Hi,

I'm wanting to buy a new gaming PC as mine isn't very up to date or good. However, I don't know what's good in the gaming PC world.

I would like to have the freedom to play most games on the market such as GTA V etc... I don't really want to be restricted at all so that's quite important to me when buying a new PC.

If anyone has any good suggestions for a new PC which has good gaming capabilities for modern games with high graphics levels I would like to be able to play games like GTA V online with maximum graphic potential and also have the ability to record if possible with good frame rate.

Any help is appreciated and I would prefer a PC over a laptop

Thank you!

Would you be prepared to build one? or looking to buy prebuild?

I don't really know anything about building them so I don't think I'd really be able to build one sadly

If you want my advice, research about building one for a couple of hours today. You'' save a lot of money from the outset. Plus the experience is kinda handy in life.

Then once you made up your mind post here.

Using the following form: Forums/t=6751631/pc-building-rule...dvice.html

But research it anyways, regardless of what people recommend. Nothing worse than buying stuff blindly.

Sure, it will play every game at 1080p high/ultra no problem.
