Update and Upgrade.
« on: August 07, 2016, 10:45:22 am »
Hey Opticrafters,
 It's been a while since I've posted on the forums, let alone play some Minecraft with you all. This would be because I'm currently deployed in the Middle East. I'll be here for another month fixing planes and making money. It's really hot here.

During my time here, I'm pretty sure the heat and lack of use kinda fucked with my laptop. The sound only works for the first few minutes then cuts out and it overheats really easy (In A/C'ed rooms). I cant get it back no matter what I try. My laptop's going on 3 years so I do plan on building a rig during the fall/winter after paying some bills; however, I haven't really payed much attention to the PC market in 2015/2016 despite taking a computer hardware repair class during winter. I can build, I just don't know what to get or why lol.  I don't really have too much time to search here due to 12hr+ workdays and terrible wi-fi. Any pointing in the right direction is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I assume you want a desktop now since you said you can build. This is actually a great time to build a PC as nvidia rolled out their 10xx series and the performance is mind blowing. Amd will also be rolling out gpu's in the next few months.


You can save money by going with a cheaper motherboard or power supply but I feel those are 2 things you don't want to go cheap on.

Do you want a specific color theme?
