HEy guys my dad has a cybercafe with computer with following specifications:
1GB RAM,Intel Dual Core PRocessor 2.60 Ghz,NVIDIA 8400GS GPU , 14.8 inch LCD monitor , ASUS P5 KPLAM/PS
I have games like - BUrnout PAradise ,GTA san Andreas, Crysis(have to run with lowest specs), Crysis Warhead(not installed yet!!),NFS most wanted (works fine),NFS carbon (works fine), Counter strike 1.6.
My Burnout Paradise crashed after 2 minutes into the game on one PC(with low level of detail and high res)
when i tried it on another pc it ran properly until i tried to chane my car(first blue one) into a better version by going into the wreck house or something). it crashed.
I started it again worked fine but still lags a bit.
Should I upgrade my GPU? or my RAM ..... processor .....??????PLZ HELP.
I am trying to bring a ASUS ARES soon for my personal use but i wont get good service here as it is liquid cooled.Should I bring it or not? Or a assembled computer is better???? Give some specificaions which can run all HIGH RES games like Assasin's Creed 2 . PLZ Help A.S.A.P. Thank you
I would say for the video card, definitely get an ATI 5770! Cheap but huge! It has GDDR5 and Direct X 11. It can also run three monitors which is awesome for Crysis!
Thanks Dude but I dont like ATI bcoz all its GPUs r not available here.And mine is of MSI but has NVIDIA logo on it with 8400 GS written on its box.that's a bit confusing . I think it has PCB of MSI but the main chipset of NVIDIA.
And anyway what about ARES .... is it better or a assembled computer??????
An ATI card will run just fine on a motherboard with an Nvidia chipset.
You will definitely want more ram. 1gb is very low for a current gaming machine. The 8400GS is also very poor for gaming. The HD5770 was probably the best recommendation but if you really want to buy Nvidia look for a GTS 250 or GTX 260.
i am yet to get an ARES ..... so i am asking is ARES better or an assembled computer better???
I need to know the ARES model and the assembled computer parts to tell you which one is better.
A game killer PC will have at least core i7 CPU (with minimum 2.66GHz speed), a 5870 GPU and 6GB 1600MHz RAM at a 3x2GB tripple channel configuration. This rig will run games at 1920x1200 resolution with high settings.
If you want to play games on medium-high settings you will have to upgrade your GPU and add 1GB of RAM. For your current CPU (Intel Dual Core PRocessor 2.60 Ghz), the suitable Nvidia cards are 9600GT, 8800GT, 9800GT, 9800GTX, 9800GTX+, GTS250 (listed in performance order from weakest to powerful). Your CPU will bottleneck better Nvidia cards. 512MB memory is enuogh for your screen.
The avarage price of the 9600GT is about 5000 INR.
The avarage price of the 9800GT is about 5700 INR.
The avarage price of the GTS250 is about 7300 INR.
Yes, this isn't the right forum for questions about an entire build. But for that kind of budget in general you should be looking at an i7-920 system, 6 gigs of DDR3 ram, a 1920x1080/1200 monitor and an HD5870(ebay it if you can't find one locally.)
For that money you may even be able to get a bit fancy with things like a solid state hard drive and/or a bluray burner.
