Hey. I am planning to buy a new PC and this is the config I have more or less decided on.
Intel Core2Duo E6300 @ 1.86 Ghz.
1 GB ( 512 MB x 2 ) 677 Mhz DDR2 RAM
Gigabyte 965P DS3 mobo.
XFX 8600GT 256MB.
120 GB Seagate SATA HDD.
I am going to OC the E6300 to atleast 2.7 Ghz. That should according to most reviews make it equal to an e6600 . That is why i chose the DS3. It has solid state capacitators and has an awesome BIOS.
Now, a few questions ,
1) I'm getting the feeling that my RAM is going to cause one helluva bottleneck. Should i increase it to 2 gigs or is it fine?
2) Will this config allow me to play almost all new games at close to max. settings at 1280x1024 at 60+fps?
3) And lastly, is it balanced? is something holding it back or is something more than i need.
