Is there a pre-built $1000-$3000 desktop I can get that will run AC Unity?

Most locally owned computer shops will let you select the parts and they will put it together for you. You can easily save hundreds this way. Just go in and talk to someone there who is a gamer. Tell him or her your needs and you should be able to put something together for a reasonable price.

I don't know much about PC parts. What parts should I ask for?

EDIT: Forgot to say I want to max games for the next year or 2.

Monitor, case, keyboard, mouse, speakers or headphones.

I meant what exact parts.

Er... 1000 to 3000 is a pretty big gap...

Don't listen the people here TC. IF you don't want to build your own then be happy buying prebuilt. Maybe youll spend an extra $100 or so but its worth it over having a disaster. I've seen a number of poor saps around here get convinced to build a PC, once the parts are ordered theres some nice sob threads on here how the computer doesn't work and its a complete mess or when they finally get it working it blue screens all the time.

digitalstormonline.com is a good prebuilt manufactuer. At your budget youll want to look at the vanquish line, The fourth tier will give you a good gaming machine for a few years, and all you'll need is a video card upgrade down the line to increase your computers life even more.

also ecollegepc.com is a good place.

Theres also players like
ibuypower.com
cyberpowerpc.com

There places used to have a crappier rep but they are getting better, but they are a bit cheaper, maybe youll save $50 bucks or so and they usually have more free extra junk like gaming keyboards/mice etc. Just depends what sales are going on.

Even buying prebuilt you shouldn't have to spend more then $1500 to get a PC that will max 99% of games right now.

So basically, don't build it yourself if you're afraid of learning new things and can't troubleshoot for s***

Are you sure about the Vanquish? I heard i7's are better than i5's.

No point in going with a 4960X when the 5960X exists.
