if you're using something like a 21" 1600x900... it'll take less GPU power to hit that 40fps than if you're on 1080p
These guys have given you some decent ideas... but here's another one... check out craigslist/ebay for a used rig.
I just sold my old machine for $450 - FX8120, ASUS mobo, nxzt phantom case, 500w psu, superclock GTX460, 8gb ddr3 1600, 1tb 7200rpm West. digital
I looked around CL and ebay and that seemed to be a fair going rate... and that will be much better that what you're looking at new.
just a thought...
Technically, he needs everything, lol.
He needs a monitor, keyboard, mouse and the desktop.
Like I said, for some reason he want a low budget gaming laptop, and I can't convince him.
He said he's going to wait till Spring or technically Summer to get a gaming desktop.
Bah, he never listen to me no matter how much useful tips I gave him.
