@vettie, if cash is an issue, you can always buy parts you need over a period of time, and depending on where in the world you are, you could probaly find a retailer that will sell good budget motherboard bundles (that will met min specs, and even excede recamended specs) you can use as a base, then slowly add other bits you need like graphics, HDD's, PSU and so on.
For example, if your in the UK, you can get a good AMD 8 core CPU mobo bundle with 8gb of ram for just under £250.
so look around and get the best deals you can, and just build over time.
Yep, thanx Fynn. I have built so many gaming rigs for peeps over the years. I have an account in good standing with Tiger (North America). One of my test bed machines just got zapped by lightning earlier this week (power supply I am thinking, but others on same surge protector (even a machine that was ON) are ok, weird.)
Just had a lot of medical expenses (unexpected) lately as well as the usual stuff. Had to get my youngest daughters car repaired (shes in college and I already paid the tuition). Thats where the extra went, lol.
I will get there. i have a system (all the parts) picked out. It will just take some time. It will happen!
