Hi, I'm looking for a PCI or PCI Express graphics card that does not use more then 425W of power, and is in the price range of $70-$90 CAD. I'm going to build a $500 gaming computer, with 8gb of RAM, Quad-Core 3.0Ghz AMD CPU, and a Biostar motherboard. Also, if you post links, please make them from www.tigerdirect.com, because that' where I'm getting the parts. (EXTRA KUDOS IF YOU RECCOMEND A FULL COMPUTER BUILD FOR $500!!!!!!1!111!!!one!!1!)

Hello and welcome to the not-so-official Custom Gaming PC Thread.

Feel free to ask questions, post your builds, ask about system requirements, etc.

Have fun!

Whenever I plug in my PSP GO to my pc, an icon appears normally on the taskbar that says "safely remove hardware." Normal, right? But I can't find any other trace of the psp on the computer! it's like the computer doesn't sense it, but it does. in the "devices and printers" section on windows 7, it shows that the psp is there, but i can't open it! (my pc has windows 7)Please help me!

Thanks guys. I'm Probably gonna go with Morrowind. BTW, Please dont post games unless you're sure that they're T rated. About 70% of the games mentioned were M rated. :P

Not being able to get M games really limits you. Maybe Mount and Blade Warband. Maybe Renegade Ops, since you have a good amount of freedom in that game.

My advice is to make friends with an older person to buy you the games you can't buy yourself.

The problem is, My parents will see the game, or me playing it. They're really strict on this sort of stuff
