Thread: New computer?

  1. #1

    New computer?

    Ok a friend of a friend is going to sell me a computer cheap. He says it's built for gaming. He says it has a 2 terabyte Harddrive. 8 gb of ram. i7 core Processor and a Guerrilla motherboard.
    I'm the minister of mistakes. I'm the shaman of sh*tstorms. If there was a f**k-up pope. I'd have a 3 foot hat!

    When arguing online I like to use big words. Because by the time they're done googling it, they have forgotten what their point was.

    You forgot to mention the graphics card which is the most important part.
    Also the Guerrilla motherboard is a socket 1366 which is fairly old, how much is he asking for this?

    Like $70.

    I asked about the video card and thats when he told me about the guerrilla motherboard. He said it's a gaming motherboard.

    every component in your pc interacts with the motherboard, you dont buy a junk one, you still have to get one that isnt junk

    The gaming part is just a PR stunt, it will not give any increased performance in games.

    Either way it will probably out perform my current computer that I bought from RAC 3 years ago.

    The CPU alone is worth more than $70 so whatever is in there, roll it.
