  3. When I was planning a new PC, I put together a PC (just on paper of course), that had an Athlon II X4 645 processor and a Radeon HD 5670, for roughly the same price. The X4 is 2 times faster than the X2, according both to logic and benchmark tests, and the 5670 has more than 3 times better result than the 6450.
    So definitely not worth it.

    @ Peter: So better to build one then? I feel ripped off buying my HPE 510F ($1000):facepalm:. I more less bought it on impulse without really getting any advice from anyone (my bad). And the terrible thing, I mostly use my laptop to play Race & RFactor.As of now i have NFS Shift2 and COD Black ops installed. Well at least my gf and our roomie use it for their personal use. It is also our TV tuner and Blu Ray player. Still doesn't justify the price though lol! But then again maybe in the future i can start running Dedicated Servers for RD?. Btw, i'm really not liking Shift 2, i got it because it was cheap. See another impulse buy! lol!
     
  6. Yes I think so. My experience is that pre-built PC-s are always more expensive! Of course I'm not saying that it is impossible to find a good one, as I've not seen it all.

    I copy the text from your link of the PC. With this PC you can't run games 1920x1080 with ultra settings.

  9. Read through this article if you are not able to spend that much on a PC. What this article is about is building the best system you can for $500. I have read this site for 15 years and they are the best on the net that I have found. If you look at Newegg once you are done with the article, you will see the price holds true.
