    Buying a desktop PC-- Free Stuff from me

    hi all... this is what happened to my laptop:

    I was playing poker and lost 14k$ this morning and started to slam my toshiba laptop. I was super mad and now i need a new computer. I'm thinking of spending around 1000$ (not including monitor/peripherals). I need a fast processor, im thinking of an i7, and dont really need it for gaming but that would be nice.

    i'm mostly gonna be using it for poker but i usually have a ton of applications running.

    I know the people on this forum are smart, so if u help me pick a machine+specs, i will send u a set of poker chips to the person with the most similar specs/features of the computer i pick out.

    i'm probably not gonna buy it online, but if u can link me to a great deal online i'd appreciate it so i can bargain at the store.


    and if u think i'm not reputable here u can just ask that guy i sent a t-shirt to.. i think his name was taco something

    Dell Studio XPS 8100 - [ view here ]

    Dual core, Intel Core i5... middle of the road, mid-priced.

    happy valentines day I see you are at home on the computer as welll. I rly mean that happy valentines day.
    Thx for the input I'm wreiting this from my blackberry atm...

    I don't know the difference between an i7 and an i5 and although I'm sure they're both sufficient to do web browsing and poker at the same time... Do u think they'd show any difference when they are running like 20 browsers and a bunch of downloads and music as well as poker??
    If u had to guess...
    Fwiw I do like the price

    Don't buy an Intel Core i3 - that's the low end. Core i7, high end. Core i5, middle of the road. I've seen very little difference in web, multimedia functions between the Core i5 and Core i7; only FPU/GPU/CPU intensive apps like heavy duty apps will you see a difference.

    For your needs, it's more than enough. Up the RAM to 6gb perhaps, call it a day.

    I have an i7 with 9 GB of RAM and it can handle web browsing, poker, and itunes and the same time. Sometimes, when I'm feeling crazy, I'll even open up Photoshop and Flash.

    ok guys, since i bought the comp but didnt post and gerbick waqs the only one itt i can send him a set of chips if he wishes. PM me your address and details if u want.

    I ended up buying this computer; http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...870&CatId=4928

    it works great and im more than satisfied with windows 7.... one thing that sucks is the mouse and keyboard that came with the system. I dont know how anyone can expect to use this mouse for gaming....

    also what games are good right now?

    Thanks, but no worries on the chips. Good luck with your purchase.

    Naw, I'm sure it would come.

    I'm just not into gambling. Nor gambling paraphernalia... all but money. That, I would take.

    He actually did send me a tshirt. I'll give him that. I was shocked. It's about 2 sizes too big, so I don't wear it, but nonetheless, it is in my possession.
