    Basically I currently own a Laptop which has 32 bit, low memory and is not that great for gaming.
    My PC can't run anything not even minecraft or photoshop without it Powering down after 5 minutes.

    Anyway I want to upgrade to a 64-bit gaming PC so I can play games like Tomb Raider and GTA 5 etc.
    Any suggestions of what I should get? I want to get a Desktop not a laptop this time since I never use my laptop around the house.

    I'm new to finding good PC's so some tips would be nice

    Best word of advice, know how much you can spend and build one, Amazon probably has the best competitive prices. Anything bought in a store might sound good at first but it will be low end junk. Build it, know your PC in and out 100%

    I'm in the states if they have prime over in aus you will save money in the long run then 99% of PC parts will be free 2day (I just want to add I have no relationship with Amazon just a loyal customer for car parts and electronics lol)

    PCPartPicker is a lifesaver for finding good parts cheap. Either make an account and try it out or PM me and we can try to throw something together
