1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    So my ex gf broke my fairly decent acer laptop that I used for gaming, and I have been using an 8 year old pos dell for months now.

    I am in the market for a value gaming machine either laptop or desktop.

    I'd like to get something for around $800 but id be willing to spend up to
    $1000. Anyone have any experience I've been out of the market for a while.

    I saw some ibuypower ones and stuff but Idk if they are cheap and crappy.

    thanks in advance!:icon_ banana:

    Cyberpower is not the way to go. Like ^^^ said, Build it yourself. It is more difficult to build a model airplane then it is to build a desktop.

    There are thousands of guides out there that will show you EVERYTHING from A-Z. Not to mention the pride you will feel from the fact that you built it yourself.

    And this is the truth, you can almost get a computer with twice the specs by building it yourself, than by purchasing a pre-built one.

    If you do decide to DIY, feel free to pm me and I will offer any assistance I can. :)

    Build your own ordering parts from newegg. It's lets you save money on labor/mark up so you can buy better hardware.

    Edit: Just made a list of good stuff for gaming and it came out to $976. =P
