    for $400, i would get an fx cpu, and if you live near a micro center, they are selling the fx 8320 for $99. and also i would get a gtx 750Ti. the mobo doesnt matter too much as long as you arent overclocking. for the psu, get a good quality 450-550watt, and with leftover money another 4gb ram :P

    sorry man my motherboard is Hp piece of junk and it comes with the tiny case. I need new motherboard and case I have been looking at asrock mobos
  3. that is fine, and asrock, asus, gigabyte, and msi are good brands, and almost any atx case is fine.

    so you think i could run planetside 2 on medium / high with that setup?
  5. i have never played planet side 2, so idk. you could try goggling some benchmarks though.
