# 1 Ideal PC for full HD?
06-05-2010, 01:03 PM
Can you guys recommend or post some computers that can play games like STO in full high detail? If you have a computer that runs full HD without lag, I'd appreciate posting what computer you have, as well as if you could post an example of it. It would be ideal if the computer was $950 US or less.

Thanks.

Post your price range like Zodi-emish said. All I can tell you is that unless you are building it yourself, you will be spending a hefty amount of money. All I can suggest is looking at PC companies and find their gaming PCs. I also suggest staying away from Dell and Gateway. I don't like Gateway's computers and I've heard horrible customer service stories about Dell.

No, that's not necessary. Just the tower, if you must.

I'd suggest browsing NewEgg.com's between $700 and $1000 section.

From there, find a system with at least 4 GB Ram and a mid-high video card (for example, Geforce 250 or better or Radeon 5650 or better). 1 GB of video card memory is also a good point.

Anyways, here's one that (including shipping) is under $900:

Ok so to build it yourself

i first picked this combo KIT

AMD phenom X6 core CPU
4 Gigs of ram
the mother board can be upgraded to 16 gigs of ram
700 watt power supply with 6 sata connectors, and two PIC express power connectors ( 1 x 6 pin 1x 6 +2 pin)
and a 1TB 7200 RPM, and 32 MB cache hard drive.

for the color I picked the COOLER MASTER Intel Core i7 compatible V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler
I know it says I7, but it also support the phenom lines, and it's a good one.

Now you need a good video car so I picked MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
1 gig of video ram, DX 11, HDMI, displayport, and DVI. ( it will run it with no problems )

Last you need a dvd/cd drive, so I went with the lite-on black dvd/cd reader, and writer not much to say here it's just a dvd drive.

you will have to buy a sata cable

and you will need some Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

the grand total if you build it yourself : 910 bucks, but you do get a lot more.

( edit and if I missed anything please tell me, I had to do this in a hurry. )
