Its great to have the extra core for your OS, back round applications, etc. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/starcraft-ii-radeon... Edit: With luck you might be able to unlock the triple into a quad 21.5 - 23" (1920x1080) m 0 l batuchka a b C Monitor November 23, 2010 3:24:36 AM I would hit a juicy 23" LCD at least ^^ m 0 l chinitams November 23, 2010 3:25:28 AM @karma831 oh now i get it. thanks for clearing up my mind. how bout for the graphics? is my graphic card enough to handle ultra settings? m 0 l chinitams November 23, 2010 3:26:05 AM @batuchka what brand? samsung or something? m 0 l batuchka a b C Monitor November 23, 2010 3:28:24 AM That would depend on your budget but i would look at EMachines/Acer for starters m 0 l chinitams November 23, 2010 3:30:24 AM oh. ok ok. so any brand will do? it all dpends on the budget right? haha. m 0 l batuchka a b C Monitor November 23, 2010 3:33:15 AM You would want to read the specs like connectivity, etc as well but ya budget plays a part as well hehe m 0 l karma831 November 23, 2010 3:38:16 AM You should really try to buy your monitor in store so you can check it out first. A lot of the time monitors will have great looking specs but are very disappointing when they arrive at your home. m 0 l chinitams November 23, 2010 3:39:13 AM ok ok, Question: Why did you suggest amd? is it because of the budget or it fits well with my gaming requirements? m 0 l chinitams November 23, 2010 3:40:08 AM @Karma831 ok ok ill keep that in mind. thanks for reminding me m 0 l karma831 November 23, 2010 3:43:28 AM chinitams said:ok ok, Question: Why did you suggest amd? is it because of the budget or it fits well with my gaming requirements? Both. I'm sure you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between these CPUs and an i7 in gaming. AMD gets you the best bang for your buck. m 0 l chinitams November 23, 2010 3:45:42 AM oh i see. they always say that intel is better than amd so i asked that question. haha. they keep telling me that i should get intel not amd. haha m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
