Need advice on <1100 gaming PC? Thanks. Tags: New Build Gaming Monitors Systems Product Last response: July 24, 2010 2:03 AM in Systems Share fb72 July 24, 2010 1:47:15 AM APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within the next 90 days or so. BUDGET RANGE: I'd like to keep it under 1000 if possible, but I can go up to about 1100 or so. SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (specifically Second Life), college coursework (non-graphic), basic Internet usage PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor, printer/copier/scanner, keyboard, mouse. PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Anywhere that I can access on pricewatch.com is fine, Newegg.com, etc. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: U.S. PARTS PREFERENCES: Any video card that is powerful enough to run Second Life without skipping or technical screwups. (The SL website is not at all helpful with recommendations.) OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, if it will help with the gaming aspect. SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe, if it will help with the gaming aspect. MONITOR RESOLUTION: I am not sure of what the res is on the monitor, I know it's a minimum of 1280x1024. ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I'm willing to "cut corners" on some aspects of the system if it's not required for the Second Life program. Would prefer an AMD-based system if possible. Thanks!
