That's terrible. Llano isn't meant for gaming. If you really don't want to build one, get this one: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16883229333

You could build a very good computer for $800
It's all about the game and how you play it, All about control and if you can take it
All about your debt and if you can pay it, It's all about pain and who's gonna make it

I dont think youll do much gaming with that..

try like am AMD x4..

you may want to put a bit more into the graphics card.. like a 6850ish, or a 6790


So you need to order from NCIX? you in the up north..?

Nnewegg has some better priceing on some things..

you can ge tthe cooler master haf 912 (case) for about 40-50ish after MIR)
its a great case for the money, mine cable manegment, and construction.


that memory is good, no problems there

NCIX has local stores in the GTA (3), so it is useful, plus they will price match newegg.ca

I would upgrade the processor to a Phenom II 945, its better, and please, dont get an ASRock board.

Yes, the mother board should come with Sata 3 cables (which is how you plug your HDD/SSD/DVD into the mobo.) and the video card just slots into the mobo. Then your PSU should have all the power cables needed for everything plus a few extra.
Please go and watch the newegg three part building of a pc video, it's really useful and can save you from some expensive mishaps.

Then why did you ask of they came with the necessary cables?
Also, the short form for motherboard is mobo, not MB, cause MB is mega bytes. :P

oh, yeah, the case comes with all the cables for front panel stuff, but you need cables to connect your monitor, so make sure you have the right ones for that.

If your video card has the HDMI output, then you can.

Why dont you guys like AsRock, they're part of Asus

Or instead of a Rotor, get a used Pinokio or Prophecy and use the left over money for cool shit, like taquitos and hookers.

ok, cause a real monitor has better quality picture upclose, cause thats what they are made for, so if your sitting half a foot from a tv, the picture wont be nearly as good as a monitor, but at 4-5 feet, you should be fine.

Why dont you guys like AsRock, they're part of Asus

and because its an off-brand, sure its ASUS, but the ASUS quality isnt their, as evident from ALL of the TONS of horror stories.

Nvm, saw the $800.

http://secure.newegg...Number=17332011

That will play the games you listed on max, and you should be able to play games like BF3 on medium settings (which still looks amazing).

It's $770, which leaves room for tax. And if you can get the stuff from Microcenter (in-store only) you can save $60 more ($20 off for the cpu, and $40 off when you buy a compatible mobo for the cpu)

Yeah my ASRock didn't even ship with the correct settings for Windows.

I know that the 6850 will be more than enough, but let's future proof. He says he plays CoD. Maybe in the next 40 years CoD will decide to upgrade their engine, and he needs a new GPU...

But really, the 6850 is more expensive for as big as a 7%performance increase, yet the 6850 can OC to the same speed as the 6870.

Might i suggest against the Antec 300 case.. almost no way to magane your cables, youll have a large rats next that restricts airflow..
Teh cooler master HAF 912 is better, and i think it end up being cheaper.. it really is a wonderful case for the money.. As long as you also like the looks, its not the most super clean case, but its still nice..
