ill do that right now. but hey, how powerful is this? http://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberpowerpc-gamer-ultra-desktop-amd-fx-series-8gb-memory-500gb-hard-drive/1295083.p?id=1219047435148&skuId=1295083&ref=06&loc=01&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=1295083&extensionType=pla:g&s_kwcid=PTC!pla!!!80819842999!g!!52599690919&kpid=1295083&k_clickid=4b7bdbb1-f730-ba29-3259-00001bbd431f&kpid=1295083 can I use that?


Do not buy. Overpriced and underpowered.


That would be an expensive paperweight.

Seriously if you are on a budget (hell even if you aren't!!!) BUILD IT YOURSELF!!! I assure you I wouldn't be saying you can do it if you can't. If you have ever played with lego before, you can build a PC


alright then. ill get the stuff you got. thanks. you sure ill be able to piece this together?

Don't get a prebuilt.
Almost everyone in the thread has been saying it.

I'll repeat again.
Do a bit of research before posting.
There is no one perfect build,
and I'll remind you again.
Play with pcpartbuilder.


This, it will literally take you 40 minutes to build it. Then 30 minutes to install the OS. You know you're getting a good deal.

I do. and im glad I don't need another rmonitor. that way the pc im using now wont be useless. ok. how will I set it up? lets say I put it together... then what?


Well since you won't have a dvd drive (if you did the build I posted or you can buy one for $20 and add it in) you just need to make a usb windows flash drive boot. google it, I had no idea how to do it and in 10 mins I was of to the races getting it set up. Just use the disk you likely have on your existing PC and make it there. Then boot it onto the new PC through the MOBO BIOS.


the one you have doesn't have the dvd drive? you had to manually enter it in? and if you did, how do you get blu ray? bot that it matters. as before, ill use my consoles

That system will last you a good 4 years, even longer if you don't mind lowering settings.

My brother has a similar PC, a little cheaper tho. It cost him $400 to build and he can run every game on Very High/Ultra settings @ 1080p/30fps.

If you don't have a DVD drive all you do is use a USB drive to create a Bootable Windows USB drive.

Ive pretty much made a decision to go through with it. but, will my controller work with any of these games on pc? and what are some exclusive pc games anyway? something not multiplat?

Any controller can work with any game given the right software.

With a 360 controller you can expect to play almost any game even PC exclusives.

The only PC exclusives that you really can't/don't want to use a controller for are RTS games.
