I've recently been looking at some gaming rigs under $1,000, and have narrowed down the list. Which of these would you recommend?

Number 1: Bad motherboard chipset. It also has water cooling (for what?)


Number 2: Memory speed is not listed, so probably something very slow.


Number 3: Again memory speed is not listed. 260X Crossfire is very strange choice.


Number 4: Memory speed still not listed. CPU better than numbers 1-3. However motherboard chipset is bad.


Number 5: Same CPU as on number 4. However PSU is very low wattage, 32 GB memory is mostly useless for gaming and GPU is very weak.


Impossible to recommend any of those. If I really have to, buy cheapest (number 5) and replace PSU and GPU with something better.

Wait for pascal gpu. which will be released this year. It ensures 2.5x better performance per watt.
