Humodour Posted April 5, 2009 Share Posted April 5, 2009 I just got my $950 stimulus payment from the government and I figured now is as good a time as any to buy a new PC. Problem is, last I heard DDR1 was uber cool, and the Athlon 1600+ was the ultimate gamer CPU. And it was unheard of to find over 256mb of RAM on a graphics card... except those weird Voodoo cards which were 10 years ahead of their time. So, what's the dealio? - I'm aiming for 2 (ideally 4) gb of DDR3 RAM. - I want a graphics card that can play recent FPS games moderately well. - I want at least two cores (no more than 4), clocking at least 2Ghz (but ideally 2.6 or more) Is this feasible under $1000 AUD? Or should I just get the Mac Mini with Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2 Ghz, 2Gb DDR3 RAM @ 1066 Mhz and a nVidia 9400? It's $1032 AUD with my student discount. It wouldn't play the latest games but I've got a backlog anyway (NWN2, Witcher, Bioshock, etc). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
