Would something like this cover my needs? I mean it's got 4x the needed ram and way more CPU power.
These are the rec specs for EVE
- OS: Windows® XP Service Pack 2 / Vista / 7
- CPU: Intel Pentium® or AMD dual core @ 2 Ghz or greater which supports SSE2
- RAM: 2 GB
- HD space: 20Gb Free Space
- Network: ADSL connection or faster
- Video: ATi Radeon 5750 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
- Drivers: DirectX® 9.0c (included) and latest video drivers
- DVD-ROM : 2 speed DVD reader or greater required.
Meh you could build a much better system than that for same money anyways the GPU on that build is less than the recommended spec
I hear the current card I have is a decent overclocker. Quickly, someone find me a guide on the best way to doing it. I've done it before, but I want to be sure I'm doing it right. Specs are at the bottom of my post.
Go to the card brand website & download the Utilities for it's cards which will allow you to tweak it
EVGA have a program called Precision which allow you to tweak the card & voltage & then stress test it

Fractal Design Define R4 PC Case - White
this has very little in the way of deals, some of the other members here might be able to help you out there, but no doubt that can be brought all the way to ~500 euro
it might be cheaper still to import from the US?

AMD Phenom II X4 965
^AMD is usually cheaper, but run hotter and use more power.
i would consider this an EXCELLENT pc for EVE @720p
they're both seem to be doing their own thing
im just wanting to make sure "more cores" doesn't become THE thing with next gen systems reportedly using 8 cores too :D
But I have the FD Define R4 case in Black Pearl...I love it. Keep in mind top mounting large radiators in it though is not always feasible. Then again I have a 7850 with a closed loop water system with the radiator mounted on teh bottom intake <shrugs>
UK is cheaper than Euros fo aMD but not for intel.
Phenom 2 965 is £70
FX 8320 is £120
Thanks for the input MATRIX and Mr Director. A lot of money to spend to play EVE, but I need to fulfill my vision of having both games running side by side muahahaha.
fook wrong window.
Origins are selling a few games for only 5 quid each just picked up CRYSIS 2 Maximum Edition & Batman Arkham City GOTY
Anyone ever deal with getting ram replaced from G Skill? After much troubleshooting i finally found out a sick of RAM was bad. So now i have to get it replaced under warranty. Mostly wanting to know if its pain or not getting them to replace it.
I am about to get a new PC soon. Currently I have:
Intel X9650 Extreme OC to 4Ghz
Antec Kuhler H2O 920
GTX 260 2X SLI
Nvidia 3D Surround [3X Samsung syncmaster]
So I'm looking into buy a new PC to play games on but I don't want to spend a TON of money on it , I just want something decent that can hold it's own. I spotted this only and was wondering what you guys thought about it.. would it be alright?
AMD FX-4100 3.60GHz,
AMD Radeon HD 6450
Nvidia Geforce 7025 Motherboard
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
They're only charging $550 for it...what do ya think? If someone can build me one better than this that costs less than $650 , It'd be greatly appreciated!
