Best new computer per buck for new year?


5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Since Boxing Day deals are on, I am planning on putting together a new desktop computer and passing my current one to my partner. I have roughly put aside 800 USD (including monitor) but if it will make a big difference for performance/buck I can go a bit higher. 

I am trying to get best performance per buck, would someone who has good understanding of computer parts and prices be kind enough to give me some advice please?

Thanks and happy new year!

I cant think of anything for 800 dollars. A single 1080 is over 600 with tax. I really hope there are some big sales coming up

I dont am more than happy with a regular monitor and directing my $ more towards other hardware like CPU or graphic cards for best performance :)

Use this as a guide and go from there. The Exterminator might be a good starting point for you, though you should think about an SSD to help with load times. I can't go back to HDDs now. Regarding those builds, I will advise to stay away from the Deepcool Tesseract case they recommend. Got it for my brother in law's build and was not pleased with the quality.

Good luck!
