Unrealistic but happy

Yeah, a guy on on youtube did bench testing on CPUS using the same graphics card. He found a slight difference between a $50 Dual Core and a $1K 6 core 6 threads sort of thing happening there. Slight only. Single core fails. Stick to a $100 quad core at least.AnthrSolidSnake said:2. Graphics card is very important. Don't misunderstand, a good CPU is important too, especially for games that use the CPU more, but overall, a graphics card is something you DO NOT want to go cheap on. That i7 or AMD 8350 can only go so far on its own.
The game is using the GPU hardware and to game, that is what you need.
Now, how much? $600ish for the GTX 780ti would be about the fastest single card you could get right now, but my boy's rig has a $50ish HD 5670 (or is it 5760? I don't recall). Regardless, it can play most games at least as well as a gen 7 console, which should be fine for just about everyone.
GAMES: If you're looking for things that play best on games, RPGS, RTS and Strategy games.
Great things like Batman Arkham City were really meant to be played with a controller. So, for $10 I bought an Xbox receiver that plugs into the PC. Works with a standard Xbox 360 controller. Games tend to look better on PC with a good card than on consoles and cost a lot less.
