i dont know much about PCs, and im still on the hunt for a cheap PC that can run Dota2 on high settings at 1280x1024 ish resolution.
I only play Dota 2
I have found this PC for 420€
Amd Phenom II X6 Black Edition 1090T (6x3,2GHz)
2x2GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1333
Sapphire Radeon HD6770 1024MB
Sharkoon T9 Green Value Edition Case
Samsung SpinPoint 500GB
This is the second PC for 450€ + a Logitech g15
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @2,7GHz 8MB QPI DDR3 LGA1366
ATI Radeon HD4890 1024MB DDR5 PCIe active & passive cooling
6 GB DDR 3
ATX NZXT Lexa Blackline
LG DVD+-R/RW Dual Layer DVD-Burner+LG DVD RAM
The first one has more infos on the parts, and looks much better for the price i think.
But which of those would be better for Dota2 ?
The second one is a tiny bit better... however with overclocking it will blow the first one out of the water.
Only thing it lacks is support for DirectX 11 which really isnt needed for Dota2
That i7 9xx wont blow the 1090 out of the water at anything. Those are on par w/ each other now the 2500/2600/2700k will all smash the hell out of it. 1st pc will play your resolution on maximum. It will play modern FPS around medium maybe even high but not w/o a new gpu.
