not bad, except you don't have a monitor or operating system. i also recommend a mouse and keyboard, maybe speakers too just for kicks.

Just a quick reply. Go Win7 64 bit, get more RAM, and another HD. Your life is going to suck is that one goes down. Get a smaller SSDD as your OS drive and use the 1TB for storage, back up and gaming files, that way when you need to format, you don't have to reinstall a bunch of stuff or lose anything. And get a honking huge monitor! Smiley: grin

You'd better better FPS with a CoolerMaster HAF case.

Finally, when you begin playing with nothing but the highest caliber of players that all have amazing decks, you realize it's all luck.

600W power supply, so cute! Smiley: inlove

Great rig, though. Looks like an upgraded version of my old one. I've been an Intel fanboy since Core 2, but AMD used to be my sweetheart. Back when I had my 500 MHz AMD with a Voodoo 2 GFX card. Good times.

That was before my first love, though. 133 MHz of pure Intel Pentium ***. That thing ran Unreal Tournament despite the requirements of 500 MHz or more.

Man, I feel old. 133 MHz. Single core.

Oh, well, about the settings. I ran them fairly high on my old rig. Not maxed, but close. It was an old Intel Core 2 2.4 GHz quad with 4 GB RAM and a Geforce 8800 GT.

I should reinstall the game and see what I can run it at now. I'm running EVE Online and WoW at maximum settings and my GFX card doesn't even break 60ºC. I love upgrading hardware.
Please "talk up" if your comprehension white-shifts. I will use simple-happy language-words to help you understand.
