Im looking for some advice on building a new gaming rig,how clued up on modern gaming builds are you LGF?
Based on a quad cpu with a XFX or BFG 8800gt gpu and a minimum of 4gb crucial or kingston ram
I think Gribble would be best to ask on this as he seems to be the only other obsessive gamer that plays my fav type of games ie. BF series,TFC/2 CS:S
im desperate to run crysis and the left4dead games
But i seem to remember you saying you're a bit of a gamer so id like to know what you think
My current rig is the only one of my 3 that hasnt blown up yet
512 Ram running at the blistering speed of 233mhz
passive cooled AGP ati gpu thats about 9 yrs old and was sh*t even then
dvd rewriter[if you put a dvd and press run the whole system crashes so im scared to even touch it
Im a gamer, my Rig was built a year ago but is still more than capable of anything thats current. (Left 4 Dead is awesome by the way, when you get it, i'll have a game with you)
Intel quad core 6600
2gb Ram (should really go for 4gb though)
and 500GB HDD
Fancy case and a decent PSU (dont skimp on the PSU if it goes down, it takes the rest of the system to the parts shop in the sky with it.)
Ive probably had it 12-14mnths and it cost me a bargain £550 to build at the time. Obviously it will cost less now.
My advice would be to go Nvidia, to go Intel, and to go 4 GB.
