It looks not to bad but theres no os (windows) with it, so you can add another £50 if you need to buy it.

student, so get it for 30. lol.
thanks guys and
will my games run at a steady framrate?

i dont mean to be a fanboy but i think you should check out the games lineup for PS3........its way better and the ps3 costs far less.

and multiplats aint neccessarily better on PC anyway ............ look at fifa and GTA4 for example.
modern warfare 2 is loosing its dedicated servers.

and it gets multiplatforms at a later date then consoles.

if you still intend on getting a PC then the 4870 is a good GPU but i doubt it will be able to handle crysis 2 to a respectable level without frame rate drops.

empire total war will be a peice of cake for this machine just like any other rts.

PS3 better game line-up than a PC? Seriously, just leave.


lmfao...........pc exclusives suck.........

pc doesnt have:
demons souls
final fantasy versus XIII
folklore
god of war 3
gran turismo 5
heavy rain
infamous
killzone 2
the last guardian
little big planet
MAG
metal gear solid 4
Motorstorm
Quantum theory
resistance
uncharted
warhawk.

ps3 was released at the end of november 2006..........for every game i mentioned i want u to put a PC exclusive next to it.

be careful because ill check reviews from many sites and post back after you make a pathetic attempt in trying to match PS3 AAA titles.

good luck...........youll need it.

EDIT: put respectable upcoming titles next to games like the last guardian which havent released but are guaranteed to be epic.............dont put average games on there like most of PC's million titles are.

its a 7 series GPU, very similar to the RSX.

it could potentially produce graphics of killzone and gran turismo level but too bad PC games dont optimise the hardware like PS3 exclusives do.

go with the first system........youll get a solid frame rate at a higher res.

My ideas on those games:

demons souls - never even heard of
final fantasy versus XIII - krud
folklore - krud
god of war 3 - havent played but does look pretty good
gran turismo 5 - wicked...oh but not released yet!
heavy rain - not my sort of game
infamous - didnt get on with it
killzone 2 - fun
the last guardian - never heard of
little big planet - fun for 2 levels then boring
MAG - not sure
metal gear solid 4 - good game
Motorstorm - fun
Quantum theory - havent played
resistance - krud
uncharted - good
warhawk. - wasnt a fan

And yes yes i have a ps3...and no im not a fanboy...i have ps3, 360, wii and a gaming capable pc.

2.4Ghz single core processor
256MB Graphics card (DX9 compatible)
1GB RAM (For XP, 2GB if using Vista)

their the minimum system req's

but i say go for the first so you can max out the game with a good frame rate.

its better buying the first system then realising your not getting a good performance on new releases because the system is outdated.

unless your willing to buy a new gaming pc within a couple of years then go for the first one.

i love how you didnt put any PC games.

its what most people who defend pc do...........say consoles are rubbish but dont have anything to say when i ask them about AAA exclusives........dont worry......i didnt expect you to come up with titles matching ps3 exclusives because they just dont exist.

i have no problem with PC's.........when they get good games ill probably have a better system then you.

yeah but i doubt i'll be using it for big games, like gears of war and crysis man.
rts, should be able to run easily surely?

I've never even heard of most of those exclusives, says alot about the quality of them, you named a few games, go check out a PC's back catalogue I think we win. Infact were you even trying to pass off a console as a gaming platform?


mate you seem to know loads, so i would appreciate your help!
yeah the pc has better games , but i prefer the accesability of the ps3

well if you havent herd of "most" of thost exclusives then im not going to bother arguing with you.

whats the point if you dont even know what the ps3 has.

its like saying a skoda is better then a ferrari because you dont know how powerful a ferrari is.
who the hell argues with someone like that?
banned#17
sorry to hijack your thread but I also need pc help


I'm after one as my hdd died.......its old, need a new one....any reccomendations as I'm currently having to use the ps3

dont need monitor, prob wont play games tbh...just occasional downloads and pref windows 7...any ideas?





btw....pc gaming IS best, but 360 best games console

That PC should run the total war games fine, like I said already, or have I missed another question?


the second pc in the first post mate. should it run the empire games?

I'll throw out a few:

Crysis
Far Cry 2
Gears of War
GTA 4
Act of War
C & C series
World in Conflict
CSS (biggest FPS ever?)
UT3
Rainbow Six Vegas 1 & 2

That's just what I can reach from where I am.

Yes I know some of them are on a console, but they don't count because you have to use the disaster that is a gamepad.


actually more gamers use a joypad then mouse and keyboard, get your facts straight.

mouse and keyboard were not designed for gaming purposes, they dont even offer 360 degrees in football games........how pathetic.

read my post.........titles after 2006.
CSS was the biggest fps but i believe the gran turismo's on ps2 were bigger racing titles..........more people played them then WoW.

gears of war is on xbox.......and it doesnt compare to killzone 2 anyway.

apart from graphics, crysis is a below average game with poor AI, story and easy gameplay.

GTA4 is better on consoles hence gamespot rated it lower on PC...........it came out late and it still couldnt improve.

C&C red alert 3 is on PS3 with keyboard and mouse support.

world in conflict is an average game, just like UT3 which can also be played with USB keyboard and mouse on PS3.

your never going to match the small list i made from the top of my head of PS3 AAA titles.
#21
dcx_badass
Do I really have to take a picture of my Gears of War PC version just to shut you up. A mouse and keyboard is always going to be better than a joypad, just accept it, it's much more accurate and faster.

Exclusive titles mean nothing, is that your only argument.


dual analogue stick is more accurate and smooth.

mouse is faster which is why i hate it...........you can turn 32423423423 degrees in 1 milisecond, how fake.

and btw more people do spinning no-scopes on console versions of COD then on PC.

gears of war sucks.......everyone knows about its average AI and its ton of bugs.
on xbox it has a pathetic 10 player online.......not sure about PC.
but the maps will still only be for 10 players since it was initially made for xbox.

resistance has way more AI on screen, way better story line and can do 60 players lag free.

exclusives titles mean everything.........thats the only difference.

more gamers use a gamepad? i beg to differ...how many pc gamers do you think there actually is? especially as you say when other games on consoles can now be played with a K+M!
and dont even get me started of playing RTS on a console especially as it doesnt have the resolution either so youve got a limited view.

how is it fake moving those degrees in a millisecond? turn your mouse sensitivity down...or of course do what others do on consoles turn it up!

also i bought reisistance after it was hyped and it was disappointing i was told it was a Halo killer...BS! it sucked!

Not if you want it for gaming, Intel graphics are the worst possible choice for gaming.

You generally want an ATI 4770 or above or Nvidia 9800GTX+/GTS 250 or above, for the processor any quad-core is going to be a good choice.

Also, I'll throw in Battlefield Heroes (which is free) and Sims 3 (do I have to really go into the success of the sims?).
