Give me a specs of a high end gaming PC. Please =)? I'm planning to buy a PC Desktop but have no idea when it comes to specifications, I will be using it for gaming.
Which System is better? Xbox 360 or PS3? So i am finally getting a game system. I used to be a hardcore gamer on PC gaming. Main reason im switching to Console gaming is all my friends play Console online. about 50% of my friends have the Xbox 360, while the other 50% have the PS3. Also good to mention that money for online, console, etc. is no issue to me. Exclusive games for the 360 like Halo and Gears of war series do not appeal to me (don't know about the PS3). I Like both controllers for both systems, and don't really care About Bluray for the PS3. Ill be playing Mostly FPS games like Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Black Ops, Bad company 2, etc. I am just wondering what system is best online and best for generally really any game, specifically First person Shooter Games. Please let me know, Thanks.

Trying to find a game for my sister!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? My sister likes club penguin and she plays it with her friends. The only problem is you cannot buy clothes or anything on there without membership and she cannot get membership. She has a Webkinz but likes other games. She cannot play Runescape or any other type game like that. I was wondering maybe if there were some other kid games where you can buy clothes and cool stuff for your guy/girl, without paying for membership. So if there are that you know of, please post it here. NO RUNESCAPE, HABBO HOTEL, ANY PET GAMES. I JUST WANT A GAME WHERE YOU HAVE A PERSON AND YOU CAN DRESS THAT PERSON UP, BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE COINS OR SOMETHING. I DO NOT MIND IF THERE IS FREE/MEMBER CLOTHES AS LONG AS THERE IT IS FREE AND YOU CAN BUY STUFF.

Questions about gaming rig purchase? (computer)? Ok, this January I'm going to be spending around $900 for a new computer, mainly for basic internet browsing and a lot of games. I've picked out a few selected items, which I'll list here shortly. Basically what I am asking is, is this rig worth the price? Should I change anything to handle the high visual settings on most games? Specs: -Case ( Nzxt Lexa Blackline Gaming Tower Case w/420W Power Supply Black ) -Power Supply ( Standard Case Power Supply ) -Processor ( AMD Athlon™ X2 6000+ Dual-Core CPU w/ HyperTransport Technology ) -Processor Cooling ( [=== Quiet ===] AVC Silent AMD CPU Fan and Heatsink Quiet & Overclocking Proof ) Motherboard ( [CrossFire] MSI K9A2 Platinum AMD 790FX -CrossFire Chipset w/7.1 Sound, Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, Quad PCI-E MB ) -Memory ( 4 GB [1 GB X4] DDR2-800 PC6400 Memory Module Corsair-Value or Major Brand ) -Video Card ( NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT 512MB w/DVI + TV Out Video ) -Hard Drive ( 320 GB HARD DRIVE [Serial-ATA-II, 3Gb, 7200 RPM, 16M Cache] ) -CD-RW/DVD-RW Drive -Sound Card ( 3D Premium Surround Sound Onboard ) -Network Card ( Onboard LAN Network (Gb or 10/100) ) -USB 2.0 Accessories ( Built-in USB 2.0 Ports ) -Flash Media Reader/Writer ( 12-In-1 Internal Flash Media Card Reader/Writer Black ) -Operation System ( Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium + [Free 60-Day !!!] Microsoft Office 2007(Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Access ....) 64-Bit ) ----------- Is this going to run as I'm hoping? Any suggestions on changes? My main goal is to run just about any game on any graphic settings with very little to no lag what-so-ever. What's the difference between Microsoft Windows Vista 32bit and 64bit? Should I run one great video card or two lesser ones equal to the power? Please let me know what you think, and what some problems might arise with this setup as well as what I could change to prevent those. Thanks for your time!! It's greatly appreciated! Thanks PCGiant So, I should go with the 64mbit vista OS for the full potential?

Also, I figured the motherboard had something to do with performance (I'm not the biggest computer wiz out there.. . mainly unaware on some of the hardware and it's purpose. Are you basically saying that the motherboard that I have chosen is good for basic graphics etc? but it's pointless to spend money on it if I'm getting a better video card?

xbox 360 vs PS3 vs PC? my birthday is coming up and I really like video games. I don't know what to get. I used to have an xbox but I had to get rid of it so if I buy an xbox again I would have a couple of games but I would have to buy Live, I could buy a PS3 but I dont have any games so I would have to put it some money for games. also I don't have a good tv, infact the only hd tv is in the living room but I' not allowed to play on that TV so I'm stuck with an old tv. I could also buy a PC, it wouldn't be a 2,000 dollar computer, it would be a basic PC that runs most games on medium quality, but again I dont have an HD monitor so I would be stuck with an average monitor (it's not too old), also I would have to buy games for the PC but most of the pc games are cheaper than the console version of the same game. but steam offers demos. what do you recommend? also, there's alot of f2p games on the pc but i have to upgrade it every couple of years so i dont know if I should. it would be a custom pc with these specs most likely * CPU: AMD Athlon™II X2 255 Dual-Core CPU w/ HyperTransport Technology [+6] * HDD: 500GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Hard Drive) * MEMORY: 4GB (2GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory Module (Corsair or Major Brand) * MOTHERBOARD: Asus M4A78LT-M LE AM3 DDR3 AMD 760G/SB710 Chipset DDR3 mATX w/ Integrated ATI Radeon 3000, 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, USB2.0, SATA-II RAID, 1 Gen2 PCIe, 1 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI * SOUND: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO * VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 1GB 16X PCI Express [+44] (Major Brand Powered by NVIDIA)
laptop speakers too quiet? So I am having a reoccurring problem with my laptop speakers. Some programs I have to turn it up to 85 or 90 and can still barely hear it. I thought it was just a youtube program thing since some videos were fine and others werent now I think its a laptop thing since itunes now does it once in a while. The volume is up all the way in itunes yet when I look at the volume of my speakers it is up but the lil greeen part that shows the volume doesnt even get up to 50. Yet other times the speakers will work just fine and I can set it on 30 and hear just fine. The green bar will go all the way up like it should. Any suggestions of how to fix this problem.

Is my $3000 Gaming PC worth it's weight? I've always been a console gamer since the SNES but this next generation of consoles seem to be a massive waste of money. ANYWAY; I'm going entirely PC so I thought If I'm going into PC gaming I should go all out! Heres what I'm buying: Video Card - http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX44469 Cooling - http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX43888 Processor - http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX42685 Motherboard - http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX45854 SSD - http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX44751 Tower - http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX31654 RAM - http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX37148 So the price including tax is a little over $3000. (I'm missing a few components too.) How do you think this RIG will hold up? Will I need to upgrade it in the next 5 years? Is their anything you'd change? I'm doing all my shopping at memory express because a friend works there, BUT if you know of a better place I'd like to know that too! Thanks - Mike Cero
Why when I upgraded my PC did it seem to get slower? Since I upgraded from 1gb of ram to 3gb of ram for gaming, my PC seems to have actually decreased in speed, does anyone have an idea why? An additional piece of information, I accidentally deleted my BIOS a while back, and had to buy another Motherboard (Gulp), because my old one wasn't able to cope with the additional RAM. However now when I have a new Motherboard, fully compatible, i've noticed a sizeable difference in speed to loadup and such. Also, does anyone else know how to swap fans I use? I used to use a quieter internal fan, but now it's swapped over to a more noisy fan (since the PC shop stint) any help about that either please?

How can I use the computer more "silently"?see details...? I know this is a strange kind of question,but I need to use the computer silently.Which means that I locked my door and saying that I'm studying,but I'm on my PC.Well not everytime,only when I don't want to study.But my parents hear when I am hitting a button or clicking.I tried to push them more softly but doesn't work on a game where I have to tap them quickly.Do you know any idea to keep it quiet while I am hitting buttons?don't say stupid things

What desktop should i buy for film school? I'm am going to film school in the fall and I need help finding the right computer. I need something that will allow me to do video editing and some gaming. I feel like I could get more power for my money with a desktop, but I'm not sure if I will need the portability of a laptop at school. My budget is restricts me to under 1,000$, but I would really love to find something in the range of 500$ to 800$ if possible. If someone could give me some information on the desktop vs laptop debate, as well as specific models that one would recommend, It would be very helpful and very much appreciated. Thanks!
I am hoping to buy PC components for a new PC, will these all work?

I am also getting a couple of fans too. Thanks I have changed my PSU to a corsair 600W and would you recommend getting this motherboard instead of the one I currently have in my basket.

what laptop should i buy for college? I'm a college sophomore. I started out with a tablet for engineering, but I changed my major, so I would now like to sell my tablet and get a new laptop. My budget is about $1500, depending on how much I get for my tablet. I don't have many requirements. I'd like it to be fast and fairly lightweight because I'll be carrying it around a lot. I do a lot of writing papers and I take notes on my laptop. Oh...and no Macs
The volume on my computer adjusts itself automatically. How do I fix this? My computer lowers the volume of loud parts of a song, and raises the volume of quiet parts. This adjusts the audio to match the system volume, ignoring the volume setting in the program that is playing the audio. I could lower the system volume, but when I have multiple sources of audio open (such as iTunes and a video game), I cannot make one of the sources quieter or louder. How can I fix this problem? I am using Windows 7, and my computer has Beats Audio.
How much power should the PSU for my Computer be able to provide? I am building a computer. With the specs below, how high should the wattage be on my theoretical PSU? I am thinking 500 as a balance between cost and power, but I'm no enthusiast, so advice would be appreciated. CPU - Intel BX80616I3540 CORE i3 540/3.06GHz/4MB CACHE/LGA1156 Motherboard - Intel BLKDH55TC H55/uATX/DDR3/LGA1156/PCIe2.0x16/GIGA LAN Memory - A-RAM 4GB single module DDR3 PC-10600 (1333MHz) 240-pin RAM, non-ECC CL9, Hynix IC, 256 x 8, JEDEC CL9-9-9-24, 3-year warranty HDD - Western Digital WD10EARS 3.5" CAVIAR GREEN, 1TB, INTELIPOWER, 64MB, SATA II, 3 YRS Graphics Card - Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 (eg. 1024MB Point) This PC is designed for 3D Gaming at an affordable cost. About $650 (Not including the monitor, accessories or PSU in that though.) Feel free to leave any suggestions to improve this without hiking the cost too much if you want. Thanks for answering. :)
