Greetings, folks! Today we want to talk a bit about technology and what type of computer you should get if you want to play online bingo in optimum conditions. We are going to take you through each part and tell you the perfect components for a PC that will enable you to enjoy our bingo games to the max.
Processor, mainboard and memory
The processor is the most important part of your computer. In all fairness, you don’t need an ultra-fast processing unit to play online bingo. However, you are going to want something that will last a very long time. Your options are very limited here, as you can only choose from two major brands: Intel or AMD. Both of them are excellent performance-wise, but both of them come with unique advantages. For example, Intel processors are known to be more durable, while AMD units are a lot cheaper. The reason for that is that Intel processors are generally cooler than their AMD counterparts. And if a processor runs at higher temperatures, its life expectancy is decreased.
This is why Intel’s Core range, particularly the i3 and i5 models are considered perfect if you want a computer that won’t get outdated for several years. If you have the extra money, you could go for an i7, but it won’t be necessary if you only want to play online bingo. The AMD FX X6 and X8 represent cheaper alternatives, and will prove themselves quite adequate for a very long period of time, as long as you take care of them.
Your mainboard must be selected after you have determined the type of processor you want to buy. Things are pretty straightforward here, as you just have to select a motherboard that is compatible with your processor of choice. Furthermore, if you want to play online bingo on your new computer for a long time, your motherboard should be compatible with new technology, like USB 3, DDR3 and such.
The memory is also very important and, in this day and age, you should not have less than 8 GB DDR3. As far as this type of component is concerned, more is always better.
Storage and video cards
If you choose one of Intel’s Core processors, you should know that they also contain pretty decent graphics processing units. However, these will eat a portion of your RAM memory for as long as they are in use. If you want to go for the superior but more expensive option of purchasing a dedicated video card, something like the NVidia GT 630 will prove more than adequate if you want to be in a bingo room and play online slots at the same time. If you will also play demanding 3D games, you will need a GTX 660 card or better, with the recommended model being the GTX 760.
As far as storage is concerned, the more the better. You should get a hard drive that can hold 1 terabyte of data and has at least 7200 rotations per minute. If you also want a lot of speed, you should buy a solid state drive to accompany your hard drive.
That’s all, folks
And that’s about all you need to know about the computer parts you’ll need if you want to play online bingo. We are not going to give any prices for these parts, because they vary wildly, according to the country you live in.
