Ideal Gaming Computer for Internet Cafes

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
A couple friends and I are putting together an Internet Cafe... I was just wondering what would be an ideal build for a gaming computer for around 2000 dollars or less that wont outdate for a while.

2000 bucks? ****.. now you can get a nice system for that.

Get the ASUS A8N32 SLi, one 7800gtx512mb or two 256mbs, maybe a FX57 CPU, and some 2.2.2.6 2GB ram? And a 74GB 10000RPM raptor for games and such.

EDIT: Remember, brand PSU's with very high watts and amperage will be needed too.

2000 bucks for a computer for an internet café. How many of these beasts you building? and what about your server?

Gigabit enabled networks would probably be the best for gaming - they'll handle like 1000 computers and everyone will still have a ping of like 4ms

If I may say...allotting 2000 dollars for a gaming rig at an internet cafe better be a marketing thing, and not for daily use in the cafe. It's just not a smart business move.

What will this particular system be used for?

wow 2k for internet cafe machines? you can get away with less.

CPU - AMD 3200+ 169 USD

Motherboard - Asus A8N5x 84 USD

VGA - eVGA 7800GT 270 USD

Ram - Corsair 2x512MB 75 USD

Case - Antec SLK3000 50 USD

HD - WD 250GB SATA 3.0Gb/s 95 USD

Optical - NEC 3550A 38 USD

PSU - Cooler Master RS-450 78 USD

LCD - Acer Black 8ms LCD 212 USD

Keyboard / Mouse - Microsoft Black OEM combo 42 USD

Total: $1,112.96

i rounded up on the prices above, but this is the total in the shopping cart. i did this in a rush, so not sure if i left anything out. some choices i went from personal experience, and others i just went with a high rating coupled with a low price. for the purpose of saving time i just went to one place, i'm sure you can get some items for a lower price elsewhere.

if you want to spend more, (dunnow why), get more ram, or a better LCD.

Its just a shop with computers inside set up for use. Travellers or people that do not have net access can go there use the computers for a cost and get a coffee as-well. I have a killer one down the road from me sponsored by a gaming company(servers) in adelaide and the rigs are pretty darn good there, you get a crew of about 20 people in there sometimes playing on line games together.
