i always thought gaming computers make good computers in general don't they? i mean, gaming-wise they are already better than normal ones, and all that RAM and Memory space is good too, plus they need to be built with good processors, that means they are good at internet browsing too right?

Anyone verify this little theory i have?

~3 years old, 767MB ram, 3.3GHZ and 140GB HDD.

It's served me well over the years, since I don't play games or do anything memory intensive. However, over the past week or so it's been crashing/restarting -and on some occasions bluescreening- so I think it's time for me to get a new one.

It's awesome, and just a couple of months old.
AMD quad core processor, 3.4ghz, 4 gigs of 1,3 ghz ram, HD5700 videocard and an Asus m4a785td-v evo mobo. 700W power supply, awesome case with a window, 20cm fan with blue leds on top and a 12 cm fan with lights on the back.
Newest game I have on it is Battlefield Bad Company 2, and it runs great on the highest settings.
Custom built.
Only thing I don't like is how the power supply heats up my room, but I have a table fan for that.

Mine works pretty well. I'm in love with it, it's a computer my friend at the time, him and my boyfriend built it for me. Asus motherboard is pimp pimp. It's fast and great for gaming.

The only thing that bothers me doesn't have to deal with my computer per say but more with Windows 7. I can't play any of my old games because I can't figure out how to set it up to where they can run properly.


I respond to every message!

And, of course, it runs Crysis and Warhead with the highest settings perfectly.

Oh, be sure that the i3 processor is not 330m, that's an older model. I don't think there's that much of a difference but there probably is.
I plan on grabbing the Intel Core i3-540 Clarkdale, there is a slightly higher tier i3, but it's too expensive for the performance.

I'm not much of a PC gamer, but if it can play some Valve shit on high settings, then I'm good to go.

I've got the Intel i3 350m, and it seems to have support for virtual cores. It should run Valve games on fairly high settings. If the 350m can do high settings, then I'm sure the 540 will do it beautifully.

I guess it runs okay. It can run WoW on the lowest settings with 30 FPS. Not too bad for a computer with a Celeron processor and only 1GB of RAM.

I still wish I could have a more powerful one.
