Hello, I have [bleep] pc with [bleep] graphic card. It's intergrated graphics (64mb). 4GB ram and Intel Core i5-2400S @ 2.50GH processor. Should I upgrade my Graphics card and something else or should I just build a new PC? And If I upgrade my graphics card will I be able to play games like DayZ, Far Cry 3 etc..
Should I buy or just upgrade?

Just buy a new PCI-X graphic card, and you'll be able to play them. No need to buy a new PC. i5 is powerful enough.
I'd consider also getting more RAM, like up to 8Gb if your mainboard lets do it.

Hello Lemurian. Where can I find info about my mainboard? And can you link me a good graphic card that would be fit to my pc? Cause I don't think i need a very good one cause my pc won't be able to use the full power of it :? (I don't really know what i'm talking about. This is my PC (How it looks like the spec are custom)

I would advice against trying to turn this business class computer into a gaming rig.
It has a Mini PCI-E slot, so a decent gaming video card would not be an option.
240W is the Standard Power supply, so that would need upgrading, almost impossible to find one that would fit in this case.
You would likely end up with heat issues being such a small case and does not look as though you could add more fans.
Not worth the hassle and cost and you would be very disappointed with the performance.
If you would like to build your own? we can configure a build for you to consider.
Please give us your budget and in which country you will purchase parts.
Apart from gaming, what other things will you use it for, Photo/video editing? CAD applications? or mainly web browsing, watching videos, some office work?

Thanks for the info.
I have put a build up for you to consider using German sites as this will at least give you prices in Euros.
All quality parts that will give you very good gaming and application performance.
Parts list does not include an Operating System, > http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/3NwJc

You do not need to buy a cooler/heasink as that is included with the CPU. I should also make you aware that if you do use a cooler/heatsink that is different from the one included in a boxed retail CPU, (as listed) you will void the AMD warranty. If the CPU is then damaged, you will have to legitable claim.Onboard Ethernet (1) 10/100/1000 Mbps. you do not need an addition card to access the internet.
2 Hard Drives are included.
Reasons. OS, Programs and games on one drive.
All your Date, (My Docs, Pictures, Music, Videos and Downloads from the Net, go on the second drive + an image of the drives and daily backups.
This gives better performance and safety. If your OS drive fails, or gets corrupted, you Data is safe.
If you think you will go ahead with the build, You can download the user manuals from the manufacturers websites so you can learn about the hardware and software used.
We are here to help, so any question, please post.

I think that's what i wanted to ask. I'm still think of buying 2 hardwares but with smaller storage like 500gb Each. And maybe you could offer a cheaper build? Like 720-800 Euros.

If you need to buy a OS, you're probably looking at 1k Euros. And assuming you buy the parts from PC part picker, you'll only be able to use 4GB's of RAM. Source: http://msdn.microsof...imits_windows_7
So, that being said, you'd need to get your hands on a x64 and not x86 (32Bit)

Don't go out pirating the OS. That's just plain stupid and will probably just lead to a massive amount of security issue.
Posted 21 May 2014 - 11:20 AM
I've done it all my life. I won't start buying the OS now. I'm currently using that kind of OS. I have 0 problems with it. And in my country piracy isn't even a crime. (maybe it is, but no1 cares)

You live in Germany right? http://www.zdnet.com...own-7000018915/
It is illegal where you live. I wouldn't advise pirating even if it is legal.
It's ulitmally your choice, but don't say I didn't warn you. Like the example of you getting free "giveaways". It's free, but malicious.
