I wrote a topic 2 days ago where I asked if I should upgrade my PC or buy a console. My PC had a geforce 8800GT, 2 GB of RAM and a celeron CPU (single core). You guys told me not to upgrade it with only 250 euros because it wont be enough and it will become obsolete soon. And that I would also need a new motherboard since this is old ( it's from 2006!!).
Well, I got a little more money and I bought and installed the new components today. The PC is still far from being top of the line, but I wanted your opinion on this new setup.
Unfortunately I had to keep the motherboard which means that when I'll upgrade again I'm gonna have to buy a new one and new RAM too. So now I have inside a GTX 560, 4GB of RAM (DDR2) and a Intel Core2Quad Q6600 @ 2.4 Ghz ( I wanted to buy a Q9900 but it required higher FSB).
I haven't tried any games yet, but I am curios how Deus EX Human Revolution, Orcs Must Die! 2 and GTA IV will work since they ran at 20 fps or lower on my old setup. Dead Space and Mass Effect games ran fine tho).
So what do you think of it? Will it run all the games this gen in at least 720p and decent graphics?
