Mostly, I to make this PC not suck at games so my bro and sis can use it on the living room TV, or one of the many TVs that are available (I got one so I could get 1080p from my laptop, then my bro got one because BIGTVOMG AND my mom won one...all that in less than half a year o_O). A new PC would be a good idea but, it's not a huge priority for me (I got my badass laptop) or my dad (you already got a PC, why do you want a new one?)

Hmm, Dell seems to have a nice PC but it's a bit too pricey for my current budget. If I can get my bro and dad into this, we could get a new PC

I'll go and look for local prices of video cards and PCs, maybe tomorrow or next week.

I haven't done a lot of looking around. It's a possibility still, but it may be that they are charging too much for a pre-built. Still, it's an option and I wish you well in looking for something.


As to the RAM -- ]When you tried them individually, did you use the same slot both times? If not, try leaving ONE in at a time in one of the DIMM slots, move it to the other, and then repeat with the other stick. If they continue to get detected in either slot but fail when both sticks are in, then I am not sure what's going on. I would assume that just because Kingston put higher-capacity memory parts on the newer stick but everything else is the same that it should be compatible. Perhaps this is not the case -- you may try asking Kingston.

Yeah, they're more expensive here. See that laptop Jagos wants for less than 6k? I would have to pay almost 2x to get it >_>. I've tried all the possible combinations with the RAM, and the results are the same. Now that you mentioned it, why haven I asked Kingston themselves >_>. Time to see if they have a support chat/page/something
