Recommended Posts

I know everything I need to run doom3, I just dont know how much it costs. I juast want something that can run it with all of its fancy effects. it doesnt have to run at 60fps or anything. I would also like to stay under 2000$, so could you reccomend what pc I should get?

For 2000 $ you get one hell of a pc for Doom3. I paid 1600 € (1800 $) for mine and I am quite convinced it will run Doom3 fine.
Get an X800 XT or (6800 Ultra) + 1024 MB RAM and, say, an Athlon 64 3200+ (that´s almost what I got) and you will play Doom3 smoothly for < 2000 $.
You can do cheaper, of course: Radeon 9800 Pro, 512 MB and Athlon XP 3000+ and you will fly to Mars for half of the above price.

You want an all new PC that runs it full effects but want to stay under $2000 US? Hmm, gonna be hard when a big chunk of that change is going to a GT. I'd say something like this would be great for all the details

P4C 3.0 ghz (Or A64 socket 754)
Abit IC7 mobo (this is for an Intel system, for AMD I don't know what is best)
Audigy 2 ZS
6800 GT OC'd to Ultra speeds (most, like mine, can do it on stock cooling)
2x 512 mb of GOOD memory. I.E. Kingston Hyper-X or Corsair XMS (even though this is overclocking memory, it gives you piece of mind knowing you are getting rock solid memory, not some value-ram ripoff bullshit)
A real good 19 inch CRT like my NEC FP912 Diamondtron CRT (LCD's still don't hold a candle to color quality on CRT's)
5.1 surround sound speakers (Creative Gigaworks S700's are a good choice, I have them, they rule)

Good luck keeping under budget though.

Wait a while, then buy an XBox, play Doom3 on it, and spend the rest of your money on a nice vacation

Im upgrading my pc : A8V deluxe motherboard, a Amd64 3500+ and a Geforce 6800 GT wich is gonna cost me around 900 Euros wich is about the same as 900 US dollars. But u if have to buy the rest of a a complete pc it will probably cost around 1600 buks.

Sure you want to go with via for you a64 system?

The 3 nvidia (nforce 3) 939 socket versions out all pretty much kicked the asses of the via solutions.

I never would have bought MSI before but clearly they have one of the better 939 boards out right now.

Why don't you look on fucking google if you know what you need?
