Hello people of /g/, it's my first time posting here and I need advice on a new computer to get. I've had laptops for so long because my parents thought "hurr laptop best cheaper and portable" even though we never took them anywhere anyway so it's time for me to finally grab a desktop. I am still living with my parents and I'm my dad is going to pay half of the computer chipping in $600ish dollars each so my budget is around $1200 but it can go slightly higher if needed for an SSD or something maybe. Living in Australia, all the stores including Harvey Norman and shit are just fucking overpriced as fuck bullshit so I'm looking for a reliable Australian distributing website so far I've only got pccasegear in mind (recommended by a friend) to get a pre built desktop (not too keen to build my own too afraid I'll totally fuck it up or my dad most likely will). So far I've got this in mind, http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=22216 It's $889 and I have a G400, Coolermaster Quickfire Cherry Blue Keyboard and LG E2442V 24" monitor all recommended by a friend. Total of $1188 not including the shipping of like $50. tl;dr > Need a desktop > Not sure if pccasegear is reliable > Is what I have there worth it for a pre built comp? > Should I get an SSD as well and which one for how much?

>>30002987 I'd prefer it prebuilt since I pretty much have no idea how to build and don't want to fuck it up.

PCCaseGear is probably the best online retailer for computer parts in australia. Just buy whatever it is you linked and ignore the neckbeards of /g/ telling you to build your own.

>>30003181 Thanks for your reply, mate. I was told that PCCaseGear was probably the most reliable and best to get from I just wanted to ask here because I heard it's good a place to ask for help with a computer. Since you say I should buy what I linked, should I also get an SSD?

>>30003218 >>30003230 If you can up the budget to $1300 excluding postage, then get this >http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1411_1446&products_id=2 2290

>>30003230 >>30003218 Well this is the next one up from that one. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1411_1446&products_id=22288 To be honest I'm not entirely sure what is good or not which is why I came here for help. So yeah this is a $130 increase. >>30003250 So yeah my budget is pretty much $1300 but that includes everything else including the mouse, keyboard and monitor. I have a decent set of speakers though already so no need for those and I have headphones and a mic too.

>>30003250 Well I took a look at that and my friend told me that it would cheaper to buy the parts separately and build it myself at home because it's easy. I'd like some conformation on this because that setup is like $100 less if I build it myself. Do I need the 3GB Radeon though it's like $300 on it's own, could I trade it down? What about the processor and other thing? Any suggestions, thanks for the replies so far guys.
