Alright, time to step up to the plate and junk my old HP computer. With a GTS 250 and a Intel Celeron D 360, 4 GB RAM, and a motherboard that nobody would want to touch with a 40 foot stick, PC gaming is slim to non. At least quality gaming.
I've decided to go pre-built, and strike up a new PC build (Keep in mind, I'm an uber-noob when it comes to PC building).
Here is what I was looking at, I only plan to have 1 Processor, and 1 video card. I might double the video card, but I'm not sure I would get better performance.
We have one and it's terrific. CM often innovates first,
and then other manufacturers copy them.
I'm also a big fan of Western Digital, and strongly
recommend that you go with 2 x HDDs with 5-year warranties,
for redundancy. Just compute cost per warranty year,
and the 5-year warranty usually comes out ahead of
3-year warranties, on that metric.
I want to get a 1000 watt PSU so I can stick in 2 video cards, and thanks for the tip. That case looks smooth.
I don't really need 2 HDDs, I mean I have 1 TB in my system right now, and have more than enough stuff I know what to do with, and I'm only using 220 GB, so I think that just 1 drive (Might go with the terrabyte) should be more than enough.
I'm transferring this over to new-build, because I mis interpreted the word "Prebuilt".
Who buys prebuilt computers anymore? Lol talk about throwing your money out the window. Was looking for a prebuilt section, like not built but planed. hehe.
RAID = Reduntant Arry of Independant Discs, meaning it is several Hard drives...
Solid stae drives (SSD) are basically giant flash drives, so they have no moving parts, low power consumption, and high read speeds... essentially it gives you a "faster" feel, quicker boot times, and faster surfing...
