Yeah I need to get a new computer and if the only way to get a good cheap gaming computer is to build one then I might do that.

Right now I have:
mobile AMD Athlon ™ 2.13ghz
512mb RAM
BFG GeForce 6200 256mb OC
A sound card thats older than jesus (prolly from 1998 :thumbsup: )

I need something that could run bf2 and games with high graphics like that easily. I currently have to lay it with everything on the lowest settings.

What people could also do to help would be post a place to get a good motherboard and tell me how many ghz, maybe more ram, better graphics card, sound card, or just post a whole computer for me.

Thanks :huh:

how cheap? do you have a budget in mind? I always parts hunt at newegg.com

you can check out the public wish lists section on newegg to get some ideas. to start off here is a list of parts MaxPC magazine had for their $1k gamer budget build. it is a little cheaper and a little dated now, after a few months, but change the parts you'd like to update and you have a guaranteed gaming PC for short $

Yeah, building one isn't that difficult, finding the right parts is the hardest.

Putting a computer together isn't that hard from...building a mid sized Lego set.

An easy way to get a cheap gaming computer is to buy a pre-made one, or a barebone kit, they usually come with a Case, motherboard and a processor. And then just add on from there.

Newegg and TigerDirect are good online retailers.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
