How would this system do in gaming?

At Newegg I am looking at this Acer PC. It will be used for alot of internet browsing, Facebook games (my wife) and some general purpose gaming for me (Minecraft, World of Warcraft, Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2). These specs blow away what I have had in the past and one PC I had I was able to max out COD: MW2. (Athlon X2 4800+, 2GB, Geforce 9600 GT) so I am assuming this one would kill it. This seems like a great price for this power, am I correct?

  1. so you old computer had the athlon x2? what are the specs of the one your looking at?
  2. The video card that it has is pretty much equal to the 9600gt so you'll probably get only a little more from the cpu.
  3. The system I am looking at is in the link (Click Acer), it's specs are a Phenom II X4, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD & Radeon HD 6570. I don't have the Athlon X2 system anymore, had to sell it a couple years ago. I am currently sporting a Pentium 4 2.6GHz, 2GB, 320GB HDD & Radeon 9700TX ha ha.
  4. Well considering the quad core: its decent.
    However, the GPU is a low end (budget) and you may not get the performance boost you are expecting. If the MOBO supports it, buy another 6570 and crossfire. The benchmarks are great! Also, with MLAA it should have beyond decent performance.

    The cheapest/best value one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102934&cm_re=6570-_-14-102-934-_-Product
  5. LOL i Fail i didnt see the link. I didnt know it was a link. lol

    its a good computer but the video card is the only problem. its not too much of an improvement over the 9600gt. a 5770 or greater should be you best choice if the power supply can handle it.
  6. For your money dude, if you know how to build, I think for not much more you could build a better system. Just my opinion.
