  1. The thread title pretty much explains my need. I want a gaming system, but I can only spend up to $1000. Im not tech savvy, and i dont know what i want...it just needs to be good, for cheap. Can anyone help me out? I know that isnt much info..And i also dont know if this is the forum im supposed to post this in..

    You can either build your own or buy a pre-built one. Building your own would be the way to go and you'd get the best parts for your money, besides getting them cheaper individually and with warranty on every individual part. There are lots of guides available all over the net for building a pc. If you want to build one, here is a recommendation.
    [*]intel core 2 duo e8400 lga775 3.00ghz 6mb cache 1333mhz fsb dual core processor - bx80570e8400a - $212.99 + free shipping

    Nice build.

    I also have to say that this new formatting crap is making everything look 2X worse.
