Default You Don't Have To Be Rich To Be A PC Gamer

There is a common misconception that you have to take out a second mortgage on your house if you want to get a computer that will run all of the latest and greatest games. I don't know who started the rumor that you need to spend $3000 to get a gaming computer. The truth is, if you are smart about it, you can easily afford to get a high-end gaming computer. Here are a few simple rules to follow to put a gaming computer within reach. 6

Rule 1. Never buy the newest technology
Of course not, it's never complete, there always will be a problem, it's totaly overpriced and the support may be nihil.

Rule 3. Build Your Own Computer
Of course, it's fun and free, plus you can re-use stuff.

Btw. my simple XP2500+ 2035Mhz and Radeon 9600Pro @ 474/324 can run Far Cry @ 1024 4x/4x can still play all the games at reasonable settings.
