Legion's Low-end Intel PC Buying Guide

Posted on Tuesday, Jul 03 2007 @ 08:45 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Today we piece together a $900 US gaming system featuring a 19” Acer LCD and a highly overclockable processor/motherboard combination. The performance results are impressive and through overclocking we have been able to boost performance by more than 20%. With plenty of storage space, memory and a GeForce 7900 GS (256MB) graphics card, our low-end system offers gamers a serious bang for their buck!
With the only weakness being the graphics card, it makes sense to go with the stronger Core 2 Duo E4400 processor as the GeForce 7900 GS can easily be upgraded in the future without having to replace any other components. This seems to be the safest bet really and in the meantime you can still enjoy excellent performance out of the 7900 GS in the majority of today’s games. Furthermore, with the aid of some overclocking we were able to achieve between a 20% and 60% performance gain in the four games that were tested.
