I'm LF help on a new PC for Christmas. Currently, I'm on a laptop and it's a pain to game on, and I'm looking at either a pre-built or custom-built PC. Here's some general info:
Upgrade or New Computer: New Computer
Upgrade on what (you hope): Everything
Willing to Self Build or a Pre-Built: Either (If Pre-Built, I'm looking at a ASUS, Dell, or an HP)
How much you want to spend: Budget build/purchase of roughly $600 (Does not include keyboard, mouse, speakers, etc.)
How much you can spend:$500-700 max for the PC/$100-300 for the peripherals
What all you plan to use it for: Gaming (Diablo III, Starcraft II, World of Warcraft, etc.), Internet, Microsoft Office (Home), etc.
What Operating system you want to use & Bit: Windows 64-Bit
What Resolution you hope to be in: Any
What Settings do you Want & how much FPS: As high as possible on my budget
What Country are you from: United States
What can you re-use: Nothing
Network will be wired or wireless: Both
Any Additional Info Here: I haven't decided on a monitor, but I'm looking at the Logitech Gaming Mouse, Logitech Wave Keyboard, and Logitech Speakers (I'm a fan of Logitech, but I'll consider other options). I would prefer a custom-built PC, but I may end up with a pre-built ASUS, Dell, or HP (I prefer HP, but I've been told that the ASUS is fairly decent). Honestly, I just want to use this as a starter PC to build upon in the future. I can upgrade as I go, but I want to get "the best bang for my buck." What are your thoughts on an ASUS or HP pre-built (Not a fan of Dell) over a custom-built PC?
Thanks for the help.
