    How Cheap?

    How cheap do you think you can get a desktop computer that will EASILY run crap like black ops on highest settings?

    Want me to try to find all the parts you need for your budget? Tell me how much and I'll try to put something together.

    LOL...
    €1500 or $1500?
    When you mean €1500,- EUR you can definitely get a hardcore game pc for that

    And for I think €800/$1000 or so you can get a PC that's good enough for the next few years

    Since he is American, i guess it's dollar. You can get something quite good for this price. I'll make something too when i'll have some spare time.

    Add a HDD and a DVD player from you old comp, or add like $50 on to that. This computer would last you at the very least 3 more years to come, before upgrading would even be a thing to consider. And trust me, this would last a ton better than any pre-fab shit you get at walmart or from online stores.

    Also, sub an HD4850 for that 5850, and get only 4 GB of RAM and you will knock a large chunk out of that price as well, and still have a really powerful comp. Cass arent necessary, and you can find even cheaper ones. I like NZXT though because their shit seems to work pretty good.

    well for 630 you have a pc (build on a website) with quadcore
    than you only have to buy a graphic card
    arround 160 for good one

    so you get to €800,-

    euro's

    Lol, I had a 600 euro laptop which could run it on extra game settings. You don't need to spend alot of money, you just need to find the right economy parts for your pc.

    You can always get a PCI sound card.

    How hard is it to put all this together, or is it something you'd get help with?
