  • New computer

    Need some help from the wise hardware people :)

    Ok hopefully I should get around 1000 to spend on a new computer soon, what would you recommend I purchase, it will be used to play Arma 2 but will need to be "future proof" for as long as possible, heard a SSD really improves performance so would like to include one. Also could you recommend a good screen.

    My name: Adept a skilled or proficient person Abyss a deep, immeasurable space, gulf, or cavity
    So I'm a very skilled deep hole :D

    Re: New computer

    Do you need a new mouse, keyboard, case, and a copy of Win7 also?
    I can make a list of things for you to buy but I'm not familiar with the places you would order from since your in Carrick Castle.

      I heard the same thing about the SSD. I am going to put one in my new system and see what happens.

        I just built an i5-750 system with a SSD for the OS and games. COD4 levels load in a fraction of the time and system boot/shutdown are significantly faster.

            I have mouse keyboard and case already, I would have to get Win7, if you can just get me a list of items, I can check out sites.




            FYI Carrick castle is in N.Ireland :D

            just google carrickfergus castle lol :D

                Re: New computer

                Adept I usually go with these two sites:

                www.overclockers.co.uk

                www.aria.co.uk

                Will have a look for you tomorrow when I have time at parts etc. Do you need an OS/powersupply/case/mouse/keyboard? These can save costs if not.

                        No that board will not work with the cpu or memory. If you don't need the power supply you could maybe get the 5870 instead. If you want I could make another list for little less money or just change the current one.

                          Just checked my old computer, the power supply was only 600w so would need the new one. The list you gave will be great, now just gotta wait till I get paid before I start buying some of it :D
