The CPU is the processor. The correct term is a 'computer'.

I agree with b1gapl.... Get a quad core instead of a duo core.... Also what resolution is your moniter... If it is 1600x1050 with you should go with a 8800gts 640mb... That will make it so you can play bioshock on max setting with about 30fps... It does for me....

thanks for all the feedback and ya im new to this but as long as this is a good computer and it works, my friend can help me build it... and Dr Dmoney, you said 8800gts 640mb, do you see it on that site? becuase that store is close buy and i can go there to check and buy the parts, so if you can find it on that site it would be easier for me to get, thanks.

Default Re: Trying to build a new cpu.

Hey warmix, i have an eVGA Superclocked 8800GTS 320MB that I want to sell and a Corsair 520W HX PSU.

Both these items are less than 3 weeks and have been used for like almost a week.

The reason for this is because i just finished my build but I realised i want the ultra and a better psu that could support it better.

PM for prices if interested.
