Online Poker Build - $700 Budget! - Page 4

post #31 of 52
Yes because it is writing a lot of hand histories and writing stats for players. 18 tables with let's say 100 hands per table.

Go with an athlon 2 x4 and a ASUS M4A78LT-M motherboard and 2x2gb of ddr3. All of that for just under $200. Even with a 60gb vertex 2 and a $200 gpu you are still under $700.

Thats really all the guy needs. Poker doesnt take a lot to run since its all web based. Light gaming you dont need a high end chip for, an Athlon 2 quad is more than enough for it. pair that with a GTS450 or 5770 or something like that and hell be fine.

eyefinity\\3d-surround: These are un-needed. These two setups are for panning one app across all 3 monitors and making the monitors act as 1. If you have multiple windows, there is no need for this as you want them all visible. Does it theoretically benefit? Yes, but no more than just a normal 2-3 monitor setup. does.
I concur. This is essentially a heavy-web browsing machine, and even the Athlon II x4 is more than enough. My only suggestion for improving N-U's recommendation is to select a motherboard with a second PCI-E x16 slot in case your client wants to add even more monitors to his setup.

2-3 monitors is what you need for playing online poker if that's all you use your computer for mainly.

AMD is what you want to go for 955 Phenom, a 5770 graphics card, Vertex 2 SSD, 1TB WD storage drive, getting fast immense ram isn't really needed so 8gb of budget ram, any kind of optical drive and a decent motherboard. You can save a lot of money and get another monitor which will be much more beneficial.

Has anyone said more than one monitor

I would go with a small SSD for primary drive. Then a big cheep regular HD. On one partition keep a clone of the SSD. Every 3 months wipe the SSD clean down to the nano level and replace it with a clone copy. Poker sights are virus breeding grounds. The rest of the HD can be for games and pron.

This is easily double what he needs. All the computer will be doing is writing records of hands and browsing the web. This is literally nothing more than a heavy web browser. You dont need an enthusiast oriented computer. A higher end mainstream rig is probably more than he even needs but is what I would do for the light gaming side of what he wants.

Hey all, this thread is for my projected new comp (thanks Blah and everyone who has posted).

A little background:

I've been playing poker for a few years, been playing serious for almost a year now and am playing midstakes cash on pokerstars. I've been playing on an Acer 6920 laptop that I purchased a year and a half ago, which has started to become sluggish (even after a reformat). So I'm looking to switch to a desktop for better speed at a more reasonable price.

My current setup is my 15 inch laptop screen, where I play 8-12 tables at a time. I've used the 24 inch monitor a few times, but don't currently have a computer chair, so I haven't completely moved to it yet, but plan to once I get a desktop.

Basically as of right now, I am very content with my 24 inch monitor. I may upgrade in the distant future, but my current apartment's room is rather small and I have a small desk which my monitor fits on very well. So 1 monitor is fine for me.

Skype is mainly used during "sweat sessions." When I would be sharing my screen with someone else to go over reads etc. Sometimes Teamviewer is used in addition to Skype when Skype's sharing is laggy.

And when Blah says "light gaming" he means extremely light gaming and very recreational. I haven't played a computer game in many months, mainly just play Xbox. But then again, an improvement in some areas couldn't hurt.

I'm not a poker coach, have been offered by a small site, but respectfully declined.

I do "really" play poker. And while this is not a post for me to "brag" about myself, I've moved up in stakes and done very well with my 15 inch laptop over the last year, so the 24 inch is a huge upgrade for me

I would stick with this build then as it will give you a good fast system and you won't have to upgrade that soon and it will allow for another display if you decide later on. Plus for $505, that's cheap! good luck in poker.
