All Around Decent Computer (Compatible Parts?)
Posted: 8 Oct 2012 09:41
I'm looking to put together a decent computer that will play Starcraft II and Borderlands 2 smoothly but also perform well with Windows 7 (I have XP now), Photoshop, 3DS Max and even video editing.
My budget is roughly $1,000 total (but I'm flexible) and this is what I have put together on Newegg.
Also note that I already have a 1920x1200 monitor (the resolution I always use),
, mouse, speakers and also a GeForce GTX 285 which I will keep for a few more months until I upgrade. When I do upgrade, I'll pick one of the top graphics cards from this list that's under $300 that's also a good value for the price. Right now it would be the GTX 480 or 670 as they seem cheap for their performance rating. I don't plan on doing SLI.
