help making a computer for girlfriend

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
guys i need your help in some things here...
I need to make a computer fir my girlfriend.
she gave me a 300€ budget

i made 4 different configurations, i just need to know which one would have better performance.

she likes to play games...like half life 2, counter strike, FEAR, command and conquer, so thats mainly what the computer will be there for.

the configurations are:

ASrock am2bf3_vsta
western digital 160GB sata II
Kingston 1024 MB 667mhz

and i swapped graphics card, and CPU

CPU AMD X2---->3600||||||3600||||||4200||||||4200|
GPU GF--------->7300GT|||7600GS|||7300GT||7600GS|T

the first two are the ones that are in the budget....if the performance increase justifies then i guess that she wont mind spending a little more to play a lot better....

tnhx in advance guys!!

Yes those are the Brisbanes. CPU is a great budget choice. I would spend you money on the RAM capacity (i. e. 2Gb of cheaper non-OCing RAM) and on the GFX card.
Edit:
Why Windsor? Brisbane is the same price....:

You are correct, 90nm process is Windsor, but the 65nm is better for heat dissipation and efficiency.
Oh ok sorry my man I didn't notice your location!

Your post is kind of confusing. Is is either 3600/7300GT or 3600/7600GS?

What resolution will she game at?

get the 3600. that'll be more than enough...but go for the best GPU you can. It'll really help in games like FEAR... 7600GT or better.

Overclock her a little bit and you'll be great. (the computer, not the girl)
