The Best Computer for a Gamer

Computer games take up a lot of memory. Those who love to play games all the time would know this. In order to keep their computers from running out of memory space, they need to go out and buy chips that give them more space to store memory for their games. They could keep going out and buying memory chip after memory chip or they could buy a computer that would give them enough memory to hold all their games and than some. This is where the Dell Inspiron 1720 comes in. One source describes the Dell Inspiron 1720 as "An integrated cellular modem, cavernous hard drives, and very good performance numbers more than compensate for a couple of feature exclusions, making the Inspiron 1720 one of the best deals in the desktop-replacement market." (PC Magazine). Gamers are not just looking for memory though; they are also looking for quality. "The 1720 can be configured with up to an Nvidia 8600m GT graphics card for gaming." (Notebook review) Most games in the twenty first century are very technical and have high quality visuals. Someone who is mainly into games wants a clear and crisp picture to play on so that they can get the full effect of the game and the Dell Inspiron 1720 shows qualities that would make the gaming experience better. "Configured with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo T7300 processor, 2GB of RAM, and an nVidia GeForce 8600M GT graphics card, the Dell Inspiron 1720 proved an agile workhorse and gaming machine." (PC Advisor). Another sources says "The 1720 has two options of Intel GM965 chipset that features integrated X3100 graphics, and Intel PM965 chipset that come with dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS 128MB for more gaming budget models or NVIDIA GeForce 8600M WP 256MB card for professional models." PC Adviser tested the Dell Inspiron 1720 in a game test and stated that "The Dell Inspiron 1720 kicked booty in our gaming tests, producing 116 frames per second playing Far Cry at 1,024x768 resolution." (PC Advisor)

    Although the processor in my computer was top of the line about 6 months ago, there are already processors on the market that are simply astounding in comparison. The core I7-3960X Extreme edition is the most state of the art Intel processor on the market today, and with a price point of over $1,000 USD, is also the most expensive (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116491). The RAM in my computer is certainly comparable to many top of the line products widely available on the market, but I could certainly use an upgrade…

    When the time comes to purchase a new computer or notebook arrives, many people cringe at the thought of standing in front of the display at Best Buy, blankly staring at the dozens of choices before them. The descriptions mean nothing to them. They’re all just pointless numbers and abbreviations right? Finally, the twenty –something computer guru arrives to offer some assistance, but they’re just rambling on and on about the top of the line models, the computer of the gods, the ones with the largest price tags. You revert to walking out of the store defeated, head hung low, outdone by the wonderful world of technology. Purchasing a new device can be very easily made into quite a simple task just by devoting some time to research and reviews.…

    A new state-of-the-art system can also allow a user the same portability as a personal computer, but with a higher price tag. A new state-of-the-art computer system has Intel Core Duo P8400 Processor that operates at a speed of 2260 MHZ or more. State-of-the-art computers have massive amounts of storage for videos, photos, and music. Many of the new systems come in a variety of unique colors and textures to appeal to today’s consumers. Most of the larger systems are fast performers but lack in power and battery life. "The 8.2 pound VGN-AW230J/H may not be a powerful performer, but it eats like one, draining its battery in just 1 hour, 49 minutes in our tests” (Marrin, 2009, para. 3).…

    In order to calculate the total price to purchase all the components required to build a state-of-the-art gaming computer, state-of-the-art must be defined. For the purposes of this program design, state-of-the-art is defined as a set of computer components that are capable of operating current games to a satisfactory level. A sample of minimum and recommended hardware requirements for modern games was taken and a baseline established for components that satisfy those requirements. Additional hardware was selected that exceeds the requirements to establish options representing mid-range and bleeding-edge components. These three sets of components were researched online to determine prices representative of what they would each cost individually. The total price of a state-of-the-art gaming computer is the sum of the price of each component bought individually. For the purposes of this program design, no account is made for discounts or package deals.…
