    I finally gotten some senses and looking into building one myself after carefully observing oldkawman1's comment and the link he/she provided from I will make a separate thread about building a pc which I might need some help with.

    I used an Optiplex To level my desk once.

    We had those Optiplexes at work. They are very cramped, literally desktops. Nice design for what we used them for, but not a gaming rig.

    It is dated technology, I'm about to ship, roughly, 20 of those systems off to the recyclers for recycling (Work)
    But I plan on keeping one or two of them around as they do serve some purpose.
    Gaming isn't one of them. I'm sure you can get UT3 to run on systems like that but honestly, it's not worth your time.
    If you're really that hard up to play some UT3, send me a PM and I will get your shipping info and send you a motherboard(Asus), CPU(Intel), and memory(Kingston valueram) free of charge, as I said, I'm about to "toss" this stuff out anyways.
    It won't get any better then a core 2 duo. but it's on the same level as what you're shopping for.
    It'll give you a little more time to save money and do as Rumple suggested, grab something worth your time.
    I hear they're making a new UT shhhh, top secret

    You'd be better off saving your money & buying something worth having. You can get a decent AMD 6 or 8 core processor for around $150 to $200 & a decent motherboard for half of that. I wouldn't bother with that ancient POS. Seriously. Buy a piece at a time & build something worth having.

    I built my own and saved about$1000,00.
    But of course it can get expensive if you buy top of the line equipment

    It should run with that cpu

    If it can run on my 3 year old low end laptop computer, (which I recorded content on top of that), I'm sure it can run on anything decent on the internet now.

    I would stay away from any Dell or HP desktop. These are cheaply made with **** components. They typically have 1-2 Gb ram and onboard graphics. Only propriatary Dell motherboards will fit the case. It's a throw away machine.

    Ebay would be a better place to buy used computers and components. Make sure you get one with a standard ATX case and power supply so you can install any ATX, mini-ATX, of micro-ATX mobo in it.

    When your on a budget, your best off if you build your own PC. Pic the right case and power supply so you can re-use them the next time. Then it's just the cpu, mobo, ram, and graphics card that you swap out when you upgrade. Many folks upgrade every couple years and sell the old components to help offset the cost of the new.,2601.html

    Hmm. What exactly is your budget to spend? 1000$ ? 5004 ?

    What parts do you need?

    Can you use any old parts?

    It was a typo error on my part, the system has Windows 7 Professional 64 on it. If you'd like to know, I do have a limited budget. I wish I could afford a Cyberpower PC lol
