...that's not going to help you run Crysis, mate. It has nothing to do with you running Crysis.

That's kind of like saying you can run a triathlon because you have running shoes.

That's not going to help you at all..

Same for me.. (with the exception of the Mouse..)

FPS depends on this:
- CPU
- Mobo (the chipset can sometimes help a little)
- RAM Amount
- Hard Drive
- MOST IMPORTANTLY: Video Card

Next time quote the message, since it was a whole lot of posts ago. Easy to get your response confused.

No reason not to get Vista, just make sure you get Home Premium 64bit.

Lmao, thanks for pointing that out, Aspire. Getting used to this new keyboard. Second hand with some sticky keys...but at least the space bar works.

Hikari's build would play WoW, not in ultra high or anything, but you also have to consider it doesn't include Windows. So that will add another 100 bucks (eh maybe still 80 on the egg)

If you could wait a bit and save to around 5-600 that would help alot honestly. Onboard graphics are...bleh.
