Hey guys, I was hoping to get some advice on trying to buy a gaming PC.

Not looking for top-line specs just something that will run most games for the next 3-5 years and can double up as a workstation as I work from home.

Looking to probably spend between 800-1200 with GPU.

My question to you is where tf do I even find something in stock? What are your go-to places to sign up for alerts on deals and such?

These two builds are something I was looking at but neither are in stock =.=

There's a topic that lists the stores in their perspective country. https://forums.d2jsp.org/topic.php?t=67028064&f=189

I mainly use NewEgg, Amazon, MicroCenter, and BestBuy in that order. Keep in mind, I'd like to think most of us buy computer parts and build it ourselves. We normally do not buy pre-built.

I think pre-built computers are better for you. Other companies that does pre-built would be like Dell/Alienware, HP, Lenovo, etc. If you want more custom options, then try looking at CyberPowerPC, iBuyPower, Maingear, etc.

Thanks. The bolded is good advice. Between work and family, I don't want to take on the project of researching and building a PC. Been looking at some of those websites then checking out if certified dealers have deals on amazon/***

There is endless videos on how to build a PC. I recommend building it yourself, I bought a pre made PC in the past and I regretted it

I would do this if I could get a 3060 or 3060 Ti for a decent price. I don't want to pay as much for a GPU that the rest of the comp would be worth.

I'm seriously considering this atm. What do you think on the bang for my buck?
