Hello all, I'm looking to get a new computer, mostly for gaming, as my current 6-year old laptop just does not cut it anymore (some of you may recall my thread querying about external graphics cards...yeah, not worth it...). My budgest is quite low, so don't laugh! I don't need a monster, just about anything will be an upgrade i guess. My budget is £400-£500 pounds, preferably closer to £400...It needs to include a monitor in that price, as well as keyboard. The only thing I can and will shift over is my mouse, which I'm just plain used to (not that this saves me much money, sigh...). I haven't looked at specifics, but I'm thinking a dual core, as opposed to a quad core - I hear/heard most games don't utilise four cores, some not even 2, so i'm hoping to save money there (unless I'm speaking nonsense; also quite possible!) The main thing will be a nice graphics card I guess, will a 768MB one do, or go for 1GB? Again, price is a real constraint, i know. As for RAM, will 2GB do? I don't plan on playing Crysis at full settings or anything here, and I know I couldn't with that budget, but things like WoW or other newer games at medium settings perhaps? I'm not sure where I should buy from to get the best deals/quality/assurance of good products, so if anyone could help me out that would be great. I've never overclocked, and it does sound a bit daunting, although I'm not completely computer-illiterate and could figure it out, especially with the guides here, but having said that, I just don't want to do it and risk any parts being damaged. Looking forward to useful replies! Thanks. Oh, and almost forgot, don't need an OS, have windows xp sitting around and will stick with that, nor do I need antivirus - have that too.
