  • Make sure it has a decent graphics card, at least 512 MB or more. And I'm recomending at least 3 GB or more for the of memory, I have 2 GB so some games don't play very well.

  • i7 860, gtx 295, 8gbs ram, and like... 2 terabytes of HDD...(1tb,500gb,500gb, and like...20 for OS)

    so, um...luckily my dad fixes computers and gets this stuff discounted lol..

    i would honestly consider building your own, much better...for alot less.. if not look at digital storm computers, best service, best parts, best customization.. all for the lowest premade prices i have seen anywhere else..

  •   If you don't mind getting a laptop, and want a fairly affordable one for todays games, then how about the alienware m11x. that looks pretty good.

  • I'm running an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ with a GeForce 9500 GT. Only 1GB RAM right now, but whenever Newegg ships out, I'll have another 2 to add on. It's running Assassin's Creed, Arkham Asylum, and BioShock almost perfectly, and none of the components are very expensive.

  • -Intel Core 2 Duo o/c to 3.00 Ghz

    -1000 watt Ultra PSU

    -4 gigs DDR2 RAM

    -D-link X-treme N wireless Network adapter

    -Creative x-fi 7.1 soundcard

    -250 & 500 gig HDD

    -BFG GTX 260 Maxcore w/ 896 MB GDDR3  Core clock o/ced to 610 mhz (590 is standard on the card but 576 is standard on the regular edition)

    -Some intel motherboard I forgot the name of.

    Sure, my system isn't cutting edge, but considering I've managed to play all of my games on high settings (including full resolution), I'd say it works *** well. And with all the new cpu's on the market today, you an get even a quad core processor pretty much at the same price I got my core 2 duo at when it came out.

    Remember, while it would be freakin sweet to have, when it comes to computers you don't exactly need the absolute cutting edge to run things. Even getting components a few months old can save you a lot of money without being too behind on technology.

  • Processor: Core 2 Duo E8500 E0 (3.16GHz), OC'd to 4.0GHz (445x9.0 @ 1.325v)

    RAM: 2x2GB OCZ Reaper HPC DDR2 1066 PC 8500

    I built it about a year ago for about $800 (not including OS, mouse, keyboard, headset, monitor, 60GB HDD, fan controller, and Yate Loons, since I either already had them from my old PC or I bought them a few months later). It handles most of my newer games pretty well
