Re: Custom Computer.
DO NOT buy a dual-core processor, the performance hit is only slightly different in comparison to a single-core but it will give you no end of troubles with regards to gaming, if you have to get one, make it the AMD FX-60 otherwise steer clear, past and even future games simply lack the support for the dual core and so crashes are a frequent thing, talking from experience. Stick to basics with the case, it will save you a few bob and will impress people more to see lots of power coming from a standard-looking computer. Put the money you save from the case on some quality fans, overheating is a commonly overlooked issue and the cause of many crashes. With regard to audio, that card is suitable, audio is another cause of game crashing when two or more peices of hardware try to process information through the same channel. You won't need 2 Gb RAM, 1Gb will be sufficent, hope that helped. Jon
