Eh, my eMachines (Though not much of it is eMachines anymore) doesn't do too well as far as decent gaming goes. So I'm looking for parts to get this rig up and running on the gaming scene. Currently running Windows XP (Home edition). I'm mainly looking into being able to run the following: Far Cry 2 Fallout 3 Left 4 Dead Call of Duty 4 It probably is unrealistic to expect high settings and a playable framerate all while not breaking bank. But that is what I'm shooting for Btw I'm not a hardware guy and am nowhere near knowledgeable about components working together or anything like that (software guys ftw =P). I was looking at this for my video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130339 Anyone know if that is good or not? Reviews look good. I would still need a good CPU and a motherboard that can hold all this and however much RAM I can put on the board. Any recommendations?
