This is the first time I'm gonna build a computer and I'm not sure if it will be good enough to play all the new games. I've always wanted gaming pc and now is my chance.
This is what I've come up with so far and it looks pretty good to me :ange:  :

- Cooler Master HAF Mini 922 Black <- Case
- Silver Power SP-SS650 650W <- Power supply
- ASUS P5Q Deluxe, P45, Socket-775 <- Motherboad
- Intel Coreā„¢ 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz Socket <- Processor
- XFX Radeon HD 4890 1GB "xXx" GDDR5 <- Graphics card
- Corsair XMS2 Xtreme Performance 4 GB <- RAM
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB <- Hard drive
- Samsung DVD-burner SE-S224Q, 22x < Burner
- Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit Sv Single <- OS

Well, this is it. If you got anything to add or a tip or something.
And one thing: I live in Sweden and the prices can be a bit different to the other contrys, but if you know something that will work better in the system, please tell me ;)

Nice LGA 775 rig but, would you like to stick with Intel or see the pII top rig for the same price as that one?

LGA 775 died out a while back. Still have good cpu's just, theres no upgrade path with them.

Depends on what resolution and gfx card.

a good gfx card like the 4890 will be really good at more higher resolutions.

I'm looking for preformance and if you can suggest a system that is as good as this or even better for the same money, then sure I'm interested. :D

This build will allow you to play games at mid. to max. settings at a monitor resolution of 1900x1200

Thanks! Can it run Crysis with all very high settings without lagg? That would be awsome! :D  Thanks for the suggestion :sol:

I was getting the same build there obsidian just, different case, got caught up in work.
August 10, 2009 7:20:44 PM

probly crysis very high 4xaa average sceen 1980x1200 bout 45-50fps on your screen 1680 1050 should do everthing very high 4xaa should reach above 60fps an lag is under 25 fps
August 10, 2009 7:23:03 PM

i use one similar to that for work an gaming also the 945 but using 2 4890 toxic's with a antec 1200 case
August 10, 2009 7:24:14 PM

Crysis isnt such a great game on multiplayer. I only liked it in the beginning on single.
August 10, 2009 7:26:36 PM

interesting fact tho crysis at 1980x1200 has a gig of data per frame
August 10, 2009 7:50:55 PM

@obsidian, no ATi card can play Crysis with 4xAA at a decent frame rate, let alone at 45fps.

he'll probably get 25fps.
August 10, 2009 8:08:29 PM

that bench mark was done on older tech an older drivers
August 10, 2009 8:19:32 PM

^ it is however biased, the GTX 285 beats the 4890 by a considerable margin in Crysis, and look at this bench by tweaktown, it's run with no AA and the 4890 still only gets 26fps average, while the 285 gets 37fps average.


this shows the same story but with 2xAA


August 10, 2009 8:40:26 PM

i could also say your review is biased
August 10, 2009 8:44:58 PM

^ well Guru3D also said 29fps at 2xAA, so that's 3 reviews against one.
August 10, 2009 9:00:06 PM

now we could go back an forth here but 4890 owns 3dmark06 in every way yeah maybe nvidia maybe ati but we letting brand loyalty get in the way have you even owned a ati? guess not but i have 2 4890s wich work perfectly i been through 4850 4670 right back too 800x but i've also had nvidia quite a few 1 series but this is bout a card jus let it at that
August 10, 2009 9:10:53 PM

love you.
