Is the processor/ mobo you have close to this one?
Jun 16, 2010, 4:26 PM
Thats his monitor and I honestly don't know what resolution he will be playing at but I'd assume native I forgot to mention he also needs an operating system
Jun 16, 2010, 4:28 PM
Yeah, but do you think it will make a noticeable difference when gaming?
Jun 16, 2010, 4:30 PM
Yep then good to go - suggested config is $782AR with $100 Win 7 HP 64 ^^
That combo u picked out is a quad/Deneb : the chip suggested is a triple core ^^
Jun 16, 2010, 4:34 PM
Nope not for gaming ^^

Unless you actually need the headset, I'd make a few changes to batuchka's build.
Same PSU, but combo'd with an Optical drive for $20 savings.
Then use this combo for the GPU which includes a free power strip for $3 cheaper than the GPU by itself (basically Newegg is paying you to take teh power strip).
Saves you $23 total.
