Preferred Solution: Help me build a PC Gamer rig

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

ok so i have been doin my research and i feel quite overwhlemed, the way i figure it, it would be better to have several lists and weigh the performance to price instead of searching through the endless numbers and benchmarks to find the setup i want out of millions of possibilities, and you all undoubtedly know more than me about building a proper gaming rig​
what should i buy? a complete list of all needed parts (excluding OS) would be the most helpful if you wouldn't mind

i have a budget at the moment of about 800-1000 dollars
any help would be greatly appreciated

thanks

I am having a very good time with this build. It is about 2 weeks old and I have been gaming my arse off.

Too bad I couldn't afford a set of 7990's but this gets the job done quite well. I am happier than a fat kid with a cake.

can anyone recommend a decent gaming pc around 600 bucks. im looking for at least 512 ram, a decent 128mb video card, and a pretty good processer (not celeron). oh yea and id like it to be prebuilt, im not to good at putting them together myself.
 

A:gamer pc

You could use the the following two build-it-yourself guides for what hardware to look for in a pre-built PC:

$1000 gaming pc parts

$500 web-surfing pc parts.

Now go to the pre-built PC places and see the cost when you custom-build it from the website. You could try Dell, ABS Computers, or other brands.

The most cost-saving thing to do if you have a tight budget is to cannabalize your current system and put it in a new system. Just my two cents. (I know you don't want to build it yourself.)

A few months ago my games started freezing mid-frame and I could not access any computer functions after this happened. Gradually, it took less and less time to do this until it started to freeze after just 5 minutes of playing. I assumed it must be the graphics card and changed mine for an NVIDIA GeForce 7600 graphics card but that still had no effect. These are additional hardware I am running on my computer and if anyone could help me with this problem I would be very happy:

AMD Athlon 64 x 2 Dual Core Processor 3800+

1.99 GHz, 1.00 RAM

. Thank you.

A:Gamer in need of help

There are several possible reasons that you could be having an issue.

Could you please post the specs of the machine?
System type eg. Dell, Compaq, HP etc. and model or
Motherboard type and model
The power supply being used.
Any info about temperatures that you know.

Is it just one game or different ones?
Which game?

Have you checked all fans for operation and cleared out any dust from the inside?

Somebody has installed a key logger on my system! it was installed on my puter here. the only way i found it is that i rebooted the other day and this little box came up saying your free trail is up for advance key logger enter new code. well i did not do it and i have run every spy ware and virus checker i can find. i can not locate it any where in my system.... need some suggestions on how to get rid of it. thx.............skid

A:just a dumb gamer

Grisoft MIGHT find it. It finds the Keylogger I have zipped in a file on my HD. I don't know about how it will work on a keylogger that is installed on your system.

There's a prog called "Trojan Hunter" that I d/l'd P2P that worked pretty well, but then I found out that it was copyrighted and so I removed it. There might be shareware out there that will find it.

What would really help is if you got the name of the keylogger. Also I think there is a prog called "keylogger killer". I think that one is freeware and I remember it seemed to work pretty good.

On the issue of who installed it:

I had a keylogger that claimed that you could "attach" it to another file (like a jpeg or mpeg or something executable) and then when you activated the file, it would install the keylogger. So you might spend some time looking for the "host" file. The other alternative to HOW you got it installed is if someone did it directly to your computer. As in your wife, girlfriend, parent,etc...

Solving that Security Issue is also important.

hey again!!

Ok so a few months ago i bought a new graphic card (ASUS AH3650 Silent).

now i reinstalled windows 7 and ive installed the software ASUS gamer OSD that came with the graphic card. It is a program that allows you to broadcast, Record Movies and capture screenshots while playing game.

So today i wanted to try to record the gameplay in world of warcraft which worked just fine in full screen mode(which i hate xD) So when i change WoW to windowed mode the ASUS gamer OSD program wont recognize the game. I press the hot key CTRL+Alt+O and nothing happens.

Ive tryed to look through the settings and googled the answer but nothing helped me so now i hope that someone that has this program aswell and manage to get it to work with wow or any other game that runs in windowed mode can help me.

Thanks in advance!

The sound is utterly bad, not clean, it screeches a lot, i also found that as soon as i start any kind of application (I.e. Dragon Age or Aion) the sound vanishes completely and everything is muted.

I've downloaded everything, uninstalled my audio card at least 10 times with no results, they system also does not find it if i uninstall it and i restart.

Today the audio card also led my PC to boot failure, solved as soon as i uninstalled it.

i am looking at some gamecube games as a gift for an 11 year old kid. he got all sports games and most of mario games and from what i understand is that he is bored playing kids games (played shark tails for 2 days and finished it). so my question is, how violent is prince of persia - sands of time. it is rated teen but he played Lord of the rings before and it is ok with him.
thanks.

Hello all,

I have had my normal Audigy2 card for years now, and it is starting to play up, like cutting out in games, and often when i'm facing someone who is talking to me I can't hear them and will have to turn to the side to hear them, things like that lol.
I was planning to upgrade the card anyway, but i'm not sure whether I should get the X-Fi Gamer or Music. I hear they are essentially the same thing, although the Gamer is the newer edition. More people swear by the Music though.

I would love some advice, as they are both available, and both basically the same price.
 

A:Gamer or Music?

OK, thanks. I can't imagine using Vista anytime soon, and even if I did, a patch would probably be out by then to add support do you think? I am using XP Home at the moment.

A BETTER WAY

Ok don't yell at me but the problem has happened again BUT i found a way to fix it alot faster than before . first i uninstalled all the software with the uninstaller and took the card out and booted back to windows .Then i went and got a pretty good registry tool found at http://www.vtoy.fi/jv16/shtml/software.shtml
it's called regcleaner. i used it to find all registry keys called "creative" and removed them all . after that i searched all the hard drive for everything named "creative" and deleted those . I shut down windows and reinstalled the card and booted up again oddly enough it didn't ask me anything about installing new drivers so i put the driver disk (came with sb audigy gamer) in and installed everything like normal and it found it and after it restarted i was back to normal. i'm keeping notes on what i'm doing so if it happens again i might have an idea of what's causing it.

Howdy. I'm a bit confused about system req's and a game I recently installed. The game, Hyperspace Invader, has the following req's . . . PII-600 / 64M RAM / 16M Video 3D, Windows XP, DirectX 9.0 and I'm running XP HomeSP2/DirectX 9.0c/Celeron CPU 2.93 GHz/ 504mb RAM/ and I don't know how to determine the Video/3D spec.
Anyway, the game runs fine, but I hear my processor kicking into high during game play . . . which I've seldom heard before on this PC.
I guess my real question is if pushing the cpu's is at all dangerous to my computer? I can only hear it during transitions in the game. Is this normal behavior when playing today's video games? Am I hurting my PC?
Thanks in advance, folks!

It appears the latest large windows update, has made the latest driver for my card unusable. I'm getting no sound and the software gives me an error of the device is not found on the system.

I know this is an older card, and I'm hoping that Creative puts out a new driver soon to solve this issue, in the meantime, any suggestions? I can get sound through the HD TV I use as my monitor, it's even halfway decent sound, but I'd rather get my speaker set back up and runnning.

Any workaround oh windows 10 guru's? Or do I just wait.

Hi, I'm using a Linksys router (works great, but out of warranty) and setup port forwarding 6 months ago to allow friends to dial into me and play an online game. This worked with multiple people during the summer, & one person in particular all of last week.

However, We tried to play again on Sunday to no avail, and others cannot connect to me either, suggesting the problem is on my end.

On Saturday Vista suggested I download 'updates', which I did. This is the only change I can detect. The port forwarding is still setup correctly far as I can tell.

Anyhoo i have about ?50-60 to spend , does anyone here have the xfi gamer? is it good with games and perhance whats it like in windows 7?

Thankyou

A:Xfi Xtreme Gamer , thoughts?

I have the gamer card but I did not install the 7 beta yet so can't tell you from experience. I saw several people on guru3d forums claiming they got X-Fi to run under 7 using the original X-Fi drivers for Vista - guess that's in the compatibility mode. These drivers were also hacked by one guy already so that they are recognized by Win 7 without the compatibility mode. If I was to buy today I would go for the Titanium though - it is the real PCI-e - unlike any other PCI-e sound card. They all use the PCI to PCI-e bridge and only the X-Fi Titanium is the real thing. I am sure it will be fully supported in 7 - it is the newest card from soundblaster.

My gamer tag is not associated with my main Microsoft account that I use. It seems like a big pain to have to create a whole new user and switch to it in order to use the xbox live app. Does anyone know if there is anyway to log into a different Xbox live gamer tag than the user account you are logged into? If not do you think this will change? I have a gamer tag associated with my main Microsoft account that I don't use... So I can't just transfer my gamer tag to my main Microsoft account...

I'm using Windows 7 x64 with the latest drivers for the X-Fi xtremegamer sound card. It seems that my volume control unit no longer automatically knows that my headphones are plugged in (using creative inspire t5400). I have to open up the control panel and manually change from 5.1 -> headphones any time I make the switch which is kind of annoying. On XP I could have it set up to 5.1, and at night just plug in my headphones and hear things just fine. Now under Windows 7 I set it to 5.1 and plug in my headphones and all of a sudden I can't hear anything until I manually make the change in the control panel. Whats going on?

Why don't you try the Gaming Edition? [as you say you have it as a trial version.]
See how you find it. Compare it with Norton 360.
It will give you a feel as to what you would prefer. See if it is as light & fast as is claimed. You are going to be the best judge.
Then if you find it similar to 360, save the money & use 360.

I have a SoundBlaster X-FI Xtreme Gamer sound card, and want to plug in my Wireless Sony headphones using optical (the receiver of the headphones that is) cable. However, the cable has a square shape end (as does the headphone receiver), and the card doesn't have a port like that- my motherboard does, so for the moment, i have to use that. The X-FI says it has S/PDIF out, and that is an option in the audio devices menu, and one of the ports on the card glows red, but it is something like a 3.5mm jack. Is there an adapter or different cable i can get?

Hello. I have an Audigy 2ZS audio card, and I was playing around with the EQ settings to get great sound out of my speakers (I'm a mini-audiophile ), and I had turned on the 'Advanced EQ' in the ZS Audio Console, and had enabled the Graphic Equalizer. However, when I tried to play C&C Renegade (The only EAX-enabled game I have (I think...)...) with these effects enabled, the sound completely went out. When I turned off either the Advanced EQ or the Graphic Equalizer, the sound came back on, and it also came back on if I disabled the EAX option in C&C Renegade. My question is: Is this a limitation of the EAX capabilities of the Audigy 2ZS, or is it another issue? Thank you for your replies!

Hiya,

Would want some advice about choosing the next edition of Windows 10, like the title says I play a load of different games and when they first announced all the different editions I thought that the Windows 10 Home would be a good choice until I heard that Microsoft will force Home users with updates which is okay and I do understand their reasoning but eh, that means that at any given time my computer might restart when I'm in a game.

Would Pro be a better substitute or would people still advice me to go with Home?

Hi,

i'm curious if anybody is still using their x-fi xtremegamer soundcard on windows 8.1 OS.

I really wanted to dump it and use my onboard realtek ALC892. But, the audio to my surprise was inferior. Odd that a card I acquired in 2008 still beats out a modern onboard sound solution even beyond the ALC892 iteration.

thanks in advance for your thoughts.

OK so, I am very competitive with my brother. His system specs are:

Most games aren't designed for multicore systems yet. I would think that his 3D mark score would be higher than yours being that his video card is better, and his cpu is designed a little more around the enthusiast market.

Yes, add-in graphics cards are the way to go if you are in to graphic intensive games. Onboard graphics have vastly improved, and some can even run the newer games (motherboard with the NVIDIA nForce 430 southbridge for example), but you have to turn all the setting down. Worse, the onboard graphics get dated a lot faster. If you have a PCI-e expansion slot, your motherboards life is greatly extended (via upgrades)

That is quite a wide price range....

Okay--we always talk about good MOBOs and people are always recommending boards and they seem to always have two PCIE-16 slots. For example, I just had a new build with an Asus A8R-MVP board, which is a nice board, but it has two PCIE-16 slots, which is a waste if you're not going to game. Wouldn't most people be better off with this board:

which is cheaper also? Or is there something else about the dual PCIEs that makes them better?

If you aren't overclocking, then just look for a stable motherboard that has great reviews and that is compatible with your CPU. I would buy RAM based on the tested/approved list provided by the motherboard manufacturer to ensure compatibility.

Motherboards do not come with operating systems. Sometimes you can find a bundle on sites like newegg, tigerdirect, etc.

1) Is the impact on gaming that DirectX 10 gives actually significant?
2) Can I download DirectX 10 on XP?
3) If the answer is yes to 1, and no to 2, then which version of Vista is the most "gamer friendly"?

That being said, PC Gamer has gotten "cheap" the this year: they use thinner paper and have less content than before. We kept the subscription because the game reviews pretty much are dead-on and we like their take on game previews.

A:Video card upgrade for a gamer

According to your specs the best card you can get is the Radeon X1950Pro/XT. Really great card and cheap nowdays .

If you want something less fast but cheaper look for any GeForce 7600GS/GT or Radeon X1650Pro/XT.

If you plan on a Vista upgrade you may want to get a DX10 compatible card. I haven't seen any of these cards in action but I guess the GeForce 8600GT/GTS will be good for your system. I don't know if those cards come in AGP though so be carefull while choosing. Does your mobo has any PCI-X slots?

Keep in mind that you may need to upgrade your Power Supply Unit along with the new card.

I can't afford a new PC, my specs are attached with the DxDiag, and I generally play older games like Dungeon Keeper II, Black & White, Majesty, any older RTS, I-War 1 & 2, etc. I love these games, but everytime I install a new DX runtime, one of them suffers a new problem, be it freezing, or unplayable framerates, etcetera. Moving from DX7 alone has cost me B&W and numerous games developed in that time frame, like Ground Control. DX9 made a lot of those games playable, but the framerates were still much lower than they used to be. I'm afraid to install a new DX runtime until I can get some good advice on this. Please, if anyone could simulate my PC's statistics on their PC or has a similar system, could you tell me how it fares with these games?

I had similar problems, but with the X-Fi Titanium. I got the 5.1 working by uninstalling all Creative software, uninstalling the driver, and restarting the computer normally, allowing windows to automatically install the latest driver.

Then the 5.1 works...until you restart the computer. Then it's back to 2.1!!!

My system has 64 bit capabilities (except for the ram which I'd be willing to upgrade) but I'm running in Vista Home Premium 32 bit. I've run many games on it and many, in fact most, run flawlessly. 32 bit itself is working out but for the purpose of getting the most out of my system, I am considering upgrading to Vista Home Premium 64 bit. Would this inhibit any of my 32 bit games? Can 64 bit emulate 32 bit drivers well? Should I just stick with my 32 bit Vista for my 64 bit apps?

A:I'm a gamer considering upgrading vista HoPr 32x to 64x.

It all depends on the games you play? Since SP1, most games run just fine; however, every now and then you'll find one that just doesn't get along with 64-bit Vista and you have to jump through a hoop or two to get it to run. Rarely though does a game "just not work".

I will say that 64-bit Vista blew me away as far as gaming goes. Doing a direct comparison with Vista 64-bit, Vista 32-bit and XP SP2, 64-bit ran everything so smoothly it made it seem as if I had a newer graphics card. Of course, 4GB's of RAM helps a lot, but still, modern games just spank.

I just upgraded to windows 7 from XP. Everything went fine for a couple of days when my graphics card went dead (XFX 7900GS). I switched cards with my son (9500 GT) and sundenly my CPU is pinned at 100%. After lots of research and dissabling just about everything in BIOS and starting in Safe Mode...nothing...still pinned at 100% I downloaded creative labs and XFX windows 7 drivers...no help! Finally I removed the sound card and all problems solved-except now Im using onboard sound. Do I have an issue with sound card compatability issues with windows 7 or the graphics card (XFX 9500 GT) as everything worked fine with the 7900GS for a few days.

Hello.
I want to upgrade my soundcard Creative SB X-FI Xtreme Gamer and i don't if it's worth.
For now i use my headphones Sennheiser 429 HD + Logitech 5.1 x530 but soon i'll have Behringer MS40 instead Logitech 5.1 x530
What would you advice me ? Should i go for Asus Xonar ? Should i go again for some better Creative soundcard ?
I do hear music as well, gaming and movies.
Any ideas / suggestions are welcome.
Thanks in advance

A:Creative SB X-FI Xtreme Gamer / upgrade

Upgrading and whether its worth it is very subjective. Depends on your specific case and if you think you need it.

I have a recording studio (using Sonar X2) and very attuned to sound and use high end studio monitors, but for my own PC use the RealTek built in sound card is acceptable to me.

The Xonar's are popular. There is another sound card company that uses the same chip as the Asus, HT Omega, you may want to check them out. I used one of their cards in an older PC, to replace a SoundBlaster and was very happy with it. HT Omega - The Next Generation in Audio.

I love playing computer games, and recently got the original Diablo. I installed it, and it wouldn't play right, so I tweaked the display settings so the game would come in clear. Well since I have done that every time I try playing a game my system crashes. I mean it completely shuts off. I am not at all dumb, but I do not know that much about computers(other than I love playing games on it, lol). I did uninstall a bunch of games thinking maybe my memory was full, but it didn't help.
I have an XP, Hp Pentium a1220n. If that helps. Is anyone willing to help me fix this? Iwould be very greatful! I am very good at following directions if anyone wants to know anything.
 

A:New gamer girl... who's system keeps crashing! :'(

That is a HP Pavilion a1220n. When you tweaked the video settings, you probably stressed your already weak video. You are using on-board video. You will need to install a good add-on video card so you can continue to love playing video games. You may also benefit from adding a better, stronger power supply too

Have you got DHCP enabled on the router? I can't imagine a router coming with it disabled but I haven't used d-link. I'm a netgear person.

so i just got this new sound card. i installed it and disabled the integrated hd sound in the bios. my computer says the sound is working on the icon on the bottom left but the sound isn't actually playing on my speakers. please help

A:creative xtreme gamer problems

did you replug your cables? (unplug em from your motherboard's audio jacks and plugged em into your soundcard's audio jacks)

if you are using a frontpannel I/O module, did you remember to rewire the (internal) cables from your motherboard's connector(s) onto your soundcard's connectors?

Disabling your HD sound in bios doesn't necessary make it so your soundcard will work.
Check windows device manager and see what shows up there.
If you disabled your integrated HD sound in bios it should not show up in that list anymore. Check if your soundcard shows up and wether it shows as enabled/installed etc.

Did you install the drivers from the cd?

Beyond knowing it is a gaming machine I know nothing about an XBox--never set one up or even watched anyone use one I installed this router a few days ago and now users are complaining that when their son gets on his XBox quot the network stops working quot I installed the router on the third floor of the house and the XBox is on the first floor There are three wireless computers and no wired computers on the network I placed a laptop next to the Non-gamer wireless help XBox needs hardware understanding XBox for a test and it shows a four-bar out of five signal I guess what I need first is a better understanding of XBox hardware so I can match a router to the XBox s Non-gamer needs help understanding XBox wireless hardware capabilities or wireless specifications because it might be the one I installed doesn t have the right specifications Does the XBox have its own in-built wireless or is wireless a user add-on If it has its own in-built wireless what type is it If it has its own in-built Non-gamer needs help understanding XBox wireless hardware wireless should it be disregarded in favor of a user added external wireless adapter that would perform better XBox product ID if that helps Their broadband is DSL from AT amp T with a Westel Wirespeed modem nbsp

I use a Saitek Pro Gamer Command Unit for Games and some editing with various
programs, the Command Unit worked on all games and programs running Windows 7.
I have installed Windows 8 and in the properties all is fine and buttons working.
Problem is that no games or programs are recognizing that it is there.
The drivers are up to date. so what needs to be done or changed ??
Also tried to see if it would type on notepad. It will not.
Properties and profiler show that it is working.

A:Gamer, wireless network drops me out constantly.

I don't know much at all about networks, so I can't help there, but...

about the DVDROM I believe it is coincidence, but you may wann check once more that all the connections are tight on the DVDROM.
