I have been reading posts on here for about 50hrs and have concluded that I'm confused. I have a 1st gen phenom 9600 @ 2.3 with the tlb bug and 2g of ddr2 1000 on a 40usd micro board with a gtx260 core 216 and a 24" screen. Now I can max @ 1920x1200 all my titles from bfbc2 to black ops. however when anyone asks for advice on a build they get nothing but- you need 2 580's and intel's top processor when in reality they need much less. My question is are we here to give factual advice or brag about the size of our johnsons? Cause the facts are that a card that costs 100usd will get you maxed out @ 1920x1200 so..... not everyone has endless cash to spend on their rig and we as their guides should show them that a good gaming experience is available for them too instead of making them feel like it's a waste of time on their budget.
