so is there any recommendations as to a computer that would be a good one for my girlfriend. she wants to play alliance of valiant arms,
i have a hp p6823w that works pretty good for the game , it has a ati radeon 4200 hd - if there was anything similar to this, but better in terms of price and performance let me know please - is a dell inspiron 570 almost equal to the p6823w? it has a different processor, then the p6823w, which is a rebranded athlon toted at being 3.6g (if i remember correctly)
I think the AMD A6-3500 might be a good basis for this build. The integrated graphics are a lot better than the HD 4200 and it's pretty decent for the price in terms of CPU power too. It also means you can easily upgrade later by just adding a decent graphics card like an HD 6770.
This would be pretty good.
AMD A6-3500 - $79.99
4GB Mushkin Essentials DDR3 1333Mhz - $21.99
ASRock A55M-HVS - $58.99
Seagate Barracuda 250GB - $79.99
Rosewill R101-P-BK - $29.99
Corsair CX-430 430W - $44.99
LG DVD Burner - $15.99
Total - $331.93
Slightly over budget but would be quite a bit better than that HP in games and you can just add a graphics card later if you need more performance, as I said the HD 6770 would be a nice choice.
EDIT: Just going to add, if theres an old hard drive you can reuse you could cut the price down to $250.
