I have been looking to upgrading from my POS DellP4 lately to a more up to date gaming rig. I wanna be able to run games like crysis full settings and for this thing to last me atleast 4 yrs.
I dont know much at all about computer hardware and building computers and I dont plan to act like I do. This will be my build so I dont understand much about compatablity issues or anything like that. I plan to run it with vista but I dont know which version would be right for me.
I know it may be going over the top but for CPU I was thinking Newegg.com - AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 95W Quad-Core Processor - Retail
for video card I was thinking
Newegg.com - EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
I have 2 gigs Crucial ballistix already
I have a HDD that im satisfied with but if I need a new one for compatability thats fine with me.
case: centurion 5
for PSU and MoBo i have no idea what to get.
for monitor im all set
Disc drive: im not quite sure what to get i want something that can read/write cds and dvds
Thats about it.
