Hello, I have been posting here for a couple of weeks and I feel that this is a well educated community that can help me out with this decision and that is why I am posting this here. I realize that this is a Mac related forum, but this actually has to do with my Mac in the sense that I am looking for an alternative to it that allows me to do the things that I would prefer to leave to a computer with better speculations. "Buying Tips and Advice" was the most sensible sub-forum that I found in which I could post this, so if I can receive any help or information, I would greatly appreciate it. I use my Mac (2010 13'' MacBook Pro) for media purposes. Although I have gamed on it before with great results, (consistent 67 fps in World of Warcraft with custom settings using the Mac OS X client) I certainly would not want to run other, more intensive games on it via Boot Camp. I just feel like the integrated graphics can't handle too much, and while somewhat recent games may be playable, I am the kind of guy that doesn't really like to go under about 60 fps, which is a number that I have just assigned to my brain in reference to "smooth game play," although I am sure that number is different for everyone. With this being said, I need a Windows based gaming PC and I have been looking at iBUYPOWER because it seems very affordable. Here are the specs that I am considering: AMD Athlon II X4 640 Quad-Core CPU 8 GB DDR3-1600 Memory Module AMD Radeon HD 6570 - 1GB 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA III HDD The total cost is $593 which comes with a mouse, keyboard, and 3 year warranty. This does not include tax or shipping costs. I will most likely have to get a Windows 7 disc from them, so with that it is $697. I mainly want to play older games such as CoD4 and the like but I still want the ability to play current games, although not on ultra settings or anything. I am not too much of a graphics snob, as long as the game play is smooth then I am happy. What do you think of these specs? Furthermore, I realize that specs are not everything, so if anyone can provide specific information or share experiences with iBUYPOWER and their builds, then that would be very helpful. Also, a couple questions. Do you think liquid cooling would be necessary to maintain this computer? I can downgrade to a standard heatsink to save $10 or so and I might as well if I can. The video card I have selected requires at least a 500 watt power supply. Would it be ideal to bump that up to about a 700 watt for safe measures? It is only a few more dollars to upgrade. I am sorry for the length of the post but I hope that at least someone can help me. This is quite overwhelming when you want to get the specs just right for your usage and you are on kind of a tight budget. Thank you.
