Is this a good investment considering I'd never have to buy another computer for the rest of my life?
>I'd never have to buy another computer for the rest of my life
Uh, no, you dipshit, that's not how it works. You're paying a huge premium for massively increased cost parts that will still become outdated.
Take that 16 fucking thousand dollars, split it into 8, and buy yourself a 2 thousand dollar computer every 2 years instead. You will get a fucking lot more use out of your money and you will have a computer for than 3 times as long.
I can take the most top-of-the-line parts, put them in a build that will last 10 years and it still wouldn't cost that much. What the fuck makes it cost sixteen fucking THOUSAND dollars?
>never have to buy another computer for the rest of my life
lol no, you fag
get this one
List the specs, I know prebuilts have an inherent premium but what the hell justifies $15000+ at a consumer level?
>get 64 gigs of ram
>store most games entirely in ram while playing them
>even megatextured monstrosities like Wolfenstein
Shit man, I went to that place and tried to build something similar to see what the fuck is going on here. I could only get to $11,500 and that's even with clicking everything optional I could see
Since everyone here is green texting. I want to build a PC now that this laptop is on its last legs. I don't have too much time on my hands so if there are any good value prebuilts I'd love to hear it, if not I've been thinking of just buying this.
Will this run shit just fine? Anything better price wise?
Currently games use 4GB
in 1 year it'll be 8GB
in 2 years it'll be 16GB
in 3 years it'll be 32GB
in 4 years it'll be 64GB
in 5 years it'll be 128 GB
Even using a more accurate doubling every 1.5 years, even if technology slows to a crawl and switches to doubling every 2 years, we'll be at 128GB ram requirement games in 10 years.
Moore's law has been out of whack for a while now. Mostly because companies like intel are much more worried about making computer parts more energy efficient than powerful.
I've been using 8gb of ram since roughly 2007.
Nobody cares what you use anon, it's what developers use.
In 2006 the ps3 with it's whopping 256mb of ram came out, and very few games made use of more ram than that because the consoles held them back, remember all that? Or are you a fucking newfag.
Unified memory is bullshit, only 4gb of that is usable for what ram is actually used for during games.
Yeah ok nerds, name some fucking games from 2010 which have 4gb as a minimum requirement.
any and all of them. i should have said 3-4 gigs max, because you would be lucky to list the ones that used more than ~3.5 with one hand. that original post is the dumbest one in this thread and that is saying something.
>Unified memory is bullshit, only 4gb of that is usable for what ram is actually used for during games.
So then games aren't even going to exceed that until the next generation.
My experience does matter idiot. If I had 8gb of ram in 2007 and moore's law was still relevant, I'd be over 128gb at the moment. It doesn't just apply to games, but computing in general.
By 2015 another console generation will have been released, and it will have atleast 64GB of ram in it.
Even if console games and most ports hold back the uitlization of the tech, the technology still upgrades, hence why the ps3 had 256mb, and the ps4 has 4GB (functionally)
>Yeah ok nerds, name some fucking games from 2010 which have 4gb as a minimum requirement.
What the fuck are you talking about bitch nigger? If they're only just making use of 4gb now and barely anymore than that, why the fuck would that be minimum requirement 5 fucking years ago?
Your experience doesn't mean shit, just because you went out and bought 8GB of ram in 8x 1gb sticks for $800 doesn't mean anything other than the fact you are a fucking retard.
>Is this a good investment
>considering I'd never have to buy another computer for the rest of my life?
I paid like 200 dollars for it.
It was not expensive or top of the line at the time. It was not out of the ordinary for a gaming oriented computer to have 8gb of ram at that time. I think you're the retard who is having a hard time remembering shit.
>have fx8350 and some 760 mobo that everyone claims is shit
>put stock cpu fan in
>its running at 5k rpm idle
>thinking of getting a new mobo this christmas
I really hope this will fix the problem. I dont have enough money to buy a new processor
