    FYI.....

    From what this report is telling me your going to need more than just a video card or motherboard.

    If your running a cyrix 233 mhz which this report states. I can understand why your having trouble playing games. Most games today require at the very least a 700 mhz processor.

    Your definately looking at a major upgrade if you wanna play today's games. A new case, cpu/motherboard, and memory. You can cheat by getting away with onboard video and sound, but onboard video will work with newer games but doesnt preform as well as a video card.

    If your willing to build a new system. Everyone here would give you the best advice on hardware and also give you the best bang for buck.

    We will of course need to know what your willing to spend. So we got a dollar amount to go on.

    keep us informed......

    If youre talking the card games that came with your Windows system, then you shouldn't have problems.

    But I'm suspecting you're talkint 3D games? Particularly those made in the past 4 years?

    Your machine is way past functional for todays gaming. A fact, nothing more.

    You have 2 solutions.

    1 - Buy a whole new computer.
    2 - Do not buy a new computer, spend $160 for a PlayStation2.

    If you want a good computer with some gaming power out of the box, without having to ADD a 3D video card right away:

    HP A230 is $830 (They had a $670 version which was almost as good - no DVD-burner - the A220, but its been discontuned)
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=1055388016246&skuId=5645992&type=product

    note: typical $500 or so systems do not have a usable graphic system... even this HP has a graphic system that is 2 years old... but usable. Adding a $80 Geforce Ti4200 would make it a lot faster.

    At CostCo - they had an Emachine for about $650, included a 17: monitor. - Add the above card to it... (I don't know if that Emachine can HANDLE such a high end card).

    What games do you want to play? Unreal Tornement 2003? Half Life 2? These games require even more horse power.

    Let us know what you want to play and your budget - and we can help focus what you can use or get away with.

    There is nothing you can do with your current system.


    PS: found out the 220 *IS* available from HP direct, and MAYBE available from CompUSA or Microcenter - $680.

    Thanks for the great posts, I think a new system is in order. I would spend around $1,500.00 for a new system, any preferences IE: Dell, Compaq etc. I know staples and future shop carry many different pc brands such as Toshiba; AMD, & Cicero.

    Also once I buy my new system, can I connect a cable from my old pc to the new one in order to transfer some programs etc.My current system doesn't have a writable cd, I have some personal files that are small enought to go to a floppy but progam's like diskkeeper etc I would defintely keep. Thanks again.

    ????

    Question... Why do you need to spend $1500 on a new computer? You're going from basiclly a 200mhz system from 1997 to a 2000Mhz system...

    Unless you're including a budget for a LCD screen ;)

    Note: LCDs are great in all areas, but games. Samsung 19" displays are about $600. A 19" CRT from Sams in $185.00 (Flat screen tube). Games generally move faster than LCDs can update the screen.

    With your budget, I'd say pop for the HP 230 (included DVD burner) then for gaming: $175 or so for the ATI 9600Pro or $350 for the ATI9800Pro.

    $830 - HP A230
    $350 - ATI9800pro
    $200- 19" CRT (from Sams)
    -------------
    $1380


    About xfering your files from OLD to NEW... There are some programs with cables out on the market for this...

    Or, you can PULL your HD out of your OLD system and stick it into the NEW system - just long enough to xfer the files over.

    1 - open the cases, touch power supply to reduce static discharge (power off of course) and unplugged.
    2 - Unplug the DATA cable for the optical drives from the motherboard.
    3 - plug in OLD drive where the CD-ROM drives used to be using the original data vable. Use power from one of the CD-ROM to power HD.
    4 - power up - go into Windows, create a folder called OLD STUFF (or whatever) and copy ALL the data you want to that folder).
    5 - when done, power down, unplug your OLD HD, reattach the cables for the Optical drives. attach cover and power up.

    6 - COPY your OLD data to where you want or need to the new computer (in case you have a problem, keep your originals in the OLD STUFF folder). You can xfer your favorites easily and of course my Documents. Outlook is very tricky to move over... refer to the SOFTWARE section of this site for that kind of help.

    Anything else - nobody can answer that for you...

    - again, there is supposed to be software-KIT on the market for $50 that's supposed to do this for you... but *I* never used them.

    Don't throw away your old PC too soon, for a month or so incase you need it again... or keep for a backup.

    With NEW computer (no matter which name brand) - remove junkware (software trying to SELL you stuff, sevices etc).

    Buy the book "Windows XP for dummies"... I'm still learning, but I'm going more under the hood - to disable junk.

    Yeah, you SHOULDA HAVE!!! (blame Canada!!) heheh...
    Well, lets make the adustment which is about $1,200 USD.

    What kind of games do you want to play? Which case, most of todays games will run pretty good on the $175(USD) for the ATI which brings the price down for ya.

    I only have one suggestion for you. If you decide to use Windoze XP get Pro. Leave Home alone. It's worth the extra cost. :D

    Find a local, REPUTABLE computer shop to get a custom built pc for YOUR needs. Forget the HP/Compaq, Dell, etc. crap. Here's a link for you to check out Canadian dealers/vendors, etc.:

    http://www.computers-canada.com/top100/index.html

    Gather some info on your end, post back your questions, ideas, etc. and we'll guide you to your ultimate machine.

    While I wouldn't own a Name brand PC - I do recommend them to people who want the support. I do have clients WHO only want name brand... go figure.

    Anyways... its also TOUGH to find a reputable seller - hence, hard core folks like myself SELF BUILT... we know what every part is worth.

    I checked out IBUYPOWER - Im no impressed. They bate & Switch... they have an intro machine for $400 - which I could do myself as well... it has the $20.00 case (but they show a picture with the $120 case)... Same with the speakers... Showing you $300+ speakers, when it comes with $20 speakers. Once you add all the goodies to equal the HP computer - its up to $1000.00, not including the OS.

    For the game you're talking about - the HPA220/A230 (only if you need DVD-RW - A230) will play C&C fine... a bit better with the ATI card.

    WindowsXP Pro is noticably better for someone who USES their computer and need more function and networking. But if all you do is play at home, it'll work fine. Networking - then it wont.

    There are two Gateways in this house & both are great computers. One is a 4 year old PII450 & the other is a year & a half old P41.5GHz. They work fine BTW, always have. I had a small problem with the PII machine, but Gateway fixed it right away. They have wonderful service & support.

    While I agree that nothin' can compare to booting up that new box "you" just put together :D, but if you've not had alot of experience with computers in general, then you should get one that has support.

    Plus big vendors these days are building much better machines than what they have in the past.

    I would personally rather build my own, but I've always felt it was a bit irresponsable to tell new people "not to buy" from the big vendors.

    That's easy to say when YOU don't have to work on systems from "the big vendors". It's nice to hear 1 out of thousands of customers believe Gateway has "wonderful service and support".
