  2. Am looking at my desktop and the RAM indicator is at 55% with nothing much running, yesterday had a lot of windows open and was running at 78% !! I have 6g of DDR3 ram Is this OK
  3. So if I did want to put in another 4870 later on, what MB do you recomend ? Thanks for the feedback with the RAM, will make sure it is triple, 1333 or 1600, much dif ?
  4. Old PC is 17" laptop which I have been using for work and now work from home, so would like to upgrade. "Triple Channel Ram" ??????? What is the dif ?
  5. Have got some great feedback in a couple of threads regarding new PC 99.9% (availablity an issue, so another question) Coolmaster ATX Case Antec TruePower 750W i7 920 Gigabyte EX58UD3R 6GB Kingston DDR3 Ram 1333 2x1TB Seagate HD Gigabyte 4870 1GB Vista Home Prmium 64bit OS Benq 24" 2400HD Monitor Shop has suggested Antec Tryepower 750W (they have in stock) Also MSI X58 Pre E MB (they have in stock) Am looking to put another 4870 into it in 6 months so questions are 1. Suggested Power Supply ok? 2. MSI MB worse/better/same, given extra card later 3. For an extra $50 should I go the 275 896MB ? 4. Any other thoughts ?
  6. Am looking at purchasing one of these to hook up to HD TV for Photo's/Movies etc Any one know/like/dislike anything about them
  7. Thanks for the feedback, will take most/all in reviewing system 32 bit or 64 bit OS Any problems / downside ? Happy to go to 6GB of Ram for the 64, but is it worth it ?
  8. 99% Finally decided on new system i7 920 Gigabyte EX58UDR3 4G Kingston DDR3 1333 2 x 1 TB Seagate HD Pioneer DVD Gigabyte 4870 1GB Graphics Coolmaster ATX case Coolmaster 650 Xtreme Benq HD 22" monitor Any slight tweeks suggested
  9. Maybe you'd be better off with a Dell Studio XPS Desktop S210303AU. Grab the 3 year warranty, and a monitor elsewhere (e.g. the BenQ G2412HD). Thanks for the feedback, but adding extra storage costs megabucks and the video card is 512mb which according to other replies is not up to it Perhaps a trusty retailer in Sydneys west (Parramatta) could help, know one ?
  10. Good advise, I live near Parramatta, anyone have a recommended shop ? Sorry for the stuff around
  11. No it wouldn't. The machine you wrote about looks like it is from a shop, and that shop is not very good - they don't seem to care if the whole computer explodes in six months! The power supply is from a terrible brand, and the computer is too expensive. The parts are also not quite right for what you want your computer to do: as Dasa said, the graphics card is too powerful, the CPU is too expensive and there isn't enough RAM. Are you able to build your own computer out of parts, or will you want to order from a computer shop? Yes it is from a shop, Crows Nest...... seems to get good reviews, perhaps just the wrong build, as far as me building a computer......I may as well flush the $$ down the toilet If you can think of a shop bought good package that fits the bill would appreciate.

  13. With all due respect (and I'm sure it is a fair amount) you may be mistaken (though I concede @ 1080p a 1GB card is reasonably, albeit that the 4770 will certainly do very well). The OP appears to have more or less asked for an HTPC, with the capacity for a reasonable amount of gaming, and hasn't asked to spend all of $2,000, rather he's asked for a capability. From that I'd infer that he'd get more utility from one of the above systems, a pair of 1.5TB drives, a Blu-Ray reader and $400 in his back pocket. Either system is pretty damn powerful and has plenty on tap for the future - the additional return from a C2Q, Core i7 or Phenom II X4 would be fairly minimal so I'd stick with my recommendation. Those builds also do line up well with the threads you linked - which is what made me suggest that perhaps the links weren't completely needed :) Thank you for the feedback. Would the below be the goods, perhaps with a bit more storage? PC User fastest non-overclocked PC $2,350.00 Now only 2,250.00 !!!

  14. Am going to buy PC, have just purchased LCD TV and would like to connect the 2, I like RTS games and my wife takes a zillion photo's Not sure if I need an i7, just so probably an E6800 with suitable MB, graphics card ATI (apparently for sound) Hard drives a plenty, OS on one and balance for storage (not quite sure what this means, but seems to be the go, RAID what for the rest would be nice to keep under $2,000 but not life and death.
  15. Have purchased new HD LCD TV and am about to purchase new PC. Would like to connect the two, Games are mildly interesting would need DVI to HDMI, suggestions on Graphics card ?
