Post what your thinking of getting, whether it be pre-built, or if you want us to plan something out for you, we can check/do it.

pre-build, because i don't know how to put a pc together.

it would be helpfull for me if you could tell me what you use for example because i don't want to buy a 2000 euro desktop which isn't any good

BTW, thanks already for the reply :)

this is the one i want to buy, i don't know if it is any good (MSI Nightblade B85C-205EU)

You can get a friend to build you a PC or your local computer shop, it'll be cheaper than pre-built and will also be fully customisable to suit needs. P.S. PC & desktops are the same thing, if you mean PCs or laptops, PCs will be better.

I'll see if theres something good thats prebuilt for ya though.

This is directly from Rockstar:

Recommended specifications:
OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)
Memory: 8GB
Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
HDD Space: 65GB
DVD Drive

I would recommend 16GB of RAM and at least a 3GB video card, preferably 4GB.

@Kilyin thanks for the help man, stupid i didn't thought of that, going to follow you on YT too :)

NP, the computer you linked looks okay, but I'd up the RAM to 16. As Starmix said though you'd probably save some money building the equivalent yourself. Thanks.

@Starmix yeah the problem with this is that i live in belgium and that there are practically no computer shops here,....

and thanks for looking around for a pre-build, really appreciate it

@Kilyin thanks man, how much do you think the whole setup will cost?

Building PCs is pretty idiot proof now and you could look up some tutorials on youtube, etc, if you decide to go that route. Just don't shuffle your feet across the carpet before you touch the electronics or use a static wristband. ;)

I cant really remember any good PC shops, tried asus but remembered they barely make whole PCs nowadays.

I can recommend the 2 builds that I chose from though (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/lcpdUnit21/saved/), you'd be best telling me a price point if you want 'better' (in £ preferably)

Building a computer is also quite simple, everything comes with guides on what to shove what into.

Jesus christ! Give me a loan! (jk)

I'll pretty much be getting no compromise PC build then.

@xozer I saw that, thanks again. I don't know how much 2-3 thousand pounds is, but if you can afford it, spending extra money on better parts isn't a bad thing. Go with the 16GB of memory and a top of the line video card, like a 980ti or 980.

3 thousand pounds is equivalent to about 4500 dollars.

@xozer, do you need a disk drive for anything?
