    posted a message on Help Upgrading My Computer plz!
    There are plenty of guides out there if you look for them, heres the first one that came up in a search for "Building a Gaming Computer".


    I install the cpu, fan and ram only before installing the mobo into the case. Once the mobo is in then i start adding the cards.

    Are you running a 32 or a 64 bit system? If your not sure,clicky

    If you have a 32-bit system you dont need 8 gigs of ram, a 32 bit system only utilizes a little over 3 gigs

    Sorry, on to my proposed build...

    Im trying to keep my build around the $800 mark and this is what ive come up with so far, any feed back is appreciated

    Intel core i5-2500k and Asus P8Z68-V Pro (combo, saves $20)

    Asus GTX 560Ti

    Thermaltake V9 Case

    Ram - Mushkin 8Gb DDR3 1600

    Corsair 750w Power supply

    or

    OCZ ModXtream Pro 700w Power Supply

    Going with the OCZ ModXtream PSU im around $889 before $75 in mail in rebates
    With the Corsair PSU im at $904 before a $65 mail in rebate.

    I could use my existing PSU and knock that price out, its a radioshack special and its a few years old but it works and i believe its 750w

    So what do you all think? Good build, any part tweaks you would recommend, ram, PSU...?

    I have the same processor/mboard combo and haven't had issues.

    Videocard is solid. Really it's a personal choice between 560Ti and the AMD 6950 in that price range.

    Memory...you'll see a lot of people getting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428 but Mushkin is good.

    I have a Corsair powersupply, so I typically recommend them.

    The G.Skill was my 2nd mem choice, I forgot to list it.
    Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it!

    Ive used Nvidia and Radeon GPU's before and my only hesitation with Radeon is I had one catch on fire, its actually why I have the build im currently using. I origionally had a GeForce card but it took a nosedive and a friend recommended the 4870HD I have now. I think at the time the 4870 was better than the comparable Nvidia card.

    Guess ill post this here, I was going to start a new topic but whatever...

    Im looking to build a new gaming rig. My current one is about 5 years old or so and its starting to show its age. Actually the main reason for upgrading is my system will randomly start to lock up. It freezes while browsing, playing mp3's, watching movies, ect... But not while runnig games, though sometimes it slows down then speeds up in the game. Once this starts I have to manually reset the maching then its good for a day or two untill it starts locking up again. If I go to reset it through windows it will go to the blue shutdown screen and sit there untill i hit the reset button. I tried leaving it over night once and when I woke up it was still at the shut down screen. I have no virus that Avast can find and Ive run CCleaner, Super Anti-spyware and MBAM. Nothing helps, so its time to rebuild. If you have any thoughts on how to fix or trouble shot this id be glad to hear them.

    Edit... this is what Im upgrading from

    Intel Core 2 Duo 6600 @2.4ghz
    Gigabyte EP45-UD3P Motherboard
    XFX 4870 GPU 1Gb DDR5
    Antec 900 gaming Case (one usb on the front panel broke) other than that its still a good tower so I could keep it and save another 90 on the case

    I dont mind the ferrets, as Azjenco said, they are there to collect for their master, Not viciously chew on a demons ankles or shins to try to slow it down. Kinda reminds me of The Beastmaster. Also if there are porcupines that shoot their quills at you and can kill you in doing so whats so bad about summoning a giant toad to eat saig porcupine or other random man sized or smaller hell spawn that wants to tap dance on your guts?

    But I agree about the pillar, im not to keen on that idea.
