    hey guys I've been needing a computer for awhile now so I've finally started to search for a new one but to no avail.

    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz Processor or equivalent
    AMD Phenom II X3 Triple-Core 2.8 GHz or greater
    RAM: 4 GB (Vista) or 2 GB (XP)
    Video: ATI 3850 512 MB or greater
    NVIDIA 8800GTS 512 MB or greater
    DVD ROM (Physical copy)

    Those are the minimum specs I was kind of hoping for. If anybody could help me out that would be great.

    my budget is about one grand but im not sure if I would need that much.

    For 1k you can probably afford Core i7 or an am3 quad.

    Yeah, an AMD quad sounds about right, do you need anything else, like a moniter, mouse, keyboard, or speakers? And you could get some nice stuff for 1000, much better than your minimum.

    Well I've been looking at


    It doesn't seem to bad although I would be buying an NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT and a new power supply.

    So you're in Canadaland?
    When do you plan on buying this?

    Then wait until then; prices will have changed by then.
