    Need help to find a good desktop computer to buy please ^_^

    Hey everyone. I'll be getting my tax refund here soon, and I'm in desperate need of an upgrade on my computer. I've had the same computer for 6-7 years, she's treated me good but even flash games and videos require more cpu than this ole' gal can keep up with. I was wanting to see if anyone had some suggestion on VERY cheap desktops that can at least run The Guild 2 on max settings smoothly. I've wanted that game for a while now, and many others, but have never had the money to upgrade my hardware. My refund is only going to be $900 this year, as the hotel I worked maintence at shut down permanently . Handy man maintenance, not janitor maintenance lol. A good bit of that $900 is going to bills. Aka, I need something really cheap. If anyone of you have a custom build recommendation that you feel would be more affordable, feel free to share. I look like a farm hand, but I'm a computer geek at heart . Thanks to anyone who can help.

    if you really want to go for a gaming desktop, i always recommend building it yourself. i have a PC that can run almost every game in existence at highest quality. a good example is that it can run Skyrim at highest.

    when i built my computer, it came out to cost about 550 USD total

    and i went with a 2tb harddrive, and probably some other things that you can ease up on and cut the cost a little bit

    Care to share all the the parts in your rig please? If I had a computer like that, I could finally get back into pc gaming again.


    Also, I use a 46" display. So it would need to support hd and good handling of 1920x1080 resolution.

    Haha, power to the tv pc people! ^_^ Thanks a bunch. I'll look over all these parts and see if I can track down the out of stock parts too. Hopefully I'll be able to afford it all :S.

    Oh, and big thanks for linking each part. That will save me a TON of time and headache lol.

    well i bought the 2tb hard drive becuase they were having a sale on it. you can go a little cheaper if you just get a 1tb

    and i only got the DVD drive to install the OS. if you can install it a different way, than you might not need it

    Oh, I've got tons of dvd/cd drives laying around. Also, I can salvage from my existing computer. I can even use its power supply, 600w and sata compatable. How much ram are you running right now? 8, 12, 16?

    Re: Need help to find a good desktop computer to buy please ^_^

    i have 8, but it still has 2 ram slots open, so i could upgrade it to 16 if i wanted.
    and since you have all the old parts that'll save a good amount of money. i got a little netbook, and was able to make the ram at least 2 because of my old laptops ram. it's always nice to save parts from old computers

    Pheeeeeeew, I just found out that motherboard can hold up to 32 gigs of ram. Four 8 gig sticks in total. Also, that graphics card your using requires 500w. If you only have a 500w in your rig, you might wanna get a bigger one. At least 600w, because that 500w wont be able to efficiently power your video card AND all the other hardware in your rig properly. Just a friendly suggestion ^_^

    yup, it's a good motherboard. if you're lucky you might be able to use your old ram cards. even if you only have 2 2gb cards, you could just buy another 2, and save a little.
    and thanks for the advice. the power supply is temporary. as long as i don't overwork it, it'll be fine for a while. i've already had it for maybe 3 months, and never a problem
