i need a new computer

Post by Coaltrain615 on 10/13/2013, 3:12 pm

can you guys give me a link to a cheap computer? i would like it to have 30-120 fps.i have decided my normal 3fps wont cut it. i just want to play mc, but i am tired of my slow computer.
i would prefer a laptop but a desktop is fine. i dont have much money right now though and i need to find a good way to make good money. i would like to have a pc that can handle battlefield, but im fine without it.

Computers

Post by IndianGuy on 10/13/2013, 5:01 pm

if you're looking for a computer you're going to have to be more specific then that, but it's obvious you're looking for a gaming computer. I need to know a price range before I can help you and if you want a gaming laptop that might run you a little high desktops have more potential but if you're looking for mobility then a laptop is you're best choice. So I just need to know a price range, if you want a laptop or a desktop and what exactly you're looking to run and how well.

im looking for a gaming computer that also runs internet browser well, i would prefer a laptop for mobility. i would like at least a normal 30fps. i would like it to be able to run battlefield, but im fine without able to run battlefield, i mainly want minecraft. im not looking for a really fancy computer, id say im looking for a laptop running 30 or more fps but id love a laptop running 60 or more fps. i currently have about $25 but im thinking of doing the paper route becasue that gets me about $100 a month. i prefer laptops for mobility becasue i bring them around with me a bit. im not very concerned about battery life, i usually have it plugged in.

I personally don't think it's possible to get a decent gaming laptop in that range unless you have a hookup with the manufacturer, but with Black Friday/Cyber Monday coming up, it might not be undoable.  Indianguy proooobably knows more about PC building than me, so he will no doubt have better advice, but my suggestion would be to look out for sales on sites like NewEgg.com Last year they had daily firesales from Thanksgiving to New Years and I was able to build a pretty powerful tower for ~$700 not including the monitor and other necessary auxiliaries. Typically speaking, laptops are more expencive and don't last as long as towers. Also, you're stuck with what you buy. It's nearly impossible to switch out video cards and such in a laptop while it's a simple matter with a tower.

Here's the majority of the breakdown on my tower. Please note the graphics card at the bottom that I had to buy off of Amazon while the rest of the parts were from NewEgg. Also, I'm not sure how much a PC or Mac OS will cost you. As a CompSci major I always got access to those for free. The cheapest would prolly be a Unix based OS at the awesome price of FREE but good luck using it if you never have before.

heres whats up, im sick of my 1-3fps laptop, lately it has been very crappy.i got it at first just to play minecraft not really careing about fps, but i just cant keep up with the fps and im sick of it. im not necessarily looking for a gaming laptop, but a laptop that can run minecraft smoothly. another thing is i barely have any money and need to get money. i think i will probably get an asus, but it will take me a year or 2 to get the money, maybe more. i would like a pre built laptop because i have never built a comuter,but i could find out or have someone else build it. and nico, could you maybe help me if im gona get an asus, just help me with getting setup or something like that.

I bought a laptop this summer for $600, runs beautifully, but it was discontinued. This thing:

Same exact specs, but bigger hard drive and screen. Currently on sale.

When I got it, first thing I loaded up was minecraft. 75 fps. Now with all my other games in shiz, I get a solid 60 fps with a hi res texturepack. Can run games, [Far as ive tested] such as warframe, TF2, and Tekkit/Hexxit with solid fps.

EDIT: Also, here's the link to my exact machine. The one I linked you to was one that is like, literally the same thing. Just different screen and hard drive. Turns out, it's not discontinured, just out of stock.

im not wanting to build a computer or build with custom parts and order parts seperate, and im not looking for extreme fps,although it would be nice. the one zwall showed me (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834230988) is what id love. portable, nice fps, and reliable. once i get good money i will probably buy  that or something like it.

If you also want to boost your FPS, I STRONGLY suggest Optifine, my FPS has been well fortified by it, shopworld is actually bearable for me.
