Hello there. I am trying to find the best computer to run SC2 and a few other games. I have narrowed my choices between these two desktops. Which one is better?
CybertronPC: Fortress IV
Microtel Computer: TI908

They are almost even
But I would go with the Microtel Computer® TI9081
Reason being Nvidia cards seem to perform better than AMD due to better driver support.
And also The core i7 seems like a far better bet since my Phenom II X2 is trash and I will never again buy AMD
The radeon 7850 however is better than the GTX 550 but I suspect the i7 will make up for the loss and SC2 seems to be a CPU intensive game last I read about it.
There was significant difference going from a core i3 to a core i7
And that AMD CPU is worse than a core i3
Hope that helps. I am a noob at SC2 though, and doubt I will ever be good at RTS.
Baw. It seems that my budget has been lowered by a lot. Perhaps this computer could run SC2 pretty good?
I don't know if I can afford your computer at the moment; I'm broke. :(

The PC is not available, and for $800, you can build a MUCH better system. Why not give this guide a read:
