hey just wondering if this system will be able to play all the new games coming out at a reasonable frame rate also will it be able to play crysis at medium to high settings thanks any help would be appreciated.
Processor (CPU) AMD PHENOM II X4 955 SOCKET AM3 (3.20GHz/8MB CACHE) - BLACK EDITION
Your description of case and power supply is sort of garbled-- what do you plan to get? Also what is your total budget here? prices would help.
I think you would be happier spending more on the graphics if you are planning to primarily game on this. --what resolution do you hope to play at? At least get a 5770, but if you can afford it I think a 5830 would be better.
ok thanks im not too bothered about the top graphics but mid range would be good i dont really understand much about the components this is the first computer i will build (with help) so better graphics card and cheaper possessor
Also-- search toms for "$800 new build" and you will get good ideas by reading.
Also.. once you have done more research you will want to repost your ideas in the "homebuilt systems" section. You will get more input from experts there--since this thread is in the wrong section of the forum.
You should be able to play Crysis with settings above medium. You could do high is your resolution is 1680x1050 or below. Most current games should be fine on that system on high settings though, but future games will of course tax it more. With your SLI board though, you can add another GTS250 for more power when the need arises, assuming you don't wait too long as they will disappear.
