why hasn't anybody commented on it. 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) http://www.newegg.com/Produ... AMD Phenom X4 9550 Agena - $140 http://www.newegg.com/Produ... GIGABYTE GA-MA770-DS3 AM2+/AM2 ATX - $80 http://www.newegg.com/Produ... Xion Mid-ATX Case w/ Side Window - $40 http://www.newegg.com/Produ... Western-Digital 250GB HDD 16MB SATA2 - $60 http://www.newegg.com/Produ... LiteOn 20x DVD +/- RW SATA 2MB w/ Lightscribe - $26 http://www.newegg.com/Produ... Rosewill 550W RP550 ATX12V - $55 http://www.newegg.com/Produ... A-DATA 4GB(2x 2GB) DDR2-800 5-5-5-18 - $70 http://www.newegg.com/Produ... 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.
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.
need any more proof?
I actually need "proof" instead of your dumb opinion.
"Fine hear it is. Your a F**king Moron if u buy PC hardware every few months or years. there good enough? go update your PC idiot. il use a Console and NOT upgrade like i always have and never need to do. just F**k off with your if u think PC's are the Gamers chioce retard. Only Fat moroic losers waste Money On Game PC's. Go use that Money on a Girl. $700 on a PC that will be a tard in 3 months is a F**king joke like you IQ kid." like you IQ kid HAHAHA Talk about pathetic, I'm surprised you know what girls are you spend so much time on about your pathetic little console, sad lifeless git or what.
My next build would blow that PC right out of the water. The only thing it's got going for it is the graphics cards, other then that you could get the 9800GTX+ which is out now and has GDDR3 and if your into the newer Nvidia models then kudos to you.
my next build will blow anything out of the water althouigh why im having 4 gig graphics ram and 16 gig main ram is a question i have yet to answer not toe mention a gf200 series as a physx card.... bank loan ftw
4GB altogether of GPU memory? waste 16GB? 8GB is a waste I don't think you'll be running a dedicated server so that's seriously overkill, and PhysX is a useless gimmick, you'd be better off with a 4870x2, or a 5seriesx2 when that rolls around.
the card with the most ram is the 4870x2 with 2gb of ram, you can't get 4gb video ram. And 16gb of ram is totally useless, the MOST you should ever go with in this day and age is 4gb.
do u know what u can do with 16GB's of ram , Can u say RAM DRIVE
You could cache 3 entire games with that much RAM. Pointless.
My whole philosphy is , i always reuse pieces from my old pc anyway , so to me an upgrade is simply a NEW MOBO and CPU (ram if the ram is a different kind) and Graphics card , everything else gets reused from the old machine.
yes, but can a $700 laptop play it?
Should be available in all retail stores.
