It wuld be ******ed for some one to buy this and have it turn obsoleted in 2 years.... what are your advises for an alll porpuse computer? besides is this such a computer good for graphic programs and animition as well as gaming computers?... can you use a gaming computer for anything else like a normal computer?

I doubt it will be rendered obsolete by BoB or any other PC game that will come out in the next 5 years. Old..... yeah.. obsolete? Nahhhhh There is enough muscle on that thing to make it viable for at least 5 years.. unless of course the whole technology changes and we go to some kind of alien mindwave type of deal....

BTW...... is English your first language?

It looks like doing some homework. Good deal. As for if the current market of computers will be outdated by the advent of BOB, I personally don't think so. Today's machines can be blistering fast, mulitasking monsters depending on your personal budget. And yes, they can be used for other than gaming.

A word of caution though. Brand names usually come with an inflated price tag. Shop around and get one customized to your wants. My machine was built three years ago this last January. It's a 3.06 intel with a gig of 800 rdram. I have only recently updated from a 4600 to a 6800gt vid card. It has/does handle most games thrown at it with ease. Based on that, a dual core system with SLI vids and 2 gigs of Ram should do you well for some years to come. Just my humble opinion.

Side note: The fine bride gave me the green light to get a new system some months ago. I only wait till the prices of some of these new fangled gadgets drop.

No english is not my first but i think you guys understood me any ways..., thanks for your replays , i was just thinking of buying new compiuter and passing my current to some brother.... it is kind of spensive this computer, but if it will not get outdate it in some time it seems a better deal than the cheaper onces that get obsolete in 2 years or less.... keep it coming guys thanks

If looking for something pre-built take a peek at some of these sites for system specifications and cost.

I am sticking with my old 32-bit Athlon until after I see how it runs Bob. And by then I might not be doing this anymore anyway.........

I typically build a new rig every 12 months or so and try to get close to cutting-edge. At this point I have a nice, fast rig but still fall short of 64 bit processing and SLI. A P4 3.4, 2 gig corsair, Audigy 2zs and a 6800 ultra will simply have to do for now. I'd wait until BoB is out as well. Then see how it goes.

This represents the very cutting edges of silicon processing where I live. Takes a while to get this baby going but when its humming it kicks a r s e.

why buying a new computer??? Better build a new one yourself, this way you have topnotch hardware inside and the fun (sometimes frustation) of building it. When you go shopping in the internet or shopping at shops you can compare prices and save money, you can save lots. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

And when the things runs and is finetuned, you can say to yourself and friends with pride, dam i BUILD me a nice pc, i find that better then , dam i wasted alot of money by buying a nice pc,but had to save on the processor cos i didnt had more money http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Yup the cpu is the last part i always buy. hehe prices fluctuate. same for memory.


its not hard to build a computer these days, no jumpers to set anymore, if you played with LEGO when you were a kid , you can build a computer.
