  1. One of the best ways to get into PC gaming, although a little scary sometimes, is custom building a PC. To put the savings into perspective, that ironside you're looking at would cost only $300-400 if you built yourself. You can get much better systems for cheaper, and it's so easy now a days that you can watch a YouTube video and have your first system built in an hour. If you need part recommendations or anything else, don't hesitate to ask.

  3. I understand that it's cheaper but for my first gaming computer I wanted it professionally assembled will this computer be capable of running modern games ok?
  4. In all honesty though with the ridiculously long waiting period i prob choose build it my self but they are a small company with a 20 percent restocking fee
  5. I am not too much into gaming, but on first sight:
    - I would go with better CPU, something from i5 series.
    - H81 was a great motherboard couple of years ago.

    On the other side - it's not too common to see five years labor, and three years parts warranty.
  6. You can find many videos discussing pros and cons on YouTube and the like, and honestly I haven't run into many problems through 20-25 systems. Also if you want to play anything modern that little Pentium won't be able to hack it. If you want good price to performance I've heard that the I3-4170 is a stout chip. I have a couple friends running GTX 960's just fine with them.

    Find a friend that has build computers, get together with him/her and buy some parts (plenty of suggestions here) and put the thing together. There is just a bit too much of a mark-up on gaming systems from OEM vendors vs buying parts. Only catch is that you have to buy a license of Windows that most builds don't account for, that adds about 100 to the cost.

    The other side of that, is that some people that say they can help you, will make things worse LOL I just fixed a PC a friend of my son's friend "built" with help from another kid, it was not booting. When I took it apart I found that the CPU was not in the socket, the heatsink was not tightened down (actually that probably saved the CPU from being totally destroyed LOL), hard drive was held in by one screw and was wobbly in the case, motherboard was held in by half the screws it was made to use, there was a loose screw in the case. CPU pins were bent but luckily only half of one row and not fully. So ask whoever volunteers to help if they actually know what they are doing :)
