Thank you for all the replies!
Well it looks like I will be able to save a few bucks! While I do have the money to spend if its pointless to have the crazy over the top then I don't need it. I don't need to impress anyone. That is a budget I thought you would need to get a computer that apparently run's in the $2000-2500 range.
Berry120- Ya won't be doing anything crazy like that, don't even know what half that stuff means!
Therefore, it is safe to say single processor and single gpu is all that's needed.
Foothead: Your philosophy works for me! As stated above I didn't know I could do as much as I could for so much less. The programs would be basic, at least I would assume they would fall into that category? Excel, Word, PP, Limewire, Utorrent, many internet windows and maybe a game, all open at the same time. This would be the max I would demand from it and would want it to run just as smooth as if there was nothing open.
Air: Thank you for taking the time to do that. I appreciate it.
To All: Spending the 2000-2500 what would you do? I know I just changed it up, but it has become clear thats the very most I will need to spend to be very happy. If anyone has time to do a quick build in this range it would be appreciated. I am not to savy on knowing what parts go together and what parts do not.
Also, are there water cooling kits? Or is that something custom? I talked to my buddy he doesnt really know how to do it
so I guess I will have to have that part of it done by someone else.
Back to gaming. Is COD Modern Warefare on the comp. Thats my fav game right now on 360. What differences should I notice between this sort of set-up and the 360. Differences meaning graphics, gameplay, etc.
