Default What Computer Company Has Good Quality For Gaming?

Hello all,
I just figured out that my computer has this kind of Trojan. I was running pretty much all of the Anti-virus things my computer has. The main one says there is nothing there and my Windows defender says I have two Trojans so I'm not sure what to do. I'm thinking of buying or building a new one.
Right now I have Intel. Iím not sure which is best like Dell, Microsoft, etc. I need a gaming computer which can also be used as a school work computer. Any ideas?

Six of one, half dozen of the other. I think all the major brands are using pretty much the same set of parts, with the same awful tech support. If you can "build" your own box with a manufacturer (as in pick all the parts you want) then just grab the most tricked out stuff you can and you should be all set.
You might be better off with a local shop though that builds things to order. Maybe more money, but in the long run I think local folks are easier to deal with than the Dells and HPs of the world, especially when your requirements aren't run of the mill.

Well, if by 'gaming' you mean Freecell or Solitaire, then basically any pc will do. HP & Dell are two decent choices for casual users.

On the other hand, if you want something that will run Call of Duty or other fairly new shooters/real-time strategy/MMORPG, then a custom-built desktop is the only way to go. I've built a lot of custom computers and that's my recommendation. Your first build is a little intimidating but there's lots of resources online. I like and recommend Newegg as a supplier. Their prices and services are really hard to beat.

If you're not ready to build your own, look for a local computer store that's been around for a while & talk to them. It will be more expensive, but if something goes wrong you can blame someone other than yourself. Don't waste your time with big-box stores. Their stock is primarily designed for casual home or business use. Good luck!

what I would suggest you to format all the drives of your HDD as there are some files in the cache, surely this will resolve the problem. On the other way if you looking to get a new machine for gaming, graphics card is the most essential part of ur CPU, you can go for Radeon HD7970 with Intel i7.

You can go with Dell if you are a casual gamer. Personally I have bought Alienware in the past for my top end gaming PCs.

Another option is to go with building your own

Hope this helps.

Cool Top Dogs

Dell xps used to rock sometime back.The company is still moving with the times though.They acquired Alienware,one of the top gaming companies out there.Other companies that are specialists in gaming (hence quality) are HP (Voodoo Firebird),Falcon Northwest and Cyber Power.

The best gaming computer is that built by your hands. Of course, it's quality and performance depend on your needs and, the main thing, your budget. If you're going to play the newest games with "heavy" graphics on the highest settings then you need Intel core i7 CPU, a least 8Gb RAM, some good motherboard for this (somewhat like Asus Sabertooth), SSD 128Gb for the operating system and 1Tb HDD, Geforce 670 or AMD Radeon 7970 videocard, good case for this hardware and PSU 650-750W. It will be a cool PC for gaming.

HP is one of the best brands for gaming. I am not sure about Acer, there are different meanings as for them, but generally HP will answer your gaming needs.
