My new Gaming Rig
Im just about to spend a bit upgrading my computer to the following, used for light gaming (like a bit of bf2 every now and then etc).
x1 250gb HDD 16mb Buffer, Seagate.
x1 40gb HDD 8mb Buffer, Maxtor - already existing, will just run windows and virus software etc off it.
x1 Motherboard (havent decided which one, looking to spend aobut $150 AUD and don't really care about SLI)
x1 Geforce 7600 (Will this be alright for most games? ie FEAR, BF 2 etc. I dont want the best of the best, I just want it so it will be able to run them on Medium settings).
And I've already got 1gb of Ram, thinking about getting another gb in the future, but not sure yet, I think that 1gb will do for my use.
Any suggestions at all? My final budget is estimated at between $500 - $650 AUD, not willing to really go a cent higher.
