I'm using a laptop right now and I usually can only run things in medium settings at the most, and yesterday it shut down on me, and when it booted I got a message saying that it had over heated. So I figured it's about time I get myself a new one. I'm a poor college boy, but I've managed to scrounge up some money left over from an old student loans/scholarships/selling back books, to buy myself a new gaming rig. Here's what I'm looking at:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHz Quad Core CPU
4GB DDR3 RAM
Nvidia Geforce GT 220
It'll be around $680 after shipping. Is that a decent buy if I'm just looking to run things like WoW, Counter-Strike Source, Crysis 1/2, TF2, Rift(maybe, still on the fence about that one), and perhaps ToR and GW2 in high to max settings?
Is it at least decent to start with? I figure a 480W PSU isn't the greatest, nor is the GT 220, but I can always upgrade the two of those later I suppose. Anyone have any ideas what a good upgrade for those two would be? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
