Help: New Computer Specs

Recommended Posts

Maryelle   

Hello!

 

My brother needs to replace his PC as it's labouring something chronic after the last three game updates. I'm not the best person for giving desktop advice (since I only use laptops), so I hope someone here can help!

 

We're in Australia, so I've rounded up some specs. Building a PC isn't possible as neither of us is technically inclined.

 

Could someone please have a look over these specs and let me know which would be good.

 

Thanks, all!

Actually BnS is singlecore intensive.

Meaning what matters most, is how fast your CPU is core by core - Intel miles ahead core by core.

 

Also all your options seems prebuilt. And very poor choices.

 

If you give me

1) Country of purchase

2) Budget

 

I´ll list the best possible gaming pc for your money and where to order it.

Those video cards are bad... really bad... even for BnS. They are around same performance as the newer Intel's integrated graphics that come free with their CPUs.

 

If you don't have other options, I say go with no. 3.

Well, how much do these cost? and what is your budget?.

 

unless you are getting these reaallllyy cheap somehow, I would  never buy any of those, also wireless/Bluetooth/card reader cards on a desktop is a waste of money in my opinion.

 

I highly recommend buying individual parts and assembling it yourself, it isn't too hard to do and extremely fun and rewarding plus you save tons of money.
