  1. do you want me to build a computer for you, i tend to already have builds in this build area

    I also need to know purchase date, you should have followed build advice guidelines sir

    edit: you dont need a cpu cooler for an i3, also i will give you the option to nerf the mobo for a better gpu or not

    edit2: do you need windows?
  2. Well Good Sir, I live in Costa Rica.
    I don´t know if that would be a problem. Also the main game I play is Runescape which is java browser game, besides that the usual youtube, downloads and reading.

    I am sorry if I infringed guidelines, my Sony Vaio died today and I am using this Mac meanwhile... and well dam...

    Also I don´t need Windows I already have a W7 Ultimate CD I bougth. On a fully different note, does anyone knows if that Knoppexi or somthing like that program can recover data from a laptop that has a ´No Operating System´ error?

    Thanks again for all the help and understanding.

    Also about the buying date, I can buy it in 2 weeks at most.
  3. do you have a site in which you buy your parts from?

    Total Cost

    Sounds good but I don´t play hardcore games in mine thats what consoles are for =D
    I just want a good powerful build, with good gaming experience and speed. I havent used a PC in some time but since my lap is dead I may give it a try.
  5. the reason why i asked is because i'm not to sure if newegg ships to costa rica or not O_o

    originally i had this on newegg:

    lg 24x dvd/cd burner 18$
    WD Caviar Blue 500gb 75$
    Rosewill Blackbone + 430w Green Series
    HIS Iceq OC 6850150$
    Gskill value series 4gb 21$
    Pentium G850 + Asrock h61/u3se

    total with shipping being 479.12 leaving you to finish the build with a monitor of your choice and keyboard etc
  6. the last build was a great build for the money. it had a good video card that not going to lag you in games and a cpu that wont hold the video card back. for your hard drive in your laptop. there are free disk recovery tools and cd that can be downloaded.
    if the drive is spinging and the controller is working.
  7. Smorizo:

    It is making a clink licnk noise ocasionally, but it goes up to the part where I input my password.

    And good dude, the site in question builds the PC with the parts I choose and then send it to me, a friend here used it to build his.
  8. what i would do is pick up a usb to laptop cable..there about 15.00 here in the us. when the new system comes in pull the old hard drive out of the laptop and connect it to another pc. have some usb sticks or cd..make a folder on the other pc called laptop backup and then try and move the files from the failing drive..that clicking sound is a head crash. the drive is on it last legs..
  9. Smoeizio, dont hate me but I got half of what you said XD
    I will just bring the lap to a center and rely your helpul instructions, hopefully they will be able to help me, becaue I really dont wanna damage that info...
    500 pages of notes for a book I am writting...
    Over 1000 piano midis
    I really need those back =P

    For tonight I am off to sleep, keep coming the opinions on the build though!
