Depends really what there is in your area. I know mostly just Finnish stores etc. the best..


Just one common tip; Try to get the usual parts from compatible partners.


Personally I use AMD-ATI PC at the moment where I got an AMD Athlon X2 processor, AMD chipset and Ati Graphics card..

Some chipsets can cause issues with different manufacturer graphics cards like; If your motherboard has a AMD/ATI chipset, it might not work well together with an nVidia graphics card.. Depends on the chipset of course.


Most of time it is up to you what kind of PC you want and what type of budget you have. I usually try go with low-end budget with high and smooth performance. Current configuration I have has cost about 900 USD tops (including all upgrades past 5 months) and yet I have rather smooth FPS in Cod6, Modern Warfare2 with 2xAnti-Aliasing.


For example some parts for fairly good setup would go as follow without too much checking on price tag;

Processor; Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz

Motherboard; Asus P5QL-PRO S775

Graphics; GeForce GTX 275 896 MB, PCI-E

Harddrive; Seagate Barracuda 500GB

RAM; OCZ DDR2 4GB Kit 800MHz

-- Somewhat total cost for these is around $750 (usd) where I live, with the average costs.


Yet with the above setup you wouldnt probably have to renew the PC for quite a while even if you got Win7 for it and gamed quite some.
