I found a site that sells DIY PC bundles(links below), but they all include Radeon graphics cards. I've used GeForce cards in my two previous PC's, so I'm unfamiliar with Radeon cards. I've read that Radeon is more powerful, but can't run some games, while GeForce is compatible with all games. I'll go for Radeon if you think these builds are good enough. I separated the sections with quotes, because I thought it would be clearer. Is it working?
Here are the three that I'm considering.
The site is in Norwegian, but that doesn't matter. You can see the list of components when you scroll down.
A few buyers reported problems with this one. It kept turning itself off. They changed some BIOS settings to fix it. CPU Enhanced Halt, CPU thermal monitor and C3/C6/C7 State Support. I don't know what any of that means, but I'll be able to figure it out if I buy this one.
No notes about this one.
This one had very good reviews. There was one guy who said he could run two copies of Crysis 2, at the same, at max settings without lag.
I'm wondering why this one is cheaper than the others, when it can perform so well. I really want to buy this one, because of the price, but most of all, I want a machine that will last for a long time.
I'm leaning towards the AMD Phenom II X6, since I have to buy a monitor, speakers and mouse and keyboard on top of this. Also, I don't think the bundles include network cards, so, that too.
Now, for the other parts that I need. I'm gonna put them here so you can see if they're compatible. Because, I have no idea.
The monitor. This is the cheapest available on this site.
Mouse and keyboard. They have this "Unifying" thing that let's me use only one USB port for both of them. So, that's nice.
Now, I need a network card. I gotta have a wireless card, but I might need a non-wireless* if WLAN doesn't work, for some reason.
I don't know what to get, so here's a list of wireless cards that do what I need them to do. I would appreciate it if you could help me pick one.
And here's a list of non-wireless* ones.
*Is there a better word for that?
As for speakers, I found these. They got good reviews and are very cheap.
So, that's that. What do you think? Is the cheap bundle powerful enough to run future games? And what network cards should I get? Thanks in advance.
