Hello, with black friday/cyber monday coming up, I am hoping to be able to build a gaming computer for the first time. I am admittedly not very savvy when it comes to buying the parts, and am also willing to settle for a pre-built one if there is a good deal for one out there. I was doing some shopping around and well, since I don't really know what I am looking at, it's hard for me to tell where I am getting the best value for my money. I have a friend who seems to know about building them, but truthfully, I don't think he knows what he's talking about half the time either.
So here it is, I want to spend anywhere between $500-$850 for a pre-built one, or up to $1000 if I am building it myself. I am hoping to buy parts that are on sale so I can get as much bang for my buck as possible. I have looked at a few already:
cyberpowerpc . com/system/Black_Friday_AMD_8-Core/
cyberpowerpc . com/system/Black_Friday_Deal_Z97-I5/
newegg . com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883258065
... and they all seem great because of how much money I would save, but am I truly getting a deal? Like I said, I am also willing to purchase parts to build one from the ground up if I get more value out of that instead. Is anyone willing to help me out with this?
P.S. Sorry for the screwy links, I'm a new poster.
