Is this a decent gaming rig? - Page 3

post #21 of 41
I ran an ATI Radeon HD4870 512mb and played Crysis, call of dutys and many more with no issues so I am positive that you can run that card with absolutely no issues!!!! The only thing that you have to keep an eye on would be the PSU - that is marginal and may give you some issues if you add to the pc. Corrsair is great!!!

Family pack is different.

But I believe all the rigs should be at the same address of again you will be breaking the terms of the licence (but I'd have to check - either way I don't think you can give one to your nephew).

I have also ran 4870, great card, but the one he plans on is 6450, how did 4870 come in the conversation??

I thats the case I still can have my media pc regardless...
Besides if I build his PC at my house and update everything plus activation & updates then I could give him the rig to take home, it could work???...if activation fails at his house he could upgrade to ultimate at his place for cheap or get a genuine key from Microsoft for (IDK) $30 or $40 bucks and get over on what manufacturers would of charged him at amazon or ibuypower.com

i dont really see why it wouldnt work in the first place.

If you are a "Qualified Family Pack User", you may install one copy of the software marked as "Family Pack" on three computers in your household for use by people who reside there. Those computers are the "licensed computers" and are subject to these license terms.

You are a Qualified Family Pack User if you obtained an upgrade license to Windows 7 Home Premium in a product labeled "Family Pack" on the product packaging and media.
So he can only do it legally if his nephew lives with him.

He could buy the student edition of 7 which is cheap if his nephew is at school though.

im tired of bringing these things up to gaming specs. ive had a few to work on here that come with 1100T's and 2500K's but have this tiny little crap videocard.

couple months back actually i had to replace the psu cause someone tried to put their own graphics card in it.... 450W can berely push that 2500K.

That doens't mean he *can't* do it. Windows will install and activate ok, just his nephew won't be able to register it.
