    Hi guys,
    I need your help with buying a new computer.
    I want to play games on ultra settings like BF3,Skyrim,The Witcher 2,GW2.
    I'm playing on 1920x1080 screen resolution.
    My budget is 1700$ and I got a hard disk already.
    I don't need keyboard,headset,mouse and OS.

    I know you said you have a hard disk, but you may want to consider a new one depending on the age of your current.

    As it is related (and if it's not breaking any rules. Apologies if so!), i'd like to request some similar advice.

    Must be a desktop.
    My budget is ~£2000.
    I would like to be able to play Guild Wars 2 on maximum settings.
    I have zero computer knowledge so a pre-built machine is likely the way forward as I am simply clueless.
    I live in England.
    I have a gaming mouse already (have a laptop currently).
    Liquid cooling is essential as the room it will be in can get warm.

    Thank you

    It's not hard to build a computer.

    Liquid cooling or air cooling doesn't matter in that regard. It can't cool it to colder than the air around it anyway.

    Use the same build and you will have no issues.

    Ok, i'm in. I need magic in my life!

    Brilliant video, thank you. I'm going to give it a go. I'll take a look at the above recommended and the stickies and make a thread before finalising. Thanks a lot.
