In Topic: Proto Rail best budget marker?

06 May 2012 - 09:40 PM

Other than the fact that it specifically does not have the name smart parts, its owned by the exact same people.... This is the remnants of smart parts if you dont believe me look it up. Im not saying GoG is bad... Im just saying i trust dye alot more. Iv never had to get any of my parts serviced yet so im yet to experience Dye's services. I think from the fact that iv been using this marker for about a year now and not one single part has broken and i literally JUST changed the eye pipe from the one that came with the marker.
Why do you think GoG bought the rights to all the products smartparts was selling? the Extcy? the G1?

And when a company sells you a faulty product like the one you had with no holes for eyes they are ruining there own reputation and thats just basic business knowledge and has nothing to do with paintball.
Sure its great they sent you a free breach. But you realize they didnt convenience you at all, Infact you bough a pre broken product and had to wait for it to be fixed. Atleast i know when i bought my rail that wasnt going to be the case. Works just as good as it did the first day i bought it.

And GoG as a company does not compare the slightest to Dye, I never said the company was bad. I just said if im going to be making my first purchase into paintball i would trust a product dye made over a product made by Gog simply because they have much more creditable history with there guns and quality assurance. I never said GoG makes bad guns, or GoG in itself is a bad company, I just said there are others that are better... I'm sorry if that strikes a nerve.
Also,
You should wonder why every Gog gun sold in europe is distributed by Smart parts....

#1- I knew smart parts was owned by the Gardner brothers which is now Gogpaintball, sooooooo whats your freakin point??? I haven't heard any bad things about Gog, actually quite the opposite

#2- You obviously don't know that much about smart parts guns otherwise you would know that my vibe was not ''Broken", it was simply missing milling for eyes for the blackheart which comes standard on all the new Envys (Gog's new version of the Vibe). The Vibe blackheart used to come with a new breech and board, but the old vibes which were originally made to work without laser eyes (hence no milling for them) are probably some of the softest guns on paint period. Don't believe me

#3-Dye/Proto isn't perfect in their CS, check out Kevin's amazing experience with Dye CS

#4-Don't pull the OMG my gun is the bestestest card, honestly the two markers are extremely comparable (after the price drop) from two "GREAT" paintball companies. Both operate in an extremely similar fashion, being unbalanced blow-forward spool valves.

#5- Take a look your poll, other people seem to like the Extcy too so I would say Gog is doing something right


I'm not talking about smart parts first of all, i was just using it as an example.
2nd of all, if you have trouble reading you can clearly see I'm not bashing any company's I'm simply pointing in the direction of the better marker i understand you may have some emotional attachment to your marker so when others talk bad about it you feel the need to defend its honor. Sure all the guns that have been mentioned in this thread to some degree are "good" and no one is saying they arent but some are better than others and i personally think with the argument iv supplied that the proto rail beats everything else on the market right now.

I dont know where you were going with that SLG video,....i think you forgot we are talking about a completely different marker, Iv never heard of people having to send there rail in even once so that point was irrelevant, So at the bare minimum stay on topic.

If you think that I'm wrong the least you could do is not make a weak attempt at predicting my reaction, and supply some Useful data to support your argument.

Fanboy? Hardly. I do currently have an Intel C2D, but my planned upgrade is this. The build you specced is very good, and all I would change is the 960 to a 955 and cheaper RAM. I simply do not agree with you on whether or not Intel is good for budget builds and if having a budget changes your purchasing decision. If you pick up a C2Q using the Yorkfield architecture it will run most games well, especially if overclocked. If you are unable to deal with someone having a differing opinion, then I wish you good luck in life and am leaving this conversation. Toodles.


Actually it was You and the other guy that decided to comment on my suggestion. All i said was stay away from intel. I never even read your posts. So explain to me how im the one with the problem again?
On another note however, i agree with your choice of parts. Iv personally used them all and there all great. Infact iv run that 9550 into the freakin ground with gaming and it still works fantastic so i hope it works out good for you, And im playing games like Empire Total war on like max graphics with like extreme unit counts so i think the proccessor should be able to handle whatever you throw at it. After all it can be OC'd anyways if you need a boost outta it.

If on a budget.... one rule, stay the hell away from intel
here is the cheapest gaming computer that will run any game you can think of.

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103995 (processor) if you want somthing with a little more power grab one of these, http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103894
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131767 (motherboard)

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130750 (graphics card)
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145345 (8G of good ram)
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822136075 (hard drive that comes with a free dvd drive with burner)
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817371016 ( cheapest power supply that will run any of the nicer graphics cards needed to play games like skyrim for example)

after that take your pick of a case and thats prlly the cheapest gaming computer you can put together

I see a problem with this build. I'm concerned about the processor since its only an AM3 socket and the motherboard is an AM3+, whether or not that extra pin in the AM3+ will be an issue I don't know.


As far as a budget Intel build, here is one. And I might add, all of the pieces I found are exactly the same price as yours.

  • You can purchase this processor for the same price as the AMD. And the best part about this is you can upgrade to the i5 or i7 whenever you feel like it, both of which out perform any AMD on the market right now.
  • With that processor you need a new motherboard, this is the one I would suggest.
  • This is the RAM I would suggest. It has a better latency and it is XMP Ready for your SB processors.
  • Also I found a PSUthat will give you 700W and is 80 PLUS Bronze Certified.
And as you can see, a budget Intel build is perfectly possible.


Many things are possible but some things just arent worth the money. All i did was give a brief outline of some good parts to look at and it got into an AMD vs Intel battle.
Mobo, out of stock, proc out of stock as well. Also that motherboard has no onboard graphics at all so in order to use it you need a video card. Which is more money.... and also if your new to computers trying to fix a visual issue is probably one of the harder things to do so your recommendation may be the same price but no were near the same quality. Also phenom II x4 965 smokes the i3 and its the same price. So i dont know why you even arguing with me and its entertaining that you represent computer help in this forum considering your ignorant as hell and actually don't know shit about computers. Also OC'd phenoms EASILY compare to early generation i series processors. 2nd gen Intel processors ( the good ones ) also aren't OC compatible, only K series can. and those run for $200+ So again. Your intel build isnt as good as a amd atleast in terms of a budget build. You should try reading an article in any electronics or PC magazine / website and realize that INTEL DOES NOT PLAY THE BUDGET PC MARKET AMD DOES! I believe i delivered the answer to this question long before you did, dont need to argue with me because im right. Intel fan boy. If you would like a creditable source to back up what im saying in terms of my choice of proc being better, go ahead and look. look were the 965 is, and look were your I3 is............................ http://www.cpubenchm...ommon_cpus.html

Its kinda babyish that we are arguing over helping someone . I'm sorry if you guys get personally offended by an adverse opinion on computer hardware, and i never ment to compete my knowledge against yours. Intel is a great company that rules the more expensive sector of the computer hardware industry. And rightfully so. Its just that when your looking to save money I find AMD delivers.I could take Phenom II X2 555, b55 it ( if you dont know what that means, unlock the 2 extra cores ), and make it just as fast as the processor you suggested him buy and you kno how much that processor costs..... probably about 80 dollars, last year. so please PLEASE don't argue with me over this because i PROMISE you, that you wont win.
