Im in the UK, I want a PC for Video Authoring and Gaming (Games like Half Life, Halo ect ect)
I was originally going to buy a Dell XPS or an Alienware, until ppl on here told me It would be better to build one.
I Have about £1300 to spend (According to todays exchange rate this is $2,248.65)
I Have No Idea as to what I need to buy. So can anyone here compile a good list of hardware for my budget?
I Will Be Needing a Screen, Keyboard and Mouse with this.
Some Things I Would Like (If you have alternatives that will be better just let me know)
- Dual Core Processor (AMD or Intel??)
- At Least 1GB Ram (Preferably 2gb)
- Latest Graphics Card, 7800?
Is it fairly easy to put together once I have everything? The most I have ever done inside a computer is install a DVD Drive, and all I can rememeber from that is seeing a load of complicated looking chips ect.
Am I jumping into the deep end trying to build a gaming pc as my first?
Finally, would I be better off buying one of these ???http://www.meshcomputers.com/xtreme_series.aspx
