Runs: Crysis on Very high 1080p 35fps Modern Warfare 2 Maxed out 1080p 81fps dirt 2 1080p 8x AA 60fps
Thats a darn good rig for that price, though i would make some adjustments to that spec. Make it even cheaper.
Oh...so this how much a gaming PC costs...
You wanna know how much 576p gaming PC costs?
Let's keep it to pcs that do 1080p FangBlade.
Nice to know I'm not the only one that caught that.
Can you actually give me a list of what PC games do expect to play at 576p ? Want to see how dumb you are. Go ahead. edit: yeah...kind of thought lmao.
I hate upgradig ! everyday new things come and u have to be upgraded, I HATE THAT
I hate consoles, every day games come out that under perform and are at low res. Worst of all, there's nothing I can do to make those games play any better.
I'm sure that games don't support 576p as a resolution, but you can play around that, or lower on nearly any PC. A computer that costs less than the 360 with a HDD will be able to play games at that same resolution, will most likely even play them at 1280 x 720, and that was the point he was getting at. You were stealth trolling, and he shot back at you; now you're getting defensive. @ KevnB Not all consoles are built the same. Don't make generalized statements.
nice rig... Its great to be gaming on a pc this and nex gen...
lol 576 res...god that would kill my eyes, I was running Quake 2 at higher resolutions than that 13 years ago.
which is crazy.
It's a good price but unless you plan on using your TV or an old monitor you'd probably need to get one to match it... As well as a good sound system/headphones and a few other misc things but overall it's about right.
Fangblade made a funny. He's talking about the Xbox 360.
Wow i can't believe Cold fell for that hook, line and sinker. I mean i can't believe he didn't get what Fangblade meant.
@linuxGuru Thanks man, I thought no one was going to catch that one. I couldn't believe they were taking it seriously.
The intelligence of your average 360 fanboy at work.
@G3TDOWN What are you talking about ? I haven't upgraded my PC in over 2 years and I can still play current games on Max I can get you a list now of pc parts that would cost you a total of $425 dollars and you would be able to play 90% of the games on max
and it cheaper than a start off console gamer you probably have to pay double this to buy a good tv and then a console and youll still be stuck with 720p games which some people try to prove they run at 1080p. Even if they run at 1080p a good pc will run at 2560p
Cant build your own machine? You can even get cheap prebuilt machines these days. Check this baby out: http://www.misco.co.uk/appl... 420 pounds for a quad core, 1TB HDD, 4Gb memory and a 4850. Keyboard and mouse included! Lol. Vista home is maybe the only major let down, but for the price of a prebuilt machine the specs are quite impressive and needless to say a lot faster than the consoles.
Its not about teh grapix, its about the games. Its not about how much resolution a game is, sure pc games are pretty, but there are great games that come to consoles that you cant get on pc. I could go on about how great my ps3 is, but im too busy playing games on it, and honestly, I love my pc too. Its an awesome time to be a gamer.
I thought about joining PC gaming, but there's too much DRM these days. I'd rather be in control of my product. BTW: It's missing an operating system.
Above^^^^ You can always get around that believe me lol, and most of the games that are good don't have it.
I love gaming at a standard 60fps on almost every PC games out there.
You can always tweak the files and make them run at 120 fps or more. But 120 is more than enough.
Never seen this much comments in an article based on pc costs. I could only imagine that the console fanboys here have just realized that gaming at 1080p can indeed be a reality for them. You really can't go wrong for the price the pc REALLY does do everything. streaming, burning, downloading, gaming, talking with ur friends on a mic, surfing porn all at once... $750 is highway robbery. The specs are pretty sweet actually.
@HolyOrangeCows: One would assume you already own a computer. And thus already own an OS. So why pay for the OS again? Just install it on the new computer. Hell you don't even need to, just add your hard drive from your old computer to this one, set it as the master and boot up. You'll need to install new drivers of course for the new hardware.
$750 but missing the OS? oh no they didn't - if you know what I mean! PC gamers can skip the DRM and the cost of the games too if they want - again, if you know what I mean! (^_^)
And that's without a monitor, without nice sound, without a mouse, and without a keyboard. Did they include tax? I would rather buy both a 360 and a ps3 slim.
Dont forget to add the price for that HDTV on the ps3 or the xbox. Dunno about you but i been using the same Mouse i bought from 8years back, my keyboards around 3yrs old, speaker being about 10yrs old too still work great. Many parts are already present when ppl build stuff themselves. This is a great rig.
I would hook that beast up to a HDMI tv and enjoy 1080p graphics on all my games with 60fps+
Yeah but you're forgetting that you could possibly get out the door with both the 360 and ps3 for cheaper than that one rig. I said, if I had to pay $750, then I would choose something else. I mean, even though I brag about graphics in the console war, doesn't mean I'm a complete graphics whore. So, let's change it up a bit, let's retract my statement about buying both systems, and confine it to just one. I would buy one of the systems (i need a ps3slim), and then what would the problem be? Anyone thinking about multiplayer split screen games? Don't you usually need two computers for that? And about the using the mouse a while, true that, but you still gotta buy one. I gotta have a mouse with at least a 6 button layout. And a keyboard with volume settings. I know it's not much, but every little bit adds up.
The rig just inst used for gaming, it does a whole lot more then that. Everyone needs a PC at home anyways. Making it into that Gaming rig would cost lower then getting a ps3 or xbox. Also dont forget you save on every game bought on that rig. Niether do you have to pay for online charges. Dlcs are sometimes free. In the long run that rig will be cheaper then either console. Yes i do agree with you that splitscreen isnt that well supported on PC. Though games like L4D support splitscreen. There arent too many games on Consoles either these days that support splitscreen, since developers would rather have people buy more copies. Personally i find splitscreen gaming rather annoying though it is a option to have.
Bereaver you could remove one of the Gpus on that system and bring the price down to 650usd if price is such a issue. Since a single 4850 would still play all games at 1080p, having it in crossfire is just a luxury. Tahts the beauty of PC gaming its very versatile.
Why do I have so many disagrees? Does anyone know that my computer can run Crysis at 50fps at a nice resolution? And that was three years ago. It cost me a little less than a grand.
Rather buy a 360 and ps3 slim are you a stupid.Steam and PC gaming for life!
@Bereaver Well, if you want a Console, you better have an HDTV. Having an HDTV, means the PC can be connected to the HDTV. And you don't need a Monitor... Also, Gaming at 1080p or better NATIVE for PC. In consoles 1080p don't exist, it is upscaled.
Wow you are one of the few people who know that.
I know your PC is powerful and such but to say that 1080p doesn't exist on consoles is just pure denial! I know it's not all but there are 1080p games! it's just like not all PCs can run all games at max! try and prove me wrong!
sure a pc fom 2004 wont play current games at 1080p, however anything as recent as 3yrs old will. Anyone serious into Gaming doesnt mind spending 100usd on a gpu to be able to play @1080p, something consoles cant do on all their games. They do it for like 5% of their games.

AY LIEK TIPEING UN KABZ LUKZ !!
Unless you live in one of the few states that charge online taxes on websites other than retail websites, tax is not a worry. And Crossfired 4850's is AMAZINGLY GOOOOOOOD.
some of u are soo lucky to live in us,this pc in most parts of eu is well over 1000$.Stupid euro and taxes.
I built a gaming pc 2 weeks ago, cost me £500. And i got better parts than this.
I think you get that cheaper i built a rig with amd phenom quad core 2gb ram (now 6gb) 5750 for £352 and this runs mw2 at about 88-120fps at 1080p and crysis at 42-50fps at 1080p
hey can you pm with your detailed specs please, i would want to build a gaming rig and need some cool base to start , thanks u! =)
Coming from a launch PS3 owner, and one who is very much enjoying god of war 3 right now. What was the general justification for paying £450 - £500 for a PS3 at launch? "Its powerful, it'll be worth it. " So why can't the same people who were saying that, say the same for PC gaming? You pay more, for better performance, and more functionality. Fair enough if you don't want that and the lower console performance is good enough for you, but there is some double standards going on here.
Other than sheer stupidity , i dont even see the purpose for both extreme spectrums of the argument . It will be useless as long as pc and consoles dont have the exact same library of titles . Some games are exclusives to consoles and some genre are more represented on consoles ... likewise with some pc exclusive titles and genres . The only common ground for comparisons is when it comes to multiplatform games . In wich case , if you got a decent enough PC gaming rig , wich isnt hard at all nor that expensive , you'll get better raw performances .
I don't think anyone would disagree with that. What irks PC gamers though is the endless number of 13 year olds who perpetuate the myth everywhere that a good PC costs 4k, with their only frame of reference being overpriced Alienware rigs and the like. There's tons of guides out there that can build you a high performing rig for under $750, even under $500 easily.
It's been years since I built a computer. I know I want the latest X58 chipset motherboard for scalability but what processor to get best bang for my bucks. i7-920?
LGA 1366 will be around longer than LGA 1156. AMD AM3 will be around for some time as well, so go with one of them, for what you want to use it for I'd recommend Phenom II X4 as i7-920 based systems are still very pricey.
If you choose to go down the Intel route, the i5-750 is the sweet spot. When overclocked to match the 920 clock speed and when both are overclocked further, performance is practically identical. AM3s will offer you better value, but on most games, head to head, an AM3 and i5/7 overclocked to full capacity, the i5/7 will come out on top by a reasonable margin. If MAME emulation is anything like PS2/GameCube/Wii emulation then clock frequency and number of cores are the most important factors. So an overclocked 4 core CPU is ideal, I'm sure they're all more than capable.
I disagree that LGA1366 is worth it, LGA1156 processors are much cheaper. Yes, they sacrifice a few features, but it's doubtful you'd use these features. An i5 750 will trump an i7 920 in most games and it is a full 100$ cheaper (here in Canada at least). It lacks hyperthreading so if you have any applications that can benefit from this then you might lean towards the i7 920. Gaming seems to be at the top of your list so I doubt it is worth it. Proof: http://www.anandtech.com/cp... I'd worry more about the GPU than CPU at any rate. I'm running an AMD x3 720 and 2x4890s and I've yet to come across a game it can't handle.
agree with wicko .LGA1156 is more advantageous ... And by the time you'd be forced to switch anyway to a new socket , it is more likely that LGA1366 would be obsolete as well , and already replaced by something more shiny .
i7 930 same price as i7 920 but clocked a lil higher!!
Why would you buy the 930, you can save money buying the 920($250 now) and they OC the same.
go to tomshardware.com. Look under forums and new system build. The people there are very helpful. After reading a few posts u might want to post your own.
Wouldn't the LGA1366 be actually worth it? Sure as you say, it'll probably be obsolete, but don't most LGA1366 motherboards have future support for the new 6 core processors (Intel i9)? Don't they also have USB 3.0? Sure, games won't have support for 6 cores now, but what about maybe 3/4 years from now, your i7 is starting to show performance issues. Couldn't you just solve the issue by upgrading to a faster processor and a video card? Maybe by then you'll just have to spend $300 - $400 to stay fresh. Ok maybe this sounds a little rediculous, but I'm just throwing it out there. I just thought purchasing a 1366 model will be good in the long run.
you get very similar performance for just the price of a 5770 which is about $35 cheaper?!? throw that to the CPU and get an X4..Also the X4 cooling is good enough to overclock with stock so no need for extra cooling and thats more money towards a CPU.... My specs: AMD Phenom X4 945 3.00 Sapphire HD5750 1GB 4 Gigs Ram DDR2 @ 800 and I still average 28~30 fps on Crysis maxed (usually play on high and get 38~45), the 5770 should get you 31~33 on average and you're getting a DX11 card....
Yeah it was a stupid decision by them. Not to mention that there are games that don't take advantage of crossfire, and at that low of a pricepoint they should stick with a single card. You can get a 5770 for 150CDN im sure it would be even cheaper in the US.
Consoles $299 SD 576p - Some games use this res, ED 640p - Most are at this res HD 720p - Most are at this res, HD 1080p - Very little are native PC $750 HD 720p - Every game, HD 768p - Every game HD 900p - Every game, HD 1050p - Most games HD 1080p - Most games, Greater than HD 1200p - Most games 198% more pixels than Full HD 1600p - Couple of games

Put a 4890 in there and used the money I saved from not having two cards to bump the cpu a little bit. But that's just me.
i would go HD5770. plus you could save money on the case and power supply. no need to spend $140 if going cheap is your goal. may even try saving some cash on the mobo. RAIDMAX ATX Mid Tower 450W Power Supply- $50 AMD Athlon II X4 630- $100 ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX- $60 keep Ram-$94 HD5770- $165 1TB HDD- $80 can keep DVD- $24 i just saved people $200 dollars and its that much better.
Good call on the cpu. I would go 500 gb on the HDD, and if I was going with a 5 series card I would go 5850. AA ftw.
