My current computer is a Compaq-Evo D51c:

It should handle "today's" game at medium settings at least.

I have a $230 budget. I also need to be using this for gaming! Not HARDCORE just like quake 3 Doom 3 and crysis:P


I have a Compaq evo d51c currently so if you need to reuse any parts go right ahead

Intel pentium D 3.2 GHz
2GB DDR2 RAM
500GB HDD

is that a good system? is it good for gaming?

thats a big jump from doom 3 to crysis.

Crysis IS hardcore gaming...

my rig cant even play it on high settings well.

and you wolnt get anything decent for 200$ for gaming.
sorry : /

Default Re: what do you think about THIS build?

i can TRY, hang on a few...

Athlon II 240- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-688-_-Product
57$

Foxconn A74ML-K- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-188-_-Product
40$


2x1GB Kingston HyperX DDR2 800- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-012-_-Product
48$

500W Rosewill PSU
40$

4850 512DDR3 Card
100$

Roughly around 300$ if you want to play Crysis with decent graphics.
honestly just save up an get a good system down the road.

Do you need a hard drive, case, or operating system?
