I'm going to buy a new computer. I've got around 900 AUD to spend and I'm looking for a nice, simple system that can run counter strike source with a nice fps average rate of around 60-70.

All advice, tips and info is welcomed.

Well I don't know how Australian dollars work, but I will say that The source engine is very forgiving, and you don't have to splurge on the latest in graphics technology in order to run it on high. If you build it your self make sure you have at least 512 ram, thought if you can afford it get a gigabyte.

im not sure what is worth more a USD or an AUD. but if you have access to Dell.com you can buy a dimension desktop or a fair XPS 410. i haven't been to dell.com in a while so i don't know what the prices are now. it won't hurt to check there.

Oy, well in that case, you might be hard pressed to get a decent gaming system.

Virtually no major manufacturor is going to sell a desktop that has a decent video card built in at that price.

And invididual parts are so much more expensive in Austraila, that building your own computer will also be expensive.

well in that case if its 700 USD than you can probably get a midrange dimension desktop. but don't forget when you buy a comp you gotta add S&H.
