Hi there, welcome to the forums.

Well, you don't give us much to go on. We don't know what you will be doing, or what you need. Please try and come up with a rig yourself, and we can help you improve that.

Cheers!

As Striker said welcome to the forums. There really isn’t much for us to go on here; it almost sounds like you are talking about a server type system that a number of people will play games off of. That would lead to a different build then a person looking to build a home PC for gaming. So some more information would be very helpful.

hey :)  tbh i am completely unsure wot i will need so wouldn't be able to come up with my own rigs but i want it for a online game and i want to run multiple accounts at once (litteraly the maximum i can run) it will not be used for disk games that u buy at the shops etc. the game is runescape if any of you know of it and have an idea of what is needed to run it.

if this helps ^^

thanks if i need to give any more info just ask

He's planning on running around 30 runescape bots at once, and then selling the money they make for IRL cash, there was another thread before, but I can't seem to find it.......

That's what he needs it for, not a server.
July 13, 2011 6:11:55 PM

yea that^^ i remade this post cuz that one was just getting comments about runescape and jagex etc and no1 was helping so thought i would remake it, and i don't know how to delete it :\

The Intel® Core™ i7-2600K tops off at 8 threads. That means you have 4 full cores of processing power and than 4 threads being run on the leftovers that that is hyper-threading. Stating each game is being run on a single thread you would have 4 threads running very well and then 4 threads that had limited processing power and all of this is based on the idea that the game would run in a single threaded environment well. Honestly to reach the 30 bots running at once I would be looking at the low end of a dual processor set up with Intel Xeon® X5680 or X5690 but more likely a 4 processor set up to reach this level of running individual gaming environments from a single system without a lag wait for the other bots to finish before they were able to act.

i can run alot of bots from one program if this makes any difference. so you don't think there will be much difference between 4 proccessor set up to duel proccessor set up? would that mean that half the amounts of bots would run well if i use dual processor? i havn't hurd of the intel Xeon® X5680 or X5690 befor are they good for what i am looking for?

thanks

Teats21, They are server processors. The Intel® Xeon® x5680 and x5690 are designed for a dual processor server or workstation board. They are fairly expensive but each of them is a 6 core 12 thread processor giving you a total of 24 threads of total applications that you can run at one time. Then using a board like the Intel Workstation Board S5520SC http://www.intel.com/products/workstation/motherboards/....

oh well that sounds like what i would be looking for tbh, how much are we talking about when we say expensive? would i need to buy a processor for my computer then have to pay for this as a extra? the link wont let me view the page says the acces is denied but is this like a vps www.botvps.com where u play accounts through other systems not related to your computer for a monthly occuring fee?

thanks for the help its very usefull :)  i need to learn about computers lol

July 14, 2011 8:13:55 PM

The cost of these processors is around $1600 USD for each one. At the prices that botvps offer I can't see how this would be very feasible as a money making investment. Maybe you could drop down to an Intel® Xeon E5645 that go for around $550 USD but this is counting on the threads being the important issue not processoring power and since I dont know the game I can only guess.

yea the e5645 does sound like the best idea if the threads are the issue i will have to ask around on botting sites to see which is more necassary, how many threads does the e5645 run compared to the more expensive ones?

I am understanding what you are meaning but tbh i am not 100% on what you mean by threads, i get it a bit but i could be imagining somthing completely wrong lol

thanks

im going to try with guides of the internet and if i fail then i know alot of people who can do it for/with me so ill be ok.
July 15, 2011 6:23:07 PM

ok i learnt what threads are on wiki lol that sounds exactly like what i would want, while using the Intel® Xeon® x5680 (if this isn't the really expensive one) what other things would you reccomend to go with it?

thanks

anyone?
July 18, 2011 6:03:36 PM

can somebody help please i really need this computer and iv been trying to get it sorted on this site for like 2 weeks and not really got very far yet :\

do you want to build a computer or buy it already made?
July 19, 2011 8:04:54 PM

Heres a build i personally just finished that should be more than sufficient.

Case: CM Storm Scout
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-v Pro
CPU: i5-2500k
CPU cooler: Arctic Pro Freezer 13
Graphics: Gigabyte GTX560Ti OC
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB sticks) Corsair Vengeance
HDD: 1TB 7200RPM
Optical Drive: Blu Ray (this was personal choice, not a necessity)

Build Price without Peripherals and OS: £850 ish

Take what you will from this build, but Runescape uses very little processing power really. Its an online MMO so the only thing your really using is the Game Client and more than anything, broadband speed. The only thing the computer really has to run is JAVA.
July 20, 2011 6:10:50 PM

i want to build a computer. would like more power as i want to run the maximum bots i can, so more power then more bots. i know of people using simular rig with the one above and not getting many more than like 5-10 and i would like alot more than that so could do with a more expensive rig
thanks
July 20, 2011 6:23:36 PM

It would probably work out cheaper to run a number of PC's rather than just 1 "super spec" PC.

Also the reason they're limited to 5-10 (unless their CPU and RAM is consistently 100% load) its limited due to their broadband/internet connection.
July 20, 2011 8:32:36 PM

hmm good point, i could prob get 2 maybe 3 soon computers with the parts you posted, don't suppose youve ever tried botting runescape with it have you?

yeah i think when i finally get my computer set up properly im going to pay to have fibre optic broadband fitted because i cba with the old bullshit internet now fibre optics getting fitted in my area lol
July 20, 2011 9:12:49 PM

No i haven't tried botting. I dont actually play at all, but i used to a few years ago so i know what its all about.

Im using Virgin Media's 20MB Fibre Optic broadband, couldnt rate high tbh, their service is flawless.
July 20, 2011 9:47:14 PM

couldn't rate high? why whats wrong with it?
July 21, 2011 12:31:42 AM

Is this just me or is selling in-game items for real money against the game's terms of use?
July 21, 2011 8:22:28 AM

Yes Kraash botting is totally against Jagex (the developers) rules and conditions but people do it anyway and its up to them if they get caught or not. Although spending large amounts of money on multiple PC's seems rather excessive haha. I guess theres just no stopping some people.
July 23, 2011 2:00:10 PM

yeah buying lots of pc's is a bit excessive but when i make a s**t loads of money it will make sence =)
just need to get my first one built tho so i can get an idea of what is needed for mass botting and keep upgrading or building better comps.

somebody write me some pro specs out please
July 23, 2011 2:09:47 PM

also i have asked around to rs players and the i7 would be better than the xeon processor so would preffer the build to be with the intel i7 2600k processor

thanks

1TB HDD
ASUS/ASRock/Gigabyte/MSI Socket 1155 Motherboard
16GB (4x4GB sticks) of RAM
Decent Aftermarket CPU cooler
HAF X case or similar


Pretty much best your going to get for £2000 in terms of graphics and processing power.

^ with a 1-2k budget, thats a pretty low spec build?


true but then again when is he going to use 16gb of ram for gaming any time in the next 10years? and when is he going to use 3gb+ of gpu power for gaming?
July 28, 2011 6:38:57 AM

He's looking at running like 20+ runescape bot accounts. He needs as much power as he can get.

even with the set up i said he could run steam.... wow and yes runescape :D 
July 28, 2011 8:16:50 AM

Surely the point of this build is to be running the computer with the MAXIMUM possible number of bots? Therfore with a budget of £2000 and only buying an i5-2500k and a 6970 your not even close to maximising your build potential?

i5+6790+4GB ram isnt going to pack anywhere near as much overall potential/processing power as i7+x2 580s+16GB ram.

As much as an i5 and 6970 would do the job, it wouldn't be able to run AS MANY bots. Since the users requirements are "run as many as possible" with a budget of "£1000-2000" - up the game a little :)

July 28, 2011 6:16:33 PM

wasn't the first build with 16gb ram? :p 

ill try and see what changes i could make but i don't think ill do any don't really know much about comps lol
July 28, 2011 6:22:02 PM

That is 16GB ram.

2x4GB sticks = £51, so buy 2 sets = 4 sticks at 4GB each = 16GB (£102 total)

Same applies to the graphics card price, a single price is £380 and the price listed in brackets (£760) is the price for 2
July 28, 2011 6:24:12 PM

oh ok :)  how come two graphics cards are needed?
July 28, 2011 6:33:32 PM

they probably aren't "needed" but with a £2000 budget it will certainly maximise the build potential.

you could always buy one to start with, and then add another if you feel its necessary.
July 28, 2011 6:47:02 PM

ok thanks alot mate finally my build is going to be done lol
July 31, 2011 7:51:46 AM
