    just buy a xbox360 way more games and exclusives then pc way better graphics way better controls (it takes more skill to play fps's like halo 3 and cod:mw2 on xbox then pc) it only costs like 300 dollars and consoles are just superior to computers in every way shape and form

    I was gonna offer you mine.....since I don't use my desktop anymore lol
  5. Sep 21, 2008
    Not bad actually; they have reasonable prices. Got all my parts from there, assembled on my own and it turned out cheaper for me that way.

    True, some games don't port to PC (and some ports are epic FAIL), but better graphics? Nowaybrah. I can run higher than 1080p on my under-$800 system and *download* and play Blu-ray content. Better controls? Let me see you create some binds using an Xbox. LOL CONTROLLER FAIL.

    Let me see you do graphic design work, keep a checkbook, do your taxes, Google Earth, etc...... while still getting to play games and watch HD movies.

    Computers (and desktops in particular) > Consoles. FOREVER.

    If you want, PM me and I'll help you tweak your system setup for your budget and performance desires. I build systems on the side and really enjoy doing it.

    By the way, SiTrik=FAIL. :razz:

    YAY Nebraska can you tell me whats good for my new comp that keeps getting hated on :razz:

    cpu comes with the i3,i5, or i7 right?
  11. May 11, 2010
    Here you go, Icee...

    Case: Cooler Master CM690
    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (better)
    CPU: Intel i7-930
    Cooler: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
    RAM: G.Skill Pi 6GB DDR3 1600 (better)
    HDD: 3x1TB Caviar Black (better, plus you get a backup drive)
    Corsair Nova 32GB SSD
    Video: Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 (about the same)
    Optical: Samsung Blu-Ray Combo Drive (better)
    Cooling: 1x80mm for CPU
    2x140mm case fans
    Software: Win7 Ultimate x64 Edition
    Office 2010 Professional (better)
    Power: OCZ GameXStream 850W (better)

    And I'll do it for $1600. Maybe less if I can get a better deal on the components. Where do you live?
  12. Mar 16, 2008
    I would still push 8gigs of ram if you're going i7 or your won't be giving it enough potential...
  13. May 11, 2010
    I thought about that, but trying to stay close to his budget. Add 50 bucks for another 2GB if you wish.

    I must add, I'm running i5-650 with 4gb of the same RAM on a Gigabyte board and I do some heavy graphic design work plus game on it, etc... and I don't feel any performance lag.

    The system is overkill IMO, but for someone willing to shell out the dollars for a computer they won't have to upgrade for a long while, this is a great deal.
  14. Jun 23, 2010
    I recommend at least 4GB. I'm using about 2.3GB idle.
  15. Oct 22, 2007
    I would honestly spend a little more cash on a gpu if you are gonna play games better than css alot. Even then with some places in the maps i still bog down (35 fps lowest) on lower side of things with fps with a gtx295. Partly due to everything being maxed, but just alot going on when you pile everyone in a corner and top that with all the zombies coming in. Just something i would really think on. Also new cards coming out would make me wait to get something better for the same amount of cash. Then again i built my system to a different catagory aimed at gaming when i did mine a good while back.
  16. Jun 23, 2010
    If your a gamer, you mainly want to focus on maily GPU and CPU (To avoid bottleneck) SO if you game alot, those two should be the main mid-high end part in the system. But thats IMO.

    I think he was trollin'. Atleast I hope so. >.<
  18. May 11, 2010
    The 5770 is a very decent card and beats a lot of the ones out there right now. I'm running a 4850 and don't have any problems with framerate whatsoever (plus, I watch a lot of 1080p stuff and nary a skip).

    ATI > NVidia any day of the week. Personal opinion backed up by tons of benchmarks.

    I wouldn't recommend it if I didn't think it would suit your needs and wants! :smile:
  19. Jun 23, 2010
    AMD > Intel
    ATI > Nvidia
    PC > Console

    Nuff said!
  20. May 11, 2010
    Well, you're 2 for 3 there, Skippy....

    AMD is NOT better. I used to be on that bandwagon.... not anymore.

    AMD is really only alive because Intel can't have the monopoly and because they bought ATI.
