Hey. Just found this forum today and thought I'd get some feed back from more experienced builders. I am building a gaming computer, pretty much to play Aion well when it comes out; or any other games i stumble across. My budget is pretty much the best bang for the buck; I don't want overkill and I don't want an underperforing machine either.
My set up so far is looking like this...
-EVGA nforce 730A mobo bundled with and AMD Phenom x4 9550 CPU
-chose the quad-core so it doesn't get outdated too quickly plus its part of a well priced bundle
-BFG GeForce 9600 GT OC 512 MB GDDR3 video card
-OCZ GameStream 700W PSU
-Seagate 500 GB SATA HD bundled w/Windows Vista Ultimate 64
-2X Centon 2048 MB PC4200 DDR2 533 MHz Memory
all of this comes out to about $600-700 with the deals i have found
The case I have already ordered, which is a NZXT Alpha
The peripherals i already own multiples of
I wanted to know if this set up will perform well; If it will play most games at medium to high settings; If I should just totally reconsider my choice of products all together? and If building will be something i will get hooked on lol. thanks in advance for any responses
