Speaking of which. I'm about to buy a new computer for gaming and development. I was going to open a new thread asking for advice, but rather to use this thread. I'm not much of a gamer but like occasionally to play some good FPS. So basically I'm looking for a pretty much high-end desktop which will be able to run latest games (e.g. COD4, Far Cry 2 etc) on max specs at good fps. My budget (no screen included) is about 1000$.
I'm mostly conflicted about CPU (between Intel dual and quad core - if anyone has experience in both, I'd very happy to hear) and graphic card.
use the geek thread..
what country are you in? are you comfortable with making your own?
