Hey guys. I am looking for a new computer and came across a couple of sites that I thought you guys may want to be aware of in deciding on making a new PC. One site, as it says, is a part picker. It helps on budget and integration of units. The second site is of builders and modders of PC's. The work has already been done and shown for results.

A community for PC builders and modders. Show your build to the world, find inspiration for your next rig, and compete in various contests to win awesome prizes!

 

Both sites are displaying PC builds. IMO both are great time savers in decision making. I thought I would pass this along to you guys.

I used to work in the computer industry, and I decided that when I got home from working and wanted to game, I just wanted my computer to work.  So I don't overclock or anything, which means a bought PC is just fine.  So with the high cost of video cards, I just bought a premade one and made a few changes to it to make it what I wanted.  I bought this one.  https://www.amazon.c...1?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Added a good monitor and some m.2 and NVMe ssd's and I am good to go.

Good websites both.  I used these and then built my upgrade by making wish lists on Amazon and NewEgg.  In general, I found better deals on Amazon.  

 

Check out the Amazon warehouse.  I got a 1050Ti Overclocked graphics card and more recently a cable modem from there for way less than retail, and I mean way less.  Both were in brand new condition.  People return stuff all the time unused but they did open the box.  

 

The reviews on these two sites don't suck either.  A lot of casual gamers play similar games and you don't always need the expensive i7's and 1090Ti's to get a great system.
