I'm fairly knew to this, I've done my fair share of upgrading my old computer which was about 1200 (2004) with over 400$ in parts etc. but now that I know buying a pre-built computer won't get me the best bang for my buck. So I'm trying to keep it on a budge around $600 which I know is possible (ddr3/quad) etc. The game I'm playing currently is Darkfall Online, and I know their engine doesn't work with some ATI vid-cards. If anyone could help with a somewhat list of what I should look for and the difficulty of actually building it from scratch would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch. I'll be able to upgrade it more in the future when I feel I can spare some money into it again.
