I need help getting a computer that's good for most games.? So as said before, I was wondering what computer would work best for me so that I can play numerous games without having to pay a butt load of money the computer, the very most being around 500 dollars. One that's good for playing ya know, League of Legends, Minecraft, Skyrim, Silent Hill, Gaming Emulators, and just most games in general. I was thinking about something like this: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/gamer-ultra-desktop-8gb-memory-500gb-hard-drive/1295083.p?id=1219047435148&skuId=1295083&st=pcmcat287600050002_categoryid$abcat0501000&cp=1&lp=7 but I wasn't sure so I thought I might ask the community what some of you thought was best. Thanks!

Making my boyfriend a Gaming Desktop? His birthday is coming up, and he has been talking about wanting a new computer for years. I've done alot of work with my own computers, and well... he isn't that good with tech stuff. So I'm going to build him one. I've narrowed it down to two options that I think would suit his needs. (mainly skyrim, Crysis and a few MMOs, while none of those are really difficult to run on max, he has a good 40 graphics mods installed on all of them and it gives a significant FPS drop, so I'm making something that can handle that) So here are the two options: - Cooler Master Silencio 550 case - 1000W Certified Power Supply Unit - ASUS Crosshair V Formula 990FX (AMD 990FX Chipset) (USB 3.0 + SATA 6GB/s) (Socket AM3+) (ATX Form Factor, 4 DIMMS, 4 PCI Expansion Slots) - AMD® Bulldozer FX-8150 Zambezi (3.60GHz) (32nm, 8MB L3 cache) AM3+ Socket (Eight-Core CPU) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660Ti+ (3GB) GDDR5 - DUAL - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660Ti+ (3GB) GDDR5 - 1,000GB (1TB) 7200RPM Western Digital/Seagate/Hitachi/Samsung (32MB Cache) - another 1,000GB (1TB) 7200RPM Western Digital/Seagate/Hitachi/Samsung (32MB Cache) - Raid 1 HDD Configuration - Mirror - No Raid Controller - Blu-Ray Player/DVD Writer - H20: (Stage 5) Frostbite Liquid Cooling Cooling System (on the CPU & Chipset) - 16GB DDR3 2133MHz (4GBx4 SODIMMS) Corsair Vengeance - USB Bluetooth Adapter - Wireless PCI-E 802.11n Up to 300MB/s - Integrated Motherboard Audio - USB 3.0 4-Port PCI-Express Card - All-in-1 USB Memory Card Reader Add-On - Internal Digital Media Card Reader (Black) - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-Bit Edition) Overclocked to about 4 GHz Altogether, about 3000$ Secondly - Mountain Mods u2-ufo case - AeroCool Cool Panel 3 Controller (Media Card Reader with Temperature Display and Fan Controller) - LED Performance Fans - 1000W Certified Power Supply Unit - ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE (Intel Z77 Chipset) (ATX Form Factor, 4 DIMMS, 4 PCI Expansion Slots) - Intel® Core i5-3570K (3.40-3.80GHz) (22nm, 6MB cache) (Quad-Core CPU) - NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 680 (EVGA) (2GB) GDDR5 - DUAL NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 680 (EVGA) (2GB) GDDR5 - 1,000GB (1TB) 7200RPM Western Digital/Seagate/Hitachi/Samsung (32MB Cache) - another 1,000GB (1TB) 7200RPM Western Digital/Seagate/Hitachi/Samsung (32MB Cache) - Raid 1 HDD Configuration - Mirror - No Raid Controller - 24x DVD Writer/Reader + 48x CD Writer/Reader - H20: (Stage 5) Frostbite Liquid Cooling Cooling System (on CPU & Chipset) - H20 Tubing - [WHITE] w/ High-Performance Fluid - 16GB DDR3 2133MHz (4GBx4 SODIMMS) Corsair Dominator GT with DHX - USB Bluetooth Adapter - Wireless USB 802.11n Up to 300MB/s - Integrated Motherboard Audio - USB 3.0 4-Port PCI-Express Card - All-in-1 USB Memory Card Reader Add-On - Internal Digital Media Card Reader - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-Bit Edition) This one overclocked to about 5 GHz Altogether, about $4,000 Both would have Ubuntu as a secondary operating system. So which of these do you think would be better in the end? I prefer the second, but I think it might be a tad too much. Any comments, criticism or any advice on how to make them better? (oh, and just as a side note, both cases would be modded to have a triforce built onto them, because... well... Zelda. Kind of explains itself)
I need help customizing a gaming desktop? I want to build a gaming desktop, but I will probably just customize one on-line so I don't mess up building it. Firstly, I am not sure on a budget my budget when I buy might be anywhere from 2,000 USD to 4,500 USD. Some things I want are Windows 7, a good processor, 24 gb of Ram, a really good graphics system, and a 2 tb HD. I have some general questions well. 1) What is the difference between dual core, quad core, i5, i7, etc? 2) Does RAM affect the performance much? 3) How important is processor speed? And what is overclocking? Is it useful? Can it harm the life of the PC? 4) Is liquid cooling overdoing it? I want ot keep the computer AS COOL AS POSSIBLE. And also very, very, VERY quiet. 5) What are these small HDD's that cost so much? Like 30 gb for 400 when the 2 TB one costs around 600. I think they are something like Raid or whatnot I cannot remember at this time. 6) I want two monitors. I will be a student and I am a gamer. However, I also want multiple graphics cards. The multiple graphics cards is so I can run games at highest or high settings and get good performance. With my current laptop I play on medium or usually low. I can play on medium or high (maybe) with 20-40 FPS depending on the game, the action and the settings. However, I usually play on low for great FPS (like 50-100 depending). I am seeing discrepancies that two or more graphics systems (cards) in sli or crossover might not support the use of two monitors. What should I do here? Can you explain more about having multiple monitors and multiple graphics cards? 7) Is it possible to have liquid cooling on graphics cards? I want to keep the computer life as long as possible. 8) Where would you recommend buying the computer? I would most prefer not buying any base models. I know this is asking a lot, but I really could use some help here. Please be as detailed as possible. If oyu would rather communicate a different way just emali me at tylertracey09@yahoo.com Some games I am going to be playing for sure: TF2 MapleStory World Of Warcraft Counter Strike Source Terraria BFBC2 and 3 Final Fantasy 14 (Maybe, I wasn't really into it) I am not interested in a laptop and I most definitely do not want anything from HP or Alienware or Dell. HP is a shit company I have had problems with every HP I have ever owned. Same with Dell. And for Alienware I do not want ot pay a premium for a name. And like I said I will probably customize my own computer online at somethign like cyberpowerpc.com and have it built and shipped to me.

game on pc vs xbox 360? Not to bash xbox but i just bought a new game for my 3d gaming desktop which was metro2033 and i cant even tell you how much better it was. When i played it on xbox, shots seemed like they didn't hit the enemy in certain scenarios and no, i do not suck at fps's. Im happy i saved up for a nice gaming pc, especially in 3d for metro, gaming starts to shine. Anybody else agree with me or notice the changes in decorative gameplay, realism.?

Good Low-Spec PC Games? Hi, i have a very good desktop pc, but my school gave everyone laptops, and i want some good low-spec games that will run on it. it has a 1.6GHZ processor, 2Gb RAM, and a 256mb video card. It is a Lenovo Ideapad, with windows 7. i know this isn't very detailed, but any ideas on some decent games that will work? also, due to restrictions, i can't play any online games, just single player/split screen. thank you in advance Games i already have: plants vs. zombies half-life 2 (with a bit of lag) GTA 3 GTA Vice City (Also, i have left 4 dead, but it is too high-specd.) DXS, thank you for the fast reply. however, i'm not a massive fan of RTS's. ill try it out, but i'm mainly looking for shooters/puzzle/action games. (But not all in one!)
Building A Gaming Desktop? I have decided on building a gaming desktop. wat parts I should get and where should i get it? I am hoping for a price around $2000 dollars, maybe a bit less. I would like the desktop to run a decent amount of games with decent or great graphics not excellent because i used to play pc games on very low graphics. No moniter, speakers, mouse and keyboard; that is unless u find something at a good price. but my main concern is getting the parts for the desktop.fast and silent as well. this is asking a bit much but i would like some feedback. Thank you. :-)

What would be a good build for a gaming PC? I've been wanting to make a gaming PC for a while, but I don't know what the best parts to buy are. I'm willing to pay about $1000 + tax for this, so try to stay within that range. Also, I'm wondering what games I won't be able to play with only a $1000 PC.
can someone help me come up with a good desktop rig? I want to build a gaming desktop. My budget is about 1600$ and I want the best performing gaming desktop imaginable for that price, can anyone help me to their best of consumer and computer knowledge come up with the best possible desktop for this type of money. This is strictly for the computer itself, I have head phones I'll be fine with noise. I don't need a keyboard... this budget is directed completely towards the computer itself. Also not sure if I should run linux or win 7 But that's why I'm asking on here. The computer could run on diesel fuel for all I care I'm mainly concerned about performance.

Can you change the graphics card on an acer aspire desktop? I don't know the exact model, but in general can you or can't you? It's 500gb hard drive, 3gb ram. That's all I can remember off the top of my head. It was brand new about 3 years ago.
How to evaluate the power of a pc component? I want to build a computer some day but the problem is i don't know how to evaluate the power of some pc component like graphic card and mother board for example. By that i mean if i want to buy RAM i know that more Gig better it is and ill buy the 2 Gig instead of the 1 Gig. So i want to know how do i make the difference between them?
Need help on computer water cooling system? I'm planning on buying a gaming computer soon, and with it comes a water cooling system. The water cooling system is an Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan(Enhanced Cooling Performance + Extreme Silent at 20dBA) (All Venom OC Certified) Single Standard 120MM Fan. I really am not too familiar with water cooling systems, despite having trying to read up about them online. When I first get it, do I need to fill it up with water? I read a very vague comment on another website in which I think they stated you do not need to fill the 120mm version up with water and that it is maintenance free, but I'm not quite sure. Thanks in advance.
How to make sure i am buying a quiet laptop ? Hi, I hope somebody can help me out. I bought a laptop, maybe one and a half, almost two years ago. I bought an Acer. Here are the specs: Acer travelmate 5742G Intel core i3 Nvidia Geforce 1024MB VRAM 15.6 inch monitor 4GB DDR 3 640 GB HDD The problem that i am having, is the noise. I don't know how to express this but, i am extremely sensitive to noise. The previous PC desktop i had, was very noisy and i was literally suffering for more than two years, because i had to bare that noise while focusing and concentrating deeply into my studying. When i finally got the money to buy a laptop, my only desire was to be quiet, but i though that, every laptop is quiet. So, when i bought the Acer laptop, i described above, it was relatively quiet at first, although my brother's laptop was much more quieter, and he bought his laptop 4 years ago, but it was Sony. Anyway, it was fine at first, but now its very loud. Just the though of experiencing the same pain again, makes me wanna throw the laptop out of the window and stab myself. I am still studying and i need to focus and concentrate very deeply, so i need quiet. I might be able to get about 800/900$ for a new laptop, but this time, i have to be 1000000% sure that it will be quiet. So, how do i make sure that i am buying a quiet laptop ? I think that, the laptop i have now, is too powerful and perhaps because of that, it gets noisy. It's not THAT noisy, but it's noisier than it should be. Can somebody, please, help me with what laptop i should be looking for ? Should i look for lower specs ? or a certain brand ? I mainly do programming on my laptop, sometimes i edit videos and do some graphic work but nothing too ''excessive''. I know that, every laptop makes a certain noise, and it cannot be helped, as it's the cooling fan or the hard disk, but there is a difference in the noise, and that's what i am talking about. I don't want the fan to run constantly, and when it does, i don't want to make such irritating noises. I have used other laptops (friend's) and it's definitely not the same as mine. The fan turns on rarely and when it does it only makes a small ''wind'' kind of noise and it's not irritating at all. Mine is more like an angry giant bee - (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz) like this. Sorry for my long question, i really, really, really hope somebody can give me an advice on how to make sure the laptop is quiet, what kind of features to look for when buying. PS: By the way, since it seems cheaper from Amazon, i might prefer getting it from there, so i might not be able to actually see or touch it before i buy it. Thank you.
What's a good laptop to get for a small home business? I would like to get something obviously with a lot of memory but also something capable of running programs for my business like Quick Books, Adobe, MS Office, etc. Any idea what I should get without breaking the bank?

Why do fonts look so awful on Firefox in Ubuntu? Do the Ubuntu devs use the terminal to surf the web? Why do fonts look so awful on Firefox while using Ubuntu with a resolution of 1440x900?

Is this a good PC configuration for the price? I'm on the market for a new PC. I'm a little unfamiliar with buying customized PCs like CYBERPOWERPC. In the past, I've always bought generic brands that have everything already there. But I want a PC that's upgradeable so that buying a new computer in the future won't be necessary, at least not for a long while. I do play video games, so a graphics card that can handle the new generation would be nice, but I'd hardly consider myself hardcore about it. I just want to know whether this PC makes sense to buy because it seems pretty inexpensive to me, but maybe the computer isn't as good as I think. I also want to make sure I don't buy any parts that for some reason aren't compatible with others. (Also, I've thought about building my own, but I feel so unfamiliar with all that, I decided to just pay the extra cash and buy one already built.)

I need advise on buying a new laptop? ok i currently have a MacBook White in great state, but i want to start gaming soon. So im switching to a windows. my budget is around 300 euro's I want to use it for gaming (not nolife pro), so it must be capable of that. I don't care about a Super HD screen stuff. I must be silent (the cooler), when i watch movies at night. Any suggestions? By the way if it's around 400 euro's im okay with that too.
Does this desktop have a high enough power supply? http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1411_1446&products_id=22291 Just wondering if the PSU on this pre-built gaming system is enough. I don't plan on upgrading it any time soon.
What are some cute laptop brands? Are there any laptop brands with skins that are colorful with cute designs? I would like the laptop to be small and quiet as well. Currently, I have a Sony Vaio, and it's WAY too noisy. The fan drives me crazy. Thanks Matt H. You reminded me of something else I'm looking for. I would like the laptop to still be able to hold games like LOTR and Morrowind.
Advice For Gaming Desktop Build.? After my gaming desktop build was successful a friend has asked me to do a budget desktop build. She want's to be able to play the sims 3 with all expansions on medium-high settings. So far I have 2 ideas. Idea 1: MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P AMD 760G $102.35. CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 260 3,2G AM3 Dual Core $102.35. RAM: Kingston 4GB kit Gaming HyperX 1600MHz CL9 kit (2x2GB) DDR3 NonECC $56.35. POWER SUPPLY: Cooler Master 600W eXtreme Power Plus SLI Silent 12CM Fan Newest ATX 12V V2.3 Dual +12V1 and +12V2 $113.85. HARDDRIVE: Hitachi 500GB SATA2 3.5" Internal HDD , 16M , 7200RPM $67.85. GPU: Radeon Sapphire HD5670 1GB DDR3 PCI-E (775MHx/800MHz) $113.85. That build totals to $591.26 which is within her price range and leaves her room to buy a new case. Idea 2: CPU: Intel Sandy Bridge Core i3 2100 3.10GHz 3MB Cache LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Processor $182.85. MOTHERBOARD: GIGABYTE H61M-USB3-B3 LGA1155 Intel H61 (Revised B3 Stepping)2x DDR3-1333 USB3.0 Onboard VGA/DVI $128.80. RAM: Kingston 4GB kit Gaming HyperX 1600MHz CL9 kit (2x2GB) DDR3 NonECC $56.35. POWERSUPPLY: Cooler Master 600W eXtreme Power Plus SLI Silent 12CM Fan Newest ATX 12V V2.3 Dual +12V1 and +12V2 $113.85. HARDDRIVE: Hitachi 500GB SATA2 3.5" Internal HDD , 16M , 7200RPM $67.85. GPU: Radeon Sapphire HD5670 1GB DDR3 PCI-E (775MHx/800MHz) $113.85. This build totals to $663.55 which is just within her budget. Basically the only thing that changes is the CPU & Motherboard. I wanted to check both builds are compatible? Also would either cpu need an aftermarket cooler? Opinions on which of the 2 builds is better would be appreciated. The site I buy through is www.pbtech.co.nz if your going to give me a suggestion it'd be helpful if you looked at there prices first as U.S prices are a lot cheaper. This is all in NZ Dollars and please keep in mind this is a BUDGET build. The most intense game will be the sims 3. Lmfao. George S you obviously can't read. I clearly listed the site I buy from, I'm from NZ you idiot. All the shit you listed is pointless because not only is that an american site, the prices are completely different prices here. Just as an example, the SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E 2.1 x16 is $205.85 here, not $115. Next time you decide to answer a question it might help if you actually read the question properly instead of making yourself look like an ignorant asshole. Good thing I wouldn't wont your "help" again, eh. And thank you Behrad and Fordry you were very helpful =)
Best gaming desktop for me? Hello, I'm looking to buy a new computer, and I was wondering what would be best for my needs. I use my desktop mainly for gaming, so I need something relatively powerful. My previous computer was an Acer Predator, and it was a great gaming desktop.(It got fell off a table and is beyond repair, need a new computer). I play games like WoW, CSS, Team Fortress 2, so nothing too heavy to handle for a decent computer. Im looking forward to playing Guild Wars 2 though, so I would like something with high definition and high performance graphics card. Im not into single player epics, more or less online cooperative games such as MMO's or FPS's. I went to www.cyberpowerpc.com and created a computer on there, and this is the setup I ended up choosing for myself.

My budget is $3000-$4000, just tell me what you think is best, without anything unnecessarily overpowered, but able to handle future games and last me a long while, lets say 2 years without much problems. Thanks! I checked Alienware website, their computers are WAY overpriced, like 8k dollars, and they dont even have best processors to choose from on customization! cyberpowerpc is where its at i bet.

Heres what I've picked so far: CASE: AZZA Hurrican 2000 CSAZ-2000 Black SECC Japanese Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811517010 HARDDRIVE: HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.C HDS721010CLA332 (0F10383) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145304 MOTHERBOARD: ASRock 890GX PRO3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157244 GRAPHIC CARD: MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr II OC GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127564 POWER SUPPLY: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RS850-AMBAJ3-US 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171048 RAM/MEMORY: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314 PROCESSOR: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849 OPERATING SYSTEM: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit 1-Pack - OEM ADDITIONAL COOLING: CORSAIR CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181015 Now I've got a question regarding cooling overclocking and crossfire. For cooling, is the cooling provided in the case and the liquid cpu cooler I bought enough to keep the temperature down whilst having the computer perform at its highest? Also I heard that the fans in the processor are crap and can be replaced, how do I replace them? They aren't ordinary fans right? Is it really necessary to over clock? Im guessing with the components I'm gonna buy I can run any high end game at its max settings, so why overclock? Also is it dangerous? And if I do decide to overclock, should I buy extra cooling fans etc? I know that crossfire is for AMD graphic cards ( or was it ATI? :p ) and SLI is for nvidia cards, but my motherboard doesnt seem to be able to uphold 2 graphic cards right? The only reason I picked this mother board is cause the other ones some users have said that it breaks down after a while. If I decide to buy 2 nvidia cards and buy a motherboard that suppors an AMD processor and SLI, would I be able to simply replace the current motherboard with a new one later on? Also how would my pc fair in the upcoming years without upgrading it?
Building my first gaming desktop, need urgent help!? I'm building my first gaming desktop, and since I don't know too much about computers or their components, I don't really know if the parts I picked would actually work with each other, like if its compatible with AMD and whatever. Heres what I've picked so far: CASE: AZZA Hurrican 2000 CSAZ-2000 Black SECC Japanese Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811517010 HARDDRIVE: HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.C HDS721010CLA332 (0F10383) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145304 MOTHERBOARD: ASRock 890GX PRO3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157244 GRAPHIC CARD: MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr II OC GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127564 POWER SUPPLY: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RS850-AMBAJ3-US 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171048 RAM/MEMORY: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314 PROCESSOR: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849 OPERATING SYSTEM: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit 1-Pack - OEM ADDITIONAL COOLING: CORSAIR CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181015 QUESTIONS: 1) With the selected components, would they work together? Is everything compatible with each other? Would my motherboard work with an AMD processor? 2) Would this gaming desktop be able to run today's games in the highest settings? I'm talking about Crysis 2, Bad Company 2 and the Witcher 2 3) Would I be able to cross fire? Does my motherboard and the other parts allow it? And would you recommend me to crossfire the graphics card I have now with a duplicate or another one, or is that one card enough to get me by for now? 4) Ive read somewhere that the fans that come with the motherboard are standard fans and are actually kinda crap. My emphasis on this desktop is cooling, as I cannot afford to overheat yet another desktop, therefore how would I be able to replace it? And the fan I linked above, is that the kind of fan I just place on my case as an additional fan? 5) I would be able to upgrade individual parts later on right? Thanks! I desperately need help as I'm so lost:(

How to build your own gaming desktop with these components:? I had an Asus G74sx gaming laptop and it broke but my friend managed to salvage these components: Intel Core i7-2720QM Processor 4GB 2Rx8 PC3 10600S RAM card (2 of them) 750GB 7200RPM SATA 3GB/s Hard Drive DC BRUSHLESS Model: KSB06105HB Fans (2 of them) If it's possible I would like to build a gaming DESKTOP for under $400 using as many of these components as I can with other components on the market. (I would really like to use the fans as they are incredibly silent). It doesn't have to add up to $400 as I've seen builds that have all components that add up to that, but I already have the most expensive component accounted for. I'd like it if the system could handle any game at the "Crysis on low graphics with 40 fps" level. I'm not 100% sure how to properly search for parts since this is my first time building a custom desktop, any tips and links would be appreciated.
Which of these gaming desktop builds is better? I want a gaming desktop that is able to run all of the latest games and more advanced games that will come out in the future smoothly and efficiently (I don't want any lag in my frame rates or anything like that while i'm running my games) and was wondering which one of these builds would better meet that requirement.

Just want some input and feedback: Is this a good setup for a gaming/schooling desktop computer system? Hello all! I am currently racking my brain right now on if this is going to be a good choice for my next system. I'm kind of a jack-of-all-trades so to speak. I am currently a student for Network Design & Administration so I will want to run my virtual environments on Windows 7 for labs and homework, and I am also an avid gamer who has been out of circulation for quite some time. Examples of some games I play: Silent Hunter IV: Wolves Of The Pacific, Medieval II: Total War, Empire: Total War, Company Of Heroes, Oblivion, Morrowind, and hopefully Crysis in the future! Here is what I kind of have my heart set on right now: GPU - SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity ~I would eventually like to get two of these for SLI/CF, but that will have to come at a later time unfortunately as funds are currently short. I have always had good luck with Sapphire and would like to stick with them if they are still of good quality. RAM - CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1333C7 G ~This will be my first experience with Corsair. I've done a lot of researching of the reviews of Corsair, and feel comfortable with their overall highly spoken-of reputation of reliability! Was thinking about DDR3-1600, but don't want to over-stress my Bloomfield 3.06GHz i7-950 (specs will be shown below, please feel free to interject if you think I am short-changing myself on this! Not too concerned with OC, but it would be nice maybe in the future!). Motherboard - GIGABYTE GA-X58-USB3 LGA 1366 Intel X58 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard ~Originally wanted to go with the GIGABYTE UD3R, but changed my mind to this selection as cost was a concern to me. CPU - Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor BX80601950 ~Coming from an old AMD setup, liked the reviews about the newer Intel chips, so decided to give this guy a chance. HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive ~Don't need a crap-ton of space, I figure a 1TB would be enough. seeing as how I've had my one 320GB WD drive for the past 5 years, and have never come close to even filling a third of it up. But extra space potential is always nice! Optical Media - LITE-ON Blu-ray Burner with 3D Playback SATA iHBS212 LightScribe ~This is not a necessity for me, however, LITE=ON has always worked exceptionally for me so I figured why not. So my question is..... do you guys think this would be a good setup to last me the next 5 years before the next go-around??? Any input, suggestions, or feedback is more than welcome!! Thanks!! The Crows EDIT: I almost forgot to mention the case and power supply specs as well! These two things have already been ordered, so I forgot to include them on my list! PSU - KINGWIN Lazer LZ-850 850W Modular 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC W/ 3-Way LED Switch and Universal Modular Connector Power Supply ~Now, I know I'll probably get crucified by everyone for this selection, but from what I've read and heard over the past couple of weeks, Kingwin has been really trying to make some strides in the PSU department, there's just not a lot of people willing to trust them yet since they are still pretty much an unknown name, which is understandable! But I want to give them a chance to prove themselves. Case - Thermaltake Element V Black Edition Steel Full Tower Computer Case Colorshift Fans VL200K1W2Z ~My last full tower is an older ThermalTake Armor+ series. I just like this brand.

Heres what I've picked so far: CASE: AZZA Hurrican 2000 CSAZ-2000 Black SECC Japanese Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811517010 HARDDRIVE: HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.C HDS721010CLA332 (0F10383) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145304 MOTHERBOARD: ASRock 890GX PRO3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157244 GRAPHIC CARD: MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr II OC GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127564 POWER SUPPLY: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RS850-AMBAJ3-US 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171048 RAM/MEMORY: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314 PROCESSOR: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849 OPERATING SYSTEM: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit 1-Pack - OEM ADDITIONAL COOLING: CORSAIR CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181015 Now I've got a question regarding cooling overclocking and crossfire. For cooling, is the cooling provided in the case and the liquid cpu cooler I bought enough to keep the temperature down whilst having the computer perform at its highest? Also I heard that the fans in the processor are crap and can be replaced, how do I replace them? They aren't ordinary fans right? Is it really necessary to over clock? Im guessing with the components I'm gonna buy I can run any high end game at its max settings, so why overclock? Also is it dangerous? And if I do decide to overclock, should I buy extra cooling fans etc? I know that crossfire is for AMD graphic cards ( or was it ATI? :p ) and SLI is for nvidia cards, but my motherboard doesnt seem to be able to uphold 2 graphic cards right? The only reason I picked this mother board is cause the other ones some users have said that it breaks down after a while. If I decide to buy 2 nvidia cards and buy a motherboard that suppors an AMD processor and SLI, would I be able to simply replace the current motherboard with a new one later on? Also how would my pc fair in the upcoming years without upgrading it?

Need help picking parts for a new gaming desktop! Please help!? Im almost done with a year deployment in Afghanistan and I was a pretty regular PC gamer back home. But now I have money for the 1st time to afford a great gaming rig. I was thinking of going Alienware, but after doing some shopping I realized that, although they offer a great product, it's not very cost efficient. After doing some more shopping, I found some great computers for reasonable prices, but I found out I could cut about 2 grand off the cost if I just bought the hardware and set everything up myself. Based on what I've read, I don't think I'll have any trouble with the assembly (I work as a forklift mechanic in the Army) but what I'm more worried about is a) picking the right parts and having them be compatible and b) selecting high end parts that also perform well for their prices. The following list is what I've chosen for my new PC Case: Coolermaster HAF 932 Full tower $140 (is a full tower necessary for what I've chosen? or simply better?) Motherboard: Asus Rampage III Formula Motherboard $300 Processor: Intel I-7-2600 Unlocked Processor, quad core, 8mb cache, 3.4ghz $330 Graphics Card: Twin EVGA GeForce 560 cards (maybe too overboard?) $500 ($250 each) RAM: Kingston Memory Kit 16gb 1600mhz DDR3 (four 4gb memory sticks) $214 Sound Card: Creative Labs Soundblaster X-FI Titanium Fatal1ty Pro $140 Power: Coolermaster Silent Pro M 1000w (how do I find how much power I actually need to run it?) $180 CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper N520 CPU Cooler (this case already has three 230 mm fans and a 140mm, do I really need another CPU fan?) $30 Fan Control: Aerocool V12XT Touch Panel Fan Controller $60 Hard Drive: Western Digital WD1002FAEX Black Hard Drive, 1TB, 7200 RPM, 64MB, SATA 6gbs $85 Monitor: Samsung 24 in Widescreen HD LED (have another 24 in 1080p full HD TV I will use as a second monitor) $320 The rest of what I put in is pretty standard, blu ray disc drive, keyboard, mouse, Windows 7 etc, gaming network card etc. These are just some questions that were bothering me while I was shopping. I have never built a PC before and never really purchased one exclusively for gaming either. Any kind of help is greatly appreciated. I understand these are a lot of questions so if there are any sources I should read up on to have a better understanding on what I am doing please feel free to mention them. Thanks in advance! Thanks so much for the help! For the processor I went ahead and decided to go with the I-7 990X Extreme because I can afford it and it genuinely appears as though it's the best on the market. It is quite expensive, but I think the additional processing power will really see use in something like this. I also went ahead and added an Intel 120 GB SSD drive with about 250 mbs read time. I think if I use the space wisely, 120 gigs should be plenty for what I want to use it for. Once again, thanks so much for the help and keep posting answers.

Also why not the graphic card? Im also a Nvidia user but ATI is calling my name on this one. Thank you for your responses!

What "silent" desktop pc do you recommend? I built my desktop computer a few years ago and I'm tired of hearing the fans. I was considering switching out all the fans and the video card, but I feel like its just not worth it at this point. My needs for a desktop are very minimal now since I don't play games on it anymore, but I still have some requirements. 1) Fits my 2.5" SSD (i don't mind using a 3.5" adapter) 2) Fits my 3.5" standard HDD 3) powerful enough to play 1080p x264 movies 4) gigabit lan 5) silent or pretty close to silent sorry, I guess I should've clarafied that I didn't wanna go all out on the cost. Water cooling is pretty expensive, is there a low cost solution to satisfy my needs?
Is this a good gaming pc setup (Desktop) To run most games on high? or ultra? Please don't tell me AMD sucks because i still like AMD.

asus EN8600GTS silent - geforce 8600 GTS - gaming issues? cpu : dual core 3.0 ram : 2gb problems occur when i set games on High graphics. for example : assassin's creed on HIGH . after a while system dumps(blue screen) or screen goes black with no response. what can i do to solve this(game crashes or no responses)? thank you for paying time. note: cpu temperature : {desktop=55 degree centigrade} {in game:at least 65 degree centigrade} (is this the problem? how to solve?)
What "silent" low cost desktop pc do you recommend? I built my desktop computer a few years ago and I'm tired of hearing the fans.

Say $500 or less not including hard drives (i already have the 2 drives). If I'm going to build it myself it would have to include motherboard, processor, memory, case, video card, (sound and network card can be integrated), PSU. I might be able to reuse my PSU since I have a really good Corsair PSU thats supposed to be very quiet.
Will this desktop computer be perfect for gaming? A little pricey but im tired of the lag on my favorite games. I play EVE Online, and SWTOR, BF3. This is all from the full desktop customization on ORIGIN PCs at orginpc.com. I also use wireless linkseys which is good. Would like to know what type of problems I might have with this setup, and if I will be able to run with high settings.
