Hi guys i have two 9600s GT , and i get an issuie in game most games that when they arnt to stressed they do fine but when they start having to kick it up a notch my speakers begin to screech just a tad during games like BSP and ETW. I dont understand why becuase it use to didnt do that with one card it would just lag like hell if it couldnt handel it but i know two 9600 GTs SLIed can handel ETW on ULTRA with 4x or at least High settings. I dont understand what is happening please help me i would really like to take advantage of the situation.

Your CPU is a massive bottlekneck - even a celeron E1200 would blow that cpu (and no one seriously does gaming with celerons etc) - time to upgrade that oven you got.

What exactly would be a bottle neck and so forth? I am so sorry for dumb questions but i know how to handel and work with computers to a degree i dont know much about other technology or stuff like that , i just do things when i need to , again i apologize for my retardedness :)

dn't worry bro, I'm a noob too and I asked a lot of dumber questions than you did. That's why there are forums like this to clear our doubts. What apache_lives means by "your CPU bottlenecking your performance" is that the because of the old CPU and its performance limitations the graphics cards and other components are not being utilized to their capability. So if you get a better CPU, it can utilize the GPU's to their full extent, and that the CPU is the loose end in your system, at least when it comes to gaming. @pros, correct me if I'm wrong coz I too got hold of the hardware tech very recently.

One more thing , do you think i can get my computer cheaper and just as good as alien ware laptop self built? I have a friend that builds computers and he could help me out , but what do you think better to by it market or build yourself?

To sum up, I would not find anybody recommending a branded machine over the one that we can build by ourselves, for the simple reason that the branded systems cost a fortune over similar/better configured systems that are self built. Since you've got a friend helping you out, it's very much out of the point to think of buying a branded system. But are you going for a laptop or a desktop? As for the desktop branded system's pretty much out of the question and as for laptops I can't say as I myself don't own a lappy, though the configurations for branded laptops are also improving by the day.

if you are going for a laptop, i would suggest getting one built for you, doing that yourself would be pretty expensive

with a desktop, make it yourself
