What do you guys think about this PC for my dad? Tags: CPUs Last response: July 26, 2012 8:13 PM in CPUs Share masakruwolverine July 26, 2012 7:51:40 PM So,I´m building a PC for my dad as a gift for his birthday. Currently,he doesn´t own one,although he would love to have his own PC,it has been three years since the last time I saw my dad and this is my birthday gift to him,for all the time we lost..... The dude´s crazy about videogames,so I built this PC for him,I can´t do much better due to lack of money and I would like to hear what do you guys think about this PC for him? He usually plays Empire Earth,Starcraft,Warhammer,Age of Empires,Diablo 3,etc....RPG and RTS games. This is the config I used (this is the best I can do,I can´t get any more money-poor dude here): CPU:AMD ATHLON II X3 450 3,2 Ghz AM3 BOX Ram DR3 4GB 1333 PATRIOT PSU:ATX 600W B-MOve Mobo:ASUS M5A78L-M LX V2 AM3+ 2XDDR3 MATX VGA GLA GPU: Gigabyte HD 5770 What do you guys think about this PC for him?For his games? Will it work good? He doesn´t know how to set settings,therefore he always plays games with preset settings from the game. Will this PC be enough for his tasks for a couple of years from now on? Cheers to everybody and thanks for your time.

But I already have the GPU bought,the case,the HDD and the DVD-RW,so there will be only the CPU,RAM,PSU and MOBO.

Good on you All the best Brett Well,thank you so much for your kind words,sir. YES. I think he´ll love it,I´m so damn tired of knowing he´s playing games on his friends PCs whenever he has the opportunity. If I can´t see him,at least I can make him a joy,but I´m worried about the PC,I hope it will be enough for his expectations,although as you said,he has none. I hope he´ll be able to play the games he wants without any trouble Thank you ! mohsentux July 26, 2012 8:13:04 PM this is an optimum computer for RPG Games so i give it a thumbs up just remember the better the monitor the better the GPU should be, most people forget about that!
