New computer



  • I’ve had this computer for around 10 years and it feels like it explode soon, so I was just wondering if anyone knows good websites for ordering or building a new one, I talked to one of my friends and he told me that you can kind of pick specific parts on certain websites then they will build it and send it out to you, just looking for any suggestions people might have who have on this

  • Most people are gonna tell you to build your own (which is the best option).  Newegg is always a decent place to go to for parts.  Another option would be to order directly from the company’s website, this sometimes ends up being the cheapest option.

    Otherwise if you don’t want to risk somehow breaking expensive components when assembling the computer or you just don’t feel like going through all the work of putting one together, you could just buy a premade computer.  Don’t buy alienware.  It’s expensive for its look and you can get a computer with the same performance for a lot cheaper.



  • Yeah, most people use newegg in the US. If you have any questions about current parts, just ask.



  • http://pcpartpicker.com/ good site for rounding up all your parts

    someone will eventually pick out parts for you if you post your budget and needs.

    don’t buy a prebuilt. building a computer isn’t hard.

  • I usually find that picking up parts from a local computer store is cheaper than using Newegg. Shipping is a bitch and who knows who is throwing your precious package haphazardly into a truck. Generally easier to do returns on parts with issues when dealing with a store too, no return shipping/wasted fucking money. Hate to link Reddit shit but: http://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/wiki/builds



  • Sweet cheers all, I will have a fudge about and see what I can get



  • If its not too late, Microcenter’s bundle deals are pretty fantastic if you have a store nearby.

    For example, The popular i7 4790k and i5 4690k are 60 dollars and 40 dollars cheaper respectively compared to Newegg.
    Then you get additional 40 dollars off if you buy with a motherboard.

    But Newegg is usually better for memory and storage.
