Thread: need some help

  1. #1
    i was wondering if someone could help me. i'm trying to build a relatively decent system that will play recent games. Now i already have a dvd-rw, and a monitor, and all the things like that. i just need a motherboard, a cpu, ram, and a psu.

    how "recent" are we talking here?
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    You need to state your budget.

    Your card is AGP and frankly there is little point in upgrading a platform that doesn't include PCI-e.
    Add another $100-200 to the budget and we can talk.

    I built my 64 bit system on an AGP board
