Can you explain that to me in big words please? :P I can barley understand what you are saying


:withstupid:

Quad-Core Processor
1024MB NVIDIA Video Card
6GB RAM


4GB is much more suitable. No program or game utilizes that kind of memory. It will work on x64, it's just unneccessary.

Ermm...

Well you already have a PS3 and a TV (is it HD btw?). If there is a computer monitor plug in your TV you could just use that which would save you a chunk of money. If I was you I'd just build a super-computer from the Dell website and get a cheap desk.

Nothing to see here, move along

If you have a lot of systems to one TV you no longer have to plug it out and plug the other in.

Husky I got bored and made this on the Dell website with that XPS builder.

Specs:
Intel® Core™ i7-920 (2.66GHz, 8MB cache)
Genuine Windows Vista® 64-bit Home Premium (English) Service Pack 1
Aluminum with Clearcoat Chassis
6GB Tri-Channel DDR3 at 1066MHZ (3x2GB DIMM)
SLi, Dual nVidia GeForce GTX280 1024MB
1.5TB Performance RAID 0 (2 x 750GB SATA-II, 7200 RPM HDDs)
Dual Drives: Blu-ray Disc (BD) Burner (Writes to DVD/CD/BD) and DVD-ROM
Dell Ultrasharp 3007WFP-HC 30-inch Widescreen Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Dell High Color 30 inch UltraSharp Widescreen Digital Flat Panel
3Yr Ltd. Warranty- Advance Exchange
Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium
Logitech Z-5500 Speaker System

All of that cost $5,058 and you could make it even cheaper if you wanted to by getting a smaller monitor, only one Blu-Ray drive etc. That leaves you with $950 for a desk, games and all that shiz.

Nothing to see here, move along

Well, my list is as follows:

- Epic gaming rig. (Bigass monitor, should encompass entire FOV is possible :P)
- Decent keyboard, mouse, headphones, for comfort.
- Good quality sound. I have 7.1 surround sound in my shoebox room, and it fucking owns.
- A comfy chair is paramount.
- All controls in close proximity. Heating, Volume, etc. (I'm fussy about how warm / cold my room is)
- All games, Music, pen, phone etc within reach of chair.
- Food stash.
- Alcohol stash, if you're into drinking alone. (I, personally, am)

Husk, just when your on the XPS builder make the specs the same as mine. You can change some like the dual drives of Blu-Ray which is kind of unecessary, you only need one. There is a 30" monitor there too which is included in the $5,085.

Any more questions, ask here.

Lol.

Before you do any of this shit I'd make an account on the Dell website. You need to sign up first before you can deliver. Once you've done that just choose what specs you want and click add to cart.

Should be as simple as that.

Fuck No... My dad can do all that Turbo Tax look alike bullshit. I've got a good question.. If I use this as a original gaming PC... can I use it as a computer for General things? (Recording games , Doing Homework , Coming on TGTAP , etc.)
