Hi it's me again
Sigh let's get started...
Ok, I've been wanting to get a new computer for AGES. Why you might ask? Take a look at this:
GeForce... it's below the 6 series I know that
Windows XP Home Edition SP2
Intel Pentium 4 1.5GHz
SEE WHAT I MEAN!?
Oh and beforehand it was SP1, but when I got internet, I needed SP2 for AVG-Free, and once everything was installed, the PC turtle arrived. It LITERALLY takes 9 minutes to start up and load everything on the computer! And there are messed up settings and... I need a FRESH start.
First, I'll tell you what I'm looking for in a computer:
First off, I don't mean like the 8 gigs of RAM and the Intel Core i7 cpu, I'm talking about more about an average gamer. I was planning on running something with graphics such as the Unreal Tournament 3's recommended system requirements:
-Windows XP/Windows Vista
-AMD Athlon X2 (64 X2 is same thing) 4400+
I don't know how strong I am in this interest but, I was planning on making 2D and 3D games (though I might just make 3D mods lol). I know I don't need a super computer for making 2D games, but if you take a look at one of the newest game makers (click here
), you'll notice that not even my current computer could do that. Anyways, moving on to 3D game making; I might just use something like FPS Creator, but I want a computer I can use for my college and etc. in the future when I'm MUCH BETTER. Currently, my idea was to modd for now. With probably this type of graphics lol (click here
) since I'm not that good at art.
You know, like word-processing, internet, e-mail, etc. Though I can obviously do this with any computer really
Now, my idea of the specs for this PC, would come out like this. Please note that I'm looking for a max budget of $350; $300 preferably. Oh and also some stuff can be upgraded like from a 350watt psu to 420watt psu or a GeForce 6100 to a GeForce 9500GT:
-Windows Vista Home Premium
-2GB RAM (or more)
-AMD Athlon X2 4400+ (or more)
-NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT
-160GB HDD (or more)
Now please help me find my dream computer...
HELP THE N00B!!
