Additional Comments: Looking for advice on suitable Core processor (Wolfdale, Conroe, Yorkfield, Kentsfield?), suitable graphics card that won't be bottlenecked by the processor, and appropriate PSU. This upgrade is for the game Team Fortress 2 specifically.

TF2 Performance Requirements:
- stable 60+ FPS
- LOWEST graphical settings OK

If my hardware/cost requirements are not matching my performance requirements please feel free to correct me and let me know the realistic possibilities I'll be working with here.

Thank you in advance!

  1. I suppose that just because a site has some of the best content doesn't necessarily mean it has readers informed on anything other than the newest and most expensive technologies.

    That's a shame. I thought this would've been an interesting cost/performance analysis.
