Here is a quick tip if you are looking for a system requirements resource page for PC Video Games. Check out the System Requirements Lab page: This page has a database including hundreds of games to analyze against your current systems hardware and software. You must be running Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows 7. As well, you must be using either Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Chrome internet browsers.
How it works:
Once at the System Requirements Lab you will be asked to download a file that will determine you systems hardware and software. Next you are directed to choose the game you would like to analyze.

Hello everyone, and welcome to the new year 2011. I have updated the tier four and tier five of the gaming builds sections. The greatest improvements were the additions of the new Intel Sandy Bridge processors the Intel Core i5-2500, Intel Core i5-2500K, Intel Core i7-2600, and Intel Core i7-2600K. With the addition of these Sandy Bridge chips comes an array of improvements within the chipsets alone such as greater processing speed bumps from the older Intel i5 and i7′s used in previous builds, the integrated GPU (not specifically for gaming, but does makes lower end external GPU cards useless in about the $40-$60 range; this is particularly important for building new HTPC’s), and Quick Sync (good for quickly transcoding videos to portable devices). I know the previous two additions to Sandy Bridge are not specifically important to gaming, but Sandy Bridge is the best CPU on the market to date for gaming: Check out the Sandy Bridge gaming benchmarks using The Intel Core i5 2500K and Intel Core 2600K at Anandtech testing a list of 10 popular games.
The motherboard holds the crucial components of your computer system. As stated by PCreview:
“A motherboard houses the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), which is the simple software run by a computer when initially turned on. Other components attach directly to it, such as the memory, CPU (Central Processing Unit), graphics card, sound card, hard-drive, disk drives, along with various external ports and peripherals.”
