Gaming PC (Budget: 1000 €)

Discussion in 'Gaming' started by Chascarrillo, Aug 16, 2013.

  1. So yeah, I am saving money for a new PC and I need some advice.
    Here is what I am looking for:

    1. Good processor: For Minecraft and other things, I guess.
    2. Very Good Graphics Card: For playing the games at max resolution and Photoshop. Nvidia preferably.
    3. Very Good RAM: A lot of RAM in case that I want to have various programs opened.
    4. Not a Mac: Self-explanatory.
    5. Not a portable pc: I hate when it gets too hot and shuts down.

  2. Are you able to build one or know Anyone you know there Can Help?

    [EDIT]

    And where are you from?
    Do you know a site or a place there builds pcs?
    Do you have any certain site you wanna buy from?
  3. I have literally just got my 'gaming' PC yesterday, I'll give you my rough specs:
    • Intel Core i5 processor @3.0GHz
    • 8 GB RAM
    • 1 TB Hardrive
    • Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Graphics card (1GB dedicated)
    Now I got all this for £550 (approx 644 euros) and it's great for me, it might not be quite what you're looking for and you may want to upgrade some parts but I thought I would share it with you anyway. I got this by ordering the parts from http://www.scan.co.uk/ (Think it only does UK, sorry) and then my dads friend built it for me for free. This doesn't include the OS by the way.
  4. I suggest you break in somebodies house and steal one so you stay under budget, you might be on the news, and a free PC

  5. are you building this yourself? it's so much cheaper
  6. building it really is the way to get a decent pc for cheap, i spent a little less than what your looking for and my current specs are:
    i7 @ 3.5 Ghz
    16gb ram
    1Tb HDD, 120Gb SSD
    and a GTX 770 with 2gb dedicated

  10. You'll only need 6-8GB of RAM, and you can find that fairly cheap now. I'd say Jakes computer is probably the best, it's got an amazing graphics card and a good processor.

  11. I am from Spain. I know a site called pccomponentes.com where you can buy pieces for pcs.
  12. Yes, I like it, maybe upgrading the graphics and processor
  13. Yeah that's amazing, maybe changing the graphics card though
  14. I think the next step up for a Intel processor is an i7, but not sure.
  15. Yes I like i7s :D
  16. I've not added a case, because that's completely down to personal preference, but this is the best system you can get for the price, find a case you like and make sure it's support ATX motherboards and higher.

  17. Um... Can I buy any case? And what are the specs?
  18. Pretty much any case, Just click Add Case and find one you like.
  19. Yay! The only problem is that I live in Spain, but I suppose that they have a shipping service.
  20. I'm sure you can find the equivalent bits on Amazon.es or equivalent.
