Want help upgrading/building a new computer? PLEASE LOOK HERE


If you are looking for help building a new computer please copy and paste these questions into a new thread and answer each one. When answering each one do it to the fullest as that will give you the best potential on getting good feedback. If you live outside the USA please say what website you would like to buy from (even if it isn't in English).

1. Are you building this computer yourself or having one built for you (Like HP, Alienware, or even a small shop)?

2. What is your budget and does that include shipping/taxes?

3. Where do you live (Please list town, state, and country)?

4. What do you need this computer to do (like gaming, Photoshop, and so on)?

5. What parts will you need for the computer? List what parts specifically, saying you need everything will not do.

6. Are you reusing any parts for this computer? If so say what parts (make and model).

7. What kind of monitor/resolution do you have or want to get to use for the computer?

8. Do you have already have a OS or do you need one? What OS is that?

9. What are you looking for the motherboard to have feature wise? Like SLI, Crossfire, Firewire, USB 3.0, Sata 6.0 Gb/s, and so on.

10. Any plans to overclock the CPU or GPU?

11. What time kind of time frame are you planning on ordering these parts?

If you are looking for reviews on different computer parts I recommend Hard OCP, Anandtech, and Guru 3D as good sites for that.
