So, my cousin has been fiddling lately on my computer playing SC2, a bit of D3 (during the Beta Weekend) and he was saying he might want a computer so we could play together. Now our issue is we are on a VERY tight budget so cost is definitely an issue. However if he decided to pick up and try out GW2 down the road we would rather it not be much of an issue, any possible "oh we will need to upgrade that before we play this" situations would be greatly appreciated to be AVOIDED.
so what i was thinking is getting a i5 2500k? but would that be overkill?
tldr; need a cheap comp build that will play GW2 on decent graphics with no issue (this game should cover graphics requirements). other games that might be played would include; SC2, D3, GW2, WoW, Civilization, AoE 2/3, CnC. that should cover it. also thinking of using our 39" tv for a monitor, would possibly look at an actual desktop monitor in the future.
