By "build" I mean have a list of necessary computer parts written up that will be good for competitive online gaming for years to come and at the same time will be affordable for a college student working at Wal-Mart as a "4-star Cashier".

That's right, I'm better than the other cashiers. Surely that means something this day and age where nobody is supposed to care about their job (the modern American Way).

Please make me that list. Chop-chop!

You forgot two things:

1) 16MB Diamond Viper V550 AGP 2X video card
2) Micro$oft Windows Moron Edition

If you want us to build you a computer, you might want to give a budget and tell what you'll be using it for.
June 30, 2006 3:18:58 AM

$1500 and competitive online gaming. If I get any lag I'm coming after you with a stick I found in my yard. It ends sharply on one side.

If it wasn't for your smartass attitude, I'd take the time to suggest 2 or 3 options. Instead, I'll be like you: lazy. And my kid, using the box we built after doing our own shopping, comparing and THINKING, will own your lazy butt when you get your lame box online.

What are the pros and cons of dual-core processors today? Will they play current games well? I heard some peeps were having technical difficulties with dual-cores.
June 30, 2006 3:41:24 AM

You work at Wal-Mart and still have a $1,500 budget???????????????

I'm lazy so you can copy my computer. Look it up on the forums.
June 30, 2006 10:14:14 AM

As you can probably see, we're nay very helpful to those whom make comments like "I'm lazy, do <something> for me"

So, we're lazy, look up your own god damned computer spec. Then, once you've done that come back and post it up, so we can show you that we can be helpful in troubleshooting what be hot, and what be not.....

Did you read the other 15 identical threads on the front page of the forum? Actually, considering the law of averages, one of them was probably a Wal-mart employee as well.
June 30, 2006 4:00:46 PM

haha, walmart...haha...1500 bucks is like 350 hours of cart chasing in the parking lot...better ask Santa for a new comp at X-mas lil buddy.
June 30, 2006 4:10:28 PM

Sheesh lighten up people he was only joking around...

Depending on what you're looking for you may want an AMD based system since they usually perform better in games. Another thing is that in less then a month prices will be cut on AMD and Intel processors and therefore you may want to hold out and wait for that. Anyways, here's an Intel based system.

Intel Pentium D 940 Presler 800MHz FSB LGA 775 Dual Core
+
OCZ Gold 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) (combo deal)
$397.98

Intel BOXD975XBXLKR Socket T (LGA 775) (support for Conroe and crossfire)
$249.99

ASUS EAX1900XT/2DHTV/512 Radeon X1900XT 512MB GDDR3
$374.99

Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-480 BLUE ATX12V 480W Power Supply
$79.99

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KSRTL 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
$119.99

COOLER MASTER Centurion 532 RC-532-SKN1 Black Aluminum bezel, SECC chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
$77.99

LITE-ON 16X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE Model SHW160P6S05
$32.99

Total:
$1,333.92 before shipping & taxes


This is just a sampling from newegg.com, you didn't specify if you needed a monitor or keyboard and mouse. Different parts can be had at cheaper prices at different places (I saw the motherboard quite a bit cheaper at tigerdirect.com) so if you shop around for specific parts you might get a better deal but have to pay more for shipping.

This would be a decent performer with the ability to upgrade to Conroe processors when they come out and add in another graphics card if you want in the future.

Hope that helps a bit or at least puts you in the right direction.

You're right...we should lighten up...and to show that I'm sincere...I recommend that erik_tilton buy one of those e-Machines from Wal-Mart...with his employee discount , he should be able to pick it up for about $400...show some loyalty and support for the company he works for...

Maybe with your "lofty" position at work you've gotten used to ordering people around. That won't get you very far in the real world. I'd suggest a bit more respect and humility (and maybe even a bit more effort on your part) if you actually want to get some help. As you can see... nobody really cares.

Not likely in today's market.

My advice: do a bit of reading. Then, decide if you want an AMD or Intel system, dual core or single core, and whether you want to overclock or not. If you need HELP doing this, we'll probably be happy to help you, but we won't just do it for you. Also, it might be useful to know specifically which games you play and/or are looking to play.
Its all a learning experience.

Oh... I see you've already asked a meaningful question. Dual cores don't cause problems per-se, its just that modern games aren't written to take advantage of both processor cores so the game runs on only one of them. Thus, as technology stands today a fast single core is better than a dual core, at least for gaming.
If you're looking for the best price on parts I'd try checking Pricegrabber.com.

In the spirit of Lazy+gaming=useless I'll sell you my Aptiva Pentium 133 computer which was a great deal in 1995 for the low low low 1995 price of $1500.. It's bursting with 24megs of ram. a 1.2gig harddrive, 4x cd-rom, and integrated graphics with 2MB! or ram, ugradeable to 4MB! With this demon screamer you can play all the best titles like King Quest and Moon Patrol

Gotta use your PCI slot for something, right? ;) 
July 2, 2006 2:04:16 AM

You guys can laugh all you want, but I had (until recently) a Trident (1 MB) PCI video card, keeping it just in case, and the time came when I needed it. So I used it again, after.... 5 or 6 years. :lol: 

I was looking for a Voodoo, just to play some old games I always wanted, with support only for Glide. Unfortunately, I didn't found one (at least one working). :(

July 2, 2006 2:52:06 AM

Weird how anyone comes to this thread feels lazy...same here. Oh well I'll just smack my head :p 

And yo topic starter (too lazy to find out your name) I suggest you wait for Conroe or at least wait for the prices to drop for AMD which is around the release time of Conroe. And since either way you gotta wait, might as well wait for Conroe instead. But if not, then here is a good AM2 system assuming if you have a monitor. By the way, the smack helps :wink:

Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Full tower Case ($149.99)
Antec SmartPower 2.0 500W Power Supply ($63.99)
Asus M2N-E AM2 Motherboard ($95.99)
Western Digital Raptor 74GB 10,000 RPM Hard drive ($169.99-$139.99 with $30 mail-in rebate)
NEC 16X DVD drive ($38.99)
SONY Internal Floppy Drive ($7.99)
OCZ Gold Series 2GB (2x1GB) DDR2-667 Memory ($188.99-$148.99 after $40 mail-in rebate)
AMD Athlon X2 4600+ AM2 Processor ($585.00)
eVGA Geforce 7900GT KO Superclocked 256MB Video card ($289.99)

All this comes to a total of around $1520. If you plan on getting a monitor and some other accessories with this system, then switch the video card and processor to:

eVGA Geforce 7900GT CO 256MB Video card ($269.99)
AMD Athlon X2 4200+ AM2 Processor ($358.99)

If you do switch it to those, you have about $240 to buy a monitor and something else but you can't really get much with $240 so let's say you have $300 more to spend (total of $1600) Then you can buy a nice ViewSonic 2ms 19" LCD Monitor and a Logitech G5 Laser Mouse. And man if you do buy this system, you will be set for at least 3 years. Of course I suggest you wait for Conroe or at least price drops for AM2 (When conroe releases)

Man this took long. This is like the 1st serious post in these whole 2 pages.
July 2, 2006 2:56:06 AM

Hey watch it super noob or I may say Hitler or something as low as that! I might have had that guy going on the TI-30 till you came along!

Nevermind the TI-30 since that is a lap top. This is the baby for you! The Sharp QT-8D super desktop. The best part is if you press "7734" on the QT-8D you can turn it over and read hell. Amazing isn't it?

1st. I Loved Working At Wal-Mart
2Nd. Im Stuck At Working At Hy-Vee Wahhhhhhh!!!! And I Managed To Build The $1800.00 Machine Below In My Sig
3Rd. Id Suggest

CPU: Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (If You Want A Dual-Core) Or For A Single-Core Id Suggest A 3700+ Or Better
CPU Cooler: The Stock Ones Are Sufficiant, But Id Reccomend An Aftermarket Cooler
RAM: 2GB Of PC3200 Or Better (Get The Maximum Speed That You Can Afford Without Sacrificing For Inferior/Unworthy Parts For The Rest Of The Machine
Video-Card: Any Good Manufactuers Nvidia Geforce 7900GT
Hard Drive: Any Good (Western Digital!) SATA With A Capacity Over 100MB An 8MB Cache Is Strongly Reccomended
CD/DVD Burner: Most Of Them Are Fine, Just Make Sure It Has A 16x Write Speed For DVD+/-Rs And That It Matches Your Case (Black Works)
Case: Look At www.xoxide.com For A Good Low Priced Case That You Like With Good Ventilation
Keyboard: A Good Decent Quality Keyboard (Your Choice Just Dont Be An Idiot And Spend $80.00 On A Keyboard When A $20.00 Is Just As Good
Mouse: A4Tech Wirless Battery-Free Mouse (Trust Me You Will Love It)

If you live anywhere near me (see my location :wink: ), or at least in the same country, that could be possible. :D
