Hello everyone! Rathalos150 is my older brother (in real life) and we somewhat shared the rathalos150 account. This was mostly because my parents would not have wanted me to communicate with "strangers" as they put it, seeing that I am very young. I am 15 years old and will be 16 in on tuesday.

The whole reason I am making this account is to clear up any confusion there might have been if me and my (not so active) brother continued to share the same account. 

About me: I enjoy mapping to some degree. I probably would like it more if my computer could handle it better. Do you guys know that god-awful computer that Rathalos150 uses? Well I use it too! biggrin I am a lifeguard for the first time this summer (In hopes of replacing this computer) and I enjoy competetive swimming. I play video games far too much for my own good. One of my favorite things to do it make youtube videos about videogames (I mainly just play minecraft until I can afford a capture card)

If you are interested in hearing my voice or in minecraft check it out. http://www.youtube.com/user/LegendaryRath

Things I've done: I helped my brother out a lot on Medicus, although I don't see why he never finished it. It was almost done in my opinion. I also made a map a little over a year ago called DM-Pacific for the Epic Forums. Other than that I haven't done very much but I am interested in learning alot more about how mapping from all of you guys!

Thanks for your time smile I'll see you all around.

Hello m8 :)

Welcome on UOF "officially" young Ryan :D

I'm pretty sure you can learn many things in mapping from all the "dinosaurs" here LOL

Wow! very warm welcomes from everyone. Thanks guys.

When I do get around to getting a new pc do you guys think you can help me figure out what would be best for the money?

Depending on the money you can spend on a new PC (and on your location).
Here in Germany I spent 425€ on a pretty decent machine that can run UT3 with full details with a nice performance and that can run Bulletstorm with beautiful graphics!

If you go AMD you can spec up a decent PC(not inc. monitor, keyboard n mouse) for around$800-900 if you can get the parts at a good price.
It's a shame there's no MSY stores in Tassie, otherwise you'd be laughing!

thats a lot of money for a just 'decent' pc :)

but as always it depends on how many parts you can use from you old rig, f.e. case, dvd drive, harddisk

yeah imo for a just decent AMD pc u need the half but for a top end AMD pc (which will never be called "high end " by intel addicts....and they are right...lol^^)800/900 is ok
a phenom x4 coupled to an ATI gfx isnt that expensive and is largely enough for UT3

In my eyes it's a "decent" PC, not high end but can run today's games with pretty decent/high quality. My only problem was that I was so lucky to have a bad start on this rig (my GPU was almost defect from the beginning and had a tendency to crash with nice stripes in the colours that were the most visible on the screen - in UT3 (before colour ini tweak) it was GREY! So don't tell me UT3 has colours lol. Then one of my two RAMs died and I just had 2GB. Never heard that Corsair RAM died without any reason and wasn't dead from the beginning - had this happen though. From one day to another it died... confuse)

Out of the top of my head, here's my rig to give you a "starting spot":
AMD Athlon II X4 3GHz with Katana cooling (never gets even close to the "borderline of death"), 4GB RAM DDR3 with dual channel support (standard these days, by Corsair), AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5770 (quiet as hell! and I had bad luck with it), Be Quiet! power supply unit 530W (again quiet as hell + should be reliable), msi mainboard (forgot which one and too lazy to look it up) and a 500GB HDD (honestly, I don't need more. The max I will use is 350 anyway with all my old games - sadly I won't be able to run Destruction Derby 2 anymore... have to see if I can still run Duke Nukem 3D - hopefully! cry).

The only things I could reuse from my "stone-age rig" were:
My ancient DVD drive (lol), my laptop mouse (lol), my old keyboard that has a tendency to not register what I've just typed on some occasions (still rare though so no need to buy a new lol), my nice LCD monitor (not 3D (pff UT in 3D, don't need that) and no full HD nor HD, honestly who needs that shyte anyway!? Just a fancy extra yawn) and my fancy speakers and subwhoofer. aww

Apart from these parts and my FANCY case this computer is comepletely new and has a two year guarantee for all parts (and more for some others, like my RAM - LIFETIME (which is 10 years here in Germany lol) biggrin). Also, I didn't overclock it because of the guarantee. Otherwise I would lose it. aww

Now my question, what have you paid for this one?

You can get a 2500k, P67 Mobo, 8GB(2x4GB) DDR3 and a gfx card like GTX460/HD6850/HD for ~430€, thats ~620 US-$ - asuming you know how to all build parts together.

Thats more than decent for UT3, very good Editor performance, gfx card can run the game at highest details at hd resolution with constantly more than 75 FPS, propably even more.

Yaz just have to remember that in Auzzie we get ripped off for most things retail by about 40% compared to other countries. eg.. in steam/itunes we pay 40% more than america for exactly the same digital download....(the Auzzie dollar is above parity against US yet an album costs $16.99 here and the US pay $9.99)... :/
$900 here will get ya a AMD x4, mobo, 4gig of ram, 1TB hdd, 560 gtx, decent case n decent PSU. Personally I wouldn't go any less than a quad core these days. Quads will last a while as well!

+1
I would also try to get 8GB RAM if you want to map, should be available for ~70$

Honestly, I am thinking of putting ALL of the money I make this summer into a single rig. I want thing to be so amazing that it literally transforms into an autobot, picks up my old rig and eats it! (I may have exaggerated somewhat)

In all seriousness I have no problem dropping 2k on this thing if I see the right thing for the right price. I have heard really good things about the 6990. It's supposed to be better than dual 6970s. I also heard that it is the loudest and most expensive card anywhere as well.

the 590 from nvidia beats it but not really on performances...lol: its more reasonably sized but still huge, it eats a lil less power but still eating like an ogster, it works less hot because they lowered the GF110 a lot (it s in fact like 2x580GTX lowered) but it still a toaster and it cast less noise but still noisy like a hairdryer....and to finish it costs round 650Euros...from what i heared watercooling is required  on the 6990 because the noise is so loud that it destroy users gaming pleasure

thoses bigpu cards are the nightmare of air cooling and u ll not see often manufacters trying them on special aircooled versions...lol...


Nvidia 570 & 580, ATI 6950 & 6970 are what need a classical gamer (easy to SLI or Crossfire em if u want more l8r) and here u ll find super aircooled, OCed from stock and even amiliored(better components) models for decent prices from several manufacters

 

... except if u use a big big screen or if u plane to bench a lot it s quite a waste of money to buy such brand new superpowered GFX's....it always hurt to buy a 600$ material and to see it for 200$ on EBay 6 month l8r...i think all what i ve read from "reputed reviewers" goes in that way

 

on the mobo choose , if u go on the AMD side be sure to buy a good AM3+ model with at least 2 pcie slots, with sata 6gb/s and USB3...they are often able to run Nvidia SLI or ATI crossfire...the mobo is the base and with the AMD mobo/cpu retrocompatibility politic u can keep it for years and improove it by a new cpu or a new GFX

 i hope this makes sence and can help a little

Agreed. I could always get two card that are way cheaper but close in performance and end up with a better result.

I'm not going to decide what to get now because I don't know what things will cost in the future (can I see the future? I wish)

However, I know that I will most likely build my own rig. I have never done anything like it before so I know I will have issues at first. Will you guys be able to help me when the time comes? (If I can't figure it out)
