Default frustration setting in

I really like the build I posted yesterday but unfortunately for me it is a bit expensive. My parents aren't gonna help pay for it or anything so I gotta buy it with the money I make over the WHILE trying to save for school in the fall. So my question is do you think I could build an AMD computer for cheaper but still comparible? Basically, my main goal is to have a computer that can play Oblivion with decent settings.

well if you're gonna build a computer... either save up more if you want a better computer or buy what you can.... you might have to lower the price of the more ex*****ve parts. Oblivion isnt that hardcore of a game. I doubt you need a super-duper computer to make it work. If its gonna be yours as long as you dont install a bunch of stuff on it then it will work fine. world of warcraft works on my crappy computer.
