Apr 17, 2011Then a good time to learn! Why not learn something that will benefit you and is fun AND save hundreds of dollars while getting a computer? I learned it fairly quick, just have to have compatible parts and a tiny bit of elbow grease to push the dang RAM in.Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
Apr 17, 201112gb of RAM is not needed to max out BF3Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
This would max it out, most likely
AMD Phenom II X4
6990, 5870, 6870, GTX 480 - any of these would do the job
You don't need a six-core, not yet released processor or even crossfire.
If you really want a beast machine -
Get a 5970
6GB of RAM
Apr 17, 2011Here is a good laptop for under $1 grandPosted in: Hardware & Software Support
That can play Minecraft, but like above poster said you can't run and play for that cheap on a laptop. You don't really need a good computer to run a Minecraft server, if you use Ubuntu server edition you can have a server with 512MB of RAM and a Pentium 4
Apr 14, 2011Assuming you have optical drive, monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers - here is a setup for about $690Posted in: Computer Science and Technology

Apr 13, 2011That computer is a full build that comes with everything you need, including the power supply and graphics card. And the GPU that comes with it, Radeon HD 5570, is a good card that will be able to play Fallout 3 and the orange box.Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
Apr 12, 2011Just a quick suggestion for a motherboardPosted in: Computer Science and Technology
Overclocking is raising the speed/clock speed of the components in your computer/phone/whatever to a higher speed so it goes faster. You can underclock and it will decrease performance but give better battery life.
The mobo I suggested has an auto OC feature, so it might be easy to use that.
Apr 12, 2011The 1GB of RAM is dedicated to the graphics card mentioned. The parts will probably run those games if you have like 4GB of RAM and a 7200RPM drive and run at a resolution about as low as mine, 1280x1024. Performance will drop with higher resolutions, though.Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
And also, the parts are pretty low priced - only around $60 for the CPU and $70-$80 for the GPU, just make sure you pair it with 4GB of RAM and a nice motherboard so you can overclock it.
Apr 12, 2011Some budget parts that perform well for me arePosted in: Computer Science and Technology
Sapphire brand ATI Radeon HD 5570 (1GB memory)
AMD Athlon II X2 250
Both are overclocked the highest I could get them w/o crashing, and I can play any game with at least like 25 FPS or more at 1280x1024
Alien VS. Predator (2010) at DX11, highest settings running at a steady 40 FPS
Call of Duty MW2 at like 60+FPS
Crysis 2 - medium settings (Nooooo) at 25 FPS
and any other of the newest games. These are two parts I would consider in your computer.
Apr 12, 2011Chrome is my overall favorite, Firefox was my original favorite until Chrome - and opera has a lot of nice features but I like Chrome better. Safari has a nice look, but I still like Chrome more. IE is trash, only reason I ever used it for is downloading Chrome on a new install or if something refuses to use any browser except for IE (very rarely)Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
Someone should obviously make a revolutionary browser with features like Opera, nice looks of Safari, UI and speed of Chrome, with the plugins and such of Firefox.
