here's a recent guide with an intel and amd based gaming build. radeon hd 4770 cards are very hard to find now, so substitute an hd 4850 for the same money.
Within a month I plan to purchase a customized gaming PC either from cyberpowerinc.com or a local computer shop. Since I primarily am a console gamer, I was wondering what specs I should be looking at so that games on my computer will look better than it does on gaming consoles. I'm planning to spend $800 on this excluding an OS and a monitor. I plan to play on 1680x1050 resolution.
I generally would want games to play at high settings at maybe 50-60fps average.
Any help would be appreciated. If this is not possible on an $800 budget, feel free to post the cheapest build possible.
