What parts would you need to make a rig worthy of the medium-high graphics/playing tier for the newer games(not newest, just the ones that have recently came out/will come out)  and how much do you think the cost would be? Thanks

You can build a $900 rig and get med-high settings for most,if not all games.

Why didn't wait to save up more cash so you could get a better mobo and 2 gigs of RAM??? How did you get that E6300 to 2.6 on a mobo like that???

im goin with the cooler master basically cuz i wanted better cooling than stock but on the cheap.  i have no need for much better as it never gets very hot in here and my cpu currently idles at close to 32 degrees celsius.  yeah i am thinking if i dont have anything i especially want next year for chrismas ill pick up a quad

Oh,i'm sure you can reach higher than 2.6,and a TT120 is a better buy.
