It's that time of year. Decided my computer is outdated for most of todays hot games (ie: Oblivion, FEAR, Farcry, etc)
Currently I have a Celeron D 2.66ghz, 60 ghz hd, 6600gt AGP, asus p4pe2-x, etc.. You get the point.
Was wondering if this rig would be good enough to play Oblivion at almost max settings if not max?
1 NEC 16X DVD±R DVD Burner Silver IDE Model ND-3550A - OEM
ATX Computer Cases
1 COOLER MASTER Wave Master TAC-T01-E1C Silver All Aluminum Alloy ATX Mid Tower Case without Power Supply - Retail
Monitors - CRT
It's very good but I recommend a 10,000 RPM 150GB Raptor because they run blazingly fast Everything else looks fine but later, you might want to raise to 2GB and a 500W+ power supply because all your other stuff are killer but 1GB is kinda beginner. :idea: But those system specs are enough to run at max settings with amazing graphics. You do not NEED 2GB but I think you should get it for other stuff than gaming such as browsing, multi-tasking side-to-side with your dual-core processor not to mention newer games will need 2GB (I think) and already BF2 requires 2GB to run at HIGHEST settings. (which you will want to do later)
The bit I like best is the CRT monitor, they are imho still far superior than all but the most stupidly priced LCDs for games and films
lets see the TFT fanboys run games on a 21" screen in 2048x1536 for under £500
Oh, and even if they manage that I'll then be able to run in 1600x1200 for games that dont support 2048x1536 without horrid scaling, and if I buy a cheap CRT I wont be stuck with horrid 'lets make both numbers over 1000' non-4:3 resolutions like 1280x1024
