I need some suggestions on a basic computer build which would be sufficient in a start up venture of mine and my friend. It needs to be able to play modern games like Call of Duty Black Ops 2 without lag, be able to capture video and audio from gameplay in said games, and of course be sub $600. No need for monitor. OEM parts ok I am able to build computers. Or even just a suggestion on specs on a computer that can do this would be sufficent. And if possible be upgradeable.

Here's my suggestion:

After rebate it's $600 + whatever shipping you choose.  Upgradable to a "K series" processor and whatever else.  Toss in either whatever HDD you have now or add a larger one for a few more $$$ (since most people either have a strong preference or old drives laying around I didn't want to limit your options).

I lost track of computer technology and prices about 2 years after XP came out. so many more choices than there used to be. Ive spent the last two hours scaning pricewatch.com and goin through parts to come up with a $577 computer myself. AMD and Nvidia based. Shoulda mentioned those preferences but ya either way works! lol

basically my build consists of:

AMD Phenom II x4 955

1x8GB though i prefer ur idea on 2x4GB if dual channel tech is still used

Asus M4N68T-M v2 Motherboard

Nvidia GTX of some sort but ur videocard seems better for cheaper.

Chiefmax 650 Watt PSU of some sort

Chiefmax Midtower ATX case

a cheap $29 HD to get started with till i can get some more money together

Windows 7 OS

 

Price: $577 estimated with $10 range of error on estimate.

 

Am i correct that this can be put together?

The resolution would be 1920X1080 if you are talking about 1080p display.

@Waco: good & totally balanced config. :)
