My Current rig Processor-Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.00GHz (would I have to buy a cpu fan or does that come included when you buy a new one) Gpu-NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT(Little side note this used to be my cousins gpu but it over heated and it was unusable blue lines appeared everywhere)
I took it off his hands and baked it now works fine) Ram 2GB i think there ddr2s Motherboard-Intel Corporation D945GNT Monitor Acer AL1916W LCD HDD I have two of them one is 149GB then 2nd is 232GB PSU Standard 300w
OK so i want to build a new gaming pc with a price range of 400-500 dollars. There's a couple things i don't really care about upgrading like my monitor,hdds and my cd drives really don't care about upgrading them. I want to get a decent pc which i could play bf3,wow,lol, and pretty much any other game i would like to play down the road without having to suffer fps lag and other performance hindering things. i have a basic understanding of computer things but the amount of different companies and brands really confuse me i cant tell what makes which thing better then the other.
ps. i was thinking of cross firing my gpu with the one you guys recommend.
