    Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck my computer.

    It's a piece of shit, old ass, Compaq that needs to be Office Spaced.

    I either want to buy a PC or build it myself. ASAP. I have a friend that does it so that is not the issue.

    Can someone please help me regarding minimum requirements?

    For example, what is the lowest specs? Type of Motherboard? Type of Graphics card? Processor?

    I was about to post that. Fuck you.

    EDIT: If you are looking for a desktop/laptop from a company that you can customized use http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/

    But if you want to build your own hands-on. Skiptron can help you.

    The two posts above this one are garbage. Do not listen to them.

    Do you want bang for the buck or do you not care about cost? I would definitely suggest going with building your own, as it is almost always cheaper and you have full customization. I refuse to buy a pre-made computer anymore.

    Only for counter strike source? And if you are just having fps problems because it drops fucking low, go get a fps config.

    Your Processor is clocked at a good speed for gaming but yeah your RAM and your Video Card are holding you back :frown:

    intel i5 2300 quad core proc (Sandybridge), 8gb 1333 ram, amd 6850 1gb video card, 750w 80+ bronze single rail psu, biostar h61 motherboard, samsung dvd?, hec mid tower case on special, and acer 20 inch led backlit 1600x900 monitor

    How's that?

    That should be able to handle most that you throw at it. You may want to shop around for a AMD 2GB video card, 6950 perhaps, that monitor does not look bad either, but it is not 1080p, you may want to see if you can find a monitor with at least those specs and you will have a decent running whitebox. If you have a budget, let me know, PM me if you don't want it public and I will put some things together for you.
