Recommended Posts



I got $1000 to buy a new PC... I'm not an expert, but i am an addict pc gamer (my fav. is Arma Assault and Call of Duty 4)

I really don't know all the items that i need to buy for a new Pc... but i have some ideas


Intel core Quad 2.4 Ghz Q6600


RAM 2 Gb DDR 2

HD 7200 RPM SATA 160Gb

DVD Burner 20x

Nvidia 1024mb 8500 Gt

Monitor LG 19" LCD

UPS 600va Sonex


I know these is not a super PC... but i really need to know what kind of stuff i need to buy, to have something decent with that money.

Forget about that 8500GT. You won't be able to game like you would want.


If you have the money for, buy an ATI HD4870, or a NVidia GTX260. If it's a bit too expensive, there is also the ATI HD4850.


Also, you need a PSU, not a UPS. Have a look at our recommended PSU list. Personally I would go with a Corsair HX 620W or a OCZ StealthXStream. PC Power & Cooling also make really good PSUs.

Here are my thoughts:


Q6600 is good. So are E8400-E8600.

Go with P45 motherboard if you can. Gigabyte, DFI, and Asus are popular around here.

2x1 or 2x2GB of DDR2 1066 from a reputable manufacturer (OCZ, Corsair, Patriot, G.Skill, etc etc)


Get a TSST SATA DVD burner...sometimes they're listed as Samsung, sometimes Toshiba.

Get a 8800GT if you can fit it in your budget (they're ~$100) or maybe a 9800GT (they're pretty much the same). I wouldn't bother with anything over 512MB of VRAM.

Not sure about the monitor or the UPS.


EDIT: I agree, wholeheartedly, with The_Smith on the PSU's.
