Default New Gaming Computer That Supports Guilds Wars+

Alright. I'm in the works of trying to learn about computers and such, but the posts i've read through are like... A different language. :\


I know i'm a noob, but i'm willing to work with people. Just please, keep it simple.


My budget is 700-800. Depending on whatever.

I really appreciate you taking the time to post, just don't make it dumb. :c

I would go with this PSU: Corsair 750w
CORSAIR 750w TX Series 80 Plus Certified Power Supply - CMPSU-750TX - Buy.com

I know its overkill but for $5 more how can you pass up that deal.

Also consider this CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Its a little cheaper and will run games better.

Honestly, no offense the the OP, but he doesn't seem like the kind of guy who will be considering upgrades in the forseeable(spelling?) future. I guess he could get the 750 there really is no point unless he thinks he is going to have the money to significantly upgrade his computer to the point where it would require that 750. Chips are only getting smaller and will require less power to run.

Ya do you need an OS too? I just assumed you did but if you don't that's going to put you over budget.
