Specs: -, -
Hello,

I currently rocking with a 2012 mac and it is awful. Every game all my friends play I cant play as well as the games that do work on it run like s---. I have been wanting to build a computer for a while but never had any idea where to start I have spent the last week on YouTube but I still have no idea what is good and still within my budget (around 700-800) I don't really want to do anything crazy, i just want to be able to play the games I like (Overwatch, CSGO, Dishonored 2 ect) at around 60fps on decent graphics. Can anyone help me?

I don't know where you are, but here in Manila there are 100's of computer shops who can build a PC for you. Just select the components and let them build and test it for you. They can point out the best package for gaming that fits your budget.

No geeky friends into computers either?

Hello Sluc,

I know that is an option but I want to max my performance for money therefore I don't want to pay someone to build it. A lot of my Friends have built their computer but they just found a build on you tube and put it together they don't know whats best and neither do I. I want to make sure that I get the best build possible so I am trying to talk to a lot of people for the best idea of what to get

Be aware that "often" it can cost more to home build than to buy; but not always...

Presuming you'll be running a current windows OS... the more RAM the better if running programmes that are serious nmber crunchers; and games are generally in that category?

Buy quality RAM... You might check out what crucial.com have - specify which motherboard you have, as you won't be able to run their free downladable scanner utilty until you have a working computer.

Start with an ASUS motherboard. Solid foundation for a gaming PC.

This may be a little overwhelming going here, but you can search individual components, manufacturers, and be budget wise also.

I don't need to be right, but I am never wrong.
