting to enter the PC market. Should I feel confident for an entry level PC?
That is the SAME exact PC that I am using right now! At least the same case, but I got this with 12 gigs, 3.4 GH, and yeah.. Don't know what Graphics card I have, though, for $500 CAD, on sale from 800.
I got an i7 Alienware Alpha steam machine with 16gb ram for $150 wich is nothin amazing but considering what was paid and what it came with I feel it was a steal installed Windows 10 and runs way better than expected
Pls r8 my setup
Motherboard: B350M Bazooka
Graphics card:AMD RADEON RX 580 4 GB
Processor: AMD ryzen 5 1400 (will be upgrading to 1600)
Ram: 8 GB DDR4 RAM (Will be getting 16 or more)
PSU: Don't know the name but it's 450 watts, I think?
Hard drive: western digital caviar blue 1 TB 7200 RPM
Monitor: 27es hp monitor
This was $650 dollars, not including monitor.
My specs are i5 4690 3.5 GHz, 16GB ram, GTX 1070 evga super clocked and a 1tb HDD. I never got a sdd never felt like moving things around on my hard drive got to lazy. Built it myself and Ik no one cares :)
Also just got a ps4 and a switch this past summer. Also had Xbox one since launch. I love my PC but I love gaming so whatever platform I play IDC its just gotta be a fun game
My advice, check out pawn shops. I usually look around and find complete setups for dirt cheap and re sell them. Just found a setup with an x4 760k and a r7 260x that came with a monitor, keyboard, and deathadder for $100. Sold it for $350 lol.
don't laugh just don't
I have an i5 7200U @ 2.75(ish) Nvidia GeForce 920MX

Ew Cyberpower PC... I had one of their builds and it was awful. When it first arrived my main HDD wasn't properly installed and had been jarred around during the shipping process so it was completely dead and had to be shipped back. Then the wiring for the thing was a complete mess and inaccessible and utter nonsense. Lastly, their customer service took forever to get back to me anytime I had an issue. After 6 months I said screw it and just started working on it myself to learn how to do it better. Paid off in the long run as it lasted for 6 years after I started tinkering with it until I build a new one from parts I bought last year. So the only good thing I can say about the company is that they kind of forced me to learn more about PCs
"750ti, that's ancient"
so what? it's still a perfectly good budget card, i have one on my main pc and it still has 0 issues running any game i throw at it with at least medium settings, although provided it's will optimised, i can usually even get high settings (if it's not well optimised (*cough* pubg *cough*) then obviously i'm not, but it's not the 750ti's fault that some developers care more about money then they do making good games that run well)
and at the price fry's had that pc at? that's a perfectly good deal, about what my pc cost total including the gpu
