Brand of Personal Computer

I´d like to change my PC.
Now I´m using Panasonic.
Because it´s light & has good specifications.
Which brand or mark of PC or laptop are you using?

As I understand it, you have chosen a ready-made computer.Your 16 GB SSD is small. You yourself will not debug it due to the fact that you did not write anything about the motherboard. Add a120- 200 GB SSD disk to it and put Windows on this disk. And then it will be faster.

motherboard ASUS H87M-PRO
Seasonic SSR-450RM fully modular PSU

This is more than I'd ever need for poker! (for now, lol)

I run Two DELL 24inch Ultrasharp monitors.

I am planning some upgrades:
1660 GPU
32in BenQ monitor
8GB Ram (to increase to 16GB)

I have a Commodore 64


It's a bit slow, and the 16 colors are starting to get too low for HD resolution, but I think it's still up to date.

Here is the specification



Microprocessor CPU:

MOS 6510 or MOS 8500 (the 6510/8500 is actually a modified 6502 with an integrated 6-bit I / O port, and the 8500 is a version of the 6510 with CMOS technology)
Clock: 0.985 MHz (PAL) / 1.023 MHz (NTSC)

Video hardware: MOS VIC-II, MOS 6567/8567 (NTSC), MOS 6569/8569 (PAL)

Text mode: 40 × 25, 16 colors
Graphic modes: 160 × 200 (can contain up to 4 levels per character), 320 × 200 (monochrome)
8 hardware sprites (movable graphics, for game programs)

Audio hardware: MOS Technology 6581/8580 "SID" chip

3 audio channels, ADSR programmable;
4 waveforms: triangle, sawtooth, variable square signal and noise
programmable bottom / top pass and bandpass filter
Oscillator synchronization, ring modulation

RAM:

64 KiB (65,536 bytes) (38 KiB for BASIC programs)
0.5 KiB color RAM (1K nibble)

ROM:

20 KiB (8 KiB BASIC 2.0, 8 KiB KERNAL, 4 KiB character generator with two 2 KiB case sensitive)


... JUST KIDDING !!! :icon_joke


Good luck all !

It is sad to realize that the time has come when you need to upgrade your computer to play poker. Brutal poker room updates.

So little memory and processing power is needed to play poker software- I built my PC in 2013 it's still pretty fast. Upgrading will give me zero advantage.

If you want to know what i have: Asus p8z68-V, i52500k, samsung 500gb SSD, and 16gb Samsung memory DDR3.

I modified a Dell 7040 Mid Tower. It has an I7-6700 CPU, NVMe 500GB ssd, 32gb ram. I cut out the optical drive bay so I could fit in a Noctua NH-L12S cooler. I also cut out the back and drilled new mounting holes in the right location for mounting and fan exhaust from Silverstone 500 watt SFX Power supply, Dell has proprietary non-standard 8 pin connector with different standby wattage instead of standard 24 pin so had to also get adapter for that. The standard power supply on this model is only 180 watts, max power supply from dell for this model is 240 watts and I wanted put in the GTX 1070 8GB graphics card I already had so that is why I had to put in the adapter and 500 watt power supply. I like putting together stuff cheap that does the job better than stuff that is 2 or 3 times as expensive and this thing does that and handles everything I want to do with a PC for now.

Hi. I prefer to assemble spare details myself than purchase a ready-made one.

First you need to decide for what purposes you need a computer.
I think the most powerful computer is needed if you stream online computer games, if you just play games, then an average computer will do.

I have an i5 6600 processor, 16GB of RAM, 120GB ssd disk, 500GB hard disk, no video card, I have enough for playing poker, and I think it will last for a long time.

It is crucial to buy it in a store with a good reputation. You should keep in mind that not all the necessary components are immediately available. It is better to wait for a while, that to get something of poor quality. That’s why I bought a hard drive in hard drive recovery near me. Btw, you should remember that the main thing is GPU when choosing a graphics card. The set amount of graphics memory is often greatly exaggerated.
