I'm looking to build a pc or just buy one pre-built that can handle playing WoW,SC2,and D3 on High settings. Also that can stream or fraps videos here and there with decent fps.

Edit: Had a couple people say alienware,and one told me to check out cyberpowerpc.com. But heard alienware was bad for the price and never heard of the other.

alienware is for rich dumb people, websites like cyberpowerpc will also add on costs for putting together your pc, the best / cheapest option is to buy the parts yourself and put it together, its extremely simple and you will get the most out of your money

It is extremely simple for you but for people who are not that familiar with computers rather let them put together. And yea dont go for alienware overpriced garbage. I would like to help but what is your budget and do you have any experience with putting a computer together to avoid the cost for it?

I'd like to stay under $2000. I never messed with a computer outside installing wow/sc2/etc and playing games.

you can easly get a decent gaming computer for $2000. Buy good parts and get a friend to build it for you, or something.

$2000 is even pretty expensive for high tier gaming computers, you can build one for much less

http://www.arenajunk...m/109-comptech/

poke around here a bit for some resources, there's always threads of people wanting to build a new PC, if there's none that suit your needs then it'd be a good place to ask

Definitely get the parts yourself. If you need to pay someone to put it together, you're just going to have to bear with the cost of that, hopefully you know someone who will do it for cheap. Would be even better if you knew how to do it or have a friend who does. Two grand will get you a nice high end PC. The brunt of your cash is going to go towards a processor, motherboard, and video card (and maybe a chassis if you want it to look badass...you can get some fucking nice ones for around 100-150 bucks)

Go for any i7 quad processor, see what kind of speeds and durability they've got and hook yourself up with one. If anyone tells you to go with AMD, you should just kick them and take a big shit on their chests. Take a motherboard that's compatible with that processor (obviously) and I don't know if you prefer Gforce or Radeon but you can also get a pretty sweet video card on your budget so check out those respective websites. Power supply I recommend you get one around ~1000 watts if you're planning on maybe getting 2 video cards or a whole bunch of HDDs/a couple of CD burners etc. 750 watts will be okay if you're not going to go over the top with the PC, and they're pretty inexpensive if you want to get a new one later.

CD burners and stuff like that it doesn't matter what you go with, I prefer Samsung, but that's just me. I've got a black edition 7200RPM 1 tera Western Digital HDD on my PC, which ran me about $100 as well if I remember right. You have a lot of options with internal HDDs, Buffalo doesn't disappoint, Seagate make good quality ones, but Western Digital is my number one choice.

If you're planning on getting a legit Windows 7 Ultimate or whatever, that's going to cost you.

So yeah, I don't think there's much else? Let me know if you've got any questions.

think $2000 will be a bit overkill for just to play wow,sc and diablo on ultra setting.

1000w is way overkill for 2 graphics cards, 750w is enough for 5-10+ hdds and 2 680s

If you want to fraps I would recommend getting two HDD.  If you want to spend all your budget and are an enthusiast I would recommend getting an SSD... Intels are the best for reliability.  Don't get less than 120gb.  Then get a normall HDD for frapsing/storage of media/games u don't play a lot.  I have wow and battlefield 3 on my SSD and starcraft on my HDD as I never really play it.

I hear the 2500k is still better just because the new one runs super hot if you OC.

They don't perform better stock, but they're way more overclock friendly (that's why I typed /2500K in the list, and it shouldnt even be an issue since I added a decent cpu cooler to both builds)
