Seems like a nice place to be...whats up?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, names Doug (yeah..."boom! headshot!"..been done) apparently I have some mates on here, Thom and David?.. wherever you are?

anyway, so my computing skills and understandings are second to none. quite literary, haha.. only learn't what overclocking was 2days ago...but im a fast learner i have the basic understanding but not enough . I'm currently using a total pos for my sad excuse for gaming and digital photography editing/design.
this is my beast...*****.. whatever you prefer to call it

specs?
really not important..
whats important is the fact it struggles with CS5 and not just sometimes but quite often adobe lightroom, auto cad is a joke.. i don't even bother lol.

vista alone chews through 173mb's of graphics on idle and i have nearly every setting on it's lowest.. makes no difference.. still runs like **** on a stick haha
it has no PCI-E slot and my mates $300 ex-gov ebay laptop runs w0w at a higher FPS than mine can, (on the lowest of lowest settings i manage 15-23fps depending on how many charter's are on my screen, in orgrimmar i hit 4fps, epicccccccccccc. )

so!
this is the plan -

I'm not a hardcore gamer, the most complex game i will ever run is Diablo 3.. since this is supposed to be able to run COD6, Dirt2 etc... at full tilt no issues, im sure it'll be more than enough. if you have a suggestion IE: I've made an error with *** part and i should get this *** part because it's better in every way and costs 10 bucks more let me know! I'd really appreciate it.
Pretttty excited about it all, i used to make completely one off tucked wiring harnesses for cars so, sad i know but im reeeaaaally excited to get the heat shrink and sleeving out and go crazy with some black and blue milspec sleeving haha.

Id really like to try and keep it close to the 1k mark as i can't really justify spending more than that on a computer when i already have a laptop and computer that work fine, just really slow and sometimes act like they are hungover..

/ENDEPICINTROTHREAD.
anyone on jdmst/nwp4life/atsgrage/hondatech/ns/any car forum, im on almost everyone of them. no joke.. it was my job for 6months? holla if you are hey!

Why not get a Athlon II 640. Seems a quad core would make more sense for CS5.

Not all x2 can unlock to quad. It's a gamble.
