Thread: Gaming desktop

    Gaming desktop

    I'm looking for a gaming desktop to get. I've honestly never put together a desktop on my own but if it's possible to get a better machine by putting it together myself I would like to. But tbh I'm clueless, I wouldn't even know how to like put shit into the actual box. Otherwise I'm just looking to buy something from like ibuypower or cyberpowerpc...

    I would like to spend no more than like $800 on the desktop and be able to max out settings on WoW and I play a few other games on Steam like CS, maybe Battlefield 3, no need for ultra on that lol, and Skyrim and maybe some bigger names in the future.

    I'm also from Canada so I can only make my purchases from like or

    If someone can point me in the right direction that would be awesome. Thanks
