    Temporary Gaming Rig

    Games I will want to play -

    Unreal Tournament 2004

    City of Villains

    Heres the specs, I will be using this for just a month for whatever reason, but I want to be able to play these two games properly for the one month. Since I will be using the PC only for a month, I want the cheapest I can get.

    Here We go

    GFX Card - Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro 128 mb. (I already have this from my old pc. It doesnt work so great anymore, with frequent overheating and artifacts. If I can replace this for under 50 bucks please do recommend)

    1 Gig ram (already have, DDR 667)

    Hard Drive - Already have

    Mouse - Already have Logitech MX518

    Case w/PSU - . Is 350w enough?

    Monitor - ( I can get CRT cheaper but shipping will probably be more due to its weight)

    DVD -

    Keyboard -

    Headset -

    VGA Fan -

    Mobo - (on combo with) Processor -

    Am I missing anything? Will this rig suffice for the said games on at least near maximal settings? anything that is overkill that I can buy cheaper stuff and still get the performance out of these two games?

    This is the only forum with techies that I know, and it IS UT04 related, so I thought id ask for opinions here.


    That should be able to run vanilla UT2004 easy on maximum settings.

      vanilla? Do i need a sound card?


        nope, the mobo you got has a soundcard already

        why you buying a vga cooler, most stock ones are fine (and are a pain to remove) and replacing with a "universal fit" might preform worse.


          because the video card is old and overheats frequently; I was thinking a new VGA cooler might help.

          is that processor really any good? 30 bucks for a processor....
