    So these are the specs that were on my PC when I bought it in September.

    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit SP1 (Genuine)
    Manufacturer: iBUYPOWER Computers
    Processor: AMD FX 4300 Quad-Core Processor 3.80 Ghz
    Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6450
    RAM: 8.00 GB


    The only thing i'm not happy about on my computer is the graphics card. It isn't the best but it is still pretty nice on most games.

    If there is one thing, don't upgrade to windows 8 if you have a custom built PC, i have a windows 7 custom built PC and it works twice as much as a windows 8 one.

    ah i see, he didn't mention that in his post. So far computer wise its good but the graphics card could be improved. i personally don't have a preference so Windows 7 or 8 but hands on, i think 7 is the better option so i wouldn't recommend upgrading, at least not yet.

    Yeah the GPU could use an upgrade, as well as maybe a higher clocking CPU. Other than that everything seems up to par.

    I don't think the cpus a problem. For maybe a 4.0 Ghz cpu it would be about $200. I do agree on the graphics card though. I plan on actually saving up $1,000 so I can get this amazing pc.

    Have you ever even used one?

    Its called Paying for the quality. Your PC will likely start lagging, or breaking, or needing repair in a few months, whereas Apple systems under normal circumstances (EG: you aren't throwing them off a cliff.) do not need any maintenance done to work.

    When buying a Mac, you're also paying for the operating system called Mac OSX, which is, compared to windows, like a Bugatti Veyron to a tricycle with a broken wheel.

    You would not be turning down Macs like that if you ever used one, and, trust me, anyone on these forums who has used/owned a Mac in their lifetime will tell me right on this one. So, don't make judgements based on looking at only one side, look at both sides, then make a judgement.

    Its also not a smart thing to say bad things to Steve Jobs, I heard his spirit is lurking around these forums, and he has access to the ban hammers. (You heard me.)

    Ah, and, to remind you, https://twitter.com/ is not https://www.cubecraftgames.net/ .

    But, as Halo said, generally speeking Macs tend to stay better over a longer time.
    Still, Im a windows user :p

    My computer has never needed repair. I've had it since September and I haven't had a single problem. The only problems I ever had was when I was stupid and downloaded viruses. I really don't need a new computer if i'm running Battlefield 3 at medium settings with 30 - 50 fps. I might not have used one but I have a friend that uses one and he payed $1200 for it and guess what he got.... LAG! He can only play Minecraft at 10 - 25 frames with Optifine and lowest settings. Macs are also incapable of running windows. Sure, macs don't get viruses but I don't see why a person would need a mac unless they are watching hardcore **** while ******* *** on the most virus infested websites.
