are you able to overclock your cpu a little bit? If so that could help out big time...its a quad core cpu but a little bump in speed will help out a good amount.....as far as graphics card suggestions...where would you prefer to purchase it? (I am in the U.S. and dont really know where you are buying from) also what resolution are you looking to game at? Usually for a budget like that I recommend a 6870
I have a good zalman cooler and should be able to over clock, what Ghz would you recommend? I'm planning on ordering online so any company based in the european union (I'll have to pay alot of "duty" on an item worth 150 euro)
When you say the 6870, i'm assuming you mean the amd radeon HD 6870? I'm looking at playing the games at medium to high resolution.
Basically what i'm looking for is the best graphics card for my money.
