Really, any specifics, why?


Wal-Mart/Target/etc. = crap computers. They're designed for people who don't know about computers and thus use cheap components that offer little in the way of power. Furthermore, cheap prebuilts on the whole are bad but those are the bottom of the bunch. For $550-$600 you can make your own that is much better. I'm not current on prices but at least a few months ago you could fit a gtx 650ti in a $550-$600 build.

as suggested by the above users, I would stay away from HP LAPTOPS/COMPUTERS.

a lot of my friends who had HP laptops had overheating problems, slow downs, broken power supplies.

My friends experienced all of these problems within their last year of high school all the way to their sophomore year of college. 2007 - 2010.

So keep that in mind. I honestly don't know if HP improve their built quality yet.

Most of my friends nowadays carry cool MACBOOKS : ) or Dell laptops.

Using Wal-mart's iBuyPower "build your own"

Motherboard/Processor:AMD FX-6100 (2 people apparently ordered an AMD FX-4100 but got this instead.)
RAM: 8GB G.SkillRipjaws
Graphics card: AMD Radeon 7770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0

Is this any good? Are they compatible? Graphics doesn't have to be exactly mind blowing.

Ehh, with that budget, your only good option is ordering parts online and assembling the PC yourself. You can build a pretty nice rig even on a $500-600 budget. I'm sure someone here is willing to choose the parts for you.

The problem is do you already have a monitor, keyboard/mouse and a copy of Windows? If not that's going to eat almost half your budget.

Thinking of going with this pre-built iBuyPower from Newegg.

Any good? Good enough to play games on a medium to medium-high setting with no problems?
