Here is what I'm looking at that fits in with my budget. Can you tell me if it's fair enough. Will it work for the new Lego Universe for MiniWarhead too?
Packard Bell iXtreme 5622uk Tower PC
Intel Core i3 530 Processor
64-bit 2.93GHz, 4MB Cache
Genuine Windows (R) 7 Home Premium
3GB DDR3 Memory
640GB Hard Drive
4 x Front, 4 Rear USB ports
Built-in wireless connectivity
Wireless Keyboard and mouse
welcome razgriz, the resident computer guy! im going to go in a list of all of this: y being good and n being bad and anything else being describitory.(i don't know if thats a word but i like it.)
Intel Core i3 530 Processor: y
64-bit 2.93GHz, 4MB Cache:y
Genuine Windows (R) 7 Home Premium: kick-ass
3GB DDR3 Memory: oh heeeeeeeeellll yeeeeeaaaaah
640GB Hard Drive: mind-gasm(my laptop only has 320)
Integrated Graphics: what kind of card is it? this doesn't help
4 x Front, 4 Rear USB ports: y
Built-in wireless connectivity: standard but good
Wireless Keyboard and mouse: why not?
look, the point is it doesn't have vista. vista sucks ass.
i would know, i have it. nothing but problems with it. whats with the short sentences? i don't know. help. please. as for the hard drive, is it solid-state? if it is, good. get it. if not, i would think about it. because solid-state basiclly says it works really fast, thats what macs have and thats why their fast. it probably doesn't have solid-state, considering the hard-drive size, but check anyways.
specs of my laptop:
AMD athlon 64X2 GL-64
15.6" 16.9 HD LED LCD
320 GB HDD
4 GB Mem RAM
DVD Super Multi DL Drive
Multi in 1 card reader
Windows Vista Home Premium(never get vista. you will regret it.)
if i could make a suggestion, i know some laptops that kick the shit out of that PC, i need to ask my dad for the link, he teachs me everything i know so i trust him. i know you said you don't want a laptop, but they have some advantages that a desktop just can't compete with. as i've stressed enough, vista sucks so bad i'm backing up my steam files so i can make the switch to 7, so if you see a small rectangular white sticker with the windows logo that say: Windows Vista just walk to the OS section of the store, take 7 Home Premium of the shelf, THEN get the computer. anyways, hope this helped. best of luck in buying a computer.
