Good cheap gaming desktop?

#1Nex-Gen63759Posted 11/10/2013 10:45:35 AM
I was looking in to buying a cheap gaming desktop because I'm on a budget and I'm more of a console player right now.

I was looking around and saw CyberPowerPc and was wondering if these PCs are reliable enough to buy.

Also what's a cheap monitor for 1080p?

Also cheap as in under $800.

good desktop =/= cheap desktop

I asked about an $800 build and someone suggested this to me. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1YETs
Think I'm gonna watch those parts or similar for cyber Monday.

$800 is plenty for a decent Desktop. I personally don't trust CyberPower or it's sister company, Ibuypower. If you are willing to buy the parts individually and put them together, I'll help with that. Otherwise, for picking out prebuilts, somebody else may help you find one better.

Just put something together yourself. Instead of buying a crappy pre-build, you can actually put together something really decent for $800. That is a pretty good starting budget.
