OP question removed... look through the discussion and answear my latest question...pleace...

inb4, build your own PC, my brother is not really a gamer, but if it does CS:S and at least 30 (mid details) fps on crysis, it will be OK.

I used to think otherwise, but damn, after a few years of experience with them, I agree completely.

I´ve got an acer netbook and it crashes alot.

Also the graphic/sound card is a small chip on the motherboard prolly.

My acer notebook runs like awesome, or maybe is it because it's still new?

is it a way to kinda disable the shared memory and only use the 1GB?

Yea, your best option is to build one yourself, much cheaper. I have an Acer PC and its a piece of crap.

4650 are pretty outdated now, id be impressed if they could run Crysis at mid specs decently.
#11
Maybe he should use an "choose components, get it built" kid of thing online, but then if it crashes. Isn't a PC just a set of components? form intel, nVidia and such so why would one brand of PCs suck?

GT 130 are worse and they run Crysis at 30 fps (which is enough for me)

If I was you I'd either build my own (or use that site if you can't be bothered) or get an iMac

Any processors to recommend (wtf is quad core different to duo, ...), GFX cards and ... so i can select them in the assemble thing, is Intel® Core™2 Duo E7500 2,93GHz Socket LGA775, 1066MHz, 3MB, 45nm, Boxed w/fan decent enough.

The custom build thing is a lot cheaper than that acer, even if the assemble is better.

Mine is an Acer, and it aces you! It's a really great computer.

You should learn about what components are inside the computer, that's more important than what brand is putting it together.

quad is different to duo -- duo means it has 2 cores, quad means 4, basically a quad can do twice as much at once as a duo (not necessarily twice as fast, although it can be, depending what you're doing..)
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

To the ones saying acer sucks, I have an HP which the mobo has failed twice on (on three years), it had crashed around 20-30 times, but a full system recovery did the job.

If the gfx card does the job my brother wants it to do, a worse card(gt 130m) does 200fps on CS:S and 20-25 on crysis, for non-hardcore gamers, 20-25 fps feels fluent, it does for me and im even more a gamer than my brother.

If 2,53ghz and a ATI HD 4650 is decent, should i buy the Acer, the shop is close, so it's not hard to get it repaired on warranty.

It's still better than the one he had before the lightening crushed it. the house inshurance will cover most of the price too.

Will the new computer have a spell-checker?

He isn't a über gamer, he plays like 2-3 hrs a week, and i doubt he will play a gfx hog like Crysis.

I just have one answer for you, Asus computers rape everything else for gameing. I have the G71 laptop, 6 GB of ram, stock, Nivdia Geforce GTX 260M Cuda 1 GB graphics card, Intel Core Duo inside 2.53 ghz processer, 500 GB hard drive, and a bunch of other shit I can't remember, but my laptop has more processing power than any Acer tower will ever have.
And the new G72 laptops are even better.

Asus has a tower out that has 27 Gb of Ram, 2 Terabite hard drive, quad processer, and a bunch of other shit for $1000.

Can't beat Asus

$1000 dollars is a price i could live with, it's like 5 850kr (norwegian currency), which is the price of really budget computers here, the acer costs 7 000kr, which is around 1 195$.

He is not a hardcore gamer. what the HD 4560 does in terms of gaming is exactly what he needs.

^Let's end that stupid discussion, if my brother don't really play gfx hog games, but i think 30 fps on crysis is playable (at least for me). Would that Acer with the HD 4560 and 2,6 Ghz do the job?
#36
depends on the processor.


Pentium 4 is like 2.6GHz but its single core.

my Turion X2 x64 is 2.10GHz but is dual core, so is better for gaming and just general computing

Core 2 Quad is better than Core 2 Duo.

Just to spand your mind a little bit and look at these computers, all are cheap and have way more processing power than HP and Acer.
