    For GPU i have a plan to buy HD 4770...
  3. yea, you need a quad......

    don't even think about a 710 or a 620...try saving up for a 955 .....

    both of those CPU's are really considered low-end/bargain cpu's..... if you want GAME then don't skimp on the CPU.....
  4. Usually for playing games the PhenomII x3 710 would give slightly better performance. I would suggest that you spend an extra $10 and get the PhenomII x3 720 though.

  5. You'll be wasting a quad on a 4770. If your planning to game at high res/settings go for a 4870 minimum.
