    Want a gaming PC (don't even game)

    I haven't gamed in a long time. Honestly I grew out of consoles in 8th grade after I moved away during the middle of some family turmoil and never really picked them back up. I have played the original Call of Duty (2003) on and off over the years as my sole go-to for games. Mainly for nolstagia for my youth but it is still a fantastic game IMO and the no gimmicks of modern COD sells me on it. If I had a desktop I would still be playing it through Steam.

    I got excited over the new XBOX Series X reveal. I initially told myself I would get it on day one and get back into gaming. But then I started thinking how foolish it is to buy a console with good power, when I can simply continue to upgrade a PC with great power.

    So despite me not even gaming, I have the money to spend, and I want something that is truly capable of handling modern games in high quality. At the very least, run the original Call of Duty.

    No troll post. Very srs. I just don't know **** about getting started

    I would say say get a decent gaming laptop.
    Just Asus or MSI top gaming models 17+ inch - you can't go wrong with.
    As you're not geek at all you will benefit a lot more from laptop even if you decide to skip gaming once again.

    you could either build a pc which isn't hard or purchase one built

    you want:

    -to have a SSD (new faster type of storage device instead of Hard Disc Drive)
    -to put a lot of the budget into a CPU and especially the GPU (video card)
    -a gsync or freesync monitor (depending on make of gpu)
    -adequate power supply
    -16GB RAM (8 minimum)
    -peripherals (speakers, mouse, keyboard)

    I would advise agaisnt a laptop, they don't compare to the comfort or capabilities of a desktop

    Usually pre-builds are more expensive and you often pay for the microsoft license which you can get the free version

    Gaming laptop brah here (Acer Helios 300), got one for mobile GPU programming as well as gaming. Decent price for the power but overheating is annoying and SSD and HDD capacity is running out now. Way easier than building a PC if you're lazy but it is obviously more expensive that building your own tower. Also more difficult or straight impossible to upgrade hardware, laptop may start to become outdated after 4-6 years. For reference, I was on amazon for black friday and saw other laptops few years newer than mine with roughly 25% more expensive but with way better specs (top of the line GPU and processor with 144 hz monitor).

    Check out Micro Center if you are near Houston or Dallas. Each store has big gaming PC/laptop areas with tons of great deals on the newest hardware and plenty of associates to ask if you need help.

    Dont build a pc .... buy a custom made desktop where everything is built for you srs.



    and go with 2080TI for your graphics card .... or two. you can prolly run the old call of duty at 4k ultra 60 fps with mods with that.

    If you dont game that much, get a console. At least you can watch 4k blu-rays on those cheap junkers

    or you can build a $500 mini ITX PC that'll smoke a console graphically and better frame rate if you ever decide to play some games

    Also, PC has a million times more exclusives
