Here’s what I have so far:
I’m basically looking for mobo, processor, RAM, and power supply. I currently have a GT 610 video card which, while not the best, will do the job until I can save another couple hundred for a much better card. The rest of my current setup is a Core 2 Duo E5300 2.6GHz, ASUS P5G41-M mobo, 4GB PC-3200 DDR2, the aforementioned video card, Toshiba P300 1TB HD, and a 250w power supply.
My main goal would be to play newer Steam games (right now my newest is Brutal Legend and BioShock Infinite that I have to play at 720p and settings on medium or lower) and to get my emulators for the later systems running smoothly. Would this do the job? Obviously a better video card down the line is also in order. Thanks for any feedback!
