    So I have to buy a computer. I currently have 3 lap tops, and each is running bots, and it's just not enough. I haven't shopped for a PC computer in a long time, though back in the day I've put a few together myself. Back in the day being over a decade ago.

    Now I run on lap tops. However, it's my understanding that I can get a much more powerful PC computer at a much smaller price than a lap top.

    If so far so good... I currently can't shell out $1,000+ to buy it. However, I'm thinking I can buy a badass Motherboard, and then pimp it out as time goes by. I don't have to buy everything in one go.

    I have a mouse, I have a keyboard, I can even probably use my oldest lap top's screen so that I don't have to buy a monitor. So I have to get a motherboard, a power supply, an SSD hard drive, a shit ton of ram, and a graphics card.

    And a box, maybe... :D

    That said, I don't plan on doing anything on this computer other than running bots. There will be no movie watching no game playing no porn viewing, nothing at all other than botting.

    Which brings me to think I don't really need a super powerful graphics card, right?

    Electricity is super cheap in my country, so I don't care about the power supply's voltage as far as that goes. But does a higher voltage/better power supply affect performance?

    I know a thing or two about a thing or two computers, but I'm no expert.

    Advice, thoughts?

    Thanks

    you don't even need a graphics card. just buy a CPU that supports integrated graphics (which uses your ram memory for graphics)

    I'm not sure my country has pc builder sites. I'm thinking just buy all the components and put it together myself. I did it when I was 15 years old, why not now 15 years later :D

    That's what I'm talking about, shots fired! Thank you :)

    So a graphics card doesn't affect performance then?

    buy a cheap MB with integrated graphics, no graphic card, the best ryzen CPU you can afford (of course make sure to match it with the MB), 2x8gb ram. power supply should be 500W/ you dont need more than that (if no graphic cards). 120gb SSD
    thats it, you will be able to run bot like crazy.

    A "cheap" motherboard? Isn't the motherboard the... like the base of it all? The most important ingredient. It all depends on the motherboard. How much ram I can add, the motherboard is what will allow me to in time build it up and make it stronger. If I buy a cheap motherboard I'm sabotaging myself. No?

    By cheap motherboard i mean nothing fancy, there are a lot of motherboards that have stuffs for gamers etc and they are usually expensive and you wont use it. Cheap i mean normal, avarage.

    Or... I could save myself precious time and trouble and just buy a ready made one.

    What do you guys thing of this? https://www.winwin.rs/racunar-altos...00-16gb-ssd-240gb-hd-grafika-dvd-8626524.html

    That's about $650 dollars. Scroll down to half the page to see specs.

    It has 16GB Ram, and 240 SSD. It has integrated graphic card and sound card, so I would imagine they're not too great, which I don't care about, at all.

    What do you guys think about this huh?

    Go AMD Ryzen or i7-9th or i9, ROG-MAXIMUS-XI-HERO-WI-FI 64gb in total, that would replace 3bots in no time.

    Guys how does this look to you for about $500 bucks?

    [​IMG]

    Never mind that it doesn't have an operating system. I'll install a completely Legit version :suspicious: after I get it

    It looks like it has a bunch of good shit:

    240GB SSD (new, not refurbished - whatever the hell that means)
    16GB Ram (Kingston - that's a good brand if I'm not mistaken)
    Ryzen (you guys kept mentioning it, I don't even know what it means, but it must be good if yall is jerking off to it :D )
    CPU is 3.5ghz, which I think is good
    No operating system (I think this keeps cost down)

    So what do you guys thing?
