I've been searching the internet for pre-built desktops with parts and stuff in them to upgrade from my dying sony vaio laptop. Im a real heavy gamer but Im just kind of confused here lately about which setups are better. I prefer nvidia cards because I hear ATI's drivers get messed up a lot and Ive always used nvidia. Also I like AMD processors because in my experence, my AMD of lesser quality can perform as good or better as intel. So I'm going to be gaming, I havent had the pleasure of playing crysis, crysis:warhead, fallout3, bioshock or age of conan. I've played WoW a bit and my FPS on it was usually about 10-25 in non crowded areas with my laptop. Im looking for a built PC that will have 60+ FPS easily with max settings and I get mixed reports on video cards and processors.
Here is the first computer im leaning towards, the only bad thing is that it doesn't have a side panel window to let me see in. Tell me what you think, and what FPS in the above mentioned games it'll get.
Here's my second choice..
I've done some research on the 9800gtx+ card and it doesn't seem to be too bad but when its always getting compared to the GTX260 in the first computer, it makes you want to buy it. The biggie on this one it seems is the 6GB of ddr3 ram... Will that make a LOT of difference in the FPS of games?
If you guys know any other place that has better built computers that come put together, please let me know. My parents are buying me this for college and they don't want to risk 1000$ on me being a newbie putting the computer together by ordering seperate parts. Thanks for the help!
