Processor brand - Intel
Processor type - Pentium 4 with Hyper-Threading
Processor speed - 3.06GHz
Frontside bus speed - 533
Level 2 cache - 1MB
RAM- 512MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM
RAM expandable to: - 2GB
Hard drive size - 200GB 7200RPM Serial ATA
Total expansion slots 3 PCI, 1 PCI-Express
Available expansion slots 2 PCI, 1 PCI-Express
Network Interface Card (NIC) - Yes
Video memory - Up to 256MB (shared)
Graphics type - ATI Radeon® Xpress 200
The price would be around $500 (seems to be too good to be true), which is the maximum amount of cash I can spend on the computer itself. I would also buy about 1GB-2GB of RAM and either a "Radeon X800 256MB" or a "GeForce 6800 XTreme 256MB". I'm not sure which one of those cards I should get though.
What I want to do with this setup is play Half-Life 2, Serious Sam 2, Painkiller, Doom 3, Far Cry and basically the newest and best games out there. I would like to get at least a nice, fluid FPS (Over 60) with everything maxed out. Also I would be producing music on this system. My questions is basically, would this computer, with one of those video cards (and which one?), allow me to do all this?
Help would be greatly appreciated. :D
