I want to get a gaming PC. Anyone here willing to help me out?

There is a possibility that I may get one for my birthday which is coming up next month. I know it's better to get the parts and build the PC yourself. I just have one general question. I want to be able to play most of my games at a locked 60FPS. That's like my main goal lol. How much should I expect to spend to at least play the vast majority of "this gen" games at that quality?

There are a handful of games that need an extreme system to max out completely, but I'd say 95% of them can be maxed out by a PC that you spend about $800-$1000 on.

What if I wanted to get Mass Effect 2 running at 60FPS/1080p?

Unreal 3 engine games can be maxed easily at 60 fps these days.

Oh... Cool. So if that link that the first poster gave me is legit... I should be able to max it out with that? I want a really good PC,but imma be realistic. There is an EXTREMELY slim chance my parents would pay for one that is 800-1000$.

Didn't read the whole article but i5, 8 GB ram, 660TI, yeah you can easily max with that.

660 TI can max most recent games in fact. Won't be able to max some games coming out this holiday season and early next year, but high is good enough if you can't run ultra.

Here's one I put together for $795. It's not a beast, but it's a good value for the money.

You can always tweak things to your liking, of course, but you start hitting a wall as you go down in terms of minimum components.

You should go with a 7950 for $30 more.
