Hello everyone. I am looking to build a mid-level gaming PC. I'd like to keep it around $800 or so. I am planning on doing this over time and not at all at once so if i need to up the budget or whatever I can. I'd like something that would be able to play WoW, SC2, and the new Simcity on max settings. I usually leave my first person shooters/sports to the console. I know how to build it I guess as I look through all the parts and such I don't feel like I'm getting my value.
In addition if you have a build you can suggest to get this done at $500/$600 please share it. I don't object to saving money.
I also have no intention of overclocking. My system will hook up to dual monitors at 1680x1050.
Didn't see this before. Guess I should learn to read.
