if you consider 35.2 FPS high with a PIIx4.


AND certainly not with that GT 620!

do you have a budget?

yea $600 i played on an asus laptop at 5 frames and under
i was instantly hooked and tolerated the horrible frames for just under 10 hours of gameplay

so 32 fps will be beautiful to me

thanks for the info

that was just a benchmark of CPUs the graphics card you have will not get that . .you need a 7770 at least to get 25 fps.

yup
i plan on getting a modular unit around 1000w
it'll be overkill atm but later it should handle anything i can throw at it
didnt mean to include the psu from the case

omg no! you won't need a 1000 watt PSU. think of getting a quality one such as seasonic, corsair, antec, XFX and some rosewells.

a 750 watt PSU can handle anything you can throw at it. bigger than that is for several (more than 2) power hungry graphic cards.

most of the time, there is no need to go over 650 watts.
