Hey there, what awesome gaming gear are you planning on getting from Newegg today?
im trying to price out a basic entry level gaming pc to run house design softwaree, free cad softwre and steam games on
Richard L.
sweet
so do you want me to show you a recommended unit?
actually i would like to know of a resource or website to go to learn todays standards for pcs... back 12 years ago in high school i was a pc guru then life happened and now im lost in all the specs and i want to understand where we are these days in computers
Richard L.
ok
i got some sites for you ;-)
thanx
Richard L.
:-)
its no offence i just like to understand what im getting
Richard L.
not a problem. im just like you
i got tons of sites ;-)
ok
Richard L.
how do those look?
Are you still there? What games do you play?
hey sorry i was book marking the sites for later and got sidetracked that windows is forcing everyone to windows 10 next year
Richard L.
ok, no they are not ;-);-)
if you want the free upgrade, you have to get it by july of next year
as long as you didnt accept the free upgrade, you wont get the upgrade without warning :-)
Richard L.
that was an error on their part last week
but as i said, if you didnt accept the free upgrade, it will not upgrade you
o ok
Richard L.
i read that article last week
and there are several other websites that have other reports about it as well :-)
but if i could see the recomended and maybe if ou have a high dollar rig so i could compare them that would be helpful in my computer search
Richard L.
sure
give me a few minutes to find you one ok?
ok np
Richard L.
thanks for your patience
seeing as you do this i figured you had about 10 rigs already bookmarked... lol
Richard L.
LOL
yeah no problem
Richard L.
nah, every person is different
and theres tons of units that come and go so thats not a good thing to do
oh and the motherboard MUST have a paralell port for my cnc machine on the board not through a pci card or any other means
Richard L.
no current machines come with a parallel port
youre gonna have to get a port replicator for that :-)
no it wont work for the cnc controller
Richard L.
then youre gonna have issues
parallel ports havent been on new computers for some time
ok well i guess one hurdle at a time may have to run the old pc for the cnc and new for the software '
Richard L.
thats a great idea
wlike i said life happened and 12 years past
Richard L.
thats what i would recommend
and why am i seeing alot of motherboards with 2 lan connections? whats the advantage
Richard L.
you can combine the internet speed via both
or connect to 2 different lans
or use it to setup a server for pass through network access
tons of stuff :-)
so theorfore have your omuter on network 1 and nework 2 at 10/100/1000 or onme at a time with 2 connections to network 1 at 20/200/2000?
Richard L.
yup
o ok
Richard L.
yeah
and i know usb 3 ports are blue but what are usb red is that 4?
Richard L.
nope
the red ones need more power
so when the pc ports are red, they have high power to give to the device
o ok
Richard L.
the device has a red tip it needs extra power
o ok
Richard L.
yup
good to know
Richard L.
;-)
also on dvi connections
Richard L.
what about the dvi connectors?
what are the types or what is a resource for them
Richard L.
ok
one sec
booooom ;-);-);-)
from one of the sites i gave you too ;-);-);-)
yeah i noticed and like i said i will go back to them later but dont wanna occupy too much time
Richard L.
gotcha
also which is better now as far as processor i know its a preference thing but i know befoe when i was building amd was a little more stable and not quite as expensive is this still the case?
Richard L.
the intel processors are better
i3 - good, i5 - better i7- best
o ok
Richard L.
yup
also i know im way out there on this but is there such a thing as a good xternal video card for laptop... i ask because i have a great laptop thats got an i7 in it and its used as a desktop due to broken screen already but it maxes out at 1024x 768
otherwise the laptop will run all the software but i want better graphics
Richard L.
only msi and alienware have laptops that currently have options to connect an external gpu
:-(
Richard L.
yup
but did you try connecting it to a tv or monitor?
both
it was only a 720p screen to begin with cause it was another 250 througfh dell to get the 1080
so i knew it was shitty at the time but i was using it for other purposes so the money seemed bettewr spent on other things
Richard L.
oh, ok
another question is what would it take to run windows 7 on a rackmount style server would it be just load software or would it be possible even
Richard L.
it depends on if the drivers are available for the server that youre getting
o ok
Richard L.
yup
So would you like to comeback when you have additional questions and are ready to get some awesome gaming gear?
yep i appriciate the help and have fun
