I feel really bad for u mate i know how it feels building something u expect lots from and then it not delivering...

However as has been said, the celeron is the huge let down, its an awful processor for gaming. The ram might help but to be honest its still not going to play many games well, especially the newer ones.

What operating system are you running? If It's XP I Would get a 7900GT,If it's vista an 8600GT Should do the trick no problem.

lol i know, im just saying i dont want to limit myself dollar wise, what i want is a good system without all the bells and whistles so i can play the games i want without spending a fortune. For example, if there is a motherboard for 399, and its top of the line, but i could get a different motherboard for 199 and it will still do everything i need then i would rather get the 199 to save myself the 200 dollars.

Default Re: The Comp that was suppose to be good

OK i get what you are saying now

Anyhow i would say this
Get an EVGA 680i motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188012
Get a decent CPU , either C2D or quad core
Get 2 gigs of DDR2 800MHZ ram of a decent brand like OCZ corsair kingston buffalo geil are a few - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227124
Get a decent gpu , i would say get an 8800 but the model depends on what money you wanna spend
Get enough hard drive for your needs , what you think you will need
And a decent PSU
ALso depending upon what you already have you may need a new case
Those are just example parts i dont know how well they work at all as i dont have them and so i am sure other people can come along and show you what would be better

yeah quad cores have been around a short while
here are some at newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...me=Core+2+Quad
, IMO you wont need one for a while unless you do some pretty intensive stuff , most games can be played well enough on a dual core
And gpu is a graphics processing unit , or a graphics card or video card
