Civ V noob Build


I am interested in building my own PC for the first time. Primarily for Civ V, I've been waiting for the system requirments to pull the trigger on anything. They are:

Recommended Requirements

Operating System: Windows� Vista SP2/ Windows� 7
Processor: 1.8 GHz Quad Core CPU
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 8 GB Free
DVD-ROM Drive: Required for disc-based installation
Video: 512 MB ATI 4800 series or better, 512 MB nVidia 9800 series or better
Sound: DirectX 9.0c-compatible sound card
DirectX�: DirectX� version 11

I would like to keep the cost between 700-900 (not including monitor, mouse & keyboard)

Thanks In advance for your help!

  1. sorry, didn't mean to just dump that on you. :-/

    thats a build from another thread with a little tweaking for your budget. forgot the OS.... oops. my links arent working... grr. ill edit that.

    EDIT: ps, Im a really big civ 3 fan myself, first real game i played.
  2. $682AR +$100 for OS
  3. what is up with the BIOSTAR, i don't care what anyone says, that is a bad brand.
  4. and the F3 is preferable to the Barracuda.
  5. If u have to know others dun listen to me all this while because i state brand A>B but because i worked with most brands and understand all brands have gems/lemons at different price points/features ^^
