I bought the 4670, which I understand isn't the greatest card but I heard it will play it. I currently am on the E2160, 1.8 GHz which "fails" on the little system stress test do dad.. thing.. (forgot the website). So I was thinking of getting something cheap but faster than the E2160. Also the BIOS is up to date with that on the website. (Lets say I wanna keep it under $100 for the CPU if I decide to upgrade.) obsidian86 a b à CPUs December 31, 2009 10:59:08 AM the e5200-e5400 range from $65-$90 Name141 December 31, 2009 11:05:01 AM obsidian86 said:the e5200-e5400 range from $65-$90 That seems pretty cheap, although messing with the CPU makes me nervous..
