Thinking on a new PC set-up.....
#256711 - 06/07/11 10:58 AM


The only reason I have for getting something new is my currrent system won't handle HLSL. But I have the money, and my current system is four years old.

So, first, what do you folks think of the 'all-in-one' units?

Next, what about the following components? (comes in at about $250)

biostar A880G+

Athlon II X2 245 Regor

Kingston HyperX memory

Seagate 1TB Barracuda

Raidmax 500w PS

That Seagate HDD has terrible reviews. Almost 1/4 give it one egg. I think this is the same one that was on sale yesterday at Amazon. Reviews were just as bad there too.

Thanks. Anyone else have any comments?

You're building this system to run HLSL, what video card(s) are you considering? That's the critical ingredient.

The motherboard has on-board ATI Radeon HD 4250 graphics.

I am aware. I'm just flabbergasted that anyone would build a system specifically for HLSL without an actual video card. On-board anything, be it ATI or Nvidia, isn't going to shine in that application, to put things mildly.

I was looking at those for my (currently hypothetical) new MAME machine. If they're powerful enough, it seems like a good deal.

I was thinking that might be the case. I haven't really thought much further into it. u5 seems to have things optimized, and I get much better performance with my geforce 6800.
