    You know a pc can also be a"gaming machine" it depends what hardware you put in. I use my pc for gaming. And You can build a pc which will beat any console. But each to his own this thread isn't meant to be pc vs console. So I will leave it at that.

    lol i know a pc can be a console but to own a console for playing games is better because of many things.

    Also on the pc,the maximum thing for graphics is the new geforce 786mb which has gddr3,which is good but alone costs 600$,the price of a ps3.

    What are your specs stefan(just want to know,since i am getting a new cpu myself)

    PC hardware is expensive but the games are cheaper and you guys do know Sony actually sells the consoles at a loss the same as Nintendo and Microsoft so your actually paying of your hardware with the games tou buy.Getting a new rig as soon as the new nforce 680i motherboards arrive.

    My current rig is a year and a bit old still runs the games but I need a new toy. this is my current specs: Amd atlon 64 3200, 1 gig king max ddr 400 ram,2x80 gig sata hadrdrives setup as raid 0,asus a8n motherboard and 8 lg dvd writer.

    Getting this new system: Intel duol core e6400
    2 gig ddr 2 800 mhz team xtreme ram
    asus p5n32 e sli nforce 680i motherboard
    geforce 8800 gts
    250 gig hitachi sata 2 h/d
    16xlg dvd writer with light scribe

    The gfx is going to cost me a lot more than it actually should . Suppose to cost $500 but since I live here in the land of over priced computer hardware I can only get it for R5500 rand whihc equates to $770 .

    Your processor is good but just 1 question when you bought it why did you go for it instead of a core2duo e6300 instead??

    Core2duo's are better for games compared to pentium d's.

    Don't play cs online. I don't have a big enough capp for any online gaming. Sharing a 3 gig cap between 4 people means I can only browse and download the odd file.

    It's got 640mb on board and it's clocks are slighly slower compared the 8800 gtx but I ain't going to pay over R7000 for a graphics card.

    i got the pentuim d because it is the highest proccessor in egypt man,and i also looked for the dell cpus,they all come with pentuim d proccessor,and also the only deifferance between mine and the core 2 is the Mhz speed.

    Also i will evetually get that geforce but its to pricy now,i mean in egypt the highest geforce is the built in 256 DDR3 and it costs 3690 LE,which is a high price,so i am just going like a year until the prices go down and then i will get it from the US,i mean my Geforce is great,i love that turbo cache thing.

    We are going way off topic.

    Personally I don't look for dell or stuff like that. I just pick the components that I want than get the guy which I know to get the stuff and put the pc together.

    It seems you guys in egypt are even more limited in what you can get compared to us here in SA.

    Computer hardware

    Since we don't have a thread for this and the playstation 3 thread is going way off topic. I think this thread is needed. Can the mods move the offtopic posts from the playstation3 thread to here??

    no man,i ASSEMBELD my cpu, i got everything by itself and made my cpu,practically what you do,but here in egypt the highest proccessor to get is the Dual Core Pentuim D 3.40 and i was just saying that even the new Dell cpus have the same proccessor but at 3.2,i was just implying that this is a great proccessor,because you asked my why did i get this and not the core 2 duo.

    Can any of the mods just name this the "Computer Thread",and anyone can discuss ANYTHING regarding the cpu in this thread.

    It's funny how this thread has been dominated by the two of you .

    Personally, I have dropped pc gaming for a long time, and only play an occasional game in pro evolution soccer, so my spec is kinda crap compared to you guys'.

    Intel Pentium D 2.8Ghz
    2.00GB Dual Channel
    Asus P5LD2 Motherboard
    120gb SATA 2 hd + 160 SATA 2 hd
    ATi Radeon x1300 PCI Express
    Onboard Sound card
    and a random dvd writer

    My video card sucks, I experience graphics stutterings even in Pro Evo 6, that's how bad it is.

    Whats the gfx?? Also what do you want to use the pc for?? If it's for gaming you would probally be better of getting an extra gig of ram.

    That cpu isn't expensive Core2Duo is the best current cpu's. And the cpu that he has there is the lowest e6300 model. Plus overclock great. Great value for money if you like overclocking.

    Why dont you look into getting the ATI X1950 if you are already gonna get a high priced card,its 512mb DDR4 with 256 bit interface.

    I got a new graphic card anyways,the geforce i had wasnt that good,i sold it and got an ATI x1600 XT with 256 DDR3 up to 512 DDR3/128 bit interface,its great and it isnt expensive at all.
