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?

The best option, realisticly is to just build it, there are many good tutoriols out there on YouTube and it is very satisfying when you are done, plus you get more selectiability ect.

PlzReviveMeBro (9 days ago)
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.

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

I like how $600 is considered cheap and you can't get a very good pc with it. $600 is quite a lot of money i think
