I have another computer in my house, and I want....DUN DUN DUN...2 Gaming rigs.



Now, this computer I use for all my homework (who does that stuff anymore?) But, after homework, I wanna be able to play games, incase the new computer's taken up.


Now, I plan on getting TF2, so I want to make sure my computer can handle it, but I'm unsure of what my motherboard can handle, and I don't know how to check what it can. Also, I don't know what I need to get. (Power Supply? Motherboard?)


Requirments for TF2:

Pentium 4 processor (3.0GHz, or better), 1GB RAM, DirectX

i would go for sapphire cuz there are no cons and i think you should get a good cooling system but it depends is the comp a laptop or desktop?

P.S. i think the sapphire one has great features nothing too great and nothing too shitty

Notice
: if you get something too great you might over do it like i did to mine and if you get something too shitty it might be a piece of shit

I hope it stays in budget, that way, I can consider my dad to let me spend my money this way.



He'll probably say no, though.

Make sure you get a directx 10 supported graphics card. If you don't your gonna have to replace it anyway sooner or later. . I got an NVidia 8500 GT at best buy for about 85 bucks, so you might wanna start there. Not sure if it is at your's though.
