  1. Hello Guys!
    I am planning to open a Gaming Parlor.Initially I want to install 10 PCs, 3-4 PS3, 2 XBOXs.I was wondering which configuration would be best for PCs which can run all games released until now coming in near months.Also pls provide additional suggestions which can help attracting more gamers.
    Thanks!

    I don't know, $2500 to $3500 might get you 10 very striped down P.C.'s, it might get you 1 of those Play Station 3's, but the whole smash, all of it, seriously doubtful! I guess it all comes down to how much you want to spend on each computer, what you want them to do, what you want them to have inside ect. ect. ect.

    You will probably have to go after this type of machine, at the price tag.

    You might work things out grabbing a couple X-Box systems like this, at the price it's pretty good.

    As far as those Play Station 3 systems, you might have to go this route, for the price it's ok.

    Remember a game console out of the box is ok, but nothing is better than giving the console (two) controllers. For the Play Station I would recommend going cheap for the other controllers. Buy yourself 3 of these and put one each on every console.

    For the X-Box's you will need more controllers, I recommned shopping at a store like Gamestop, there you can buy used for cheap. Like these little deal, not a bad price for used.

    Maybe if you go (previously owned) on as much hardware as you can get your hands on, and go (bottom of the barrel) as far as those 10 computers, similar to one I showed you, maybe and I mean a pretty serious maybe...............you'll pull it off!

    Good luck to you......:)

    ((UPDATE)).....I feel like such a goof, I just noticed the money budget, it's not $2500 to $3500, it's a whooping $25,000 to $35,000, never mind my post, that type of money will most likely buy you all that you need. But heck, you could go the route I showed and save some of that money, throw it back into the business or spend it on yourself, whatever makes you happy. Sorry for the mix up! :)

    thanks a lot guys.I forgot to mention one thing the total budget also includes the cost of shop and all other setups(electricity, decoration, LAN Connections and all that stuff).Lets say around $10000, cuz its in a big city.So my equipment budget comes down to $15000-$20000.I think that's enough for startup.
    I want to use PC's for gaming purposes.I don't want the best for now, but at least capable enough to play all games till now and in coming 5-6 months.
    I was also thinking about sponsorship of any good gaming company.If you guys know the procedure or anything that can help me, pls tell me.I think after installing $1200 worth PCs will rock my Parlor...:cool: and any company will be ready to sponsor.What you say?

    I am also planning to buy a dedicated server for multilayer gaming.How that sounds? Which will be the best ?
