I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Some suggestions:
If you are not planning on overclocking the CPU, then you can drop off the Arctic Shield 5 Thermal Compound (which you have listed twice by the way). Thermal compound comes with most CPU's, and it works just fine as long as you are not overclocking too much.
You will need to up the RAM to 8GB (4GB is just meeting the minimum requirements on most newer games). Having 8GB of ram will give you that "Buffer" zone to be able to play all the games for at least a couple years.
You only put in a 120GB SSD drive. You will have that filled with the Operating System and maybe a couple games and not have enough room for anything else. I would suggest for now, dumping the SSD drive and getting at least a 500GB to 1TB 7200rpm hard drive.
Should also get a DVD/Bluray drive.
You will also have to factor in the cost of an Operating System.

Those are my few suggestions, I know other people will be adding in theirs too. Hope this helps you out some.

by Ritwik7~ thx

should i go with this build or does ne one recommend ne thing else?

also i currently have a sparkle GeForce 9400GT PCI. i went to micro center and the dude told me thats like the best card i can buy for PCI (i dont have PCI Express on my current computer). i was wondering how well that will run a game like flyff then maybe higher end games later. if it runs well then i will probably end up not getting a graphics card

ne help is appreciated


A:Cheap gaming PC build

I like Rit's build a lot, I would offer this alternative only because the X4 620 Propus does better in gaming and is $99. also games are now multi threaded and making use of more than two cores, and that obviously will be the standard in the future. also when you use the machine for productivity, the additional cores will be of benifit. Here is a benchmark report.
the video card is the same (4670) but it has a lifetime warranty.

The PC I have a the moment is 6-7 years old and I am looking to get something more up-to-date pretty soon. I have a budget of around 500 and I need something that is going to play modern games, is this possible?

I don't build PCs so I'm looking to get something ready-made. I have seen some offers on Ebay and Amazon but I'm not entirely sure what I should be going for.

A:Cheap Gaming rig

Hello Fastboy42,
I think you left a zero off the amount you want to spend.
A cheap gaming rig for 100$, unless PC parts are very cheap in NZ, then the answer is no.
Thats not to say you cant build a PC for 100$, it just wont be any good for gaming.
As for the case, How much is it, and does it come with a power supply ?.

A:Best cheap gaming PC

Your budget is sufficient for what you want. If you have any experience with upgrading a computer, you won't find building it to be that hard. You just gotta get the right parts, one toy have them, they really only plug in one way.
Many here can help you pick out parts that well work together. I'm tied up, so cannot assemble a parts list right now, but am sure somebody will post one before too long. I'd go a nice core i5, 8gb of ram, SSD for OS and games, standard mechanical hard drive for storage, an ati our Nvidia card (whichever you prefer), a solid case (antec, corsair, haf, nzxt), and a power supply around 650watts (corsair, seasonic, pc power and cooling).

A:Cheap PC Build.

First thing that jumps out at me is the power supply. It is not a very high quality unit, and may be a bit under powered. You can save money elsewhere but going cheap on the power supply when using other mostly higher end components is asking for problems.. Here is a good one Also this case is a bit over $50 but is a great case for building a gaming rig in . Of course you either already have an OS to install or you will need to buy one. Then you will have to add Optical Drive(s)

If you want to buy the components and build the PC yourself, which is normaly cheaper but harder, the cheapest place to buy good components is Ebuyer:

If you want to have your PC built for you, Cyberpower is the best choice:

Well the laptop is faster than the desktop ones cause it has a dual-core cpu, and a faster ram speed, but laptops are mostly not really good for gaming, and it depends which game your going to run.

A:Building a cheap AMD gaming rig need help with some parts

The Ultra is not dependable over time... It has wide swings in output under stress.
Look at the EVGA and MSI boards, and Zalman cooler for dependable quality parts at low cost.

Need not be a "gaming rig". She will only be using for internet and some business programs.
She already has a case, HDD(IDE) and DVD burner(IDE).

Below are links to what I was considering...

I am stuck on the PSU...need one for $50.00 or less as her old one won't support new hardware.

Please keep in mind her current rig is a P 2 400

Can someone take a look and tell me if this build is OK.

Intel Celeron G1620
MSI H61M-P20 (G3)
Could you suggest also some memory and a video card although I already have a GeForce 8600GS, will that card be enough?

Minecraft does not need much but it does need a decent CPU (At least a mediocre one) to do a decent FPS on most settings. In my experience changing the settings does not help as much until you get really low on the game (mostly its draw distance that helps) so I would suggest a slightly higher cpu and a low GPU like an R7 250 or and HD 7750.

Try something like this, Im keeping it cheap but you will appreciate minecraft more with a slightly better processor in the end.

Pentium Dual Core 3.0ghz


Corsair 4gb (2x2gb kit) 1600

PowerColor R7 250

XFX 450Watt 80+ Bronze

You can go lower on the GPU if you wish and the PSU selection on that site did not leave me much room but you can go lower. Otherwise the rest is a decent value budget minecraft build which could get a good playable game experience for anyone needing an inexpensive machine.

Of course all choices will be yours. I have never heard of a $50.00 gaming motherboard. The first tool you will need is knowledge. Some web sites that can help. These sites will list many motherboards and the information you need to choose one. Many of the subject motherboards are costly. Your not their to choose between a $200.00 or a $300.00 motherboard but to gather knowledge so you can choose between a $50.00 or $75.00 motherboard. Motherboard selection takes a lot of homework on your part. It took me more time to choose a motherboard than all the other parts in my computer put together.

Hi there. I'm looking for a very good gaming PC that I will be able to run big games at decent quality and framerate. It'd also be nice to have a computer that can record these games without lag. I also would want a computer that would be performing well for at least 2 years.

Now after researching it was pretty obvious to me that the best way to go was build a computer. So could you guys tell me which parts I should use? Here is what I'm looking for:

- Great for gaming
- Will be able to let me record whilst playing
- I have no budget, but don't go over $2500

Hi, I am looking to build a good gaming pc. Now here are the parts i have currently selected. please can you tell me if the would all go together or not and make any suggestions if possible. - motherboard - processor - psu - case - RAM - ram cooler

please any suggestions must be made on sites from which i can order in GB rather than the US, thank you.

A:Gaming PC build help

I don't think that you have any need for 6GB RAM as the Phenom II X4 955 does not have a triple channel memory controller. It would have been useful only with an i7 build.

A RAM cooler is also useless unless you're looking for extreme overclocks.

For the motherboard you'll be better off buying the Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P. You may also look into the MSI GD 70.

The 955BE is a brilliant overclocker. You should look into getting a good aftermarket CPU cooler.

For PSU, I would suggest the Corsair 650TX unless you absolutely require a modular one. The case could have been better. However, that's a question of personal tastes.

What GPU are you purchasing for this system?

Is it possible to build a $300 gaming build that can run games like TF2, WoW, SCII, Guild Wars 2 etc, and slightly older games on 15'' monitor?

I have Win xp, optical drive and hard drive already. Thanks in advance.

A:$300 gaming build??

A 15" monitor? If the monitor is that old, the optical drive and hard drive probably are too which means they're IDE drives. New motherboards use SATA ports. You probably also can't find Windows XP chipset drivers for new boards and graphics cards.

The i7 is a good choice and I personally think it is the best way to go. As for motherboard, I'd stick to ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, or possibly ASRock.

As long as you can manage the heat issues that will arise from installing two GPU's.

I'm assuming you know SSD and HDD are two different drives. You would want the SSD for a OS drive and the HDD for a storage drive.

8GB would be plenty for most cases. 16GB would probably be all you need. It's my opinion that 32GB would be massive over-kill for the general population.

If you are planning on over-clocking and using two GPU's, water cooling is a safer way to go. You would need to speak with someone else though, as I have no experience with water cooling.

I would say you are ready for your own build experience. Even if you make a mistake, you will still be happy after you have completed your objective. And after it is all said and done, you will never need someone else to build your PC's again.

I am planning on building a gaming PC with a budget of around $900 Australian dollars and this is the list of components I have come up with.

Case: $52.50

Xigmatek Asgard II
Power supply unit: $85

OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply

I Have done quite a bit of research on these components but would like to clarify a few questions.
Are all of these components completely compatible with each other?
Will all of the components fit into the case?
Am I getting the best price and value for all of the components?
Do you have any suggestions to change a component?

Thanks, James

Okay, I really want to build a gaming PC.
So, I basically want to build a gaming computer for the experience of putting one together.
I'd rather have intel or AMD, whichever is fine.
My budget is anything, but $650-700 MAX.
Now, I know 650-700 is minimum for a GAMING computer (at least I think I know), but all I want to do on the computer is normal gaming. Like, not hardcore 4k thing or whatever, but just ONE monitor playing a simple game. I don't need ULTRA graphic settings on the game, low-medium but still high dps is absolutely fine. I just want to be able to play modern games smoothly.
I have an idea of some stuff I want, BUT I have NO CLUE with compatibility with these things. I don't know how to tell this stuff.
So could someone give me the parts of a good computer for a gamer such as I? I play WoW, D3, MC, L4D2, SMITE, etc.
I shoulda asked this's Cyber Monday.. I NEED TO SQUEEZE IN SOME PURCHASES!

Thanks!! Please help me out

I used the advices from :

and modified just a little bit.

I feel a bit hesitant about the motherboard because some reviews say that they come dead out of the box. However, the motherboard and CPU combo saves me a few so I chose that motherboard.

Also, do you guys think it is wise to wait til cybermonday/blackfriday to order these or do you think those really won't go on sale?

Good choices.
Depending on the price of that TX650 I'd recommend the Rosewill Capstone 550/m or Seasonic g series 550.
Also it'd be nice to find a kit of 1866 RAM, which you can probably find at a similar price if you're lucky and there's some sales.
Also depending on the price you can probably get a Samsung EVO 250gb for a little cheaper.

Hey everyone, I'm unsure which of the three HDD's below to go for. This is what my build will be:

MOBO: Asus P8P67
CPU: Inter Core i7 2600
GPU: Asus Radeon HD 6950
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600MHz
HDD: ??
PSU: Corsair HX-750W
CASE: Cooler Master HAF-922

And here are the three HDD's:
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 SATA 3Gb/s 1TB Hard Drive (NZ$88.41)
Western Digital AV-GP 1TB SATA 3 Gb/s 7200RPM 64MB Cache (NZ$103.17)
Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache, 7200 RPM (NZ$130.92)

I'm quite keen on saving a bit of cash as I am spending more than I originally planned, but will there be a noticeable performance difference by going for the WD Black?

Thanks in advance!

Ah sorry, I meant Corsair HX-650 for the PSU

Ok few questions first.
What kind of games are you looking to play?
What type of monitor and how big are you going to use?
How MANY monitors?
What kind of graphics settings are you wanting to run these games on? Max, high?

These questions will basically help us determine if your system is correct or maybe possibly overkill or whatnot.

I didn't know where else to post this, I'm new here.

I'm building a new PC for Christmas, and was wondering if anyone here would be able to tell me how it would run for games like L4D2, WoW, Borderlands, etc.

Intel Core i5

nVidia GTX 275


550 Watt PSU

Those are the 'main' factors for the PC as far as I know.

If you need the rest of the specs let me know and I can post.

Thanks much!

A:New build gaming pc. Did I do it right?

You have an awesome system, pretty much at the top, no worries there. Probably your biggest hangup at the moment is your ram, actually. Up that to 2gb and you'll be flying. You'll want two sticks of 1Gb, not 4 sticks of 512, and you should look at getting a high performance make if you really are wanting to get performance.

What make is that ram you have now? Do you know what the timings are set at?

As for your CPU, not many games are using dual core at the moment (in fact, are there any?). The single core CPUs in general are performing better gamewise with their higher clockrates. BUT, hopefully the games that start coming out now will start taking advantage of dual core technology.

I am curious about the 433Mhz memory. I thought that 400mhz was the max. Need someone with more knowledge than I have to answer that.

As for your future upgrade options, at the moment the sky is your limit. Socket 939 is still the best for AMD, and PCI-e is still the best for graphics. That board should keep you at the top of the heap for a while to come.

Finally, just a warning for you (I have the same mobo). Your chipset fan may fail on you sometime in the near future. If you hear a freakishly loud noise all of the sudden, that's what it is.

Actually, take a look at your motherboard now. Is the chipset fan mounted parallel to the motherboard? I.e., square? (as opposed to being diagonally installed - a diamond shape)? The square mounted fan is the older type, and have a high percent chance of dying. Easily replaced, just a pain in the.....

Hello I'm planning on building my PC during the winter and I was just wondering if there is any advice you guys could give me? Some dos or donts. I'm not to educated on computer parts so if you could help me decide which graphics card to get, nvidia or Radeon or any other ones.
My budget is $400-$600 so if there are any builds that are out there now that you recommend please let me know. (Ones that include mouse,monitor, and keyboard would be nice too)

And how often do computer parts come out? Would I find myself buying parts in a few months just to upgrade? I'm not looking to have 4k settings just be able to play upcoming games like the division fallout4 at pretty decent graphics and frames.
Thanks ahead of time!

A:Home Build Gaming PC

Looks good to me. All reliable, and all will work together. I might quibble over the Q8200 vs 8400, but only if the prices are decent. You are overdoing it on the Power Supply, but I am a strong believer that the power supply deserves all the quality that you put into the motherboard.
Please let us know how it all works together when finished.

I'm going to order a new computer on Friday mainly for gaming. BIG improvement from my Pentium 4.
with these components -->

Phenom II x4 955 @ 3.2ghz
4 gigs of DDR3 @ 1600mhz
Samsung 1000GB 32mb HDD
630W PSU
GeForce GT 220 512mb (I'm getting my friends old GT 9600 soon after i buy this computer. Its a little better than the GT 220. But even after that im probably going to buy a DX 11 card)
So would i be able to play almost every game on max settings? I do know that the old GPU is a bottleneck though. But otherwise? And what are your other thoughts on this build?

EDIT: Would of gone with an Intel i5 build but i dont have enough money. That build cost about 599 Euros with only the onboard HD 4290 GPU. Salvaging old GPU from current computer.

I don't know if this is the topic/forum. I was wondering if this pc build could play all of the following.

Arma 3
Arma 2
Grand theft auto V(GTA5 for when it comes out)
Grand theft auto IV
battle field 3
battle field 4
Dead island
Crysis 3
all metro city's
And a lot of games like that to medium-high-max settings.

If I posted this on the wrong forum i'm sorry.

A:New to PC gaming, is this a good build?

Those specs are solid for a Gaming PC. However, I'm positive you will save money if you just built it yourself. Also, that list doesn't include a PSU. So, you will need to pick a PSU for your build. The PSU is one of the most important parts. Thus, you always want to pick something with good build quality.

Is your budget $1275ish?

If you're open to building the machine yourself. I am sure myself or someone here could help you build a machine best for your budget.

A:Few questions regarding gaming PC build

With that budget, you can easily get an Intel based system. I think AMD is a better choice though since it leaves room for a better GPU. This is what I recommend: If you need Windows 7, I will need to downgrade some components.
