    I need a good Gaming PC.

    Fair enough re Bangladesh stores!

    Memory isn't the most important aspect of a graphics card, but it definitely affects performance (particularly with extra visual effects). This is why I highly recommend you get the GTX 970 as your video card (brand is largely irrelevant, as long as you go with a major manufacturer like Gigabyte, MSI, ASUS etc.), as it comes with 4GB, support for the newest technology and is very reasonably priced for the performance - so much so that you may be able to afford two which would set you up to run any game on decent settings for the next 2-3 years!

    Okay. Thanks a lot. The only thing that worries me if these things are available in my country. Or else it will be a pain to buy it from online.
    Btw, you said it will run in decent settings for next 2-3 years. So after that, can't I run the games smoothly? (Even with settings equal to Ps4?) Or you meant I have to play in low settings which is worse than ps4?

    Unless Bangladesh is really behind in technology, I'd be shocked if they didn't have 970's available for sale - it's already been out for a few months and is one of Nvidia's top selling products!

    Don't take the 2-3 years comment too literally, obviously I can't predict what games will look like in the future. New PC games already look better than PS4 thanks to all the extra visual processing it can do (e.g. FIFA15 and NBA 2K15 on PC used the same graphics engine as PS4/XB1, also check out Far Cry 4 for a direct comparison), and a single GTX 970 can handle it with ease. If you want dual cards as suggested in your last build, you'd be pretty hard pressed to find anyone in the country with a more powerful setup than you for gaming.

    Graphics card is the single most important hardware which will affect your gaming performance, much more than say extra RAM/CPU/SSD hard drive etc. so it makes sense to focus on this area.

    Yeah, I visited that site already. I would rather take core i5 if I cant afford. But most probably I'll take two gtx 970 and corei7.

    Not necessary IMO but I think it's safest to have a professional to help. I built my desktop completely on my own with the help of youtube videos but it took hours and hours.

    Of course. You have to buy it separately and put it in one of the bays.

    I bought a bluray drive for $70 but I am sure you can get for cheaper.

    Asus BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS Blu-Ray/
    DVD/CD Writer is $ 45 only. Is it good enough? Or I need a more faster one? Whats the required burning speed to run games smoothly?

    Edit: Oh, even though I'm not planning to buy a new monitor but I still have a question. Is it wise to get an 120 hz monitor? Most of the game wont give me 120 fps even with a monster PC. And I've never seen 120 hz monitor with my own eyes. So I dont know how 60 fps will look in 120hz. I've 75 hz monitor and 60 fps seems lagging terrifically in it. So I guess 60 hz monitor is a good choice.

    And should I take broadband connection or wi-fi? My DSL connection gives ping over 500ms. Can I play Fifa with such ping or I cant connect? I cant play Fifa with my dsl connection btw. But will a broadband/WiFi of 500ms ping can let me play Fifa? Or I need latency below 100?

    don't build a gaming PC just for FIFA, do it if you play other games too. if not, grab a PS4 and play it on that, it's a way better experience.

    a friend of mine built a $2K PC and just plays World of Tanks...


    edit: and yes, 500ms is a lot.

    If you see my targeted hardwares, you can see that I'm planning to play all games in max settings for next 3-5 years. And I actually play different games and mostly games that contains shooting and high gore level like Max Payne 3 and so on. So I rather buy a PC.

    Also the first gaming machine I ever had was PC. I did bought a PS2 before and I regretted buying it. Also I cant handle Gamepads. Born playing with keyboard and mouse. Also I can't play Ps3/2 games in Ps4. And Ps4 is expensive anyway. So spending a bit more money makes sense.

    But what makes me sick in consoles mostly is that I can't use keyboard and mouse. I even play Fifa with keyboard. And I love to mod games which is pretty much impossible on consoles. So I guess PC is my choice. Thanks for the advice :) But I'm PC gamer.

    Stop the nonsense rant! Ever heard of online buying/ordering/and so on amongst other things? I would recommend but i can't get my head around the ones i would usually recommend right now.

    No. You guys can only know if you ever visit my country. I'm saying it because they are trying to convince my dad about system specs that can't even run most of the games. They are telling me that intel graphics cards are good and 2 GB RAM is enough. And saying Gtx 550 is good to run games in max settings. They trying to deceive just like what they did back in 2008. Now think about it.


    For your kind information; I'm only 15 years old and everything I buy are from my dad's money. And its obvious that I can't keep telling to buy PC from online. He doesn't want to buy things from online. So it was good if I could find the hardwares in my country. So, its not nonsense either. I could buy things from online if it was my own money. I didn't need to bother buying from my country then. So please think before you post.

    I always think thoroughly before i post! Well at least your dad has got principles then. I mean i'm the same, you've got to have principles. No other way. And i'm not your dad.

    Good thing I can still force my dad to buy from online as he lost in the deal he made with me. Even though it will be hard to make him shopping online. But I guess I've got no other choice. He agreed before to buy FIFA 15 online. So I guess, I can still convince him [To buy GPU/ CPU online].

    Btw, I've finally got one store that's good. But I can't go there until Tuesday. But I guess I can find the required parts there.
