    Computer noob inc :D

    Budget: 800-1000 can probably go higher when I get another job.
    Resolution: Monitor is at 1920:1080
    Games / Settings Desired: I wish to have max settings for any game I can throw at it. My computer is from probably 05 and graphics card is from 07. O_0!


    I have a computer build at ibuypower which is the "Gamer Mage D335"
    Processor: AMD FX-4100 CPU (4x 3.60GHz/4MB L2 Cache)
    Memory: 8 GB [4 GB X2] DDR3-1600 Memory Module
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 - 2GB
    Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 -- AMD 970
    PSU:700 Watt - Standard
    Primary Hard Drive::2 TB HARD DRIVE -- 64M Cache, 7200rpm, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive

    It comes out to $927. The problem is I think I am spending a lot of money on things and coming up short to reach max settings for any game.
    I'm not a computer expert at all. I just know more knowledgeable people can come up with something way better than spending 930 on a computer that doesn't reach max settings on anything.

    Thanks for your time. <33

    This is what I came up with from I buy Power that is a lot better than that system.

    i52500k is a much better CPU
    560 Ti is much better than a 560.
    The PSU is reliable
    You don't need to start with 2TB of HDD space.

    Also, clarification -

    This is if you DO NOT need windows 7. If you current have it you can probably do a clean install with no worries. Some people say that it won't work, but trust me, it usually does. If not, call up Microsoft and tell them what happened, and they'll usually go with it.

    If you need W7, add $100.00 to the price tag.

    You can also save $100.00 by going down from a 560Ti to the 6870 they have the special on right now.
