  1. I kinda knew posting this would result in a bunch of people giving me ways to try and convince him, I don't need help convincing him I need help finding an actual pc.
  2. by "best" i just mean most powerful, its for gaming (easy to run games like wow, league, csgo, civ5, etc).
  3. I recently posted here asking for help with a pc build around this price point but I need a pre-built option in case he decides he doesn't trust himself building a pc (which he might). Whats the best pre-built you can find for under $500? (I'm really trying to convince him to build one himself)
  4. is amd fx no longer a better value than going core i3?
  5. Hello LTT People, I used to be pretty active on this forum but those days are behind me as are the days when I could throw together a great build at any price-point. I'm building a PC for a friend and here are the parameters: - must be around $450 - doesn't have to be a beast he doesn't play graphically demanding games (he plays wow, league, csgo, civ5, etc), I still don't wait it to be under-powered though (I would list a graphics card but I don't know any recent ones) - build should be reliable, clean looking - build should have an ssd - this is in USD btw
  6. Thanks guys, ill probably go with @Starelementpokes build and use the processor and ram from @ShrDcs build cause I know he doesn't need 32 gigs of ram and an i7 is more for workstation applications, I know an i5 wouldn't bottleneck him at all.
  7. sorry ill edit original post with build purpose, gimme a sec
  8. Hello LTT forum! Its been a while since I was last on here and I've lost touch with the community a little but the time has come to build another PC! This is for a friend of mine in college, this is what he needs: - Under $1,400 - Includes decent monitor - Micro-ATX at most (college dorms are small) - needs ssd and at least 2TB of total storage - needs to look decent (side panel window, no crazy flashy lights) The main purpose of this build is to be a gaming/work PC, don't try to stuff the craziest card possible into it but don't go super weak eit
  9. sorry guess i should have specified, I'm only looking at wireless routers.
  10. haven't been on the forum in a long time but i really need a new router because my current one keeps glitching out. I don't want to spend more than $300, it will be used for mostly common household stuff and minor pc gaming. there is usually around 11 devices connected to it. I just need a few solid suggestions, thanks in advance
  11. looks solid, if I were you i would go with the 250D but its really just personal preference, also I don't know if the 212 evo fits in it.
  12. it doesnt really sound like you have the experience to build a full custom loop correctly, I would reccomend getting air cooled cards
  13. I think its worth it but it really depends on your usage scenario, and the type of games you play, it's a heck of a lot better in terms of productivity. If you have the desk space i would say go for it but whe i pack up and go to college ill be selling my monitors in exchange for an lg ultrawide
