I've got a keyboard and mouse already, and I've already got a monitor.
I just need:
Power Supply (may already have one, but would like suggestions anyway)
Personally, I was looking at just getting something like this: HP - Pavilion Slimline Desktop / AMD Athlon™ II Processor / 3GB Memory / 500GB Hard Drive - s5704y
BUT, switch out the Graphics card for something better, BUT, I don't quite know for what exactly. For my current budget constraints (for now, later on it'll expand, but I need to know WHAT to save money for, ya know?) I feel doing something like the above would be better suited, although I'd like something more powerful later on eventually.
My end-goal is to be able to run the next generation of video games. Especially to be able to play Shogun 2 total war, and Empire Total War on their maxed settings. And to be able to run bad company 2 or black ops on their maxed settings as well. Or at least the medium settings.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
