My Gaming Rig

The rig is the basis of PC gaming, which needs to be upgraded constantly. In this post, I'll be talking about my rig and it's future upgrades.

At the moment I have:

  • AMD Athlon 64 X2 +5600 (slightly overclocked)
  • Ati Radeon HD 4850 (slightly overclocked aswell)
  • 4GB RAM
So as you can see, my rig aint the newest one but it should be able to handle any modern game. Except that bullshit Black Ops, which requires so much from your CPU that it's becoming ridiculous. I can't even believe how badly the game was ported from the consoles.

I was considering to update my CPU into AMD Athlon II X4 640, which should allow me to run Black Ops easily. But then again, that CPU get outdated soon as it's already pretty old.

Please give your thoughts about the upgrade. Is it worth it?

  1. ill give it some thought for you and get back to you, have you thought about a blog to vote on?

  2. You mean like a voting system?

  3. You're probably being bottlenecked by you GPU to be honest - I assume you probably have a 512MB hd4850? If you're playing on a resolution bigger than 1440x900, you'll see a benefit from the GPU being upgraded. Just make sure you have enough wattage to handle it.

  4. @Crose: It's just that my GPU passes minimum system requirements for all games atm. But for example my CPU doesn't fit in the Black Ops mimimal system req.

  5. I think we all have toasters, fabio -_-

    Bet you don't have a smoothie maker :D

  6. Wow that looks like a good rig for gaming. Though I wouldn't know too much about it.
