Awesome high much detail and what kind of games will i be able to play? like will i be able to play like high end games on a medium or high end graphics?

BTW i picked this case http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0305943 mostly because i got a $50 gift card to micro center i needed to spend and this takes care of that problem. Is the 2 fans enough? or should i look for a new case?

Total price (with case) = $575

how much detail depends on what game and the resolution of your monitor.

and yea, that case should work for you.

Older games that i love that shouldnt have any problem (i.e. diablo 2 CSS) but newer games like L4D2 and maybe MW2 and if i can get it from a friends Dragonage. and then games that STILL havent come out > like diablo 3 and starcraft 2 and well you get the point

css, l4d2 and mw2 should all run at high, if not, max settings if youre not using a huge monitor.

im not sure about diablo 2/3 and sc2 though.

if youre willing to spend a little more, you could step up the gfx card. you wont have to change anything else either if you do.

normally i wouldnt have a problem uping the graphics but right now i dont have a job and am kinda pushing the money factor as is.

But its all good because if i can run mw2 and l4d2 on high setting the diablos wont be a problem D2 was released in 2000 i think and for D3 well blizzard has always been good with the lower end computer games so it should be ok.
