I enjoy PC gaming. I have a GTX 550 ti and a lenovo pc that is at least 4 years old. It definitely works, but games aren't running well enough. It always seems like I'm really pushing the system (the fans make a LOT of noise) and stuff gets pretty laggy at times. I don't know if texture memory is the problem, my CPU bottle-necking or that my PC is really not up to par anymore. Probably all three.
Regardless, I've decided to get a new gaming PC that will be able to run games I like such as Far Cry 3 and The Witcher 2 decently performance-wise and on medium/high settings graphics-wise. Hopefully that can be done with my budget.
I'm tentative about everything because after reading other forums on this, building a pc seems extremely complicated. I have a price range of about $1000 for everything, so if people could give me suggestions and tips for what I can do, that would be great. How much RAM will the computer need? What kind of processor? How many GB should the gaming card be, what model do you suggest, etc. All while keeping in mind that I'm new to the terminology surrounding this technology.
I would really appreciate your help on this! Thanks in advance.
