Do you know anybody that can build it for you? This would be a great opportunity for you Learn how a PC is built!!

Like you said buying a Pre-Built one might be the way to go!

Good Luck with your Dad, Volunteer to do the washing up for a few weeks or something

The option i gave you will be a good gaming rig it will be cheaper but on the side of newer technology which in the long run you can use the components for future systems

If you are unsure about putting it together you can order the parts and have a tech assemble them it would still be a better option then Buying a PREBUILT

They will Jip you and you won't even have close to what we recommended going that way

Higher end cost higher money with the specs that was given to you Intel or AMD will thrash what ever normal run of the mill system will offer you

If you have atleast 800 bucks to spend i would say build intel but in reality you can use the specs i gave you get a high end Gpu and it really wouldnt matter

Only on Benchmarks which are for braging rights not a real world performance marker

ok so from what I read I should not get a new prebuilt computer but instead upgrade the components.

Also neither me or my Dad know how to install a new motherboard. Would it cost a lot of money to get someone else to install the motherboard?

There are all kinds of instructional materials:

You tube videos.

On line tutorials in text form.

Books.

This forum.

Other forums.

You have to decide if you want to go through that experience. Some do and some don't.

If you were able to replace the power supply, you can certainly do the rest of it with a little instruction.

You can inquire at local shops if they will install your chosen parts. Or maybe you can find a neighbor or friend.

But I would try to pick the parts yourself, rather than letting a local shop choose the parts.

Total time for a rebuild: half a day for someone who has never done it before. An hour or two for someone with experience.

I don't know what a shop would charge. I'd say 50 would be fair and 100 would be a rip-off.

The shop probably would not warranty anything, which is fine if it will at least boot up OK. Your warranty would be with the people who made the parts--Intel, Asus, Corsair, whoever.

I would suggest into looking at a pc store and pickiing out your parts
then have them put what you picked out together and install the OS as well

with parts and labor and using some parts from your old system like hard drive etc should run you to much i would give or take a 100 extra for a pro tech to install everything

But if you want to go out all brand new then go ahead get a new HD too that way the old pc can be used as a back up

Forgive me if I missed it in reading the thread, but I didn't see any mention of a new copy of Windows.

I presume that Danielzxzx has an OEM copy of Windows that came with the Acer system. It may not install on the new PC. If it installs, Microsoft may refuse to activate it.

This would be about the cheapest:

Newegg.ca - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - Operating Systems

(System Builder license.) Technically, using it for a DIY system may be a violation of the license agreement, but I'm unaware of any enforcement of that.

After reading all the problems with AMD/ATI there is no way I would use these products, I will stick with Intel/Nvidia products.

My new system was in AU (about the same as US dollars)
i5-3550 $225
Mobo $139
8gb Ram $70

So if you have about 600 to spend, should be no problem getting a decent system (just remember power supply requirements!)

So who is having issues with AMD ATI? The issues are equal i woulnd't say they are all AMD /ATI related i can produce tons of threads on intel Nvidia related issues so please don't pull that here it is what it is some people actually know how to use there systems as oppsed to the problems we see on here any machine no matter what is a luck of the draw
