As the title says, i'm looking for some suggestions. In the next two weeks i'll be looking to get into the market of some good gaming. the key things i'm looking for are: performance and upgradeable.
meaning i'll probably be looking to get the most out of 500-700 dollars (price range) in the next two weeks and then add on some goodies like a high end video card, etc in the next month or so.
I would prefer a pentium w/ 800mhz fsb. a solid mb that can handle hyper threading and can be upgraded for at least a little while before it becomes obsolete. a large hard drive w/ a good amount of cache as well as 1gb ram.
The people i used to purchase my computers from have gone out of business. And since i haven't really been keeping track of where to get some good deals... I thought i would ask you all.
What would you do for a good gaming computer if you had, 500-700 dollars to spend? I'm no stranger to building a system so that wouldn't be a problem... but i wouldn't mind a system set up for me either.
My current system is a athlon xp 1700. with 1gb of sdram and a 64 meg geforce video card. it worked well, but is a few years old and can no longer handle the games i like to play (bf1942, halo at good settings).
Any suggestions would be helpfull... Thanks!!
