Wassup everyone, Im looking to spend at least a 1,000 dollars on a new pc. Problem is i dont know what or where to get it from. I would like a pc that can play bf2 on high settings and other online mp games the same. Right now im only gettin like 20fps on CS. Could someone please post specs of a pc that would be in that price range for me because i have no idea. Later

P.S. I dont want a compac or gateway or any other retail computer. Peace

this post should be in the Tech Forum. And as for your question, since you are looking to get an assembled computer rather than a branded one, you should go for this configuration: AMD 3200+ (At least) or Pentium 4 3.2 GHz Asus or Intel motherbaord depending on your processor GeForce 6800 with 256MB RAM PCI-e 1GB RAM running at 533MHz 120 GB Segate HDD @ 7200 RPM or a SATA Drive (whichever you want and can afford) About the monitor, I perfer a CRT over LCD, so if you are looking for a good gaming expereince go for a 19" CRT.

Its tough to say for a thousand bucks. Youll have a bunch of people giving you advise ...they talk about raptor hard drives....7800gtx..and crap...come on now....not for a thousand bucks. Make sure you reuse your old moniter if your on a budget...... Building one isnt bad at all do some reaserch.....youll get stuck with an intregrated video mother board......and you dont want that, I bought a gateway once for about 1400 including warrenty...and it was a big rip off..seriously. Do some reasearch..everyone is helpful in the forums..go to tech forums...look up other info besides on here..and you can do it. I built mine and it was my first one.....saved a bunch of money. Oh and dont forget that windows will cost extra unless you can reuse a copy or get it oem from newegg with a dvd drive.....I got my copy of professional for a 140 bucks..along with a 45 dollar dvd rw...not too bad.

do research and make your desicion, but it takes a lot of power from a graphics card to run this game on high. Youll also want to have at least a gig of ram...probly 2 for playing on high. You may have to make some sacrifices.

You can do real well for 1500-2000

Amd seems to be the gamers choice altough I built an intel system. Video cards are a hard choice because you have die hard nvidia and die hard ati fans....im ati but I take in both sides.......I guess I just always root for the underdog. Make sure you get a good card...compare piplines..shaders...256 mg or higher and stick with a well known brand.....Asus is my fav.

For the wave of the future I guess building an SLI system would be the best thing to do. Dual core? just make sure what you buy will last three years, believe me because after that, its time for another one. If you need to play on high.
