Well i was wondering as i will son buy a pc anywhere from Sept-Jan.
Most likely a gaming computer under 800$ max 1000$ But would love to get a Gaming comp for 800$
But another choice is having an upgrade under 250$
My computer right now plays crysis at medium settings with 20-30fps with physics and game effects on high. (1440x990)
Call of Duty 4 on maxed settings 30-70fps (1440x990)
Here are my specs....
8600gt 512 ddr3 oced to 650mhz core, 810 memory
Pentium 4 3.2ghz (i know old peice of junk)
A peice of junk motherboard - MSI- MS- 7058-i915p-82801FB-PCI express x16-Intel socket 775 LGA
2 Gigs ddr2 667mhz
600 W PSU
The psu that comes with the case is not recommended, would go with a high quality psu or risk losing your investment with a **** psu. Mobo looks fine, video should be fine as well, would recommend the wd 640 it isn't that much more (www.infonec.com)
meh, i can save 100$ more and get a better vid card when e5200 comes out and the prices go down a bit more.
Or wait till Nov or so till i get more money to buy a 1000-1500$ pc, which i probably will do.
Or Just buy this one, whichever works.
