If anyone could help me, I would really appreciate it.
I have $600.00 to spend on building an average gaming system.
My previous computer was a Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz with 1 gig RAM and an NVidia 5500 FX AGP vid card and I was able to play Battlefield 2 with settings on low which was OK but I want a system that I can play with graphics on med or high if possible.
I already have a monitor, keyboard, soundcard and speakers.
What I need is a CPU/motherbaord combo, 1 GB RAM, vid card (preferably PCIe), computer case, power supply, SATA hard drive and a CDRW/DVDRW drive.
I will be using the computer for everday task's such as internet, email, word proccessing, burning CD's, watching movies, music and playing Battlefield 2. Considering, I have experience with P4's which I think is good for gaming, I am also curious as to how AMD performs in gaming compared to P4's.
If you think I can get all of this with just 600.00, please tell me where.
P.S. I don't have a credit card so I will be doing my shopping at Fry's Electronics www.outpost.com
since I only live 20 minutes away from their store.
