Hey i could use a little help building my future PC i would like to spend under $600 if i could but i could probably bump that up to $650 if needed. My goal is to run age of conan on full or close to full settings with little to no lag. I already have a 550w rosewill power supply, a hard drive, cd drive, and sound card i just need the rest. If any of you would change anything in there please tell me why and what product you would replace it with. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks
AMD X2s are a HUGE no-no right now. Don't even think about getting one. Any Intel chip will kill an X2.
Bring your computer over to my house and sit it right next to mine. Play the same games and do the same programs and tell me if you notice a difference. Please Do It cause I would just love to see your face when you realize you don't see a difference. That is untill you render 3Dmark's bull****
The funny thing is I admire Intel, they are doing a great job, but why the hate towards AMD, like as if they hurt your feelings. They still make awesome chips and they are not that slow, and the price difference.
The simple mention of Crysis would make me push more toward the GTS, with it you will be able to play Crysis at VeryHigh Dx10 ~25FPS under Vista (Just did the benchmark on my machine). But, with a little tweaking, a GT would do a great job as well.
