Hello,

I sold my Xbox360 so I could build a nice computer and was curious if anyone had a similar PC. Hopefully will have all of these parts put together and running by next Friday, if I can get a PSU and two sticks of 512 ram in time! :D

Anyway, the rundown,

AMD 3800+ dual core processor MSI 7800GTx 1gig of ram (not sure which brand yet) Asus Premium SLI nforce4 mobo w/ heat sink (no fan) OCZ or Antec 500-600w PSU

Anyone have anything similar? Can you run all settings high and still get good performance? :)

Dual cores processors have a problem with CoD2 right now, should be fixed when the first patch comes out, but here is a temporary fix right now http://www.iwnation.com/Forums/index.php?showtopic=15933, don't know if you knew this, but just to let you know.

Take Corsair Micro Module, but without dual core processor. Dual core processor is not important for gaming performance at all. But... if you like to play games and have a lot of other applications opened at the same time, then you don t have a choice but to buy dual core processor. Take TAGAN 480 W with PSU. And one more thing. I recommend taking 3400+ ordinary athlon 64 processor. You ll save a lot of money on it. And with that money buy 1 more gig of ram. Just recommendations. Good luck and I hope you ll enjoy your new computer.

EDIT:

It s not necessary to have too strong processor for gaming. But ram is important. You get better performance with 2 gigs of ram and 3400+ processor than with 1 gig of ram and 3800+ dual core.

I say build the machine your going to build, CoD series doesn't recognize any more than a gig of ram, but adding more ram sure doesn't hurt.

If you have 2 gigs of ram, you can freely disable virtual memory in your Windows.

My PC specs are in my sig. Practactly identicle, except i use a 64 3700+.

The 7800GTX makes short work of CoD2 Demo, it really runs nice, maxed out.

I might be buying new ram soon (Corsair 2 Gigs). Hopefully that will improve alot.

SpoudazoHello,

I bought almost the same stuff from TigerDirect, except that I used an EVGA motherboard and a 7800GT. All of the research I have done says that you should be able to run at max resolution with all of the bells and whistles turned on. Also, the reason I got the Amd X2 3800 was that you can supposedly overclock it to equal a 4600+. Not advising you to do so, but by all accounts it is still very stable. Lots of articles online to show you how.

I'll know more once my stuff gets here tomorrow, and I'll post a followup.

To run COD2 with DX9 enabled, the most important aspect of your system is what TYPE of graphics card you have. DX9 uses Shader Model 3 rendering. If your card doesnt support that, you wont be able to run DX9 effectively, that is, to have it enabled and still get good performance.
