It has been 4 years since I built my last rig and it is now time for a new one since my computer just died R.I.P. I do not know much about hardware which is why I am asking for your help with a good spec. I prefer keeping windows xp pro for my OS because it rocks and I heard people have had a lot of problems with gaming while using Vista. However, if I need to get the vista 64 bit OS to get the most bang for my buck, I will. A system that can run CoD4 at 100 fps while on high settings at 1280x1024 resolution is what I want.
I think so... When I was running only 1 8800 GTX and a dual core CPU at 1920x1200, I was usually getting above 100fps with everything set to full. The 8800GT isn't quite as powerful as the GTX but at only 1280x1024 I think you should be hitting your target reasonably easy.
