Best things to buy for my computer :D

Recommended Posts

The Traveler    120

So I have a good 30-40 pounds to spend at christmas to treat my computer to some new shiny hardware / improvements...

I have allready decided to spend a good 20 (outside the 30-40 budget) on a water cooling system, so over heating pretty much never becomes a factor again :P

But as far as actuall in game peformance (along with DayZ I play games such as 7 Days to die and KSP) what do you guys believe would be the best bit of kit i could buy and install?

Bellow is a picture of (what I believe to be) the most significant specs... so you have an idea of what I allready have :D

So if there are any suggestions out there I would highly appreciate it :D

Thanks for reading,

Many Regards

The Traveller

You can't buy much with that amount. Not anything good that I know of.

£40 will buy a stick of ram.

Maybe even a tiny SSD, best of luck getting anything for such a cheap budget.

But what would a stick of ram do for me performance wise?

Speeds up your memory.

You'd be suprised, certain games require more ram for rendering in things, for example, Skyrim with mods needs a lot of ram to run optimally.

Perhaps if you want to for some extra storage if you record or want more games at once you could buy another hard drive. There's not much you can get for £40 though. I wouldn't cheap out on your RAM you probably want to buy a pair of RAM sticks that work simultaneously together or you might run into some issues especially because you already have RAM.

Yeah, I'd go for a tiny SSD if you can, That is probably the best part you can get for your budget.

How many frames do you normally get man?

Good luck with upgrading it slightly, Have a great Christmas!

Everyone recommending RAM should remember that he's on a 32-bit based operating system and he already has 4GB of ram - which would be the maximum.

I would recommend that you save that money and buy something more significant when you've got more money to spend.

Oh, didn't see the 32-bit part, but I would either go for an SSD or save it up!

Good luck upgrading.

If I was to get more RAM, I was planning on starting a fresh on a 62 bit system ...

Well,I suggest you save up more money and buy some good ram and maybe a tiny SSD which will surely help you alot in ARMA and maybe other games.

back on topic, you don't need to have water cooling to get a very cool CPU for instance the other night I was interested to see what mine was running at 5K8vS.

Granted my heatsink and fan is about the size of my head but still its performing well.

5K8vS.

I really hope that your computer is outside and not in your room!

its not outside, its where I sit all day and night when on the pc, granted the insulation out in this bit isn't great, but the cooler the better right, just hope it doesn't freeze one night
