my specs.. good or bad?
« on: February 19, 2007, 06:59:25 pm »
i just bought me a new PC..


3,6 AMD dual core something ;D
2048 DDR2 RAM :o
radeon x.. something 512RAM ???

 and i think i should be able to play F.E.A.R. and supreme commander really nice ;)

 and i have a question.. when a graphic card is "built in" the motherboard, is there anyway to insert a new one? it dosn't look like it.. i think "built in" graphic cards suck.. don't they? :-\

Integrated ones usually suck when it comes to gaming, yes. If you see an empty PCI Expressx16 slot on your motherboard, you get a new graphics card.

Other than that, you have a kick ass pc :)

Good shit, man.

I only have...

512 RAM (Actually it's only 448, look at my Graphics card)
2 GHz 3500+ AMD Sempron Processor. I've been told that the GHz in Semprons don't matter as much as the number before the name does, so this is actually good, I suppose.
256 MB ATI Radeon X200 Graphics card. (Yes, it's integrated.) >:(

Only anime shows I've felt any interest in over the years are Pokemon (original TV series) and various hentai.
so clearly jgrp is a goddamn anime connoisseur. his opinion might as well be law here.

No that computer sucks, throw that one away and spend 10000 dollars for a good one.

Ah might aswell post my specs. AMD 3400+ Sempron, 512mb RAM, XPRESS 200 64 mb intergrated (not bad...for an intergrated card) and 180 gb HDD

Good ****, man.

Ya, it's a Compaq Presario 1720 NX. Gram has more ram (Hehe) and a much better Card, though...

Yes you can put new video cards into computers with integrated ones and yes integrated ones usually suck.

Since yours has a Radeon with 512MB of memory, yours isn't integrated (I'm not sure if you were asking that or not)

I hear the more newer games won't work with onboard cards anymore... not run poorly or the cards aren't to standard... won't friggin run!

I never post my specs on here. Have no idea why not.

Oh wait, I think it's because my pc is about ten years old.

Well at least I don't still have cable. Oh, and I have XP; that's about it.

I don't know shit about computers. All I know is that it's kinda like a small tv on my table, and this funny metal box that makes noices when you push the button makes it run. In fact I hate computers.

Oh yes, integrated cards blow, no matter what kind.

If you want a new video card, grab a Radeon X1900, they're really starting to go down in price (that's which one i got, for only $200).  An NVidia 7600 or 7800 will also do you good too.

You have a kickass PC other than that ^_^

I have...

2.8 Ghz Intel Pentium D (I think, its a dual core of some kind)
ATI Sapphire Radeon X1900GT 256MB Pci-Ex16
1024 MB RAM (lol, i had GB in there)

I can run Battlefield 2 at 60 - 100 FPS with no issues
So if you get a new card, it'll pwn even harder than mine ;D

I plugged my Atari into the good ol' 1970's television set.
Does this count as a "computer"?

Specs:
CPU: 1.19MHz
RAM: 128 Bytes
Colors: 16 (4 max on screen)
Resolution: Tape Cartridges
Sound: Soundblaster Mono

It runs on Windows Vista :)

If you bought a system and you didn't install a graphics card yourself its an onboard card, so you need to get a new one.

Haha, incredibly wrong. Even HP sells built-systems with external graphics cards.

Basically, if your video card uses RAM as opposed to dedicated graphics memory, it's integrated. It's definitely external if there's a card with a huge fan sticking out of the other big card with the fan sticking out.
