My little brother is about to buy me a computer...

29 posts in this topic

The computer

So is it good? Does it have flexible room for changing parts, if needed? I can't believe he's doing this shit, especially at the same time or month I want to move out.

I don't know if they have any idea that I want to move out, but I got plans.

I mean it pisses me off my family uses my deceased biological father's check I get from social security, and yet I have to hear them giving me choices I can make on my own.

Honestly at first, I was pissed at hearing my mom and little brother talking to me about a computer, when they know I have an idea about moving out, cuz I can jjst buy my own with a part-time job and that monthly check, even in an apartment. I mean they know I want to move out just like my brother, and the idea of him getting me a computer sounds like they want me to stay. If my dad really needs that much money a month, he should find another way... my lazy-fucking mom who says "you get weaker when you're older."

So... I am not trying to sound black-hearted, but I think I will take his deal, but still move out AND take my uncle's computer... and he's deceased, too. My mom has no purpose in owning it, either, but I do. It would make me really happy to start off being in an apartment, away from those assholes, AND having two computers for essential computation properties.

what do you need the computer to do? AMD APUs arent exactly top notch in the the processing part of computing, but superb in the graphics department (considering they're not standalone graphics cards).

Well, nice to see you are actually get a new computer at last, however that AMD A4-3400 APU and Radeon HD 6410D have really poor performance but it still should be able to play SCII and ZPS adequately enough.

I recommend that you get your brother to buy the computer I posted the link down below instead as it is cheaper at $499.99. It comes with a much better Processor okay GPU, more hard drive space, a 700W PSU for future upgrades when adding new components and it comes with Windows 8.

The video card and CPU is old/weak. The Video card itself is probably 30 bucks.

You gotta watch out for that when buying pre-assembled . Also the operating system is probably OEM. Which means the license is tied to the motherboard. If you ever upgrade your motherboard you will have to buy another copy of windows. OEM windows sells for 100$ one time use, A full retail windows 7 sells for 250 dollars and can be re-installed an unlimited number of times on new motherabord you buy.

I actually upgraded my motherboard recently for a new AM3+ cpu and I had to call microshit's automated license system and put in a long 32 digit string to verify my license. They are serious about their licenses.

You'd be better off building your own computer from parts. So research and learn what CPUs/GPUs are hot or not. Then research from the small subtleties like the difference between ATX and micro-atx or PCI and PCI express, and learn about the CPU sockets like AM2, AM3, LGA2011, LGA755. After doing that for some time you should become confident enough to make a serious purchase of different parts.

Payne, my little brother wants to buy me a computer. I can't waste any more complicated time. Buying parts would probably make him want to suggest or require me to buy the one he has up there. So I should probably go for the New Egg one, unless there is precisely better than the one I showed and the New Egg one.

Thank you guys so much, by the way!

I would really like to play No More Room in Hell. So am I correct that this computer: The New Egg computer

is one I can easily add new parts in AND is better in graphics and essentially: processing?

Payne, you are right though, as all of you always have been in the past: I need to learn a lot about computers just as I learned A TON about triggers in Starcraft: Brood War. I mean heck; I may want a good fan for safety!

Edit: I do see I am getting lazy *cough old* b/c I used to do a lot of research, but my main reason why I do that is because I am stressed out living at home.

EDIT2: WAIT, MAXX, so what should I do? Neither? I can't build one now... not now...

We got a problem, guys. The one on newegg has just been removed and JUST LAST NIGHT, I told and verified my dad that the one you guys showed me was the one I wanted. So ... now my little brother (today lol AFTER that happened last night), has this one from Newegg.com; for $489

It doesn't have as much wattage (500w vs. 700w from the $500 one you showed me).

It's just less, you know? What if I put $100 of my own money for this one? for $600 Model 2138

But compare THOSE with the OTHER $600... like :blink::o One for $600 or $700 actually has HORRIBLE specs, but if you compare that to the one I like for $600, is much better than the newer model: Model 2140

The difference is RIDICULOUS at the same price.

I already put up with an old computer with 512 mb graphics card. I'm wondering if it's worth the money putting $100 X-tra for more wattage, graphics, and such.

To conclude, that's pretty crazy: Right when I tell my dad that last night, the next day today, the one for $500 is gone and there's one cheaper for $489, (for me, as in 4 my date of birth). Also, me and my little brother just had a seat-creaking war after he noticed I sat down to look at the one for $489. Some parts of me wants to just follow the white rabbit, while the other part just tells me they are so fucking annoying and greasy. I may get to use w/e computer I may be forced to use this Christmas, but I hope I do get to move by the beginning of December... I hope that's still planned, but I think they are depending on me to forget about it just so they can keep using MY check for $1,100 I get from my deceased biological father... for him being a chemist. I WANT that money. EVEN MY AUNT And a friend suggested that's what I should do. I WANT TO GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM THEM. MOST HONESTLY, I think they want me to become full blown schizophrenic with their ultra "silent harassment" they seemingly have ben giving me... MAYBE just so they can have the rights to throw me into a mental institution and KEEP MY money.

Yeah and considering I just told my dad about how I feel. I really think they are observing me for schizophrenia. I remember witnessing how they wanted me to at least accept I am schizophrenic, but at the same time ask me if I was from time to time.

I EVEN HAD A CLOSE FRIEND TELL ME I WAS... ... AS IF HE TALKED TO MY FAMILY. I'm not schizophrenic. I THINK A LOT! I really think those motherfuckers are mentally abusive. I think that's what they are. What htey need to do is be honest.

Well, my dad doesn't want me to have my entire check... he just wants to pay for my rent. OH so nice... wtf... I really wish him well, but I just wish I could do more with life sucking this bad.

Life wouldn't suck for me if I just had a great computer, money to save for more computers, money for making my own food, JUST A LIFE FOR ME TO THINK. I can't have that because dad wants me to live with his closest associate...

what if you are a paranoid schizophrenic though? that shit can make it awfully hard to function properly, i'm not saying it isn't possible to mind you. but what if you were man? wouldn't you want help getting sorted out? i can definitely understand your trepidation though about going to some clinic for mental health man...like some sorta old relative no one cares about anymore in a home, rarely being visited and can't leave. but maybe they can help you get sorted out a bit dude...it's your life, i just want you to be happy in it.

I'm telling you my life is so much more peaceful without them. I feel so pressured just because of that. I don't hear voices. I just think a lot. They don't give me the room to organize myself. They don'tcare or apprehend my ability to fix myself.

You don't get it. Even if I was in a clinic, I WOULDNT WANT them visiting me. My problem is that MY MONEY can't be given to me for me to live alone. My dad is the kind of person who would wonder "WTF WOULD U DO WITH THAT MONEY?" That's what he probably thinks even thoug he is acting nice. I've known him all my life. I KNOW WHO I AM. You don't get it... and ur already just like everybody else: You immediately feel "game over, Joe, I'm so glad to hear that about you because it's about time people get on your motherfucking ass." You don't know it, but that's how a lot of people are. It makes me feel like a black person; Jesus on the cross... but he's supposed to be dead and gone by 2k years.

Reverend, I live at home with my family; a house. I work a little, but damn... my dad wants my money for retirement money in Arizona, which is obvious. I've always been mistreated and if Ido ever go into a clinic, it's not like they REALLY ACTED LIKE THEY CARED about me helping myself. They just give me awkward silence. They have no faith in me. They "love" me, but don't do vegeance... or they dont' want to face their fears. It's irresponsible, Joe. God damn how I have no one on my side and I look forward to death the further we all go into this shit.

I tell you what my cure is: Them stop trying to control my future and how I think. I buy my own groceries, food I want to eat, and they buy extra cinnamon pita chips, which taste pretty good. I agree with my family that some people give too much money to church, but they have gone nuts on me. I only have a bad behavior because of who I've always been in their eyes. I know you guys are mainly white people, but take yourself into the eyes of a black man who has seen white racists... and you are poor. You should know how you feel. I am basically a fit, youthful, and intelligent commander being framed as schizophrenic and psychotic... and paranoid.

My new motto of life is: Be honest before you throw me into hell. ALl you had to do was be honest. All they ever had to do.

That one from $600 looks pretty decent actually, i got the 6670 with intel pentium dual core 1.80gHz with 3 GB of RAM and I don't neccasarily have a problem running most games. My cpu is really old and bad at the moment so i have some issues running games but that shouldn't be the case for you. Before i bought this 6670 i used to have a Radeon X1950 512 MB i think it was and i could run Crysis on recommended medium on 1280x960 so that was pretty good for an old set up like that, for some reason at one point I couldn't run any games anymore other than on low. Now i got this new videocard and my computer doesn't crash anymore or shut down but apparantly my cpu also seems to be a weak link because i used to be able to run games like pirates vikings and knights II maxed out withouth stutters or any other source game, now i get a frame rate of 30-70 on low. Oh well. I think i'll be needing a new PC soon also. Bottom line, everyone here has gigantic crazy computers, with that set up you should have no problem at all running zps or nmrih.

also, they take your money?

You should really see if you can do something about it if you really want to move out.

it's not very fair to lump me in with "everyone else" just for suggesting that there is a possibility that all of your cogs aren't fully greased. i'm just concerned for you and want you to be happy. as i said, they very well could be doing fucked up shit to you and treating you poorly, you live in the situation, i don't, so i can't really say it's one way or the other. the only glimpses into your reality are siphoned through you. stories that siphon through other people generally appear before me in a recognizable form that is easy for me to read and piece together, but when anything goes through your siphon it comes out in a form that is completely unrecognizable to me in a lot of ways, to the point that piecing it together isn't even an option, i don't think these things piece together at all and if they did i just don't know how to put them together...do i lick the edges first? is there a phrase i'm missing that makes piece a join piece b? so i don't think it's a huge leap to see why some people might think you have some next level shit going on in your head man...i'm not saying you're crazy but i am saying you are functioning on a different level from most humans.

and as i said before, i don't want you going into a situation you're uncomfortable with and i can 100% understand not wanting to go to a clinic...just the possibility of being held somewhere against my will sounds massively unappealing. the only reason why i was saying it's possible that you could be paranoid is every time you talk, you say person X is against you, out to get you, conspiring in silence against you...shit maybe everyone is out to get you, or maybe they just don't know how to respond to you and are just concerned as well. i'm not there so i can't say. i'm not on anyone's side in this because i don't have a chip in this game to play it, i'm merely commenting on it as an outsider. i can completely see your side of it because you do act a bit irrational and are prone to long winded rants that only you can understand because it seems like you're just overwhelmed with a multitude of thoughts and connections and you're just trying to get it all down before the thoughts disappear and the chain of thoughts is completely broken...i get that and i also understand that because of that, yes, it would be easy for your legal guardians to be like "well you see how he acts, he's crazy, are you gonna believe him or us, we're normal"...so in that respect i can understand certain levels of paranoia in relation to the outside world. being schizophrenic isn't just about hearing voices in your head though...being paranoid, feeling isolated and having sentences that are only loosely connected are signs of schizophrenia man. it doesn't make you nuts. and if you get mad at me just mentioning this shit, then that also says something about what's going on. the fact that you don't hear or see things that aren't there is a great thing. but the disorganized speech and shit is something that can be dealt with, with help. it's your life dude and you're free to whatever the hell you want with it, i'm just being real and upfront about the situation that you have presented to me.

just be happy and be safe joe.

Okay, but I wish you would understand that I DO indeed have the ability to FIX my problems of being coherent. All that I ask of you is to please UNDERSTAND THAT I CAN. It's just that all these years living with people who believe that you can't only made me bitter towards them and sadly: Growing bitter to other people. I really just want the chance to live utterly on my own; alone; even if an apartment is cheaper with two; I want to be alone! They keep expecting me to pop out with more symptoms of schizophrenia, but I AM BATTLING IT! Okay? I admit I can feel HOW it's attacking me, BUT THEY DON't BELIEVE IN MY ABILITY! It's saddening! I know how to do this and they don't encourage me. I feel at risk of being on their chain if they get too much heat on me.

Like I said, my uncle MArk was the one who put his sister, my biological mother, into a mental institution. My dad always compared my little brother to my uncle Mark, and how my little brother acts, I feel as though he's supposed to be the runner up to EVENTUALLY lock me up in a clinic. Joe, I am only trying to tell you I AM MUCH HAPPIER ALONE. I KNOW THIS. Every time I watch my sister's dogs while she's gone, I feel SO RELIEVED.

Finally, me connecting their behavior as signs of trying to PROVOKE worse symptoms of schizophrenia is not a bad conception. We both are not psycho-analysis of criminal/insane behavior, but I do tell you: This I talk about is part of it. They just want to wait now. This feels extremely serious and it is because if that happens, they will be able to control HOW I talk and act. If that happens, I won't ever be able to have as much fun as I want. I "act" crazy for fun. I am not really crazy. My family consist of people who don't know other families with kids who know how to have fun. I am like those creative kids who know how to have fun. My family are not a dancing group and dancing was once considered witchcraft. So if you see where I am going with this, I wish you could just agree it would be nice if I could afford living alone with that WHOLE check from my dead biological father's.

Edit: Now that I read that last part, thanks.. I will try. Being happy is important. That's the part where I act crazy... but "WHAT" is it that I do to be crazy? Just acting silly... or doing exercises in my backyard. That's crazy? Just different and WILLING. OF ALL OF THIS IN MY LIFE: I hate how JUST BECAUSE I AM A VERY WILL-POWERED PERSON, PEOPLE MUST TRY TO CONVINCE ME TO TONE IT DOWN.

=================================================================================

The man of war, yes it does, doesn't it? It looks really nice, actually, but I thinkk maybe my dad had already bought the $500 one which is why it must be gone. I could be wrong. It would be beautiful to be able to look at No More Room in Hell's graphics AND play my TOUGHEST at Starcraft II. Honestly, I can see HOW Zombie Panic has become a bit rubbish, but that still has to do with how I feel living at home and the computer specs I play with. Zombie Panic is the kind of game I want to drop in and try to either save the day, or practice harshly extensive skills, particularly in being accurate at shooting heads to kill zombies quickly. I would be so happy to be able to do ALL OF THAT ALOOONE... :o

What's still so funny is that I wonder if I could get more cheaper if I just built my own computer and just how true is that? It would be cool to be ableto buy a $300 video card, but that's already on my way to $400-500 in purchasing the mother board, power supply, and such.

I think you're a good guy, Joe. From what I was able to understand, you're frustrated that people are putting you under the microscope and waiting for you to give them any reason to fuck you over. You're upset that people are trying to control your life. And it's fueling your paranoia.

Honestly, I don't think that's "crazy" at all. Tons of people have problems like that at home. I think you just have a lot of thoughts going 100mph in your head and people are unfairly judging you. Hope whatever problems you're having work out in your favor, man. Just keep a cool head and be honest with yourself and everyone else and things should work themselves out.

Well, I didn't get the computer for Xmas. It was one of their games with me: "You're getting a new computer!" (In the sense of a parent who forces you something, but uncannily is something YOU WANT!... but is too good to be true).

So instead, I get around $500 for Xmas, a "don't spend it all at once," and my work sucks so I quit my job and use the money for groceries and health for relaxation.

Well, guys, I'm doing my best. Recently, there was a guy driving a solar-energy truck being chased by the police. I think he was being chased to tell people "look, gice, they don't want us saving money."

If there's anyone on this imperfect Earth who's gonna live independent some day, that's me; no questions asked. EVen if it's for 1 day, I'm gunna do it. Fuck the government and I'm not talking about the government that just deals with money and knows FUCKING NOTHING. I'm talking baout the one who looks for hotshot people who want to live easy and make their lives hard. I want to live cheap and that's it. Shoot me in the face, but that's what I'll live for.

As much as I appreciate you and your response, Maddog, not even kindness really helps motivate or is something real enough to help me actually get a great computer in the near future. I got screwed over and worst yet: Above ALL video gaming experience, I would like to know how to map... and having a sucky computer DESTROYED by software/hardware hitmen who purposely screw your shit up just to force you to buy NOT "better" hardware, but NEW hardware!

What are some people trying to save for screwing up people's computers with viruses and redundant programs using up CPU storage? A *in a hicky hillbilly voice* $50,000 luxury car? Okay, man, go to Vegas with that and I'm sure you'll make all the friends you need and heaven will be around the corner within a year... while you still pay insurance.

Sadly, it seems only someone as mad as me, YET STILL IN CONTROL can really give me a response I want. Like: If someone told me EXACTLY what's going on with America and whether or not people make viruses just so people spend more $$, I don't know what I would do with secret information, BUT I WOULD LOVE IT! I really wish there was another way to protect your computer from viruses. I don't want beef with shitheads who make viruses. I just want to stay the fuck awayfrom the goddamn melting pot of America. I want to be clean and fresh like how Cypher wanted in The Matrix, but still without the matrix.

I tell ya: If this computer that I'm on was secretly a SUPER COMPUTER until I have to move alone and hopefully, I'd be SUPER HAPPY... even while living here with such conclaves going on to enslave my conscious..
