    Build PC, or buy Pre Built?

    I know this is obvious, but, im a super noob when it comes to PC's. I dont know whats good, and whats not... What im asking from you guys is to give me some sample builds, and i mean everything, from a case, to video card, etc, everything i need to build a pc. Monitor/Keyboard and such is not required as i have some pretty decent ones but yeah. Also, i was thinking of just buying this decent pc :

    Hi.

    As for the bulldozer CPU


    The graphics card is very weak, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Which country are you in? What's your pricepoint?

    Serbia, around 500 euros.

    The real problem with the Bulldozer CPU (from the testing I've seen at least) is that it is meant more for multi-thread applications like virtual servers etc.
    Most gaming only takes advantage of single-thread processing, which is done better by other chips.
    This is said to be addressed in the start of 2012 with a BIOS upgrade (I assume) but for now it looks like there are better chips for gaming, at least.

    Seems like a decent build for a PC except for the weak graphics card.
    I might look for a setup with an i3 or an i5 Intel processor, since I've seen those get really good benchmark results for gaming.
    Check out some benchmarking sites like www.futuremark.com and some of the overclocking sites like www.overclock.net
    I frequent these sites a lot and the forums have some really cool/ helpful/ knowledgeable people.
