Good gaming rig, advice, change?

Good gaming rig, advice, change? Topic: Hard case sound system
June 16, 2019 / By Cheyenne
Question: I had opened a question yesterday, located here: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20140330131629AAY6YJY In it i asked for help upgrading my computer. After reading what the respondent wrote (Thaalib) i decided it would be easier and cheaper to just build a computer from scratch. However, i am on a SEVERELY low budget, so i am here to put up the parts i am planning on buying and asking you hopefully-professional people what you think of the rig and if you could answer a few questions involving it! This is the case i wish to use: http://tinyurl.com/ldeyalc This is the best best motherboard i could find based on my budget: http://tinyurl.com/mwbjkh3 This is the CPU i found, really cheap yet very good: http://tinyurl.com/lre87xf I wish to buy two of these ram modules: http://tinyurl.com/lyjtew8 I have wireless in my house, so here is the wireless adapter: http://tinyurl.com/kk7vvfx Here is the cheap hard drive i have found (Note, i do not need a crap-load of memory as i will still be using my laptop: http://tinyurl.com/kg2ub3a I'm not aiming for 100+FPS on games, i am really happy with 30+ since i been playing games like warframe, call of duty and even minecraft between 5 and 15 FPS for years. I already have a nvidia GTX 260 and a 500w power supply, but do i need a USB card or a sound card? The case says it comes with ports for audio and usb, so does that mean it comes with the cards? Anyway, let me know what you think of this and any advice!

Looks pretty good! Make sure you get the cables you're going to need unless you already have them. Don't forget the cable that connects the USB ports on the top of that case to the motherboard, or you won't be able to use them. What about the operating system? Windows 7 OEM is about 80 bucks from TigerDirect, if you don't already have it. No, a sound card and USB card aren't necessary. 4 GB of RAM should be alright, but 1 or 2 more would be a good investment. One more thing: Your hard drive is a bit small. Remember that many games now a days exceed 15 GB (Battlefield 4, TF2, etc.) and they're only getting bigger. Your operating system will also take up about 15 GB. I suggest that you get a smaller SSD, like 32 GB, put your Operating system and the programs you use the most on it (Steam, Chrome, etc.) and install your games onto another hard drive, like a 250 GB. But you know best how many games you're going to play, and if you think 128 GB is enough, by all means get that SSD - that's a great price for it, not to mention SSDs are much faster than traditional hard drives. I wish you the best of luck Edit: You should also get some fans (2 or 3) for your case. 2.4 ghz wifi will do just fine, there's no need to pay extra money for something you don't need. 128 GB will fit much more than 2 games, at least 15 I'd say, depending on the games. You can always expand later if necessary. The price after rebates for the case you've chosen is extremely good, and has tons of room for future upgrades. The processor is also fine. You have nothing to worry about, it'll run most if not all modern day games for at least the next 5 years before needing an upgrade.

BUILDING A GAMING PC. do you have what it takes to build your own pc? it's not as hard as most people will try to tell you it is and with a little research and a few hours of reading you will be able to gain the knowledge of how the whole process works. there are alot of good sites around that have great articles and videos that will help to show you how to put a system together step by step. for a better understanding of what a gaming pc is and what specs/parts you should aim to use, try these keywords in a google search "building a gaming pc" & "budget gaming pc" and read some of the articles that show up, but to help you save some time i have also included a few of the links that i found to be very help full. link 1. this site was packed with loads of good info but involves a lot of reading but as a result when you have read as much as you can then you will have a better understanding of what it is that you are trying to build. http://www.build-gaming-computers.com/in... link2. this link will take you to a great set of videos on youtube that show all the steps of building a computer, there is seven separate movie that show you a few steps at a time. i would also suggest downloading realplayer 11 if you don't already have it so you can download and save these movies to your computer for future reference. http://au.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=7... to download realplayer: http://www.download.com/RealPlayer/3000-... The next 3 links are all to the maximum pc website and are updated every few months i think. link 3.$500 http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/build_a_500_pc_play_crysis_40fps?page=0%2C2 link 4.$800 http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/how_build_a_kickass_800_gaming_pc link 5.$1500 http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/1500_gaming_pc_buyers_guide_updated_prices_and_parts_march_2009 and if after reading all the above you are not you are still a bit uncertain about taking on a build yourself you can always talk to friends that may have done it before and ask for there help, or take a parts list into a few computer shops in your local area and see what prices they can give you for building the system that meets your needs, also searching the keywords "good computer shops in (add your home town here )" in Google and look through some of the forums to see what people are saying about the computer stores in your local area to see which ones may be the best to go to by the comments that others have left. i hope that the above information will help you in achieving your goal.

Judging by your grammar, I'd say you're going to have a tough time understanding computer technologies.

cpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as... motherboard + ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealD... or http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealD... hdd: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236339 case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146102 wireless: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833704133 (promo code makes it $32) first, the amd apus are not good for anything except on super low budget computer which are NOT going to use a graphics card. the intel Pentium G3220 is DRASTICALLY better. any H81 motherboard is fine, there isnt much benefit in getting expensive motherboards. ram there isnt much difference in either. you can get one stick now, and buy another 4GB stick later if you wish. a 128GB SSD will hold 2 games total lol you dont get a SSD if its your only means or storing data, and you dont buy a SSD when your budget is under like $800. its nice, but it does NOTHING for gaming performance. that case you have is $70 (it has $20 shipping, and mail in rebates take 2 months to get), the nzxt 210 is a great low budget case, there is one with and without the window. the one with window linked above has a $15 mail in rebate and is the same base price. you may want to pick up a 120mm fan and put it as an intake (arrows on fan show airflow direction) of the front of the case. since you should have atleast 1 intake and 1 exhaust fan. lastly the wireless. its stupid to buy a 2.4ghz wireless adapter now days. 5ghz wifi is 1000x better. so getting one which can use 2.4ghz and 5ghz wireless is really the only option.

for $500 this is going to be near impossible. You'll have to make some tough decisions. I wouldn't say that amd is better for gaming anymore now that intel has released their conroe based core duo chips. AMD however is a better bargain chip right now. You'll have to hunt for some deals and this might take some time to find all the deals you'll need on a $500 budget. look for a motherboard and cpu combo. Just to put things in perspective for a good gaming video card you're looking for atleast $250 for a lower end one capable of running that program how you want to. On top of that a decent cpu motherboard combo will probably run you $250, but you can find an acceptable one for around $200, so that's $450, you still need a good power supply, and ram, I'd suggest 2gb so another $180-$200. You'll also need a cd drive, and a hard drive, tack on another $80-$150 depending on quality and capacity. I would say a reasonable goal for a budget gaming pc would be atleast $800. Resources to use are of course the local ads in the newspaper, as well as sites like http://www.resellerratings.com and http://www.pricewatch.com If you don't care about ordering online I highly suggest http://www.newegg.com their prices are always on the low end and theiur customer service is amazing. It's also easy to compare and make wish lists to get the most out of your money.
