Since I'm done with my first year of university, I thought it would be nice to sit back and enjoy some computer gaming this summer. I'm not very computer savy, so I thought I'd come here and ask you guys to suggest some builds. Basically, I want to be able to enjoy games (company of heroes for example) with the highest settings on.
Bear in mind my budget is limited, I can only afford to spend 1000$ on the computer. I'm from Montreal, so here are a few sites I've been working with. They seem to have good prices.
onboard audio is crap. avoid at all cost. get a x-fi, vista drivers are the bomb now. they are good drivers. its been a while and the problems gone. if ur a gamer, get a x-fi gamer so u can tell that ur ally behind u was shotgunned to death. i cant tell that with the onboard audio on my ga-p35-ds3l. unless u have a highend board that doesnt use realtek onboard audio, try to see if the audio quality is good for enough for u. if u have any doubt or not sure, a x-fi will amaze u in playback of music, movie, and especially gaming with eax 1.0-5.0
