I'm saving up for a new computer at the moment since this ones getting old( 4 years now), although it can play C&C3 okish it has a AGP 7600GS and DDR ram and so you know i need to be getting a new one as soon as i can.
I'm mostly an RTS gamer, so this year coming up i'll be buying supreme commander:FA, C&C3's expansion pack, new Dawn of War expansion pack, Spore(looks cool) and Universe at War: Earth Assault. MAYBE some FPS but generally i buy them for my xbox360, like COD4.
So i need a computer that's going to handle the massing of units well, which i'm guessing means like 4gb ram and very good graphics card.
So although prices are obviously going to drop when new stuff comes out( i heard lots is coming out feb-march?) i was wondering, how much would a decent gaming computer cost now, if i bought everything, as in monitor, speakers, OS( i may go vista...
) etc. Also how much do think a similar system in say 6 months cost?
Do you think £800-£1000 ( yeah i know kind of a large range..) would be enough?
Grrr i hate you US people and your Newegg, the prices there seem to be way better with some components then overclockersUK, aria, ebuyer, etc
