Any advice on first computers?


#1

I’m looking for advice on which gaming hardware I should get (mostly the computer model). I have never purchased anything like this before and was hoping for some help before I made a mistake. I have a low budget and was probably going to buy something used. Any Ideas?


#2

Are you trying to buy a desktop or laptop?

I recommend building exactly what you want. You will save money and get something suited to your needs.


#4

Desktop

Building it sounds good, ill look into that, thanks. Where do you recommend I get parts?

There’s actually quite a few post topics and discussions just like this one. I’d recommend looking through them to get the information that you need.

Good luck. :slight_smile:

@Jocosh, why don’t you introduce yourself to the community by making a post in the Introductions category? Tell everyone a little about yourself and what kind of games you like to play. :smile:
