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.)

You should start your own thread next time with the question instead but its decent depending on what your wanting. I am also a bit confused by your wording in spots because it sounds a bit weird.

Are you just gaming on this machine or do you have other ideas in mind?

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.

Grand theft auto IV

And a lot of games like that to medium-high-max settings.

A:Is this a good gaming pc build?

Lets start with: What is your overall budget for this build? We might be able to build something better depending on how much you have.
Going with what you currently have listed I would suggest only minor changes to include:
The motherboard is a Dual Channel RAM setup - So you need to find RAM that comes as a pair (2x4GB instead of 1x8GB) for better efficiency.
I would also suggest getting a PSU (power supply) that is from a better known manufacture. Yes the one you selected will work, but the lesser brand ones have the tendency to fail more often (and the one you selected does not have too many good reviews).

Can I build a good Gaming PC for around $1,500? (Including a $600 Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTX Video Card)
 

A:Can I build a good Gaming PC for around $1,500?

Depends on the games you want to play. 1k-1.5k should buy you everything you need to run 95% of games flawlessly.

I read someone say earlier that radeon is coming out with a cheaper version of the 8800 pretty soon, you sure you want to blow the cash on an 8800?

I am new to gaming computers so be patient with me haha. I am wanting to build the best gaming computer possible for around 900 dollars (do not care about blueray and all that crap, all I care about is pure performance for gaming) I also would like to exclude the OS, keyboard and mouse. I just want to have a custom built machine that would last at least 2 years, if not more. Right now I am gaming with a Dell Inspiron 1545 so you can imagine my frustration lol. I am going to attempt to build this computer myself, I just have no idea what would be the best bang for the buck. Again I am new to all this so just try to be understanding
Thank you!

Since you already ordered the parts, it does little good now to ask if they are going to work well together.

Your parts selection is low to mid range at best. The mb is not a performance board. Gigabyte makes
fine boards however this is one of their mid-level ie NOT performance boards.
Hard drive. Again WD makes fine drives however NOT the blue series. Only the black series [or preferably a ssd] for a gaming system.
Pw supply. Again corsair makes some fine pw supplies however the one you selected is NOT one of them. For a gaming system only the HX, TX, or AX line.
In short the parts you have selected are fine for an office system ie running office, email, etc. They are NOT fine for a gaming machine and you most likely will be disappointed in their performance or longevity.

Hello everyone, I'm interested in building a gaming PC from scratch and really have no idea where to start. I've never built a computer before and the whole process is pretty intimidating to me. I'd also like to keep it fairly cheap. My budget is about $700. I don't need something top of the line, just something that can play games at decent settings. I'd like to use Windows 7 as the OS and I want to play games like Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Garry's Mod, etc. If you guys could recommend parts or even recommend an entire build that would be great. Let me know what you think, thanks.

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

A:First Gaming Build Help

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.

Everything looks good, but if I were you, I would go with an AMD capable motherboard and processor. Intel i7's are great little processors, but AMD has been coming out with some processors that oust them completely. Especially if you are looking for a great gaming rig. That or maybe spend 1000 bucks and go for an Intel Extreme

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!

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
DVD: ASUS DRW 24B1LT

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
 

A:Which of these HDD's is best for my gaming build?

The best to get would be a 1TB Samsung SpinPoint F3, if you can get one in NZ?

Okay, I really want to build a gaming PC.
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START.
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 earlier....today's Cyber Monday.. I NEED TO SQUEEZE IN SOME PURCHASES!

Thanks!! Please help me out

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.

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?

A:Gaming PC build-up

With that much going on and if you play on eventually upgrading, I'd suggest 800+ Watts PSU and for the PCU cooler a Tuniq tower could be nice.

When it comes down to mobo you should know EXACTLY what you need for you to choose the right one.

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.





Qlcool said:

I'm assuming you mean PCIe 3.0, PCI is an older card slot design.

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.

also idk about the cooling should I get liquid cooling or ? I'm also planning to overclock my CPU when I get the second graphic card....Click to expand...

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.

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.....

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?

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.

A:Pc good for gaming?

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...

Also soes it seem like an ok PSU for price. Thanks for any help you can give.

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.

A:Is this a good PC for gaming?

An idea

If you go to ebuyer/newegg/scan or any major hardware etailor.com 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.

Ciao!

I don't know much about gaming PC's as I am primarily a console gamer. But I'm looking to get into the PC gaming scene and most likely switch from being primarily a console gamer to being primarily a PC gamer. So of course I am looking to purchase a gaming PC. I have found one but I'm not sure of how good it is so could someone please tell me if this is a good PC for gaming, core components are;

Processor (CPU): Intel® Core? i3-2100 Dual Core (3.10 GHz, 3MB cache) + HD Graphics
Motherboard: ASUS P8H67-M LX SI
Memory (RAM): 4GB SAMSUNG DDR3 DUAL-DDR3 1333MHz (2 X 2GB)
Graphics Card: 1GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 440 - DVI, VGA, HDMI

Any opinions are appreciated, and don't hesitate to ask for extra information!

Hi,

I'm looking for a decent monitor for playing PC games. Unfortunately the budget for it is no more than $250. I realize I'm going to have to make compromises. But was curious to see what you would recommend?

Thanks for all your help!

Since it sounds like you want a different case anyway, I'd just go ahead and build my own, if I were you. You'll save money and be able to choose exactly what components you want.

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.

Hello!

I want to buy a new gaming PC, and I was looking around for something good. Someone recommended me this build:

Motherboard: ASRock 990FX Extreme3
Fan: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003
Graphic card: Asus GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5
PSU: XFX TS Series 550W
HDD: Corsair Vengeance - DDR3
Processor: AMD Black Edition - AMD FX 6350

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: http://www.techspot.com/guides/buying/page4.html

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

Cheers

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.

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. For more information please visit www.messagebybottle.com.
Thanks a lot.

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.

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:New gaming Rig is t a good one?

Good swap on those components - put the money where the gaming performance is.

Also consider the 10% OC option for only $19 unless you plan to OC yourself - a cheap upgrade, although it may affect other choices.

The CoolerMaster HAF 912CoolerMaster HAF 912 is reported to run hot. You might want to consider another case. Or at least go for the case fan upgrade for $9 if it has places for more fans.

Under Optical Drive you have not checked the free upgrade to the ASUS Blu-Ray reader DVDRW combo drive

No operating system checked. Are you going to install some software you already have?

Looks like you will have a nice gaming system.

A:First build, cheap gaming for my son

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.

A:Computer build for gaming

The biggest problem I see here is your motherboard choice. I think you should get a much less expensive motherboard, as you are not likely to use enough of its features to justify that enormous price-tag.(I wouldn't dream of spending nearly 3 times as much on my motherboard than my CPU). Something like THIS or THIS is much more reasonable. I would put that extra money towards buying a better CPU.

Although I don't mind you going with AMD, I would like to know why you elected to go with them.

I would swap that power supply out for a better one. I've heard some bad Rosewill stories in the past, and although they're better now, I still wouldn't trust them to power my rig. Go with something from Seasonic, XFX or Corsair. You could probably safely downgrade to 650W as well, unless you plan to SLI in the future.

The 660 Ti is a good choice, and so is EVGA. However, you might want to consider a HD 7950, which gives generally better performance for around the same price. Plus, AMD is giving out free games with the 7900 series, so I'd choose it over the 660 Ti.

I'd also go with the newer Hyper 212 EVO over the Hyper 212 PLUS.

Hello everyone i have been playing games on my laptop and its just My first for gaming build computer not good enough at all anymore I have always wanted a nice gaming computer I have recently been trying to learn about it all and build my own gaming computer to save some money I did have a plan that My first computer build for gaming was including the i intel GPU but after learning a little more i am kinda leaning towards AMD x Since i mostly plan to play games on it i read that AMD is good for gaming and it could save me money some use of other things maybe college work but i also got this laptop so mostly strictly gaming maybe So now im confused and starting over trying to think what to combine for good rig I want a rig that can be very fast and handle games with graphics all the way up right now graphics at minimal low and still laggin especially starcraft and to handle furture games like possibly the new mmo blizzard will release My first computer build for gaming in the next years or whatever So with all that said I came across the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula ATX Motherboard MHz Socket AM I thought this would be a good start I was going to use corsair memory but now idk if it will go with ASUS since it says to go with intel junts So idk about that for one and im just getting frustrated trying to study for this lol I am trying to come on with a good build idea so what would be best with this mobo for jaw dropping graphics i want I dont want an expensive rig over is getting way too much but i dont have to buy it all now meaning i could spend close up to at the end of this project maybe i was definetly wanting AMD x and was thinking the AMD - Black Edition Phenom II X Processor T but do i need that could i get another X I was looking at the radeon graphic cards but not sure which one to get Doesnt have to be radeon tho SO if anyone is an expert or any experience could help me out i would greatly appeciate it I am completely new to all this so plz explain anything to me as to why i should get a certain part rather than other parts If i should get a different mobo and AMD or go back to the intel i idea then tell me i dont mind if i can save more money and have the gaming experience i want thats great i could put future money into sound and great monitor and such Or if there is a good gaming computer to just buy that has what i want for the good price THanks for the help and sorry for such a looooong post but i felt i needed to get most of my thoughts down so that you could understand what it is im looking for BTW i do not plan to overclock i don t want to ruin anything i put so much money into and feel i don t need to overclock intil maybe in the distant future and i know more about how to do all that safely Also i was looking at the PSI cyclone case cuz it looked awesome tell me ur ideas on that to and if i should get that or get sumthin more durable nbsp

A:My first computer build for gaming

My first suggestion is that you need a TL; DR.

I read some (IMO) poor choices, and I also happened to notice that you say that you're pretty clueless.
Therefore I went over your plans briskly.

So lets get started, first thing we need to know is a budget, and what that'll include, i.e. will that include a monitor? Mouse? Keyboard? OS? ect...
