Hey ya'll, i'm building a comp soon to play Aion, Fallout 3, Dragon Age Origins, Starcraft 2, Mass Effect 2...Diablo 3 when that bad boy comes out
I made this rig on Newegg and want to see what you guys think about it. After rebates it comes out to 678 dollars. I don't have an OS in the build though, but that cost isn't in the rig cost, i'm going to get win 7 64 bit no matter what.
Anyhoo.....here is the build, do your worst on the critics cuz I want to really see whats good/bad about it.
GPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... good ol 5770, solid card that will run those games well on my res i feel. On Fallout 3 and Aion things might get a bit choppy but i can just turn of shadows for a nice fps boost..im not a guy who really cares about shadows or AA/AF
Cpu/mobo combo http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... phenom II x2 555 be with an asus am3 evo board. I want to stick to a dual and eventually upgrade to a 6 core. None of the games i want to play will really need a quad core, and honestly i dont think at my res 4 cores will really do much, the gpu will be working overtime on that res. I can also use the board to maybe unlock 2 more cores, but i'm not betting on it cuz its just random luck
