So r9k. I'm dead dead broke right now, but I want to get into PC gaming.
What are the best budget builds out there, under $500. Itll be a pain in the ass to get that together, but I'll be able to
Is it worth it buying prebuilts, I was looking at walmart and saw pic related within my budget and figured it'd be worth getting.
Also, easy ways robots can make money without wageslaving?
Will a computer like this be able to let me play games like Tera, maybe mechwarrior or hawken, and Skyrim?
Just get some 400 dollar dell, throw a video card in it, and call it a day. You won't be able to play Skyrim on max and never have a stutter, but you can play most games on low with it and like 90% of popular games coming out are just shitty 2d pixel games that run fine on a tablet anyway.
Here you go friend, just study up on how to build pcs before starting. It really isnt that hard. This build should play most if not all games out right now.
I mean, personally (and if price isn't a real limiter I suppose) I would recommend getting a prebuilt to upgrade later as sort of a base on how everything fits together.
Takes a lot of the stress of a first build out of "what happens if I fuck up this 700$+ collection of technology."
That's just me. What do I know though, I bought a prebuilt
But hopefully, with buying a new psu, you can have an idea about what cords and plugins go where. Takes a relief off the mind. Also you can get a modular psu
I don't know/heard anything about locked mobos, sounds like it would suck though.
I really want to buy my own computer too, but my knowledge on them is next to zero. I don't want to buy a prebuilt either because I don't want to get scammed.
Is it hard to learn how to build, and later take care of a computer from scratch?
Don't believe anyone who claims it's adult legos, the first time it is very stressfult. That said it is not HARD to do but knowing you may fuck up thousands of dollars worth of parts with a mistake makes it seem more challenging than it is.
Just buy a prebuilt. 10 years ago buying prebuilt was definitely more expensive than building it yourself, but today the difference isn't much.
Then compare it on pcpartpicker.com
Cbb doing it for you
Most big name pre-builts are indeed scams but you can find something decent on newegg if you don't want to shell out of a bunch of money on a computer you're unsure about building yourself.
