@Xengs. i finally found out the difference between an AMD phenom and a phenom black. Black denotes a fully unlocked multiplier (for easier over clocking) they also run about 10% faster as standard than a OEM chip. like the OEM will run at 2.8 ghz and the black will run at 3.2 ghz or something around that range.
Hmm, it honestly really depends on how much you are willing to spend .. for each piece i guess.
For example, I bought a GTX570 when i bought my computer. Guessing back then it was worth a good $400 AU .. it lasted me a good 2 years, so Since the release of BF3.
And now when it died i bought my current card the GTX770 .. which was $440. I estimate it would last at least another 2 years before i would upgrade.
But you kind of have to balance it out, because i doubt you can just buy one part by part.
I dont really know anything about computers, but im guess if you dont have enough ram even if you get a good card you computer or motherboard wont support it .. but if you get a good CPU its pointless if your card is worthless. Might as well save up a good $1500 and go all out. (convert from AUS to whatever currency you use.)
I have a quick Gaming PC question. I was looking into buying it piece by piece until I can afford all of the parts. It then occurred to me that the pieces might obsolete. I was just wondering, how fast do the parts obselete? I was just wondering, is it better to wait and buy all of the pieces at once, or get most of them now and the rest later as I can afford them?
My saves have gotten corrupt at least 10 times due to the famous Blue Screen of Death back when I was running Windows xp.. Whenever I did Alt+Tab, my GPU would panic and my computer would crash.. Oh good old Windows xp
Ya know I actually love that I got my save corrupt because now i'm able to rediscover all the things and i've forgotten some of the Hex codes : / lol but i've got them back in my head again! might do a few Tuts on the things I remembered...
