My sister was using a old Athlon FX 3500+ 2.2ghz single core and it recently burned up.
She is a fan of fps games like Crysis and Half Life 2 and her old machine could run it on medium specs.
Her system is
Athlon FX 3500+ 2.2ghz single core (now dead)
256mb PCI-e EVGA 7600GT
430 wat PSU
4gb PC3200 memory
I was looking at single cores and saw this

Her original PC was a bargain brand e-machine T6528.
Any info you need please feel free to ask and I will try to help you help me
