Well, the cheapest way to get a gaming PC is to build one yourself. And you can definitely build yourself a pretty decent one for €1,000. My PC, which is a couple of years old now, cost $800 to build. It uses a q6600 quad core, a Radeon 4850 for graphics , and has 8 gigs of RAM. By no means is top of the line, but it can still handle most recent games fairly well on high settings.

Are you comfortable building your own system? Or do you want to get a prebuilt one?

Here's something I picked out: http://secure.newegg.ca/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=18219685. Plenty of power to play pretty much every game out there, even BF3, on pretty high settings. It all comes out to around $1100 CAD, which is about €850.

Hope this helps.

Have you ever built a LEGO set? Building a computer is just as easy, it's just bigger and more useful, haha. I'm sure you could build it. Plus, it's much cheaper to pick the parts and build it yourself rather than buying a pre-built PC.

Every component has a different cable. It's impossible to get them mixed up unless you're using a motherboard with an 8-pin CPU power connector with a video card that uses an 8-pin connector as well. Usually there's one 24-pin motherboard connector, one 4-pin CPU connector, 2 SATA connectors, one 6-pin PCIe connector, and a few front-panel connectors. If you were to buy the parts from the link I sent, you'll have to use one 24-pin and one 4-pin for the motherboard and CPU, two 6-pin PCIe connectors for the video card, and one SATA cable for both the blu-ray drive and the hard drive. You can't mix up which cable goes where, they're each completely different.
