Here is the original article. Seems it’s pretty doable for under 10,000 PED! (That’s $1,000 US.)
Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R motherboard ($155)
With support for the latest memory and processors, it’s as future-proof as they come. Ground yourself before attaching components.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 CPU ($230)
Nobody does parallel processors better than Intel (for now). After you socket the CPU and affix the heat sink, don’t forget to plug in the fan.
Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX DDR2 memory sticks ($92)
Special heat sinks keep these sticks from flash-frying.
EVGA e-GeForce 8800GT 512MB ($240)
Per dollar, one of the fastest videocards ever made. Accept no substitutes.
Ultra X2 550W PSU ($85)
This power supply’s modular cables let you feed only what you need (like that smokin’ graphics card).
You can use the case, drives and peripherals that you already have, and with these upgrades you should be able to run Crysis (and the new Entropia coming soon) like a champ! Someone who knows more about computers than I do, please comment!
