Yeah, I know how to build a PC. But unless you are a serious gamer and want the most powerfull gaming PC in the world. I would recommend you just getting a prebuilt one from your local high street retailer, as the price difference between a custom and prebuilt PC isn't all that much different.However if you wish to build your own PC, then go ahead and bounce some questions of me.
DG is the MAN! for this kind of stuffs. btw, I haven't tried the PS3 yet! lol. Been busy reading. I'll let you know what happen to the PS3 once I tried it. If it's still working after it fell to my hands.
I'm okay with PS3, can't afford the PS4. Your kids should teach me!
LOL. Have you played first person shooter games like Call of Duty? What have you played on the PS3?!
Lol! I only played Tekken vs street fighter. We haven't bought lots of games yet. Yes and no. Yes I do play first person shooting game and No I played Medal of Honor, just the same as COD. And I played it on PSP back then. I like fighting games and shooting. I likr being a sniper. Lol. And yes, God of War too! And since DG here convince me of Bayonetta, I'll nag my bf to get that too. Do you or your hubby or kids have suggestion for multiplayer games? We're searching for multiplayer games. So his brothers could play too.
I'm not a serious gamer, but that can change because I've always preferred PC gaming vs. PS3/Xbox (all those freakin' buttons... like how the hell can you memorize where the circle/triangle/square buttons are? And the TWO analog sticks that are always inverted. COD looks fun, but it's not fun when you don't know how to run AND aim at the same time ) So yeah... I prefer button mashing on a keyboard I already have certain parts like ... a gaming keyboard gaming glasses and a processor. That's it, haha. I have NO idea what to look for in a motherboard though. The processor I got is the 3rd, gen intel core i7-3770. I don't know anything to do with motherboards ... what brand to look at first due to superior quality or .. what specs I'm supposed to look at (besides it being compatible with my processor). I need help there lol.And my PC is going to be mainly used for photo and video editing. And I mean hardcore photo & video editing... I've worked professionally as a photographer before and with Lightroom and Photoshop open and doing other multiple of things... I would just rather build my own PC and have it fit my needs specifically rather than buying one already built and then having to add more RAM and all that.
OK, from everything you have just tolded me I think it would be a good idea for you build yourself a PC.I would recommend you get an brand ASUS motherboard as they are one of the leading motherboard manufacturers, you will need to check that whatever model motherboard there is out there is compatible with your CPU. Since you have an Intel Core i7 3770, which is an Ivy Bridge Processor I would recommend this model You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Login. A little tip when shopping for motherboard is to check that they have all the slots you are gonna need for you perpherals. Also if you are looking to install 2 GPUs/Graphic Cards you need to be sure that they have the ability to run 2 GPUs.You will have to have at least 4GB of RAM, but preferable the more the better as RAM prices are cheap these days, plus the more RAM you have the faster your applications. Also you will need to look into getting a good GPU/Graphics Card both Nvidia and AMD's Radeon brand make excellent CPUs. A power supply capable of powering everything in your PC, I recommend this one You are not allowed to view links.

I'm a Network Engineer. I know how to build pc's. I've burnt many times by Western Digitals. So far, Seagate has been the best hard drives around. I do agree, more ram you have installed, the better it is. Always check the FSB (Front Side Bus) Speeds on the ram and to the motherboard you intend to buy. Faster the FSB is, better it is.I do like Asus m/b but I do prefer Gigabyte boards. However, both are very reliable.Pentium is best and still reigns supreme. However, I won't touch celerons.. (I can't believe they're still selling them) Grab the lastest Pentium ICore 7 Version 4 and soon 5.Grab a case the uses clips to slide the drives in and same with the motherboard.. Makes life easier and quicker to build and fix. Make sure the Case has fans on top of the case, as hot air raises.. more fans on the fans, the merrier.. just don't want a fridge, as some people do lol!!! Also, bigger the case, easier to get your hands into it.P.SI instrusted my husband how to build his pc via a telephone from Australia to UK. However, he didn't listen to me not to buy AMD board and processor... As they still haven't figured out the conflicts on the Northbridge.. so after 5yrs of working, it wouldn't work... However, he didn't folk out a lot of money for. You can SAVE money building it yourself, if you know where to look and buy.. I know where to go in Australia.. and some places in UK but I very little ideas where to go in USA, except two or 3. Look for places that buy parts in bulk, like warehouses or factory outlets.. There is a few in Brisbane, Australia that have these.Message me privately if you need more help.Cheers,From a female Geekeet
Thanks Bozana Yay for geeks Yes, we will save money building it with the specs I want because my hubby actually works in the computer industry. He gets a lot of accommodations through work so I actually got my processor for approx. half price.I know how to build a PC mentally, but I've never actually built one physically. I'm just making sure I don't miss anything! Many family members of mine are geeks and they know how to build a computer. I can ask them to help, but they are so opinionated on what I should and shouldn't buy I'd rather not deal with them.Thanks for the advice & tips! I may very well PM you... a lot. I'm just so picky on what to get, I have trouble deciding and then I'm one of those girls who are not just about function, but style as well so I went and picked out a case that not only functions well (slide in drive bays and all that) but had little feet that makes the case look like a sea turtle. Yeah, I know.. my PC building priorities are funny.
I like being a bad as$ sniper too... much easier than running around and trying to shoot people, lol. Those damn analog sticks.. I'm telling you God of War is awesome. I think my favorites are...Devil May Cry & Bioshock. Dante is hot & the storylines in both are crazy. Bioshock is a bit scary because it's so messed up. Uh, do you have rating preferences on multiplayer games? How old is his brother? My kids play multiplayer games obviously, but I don't think you like stuff like Perry The Playtpus games or Skylanders... LMAO. OMG OMG OMG.. pick up Limbo.
Do be picky. If you have to shell out a lot more money, then do so.
I am starting to hate the buttons and the analog of PS3. They defeated me because of those damned buttons! it's not the same with PSP. So I hate it. LOL. Yeah! Sniper is easy since you don't have to go all over the place. Iit also means you don't have to die every time you round up on the corner and didn't see the enemy. I know! LOL, God of War is awesome but those big things sometimes wants me to be smashed into tiny pieces that I just have to say "be my guest". Meaning I died! His brother are 10, 13, and 19, I think. LOL. But hey, I like the children's game too! I wanted Super mario for PS3. Is there Super Mario? LOL. We're searching for Little Big Planet. It's cute. hehe. Saw a gameplay in youtube.
Thanks DG. I do like Asus, so I will look into that motherboard. And yeah, I'm thinking of actually going with 16GB of RAM rather than 12GB. I know 12 is enough, but I'd rather have too much than just shy of enough.I don't even know what peripherals I am going to need/use yet so WTH am I supposed to look for?! Ackk. I, at least, have picked out my case lol --> You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Login . I think I'm going with that. All I know for peripherals is that I like lots of USB ports for I will have my wacom tablet hooked up most of the time in conjunction with my EHDs (since I take lots of pics daily, I need to backup a lot). So I need extras open. I already have my monitor too. An IPS Dell monitor that needs to be hooked up via HDMI. Uhh, I don't know what else at this point.And I was thinking of using a SSD just for my OS. Not sure what size/brand I should get? Everything else, I'm just going with the regular 1TB of HD ...probably going with Western Digital or Seagate.Thanks for the help!

Uh....OMG, so I just remembered something from God of War. Did DG rec you that? Anyways, in the game, have you gotten to Aphrodite yet? If not, then prepare If so, then who all saw it? The 10 & 13 year olds?!
Oh yeah! Aphrodite, I played that scene so many damn times in GOWIII it never gets old. Funny how they always have a scene like that in every GOW game even the PSP games.
OF COURSE you would play it over and over... you are a guy after all. & You went and sent our sweet little Lex the link to it and forgot about the soundcard. I knew I would forget something...
