Gaming rig for my brother - Page 2

post #11 of 13
If you're getting a video card sometime soon then integrated should be fine until then.

I think a lot of us are just surprised that you're building a gaming computer without one of, if not the most important component of gaming.

Can't comment on AMD CPU, not familiar with them. I'm in the same mode as most of the people here, the waiting for bulldozer mode.

Just for example what would you recommend for a 12 year old that only plays call of duty, combatarms, crossfire, mostly the free fps games and steam games like the ones that are in Valve Complete Pack?

Sorry just having a hard time deciding on what to get

decent deal to keep you under 500$ and still get more than a dual core theres better

deals but it depends on his other needs and if a microcenter is close by imo
