Okay so I've never had a gaming PC before, up till now I only used my computer for surfing the web and simple tasks but lately it's been having issues even doing that, freezes up sometimes just from loading Vgchartz. I decided it is time to get a new computer, lately I've been hearing about how a gaming PC is a good investment if you're interested in gaming because it can do games AND everything else I really need.
My problem is I'm new at this and I've been looking around on sites like Bestbuy, Fry's, Amazon for a computer but there is so much options and I'm not sure what I need, so I was hoping the PC community here can give me some much needed advice.
My budget is around $800 so my first question would be if that is even enough to buy a PC that I need, would be nice to run games smoothly and in their full settings but that's probably asking a lot.
Here is one computer I found on Fry's that is in my budget, I don't really know what all this means but was curious if it may fit my needs or not and if it's a good buy. HP Pavilion Elite HPE-470f Desktop PC, AMD Phenom II 1090T Six Core Processor, 8GB Memory, 1.5TB Hard Drive, ATI HD5770 1GB for $759.
So yeah, advice would greatly be appreciated, would hate to spend this much money on something that will not work, thanks.
