The Bargain Shoppers Guide to PC Gaming

The Koalition writes: "Everyone knows that a "top-of-the-line" gaming PC is often equivalent to the price of several gaming consoles, that's just a result of it all if you buy one pre-made from popular retailers. However, you can also get on for a much cheaper price if you do your research and/or build it yourself. But we digress already, as that is not the point of this post; instead, we're here to tell you how to be a PC gamer after you have the rig, and we're here to tell you how to be a bargain shopper and get games for cheap. PC gaming is all about being smarter and better than everyone else, it is the Master Race, after all.

As you can tell, we will not be condoning pirating or downloading games illegally, we believe in supporting developers and publishers for their work, which involves you know, paying for their product.

Pretty much everyone will know at least one person who can build a PC for them, if they feel they would not be able to do it themselves. I don't have any friends, yet i can think of about 3 people who could put a PC together for me.

It really is a great investment, and opens you up to a whole new world of gaming.

Built my first desktop pc this winter. It's silly easy. Just watch a couple of youtube videos.

The use of the word "building" makes it sound like there's more skill to it than there is. Your basically just plugging about 8 components that will are made to be stupid-proof by only fitting into the right holes. What takes the most time by far, is researching all your parts and deciding how much you want to spend. That and cable management (if you want to make it look nicer on the inside). By doing it yourself, you'll save $500-1000 and are able to get higher quality parts that with pre-built systems.
