Default New Computer - 06-15-2014, 11:41 AM

Hello, I'm in need of a new computer preferably a laptop because the one I am using now is about four years old and is showing it.
I'm not the most computer technical so I could use some help on choosing which path to follow, either custom build or just buy from store.

My needs are pretty simple, I want it to be gaming orientated but not a fully decked out supercomputer 4K noob raping machine.

pls halp

HP Pavillion is a standard laptop that will play most games in HD and with good performance and it has a really good price tag.

Customs are cheaper than buying a brand so just find a laptop you like and the parts it has in its sepcs and look up laptop compodents with the same sepcs.

The actual building of the PC is just like big electronic lego.

I may go with the custom desktop option because you simply cannot beat the price, I feel I'm paying too much for a more custom laptop.
As for actually building one and what I need I'm clueless.

Picked a desktop PC, feel free to do with this info whatever you want.

Processor ~

Intel Core i5 4670K Boxed. The budget-high end processor, with overclocking enabled.



200 euros.

Motherboard ~

Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H, cheap motherboard and very reliable.



60 euros.

RAM ~

Crucial Ballistix DDR3-1600 2 x 4 GB. A real bargain for the power it has.



58 euros.

GFX card ~

XFX Radeon HD 7970 Double Dissipation. For it's price an amazing card, great performances, but to keep within budget a somewhat less-liked AMD card. That's mainly because Nvidia cards have way better drivers and a faster output of updates for those.



240 euros.

HDD ~

Seagate ST1000DX001 1 TB. 1 TB is enough to store plenty of games, movies and what not. I would advice an SSD but they're simply too expensive to fit in your budget.

65 euros.

PSU ~

Legit anything 500 Watts and above for a price of 50 euros and lower is fine.

Case ~

That also counts for a case. Pick whichever you want, keep it cheap and make sure ATX motherboards fit in it.

Coming at around 700 euro's, it's a great investment. Of course you could downgrade some parts like the processor and the GFX card to save money, but those two are the most vital parts to play games with a decent FPS and quality.

Open for feedback from other people, of course.

Yeah Desktop Laptop in every way besides portability.

You'll need:

Motherboard.
Processor (If not included in the motherboard, so check!)
Power supply (Just get the cheapest)
Graphics card.
Case
Memory card HDD or SSD
OS


Case:
Up to you what you want for the case. There's the cheap kinds, the expensive flashy looking ones and then there's the practical ones with fans in to help cooling.

Motherboard
The most expensive part. It's essentially the brain of the computer and everything you do goes through here and the processor.
There's not a lot to them really, you'll get what you pay for.

Mine was 300 what ever that equates to in your currency.

Processor
Nowadays it comes with the Motherboard (I know mine did).
This is the component that works everything out and tells the PC how to operate.

Intel i5 or higher imo.

Power supply

Powers the rig. Just buy the cheapest one that works with your Motherboard.
Don't order offline imo, go into a store so you can talk with someone.
It should say on the back of the box of the Motherboard what Wattage it needs to work.

Graphics card

If you're wanting to do a bit of gaming then get something with 2GB+
Don't buy something with 'Over-clocking' you wont need it and if you don't know what you're doing you can ruin your card.

Mine cost me 150 but I went for the top model in the shop and can run anything in ultra.

Memory card

Get a HDD.

SSD is more advanced but like most new technology (Ie 3d tvs) they're very expensive for what they are.
They have no moving parts in them making them very fast, but you also wont get as much memory for your money.

1TB SSD = 350
1TB HDD = 75

Amazon.

I'd say a 2TB card will serve anyone nicely, but if money is a issue I'd sacrifice on this a little bit over other things.

OS

You're building form scratch so you're going to need an operating system! Windows 8 is good no matter what people say.
If not then you know your preferences.

Extras - Important

You're going to need a CD drive. Otherwise how you going to install your OS? (Unless you pirated it onto a USB which I don't recommend).

Other things like a mouse, keyboard, Extra card readers for SD cards etc.

I use a Lenovo Y510P. Great Laptop asides from the terrible network card, seriously, the wifi pickup range is bad. But if your gonna use it with an Ethernet then its great. A bid heavy though.

Agreed apart from the part about HDD/SSD. I'd say get a HDD (preferably 7200RPM [revolutions per minute]) but also get a small SSD such as:
 this this
for your operating system, believe me you'll notice the difference.

Remember that cheaper parts often flake quickly.

Adding on Miriams note, some games are a fucking bitch to load, those would go on your SSD too. Battlefield for example takes me 15 seconds to load on my ssd took like 3 minutes without.
