Preferred Solution: Is the CPU good on this computer for gaming?

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.)

A: Is the CPU good on this computer for gaming?

I'd say it's a good CPU, but note that you won't be able to upgrade it in the future as it is soldered onto the motherboard.

Hi, well I'm looking to get a new computer. I was wondering if this is a good computer for gaming, but mostly if it will give me good results in CSS (on the default settings without adding any of the extra components):

According to my parents, it's that or nothing. I can't pay for it because I'm broke, lol. So would it be good for gaming (mostly CSS)?

Just built a gaming system using the same CoolerMaster HAF-932. What a great case to work with and in!

If you can wait, Intel is about to release their newest cpu offerings "Sandy Bridge." Then make your choice and you may get some the parts you list a little less expensive. But, yes, that system you're putting together is very powerful.

However, have you considered the Radeon latest offerings?

Welcome to TSG,

What is your actual budget and what games do you wish to play? What kind of settings do you wish to play those at? Low, medium, high, ultra/max? What monitor will you be using with it?

The first link goes to a computer that most people wouldn't consider a gaming since it has a pretty low end Radeon HD 6450 that simply can't handle most modern games.

The second link goes to a website that lists several PC's.

Do you think it could handle these games? Not on all highest settings but at least Moderate for most of them, low to Medium for Skyrim.

P.S I'm on a budget so please don't make me feel too bad about this new computer


A:Is this computer any good for gaming?

Which video card are you opting to get with it? The default Intel HD 2500 integrated graphics are not likely sufficient for Skyrim beyond low settings, and may even struggle with that.

Any of the other cards, non of which are considered a gaming graphics card and are odd-ball custom OEM cards designed for the weak power supply in the computer, would likely give you the low to medium for Skyrim.

All the rest of games are less demanding.

A:A good gaming computer

That is a good place to have a computer built as far as specs go there is no computer specs that have to be met, a good PSU is good in any machine, a reasonable mobo is needed in any machine. I prefer ASUS but they will be the highest if top of the line. if u are going to overclock make sure it is over clockable and make sure the processor is over
clockcable and yes they both have the ability, although the board will just put the # down. any video card will play games, but the newer ones should give u more frames, and last longer. as far as the processor AMD or Intel will be fine. and that site will e-mail u if the MOBO and processor will not work together.

I found this computer online at tiger direct

I was wondering if this would be a decent gaming computer. I looked around on the net a lot and most suggestions I find are only for the newest most banging computers, but I am on a bit of a budget, which attracted me to this one in the first place.

Should I be worried about the fact that this is refurbished? Again I googled Gateway computers and got a lot of stories of their computers going man down just after the warranty expires, and the fact this only has 3 months on it kinda worries me, but it does seem like a decent computer.

Anyways thanks in advance for any help, it will be much appreciated.

A:will these components be good for a gaming-ish computer ?

Those should be fine for gaming. However, for your CPU I would change to a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane. That CPU is faster dispite the slower clock speed. Not to mention it overclocks better and and runs cooler. And if possible upgrade to the eVGA e-GeForce 7900 GS KO 256MB.

Another note: Don't use the power supply that comes with that case, buy one seperate.

Hello everyone I am graduating with my B S this Friday and my parents asked me what I wanted for a graduation present and jokingly I said a new computer and they went for it So now I m in a pickle of sorts cause I do want one The one I am using now is about years old it is running ok but obviously is becoming quite inferior This computer was custom built with my friend s help so was pretty good at the time it was made Now I am about to engage heavily into computer gaming with SW The Old Republic coming out and will probably also play Diablo when that is released so I am hoping to get a computer which can handle these games on the highest settings That being said however my dad is pretty firm about getting a computer from Best Buy or some type of retail seller IIRC this is frowned upon by most computer experts or at least for those who build their own Can I get your advice as to good models for the kind of gaming I will be doing Or at least the minimum specs I should be looking at or things brands to avoid when picking one out I was really hoping Specs retail computer? gaming for good a to get something relatively top-of-the-line but I don t think the budget could exceed K nbsp

A:Specs for a good gaming retail computer?

Best Buy do sell computer components so you're not limited to buying a prebuilt (ugh).

No Best Buy in my country, but a quick look at the site shows you can build a pretty good system for that budget. Bear in mind you could save around $500-600 by going with a more basic setup:
Intel 2500K CPU+ Gigabyte Z68 motherboard + 8GB RAM $649
Power supply: Corsair TX650M $100
Windows 7 x64 Home Premium (OEM) $110
Chassis : Corsair Carbide 500R $122. You can save ~$40-60 by going with a more basic case.
Hard drive: WD Cav Black 1TB $150 (Prices are obscenely high at the moment)
HP DVD rewriter $30
Basic component cost (so far) : $1141
Graphics card. If you aren't planning on upgrading again in the short/medium term, then I'd suggest spending enough to see you through the current and upcoming game releases.
XFX HD 6950 1GB $243.

Monitor...Your choices are a cheaper TN+film panel, or a more expensive IPS panel which offers better color range (gamut) but may have higher latency (detectable ghosting with fast motion).
HP's 2511x (25", 1980x1080) is a very nice TN based LED panel ($230) or
HP's ZR24W (24", 1980x1200) is a very nice IPS based panel ($405)

Total: $1634 or $1809

Peripherals, if you don't already have them:
Mouse : Razer DeathAdder 3500 ($60) -Highly recommended. I use one myself- very nice ergonomics and fully featured.
Keyboard: Razer Arctosa ($50)
Mouse pad : Razer gaming pad ($15)
CPU cooler...
If you are planning on NOT overclocking then the boxed Intel heatsink will work fine...However, if you are planning an overclocking adventure (the 2500K is usually good for 4.7+ GHz in daily operation) then I'd suggest an aftermarket cooler:
A mild or medium overclock - mid-priced air cooler such as the Corsair A70 ($38), a medium-high (say 4-4.3GHz) oc needs a good air cooler such as the CoolerMaster V6GT ($51), while a 4.6 or more I'd recommend either a very good air cooler (none on the Best Buy site that I could find), or the Corsair H100 all-in-one water cooler ($110).

You'll need to make some compromises along the way- especially if you are paying for someone (Geek Squad) to put the system together - wasted money IMO. There's enough online help and guides to allow you to put the system together easily- although your father might have other ideas on the subject. Decide what you need, and what you don't, and whether you would be happy with a gaming orientated TN monitor, or would prefer the better colour reproduction that the IPS provides. Your best bet here would be to see both types in the flesh- so a reconaissance to your local computer shop could well be in order.
Juggling the options around should keep you within budget. If you need/want a speaker sytem, gaming headset, webcam etc. you will need to make further compromises...or add some funds towards your folks nice offer.

Good luck.

I was wondering is 5ms response time good enough for FPS Gaming like COD: Black Ops, BFBC2 etc etc etc?I have been ordered this Asus monitor.
Or do you really need the 2ms version of Monitors? Is the performance worth the extra cost
Coz It costs a bomb here in my country to get a 2ms monitor compared to 5ms (both same screen size, Full HD resolution).
I wouldn't mind if the difference is too little to actually bothers me.

A:Is 5ms good enough for Gaming?

2ms is better,but 5ms is plenty fast enough.
That's the response rate on mine and I don't see any video problems.

An idea

If you go to ebuyer/newegg/scan or any major hardware you can price up all of the parts individually. Then you could see the total and you would know if you are getting a bargain or not.

From the spec I would think that you would have a great time with gaming on that rig.

A:Would this be good for gaming?

Laptops in general are not designed for gaming, and your ATI Mobility Radeon 4200 is probably only designed for some HD video and very light gaming. I've never heard of Dragonica Online, but I assume it's just a MMORPG and doesn't sound like a very demanding game, so you may want to check your internet connection/wireless card to see if that's causing the lag.

Motherboard: ASRock 990FX Extreme3

Graphic card: Asus GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5
PSU: XFX TS Series 550W

I'll have to pay around 873 euros for this PC. This includes Windows 7, 1 year warranty, anti virus (Bullguard Anti Virus), and a Sharkoon gaming set (keyboard and mouse).

Is this worth it? Can I play games like League of Legends with no lag? Is it a good pc for its price?? Any advice is much appreciated since I don't have that much knowledge on PCs. I thank you in advance for helping me!

A:Will this be a good gaming PC?

Well that price translates to about 1200 US dollars. IMO you can build a much better pc for that price. I would check out TS's PC buying guide. Their enthusiast level machine seems like a much better deal than the one you posted. Check it out here:

Minus the sound card and maybe a cheaper case it is about the same price as the one you posted.

I have a intel Q9505 CPU on a Intel mobo with 4gb mem (I will upgrade to 8Gb mem). I was wondering if I can just get a good video card for gaming or do you guys suggest a total new PC?

A:Good enough for gaming?

LGA775 is dying but if you are strapped for cash, spending $160-200 (assuming your PSU is adequate) on a card would keep you going awhile. To give you a performance reference, the Core2 Quad performs on par with the current i3's. If current gaming benchmark's of the i3 is satisfactory, then you are good for awhile. If you think you need i5 or better performance, then a new system would be recommended.

If you look at my sig, is this PC good for gaming? Because I have been having a hard time with certain games. Doom 3 works well for the most part but will lag up during combat when there is a lot of shadowing and dynamic lighting going on. As well as post processing effects like bluring and such. Now Far Cry seems to be slow ALL the TIME. Half Life 2 on the other hand works like a charm with everything turned ALL the way up. I am thinking that it might be my Video Card causing me all this grief cause the rest of my specs always seem to fall well within the recomended specs for each game. Can anyone suggest any changes to my System to improve performance for games.

Historically a message in a bottle is a form of communication whereby a message is sealed in a container (archetypically a glass bottle, but could be any medium, so long as it floats and remains waterproof) and released into the sea or ocean. The phrase "message in a bottle" literally comes from the practice of placing an important but untargeted letter inside a (usually) glass bottle, sealing it, and allowing ocean currents to carry it away. There are indications that ancient Greek scientists used the message in a bottle to study the general flow of oceans and early militaries also used bottles to relay messages to distant troops, although this method did have a few tactical drawbacks.

A:Is This PSU good enough for a gaming rig?

The PSU needs to be mounted so that the fan is underneath and not on top. That way, it pulls the warm air from within the case and vents it away from your system through the PSU, with the air exiting your system through the grid of holes on its rear panel.

Decent, 9500 GT is a bit weak for modern gaming though. Also, the 400W power supply has to be of high quality to really be enough for that. Corsair, OCZ, Enermax, Seasonic, Silverstone, PC Power & cooling...

With regards to the graphics card, you may want to wait a few months for the Radeon 5xxx series, they should be cheaper per performance, more energy efficient, and will have DX 11 capability...

A:Good Gaming Laptop?

What does your RAM look like? You should atleast have a 2GB of it. I have four and I havent run into any problems. Only thing i suggest you look into is having 32 bit vista. I run on a 64 bit like you want and I run into problems with installing games using this version of Vista. Although 64Bit may be better, there seems to be less bugs with the 32

ok, i am wondering (as above) if the Radion X1950 pro is good for gaming, my friend recently had this computer built (from someone else's recommendation) its a very nice computer, core 2 quad, 4gb ram ect ect, now when my friend went to the store to get these parts the guy at the counter said he didnt have the top-of-the-line card recommended (not too sure what was the recommended prob. something like the 8800) and he said the X1950 would be fine, just out of curiostiy, is this a good card for gaming? hoping to play some top games out there...

I am looking at upgrading my router from the Linksys WRT54G Wireless G Router. I need some thing that can give me the full speed of my internet, I do a lot of gaming so I would need some thing that will give me a good connection and good speed for gaming. I am looking at this router D-Link Xtreme Wireless N Router (DIR-655), D-Link Xtreme Wireless N Router (DIR-655) : Wireless N Routers - Best Buy Canada
Would this Router be good for gaming and also to have a couple of computers attached as well?


A:What is a good gaming router?!?!?!?!

The Linksys WRT54G's are extremely popular on the web. In fact, it's exactly what I use.

When you say you need something that can give you the full speed of your Internet, how fast is your internet connection? Mine gives me 15Mbps download speeds and my router supports 54Mbps...which is 3x faster than my Internet can even go. Even with some distance from my router to my wireless devices, the router itself is not my bottleneck.

i am buying a new computer that doesnt come with a moniter. can anyone suggest a good moniter for gaming(no lcd) or just a good overall moniter.

A:good moniter for gaming

I have an NEC AccuSync AS70 17". That's a real good price too. Image & text quality are stunning. I would think any good quality 17 or 19" will be fine. With the LCD's getting lower & lower in cost, the CRT's are getting quite cheap.

P chipset based mobo because I don t trust Is this a good gaming system? NVIDIA on chipsets and it s not a X because I don t plan to use CrossFire - has hardware RAID Speeding HDD - performs fine in reviews - I trust ASUS as a brand CPU - fastest Core Duo - I plan to overclock it and would like not to increase the voltage from the reviews I read this processor is the most stable with this kind of overclocking probably brought by the new E stepping Video card - needed a bad video card because I want to play all the games maxed out at x - the only thing better than this but only slightly and not in all games is GTX and that s at least EUROs more It s a no-brainer who provides better value here RAM - x GB seems the best enough for now will use Vista or XP bit editions - I trust the brand - it s on ASUS Qualified Vendor List which means it has been tested with the motherboard so I won t have problems HDD - pieces of the fastest hard-drive available - will use RAID - solid state hard drives are just too expensive now perhaps in a few years PSU - has enough juice including amps - respected brand - performs ok in reviews - it s very quiet Case - looks cool - it s quiet - it has water cooling and I want that but I am not ready to make case modifications I m sure that if I were to cut the case myself it would look horrible DVD RW - from the reviews it seems ok - has LightScribe which might come in handy Mouse - it s wired had some bad experiences with gaming using wireless mice - can change DPI on-the-fly while you are in the game - it s lighter than G I don t like brick mice - heavy and big Display - I like x - it performs ok in the reviews - has HDMI - looks nice - has TN panel which means it s cheap and it doesn t have noticeable input lag I don t mind viewing angles I will be gaming right in front of it The video card will probably be the most noisy component and I will probably buy a water block as soon as I know there is no fabrication problem with it I heard that mounting a water block voids the warranty so I want first to make sure I won t return it What do you think Will I have any incompatibilities Known issues with any component Are my choices correct P S Sorry for the huge post Thank you nbsp

A:Is this a good gaming system?

Since you're already spending so much (and can afford spending more) and assuming you want the system to last a while down the road, get a 45nm quad-core CPU like the Q9450.

Also, the Maximus II Formula is a Crossfire board. Get the GA-EP45-DS3L instead IMO. Gigabyte's build quality is better than ASUS from what I've seen and Gigabyte's boards are less fussier about RAM than ASUS'. That being said, I have an ASUS P5E3 and it's been rock-solid so far, but I paid a lot of money for it (since I wanted 1600MHz DDR3 RAM to match my CPU's FSB) and I suspect that is why I have yet to suffer any major problems.

As for your case, get a big one with lots of room like the Cooler Master Stacker 832. I have one and it is HUGE! It has a lot of room for a water cooling setup, as well as a very robust air-cooling system.

Lastly, don't cheap out on the PSU. The Zalman is good, but an 850W PSU with only 60A on the +12V rail isn't really that great. I'd recommend the superior PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 or the Corsair TX750W. Also, keep in mind that you don't really need such a powerful PSU and that a good-quality 650W PSU such as the Corsair TX650W or the Antec NeoPower 650W will be enough, since you don't plan on having a dual-card setup.

I recently bought Team Fortress 2, and have had some trouble playing it. It will usually just freeze and crash whenever I try to play. Since the rest of my computer meets it's requirements, I assume that it is my integrated graphics card which is causing problems. A few years ago, my brother tried to purchase a new graphics card for Oblivion. He apparently had done the research, but when the card came, it didn't fit in our PCI slot. I am just looking a for an up-to-date gaming graphics card that will fit my slot.

P.S.-I found i random phone-jack card that fits in one of my PCI slots. The part of the card which you plug in (don't know the term) looks very similar to the plug on this card -

Let me know whether that card will work in my computer or not.

A:Looking for a good PCI card for gaming

That Powercolor card is a PCI card and should fit any PCI slot whether yours or your brother's. I can't account for it not physically fitting into your brother's PCI slot unless you were mistakenly trying to fit it into an AGP or PCI-E slot instead.

Go to this link and see the laptop

A:Is This A Good Gaming Laptop ???

the page is not responding - I think you will find laptops still do not play games very well - unless you pay a lot for the device - very few have a true seperate graphics card - you will need to look at the spec very carefully

my HP laptop DV5094 does have a seperate 128MB graphics card - but never played games on it.

A:Is this a good gaming desktop?

Good for running most games on medium-high settings. Not suited to hardcore gaming IMO. You should get the E7200 instead of your current CPU and invest more money in a better GPU, like the HD 4850, since that will affect game performance far more than the CPU.

Can you post the links to the parts, if applicable?

I'm thinking of buying a laptop, and it seems that those in reach of my modest budget are only equipped with built in videocards(usually Intel - GMA something). Are they any good for 3d gaming? I'm not really looking for something that will run Crysis or Oblivion, rather some of the older games like Sacred, and maybe Quake III or Warcraft III.

A:Intel GMA: Any good for gaming?

For old games like those, the new GMA onboard video cards should be fine.

The topic says it all. I want a very GOOD gaming headset with a microphone. I have the Sennheiser HD555's and they're the best headphones ever. But, there isn't a microphone attached to the headset. I don't feel like buying a mic stand because it's annoying to lean forward to talk. I play a lot of first person shooters. Remember, a good headset that can remind me of how much I spent on my SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatality card.

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.
