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.)

Can I just clarify that that's an AMD 7650K APU, with 8GB RAM?

Hello I will soon be purchasing a new PC and could use some advice regarding a few options that I don t on Advice PC specs a budget Solved: for Need understand My basic criteria a I want to be able to play World of Warcraft WotLK with - add ons and - perhaps - Firefox open with minimal lag issues Rich graphics and sound Solved: Need Advice on specs for a budget PC would be nice but I m much more concerned with quick response time b I am on a pretty tight budget and would like to spend less than The Dell online store allows me to build an Inspiron beginning at I ve gone through several configurations that have landed me at around I d love to come in under that mark if you think that most of the available upgrades are superfluous but I don t have the knowledge to weigh one upgrade option against another Examples The quot free quot processor with this system is an Intel Celeron At GHz this puts me well above the required GHz for the game Still I suspect that this is one category where an upgrade would be worth the investment since correct me if I m wrong memory and a graphics card are easier to upgrade than a processor should I want to improve this system a year from now But I don t understand the choices quot Dual-core quot processors E and E for MB L and GHz for respectively Or quot Core Duo quot and quot Core Quad quot for MB MB and respectively I did a bit of research through Google and was able to find some info on how these processors stack up against one another What i was not able to discern is how significant a difference the upgrades would make for the sort of demands that WoW places on a system I can upgrade from G RAM to G for and to G for another G should be enough to run WoW and a few add-ons but if G would make the system more lag-proof then it s worth an extra But how does for example a quot Quad quot processor stack up against a doubling of RAM for my situation All I actually understand is that both should make the computer go faster but I d like to make a more informed decision between the two I don t foresee needing more than the quot free quot G hard drive or something better than the basic X DVD -RW drive that come with the sytem so that s easy The pre-upgrade quot Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator quot is from what I understand from one website anyway no good it doesn t have its own memory so it leeches off the system Will a game like WoW benefit from a Raedon card rather than the MB version If so seems like a negligible difference If not no need to waste money putting high octane fuel in an old used car Any advice input is very much appreciated Thanks for reading And apologies if this was not the proper place for this thread nbsp

A:Building a Gaming Computer Gaming Low budget. Help.

The only thing that's missing is the power supply (the "PSU"), but we should wait until you select a CPU and video card - especially the video card. The PSU is an investment, so we have to make sure it's a good one.



Go for a 2 x 4 GB kit or 2 x 8 GB kit. Your only choice right now is DDR3. The cost can vary from roughly $50 USD give or take $10-$20 to almost $200 USD and more.


Which i5? 2nd Generation, 3rd Generation, or 4th Generation Core i5? The cost should be at around $200 give or take $10 to $20 USD.

Video card:

Try to avoid being loyal to one side or the other (NVIDIA or AMD) because some AMD GPUs are way better, but some NVIDIA GPUs are better.

The 128bit or 256bit is the bandwidth of the memory. The higher the number, the faster the memory can be in some ways.

The amount of memory you'd want is about 2GB, yeah. The more the merrier, but it mostly benefits textures.

You can go for any video card you want, but the GT 640 might not be an appreciable upgrade from the 410m. You'll notice it, but I dunno...


Yeah, this is a little bit of a personal thing because take me for example: I have two 60 GB solid state drives and it's all I need. One is for Windows and programs, and the other is for things like My Documents and even my desktop.

Like the power supply, the hard drive is a bit of an investment, so try to get good ones.


Not really. I would also like to see you build it instead of making someone do it for you. That way, you can make sure it's done right the first time. You won't need to know how to do anything because you can lean on us.

I also recommend posting this thread over on, but make it clear that you're not overclocking. They are very good at building computers.

Hi I'm new to the forum and I'd like some help please. I just bought a budget PC and would like to know where to look to upgrade it or if that was even possible.

Its an eMachines E4082 desktop running XP.

Intel Pentium D 820 (Each at 2.80ghz)
ATI Radeon Xpress 200 with available PCI Express slot (Pretty sure this is an onboard card)

Basically what I would like to find out is if I can upgrade this machine and the best places to look. How do I find out if graphics cards will be compatible? Will any DDR2 RAM work with it? Really am a newbie with PC's when it comes to the hardware side but I would like to play a few older PC games on the machine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's a dual core CPU, no dedicated GPU and no OS. I would look for something with at least 4 core CPU, that has a dedicated GPU and with an OS installed. That price range will be around $400 to $500 (USD). For $500 USD, you could build a very good PC for just about any computing task.

A:Need a budget gaming pc

Hello Tech,
try this configuration, leaves you room for speakers,optical, etc

good for performance at 1680x1050 on high for most games

If you really need to start shaving the cost down because of peripherals, a few suggestions:
go with the 7750 or 7850 BE and OC it. (will need a different Motherboard i believe)
two, if you have a little faith the 4830 is different in two ways from the 4850 it has 4-shader clusters for 640 total, and 8 less texture units (32). the major vendors of ati cards (in order to get a competitive advantage) have turned on the 5th shader cluster, and the 8 texture units to make them effectively 4850's. and can be had for $89.00. i would also recommend the 4770, if a guy could find one.

A:Looking for budget processor for gaming

Judging by your pricing I'd probably go with the E6500. Except for the lower L2 cache (2mb) compared to the E7500's 3mb the CPU's are identical except that the E6500 is branded "Dual Core" and the E7500 is a "Core 2 Duo". Both are Wolfdale (Penryn 45nm) CPU's.
Theoretically the E7500's larger cache should make it faster in some applications, but the E6500 should still provide 90-95% of the E7500's performance .
This review of 131 CPU's includes all the processors you have listed, and as an added bonus includes a Crysis benchmark. The only downside is that the review is in French, although Google translate might help you out. The graphs of course are self explanatory.
Here is a Crysis optimization guide to help get the best out of the game should you need it.

Hi guys! as a general novice to computers, I jumped in at the deep end, and will try to build a gaming pc (or at least be shown to by my dad!). but as a novice, I would like some suggestion on what bits of kit to buy, with a few requirements:
EVERYTHING must play nice with each other
it must be capable to run diablo 3, guild wars, minecraft/tekkit, gnomoria, and TF2
the maximum budget would be around £300.

Any and all suggestion will be appreciated, and thanks in advance

PS: sorry if this is in the wrong place, rather noobish to this site

A:Trying to build a gaming PC on a budget

Hey mate.

First thing's first, £300 is a pretty damn tight budget for any computer, let alone a gaming pc, so don't be expecting anything too mind-blowing.
to get you started, I'm gonna assume you live in the UK so we'll be using for your purchases.

Before we go any further, could you tell us a few things:
- Do you already own peripherals? (monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers)
- Do you have a copy of windows, or will we need to buy one?
- Do you have any parts you can re-use from elsewhere? (HDD, Optical drive, etc.)
- Is there any way you can raise your budget? like I said before, £300 is pretty darn tight.

Try to give us as much information as possible - help us help you

AMD Sempron 140 2.70GHz
Asus M4N68T-M LE NForce 630a
2-4GB DDR3 PC3-10666 1333MHz
WD 500GB Sata
Some type of akasa 600watt ish PSU
Decent £30 gaming case from ebay
Any ideas on budget graphics cards? was thinking GTX 260 or maybe less
oh and dvd drives are dirt cheap now as i believe

This is just a random idea, cause i know a few people looking to buy gaming pc's, was wondering if it would be worth while building them to sell on for a small profit? even if i bought parts in bulk or job lots etc

Any thoughts, ideas, comments or opinions, post please, constructive only please, no flaming

Alright. I decided that I want to build a gaming computer. Something about building one myself will give me more satisfaction than just buying one as I'm sure most of you agree. My question is, whats a good Intel processor that I should consider getting. I'm consider getting a XFX nForce 680i SLI Motherboard along with a XFX GeForce 8800 GTS Extreme Video Card. Haven't decided on the RAM and what not. I can't afford the new Intel Extremes. Looking to spend maybe $200, possibly $300 but thats a last resort. Any suggestions?

I want to upgrade my PC for gaming. Current specs:

Windows 7 64-bit build 7600
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.67 GHz
Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT
750W PSU

Scores at Windows Experience Index:

Processor: 7,2
RAM. 7,2
Graphics: 6,8
Game graphics: 6,8
HDD: 5,9

At the moment I can run every game except for Crysis & Warhead with everything maxed out and high resolution (1600-1200 ++) plus some AA, FPS 30-60+. I've been looking at the 1GB HD5870 card, it costs about $400 right now but prices may drop. Crysis & warhead I can run on very high/enthusiast with low resolutions (1280x1024 and lower) and no AA with 20-40 FPS.

Anyway how can I improve my gaming with a vudget of $500...?

Thanks a bunch for any help!

Okay guys, instead of upgrading my pc, im going to build a budget gaming pc.
My current choices are,




OS- Windows 7 64bit

RAM- i need a good(cheap) price on 4 Gigs of RAM, that fits this motherboard. Link please?

HDD- Does fit the motherboard? if not,
Can someone please give me a link on what HDD fits, thats around 500GB and in between $50-$100?

I cant think of anything else besides a video card that i need, anything else thats cheap and will make the build better will be very helpful.

A:Budget Gaming PC Build

Why not get everything from newegg, comes with the same single shipping costs, also lower prices... The same hard drive:

You will need a power supply, and on deciding what kind of one, we'd need to know what kind of a graphics card you're going to use. Without knowing, I'd just recommend something that will power just about anything you might have:

If you don't absolutely want an orange case, you could cut 10$ off by getting the black version:
And here's another orange case you might want to take a peek at: (also availabe in other colors, just see cases, Raidmax)

A:Budget Gaming Build

I would recommend this build instead:

Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 AMD 740G uATX Motherboard - Retail - $52.99 + free shipping
AMD Athlon X2 7850 Kuma 2.8GHz Black Edition CPU - Retail - $60.00 + free shipping
G.SKILL 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800MHz Dual-Channel Kit - Retail - $46.99 + free shipping
Sapphire Radeon HD 4830 512MB GDDR3 PCI-Express 2.0 x16 Graphics Card - Retail - $93.24 + free shipping
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - OEM - $56.99 + free shipping
Corsair CMPSU-400CX 400W PSU with Active PFC - Retail - $49.99 ($39.99 after $10 rebate) + free shipping
Rosewill Wind Ryder RZLS142A-P BK Dual 120mm Cooling Fans and Mesh Design Front Panel Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail - $39.99 + free shipping
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit - OEM - $99.99 + free shipping
Grand Total = $500 approximately. Everything ships free.

If your friend can stretch their budget a bit, I recommend this card instead of the HD 4830.

Also, look at this page to see if and how your friend can get their copy of the Windows 7 equivalent of Vista Home Premium, for only the cost of S&H ($9.99). I'm not sure whether or not that particular version of Vista is eligible, but if it is, then your friend's in luck.

I'd like to update my desktop PC for gaming, but I don't know much about system specs. My maximum budget is 500 USD/300 GBP including shipping/transport, etc. I live in the UK (London, England), so if possible I'd like to buy from UK sites/stores in order to avoid shipping costs.

Current system:

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66 GHz (4 CPUs)
DirectX 11
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Unfortunately it's a Dell (I was stupid computer-wise some years ago), so I supppose I won't be able to overclock.

Thanks a lot for your help.

A:Updating my PC for gaming, budget: 500 USD

Hi and welcome to TSG.

There are quite a few UK users on here, so rather than converting the USD budget can you give an actual GBP budget?

What level of gaming are we talking about here, are you wanting to play the latest games?

Graphics card update is the most obvious choice, however that will likely also require a PSU upgrade also. With it being a Dell (or any other brand made machine) the available physical space inside the case could also be a problem.

To get some ideas here are a couple of decent UK sites that I use fairly regularly:

I don't know Medion but if you're willing to spend 1k more then I'd recommend any MSI laptops they have pretty good specs and are far cheaper than an AlienWare and what not.

Could you guys tell me what you think? Anyone have an idea of what kind of performance i'd get out of this machine?
What kind of fps would I be getting out of say Fallout 4 on medium settings i'm not that fussed about ultra settings as I know this machine wont do ultra.
Thankyou In advance.

A:Budget gaming pc - opinions?

For a basic PC that's for general computing that will be just for a gaming rig....not so good. You'll have issues with the CPU and GPU, both are low end components. For decent gaming experience I would opt for the i5 4590 (preferably the 4690) CPU. Then get a GTX 960 GPU.

A:Budget Gaming Card


Hey thats a pretty good system...But i'd recommand you get a atleast 1 gig ram and as far as a good video card is concerned you can either get a Geforce 6600 GT but if your willing to spend a Few extra bucks not much though you can get a Geforce 6800 128 mb ( plays bf2, doom 3, and hl2 on high settings on my computer....But if you have a 1 gig ram )which is a really good card and they are pretty cheap aswell.. OR if you want any ATI video cards and you have a PCI-e i'd go for the Radeon X800 pro or X800 XL but i think those are really expensive as compared to the budget you stated so i would go with the Radeon X700 XT ....

well the conclusion....I'd go with the Geforce 6800 (Vanilla) ..its much better than Geforce 6600 GT

Hey guys, first of all, im new so here by id like to say hi ^^ Anyway the reason why i decided to post here is because i have a question about a system im putting together.
Its a budget gaming system, well budget... the graphcards costed me some anyway these are the specs:

Motherboard: MSI 790GX-G65
Processor: AMD Phenom II X2 550 3.10 GHz, 3600 MHz, 2x 512kB , 6 MB, Boxed
Graphic card: Foxconn GeForce 8800 GT
RAM: Adata 2GB DDR3

Well... that are the specifications. What do you all think, is this a pretty good gaming system, so i can play for example crysis on high or call of duty modern warfare 2 and such?



A:Budget gaming system

From what I can tell you should be able to run Crysis on high. Im running a system with similar specs than that and have maxed out the graphics on Cyrsis and still ran at a very playable frame rate.
Im running:

Intel E8400 (3.0Ghz) OCC to 3.6ghz
OCZ DDR2 2 gig Dual channel kit
EVGA 9800GT 512MB - OCC a bit

But even with nothing OCC was able to run Crysis with no troubles.

Thats my 2 cents .

As for how good those brands/parts are I have no clue.

A:New gaming PC ~700 euro budget

I built my brother-in-law a gaming rig earlier this year utilizing the AMD hexacore 1055T with 8 gigs of G.Skill RAM. He is very, very pleased.

As for the OS go with the Windows 7 64-bit. Yes, it runs older games.

As for the power supply, don't go cheap. It is the backbone of all systems. There are several good psu manufacture's but I like what Corsair offers. Depending on your final build a 650 watt or 750 watt psu should do you fine.

* There will be other contributors that regular post here that will probably answer giving excellent advice.

Man, $200 isn't really enough to get yourself a proper build, even without the parts you listed. If I were you, I'd wait until I had a good $400-500 dollars before you begin to think about a gaming PC.

A:Building a gaming PC, budget $500. Help needed

Very good post! Possibly the best i've seen all month.

Foxconn ELA LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - $70 to expand...

Very good choice, but its actually $100, you can go for a gigabyte P43 for about $85 if your pressed for money. Asus P5Q and P5Q SE are very good boards, with a minor $2 price difference the last time i checked.

Everything looks good except I think it would be wiser to go for 4770, though that 4850 is ridiculously cheep. Are you in factoring mail in rebates? The 4770 is maybe the better deal.

Take a set of OCZ Vista Upgrade 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2VU8002GK - Retail for $21,
or PNY Optima 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model MD4096KD2-667 - Retail at $37,

or a CORSAIR CMPSU-450VX 450W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Retail at $75.

Do you know what OS you are using? This of couse, does not include a mouse, monitor, keyboard, speaker(s), or cd/dvd drive, and I haven't the time to add up all the prices.

I already have ram, i am medium tech knowledge so if i can get some input from you guys about the motherboard that i am pick up. (maybe asus pq5 45)? and the HDD 1 TB, i can get cheaper but it would be either 16 mb or it would run at 5400 rpm.Click to expand...

You should probably get the 7200rpm drive if possible, unless your power conscious.

EDIT: Found the time to link this $80 p43 and this $96 p45

Hi everyone
I'm Indrashis,I live in Kolkata(India) and I want to build a midrange gaming rig for around 26000-30000 rupees.
I have keyboards and mouse and a 16inch LCD monitor so i wont be buying those things and i will be playing Crysis,COD 6,Metro 2033 etc games.
(Also I want to have DDR3 RAM in my rig)
Please suggest accordingly.

A:System configuration for mid-budget gaming pc

Hi Indrashis95. Welcome to Techspot.

With a budget of around 30K INR you'll have to make do with an AMD dual or triple core system.

Look into the Phenom II X2 555 BE or if you can find the Phenom II X3 720. Any board with an AMD 770 / 870 chipset should do fine. You might be able to squeeze in the Phenom II X4 925 if you find a cheap enough motherboard.

As you'll be gaming on a 16" monitor I assume that your resolution will not exceed 1280x1024. A Radeon HD 5770 will be more than enough. In fact you could even consider the cheaper HD 4770 / 4850 for your system.

A 2x2GB DDR3 kit will do good. A good quality 450W PSU (with sufficient amps on the 12V rails) should run the system.

Just hunt around for the best possible prices. The vendors here are usually out to fleece you.

Incidentally, I'm also from Kolkata.

Hello, right now i'm aiming at the Asrock z77 extreme4 it has a nice 8+4 power phase, pci-e 3.0 support, pretty nice overclocking board. The question, is there a better opinion for a bit lower price? I won't use crossfire or sli, so it seems useless for me on this board so if there is a better opinion it can be without sli/crossfire.

A:Choosing budget Gaming motherboard

I go to for a quick look at what's currently available. (Unfortunately, they only do business in the USA and Canada.)

It appears that the best bargain in a Z77 board is the ASRock Z77 Pro3. It has slightly unusual dimensions (30.5X19.3cm, rather than 30.5X24.4cm for a full-sized ATX board), but it's not microATX. I'm not sure what you give up with it, but it has favorable reviews for a "budget" board. At Newegg, it's considerably less expensive than the Extreme4.

I've not used one.

I should think that you don't really want to go cheaper than that for good least don't go to 128mb ram

If you want to cut costs, go for 256mb PC2100, and the Radeon 7500..i shouldn't think that he'd get much of a difference out of the faster memory.

A:Budget Gaming PC Config...!Need more recomendations

Only things that's I'd say really is that I would get a slightly more powerful PSU. (I'm guessing by SMPS you mean switching mode power supply or something similar?) It would be worth getting a 550W PSU (power supply unit) in my opinion, because there's no such thing as having too much power as the PSU only supplies what the PC needs.

Also, i've heard that Light Scribe is overrated as it takes a long time to burn the picture and it only does black and white. I think the discs are quite expensive too.

The 8600GT is an ok card but get a higher model if you can afford it. You might even consider a high 7 series model unless you're going to be running Vista, e.g. the 7900GS or 7950GT if you can find one.

If you get some Arctic Silver thermal paste then you could probably OC the CPU on the stock heatsink if you wanted to and understood enough about OC'ing. Let me know if you are interested in this.

A:Will I Have To WaterCool?? $3000 Gaming Computer Budget

hi mstpaintball,

I want to purchase my Motherboard and CPU in a Combo so that the CPU is already installed to the MotherboardClick to expand...

I would recommend doing it yourself. otherwise you will be paying them money to do less than 1 minute worth of work (unless you pay them even more money to use generic thermal grease instead of the stock thermal pad that comes with it).

If you're concerned about damaging it... don't worry. Althon64's have a large metal heatspreader over the CPU die, so it's not like the old socket-A processors with an exposed die that you could damage very easily.

So, will this setup have to be watercooled? I just feel uneasy about watercooling. I probably won't be Overclocking anything.Click to expand...

no, it doesn't have to be watercooled. if you planned on overclocking or you want a silent computer then that's another story. but you will be fine with the stock cooling (if you don't mind the noise)

This is going to be a Gaming Computer, so if I've overlooked something, like making a bad processor choice or something let me knowClick to expand...

1. the only thing I would say that you overlooked is the power supply. that's going to be a powerful system, and will need a quality PSU that can deliver solid, clean power and protection for your expensive components. I would recommend a 500w or higher PSU from a reputable company like OCZ, Antec, Enermax, Fortron, SeaSonic, or PCP&C to name a few, but read reviews for specific models before you decide what to buy (especially pertaining to SLI, just being "SLI certified" may not be enough to power those beasts)

2. your processor choice seems fine to me. (it'll run circles around my 3000+ ) also, I hate to suggest going over to the dark side (haha :haha but just to be fair... you may want to consider waiting a few weeks for the Intel conroe processors to come out, they are said to outperform all existing processors, including the AMD FX-62 (AMD's best CPU)

3. you didn't specify what RAM you'll be using. since it will be a gaming rig you want the best performance possible out of that thing so don't just buy any old RAM, get some high end RAM from brands like mushkin, OCZ, kingston, or corsair to name a few.

other than that, it's going to be one hell of a rig! and you're budget of $3,000.00 should leave with with plenty of extra cash in the end.

cheers :wave:

A:New budget rig. Gaming and audio. How drastic will the gains be?

In a few months people keep saying there will be all sorts of new video cards released which will in turn make all other cards a lot cheaper, so if you are not having any trouble with what ya go I would hold off on upgrading. It looks like whats holding you back is your processor, replacing that alone would probably let you play any current game on max settings no problem.

A:Requesting advice for building a budget gaming PC

I vote for the graphics adapter as being the single most important factor in a gaming PC.

Out of your choices the monitor would be the second most important. However without adequate power to the graphics card it would be rendered useless, so I believe the Power Supply would be the second most important factor in gaming.

With CPU gaining in performance and becoming less of a factor in gaming, I would give the CPU the third most important position.

If you had included the Power Supply and CPU in your pole above, I would have made the monitor fourth most important factor. After all what good is being able to view a good picture if you can't produce the picture with better quality parts listed in the top three I mentioned above.

In my opinion RAM and Sound Cards would have very little importance as RAM is not all that expensive to purchase and on-board sound is usually sufficient.

I noticed you are looking for a gaming card and referenced to the Passmark benchmarks of 1000 as a recommended score. You might should consider looking at cards that will score at least 2000.

You are likely more limited by a 400W PSU than your budget. First check you vendor and sort by price, then check the specs for the one with 400W or less minimum PSU.
An nVIDIA 650 of some kind may fit you well.

Hey, I was looking into making/buying a new pc that can run all the new stuff pretty well, and something that will last me the next 3 years for gaming, then through college for around $1600. Is it cheaper to build my own computer, or buy one from a manufacturer? I've been doing a lot of shopping but there’s so many acronyms and different stuff and it drives me crazy! I don't have any experience building computers, but I've heard it isn’t that hard, I've been attempting to educate myself about it.

If, which i probably will, I build my own computer, what's the best place to shop for parts? I've been looking at; I'm wondering if there's somewhere better.

Please post your advice, rig setups etc, and thanks for your help, i appreciate it!

It is possible, albeit hard and you take some chances buying not brand name stuff.

graphics card: radeon hd 4670


cpu: core 2 duo e5300

ram: 2x1gb

psu: 500w+

hdd: 500gb


ODD: dvd burner

With the stuff I picked out, it is well under-budget, but the off brands may not be as good.
It comes to about $350 or so.

EDIT: forgot OS

And that brings it to about $460

Yes, insofar as motherboards aren't dependant upon which DirectX API the card is capable of utilising. Graphics card compatibility is dependant upon the slot interface the motherboard uses.
Your MSI board uses PCI-E graphics slot
GTX 260 uses PCI-E graphics slot

The GTX 260 isn't DirectX 11 capable, so why DX11 is an issue is a moot point.

Looks like a nice system! Two things came to mind as I had a once over.

1. I'd do some research on that PSU. I haven't heard of that maker (which doesn't say much, there are a LOT of makers I have never heard of). No-name PSUs are a headache. See what some others say about it. It is possible that the one you have chosen is a big name maker, I honestly don't know.

2. Why get a ATI video card? I actually prefer ATI over Geforce myself (the Canadian in me), but if you are going to get an SLI motherboard, you may as well keep your future upgrade options open. Recommend getting a Geforce, so that down the road if you want to stick another in there you can link them up. Why tie your own hands?

Also, another thought... I know I said I only had 2 thoughts but.....

That Venus12, how loud is it? My last computer had a volcanoe heatsink/fan and it was like a jet engine in my living room. Drove me INSANE. :knock:

X Blade Silver ATX casing, 2 x Akasa AK191SM fans and standard Heatsink and CPU fans

A:Help for specs on gaming PC

Drop down to a Phenom II X2 55x series CPU and get a more powerful video card instead. Also, what're the specs on the PSU? (brand and model number)

Lastly, I'd recommend the Cooler Master HAF 912 and the NZXT Beta EVO as better cases. Choose whatever fits your budget best, but the HAF 912 is the better of the two IMHO.

Ok, I am a novice when it comes to hardware. I am looking for a something to Boost my gaming to the point where The Elder scrolls: Oblivion would run fine on my system. Right now everything is factory. So I am wondering what I need to increase my capabilities to that point, Which I stated earlier. I am willing to spend 150$ right now for upgrades, and need to know what I would need for the job. I wrote down my specs when I joined. I dont know if you can see them,but if you need them I will be happy to post them. I am thinking I need a very nice video card and more ram. But how much ram and what video card? And maybe a price on how much I would have to spend. I am taking all recommendations. In advance I appreciate the help and advice.


A:Gaming Specs

I cannot find any information or pics of your system at the instance, so I cannot say anything definite.
These two should be good for you: +
The 4670 will in a few weeks be replaced by 5650, which will perform the same or better, cost a little less and produce less heat, consume less power and have DirectX11 capability (which you don't need/can't even use for Oblivion, but it'll be good to have).
More RAM would help, too, but I really can't know what kind as I can't find any info on things. Please post back in this thread soon so that I get an subscription update and won't forget to get further into this when I have a bit more time.

I'd recommend a better graphics card.

If you are on a budget, you probably wouldn't need 16GB memory for gaming just yet. A $60 savings on 2x4GB modules, would go along way in getting a better graphics card. I'd recommend at least Radeon HD 7790 or the newer release Radeon R7 260X.

A:Help Required for Gaming Specs

I would recommend at least 4GB of RAM (any more than 4GB of RAM you will need a 64bit version of Windows).

Any reasonable Nvidia or ATI graphics card will do.

Although if you're doing this in the next two years I would recommend waiting before you buy because the price of everything will drop and the speed will increase.

Processor wise I'd go for an Intel i5 at the minimum or any other Intel quad core equivalent (you might be able to get away with a mid to high end i3), although the chances are an i5 will be considered slow in a couple of years so buy it nearer the time of building if you have the chance, it'll be cheaper and faster.

I hope this helps.

Hi everyone, I'm looking at getting my first computer specifically for gaming; but I haven't got much of an idea of what specs I need and what I can get for the amount of money I want to spend.

I'm wanted to spend around £500-£600. I'd want to be able to play new games and ones which will be coming out in the relative future (mmorpgs/fps etc) and games such as skyrim, battlefield, hitman, crysis 3, gta & far cry 3 -which I know require a good graphics card etc. would it make sense getting windows 8 or not?

can anyone give me details as to what specs I need to look for and/or recommend me any computers in the £500-£600 range?

thanks guys

Windows 7 is probably a better choice. It doesnt matter though. This is what I put together: Add in the Corsair TX650V2 PSU, I forgot to include it in the cart. The cart is on Amazon by the way. It is a bit over budget, but it will play your games at very high, if not max settings.

There are some great LCD´s on the market, but if you want very good image quality, and no ghosting, you have to pay for that. Also, to get the best image quality, you should use the LCD at its native resolution. Of course you can use it at other resolutions, but the image quality won´t be the best.
Unfortunately, if you want a big monitor (17" or 19") and want to use the native resolution, you need a powerful computer to run the games smoothly at those high resolutions.

If you, like me, don´t have a cutting edge machine, look for a 15" LCD. Its native resolution its 1024x768. That should tax too much your machine.

A while ago i got this computer as a gift, and it worked nicely, mostly because i just wanted to play what i had and it was better than the old one. Now though i've got some cash and want to get some games, but first i need to upgrade. Comp's specs

I've already bought new RAM so my next target is a video card. Looking around it appears i use PCIx16 or w/e cards. I'd like something that would last me at least a year or two but it doesn't need to be top of the line. Suggestions on the card choices themselves, and also if i need to do anything else please tell me. *note* wow i must be tired because this reads horribly lol. o well.

Would these gaming pc specs be able to run games like DayZ on high settings? Give me suggestions if I should change some parts.

GTX 760 isn't much of a gaming card for a $2000 rig.
Probably should think about getting a gtx 780Ti or R9 290.

A:Looking for a gaming CPU for my pc (specs included)

Can you find out which motherboard or chipset your system is running. CPU-Z should be able to get this info.

What's your price range for the new CPU?

A possibility:
AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Deneb 3.0GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ940XCJ4DGI

You'd need to get a heatsink for the new processor since it's an OEM chip.
