I need a decent gaming computer. Help? Tags: Homebuilt Computer Build Systems Product Last response: January 3, 2011 1:27 AM in Systems Share pyrogx January 2, 2011 4:37:16 AM I would like to build a computer that will play online games such as Starcraft II, World of Warcraft, Crysis (at mid settings). The part i WANT in the build is the AMD 955 cpu. I would like this build to be <$700, but can go over a little bit. maybe to $750. But this computer HAS to be capable of streaming HD video from youtube or other sources with little to no lag. Also, I would be very happy if the build has room for future upgrades (video card, ram). ALso needs a spacious case. More about : decent gaming computer Scanlia January 2, 2011 6:12:05 AM lag on youtube doesn't depend on how fast you computer is.. (unless you have a REALLY bad computer, which you don't) lag on youtube depends on how fast your internet connection speed is.. i would be looking at a NVIDIA GTX 460... stingstang January 2, 2011 2:58:49 PM Ok, well, build something on newegg.com and link the components. The best part of building a computer is choosing the parts yourself. You're the only one who knows what you like. Also, do you need a monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers?

How come you prefer the 955? pyrogx January 3, 2011 1:27:16 AM boiler1990 said:It'll work ok. How come you prefer the 955? A buddy of mine has the 955 in one of his builds, and the i5-760 in another. his AMD machine wrecks the intel build. So i prefere AMD, plus the price range is better on my bank.
