    and im having trouble on what i should buy.

    i really just want it for gaming, mostly to play SW: the old republic.

    but brands like alienware and falcon have crazy ass prices just for the CPUS.

    im willing to spend like 1200+ on the CPU, monitor, keyboard and mouse etc.

    i know you faggots are nerdy on the computer shit.

    help a ninja out.

    $1200 isn't going to get you a decent computer. Well, in Canada at least.

    For $1200 you can build yourself a pretty awesome desktop tbh.

    If you want a good one, either build it yourself or buy one from a local independent store that will build one for you. Don't get any from best buy or that shit because half the time the power supply is so weak it can't even support a dedicated graphics card.

    And stay way from AMD, get an intel. You're probably better off buying it online too but you'll pay out the ass for it.

    A barebones kit will probably be good enough. You'd need to pick up a few other parts to make a complete computer depending on the kit, but the barebones kit is the way I would go. Take a look at tigerdirect or newegg for some idea on what is available.

    I'm going to buy a barebones kit over the summer and supe it up some. A decent kit will run you under 500$, and the other components you'll need to get it up to par with other gaming machines will run you another ~500$ at most. Unless you go out and buy a 2000$ gpu, in which case you're just retarded.

    If you can work with electronics, build your own from parts or from a kit. Otherwise have a shop build one for you.

    Tiger Direct, Parts Express or Newegg are good parts sources, an Intel processor is a must for any serious uses, and buying a refurbished flatscreen monitor will save a lot of money & usually have a good warranty.

    Building a PC out of of-the-shelf parts is not "working with electronics", it's putting tab A into slot A and tab B into slot B.
