Computer

Post  Stankey on Wed Apr 22, 2009 12:53 pm

So im home and all that, and im on my bros computer, which now has decided that it likes to restart after getting 2-3mins into a wc3 game. So i think i mite try re-install the game and hope that does something. My computer is at my mates place, and turns out the power supply mite be dead, but it may have also done some dmg to the motherboard cus the power supply is shit :S. So might be some $$

I had this problem before. I think its lack of RAM, cuz I had fiddled around with the ram sticks on my old pc, but didnt fully put it back in place so it was showing something like 500 RAM or w/e and everytime I got into a dota game, it would just die and restart itself. So maybe make sure the RAM sticks are fully in and secure.

You clearly aren't taking into account the fact that Starcraft II comes out at the end of the year with Diablo 3 also going to be released before the end of the year. So at this point in time hot specs would be good.

just got back from mates place, he had bought all the stuff for my comp, and he just put it together. Ive come home 2 do some work, but hes gna install and test it etc.

He managed to get a athon 2.7Ghz dual core instead of 2.4 so yay, and got a kick ass power supply which is same as digbys (yay hopefully this can solve my recurrent power supply problems) which the guy he got stuff off had been using for 2 months for same price i was gna pay for a shit one. the g-card is the 8800GT. Ill try get full stuff later. Oh and 2gb ddr2 ram.

I have to ask, what OS are you using though? If its vista = fun fail.

What'd it cost altogether? Think you said before, can't remember Razz. And I know some of the specs were "salvaged" from prev com like you said ^^"
