Well , this pc is pretty much on it's way out me thinks , I know it will probably die when summer hits , atm my budget is pretty low , when i get ahead again ill be building a smick system but for now just want something that keeps up.

Was looking at this as it's pretty cheap , i have pretty much no knowledge of amd or ati though so... is the setup good enough for the high end games?

http://www.itestate.com.au/pages/product/pdt_product_detail.faces?BeanName=productDetailAction&pcode=03905

my budget is pretty much $8-900 and i'll need windows 7 aswell , so if theres anymore options feel free to share Orange_Colorz_PDT_15

I don't need anything else but the tower , and i cbf building atm , i'll be building my next one.

Not sure about that gfx card on the first one though dude and even that second one, a grand is a fair bit to spend on just a fill in pc??

I personally think you should reconsider this and build something in your budget that you can upgrade over time.
