Help Me Build My Pc 2010-08-29 03:32:07 Reply

Hey Newgrounds, I'm getting a gaming PC soon and I need help picking some parts :P
http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/AMD_Athlo n_II_DDR2_Configurator

Here are the things I'm sure of:
500 GB Hard drive
AMD Processor (Probably one of the cheapest 6)
nvidia Graphics Card (I was thinking the GT 220)
Apollo Case or the PSI Cyborg (Help me choose :))

Few Questions:
Should I upgrade the motherboard? Its either +$6 or +$10
Is it worth it to get an upgraded video card brand?
Should I get the Fan LCD or will I never use it?

Requests:
Keep it under or around $500, if its a good amount under $500 I can get the Logitech G15 Keyboard :D

Thanks

Buy everything on the site and mold all of it together to make a super computer.

Instead of wasting money, Build a PC, Yes, I said build a PC, What you are doing is not building a PC, You're wasting your money.

Gaming laptops are made not to run slow...

And hell you may have to use an office fan in that part list somewhere.

Wait dude I thought ibuypower was not a good pc seller!!!!

Do some research too before you buy a gaming pc!
I'm pretty sure I searched it before and it's not a very good website.

Anyways, with computers, anything below USD1000 is not a good gaming computer.
But it IS possible someone could use a cheaper computer.
It's just that it's not very easy.

Building your own computer by buying parts is supposedly WAY cheaper tho.
No service charge.

Dude- DUDE!

Build you're own damn PC, not pay someone else to do so, how the fuck is it a cheaper method otherwise?

Also I think that the nVidia 220 is expensive for what it is, I'd suggest a 8800GTX if you wonna stay with nvidia, those things are awesome for their price range and punch per pound.

I like how everyone in this thread assumes that knowing how to build a computer is common knowledge.

Quit going apeshit because someone is dumber than you, cocknuggets.


I come and go. Sometimes I say stupid shit. I'll regret this post when I look back at it next year.

i just stopped laughing

Also remember technology doubles roughly every 18 months so wait until the upgrades come out then go for the parts your gunning for now, prices will be reduced


the words homemade and circumcision should never be used in the same sentence
