Hello,

I am looking to buy a PC that'll play games decently. I am playing world of tanks now on my inspiron 570 and it plays at the lowest settings and is a PITA. Would like to get something and I'm thinking a grand should be a good price point that should get me a solid PC. But there are a hell of a lot of choices so I'm looking for suggestions.

Thanks!

Sorry, forgot the $ sign - it's on dollars - I would be willing to go from $800 to $1200, monitor not included. Looking for a pre-built system.

if its purely for gaming, look at the I5 3570k and the 7850 hd.

But the rest looks good.

I found a refurbished 5770on Ebay for 85 bucks. The card in the compuer above, the 7750 Radeon is on Ebay for $119. Not much more. Is it a decent card?

The 5770 To be fair, no not really. It'll play skyrim on mostly high settings with the HD pack installed with a little overclocking tho. I bought my second one for 40 pounds on eBay. Not sure what that is in dollars. Bout 65 I think. I wouldn't pay 85 tho.
