Preferred Solution: Want to build a gaming/video editing pc

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My suggestions:

- Stick with Haswell, newer is always better.
- Stick with the 240GB SSD, a 120/128GB one will fill up very quickly especially when you consider overprovisioning.
- Downgrade the mobo to something like the ASUS Z87-A unless you know you'll need the extra features of the Sabertooth.
- The GTX 780 is obviously the quickest card out there but it is also very poor value for money, you might want to consider downgrading to a GTX 770. Your monitor is only 1920x1200 @60Hz so you might not even be able to notice the difference between those 2 cards.
- Get a 750-850W PSU in case you ever want to add another card in SLI in the future. It's always a good idea to invest in a decent PSU for future upgrades.

I ve been wanting to build a system for a while and I m kind of nervous because it looks like my first build might be for somebody else lol But I ve done quite a bit of upgrading and replacing components so really the only thing I can think of now that I haven t done is mount the motherboard to the case But I realize there are more for Build Editing System Video things to go wrong because everything is new I don t know much about video editing but here is what I am thinking so far ASUS or Gigabyte motherboard full size likely System Build for Video Editing AMD as I am more familiar with it but if an Intel build looks like a better deal I have nothing against building Intel instead I am thinking at least a Phenom X maybe X I know it needs firewire I think the system might benefit from RAID I m not sure what other features the motherboard needs I m thinking it needs GBs of RAM I told them if they need to save money they might be able to start with but I don t know how much this will effect the video editing performance I know it needs System Build for Video Editing a video card I m more into gaming but from what I ve read gaming would benefit more from a higher end card than video editing I like NVIDIA I ve looked at the GTX but I System Build for Video Editing m not sure if they need a card for this application They definitely need something with HDMI and dual monitor support They want to have at least one blue ray burner They asked about blue ray burners but I told them I m not sure there would be that much advantage to having I m assuming a multi core processor would be capable of burning discs but I told them if that is an issue they might want to consider a separate copier I haven t been doing much burning so I told them I will look into it more I think they are interested in RAID to speed up disc access time if used the correct term there I was thinking the would want a larger hard drive than TB but they asked about smaller drives or multiple partitions because of concerns about slow access I wasn t aware of this issue but maybe it just didn t come up in my gaming I m reasonably sure video editing would be working with larger files so I want this computer to be fast at disk access I would imagine an SSD would help but it might not be practical depending on the hard drive space needed I realize I don t have a budget yet so I wanted to give them what I think they need at a minimum and then if they want to spend more they can They will be primarily using Pinacle Since I don t know much about video editing l would like some opinions if I ve left anything out or maybe something more specific for the motherboard or video card Also if you think blue ray burners is a good idea because I ve never had a system with multiple burners nbsp

This is where I am on a new system It will be used for surfing the web spreadsheets and the new endeavor of video editing The video editing will be mainly transfering VHS to DVD with quite a bit of editing to trim the unwanted segments Here are the selected components and my thoughts Please feel free to critique advise or bring any other thoughts to this list You cannot hurt my feelings I am so numb after looking for components for six months that I do not think I have any feelings left Case Antec Sonata III Thoughts Has plenty of expandability W Earthwatts PSU should be more than adequate Do not like the front door but can remove mm fan another mm fan should keep it cool Front eSATA port Washable filter requires pulling case Video Editing System New Build out to remove filter The price for the case with PSU is much lower than any other combination Case cooling fan Antec -speed mm Motherboard ASUS P K-E WIFI-AP LGA P ATX Intel Thoughts Has plenty of SATA ports Do not know where the Sonata front eSATA plugs into the motherboard CPU Intel E FBS Ghz MB New Video Editing System Build Cache HS Fan RAM Super Talents DDR GB Thoughts This is an area where I understand the CPU and RAM are performance points to consider for the video editing Will this perform okay Optical Drive- Lite-On X SATA with Lightscribe Thoughts Includes an abridged version of Nero Optical Drive- Lite-On X SATA without Lightscribe Thoughts I have read the suggestion to buy different DVD drives to get different softwares I probably will not spend the extra for the Lightscribe discs Everyone has their favorites For the this seems a good choice Video Card EVGA GT MB Thoughts My understanding is that for video editing the video card is not a major consideration My original pick was the GTS but was told that was overkill for editing Video Capture Input Card Win TV HVR Thoughts It has the audio and video line-in inputs in addition to coaxial input I might want to record over-the-air digital programming in the future Monitor Undecided Thoughts My understanding is that whatever the quot native quot resolution of the monitor the video card should support it I do not like round images to not be round I would like more desk space but I like the clear text image of the CRT Harddrives I already have Seagate GB drives recieved as a Christmas present from my kids If I have left anything out or you have suggestions please let me know This has been much more difficult that the last build in Thank you very much for any and all comments nbsp

Very decent setup indeed. However, I would get the Corsair TX 750 instead to keep the option of adding a second 6950 in the near future.

Instead of the Antec 300, take a look at the BitFenix Shinobi. Wonderful case at a $60 price point.

Hey guys,
As you can see i'm new to the forums so hopefully I get this right.
I've been having BSOD for months now, and unfortunately I've been unable to figure out the problem.
the latest error i've gotten was 0x0000010E but i've gotten others.
The error varies from IQRL_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL to PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA.
It can happen when gaming on steam, or video editing.
BSOD occurred not too long before posting this thread and I was literally doing nothing on my PC, just sitting on steam not playing any games.
This past day i've gotten 5+ blue screens and I just can't take it anymore.
hopefully the information within the attached file will help solve this issue.
I actually ran SF Diagnostic through safe mode, hope that's ok.
If not I can try to run it while in regular mode.
Thanks in advance.

A:Will the Computer that im building meet todays gaming & video editing needs?

It appears to be nice system. One thing I would recommend is getting a better power supply. The Thermaltake has only 14 and 15 amps respectively on the two +12v rails. By comparison an Antec 480W psu has 18 amps each on two rails. Anyway, a better brand would be good.

You might want to include a floppy drive. They are so incredibly inexpensive and you'll need it to facilitate the installation of the RAID/SATA drivers you'll need for your SATA hard drive.

I have a friend that I am going to build a PC for that uses AutoCad and her daugther does some video-editing.

I was thinking of going with an AMD dual core--the rest of course will fall into line after choosing the best processor. I want an Asus MOBO to go with the processor, and appropriate video card--the rest is pretty much preference.

Will the Dual Core be better than a faster single core processor for AutoCad? I know it will for the video editing.

I would like to be able to make audio adjustments and audio changes to a few screencast videos.  I do not really undestand Audacity; but tried learning it many years ago.  I am absolutely not confident nor comfortable with learning Movie Maker; I am not sure how to handle Bandicam, having tried it briefly many many months ago.  I am comfortable with and have used Screencast-o-matic, the free downloadable version, a few times, and it was fairly easy to learn and to use.  I would just like to learn and use something a little bit more clever than Screen-cast-o-matic, and to edit or make changes to some video recordings.  FREE/FREEWARE wanted.

A:Video editing or including audio editing or recording

Hey, cafejose! I have used Movie Maker before. It is not that difficult in fact. And for freewares, then you can see some recommendations of ShowMore. This is a newly-built website that I am very fond of and I get quite a lot help from its application. I always take it to record Skype calls but I think it can also solve your problem here. For more alternatives, I advice you to take these free recording tools introductions for your reference.

Hello, first of all I want to say: Thank you so much for helping me find my Laptop!
Criteria:
I would like to play games like Starcraft 2, Counterstrike, TF2, CoD, etc. on the go at Medium Settings and a playable FPS.
I want the laptop to have a good enough CPU power and RAM so I can video edit 720p videos.
The lowest hard drive space I need would be around 200GB.
Maybe VGA port?
(My aimed price would be as cheapest as you can find? or lower than 1000$)
Notes:
My friend was talking about the E350 AMD Processor?

Thank you!!!

Nobody can help much without knowing your budget and your possible source for parts--Newegg, Amazon, Ebay, whatever you are using.

Is that an Antec case?

Thermaltake PSUs are average; you can do better.

I wouldn't choose Biostar unless forced into it for budgetary reasons.

I'm in the middle of creating you tube tutorials. I've been scouring the internet attempting to find an affordable video editing tool, (or free) that will edit/produce professional appearing introductions to my youtube videos. Does anyone know where I could find such a program over the internet?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
 

A:A good video editing tool to create professional introductions to video creations

Hmm, How long do you need the video editing tool? You could get a trial for Vegas Pro 8 and Vegas Pro 9 i think they are both for 30 days, so you could use them while you are trying to find a free or affordable tool.

I recently got a Dell Dimension E520 without a video card. I rarely play games on my computer. I plan to use it for editing and authoring my home videos. I want to stick to under 100$ for the video card.

Been reading about video cards and am leaning towards a 7300 GT , 7600 GS or 7600 GT.

Which of above cards is optimum for what I want to do.

Thanks for your help.


My specs:

Dell Dimension E520
E6300 Core 2 duo (1.86 Ghz)
1 GB RAM
VX2235 - 22 inch Digital LCD (display is bad with integrated video card)

Hello,

I need help finding Video editing software compatible with Vista/Win7 that can do the following:

- Remove watermarks from videos.
- Put your own created watermark on a video
- Blur out faces
- Cut parts of the video image
- Edit and draw on the video, replacing the cut piece with a still image, or even another piece of a video

So I guess basically I'm looking for all-out video editing.

I'd prefer freeware. But anything will do if that's all available.

It's no problem if I have to use different programs for each thing.

My current system is a Dell XPS 430 and can handle video editing pretty well.

Thanks!!
 

A:Need video editing software for altering video image

I don't think you will get any help here to remove someone elses watermark from a video that doesn't belong to you. The watermark is put there to discourage copying. Helping you I believe would be against forum rules.

Starting to gather info on best CPU / video card to use ?

Don't use the computer for gaming ... but do require good performance for video capture and editing (guess same required for gaming anyway) ... any thoughts on what to look for ??

Have AverMedia USB2 TV capture module, but may be better to be in notebook rather then having more things to plug in ...

Budget around $1500-2500 (maybe 3,000)

Battery life not a problem be using it mostly at home

I should have mentioned: the system DOES see the camera; it's right there, but it won't capture.

Also, I spent some time with Belkin tech support to see if it was a firewire issue, but they weren't able to help. I also uninstalled and reinstalled the firewire card and software several times.

I have a 1.8 P-4 older machine with an older ATI graphics card--I forget what model but not one of the higher end gaming models. When I edit videos, the video and the sound don't stay in sinc and the video freezes. I'm not sure if its the older processor or the video card or what. I'm looking to get a 3+ with 833 FSB, which should be plenty for video editing, but don't want it to bottle up with the video card. I also don't want an expensive gaming card if I don't need one, but obviously those things are built for really intensive graphics, but I don't think I need that just for video editing.

What do you recommend?

Ok few questions first.
What kind of games are you looking to play?
What type of monitor and how big are you going to use?
How MANY monitors?
What kind of graphics settings are you wanting to run these games on? Max, high?

These questions will basically help us determine if your system is correct or maybe possibly overkill or whatnot.

Hi there. I'm looking for a very good gaming PC that I will be able to run big games at decent quality and framerate. It'd also be nice to have a computer that can record these games without lag. I also would want a computer that would be performing well for at least 2 years.

Now after researching it was pretty obvious to me that the best way to go was build a computer. So could you guys tell me which parts I should use? Here is what I'm looking for:

- Great for gaming
- Will be able to let me record whilst playing
- I have no budget, but don't go over $2500

Thanks for reading

The i7 is a good choice and I personally think it is the best way to go. As for motherboard, I'd stick to ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, or possibly ASRock.





Qlcool said:





PCI 3Click to expand...

I'm assuming you mean PCIe 3.0, PCI is an older card slot design.





Qlcool said:





and all that stuff so I can upgrade it later geforce gtx 590 I'm planning later to get another one so I want some help with that too is it wise to put two gtx 590 or should I just wait for the new series to come out....Click to expand...

As long as you can manage the heat issues that will arise from installing two GPU's.





Qlcool said:





also I want the SSD HDD ,Click to expand...

I'm assuming you know SSD and HDD are two different drives. You would want the SSD for a OS drive and the HDD for a storage drive.





Qlcool said:





32 gb ram...Click to expand...

8GB would be plenty for most cases. 16GB would probably be all you need. It's my opinion that 32GB would be massive over-kill for the general population.





Qlcool said:





also idk about the cooling should I get liquid cooling or ? I'm also planning to overclock my CPU when I get the second graphic card....Click to expand...

If you are planning on over-clocking and using two GPU's, water cooling is a safer way to go. You would need to speak with someone else though, as I have no experience with water cooling.





Qlcool said:





I will get a descent PSU so what do you think is it a good configuration ? also should I build it my self or go to the local store and get them to help me with it ...Click to expand...

I would say you are ready for your own build experience. Even if you make a mistake, you will still be happy after you have completed your objective. And after it is all said and done, you will never need someone else to build your PC's again.

MOBO: Asus P8P67
CPU: Inter Core i7 2600
GPU: Asus Radeon HD 6950
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600MHz
HDD: ??
PSU: Corsair HX-750W

And here are the three HDD's:

Western Digital AV-GP 1TB SATA 3 Gb/s 7200RPM 64MB Cache (NZ$103.17)
Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache, 7200 RPM (NZ$130.92)

I'm quite keen on saving a bit of cash as I am spending more than I originally planned, but will there be a noticeable performance difference by going for the WD Black?

Thanks in advance!

Is it possible to build a $300 gaming build that can run games like TF2, WoW, SCII, Guild Wars 2 etc, and slightly older games on 15'' monitor?

I have Win xp, optical drive and hard drive already. Thanks in advance.
 

A:$300 gaming build??

A 15" monitor? If the monitor is that old, the optical drive and hard drive probably are too which means they're IDE drives. New motherboards use SATA ports. You probably also can't find Windows XP chipset drivers for new boards and graphics cards.

Hello I'm planning on building my PC during the winter and I was just wondering if there is any advice you guys could give me? Some dos or donts. I'm not to educated on computer parts so if you could help me decide which graphics card to get, nvidia or Radeon or any other ones.
My budget is $400-$600 so if there are any builds that are out there now that you recommend please let me know. (Ones that include mouse,monitor, and keyboard would be nice too)

And how often do computer parts come out? Would I find myself buying parts in a few months just to upgrade? I'm not looking to have 4k settings just be able to play upcoming games like the division fallout4 at pretty decent graphics and frames.

Okay, I really want to build a gaming PC.
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START.
So, I basically want to build a gaming computer for the experience of putting one together.
I'd rather have intel or AMD, whichever is fine.
My budget is anything, but $650-700 MAX.
Now, I know 650-700 is minimum for a GAMING computer (at least I think I know), but all I want to do on the computer is normal gaming. Like, not hardcore 4k thing or whatever, but just ONE monitor playing a simple game. I don't need ULTRA graphic settings on the game, low-medium but still high dps is absolutely fine. I just want to be able to play modern games smoothly.
I have an idea of some stuff I want, BUT I have NO CLUE with compatibility with these things. I don't know how to tell this stuff.
So could someone give me the parts of a good computer for a gamer such as I? I play WoW, D3, MC, L4D2, SMITE, etc.
I shoulda asked this earlier....today's Cyber Monday.. I NEED TO SQUEEZE IN SOME PURCHASES!

A:New build gaming pc. Did I do it right?

You have an awesome system, pretty much at the top, no worries there. Probably your biggest hangup at the moment is your ram, actually. Up that to 2gb and you'll be flying. You'll want two sticks of 1Gb, not 4 sticks of 512, and you should look at getting a high performance make if you really are wanting to get performance.

What make is that ram you have now? Do you know what the timings are set at?

As for your CPU, not many games are using dual core at the moment (in fact, are there any?). The single core CPUs in general are performing better gamewise with their higher clockrates. BUT, hopefully the games that start coming out now will start taking advantage of dual core technology.

I am curious about the 433Mhz memory. I thought that 400mhz was the max. Need someone with more knowledge than I have to answer that.

As for your future upgrade options, at the moment the sky is your limit. Socket 939 is still the best for AMD, and PCI-e is still the best for graphics. That board should keep you at the top of the heap for a while to come.

Finally, just a warning for you (I have the same mobo). Your chipset fan may fail on you sometime in the near future. If you hear a freakishly loud noise all of the sudden, that's what it is.

Actually, take a look at your motherboard now. Is the chipset fan mounted parallel to the motherboard? I.e., square? (as opposed to being diagonally installed - a diamond shape)? The square mounted fan is the older type, and have a high percent chance of dying. Easily replaced, just a pain in the.....

I am planning on building a gaming PC with a budget of around $900 Australian dollars and this is the list of components I have come up with.

Graphics card: $225.15

Leadtek WinFast GTX 560 Ti 1GB GDDR5
__________________________________________
Case: $52.50

Xigmatek Asgard II

Power supply unit: $85

TP-Link TL-WN350GD 54M Wireless

Memory: $37.70

G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL 4GB (2x 2GB)

I Have done quite a bit of research on these components but would like to clarify a few questions.
Are all of these components completely compatible with each other?
Will all of the components fit into the case?
Am I getting the best price and value for all of the components?
Do you have any suggestions to change a component?

Thanks, James

Good choices.
Depending on the price of that TX650 I'd recommend the Rosewill Capstone 550/m or Seasonic g series 550.
Also it'd be nice to find a kit of 1866 RAM, which you can probably find at a similar price if you're lucky and there's some sales.
Also depending on the price you can probably get a Samsung EVO 250gb for a little cheaper.

I didn't know where else to post this, I'm new here.

I'm building a new PC for Christmas, and was wondering if anyone here would be able to tell me how it would run for games like L4D2, WoW, Borderlands, etc.

Intel Core i5

nVidia GTX 275

6 GB of G.SKILL RAM

550 Watt PSU

Those are the 'main' factors for the PC as far as I know.

If you need the rest of the specs let me know and I can post.



Thanks much!

A:Gaming PC build-up

With that much going on and if you play on eventually upgrading, I'd suggest 800+ Watts PSU and for the PCU cooler a Tuniq tower could be nice.

When it comes down to mobo you should know EXACTLY what you need for you to choose the right one.

Everything looks good, but if I were you, I would go with an AMD capable motherboard and processor. Intel i7's are great little processors, but AMD has been coming out with some processors that oust them completely. Especially if you are looking for a great gaming rig. That or maybe spend 1000 bucks and go for an Intel Extreme

A:Gaming PC build help

I don't think that you have any need for 6GB RAM as the Phenom II X4 955 does not have a triple channel memory controller. It would have been useful only with an i7 build.

A RAM cooler is also useless unless you're looking for extreme overclocks.

For the motherboard you'll be better off buying the Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P. You may also look into the MSI GD 70.

The 955BE is a brilliant overclocker. You should look into getting a good aftermarket CPU cooler.

For PSU, I would suggest the Corsair 650TX unless you absolutely require a modular one. The case could have been better. However, that's a question of personal tastes.

What GPU are you purchasing for this system?

I used the advices from :

and modified just a little bit.

I feel a bit hesitant about the motherboard because some reviews say that they come dead out of the box. However, the motherboard and CPU combo saves me a few so I chose that motherboard.

Also, do you guys think it is wise to wait til cybermonday/blackfriday to order these or do you think those really won't go on sale?

A:MMO Gaming Build for £1200

A better ssd, use an air cooler like Noctua D14 or 15, phanteks,stronger psu for future sli or crossfire 750 or 850,something like a 450mbp dual band for wireless or something in the ac wireless class, 8gigs would serve you well but 16 is nice to have. Last but not least I7 for just gaming is really just paying far to much for just gaming. One of the newer I5s would serve just aswell and save you a dollar. While the build would run okay, Its price to performance is grossly off. You are building a overclocker that cant overclock.

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Freaksamcker/saved/BTwkcf As far as ram wise, the fastest ram within your budget.( 8gigs) Make sure the air cooler will fit in your case.

A:Solved: Gaming PC build help

If you're going to dish out some money on a nice graphics card like that, and you want to leave your options open for the future, I'd go for a 600W power supply which should cost you at least $60. Don't buy bad quality PSUs.

Your graphics card can more than handle a 20" monitor.

Cooling shouldn't be an issue providing you install the CPU fan correctly and have a 120mm fan or 2 80mm fans in the case

COMMENTS ON PART LISTNG
CPU
I chose the 3570K as I am open to overclocking. However, still deciding if I should just go with the new Haswell 4670 since I've read that overclocking doesn't really show results for a gaming rig + not sure if I'm confident enough of overclocking.

Motherboard
Many builds I've seen that use the 3570K utilize this motherboard so I guess it goes pretty well with the Ivy Bridge.

Storage
SSD for installing of the Windows 7 OS and the HDD for installation of games and the like.

Video Card
My 2nd choice as of the moment. Open to possible SLI/Crossfire configurations but unsure of which graphic cards are worth dual-pairing right now. VERY open to suggestions and opinions on this. Main choice is the new SAPPHIRE R9 280X 3GB TOXIC Edition but currently not available in my country. Hopefully it'll be released over the course of this month.

Case
Read good reviews about this case. Ideally a Mid Tower, other considerations are :
-NZXT Phantom 410 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($105.98 @ Newegg)
-Cooler Master Storm Enforcer ATX Mid Tower Case ($79.99 @ Newegg)

Power Supply
Enough for possible overclocking?

Any feedback and suggestions greatly appreciated. Like I've said I'm new to building a gaming rig so I am willing to put careful thought into any opinions put forward.

A:First time gaming Build

Something like this is a good base. You can get a slightly lower motherboard, leave out the sound card, and put more money into GPU and PSU. Other people can help with that.

Do you need to purchase a Windows license, monitors, kb/mouse?

A:Build or buy Gaming PC? I could really do with some advice

Realistically. Is the learning curve steep?Click to expand...

Realistically, it would save you very much money at that price point, well worth it.
Since everything plugs right in, if it doesn't fit in that slot you're doing it wrong, so its fairly easy to build a computer now...it shouldn't take more than a couple hours at most. Again, well worth it.

Looking at examples like the The Enthusiast's PC build I was curious if when OCT comes around would there be a better option? I'm going to have some extra money just for a gaming desktop. I'm hoping for an Eyefinity setup that comes to $1500 not to include Mouse and KB. Everything else though, including OS.

Any recommendations? Should I go AMD or Intel come Oct? Should prices be dropping soon with AMD hardware in the next month?

A:My first computer build for gaming

My first suggestion is that you need a TL; DR.

I read some (IMO) poor choices, and I also happened to notice that you say that you're pretty clueless.
Therefore I went over your plans briskly.

So lets get started, first thing we need to know is a budget, and what that'll include, i.e. will that include a monitor? Mouse? Keyboard? OS? ect...

Then why buy a overclocker's CPU? The 'K' versions of i7s are multiplier unlocked, meant for overclocking. Of course if price is the same as normal 2600 then by all means go for it





Figure out how to install a SSDClick to expand...

The same way you install any hdd.





Figure out how to install Windows 7 from a CDClick to expand...

It's a DVD and you set the PC to boot from it.





Should I buy better thermal compound? Any suggestions?Click to expand...

It doesn't make any difference as you're not overclocking.





Difference between DDR3 1066 and 1600?Click to expand...

You won't see any. A few percentage in most applications.





Should I upgrade to 8GB?Click to expand...

The more the better if you ask me
Just make sure you install 64-bit OS.





Is 750W enough for my system now? Is it enough if I wanted to have two GTX 560s?Click to expand...

It should be enough for both.





Do NZXT cases only support NZXT case fans? I've read that NZXT fans aren't all that great, should I get some other fans?Click to expand...

As long as the fan holes are standard 80/120/something mm, you shouldn't have any problems with other fans. I don't know about NZXT fan quality.

A:Few questions regarding gaming PC build

With that budget, you can easily get an Intel based system. I think AMD is a better choice though since it leaves room for a better GPU. This is what I recommend: http://goo.gl/JW4Tt6. If you need Windows 7, I will need to downgrade some components.

Hi I am looking to build a new PC for gaming, I already have a pre built computer which was used for school work etc. (decent processor, crappy graphics). It is a slimline pavilion so I can't add on to it, all parts are OEM.

I am interested in getting opinions of places to order products (within Australia), and complete builds that are $600 or less.

Thanks

Edit: Only interested in Desktop, not including mouse, monitor keyboard etc.
