    you want a budget build using outdated hardware playing the newest games on high settings? I think your expectations are a little high.

    actually i have read threads wherein c2d performs average in the new games........

    leave about high....can i atleast play at medium settings with a good GPU at 1366x768??

    I dont think hes asking too much. Most games are not cpu dependent, and that 550ti will do fine at 720p.

    Sounds like a plan. Consider that when you do upgrade later, you will have an extra 775 mobo though.

    ya....so should i go ahead with this plan?
    how will 550 ti perform with my c2d?

    so can i play majority of games at high or medium?
