What do you think is the best computer? I like to play games on it. I want it really really fast. And I use the internet a lot. Anyone have a suggestion? Can you give me a few? But not more than $600 :)

Are you looking to buy just the computer or full set with a screen and stuff? Here are the specs i'd suggest for gaming: 1 : A super graphics processing card - When it comes to gaming, the GPU does more hard work than the processor, I would suggest going for 2 ATI HD 5770 in cross fire set up, or one 5870, but having 2 hd 5770's is cheaper and almost same as the 5870. 2: RAM Ram also plays a major role in gaming and a lot more applications, go in for the high end rams by Corsair, like dominator and likes. 3: Overclocking If you don't know about this, then and don't wish to take the risk in overclocking, you should save up your money on buying a cheaper motherboard. 4: Cooling Go for corsair h50 liquid cooling system, reduces noise and keeps your processor cooler. Also helps you when the rig gets old and you plan to overclock your cpu. 5: CPU I have a amd phenom II x4 965 BE, the stock fan was noisy, very noisy. Make sure you youtube for the processor stock fan noise before you make your mind up about processors. 6: HDD SSD's are the in thing now, they're fast, good for gaming but costly, very costly! buy a 30 GB SSD and the other 1 TB WD green hard disks, 64 mb cache best of luck!

I also went into market and search and canvass which one is really good nowadays especially computers good for games. According to some computers sales clerk. They would suggest to have the AMD quad core processor. If you are a games enthusiast this processor is good for you because its really fast and at the same time its clear because the pixels is much higher compare to the intel. Intel processor is good but not as much as good with the AMD processor. Its also affordable/

AMD processors are surly good but they have heating problems if anyone is not using A.C. then it might be a problem.....but those who have ac at their room and willing to keeping it on while on the pc...then i don't think there is any problem(surly heating will occure while pc is on for long time such as 5 to 6 hr continious)

I am not aware of that, but thank you for sharing it to us. Now I guess I need to save more money for buying ac in our room. So it wont happened just like what you said here. But I am not using the computer for too long as well. I may used it for 2-3 hours only and that's very seldom.

CPU: 2.10GHZ Memory: 2G DisplayCard: 512M Independent Above are all the lowest paramer for playing the games connecting the net about the Desktop. Of course ,you can choose the part that your fond brand. what my meaning is you had better buy the suitable part,then package it . I don't know the price in your country,but in our China ,the $600 can buy a greater one than above.

That is a lot of money Sadsad, you can have a AMD quad core for 5k, 3k for motherboard, 4k for 4gig RAM, HD 320 Gb is 3k. Video card 1mb 1,5k, the tower case for 1,5k, keyboard set, mouse and camera from A4tech will cost 2k. a 21inch LED Screen is 10k. you will have to ask the technician for assistance in assembling the part, it should cost anywhere from 500 pesos plus another 500 pesos for formating. You can do anything with these specs

I've got to say, if you really want an awesome gaming rig, your best bet is to build your own. Your value for the money is almost double, not kidding. And it's a lot easier than you might think; there are tons of pages on the net that can walk you through it so well, the only thing easier would be if someone came to your house and put it together for you. Check out techsupportforum.com, under tech support forum hardware support building, there is a thread there by a person looking to build a gaming computer for around 600, and one of the replies even has a list of potential parts. I don't game, but my son does, and he and his friend put together a nice tower for right around 500. If you're not sick in the head like me and you just don't want the hassle of building one yourself, I'd go with a manufacturer like Dell or HP. You're likely looking for something with at least 3 GB of ram and a dual core processor, and to be honest, I've had great luck with Dell's online outlet. I've bought three refurbished computers through them, and I know a lot of people don't care for their customer support, but they've honestly always been great with me.
