I remember playing Tera during the open beta several weeks ago and it was VERY demanding on the GPU and CPU so I think you're better off building your own CPU at this point since it will be a good learning experience and because this is OCN ^_^. I'll have a look around to see what deals are around in a bit but you're looking at at least a GTX 560 depending on the resolution of your monitor and an i5. Do you happen to have a microcenter in your area?

Tera is pretty GPU demanding.

I would recommend building one. I nearly went that ibuypower/cyberpowerpc route. I'm very glad I didn't. smile.gif

Yeah, still waiting on more information from OP though since there isn't much to work with in terms of hardware they already have and experience/familiarity with computers in general.

That's what a lot of us are here to do ^_^, do you have a monitor already or is that something that you'll need to purchase as well?
