I am building my little sister (17yrs old) a new desperation, cheap, system. Goal is to surf internet, you tube, and play games. As Far as gaming, I am interested in a machine that will play new games on the market low to medium settings (FPS 30+). I would like this rig to last a couple of years, then can be easily updated with some more ram and a video card.
Setup so far is (all prices after mail in rebates):
Should I get a higher reso monitor? Are the GPU's i suggested too good for cpu? do you think I could even get away with throwing in the 1gb 4670 radeon to get by or the next year? Any other thoughts? Thanks so much for reading, and any input.
I know the 4100 is not great for gaming, but a 3.6 quad CPU w/ decent motherboard for 90..bucks..Cant beat it, I don't think! I could upgrade to a 6300, or even a 8100 for $20 or $30 bucks, but if I did that, i feel i should prob upgrade motherboard as well.
