won't i need to be playing COD4.2 @ 120+ fps to take advantage of such a great monitor for fps gaming?

look at my sig below, is it a major upgrade for me or what?
that build reccomended above would max it out just fine, i can easily max it out at 1680x1050 with mine and that build has more OC'ing headroom

Get new AMD 4-core or even 6-core when you get the money.
Option 3:
If your system has sky's the limit upgradeability (good case, etc.) then this is most certainly worth it for the time being.
If this works, it's win-win for you buddy
i'm guessing amd has the best bang-for-buck, but i'm totally new to them

not trying to pick sides or anything

i'm just new to building my own system, but i do have some background experience

took a A+ class, etc..

the thing is i wouldn't want to upgrade for a good 2-3 years if i made this computer

so i want to disguss, what is a good price point

something is telling me i wont be purchasing anything until next year

i feel like im rushing into it, and i believe the OC vets..i haven't done any research, and last time i rushed something.. i made a bad choice


i say i might put a hault to this topic

because battlefield games are the ones i will be into


so i need a computer that supports DX11, and will score me 80+ fps in the newest games that will be out

now this might be hard, because i doubt any has the inside scoop on what these new games will require...but im sure we can make an educated guess


ive been looking at the samsung 2233RZ 120hz monitr...but i feel like the monitor needs to be planned out first..then a rig

do i want to game at 1680x1050 (and not be able to watch movies at 1080p, and save money on NOT buying a blue ray player)

or do i want to game/watch videos on a monitor that supports 1920x1200 (i dont mind having black bars when watching movies, because the higher resolution in gaming makes the most difference)

so that being said, i really need to hear some replies

please, feel free to chime in.. i really want to do some research


some new stuff: fermi, hsi big bang, and new ati/nvidia cards coming out

with all these new terms i brought up, is it worth the wait?


i only have $350 saved up, and have no job yet

in 2-3 months i will have $450 forsure!

the thing is... if i get a job... this is how im thinking

drop 700 on a computer, and 2,000 on rims for a car (if i get a car)

or drop 2,700, and end up upgrading my computer later down the road

keep in mind if i buy the $700 set-up i would most likely upgrade the same time if i had the more expensive system

Fry's is selling an X2 245 system with 20" screen/keyboard/mouse/speakers for $400. Throw a 9800GT/4770 in there and you're good to go @ $500.

except for the caviar black @ $50
