Just Joined And Builing my first real computer!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey fellas I was checking out used computers online and decided this is enough, after years and years of free and used computers given to me. Both of them breaking down, one the HD failed after I left it on for 5 years and the other got a trojan and I am just sick of these slow computers I cannot even play games on anymore let alone watch streaming video.
Not anymore! Until today I settled for old used technology, which currently is the dell optiplexgx620 with a weak a** 256mb or 512mb video and 1gz ram!
I AM DONE WITH YOU OLD CR*P! I been looking at the MARS II Vid card and the i7 Extreme hummm expensive buy worth it just to say I went all out?

Welcome to OCN,sir.A great place to hang out and discuss OC'ing.My advice would be to build a pc on your own if you expect heavy-duty performance like gaming or something which is too unusual to be expected from "everyday" computers.Go ahead,we're with you.

So you used used pcs for years and now you want to immediatly switch to a 3000$ system?
Just saying that for 800$ you can get a system that will run most games fine and still be a lot better than that Dell pc.

money value in buying something doesn't mean it's showoff material.
I'd not buy anything if you haven't already and just sit and read some more before making any purchase, I think you're going about it all wrong and probably won't buy anything you've listed regardless.
