Help me on my X-Mas Present.

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Ok i have 2 Options.

1. Get a Dv5z (Amd)
Dual Core AMD
4GB DDR2
HD 3200
Laptop

2. Buy a Cyberpower.
Specs:
e8400 3.0
4GB DDR2
x3100
Vista Premium
Pretty much unbuildable for the price(As far as i know)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883229055
That is the Link to the PC. At least Spec Wize its Great.

Then To Go with it i would Get a 3870 (Best Card For 80/90 Right??)
And One of these PSU's (The pc comes with a craptastic one.)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139003 (Corsair 450)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703015 (PCP&C 500w)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151040
(Seasonic 500w)

Or is there a better PSU?

What would you do if you were me (I dont have a lcd only a old CRT thats why the Laptop tempts me.)

If you want more power I wouldn't really go for the laptop althought it really ain't a bad one Might need some more expert opinions here.

Don't buy a prebuilt computer, it's cheaper to build it yourself from scratch.

Not sure about that, I've saved £200 before building a computer myself rather than buying pre-built.

Well, while the prebuilt looks good, I always encourage building your own.

First, the power supply is 420w, which is pretty low if you plan on adding any nice video card, and most importantly, its not really a name brand. Looks like a sketch PSU. Second, you only get 250gb of storage, and with storage so cheap nowadays...Third, its onboard Intel graphics (YUCK!) which means you'll definitely need to buy a video card if you plan on playing Orange Box, even CS:Source for the most part.

I mean, dont get me wrong. I like the case and its a really good CPU and you get Vista, but I just think building your own would be so much better. My 2 cents.
