Guru3D offers you their bi-annual PC Buyers Guide, this is the 2011 Summer edition. This article brings you a set of recommendations of products we feel are great components to build yourself a nice gaming rig.
Keep in mind that what we write here are recommendations, they can be controversial and subjective for you to read. Be sure to read other buyer guides from other media as well to get a complete overview on what's best suited for your specific situation.
You can select from three categories in this buyers guide. Let's quickly walk through them:
PC Buyer’s Guide – Low End
This is the computer for a gamer on a budget. This is for the person who has an older system (or say a college student with no computer) that needs to be retired but doesn't want to spend a lot on a new computer. This computer will easily handle any of modern games, even when you turn on all the eye candy.
PC Buyer’s Guide – Mid End
This is the computer for the typical gamer. You want to see the eye candy in your games and want to be running at higher resolutions, so you are willing to spend a bit extra to get that performance.
PC Buyer’s Guide – High End
This is the computer for the hardcore gamer. This is for the person with too much money, who must have the latest and greatest technology. You expect your system to not even to blink when you run the hottest games at 1920x1200 and higher with 8xAA and 16xAF. You're also they type who like to upgrade your computer every 6 months.
Every part you want is in there if it's available (meaning if I could find it online; it's in there). Fastest CPU, video card and RAM ect.
