I would go ahead and replace that GeForce GT 220.

Not a gaming card at all.

How fast is that Ram? What is the wattage of your PSU? what kind of Mobo is that CPU going on?

Awww, darn it lool. I guess I'll just have to wait to replace so I need like a Geforce GTX card.
Well, I did download some benchmark demo games from a website so it can do a PC performances test
Turns out Resident Evil 5, Street Fighter IV and Devil May Cry 4 all ran well. Got a B-C
I know I can't play certain games at a maximum level.

Where can I find all that information AstaLaVista?
and thanks for the warm welcome cheeriokilla haha thanks for that website too xD

You can build a cheaper AM3 system, as I did here:

Excellent gaming performance in 7

I'll be upgrading the RAM to 8GB ASAP.

How can you be certain he can build it cheaper...he never mentioned what price he is getting on this machine.

Intel is always more expensive.

But the CPU is only 1 component in the whole build. So, while 1 part could cost more, some of the other parts could cost less. Without knowing the price he is looking at, I cannot for sure say one way or another whether another option would be better.

And sometimes the Intel costs more, but the associated performance gains or reduced cooling needs could justify that extra cost.

*facepalm*. I know he is asking about an entirely new PC....but he never mentioned what he is paying...so who knows!. It's not like an Intel computer always costs $3,000 and and AMD always costs less than $1,500. We don't have enough information to make sweeping statements like you can build what I built and get it a lot cheaper when he didn't mention his price. Granted, maybe we can once we find out price, but without that....I can make no such claims with certainty.

Sometimes I have no idea why I continue to post in certain threads.
