    It'd go for like ~1200 USD in Sweden.
    I personally use a single 550 Ti in my computer, I haven't ever dipped below 60 frames in WoW, SCII or Amnesia, the Dark Descent.
    While the GPU may be weaker than some others on the market, It's still not the worst, and will work wonders @1600x900

    if both are yes then im sold
    I currently have that card, it runs pretty good, 35-50 fps. You will need to turn down the shadows, but over all its not bad for 'now' Save up some money, and you can shell out on a decent card down the road.

    It's very much better than your GPU. I'm probably a bit too picky. It's a very good deal. Very. As long as you keep your monitor as-is. :P

    Uh. WoW and SCII are CPU-based games. You can run a much worse GPU as long as you have a good CPU.
    In that low resolution, though, yea. It'll work.
    And you also have dipped below 60 frames, even 60 frames per second in those games.

    Most likely not on Ultra, especially high texture filtering. The 550ti performs about the same as an ATI 6770, which is an entry level gaming card.

    you could just buy an external case at frys or something and hook it up via usb to your computer and transfer stuff
    you could put the actual drive in the computer you'll buy

    "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti; this GPU provides outstanding graphics for all of your most intense games" But the seller says it can run all of your intense games on outstanding graphics!

    No really, it is a decent gpu for his pricerange :P It certainly isn't the best.

    If he remembers his login details for everything, most companies will let you download a program again once you've bought it. (i.e. Minecraft is free to download, but you need an account that's bought it to play).

    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...233&CatId=2783 you'll need something like that

    DEPENDING on what kind of drive your current is, i would assume it's sata as that is what most are these days.

    just rip it apart, and you'll see how to connect it, if not you can youtube it and i'm sure there's something there for you.

    As they said earlier you should wait a little before you buy an hdd unless your really low on space.. I was lucky to pick up 4 additional TB of hdd's a couple of weeks before because one of my 1tb externals broke .. so i was left with a lonely 1tb! so now im up to around 5 =).

    Also build it yourself, its pretty easy. Just follow the instructions in the manual and you are set. It took me a couple of hours to get it done the first time but damn is it fun! And it might just be my paranoia but i would recomend using some latex gloves or something incease you have a charge in your fingers.. It kinda sucks if you were to fry something before it's even started.

    Not in 1920x1080 no. But he plays in 1600x900, which is 69.4% of the pixels.

    Take a look in your phonebook, or do a google search, check craigslist etc... There's nerds everywhere, I'm sure you can find someone to do it for you rather than hhaving to risk it on mmo-champ

    I would be hesitant on doing this. There will be people everywhere trying to scam you, so I would advice against it.
    The PC you got suggested is a very good deal. I'm not trying to push you into anything, but I wouldn't trust anonymous people on the Internet with actual physical hardware at their physical location.

    I don't know of any, nor would I trust any, I would honestly do it myself.
    I was in your position a year ago, I just did it myself, it's pretty straight-forward and easy to do.

    Or once, again you can youtube it.
