    New Computer, or Better Internet?

    I can't decide. Help and why, please? my internet is about 156 k/b, or should I get a gaming tower around $650? (can't make a poll, I'm on my iTouch.)

    You wont be ably to do much with that new computer with slow internet can you?

    But honestly a 1.5Mbit connection is pretty normal. Unless you are making a jump up to >6.5, I would go for a new comp.

    I would get internet first, because if you have a gaming computer and slow internet well that fails. BUT
    Fast internet and shit computer, you can actually play a decent game, but then you can change into a gaming computer.

    If you live in Australia you would be so lucky because here we have TPG ADSL2+ 180GB per month with the payment of $49.90 per month, unlimited downloads.

    Your download speed is ~150kbps? If so that that is a standard 1.5mbit connection.

    I average about 600 kbs on Steam.
    And 2Mbs on EA games.

    Ok, so by the looks of it, I'm going to get internet first.

    Downstream Speed Up to 7 Mbps
    Upstream Speed Up to 512 Kbps
    E-mail accounts 10
    Web Storage 50 MB
    Is that good? This is the price:
    Promotion

    * Road Runner Broadband from Time Warner Cable - $34.95/mo for 12 months.

    Monthly fee after promotion $44.95
    Looking for a Good CA NA Account?

    Then it would be kb/s not k/b.

    I did a rough calculation. The difference between the bits and bytes and mbits and megbytes is what slows me down.

    Depending on where you live, that sounds like an OK deal. I payed about that much where I used to live, for 6.5 mb/s.
