Hi everyone,

My friend and I are going to build a gaming pc together. He wants to play Shogun 2 and the Witcher 2 on max settings. We both want to play Crysis and Crysis Warhead on Max settings. I want to play GTA IV on maxed settings also. We are going to want to play games at 1920 x 1080 resolution on a 21 in. monitor.

CD drive $17
6870 $165
CPU, HDD, MOBO, and RAM bundle $313
Windows 7 $90
Dell Monitor $150

I don't know much about Wifi cards, but is this one good? Is it fast enough if my router is 60 feet from my computer?
Wifi Adapter $15

I don't know much about motherboards either, if you guys could find me a motherboard that is Asus/MSI that can support Crossfire for the future, that would be great.

Is this a good setup and are there better/cheaper alternatives?

I guess I have everything I need to build a computer. I'm going to get 21 inch Dell Monitor.

I'm set?

You might need 2xGPU to play those max settings....but your Motherboard only has 1 PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot, as I add up those prices your total would be $735 why not buy a laptop that cost like $1000 with good specs. Have a look at http://www.eurocom.com/
EUROCOM FOX 2.0 it has some good specs.

I say its better than a Desktop since I love games I like my machine to be portable.

The last thing I'm going to do is look around for the same parts at different places and compare.

#Skyhide, No, I can't stand laptops. I hate typing on them, screen size. Just no lol.

I hope my graphics card will come before June 30th because it says it Usually ships within 1 to 3 weeks. Then it says Delivery Estimate: June 30, 2011 - July 14, 2011.

I wonder what will happen?
