Hello everyone I've been saving up to build my own computer for a while, I'm been trying really hard to understand all the technical terms that go with PCs.
I'm trying to build a PC to play some MMO's And maybe some Call of Duty. I'm trying to stay on the bare minimum side of features and only get what i need.
I'm not sure which Gpu to get and what would be compatible with the configuration i chose. I'm looking for a gpu under 100$ on newegg. I'd prefer it to be a radeon card because im more familiar with them then nvidia but nvidia is fine also. if i could also get some feedback on the components i chose that would be awesome.
I'm only a 16 Y.o kid i make 40-50 bucks a week mowing lawns so try not to point me out to luxury gpu's i cant afford.
and i Dont Like the reason you are picking the Amd Phenom X4 , They are good Cpus even better than bulldozer (FX 4100 - FX 6100) from amd, but amd is not even puttting a fight against Intel anymore. The 89 Usd G850 of Intel, Cleans the floor with any cpu of amd except the higuer end ones.
Another Reason is, that When you Upgrade your Stuff will be Really , Really Old and unusuable, if you go Intel you might re use the motherboard and Ram. Even the HDD.
Here is a link showing you the the Real performance on each Cpu.
The only Reason they Said Fx 4100 have a Honorable mention and Phenom X4 Is good is because they are Real Quad cores. They are only like 10 Games that Use 4 Cores and maybe there will be more with time, but almost all games from 2005-2011 use Dual Cores and The G850 is Faster In these Situations.
