A decent AMD gaming rig costs $720 (Incl OS) . . . You can go cheaper, but *I* would not.

I think PS3 and X-Box run around $300 ...

Hope you already have a decent HDTV, tho.

So would my Macbook pro not work or could it suffice?

It won't be likely to work. Macbooks use extremely old technology, which wasn't very good back then either. Macs are not gaming platforms. If you want to game, get yourself a real computer.

Well said. +1.

A pretty decent gaming C can be built for ~$700-750.

^Yup. More or less what I would recommend.

If you want CrossFire support (mainly for the future), get this board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

@MadAdmiral: Your links get re-directed to this thread?


edit: WTF? My links also get redirected back to this thread?!?!?!.
This is the board: GIGABYTE GA-790XT-USB3 AM3 AMD 790X USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
Do a Google search to find it on Newegg.

I've noticed it too, but it only happens when you try to open links in new tabs. I'm not sure if its firefox or toms.

It works fine if you just click them.

Also, if you want Crossfire, you'll need a bigger PSU, something more along the lines of the Antec 650W for $80.

Yup. Only happens in toms. Happens with Chrome also, along with FF 3.7a4.
