Boy I wish someone told me my only choices were the most expensive CPU + GPU or nothing.... I must have broken the rules or something.


oh, don't worry. it wasn't the only option, so you don't have to cry. i was just saying how expensive how things are now, and we can all see that things are gearing to it now. i mean, what crap can an old piece of video card can do if you want to play on a 40" LED TV? and we all know that it's going to become the standard a couple of years from now.

so stop crying, you can still keep your 20" LCD and ignore this thread. i still have mine, too. and i don't plan on upgrading anymore because of what i just said.

i'll give you a cheeseburger if i get that instead. :D


You for real?

If you have a job, money shouldn't be an issue. We have to make mistakes, or how else can we learn?!?

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

you don't have to cry.


Why would I cry about your decision? It's YOUR money. Go spend it how you like.

i was just saying how expensive how things are now

If this were the average, then yeah, you would have a point. Those are the extreme cases for the hardcore enthusiasts. There have always been high dollar video cards and high dollar cpu's that are in NO WAY REQUIRED to play games decently. This isn't a new trend, though if you haven't been paying attention it might seem that way.

we can all see that things are gearing to it now.


I don't see that at all. There are still games you can play just fine on a video card and CPU that cost half of the example you picked.

what crap can an old piece of video card can do if you want to play on a 40" LED TV? and we all know that it's going to become the standard a couple of years from now.


Again, I don't see that at all... What I DO see is someone trying extra hard to convince themselves of something. You didn't really need to come to this board and ask for our permission you know. Do what you want.

so stop crying, you can still keep your 20" LCD and ignore this thread. i still have mine, too. and i don't plan on upgrading anymore because of what i just said.


Good for you? /blogfaqs?

Next time I plan on buying something, I'll let you know... ok? Just so you'll be aware of my plans.

My mountain bike cost more than a Titan... :/

I guess I just have expensive standards. I couldn't see myself opting for a car that cost $1,000 and relying on it to be a daily driver. but then again, I'm a car enthusiast.
