"... at ALL times, no matter whats going on"?

Uhhhhh... No. :D

If you were defragging the hard drive while scanning with MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware and Windows Security Essentials, all while downloading the Library of Congress in the background, you'd probably get chapped just trying to play Solitare. :D

Question: 25fps at what res and quality? Trying run at 'Max' on a 30" monitor [2560x1600] could get expensive.

Gday Chris.

Game play at 25fpp from the 2100 is doubtful and at that speed is not very enjoyable. You need to aim for 30 +.

The 2500K is what I recommend giving you plenty of headroom not to bottle most GFX cards for future upgrade. > http://www.newegg.co...5-072-_-Product
All indication are that providing you have a good case airflow, you will not need the after market cooler.

RAM. Consider this CLS8 memory, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145348 If you are installing a 32bit OS 4GB IS OK. if 64bit you could add 4GB later or now go for 8GB, 2 x 4GB sticks.

Some other video cards to consider, > http://www.tomshardw...n&prod[4854]=on

Other selections are very good.

Consider a a 2nd smaller HDD for the OS.
