    Hello, I am looking to purchase a new Gaming PC which would support eyefinity and I could run MMO and the latest games on it. Here is what i found, if someone could help me decide which one of those PC's to go for. Note I am willing to spend up to £700 for a pc. When am buying a pc what should I be looking at.

    Thanks

    Have you tried building the pc yourself?

    It's great fun and you can save money too by buying the parts yourself

    firstly, the first pc the apparent 24ghz one... well that i wouldnt trust at all.

    Secondly, itll be cheaper and more rewarding to build your own system.

    look at something smaller maybe an mAtx sized board and you shoiuld be happy, ill look and see if i cant throw together some prices

    It's not too difficult, just make sure you do a ton of research, and think about every step extremely carefully.

    There's nothing worse than putting everything together, powering it up, and nothing happening :lol:

    Definitely get new parts unless there's no other option, that way you can benefit from the manufacturer warranty (1 year minimum) - whereas used parts will probably only be covered for 7 days

    I would highly recommend building your own, you will get more for your money and your system will be easily upgradable, it is actually very easy to build a computer, most people think it is very hard but honestly it is very easy as most things can only go in one way and things slot in together without too much thought and the only things that require thought often are mapped out in your motherboard manual.

    Not that hard, have a look at this video, a bit long but goes through everything thoroughly, part 3 will go through setting it up and making sure everything is up to date:



    We can help with the parts.......also just to clarify why do you need eye infinity?
    Also do you already have the Windows OS.
