Thanks for your input. I did hear they were good. Anyone else?

Ive got to get a new computer, and I'm thinking I may try to build one. this one just isnt cutting it for me for this game. Here's the list of parts I plan to use:

:Antec NEO ECO 520W Power Supply

ASUS P8H61-M LGA 1155 Micro-ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1Ghz Quad Core Processor
or
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3.2GHz Quad Core Processor

: G Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333 RAM

Seagate Pipeline 500GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive

AMD Radeon HD 6750
or
Nvidia GeForce GTS 450

How well do you all think this would run the game? What parts should I look to change? I've got to keep this as cheap as possible, only working minimum wage atm. I've chosen this game over having a life lol

RAM and vid cards are relatively cheap right now. I suggest to anybody upgrading to go to at least 8GB of RAM (only cost me $50) and I got my Radeon 6870 at $150 ...

I'm in Canada and I went to CanadaComputers.ca (They have stores everywhere). TigerDirect and all the other stores up here have the same pricing.

I am running those pieces with an i5 2500 CPU and have 0 issues with framerates

can't really afford to drop 600 at once, figured if i build it, i can buy a part now or later when money becomes more available. thanks though
