I'll wait for offical confirmation.

Remember a year ago the GeForce 9800s were expensive as well as a lot of the other parts for that machine and in the last year all prices have dropped a lot. 9800s cost close to $100 and the newer Intel chips forced down older chip prices.

There are caviates to this lower computer price than what people think.

$700 for a PC to play one game, when you can buy a Ps3 or 360 and play the new Far Cry which in my opinion looks just as good or possibly better than Crysis!

@Tempist.

The 9800's havnt been out for a year. The 9800gt has only been out for a month, and its the exact same card as the 8800gt. Also the E7300 is one of the newest intel chips out, but it wasnt intended for high end desktop's. Still a great CPU though.

designed to run crysis warhead at 30 fps on high. didn't say what resolution they were running it at but my guess is 1024X768. the computer doesn't come with keyboard, mouse or monitor. not even sure if that includes windows or not but it should.

If Crysis is anything to go by. This PC will crumble under the might of "Very High" settings. I don't expect Warhead to fare any better.

I can build a better Crysis "High" setting PC less for what they want.

ZOTAC 8800GT - $120 (because the 9800GT is just a rebrand)

AMD Phenom X4 9550 Agena - $140

GIGABYTE GA-MA770-DS3 AM2+/AM2 ATX - $80

A-DATA 4GB(2x 2GB) DDR2-800 5-5-5-18 - $70

Total Price- $591 (before tax, before shipping)

So there, A quad-core CPU, 4GB RAM, an overclockable Mobo, same-quality Video card, DVD-Burner, and 550W PSU for $8 less.

Of course, you'll need your own OS. But just use your old one and you're good to go. If you've got the skills, build your own PC. It's worth it.

That quad core is a terrible choice with a E8500 3.16ghz 40$ away, and so it the 8800GT when you can get a 4850 for 150$ with rebate on newegg.

potenquatro3695d ago

i'm preatty sure i can build one with a quad core, more powerful ATI instead of Nvidia maybe even a 700 psu and no keyboard and mouse for about the same price. maybe having to get the OS for free,maybe but still about the same price.

Pain3695d ago

need any more proof?

Shroomy3695d ago

I actually need "proof" instead of your dumb opinion.

Shroomy3694d ago
