*Yeah, I'm reposting it here. I'm just trying to get as much help as possible. Sorry if it's considered spamming.*
Hey, there, I was hoping that you guys would be willing to share your thoughts on a few pieces of hardware I plan on purchasing for my computer. I've never properly made one before, and it wasn't until now that I seriously thought about investing in a proper inexpensive gaming computer. I'm hoping this thing will be around the $500 range, give or take $100, while still maintaining reasonable enough power to play the games I like. I'm not expecting high-definition, 200 FPS game experiences - I just want to not worry about weather a game will run on my computer or not before purchase, even if the game has to run on the lowest settings; I'm willing to sacrifice a comfortable gaming experience as long as it means I can get a good computer for cheap that could play whatever game I want.
I've been bouncing around forums and with friends. I'm hoping you guys could give me your thoughts on this setup:
I was just hoping if you guys could tell me if this is any good for my purposes of a decent, working gaming computer or if there needs to be any changes to it, be it non-compatibility issues, better hardware for cheaper costs, or general crappiness. You guys know better and more than I do; that's the reason why I came here in the first place, so I'm hoping you could give me a hand.
By low to medium, do you mean in terms of settings? Or do you mean that any game I play will probably have low-mid framerate and such?
If it's the former, I don't mind - I've been playing Killing Floor on my laptop on the lowest settings possible so everything's a giant polygon, but I didn't mind. If it's the latter, then that's a problem, and I was wondering if you had a better (yet fairly inexpensive) replacement.
