    PC gaming help!

    Okey-dokey, Well I'm probably getting a NVIDIA 8600 graphics card for Christmas and then my computer will be thus:

    Athlon 64 X2 Duel Core Processor 4200+ 2.2 GHz

    2 gigs of RAM

    And the 8600

    So I don't know much about computer stuff but apearently this setup would be able to play most games at at least low quality.

    I looked some games up and I'm pretty sure I could barely play COD4, and I could play UT3 and orange box easy.

    My question is exactly how long would this setup last? Would I have to update my computer fequently?

    I love my wii to death but I've got a bit of a thurst for some good FPS's.
    Wii games: Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Resident Evil 4, Zelda TP, SSX: Blur, Excite Truck, The Godfather, and Mario Kart Wii
    PC games: Call of Duty 4, Halo 1, UT3, F.E.A.R., and The Orange Box.
    PS3 games: Ratchet and Clank F.T.O.D., Resistance 2, Wipeout HD, and MGS4.

    MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT POWER SUPPLY OR ELSE YOUR PC WILL BE FRIED UP!

    ok thats over with...

    * You could run CoD4 on Medium/High Settings (Mostly on Medium for smoother gameplay)
    * You could play UT3 and Orange Box on Medium/High Too.
    * I would say your set up right now is great but some PC gamers are readying for the Nvidia 9000 Series
    * Your set up will last you about another year to play all the games on Medium/High
    * You can last 2+ Years if you have your set up on low settings during gameplay

    BTW: Are you running Windows Xp or Windows Vista?

    Happy Gaming!

    Hehe thats why I quit computer gaming... I hate upgrading PC Video Cards, too expensive but its your choice. =]

    I have Vista.

    And yes I know, I have to check if i need a new PSU.

    I'm glad to hear that will last a year, I may or may not upgrade after that, I just figure I have a decent computer so I might as well spend $100 on a graphics card instead of getting a 360 Which is quite expensive.

    Will my processor really be good enough for a year?
    I think it's like one of the lowest required ones for COD4.

    I said your processor will last at least 6 more monthes to about a year and a half. Since most morden games right now need Intel P4+, that AMD has the power between Intel P4 and Intel Dual Core 2. So your processor is decent for now unless you want to upgrade to a Intel Dual Core 2 which will last you 2 - 3 more years.

    Hopefully my predictions are correct =]

    Happy December =]
