Did you build that computer using Tech forums because thats not something that is usually recommended here. its looks ok, but i feel that you could have gotten a better configuration.

Partially because you went Intel. Im not a fan boy but you said it yourself, you wanted a computer to play CS and AOE3, and AMD would have been better.

Unfourtunaly i had a 900 dollar budget, and i fail to see where a 7600GT falls in to that. The guy i bought from only really offerd Intel, but istn 3.0ghz enough to run those two games.?

yea id say so, but you were much better off with AMD for gaming. Is there anyway you can take back the computer and get a refund , we can sure put your 900 dollars to make a better comp.

No theirs no real way to bring it back, plus my dad doesnt "trust" amd, hes a retard but what can i do im not paying for it. Anyway i think its cool for now, and when i need a cpu upgrade ill just get a duel core pentium (since my mobo supports it)

That's when you tell your parents "this is my money, you agreed to let me build a computer, so go jump in a lake."

I pretty much did that on my first build (until my dad blew it up and bought me all new parts...)

I never said it was my money, my parents money. Either way thanks i guess but im not really looking for parental advice, just want to know if this build will urns age of empires 3 and CS:S. I figure it will its got more in it then the reccomended specs are.

Also any help upgrade wise would be appreciated but non of this take it all apart and start over stuff i dont have thta kind of money im a budget gamer unfourtunatly so just stuff that can better what i already have.
