I would like someone to build me a computer that I can play Battlefield 2 using ALL the graphics.

A friend said to check out Newegg? or something like that online via his email and I did, only I have no dang clue what I am looking at or for.

I have $1200 dollars set aside for just the case and componets, I already have a monitor.


If needs be I can bump it up to $1700 but come on... I only play Battlefield2.

Also, I am cheap, so give me model #'s and such so I can get my stuff off eBay or wherever.

That's it!

This is what you need

This is where you can get it

Someone may be able to configure a PC for you but it may take some time. It will help if you take a look around and give us some suggestions as to what you want. Also be advised that it is not recommended you purchase parts off of E-bay as you can't be sure what your getting and returns or warranties are questionable at best. The decision is ultimately up to you and we will help you as much as possible.

I also recently built a gaming system that is working wonderfully with Halo, Call of Duty 4 Modern warfare as well as many others. I purchased everything at these two places online,
I only spent around 4 or 500$ and it's a screamer (by my standards).It was simple to assemble and I have yet to find a game it won't run.
Here's what I built,

ECS AMD690GM-M2 AM2 AMD 690G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane 2.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor - OEM

OCZ Platinum Revision-2 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Dual Channel Memory (2 x 1024MB)

ThermalTake TMG A3
CPU Cooling Fan for AMD AM2/K8

Samsung 200GB SERIAL ATA HD 7200/8MB/SATA-3G

WD Caviar 80GB SATA-3G HD 7200/8MB/SATA-3G

NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT 256MB PCIe w/DVI/TV-OUT

Lite-ON 20X DVDRW SATA LH-20A1S-12 Int No SW OEM

SAMSUNG Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe - OEM

Rosewill RCR-102 52-in-1 USB 2.0 Card Reader

TP-Link TL-WN651G Wireless G Network Adapter - 108Mbps, 802.11g, PCI

Leadtek WinFast HDTV Cinema PCI TV Tuner - ATSC, NTSC, DVR, All-in-1 Remote, Video Converter, EPG, Direct Burn-to-Disc, iPod/PSP Support

Logitech USB cordless keyboard and mouse

The only thing I didn't replace was my monitor.

P.S. I would recommend a different MOBO though since ECS isn't the most reliable company in the world. Maybe instead try this MOBO, MSI K9AG Neo2-Digital AMD 690G Socket AM2 Motherboard.
