    About the games, maybe Half Life 2 + episodes? Also Medieval: Total War and its expansion as well as Race Driver Grid.

    The processor will certainly be your downfall, quad core AMDs are very slow, a mid-high end dual core would be around as fast

    Race driver grid isnt that good :) i lost interest preatty quickly. Go for Oblivion as well

    how comes the dual core amd cpus are better performers than the quads? i was on a budget hence my choice of phenomx4 instead of intel quads

    Dont really know, just know they are slower and perform worse in various tests, some tests i guess they would perform well in but overall they are slower, how much are the 9850s anyway? an Intel Q6600 is a very decent price, however you computer you would want something a little more powerful.

    mine cost me 120.done a bit of looking up and wish i had gone for one of the intel core 2 quads,think it the q6600,been called the greatest cpu ever made, it also 120ish and although 2.4ghz versus my phenom 2.5ghz its apparently great for OC'ing oh well i can always oc my phenom up a few hundred mhz to give it a boost and if worst come to worst ill grab a intel mobo and cpu to match and pop that in instead.thanks for the input though.much appreciated
