Someone sticky this shit.
Im not normally in this part of the forum, but I was about to post asking about video cards and harddrives and I have noticed only a couple of what computer to buy/build threads
then i guess you should post your question in here, huh
Flaming aside, it might actually be worth making a part selecton guide (with a proper thread title) with some general advice for those who haven't yet decided to commit themselves to getting new parts. And getting it stickied.
Then again, most questions can be answered using the guide I've been linking over and over since first finding it from another member on these forums:

this one's a little simpler

I'd have a hard time promoting a guide which recommends AMD for any machine under 800USD.
Thank you. Finally.
I think it's because the CPU isn't as important as the GPU when playing games.
Nice guides Originality. I didn't even know they existed. This should clear up the fog. Thanks
In certain games its the other way around like WOW, GTA 4, Minecraft and some others.
Meh, I might as well post a request.
I've been wanting a gaming computer for a while. Odds are I won't be able to afford anything too good but an entry level one seems to be the best option. My budget is probably gonna be between $400-$450. I mainly just want to play like TF2 on max settings and most relatively recent games on medium settings. I would highly prefer prebuilt since I honestly don't want to hassle with building my own (I have friends who know how and have done it but I'd rather just have something working out of the box).
Not sure if you can really get built-in wireless but that'd be seriously wanted, seeing as I can't currently get access to a wired connection in my room.
ASUS P8P67 PRO
You'll be all set.
From my calculations and research that's well out of my price range if you're referring to my post.
450USD. Comes with some 24" TN panel, which you could sell and put the money towards a respectable GPU.
+$120 to switch to 1TB hdd? Also it looks like no monitor is included in that build.
Monitor is listed right under the price.
Obviously any upgrades should be purchased from other retailers.
Ah, I missed that part.
Keep saving and get something better, otherwise you'll be disappointed with it in 6 months time and want/need to dish out more $$$ for upgrades.
say that every time , and you won't be getting anywhere .
you just need to know when you think it's the right time .
I was looking into a Windows 7 desktop, but after learning that I needed to buy a supported 1080p monitor, I'm just going with a nice Windows XP. It's what I have already, but it has all the things I need, like 2GB of RAM, 160GB Harddrive, but I was wondering one thing, what type of graphics card does it have?
I want to play games such as: MapleStory, ROBLOX, etc.
Will this graphics card that it has be supported by these games and OpenGL and DirectX and that stuff? Also, will this computer accept my monitor? (it sucks, but I can't spend $100 on a new one.
Please don't tell me that I can just build one cheaper. I am going with this if it is good.
