    Gaming PC Specs

    Hi,

    I might of posted this in the wrong section but i don't think i have so....

    I'm wanting to build a gaming PC or buy one, i've got about £300 and was wondering if i could build or get a decent one for around that price.

    Thanks.

    Not really.

    At the moment my computer is not up to date for new games and what ever.

    I play a lot of football games such as football manager, championship manager and so on, currently FM07 only works on my laptop and i'd like to buy the new FM13 and play that, but i've already got FM10 and that don't work on my laptop.

    Hi friend,
    There are several things to consider when building a gaming PC. The first is CPU. You need a higher clock CPU to run games at optimal levels. The next most important component is the Graphics Card. A high end graphics card is a must in any good gaming PC.

    If you go the "build-it-yourself" route, make sure that you have a fast enough CPU, PLENTY of RAM (at least 6 Gig; 8 or more is better), and that the video card you purchase will be fully compatible with the chipset of the motherboard that you purchase. I've seen some issues due to a video card (that will mostly work) not being fully compatible with a motherboards chipset. The game would be smooth until there was a lot of fast-paced rendering, then suddenly the game would just crash.

    If anyone knows of a website that can offer ColdFusion help that isn't controlled by neurotic, pedantic jerks* (stackoverflow.com), please PM me with a link.
