    ” Where did you get this PC? Your processor is weird, I can’t find its specs anywhere. Go to My computer –> Properties –> Device Manager and see what it actually is. With the specs you’re telling us it sounds like it’s at least 3 years old. Also trying to play games on integrated graphics and have it not working = your own fault. Integrated graphics are meant to get a PC barely started up, and maybe browse the internet that’s about it.  Provide a budget so that we can know what to recommend.   You really should have done your research before buying a PC for gaming purposes; you didn’t even know your GPU was integrated. You probably also don’t even know if the processor you’re upgrading to is compatible with your mobo or not, or if it’s even better than your current one. “

    I got it at Best Buy.  Specs:  6gb of RAM 1TB Processor AMD Athlon II x4 630 Processor 2.80GHz Windows 7 Home Premium  NVIDIA GeForce 9100  I don’t know very much about PCs, and I didn’t have much time to research because it was a quick thing, my computer broke down on a Saturday morning and by the end of Saturday I had a new PC, I’m an idiot, I told the guy at Best Buy I wanted to play games from around 2006 and this piece of shit can’t even run Psychonauts, it was partially his fault, the fucker should’ve known I’d be getting an HD monitor in the first place, second of all, I didn’t fucking mean play games from 2005-6 in lowest settings! He fucked me over! I should’ve gotten one with a NVIDIA GTS model GPU and AMD Athlon 64 x2 5000 processor but nope, I was too fucking stupid. “

    There’s no such thing as a 1TB processor >.> 
     
    Let me give you a tip, if you’re planning on playing games at high settings, don’t buy dodgy 3 year old computers from Best Buy and learn what basic computer specs mean.

    This is why I hate PC gamers, most of you are like this. Fuck off, seriously. “

    You bought a PC with zero knowledge about what you should be looking for, and then you complain about how  much of a hassle PC gaming is when your games don’t work on a 3 year old integrated GPU. It’s pretty much like you walked into a store and bought a PSP, and then you’re all surprised when Bayonetta doesn’t work on it and complain how much of a hassle console gaming is. You fuck off.  “

    He already said his old PC broke so he didn’t have time to do any research and it’s not like everyone knows everything about PC hardware.  Plus the clerk at Best Buy didn’t really help. If he gets a good Graphics card his pc would be pretty damn good.   Also Emandude check if your OS is Windows 7 64 bit, I mean it should be but it’s just that if it was 32 bit it wouldn’t recognise all your 6GB of RAM. “

    It is indeed 64 bit, also, my HARD DRIVE is 1TB, my bad.

  2. Wait… But this is the same day it was recorded, right? That never happens… 
     
    Edit: Also, yes, bring Gary back more, I find him quite entertaining. 

  3. It only took 30 minutes to get to something about other than the iPhone4.
    I’m still waiting on my Froyo update… I’m hoping that the OTA isn’t dependant on my carrier (Rogers) to actually push the update since that’ll take forever.

  4. Gary was great.  Have him back some more.  Plus a little Apple love in the mix helps even it out.  I’m talking about you Will.  I saw you snicker at Ryan Davis’s macbook in the ‘What’s in your bag?’ video.  Just kidding.  I know you have plenty of OSX love.
