shut up

Who cares if it's not the best?
Things to have to be the best to be something worth being happy about owning.
I'm sat here on a computer that I got in 2004, and i'm very happy that I have it.

To TS, niiiiiiiice I could really use that tb of storage, i've filled my 145gb internal harddrive and i've only got 9 left on my 250gb external one

thats what people said when they came out with 1g hd or they came out with 1mb of ram.

But come on, honestly, unless you plan to have every app in your start menu open and running and you plan to harbour copius amounts of data, do you really think you'd need that much processing power or storage?

Clearly someone hasn't used vista... lol

seriously though, if you're gaming, it makes sense (although i'm a console fan)

Programmers will use more and more, as it becomes available. It's happened throughout the history of computing, and it will continue to happen.

Mmmm ok, I'll have to agree with you there, I actually do have a laptop running vista, only dual core, i think it runs rather smoothly. I'd always see what thing run like on a less powerful system though instead of jumpin straight into the deep end with Quad core!

Music possibly, however theres only one game thats specs define Quad core in their minimum requirements and thats spore.

Yes, because what you ought to do when buying a new PC is look at games that are out now, and just barely meet the spec.
You can't fully future proof anything(as much as I hate that phrase), but you can try.
#24
I do realise its impossible to futureproof because as soon as i bought and built my pc it was outdate by newer components; however i do agree with you that you can try.

i wish i had a new computer.

Not to many programs are written to utilized all four cores.

I just upgraded myself:
Intel E7200 Duo Core Processor Clocked at 2.53 Ghz
Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 512mb
Asus P5K-SE motherboard
OCZ 4gb DDR2 Dual Channel Gold Ram

All for just under 600 dollars.
Upgrading to a SATA hard drive and a new case, new speakers once I get a job, that will be ~200.00.

I can play Crysis on all High 8x. No vista so I can't see how well it will run on ultra-high.

I think the processor is a little excessive right now, I would have waited a year or two so that more games and software are programmed to use the four cores. All your choice though. I went budget on my new pc.

I've moved away from asus mobo's, I've bought 2 in the past both of which blew themselves up within th first year of use, in the case of my friends pc it went within the first few weeks of him having his pc :S

And seriously (I'm like super serial right now) Crysis still run properly on his machine (I'm talking 1920x1200 with Ultra High + 8x AA)

Yeah, atm, quad core is a bit of a waste unless you have some extreme/specialist needs, dual cores are nice for a bit more responsiveness when multitasking.

At the end of the day, ur always best buying slightly less than the top of the range, cuz althou you're "futureproofed (tm)", you pay to much of a premium

My brother told me they were top of the line.

I blew threw three gigabyte motherboards in a year with my old PC.
Never gonna buy them again. Capacitor issues IIRC.

Maybe it's because I used gigabyte AGP motherboards three years ago.

Nice setup, I built one recently, I know a guy who spent £2000 on a setup, gets 300 fps on CS:S, I spent £200, got a 3.0GHz dual-core, 2GB RAM, 8600GT, I get 250 fps for a tenth of the price :P I would spend more on a computer, but the only game I play is Counter-Strike: Source, which isn't that demanding (:
