Default amd 3800+

my little bro is going to build his first pc and is wondering if the 64 bit athlon 3800+ will run the newest titles such as Fear, HL2, and CSS.

Were planing on a 1gb of corsair and a evga 7600gt. I guess anotherthing is the graphics card do you think there is a better option.

Look forword to the info and thanks in advance.

If you are willing to wait a week or two, AMD is planning on lowing their prices. You can get the X2 3800+ for under $200. Will be well worth it.

Well, now that I think about it, it may be only for Socket AM2, not 939. Maybe someone else knows.

I saw a list floating on here somwhere and the X2 3800+ for 939 should be going down to 195 retail. Its a good deal and a great processor. BTW those games arent the latest titles anymore

well about the graphics card, for the budget the 7600 by evga is good, but if you want an awsome card and have about 260 to spend I would get the 7900gt by evga.

Are you talking about the Dual Core or the single core?
