Default Yes another help me build question and some other stuff

ok. this is like my 2nd post here, but for what i have read people here loves to help (well thats what i think) so i said, well lets just bother them again with noob question.. so here it goes..

ok i've been reading about al that amd vs intel stuff, neways i posted another topic with a budget around the k, the build suggested intel, now, my computer is going to be mostly for gaming, some oldies like, MOHAA, CS,MOHPA, i wanna try FEAR, you get the idea, also i really like rpgs, however i dont have the money to pay for WoW, so i play the "copy" of wow, which is free , it called "Silkroad", now, i hope that helps, however of course i will be buying new games, but i think most "pc killer/eater" games will come out for da xbox360 too so i really dont worry bout them, but still i would like to play new gen games, so the main question here is, the budget is around 1k, talldude123 quoted meithan with a 1k build, which used intel, however for what i know and read, AMD used to be better than intel (ok i dont say OWN or kick a** cause i dont want to start a fight, i want sum help) but now with da new dual core and stuff they say intel is better, however i really dont plan on overclocking, because of 2 reasons.. i dont freaken know how, and i dont want to screw da pc, so keeping it stock for a while would be nice, so i know this thread is kinda long, and so far has no sense (xcuseme for dat ¬¬) but i want a new pc and this seems like the perfect place to ask for opinions/help.

So for u that know pc stuff plz leave leave aside the intel/amd prefences. Please i dont want a thread that will probably get closed because of a fight. :bald:


so that said, please post ideas of a cool gaming build at around 900/1k.. yes im poor lol, but hey, i will get a job and pay for ma own parts..


thanks in advance i really love these forums and da people in them.


Pease

nothing in computers really lasts years like people would expect...

however it should still get by. you can't expect something to stay on top of things without upgrading when computers change so fast. you should be able to make minor upgrades over time to keep it up to date though.
