Preferred Solution: Is the CPU good on this computer for gaming?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Is the CPU good on this computer for gaming?

I'd say it's a good CPU, but note that you won't be able to upgrade it in the future as it is soldered onto the motherboard.

I thought this forum would be best to ask if this computer i am going to build would be good enough to play all the newer games with graphics up and no lag...

Here is the motherboard and cpu i am getting:

Its a 1.7 ghz cpu but i think it can be overclocked to almost 3ghz.

I will be getting a 40 gb hard drive, dvd drive and 512mb of ddr ram...

The video card i get will most likely be:

VGA APOLLO GF4 MX440 SE 128mb DDR W/TV Retail
Chipset:Nvidia Geforce4 MX440SE
Memory:128MB DDR
Memory Bandwidth: 1.3 GB/sec
4.8 Billion AA samples per second fill rate
350 MHz internal RAMDAC
4 texels per clock cycle
32-bit color with 32-bit Z/Stencil buffer
Ports VGA + S-video Out

I will be getting it from for $71.

Now will this be good enough to play battlefield 1942 with the graphics and textures all the way up and no lag?

Thanks for your help...

Price? It's probably overpriced Alienware junk, even if 2nd hand. GTX 660 isn't gonna let you max out games at 1920x1080, and it can't be upgraded.

Buying computer from Best buy you are stuck with brand name computer like Acer or Gateway being very cheap computers and low budget computers or HP or Asus being better and more costly computers.

CyberPowerPC and iBUYPOWER Gamerner PC both are over price and not reliable computer and lots and of lots hardware problems from what I read and really outdated spects for it's price.
Well build computer kits are good, but you have to put it together and you get no software and windows 8 does not come with it.

RAM: 8.00gb
System type: 64-bit operating system, x64 based processor
Graphics card: AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series

Answer:Is this a good computer for gaming?

Ok, firstly this depends on what games and the settings you'll run.
CPU: Be aware the i7-3770 doesn't have 8 cores but 4 cores (8 threads). Any i7 quad-core with above 3GHz is gonna be fine with games.
RAM: This is where games with a lot going on in them is going to suffer. I'd personally always recommend 16GB RAM for gaming rigs, but it depends on your budget and you can alway upgrade late if you use a 2x8GB set.
Your graphics card will run games but not at high/ultra settings if you want playable fps. Check here for a comparison against other cards.
If you have any other questions about your rig, please feel free to ask. Hardware & specs are my strong point.

The first link goes to a computer that most people wouldn't consider a gaming since it has a pretty low end Radeon HD 6450 that simply can't handle most modern games.

I was wondering if this would be a decent gaming computer. I looked around on the net a lot and most suggestions I find are only for the newest most banging computers, but I am on a bit of a budget, which attracted me to this one in the first place.

Should I be worried about the fact that this is refurbished? Again I googled Gateway computers and got a lot of stories of their computers going man down just after the warranty expires, and the fact this only has 3 months on it kinda worries me, but it does seem like a decent computer.

Please comment the specs

Answer:A good gaming computer

That is a good place to have a computer built as far as specs go there is no computer specs that have to be met, a good PSU is good in any machine, a reasonable mobo is needed in any machine. I prefer ASUS but they will be the highest if top of the line. if u are going to overclock make sure it is over clockable and make sure the processor is over
clockcable and yes they both have the ability, although the board will just put the # down. any video card will play games, but the newer ones should give u more frames, and last longer. as far as the processor AMD or Intel will be fine. and that site will e-mail u if the MOBO and processor will not work together.

Do you think it could handle these games? Not on all highest settings but at least Moderate for most of them, low to Medium for Skyrim.

P.S I'm on a budget so please don't make me feel too bad about this new computer


Answer:Is this computer any good for gaming?

Which video card are you opting to get with it? The default Intel HD 2500 integrated graphics are not likely sufficient for Skyrim beyond low settings, and may even struggle with that.

Any of the other cards, non of which are considered a gaming graphics card and are odd-ball custom OEM cards designed for the weak power supply in the computer, would likely give you the low to medium for Skyrim.

All the rest of games are less demanding.

Answer:How good is my computer specification for gaming?

When using fraps you want the recorded video files to be made on a separate HDD than the one that is running the games. As for your computer it should hand just about any game on mid settings.

Those should be fine for gaming. However, for your CPU I would change to a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane. That CPU is faster dispite the slower clock speed. Not to mention it overclocks better and and runs cooler. And if possible upgrade to the eVGA e-GeForce 7900 GS KO 256MB.

Another note: Don't use the power supply that comes with that case, buy one seperate.

Thanks!

Answer:Is This Type of Computer Good for Gaming?

The 4530s was and is a pretty good laptop, we have quite a lot at work and IMO they're excellent, very sturdy.  The models with integrated Intel graphics are not however designed for gaming, they'll handle older games more or less OK but if you can, look for a laptop with a dedicated GPU - the 4530s did come with AMD graphics options so you may be able to find one.I will say two things though - the 4530s is a few years old so I would hope it's not too expensive, and laptops are not really ideal for gaming, I would advise a desktop unless you absolutely need the mobility.

hi everyone, i am looking for help! i am soon going to build a gaming computer and i want to get as good setup as possible... so please if you have any idea of any setup good gaming setup please let me know thanks a lot! 

Answer:Best gaming computer? plz come up with setups you think is good!

Well First off the big issue would be How much you want to spend? Then it will go from there. There are plenty of setups and TONS of hardware out there but if your talking BEST of the BEST you can get up to the high thousands pretty quick. Me personally Im running something I built for about 800 bucks plays Crysis Warcraft and tons of games at pretty good frames rates. But if your rich and want that sort of thing more power to you. THe first thing i look at when I build a comp is how long can I use this before I gotta start upgrading. once you figure those out and determine your cost what you wanna do with it and how long you plan to keep it then its not about what everyone thinks is the best..its whats best for you. Hope this helps

Answer:Good specs for a new gaming computer

Well, those games will not require anything hard core in terms of specs. But, to answer your question, it all depends on the particular games you play and, at what resolution you like to play at. So, no-one will be able to give you a one size fits all gaming spec. But, here is what I'd look for:
Quad Core CPU, 4GB RAM,Dedicated GPU and 7200rpm HDD.

Answer:I really need help , please... Will this computer work and be good for gaming?

Here are a few pointers, do not buy it as it currently is:CPU and motherboard is okay.That video card is not suitable for gaming.  For gaming you need something from the NVIDIA GeForce line.  On a budget I wouldn't go below the GeForce 750.Don't bother with a separate CPU cooler, use the stock one.  The money can be spent better elsewhere.Most important: Do not even think about that power supply, those low end units are dangerous pieces of junk.  It will never come close to producing 750w and will have most/all safety features removed to cut costs, not to mention the poor quality components.  It's cheap for a reason.For a PC like that up to a GeForce 750ti video card, this PSU would be sufficient: 450W XFX Pro Core Edition.  If you were to go for a higher end video card you would probably want to go up to the 550w version of this.

Hello everyone!

I am graduating with my B.S. this Friday and my parents asked me what I wanted for a graduation present and jokingly I said a new computer... and they went for it. So now I'm in a pickle of sorts... cause I do want one. The one I am using now is about 6+ years old, it is running ok but obviously is becoming quite inferior. This computer was custom built with my friend's help so was pretty good at the time it was made.

Now I am about to engage heavily into computer gaming with SW The Old Republic coming out, and will probably also play Diablo 3 when that is released... so I am hoping to get a computer which can handle these games on the highest settings...
That being said however my dad is pretty firm about getting a computer from Best Buy or some type of retail seller... IIRC this is frowned upon by most computer experts or at least for those who build their own...

Can I get your advice as to good models for the kind of gaming I will be doing? Or at least the minimum specs I should be looking at, or things/brands to avoid when picking one out? I was really hoping to get something relatively top-of-the-line but I don't think the budget could exceed $2K.

Answer:Specs for a good gaming retail computer?

Best Buy do sell computer components so you're not limited to buying a prebuilt (ugh).

No Best Buy in my country, but a quick look at the site shows you can build a pretty good system for that budget. Bear in mind you could save around $500-600 by going with a more basic setup:
Intel 2500K CPU+ Gigabyte Z68 motherboard + 8GB RAM $649
Power supply: Corsair TX650M $100
Windows 7 x64 Home Premium (OEM) $110
Chassis : Corsair Carbide 500R $122. You can save ~$40-60 by going with a more basic case.
Hard drive: WD Cav Black 1TB $150 (Prices are obscenely high at the moment)
HP DVD rewriter $30
Basic component cost (so far) : $1141
Graphics card. If you aren't planning on upgrading again in the short/medium term, then I'd suggest spending enough to see you through the current and upcoming game releases.
XFX HD 6950 1GB $243.

Monitor...Your choices are a cheaper TN+film panel, or a more expensive IPS panel which offers better color range (gamut) but may have higher latency (detectable ghosting with fast motion).
HP's 2511x (25", 1980x1080) is a very nice TN based LED panel ($230) or
HP's ZR24W (24", 1980x1200) is a very nice IPS based panel ($405)

Total: $1634 or $1809

Peripherals, if you don't already have them:
Mouse : Razer DeathAdder 3500 ($60) -Highly recommended. I use one myself- very nice ergonomics and fully featured.
Keyboard: Razer Arctosa ($50)
Mouse pad : Razer gaming pad ($15)

Hey everyone,
I'm brand new to the forums but I've heard a lot of good things about this one so I thought I'd look for advice here. Here's a bit of background so you understand my question: I'm a mac user mostly, as a musician I mainly use it for Logic, and I also do the rest of my college work on it, however I'm fully aware of it's lacking in the games department. Recently a mod for the game ArmA 2 came out called DayZ, I was so happy that a zombie game like this had come out I became determined to get it.
I then discovered ArmA doesn't run on Macs, and so tried the family computer; an Acer Aspire AX3400, but after 10 hours of downloading from Steam, I found it didn't quite have the specs to run the game at a playable rate. So I decided I need a new PC, just for me, and just for gaming, with a preferred budget of £600.
I've looked around and found things that tick certain boxes with me but I have to admit I just don't know enough to make a £600 decision, I'd really like to have an Intel i7 processor or it's AMD equivalent, but the rest I have to say I don't have a clue about. If you don't think £600 is enough, please say as I can go over the budget by another few hundred, but it would mean sacrificing driving lessons for another year, and that's something I'd rather not do.
Thanks in advance, and sorry for the long post.

Answer:Can I buy a good Gaming PC for £600?

To be honest £600 is pushing it a bit, not impossible, but tricky. You do not say whether this £600 will need to cover operating system,monitor keyboard and mouse? Also apart from ArmA 2 mods what other games do you like to play?
Are you looking to future proof, though that's really a misnomer as it is pretty difficult to future proof a PC. But I assume you will be wanting the PC to be able to play games for a couple of years or so to come?
If you can provide answers to the above I will have a look about.

Historically a message in a bottle is a form of communication whereby a message is sealed in a container (archetypically a glass bottle, but could be any medium, so long as it floats and remains waterproof) and released into the sea or ocean. The phrase "message in a bottle" literally comes from the practice of placing an important but untargeted letter inside a (usually) glass bottle, sealing it, and allowing ocean currents to carry it away. There are indications that ancient Greek scientists used the message in a bottle to study the general flow of oceans and early militaries also used bottles to relay messages to distant troops, although this method did have a few tactical drawbacks.

Hello, hi i just bought this laptop about 2 days or so ago, and i was wondering would these components in it be good for a game called Dragonica Online? because i play and it seems to lagg and i dont know what the problem is so here is what my info says:

Model: HP G61 Notebook PC

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II Dual-Core M300 2.00 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 3.00 GB (2.75 GB usable) (i already have the game installed)

System type: 64-bit Operating System

Now i installed it the first day and it ran so smoothly but here is what else i have well this is what Cpu-z tells me anyways.

Clocks (Core #0):

Core Speed: 798.0 MHz


Bus Speed: 199.5 MHz

HT Link: 1595.9 MHz

L2 Cache: 2 x 512 KBytes (16-Way)

Answer:Would this be good for gaming?

Laptops in general are not designed for gaming, and your ATI Mobility Radeon 4200 is probably only designed for some HD video and very light gaming. I've never heard of Dragonica Online, but I assume it's just a MMORPG and doesn't sound like a very demanding game, so you may want to check your internet connection/wireless card to see if that's causing the lag.

Certainly much cheaper than even the lowest AMD X2...

I am looking at this PC for gaming but I don't want to pay much and I was looking around and I was wondering if this was a OK gaming computer it has

Processor 2.80GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core
RAM, standard 3GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM
Hard Drive details 400GB 7200RPM SATA
NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE

I know it would need a new grphics card (I was looking at a nvida 9600 GT) but other than that is it ok

Answer:Is this a good gaming PC?

Yes but it would be better with 4 GB of Ram instead of 3 GB.

Im building a gaming PC at the moment and i have got this case: Casecom Black Midi Tower Case - Cheap at Ebuyer! and this is the PSU im gona be buying : CIT 750W Dual 12V Rail 12cm Fan PSU - 2x SATA 1x PCI-E - Ebuyer as this has 7 molex as well as 2 SATA which i need only thing i was worried about was the fan it has on top of the PSU will it be ok and not over heat as the PSU sits at the top of the case covering it. Also soes it seem like an ok PSU for price. Thanks for any help you can give.

Answer:Is This PSU good enough for a gaming rig?

The PSU needs to be mounted so that the fan is underneath and not on top. That way, it pulls the warm air from within the case and vents it away from your system through the PSU, with the air exiting your system through the grid of holes on its rear panel.

Answer:new p.c good for gaming????

Firstly you don't need to put every single spec down, especially things it doesn't have. Secondly should this be in the games section?Yes this is a good spec for a computer, and there's no games at the moment that this won't be able to play with decent graphics, and almost none that you won't be able to play at full. In all a very powerful system, that has pretty much the best of everything, short of monstrously expensive graphics cards that aren't worth it. And PC6400 Ram instead of PC8500, but you won't notice the difference. Make sure you get a 64-bit operating system or you'll only see 3 of those 4GB. All in all this is a very fast computer that is reasonably well priced.However I feel inclined to tell you that your budget is probably too high, and that when you go over about £750 you tend to get a bit ripped off. Aim for the same processor and just one 8800GT and you could save about £250, and only notice about 7-8fps difference. I would also suggest perhaps building one for yourself with this kind of money. I could build this system for about £850, although you have to be clever where you buy from. I also believe there's a bit too much one-upmanship in the technology that there's no need for: a 19" screen is still massive and another way to save money. But don't build your own unless you know what your doing. If something goes wrong you have saved nothing and no-one can bail you out.One last thing is i think this is a cyberpower system? I was turned off them due to d... Read more

Graphic card: Asus GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5
PSU: XFX TS Series 550W

Processor: AMD Black Edition - AMD FX 6350

I'll have to pay around 873 euros for this PC. This includes Windows 7, 1 year warranty, anti virus (Bullguard Anti Virus), and a Sharkoon gaming set (keyboard and mouse).

Is this worth it? Can I play games like League of Legends with no lag? Is it a good pc for its price?? Any advice is much appreciated since I don't have that much knowledge on PCs. I thank you in advance for helping me!

Answer:Will this be a good gaming PC?

Well that price translates to about 1200 US dollars. IMO you can build a much better pc for that price. I would check out TS's PC buying guide. Their enthusiast level machine seems like a much better deal than the one you posted. Check it out here:

Minus the sound card and maybe a cheaper case it is about the same price as the one you posted.

Hi all,

I have a intel Q9505 CPU on a Intel mobo with 4gb mem (I will upgrade to 8Gb mem). I was wondering if I can just get a good video card for gaming or do you guys suggest a total new PC?

Answer:Good enough for gaming?

LGA775 is dying but if you are strapped for cash, spending $160-200 (assuming your PSU is adequate) on a card would keep you going awhile. To give you a performance reference, the Core2 Quad performs on par with the current i3's. If current gaming benchmark's of the i3 is satisfactory, then you are good for awhile. If you think you need i5 or better performance, then a new system would be recommended.

If you look at my sig, is this PC good for gaming? Because I have been having a hard time with certain games. Doom 3 works well for the most part but will lag up during combat when there is a lot of shadowing and dynamic lighting going on. As well as post processing effects like bluring and such. Now Far Cry seems to be slow ALL the TIME. Half Life 2 on the other hand works like a charm with everything turned ALL the way up. I am thinking that it might be my Video Card causing me all this grief cause the rest of my specs always seem to fall well within the recomended specs for each game. Can anyone suggest any changes to my System to improve performance for games.

Decent, 9500 GT is a bit weak for modern gaming though. Also, the 400W power supply has to be of high quality to really be enough for that. Corsair, OCZ, Enermax, Seasonic, Silverstone, PC Power & cooling...

With regards to the graphics card, you may want to wait a few months for the Radeon 5xxx series, they should be cheaper per performance, more energy efficient, and will have DX 11 capability...

An idea

If you go to ebuyer/newegg/scan or any major hardware you can price up all of the parts individually. Then you could see the total and you would know if you are getting a bargain or not.

From the spec I would think that you would have a great time with gaming on that rig.

Hi, I was in Best Buy yesterday browsing for a new comp for hours trying to fit in a $1000 budget and I think I found a pretty solid comp. I'm not an extreme gamer and don't expect to have top of the line comps like some of you dedicated gamers but I'd like a comp that'll just run smoothly and solidly in todays newest games. To be honest, I'm a little worried that my proccesor maybe a little outdated and when I get a new comp, I usually don't upgrade for another 3 years or so. Here are my specs:

Compaq Presario
AMD Atlon XP 3200+
Windows XP Home
2.2 GHz
200 gig HD
512 MB DDR SD pc 2700 Ram (will upgrade to 1gig next month)
256 MB BFG GeForce FX 5500 OC AGP Vid Card
17" Flat Screen Compaq (will upgrade to 17" flat panel next month)
Double CD Drive + DVD/CD Writer
1MB L2 Cache
Compaq keyboard and mouse (will upgrade to optical next month)
Labtec headset

That's all I know for now, if you need more specs just tell me. So what do you guys think, good enough for gaming?

Answer:Is this good enough for gaming?

It would seem ok to me, your specs are very similar to mine except you have AMD instead of Intel. Not sure about your graphics card but it is 256 mb,so i'm assuming it's good.Your right about your processor, i have to upgrade mine as well. But after saying that i have no problem playing any game that is out right now. Hope this gives some insight....

I have been pricing up gaming PCs for a while now, a good couple of years now but I've never actually got one because I've never really understood all the parts and what you need but also because I've been an Xbox player and all my mates played with me on my 360. Now that next gen consoles have come out, I've tried to persuade as many of my mates to buy a PC as opposed to the XONE or PS4, and I've finally got enough money (hopefully aha) to get a half decent gaming PC. My budget is around £800 and I've priced up one that I hope will do the job. I'm open to any suggestions for improvements, but please bare in mind that I'm on a budget and I'm not willing to build it myself :)
