Hello, my old pc is... old.. so i need a new one. one that would be able to run new games the next couple of game generations.. currently it should atleast run Battlefield: Bad Company 2:
System Requirements (Recommended)
OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad or higher
Graphics: 512 MB Video Card (GeForce GTX 260/ ATI Radeon 4870)
Controller Support: Support for Logitech G15 and G19 keyboard LCDs in multiplayer
SLI/Crossfire just mean to run more than one graphics card at a time.
Last question, do you have any site you want me to reference to or I'll just use newegg.com as a reference to parts & price. (650 euro = 884 USD via Google)
just one question, is the Intel i5 core so much better than a AMD Phenom2 Quad ?

I wouldn't say one is better than the other but i5 is better than Phenom II quads in some areas but in gaming it is back and forth since gaming has to do with the GPU as long as the CPU isn't a bottleneck. Overall though the i5 750 has a better bang/buck than Phenom II quads. If you want to lower the price though, that is where AMD shines and I can modify the build to include some Athlon IIs and an AM3 motherboard.
