How much are you willing to spend? 8800GT prob won't run bad company or bf3. I got a nvidia geforce gt240 brand new for $90

I have maby $30 at my disposal, i thought that $25 was a good deal, seeing as how i have seen bfbc2 run on it, and i wanna play portal 2 and mostly valve games. The only two issues i have right now, are the power supplie and the size of that damn card.

That is a good card and certainly worth $25. It will definitely run BC2 (as you said you saw) and I would say depending on your processor might even run BF3 on lowest settings (to be seen) so I say go for it.

Well, i was gonna get it on Kijiji, but the email we used to contact the seller was just screwed by a virus, and the same virus, just made it impossible to turn the computer on for more than 3 seconds. FFS

Edit: It was 10 : 1 Because my sister was downloading random shit, music, midget porn, the like.

After trying to upgrade our shitastic home computer, i did the noble thing... and gave up, but now that its summer, and i can get a summer job, i can also get a computer. So i want some help deciding what i can build, and for how much, i was thinking maby a $700-900 DIY build from new egg, then expanding as needed. the most im willing to shell out is $1,500. That is including monitor and other things i need, IE, an OS.

Edit: i was thinking of starting from here: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.667371

This looks like a great start. I've built many a gaming PC and these are good components. Another 560ti in SLI in the future would be a nice upgrade to BF3 with eye candy maxed out. There are also good deals on monitors. Try to stay with 1920x1080 with that card to get great frame rates. Good luck with your build -- NewEgg is great to deal with.
