    Man. Last time I died was on Vindictus. I was on my Lann (Who got hacked, lost all gear.) and was trying to solo a big spider. One of the grinding things to level. Got owned by the dude, xD.



    P.S. I hate spiders :/

    Anything by Nexon. It was specifically MapleStory that I loved.


    Eh I don't really like Nexon. Maybe it's because of their P2W type games. On a different note, I completely loved Vindictus by them for a long time. Its a good Hack - Slash MMO

    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/aIEp should do it, maybe change the CPU to an i3 2100, iirc WoW likes the slightly higher performance


    Would the Pentium hold back the 6870? And he doesn't need a 6870, my 6850 runs it more than perfectly. Also, I may change the RAM to something like G.Skill, never heard of that brand. And will 500w be enough if planning to upgrade in the future? Maybe a 600w would be better.

    Would these things I just said be something to look at, or is what you said pretty much what I should be going for?

    posted a message on Friend Wants Computer.
    Ok so, my friend is looking for a computer to suit his needs. He basically wants to be able to play WoW on Ultra and it not lag. While my new computer does the perfectly, it may be overkill and a little bit too pricey for the needs of my friend. So what kind of stuff could I go for in a build for my friend?

    My knowledge of computers is a little bit behind, I have no clue about this whole Ivy Bridge stuff. I was still saying he should get an i5-2500 (Which may still work, I don't know.)

    So if anyone could, please point me in the right way of a good computer build. If possible have it in the high 600s or low to mid 700s. (USD)

    Thanks,
    Savageclown

    The 6850 will bottle neck the 2500k just get either a cheaper processor or more expensive graphics card.

    Uh actually no. Don't listen to this guy. I have both the 6850 and 2500k and it works just fine.

    Clock speed is not a good gauge for comparing processor performance, the AMD fx chips are no more powerful than AMD's phenoms.

    Thanks, I was about to state this.

    It's relatively new, got it in 08-09. Is it because I only have 2.75 gigs of usable ram?


    That can't be it, I ran minecraft with 2 Gigs of RAM on my old computer.

    Wait, does CentrallyProcessed do that?

    Quote from Meowzika

    My friend wants a good computer for $500-600 excluding a monitor, including OS. He is looking for a decent graphics card, up to a 6850 if possible, and a processor that won't bottleneck the graphics card. He needs no more than 500gb, and no super fancy features.

    I decided to ask you guys because you can usually find great computers. :biggrin.gif: Oh and he isn't able to build it himself. Don't go off about it, I know you can get a MUCH better deal.


    I wouldn't think you could get a pre-built with a 6850 in those price ranges. My self-built computer with a 6850 costed me $750. I'll keep my eye out for you though.

    posted a message on Good PC SPECS?
    Quote from Skilldevader

    Hi i am building a computer and was wondering if these specs were anygood?

    Intel Core i7 2700K
    Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB WD1002FAEX x2
    LG CH12LS28 12X BD-R Blu-ray DVD Combo Drive
    Corsair Hydro Series H80 CPU Cooler
    Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
    Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit with SP1 OEM
    ASUS VE278Q 27in Widescreen LED Monitor
    ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Motherboard
    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 590 3GB
    Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard
    Enermax MaxRevo 1500W
    CoolerMaster HAF 922 Case
    Intel 520 Series 60GB SSD

    Total $3200


    Ok lets change some things here.

    With the CPU, unless you are doing some rendering, step down to an i5 2500k.

    With the CPU Cooler, grab something along the lines of a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, that will do fine on that i5 2500k. Matter of fact on mine, at idle I hit 25° Celsius.

    With the Windows. You don't need Ultimate. Use their lowest one at 64 bit and it should do you well.

    With the Motherboard. Nothing on ASRock, but I have heard they are a hit and miss company. I would go with a more reliable brand such as ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, etc.

    Don't go with the GTX 590. They are heat and power monsters. Something like a Radeon HD 7970 will be 100-200 dollars less and still do pretty much the same thing while being more efficient.

    With the power supply. No no no. Enermax is a lower brand. With parts like that, go with something along the lines of a Corsair or Antec. You don't need 1500W, at most you will need 1000W and that will give you a good 200W of wiggle room.

    Other than that, it is great.

    Quote from Bigbirdy13

    Hi,

    I am having internet problems. We get our internet through quest. My modem's lights blink a lot and sometimes shut off all together. We have gotten a new modem and the problem didn't do away. I use a wireless connection if that has anything to do with it. My moms computer does that too. Is this quests fault? Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Mike

    Have you had Quest come out and look at it? I've never heard of them but I'm pretty sure they could do that. It could be something with your end, or with the cabling before your house. Best bet is to ask Quest if they can send a worker out to your house.

    Im getting that keyboard, looks cool, really like the dedicated gaming area on the side. Should work great in WoW. Here's an unboxing of it, and a little review.

    The keyboard I'm looking at is there here. One of the reasons is that keyboard. In SWTOR, my quickbar is almost filled up and hitting the higher numbers are difficult. This would be much better. So anyone who has this keyboard, can you leave a quick review?
