Building a PC, need help Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: December 3, 2009 5:06 PM in Systems Share cmamnsb December 3, 2009 7:14:17 AM Okay so Christmas is coming, and that means upgrade time for me. I'm currently running a decent but rather aged computer and I'm in the market for a new one. I spend most of my gaming time in Modern Warfare 2, Left 4 Dead 2, World of Warcraft, etc. I'm far too tired to post links to all the parts right now, will do so in the morning, but I'm getting as follows: 650 Watt PSU 4GB Ram nVidia GTX 275 Intel Core i5 Case, fans, cooling, etc. What I'm posting for is to ask if anyone knows these parts well enough to tell me what kind of performance I can expect? I'd like to run the games I play on maxed settings, save for AA/AF, not a big deal, and get at least 60 FPS or something around there. Thanks in advance!

If someone could maybe build up a Intel/nVidia gaming rig with a 850-900$ budget or something, that would be incredible Just post links to the parts obviously Dont need ya to actually build it. xD Can't find your answer ?
