Need help picking out a solid PC through Best Buy

#11SxmfctPosted 8/24/2013 2:05:28 AM
Hey I once made a joke thread about getting a PC from best buy too!

Does that make us brothers?

If you must go pre-built, go with ecollegepc.

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

Best I can find, Best Buy doesn't make it easy to search things since they don't actually have a filter for video cards aside from "AMD or nVidia".

I second that choice if you MUST buy from best buy. It's got some good gear that will have you playing most of this and next year's releases on high settings.

I still recommend building one, but this isn't too bad of a deal that you would want to shoot yourself later

Nobody has ever thought of you know, buying the Graphics Card separately or anything.

Thats actually pretty decent much better than I was expecting for a best buy pc mind you you could probably save a bit / get something ab it better for the money if you buildt it yourself (ie I would recommend an i5 3570k + gtx 770 over it; basically cut a bit of money away from the cpu and put towards graphics card). I second building one yourself. Also about buying a graphics card separately it is a good option its just alot of pre builts come with crappy psu's that will need to be replaced as well if you want to put a decent graphics card in.

Certainly a thing you can do but on a prebuilt without one to start with (or a really low-power one) you'd usually have to replace the power supply too.

And there may be other cheap parts in there. Like the motherboard? Or what about memory/ram chips? Is there a cooling system?

You have no idea what you are buying at best buy. At least pre-building website like CyberpowerPC or digitalstormonline tell you exactly what you are getting.

You aren't going to find any good prebuilts at bestbuy. The computer might have a locked 4770, maybe 16gb ddr3, 1 tb hdd, and then something like a 630.

This is the most expensive one they have "in store or online."


NVIDIA GeForce GT 645 graphics
Features 1GB GDDR5 video memory for intense imagery. HDMI output offers flexible connectivity options.


It's amazing how they can get away with calling it a gaming PC when the GPU is beyond garbage.
