I'm building a gaming pc for my father and he is currently playing mw2 on celeron 1.80 ghz no lag low settings I was planning to buying a G2020 2.90ghz would that play mw2 at least on meduim settings?
Celeron 1.80 ghz
550 watt power supply
Ati radeon hd 5450 graphics
Other than upcoming hardware, there's not much else to discuss from Intel this month. As usual, prices remain steady with the exception of a $20 drop on the Pentium G2120 and a $5 reduction on the G2020, neither of which are processors that I would consider to be good options for gaming.
By upgrading in small increments, you're wasting more money than you would if you just got an i3 off the bat. The 5450 is probably holding you back as well.
A little bit. I would save up and get a i5 or amd fx 8350. With the new consoles the optimization for threading might go up. It's not worth it. Really you should just save up and get a whole new computer, wait a few moths until haswell comes out and an i5 3570 or i5 2500 will be cheaper, wait until the hd 8xxx or GTX 7xx and the hd 7xxx and GTX 6xx will be cheaper.
Thx for all the help my pc is an i5 with 6770 graphics card this pc is only
For my dad to play at night got all the parts from my friends
