Windows 7: Game lagging and slow performance of pc.Suggestion about a gaming rig?

He's going to be gaming, 4GB is fine for gaming. I don't see any games using more than 4GB of RAM. 64 bit is important even though he is going to use 4GB of RAM, because 32 bit doesn't just limit RAM, it also limits VRAM (for the GPU). So 4GB of RAM, plus, 1GB of VRAM for the GPU, which totals to 5GB... You get my point I think.

SATA 6.0 Gbps... Enables slightly faster speeds for the hard drive... If your hard drive supports it. Your drive probably supports SATA 3.0 Gbps, but if you want to change it in the future...

I don't understand what you are trying to say "Actually, motherboard the support GPU or CPU boots to higher Ghz is better or?"
Thanks for picking the motherboard for me, you've been helping me a lot
Sorry mate, wrong typing.... What I mean is if the motherboard support GPU or CPU boots to higher GHz is better or not? Or my concept of boots of CPU and GPU boots is wrong?

SATA 6.0 Gbps is basically the data rate speed the board can go up to with regards to Hard drives. So if you have a hard drive that can support SATA 6.0 Gbps, the transfer rates will peak at 600 MBytes/s. Current SATA is 3.0 Gbps, so peaking close to 300 MBytes/s for data transfer. Faster == better for load times. However, the limitation at this point will be the drives and how fast it will be able to access data and if it conforms with SATA 3.0 Gbps or 6.0 Gbps.

The board can use slower drives, so it isn't necessary to GET new HDs unless you want to get more data throughput.

As for your last question, from the base tech specs it shows, it has a x16 PCI Express slot for 1 GPU running there. The supported CPUs are listed on a tab, the highest, from the looks of it, is the Core i7-2600 (3.4G,L3:8M,iGPU,4C,HT,rev.D2), which should be a quad core, hyper threading processor with 8 Megs of L3 cache, so you have 1 CPU processor type you can go up to from the i5-2500 previously mentioned. (It has 2 other variations listed of the i7-2600, the K and U types.)

The only thing you should concern yourself would be the memory. It will max out at 16 Gigs of DDR2 RAM, which isn't too bad and you don't need to necessarily go that high. I would lean more to 8 Gigs of DDR2, as 4 Gigs on a 64 bit is meh, better to use 8 for some breathing room. Or stay with 4 if you want to run Win7x86(32 bit).

The only real benefit of x64 for you is making use of more memory if you happen to be a heavy multi-tasker.
I get your point, but I would like to change to 64 bit very soon after I have my i5 processor installed. Thanks for the info

Yeah, I'm going for gaming and I will install 64 bit Windows, which you have gave me the link.
What you think about this?

I already helped you finalize the components you are going to buy for the PC. Remember? I still don't understand what you mean "boot to higher GHz". The motherboard can't make the CPU faster, unless you want to overclock. The link isn't necessary, we are already helping you with this...

Okay, then don't mind that already.
I going to order it soon.
I'll let you know once I installed the new motherboard, processor and RAM

I think the word you were trying to look for is 'boost'... not 'boots'. And there are no 'boosts'. It is just 'overclock' in order to get more out of the processor, and again, that assumes you get the K type processors as Slash stated. The ones with the unlocked multiplier to allow you to run at different clock speeds than the recommended.

I see, well I get it.
Thanks for the info, now I gonna just wait for the processor, motherboard and RAM to arrive

What about the graphics card? You aren't going to get a new one? And where are you ordering from?

Well, I think I'm not getting the graphic card yet...
Well, I order from my friend the exactly same model. And I trust him because he know whats he doing, and he is a Microsft Certificate Engineer, and he knows programming, fixing and even he research and install a Microsoft Windows 98 on a phone!!!
