Yeah... I'd upgrade the processor if I were you.

The motherboard is a socket LGA 775 which supports Core 2 Duos, but the best processor the GX620's bios supports is the Pentium D 960.

It still goes for ~$100 for some reason, which is a HUGE waste of money.

I say hurry and go for this: http://cgi.ebay.com/Intel-Pentium-D-945-3-4-GHz-CPU-SL9...

I'm using the same processor right now, and it's perfectly fine with Windows XP.

Also, you never told us how much RAM your computer came with..

If he goes with the 5770 and a power supply like I said, he could just move them to his new build when he makes it..

^ Only problem is that the GTS 450 doesn't have a single-slot variation. The GTS 250 does, but it's slower, hotter, and more power hungry than the dual-slot 250.

That's why I keep saying to go for the single-slot HD 5770. It's just $20 more than the single-slot GTS 250.

I think preference shouldn't be a factor when it comes down to performance for price. Why only go with a certain brand when the other is much better for a little more?

how you know it won't fit.?

How do I know?

Like I said in dude's other thread, I'm using a GX 620 right now.

I've tried constantly to find ways to fit a dual slot card in it, but to no avail. The chassis is BTX, so everything is reversed, the PCI-E slot is at the left most bracket if you lay the computer down sideways, and the damn Dell CPU fan is so huge that it would block a dual slot cooler anyway.

Low profile single-slot cards are really the only option. I'm stuck with a Radeon HD 4550 in my computer right now because I couldn't afford any other single slot card that didn't suck as much as it did (though I did get it for only $25, so I guess I can't really complain)--this is the main reason I started that AM3 build thread; to find something better, because I hate being limited so much by the GX 620.

I doubt he would like a 4550, so I'm saying over and over to go with the 5770!

^ My bad if I came off too harsh.

I'm just really fervent about this topic because OP is in the same situation I was in not too long ago.

Unless you like playing on reduced settings, the GT 240 ain't really gonna cut it. The processor is gonna slow things down a bit, but going with the Radeon HD 5770 that I suggested ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -- the other thread was taken down) and this power supply ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-822-... -- not too great, but more than enough for your computer; you can just buy a better one when or if you build a new PC later) will make things quite a bit better.

The GT 240 will more than likely struggle at running Just Cause 2 maxed, and GTA 4 is gonna suck on the GX 620 regardless because the processor is pretty bad.

If you go with the HD 5770 and build a new computer with a better processor later on, you'll be fine.

Forget about GTA IV, it lags on everything but a decent quadcore with lots of ram.

MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MEMORY: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Special/ShellShocker.aspx?cm_sp=S... - GRAB IT QUICK!

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


That'll get you running any current game at mid- high settings on resolutions 1680x1050 and below.


OR if you want to keep your memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and everything else the same

He doesn't need the case, and there's still a graphics card missing.

He does need a case. The GX 620 is BTX. Special motherboard, special CPU fan, and special chassis.

Only BTX boards will fit in the GX 620 case, but they don't even make those anymore; the ones that still exist suck ass, too.
