well thats most of it for the important stuff...
And im very disapointed, i dont know much about computer it was 700$ from costco and i wanted this computer to play games, recent games.
I just want to play games like
Just Cause 2
Fallout New vegas
i can play SIms Medieval on customized lowmed-low settings
and some other games that i didnt buy yet .. anyway i cant play my games with good graphics and its pissing me off.
ex. i play new vegas and enemies start shooting at me 30seconds before i see them.. because i had to decrease the view distance to the minimum.
Anyways.. i would like advices on which commercial ( some that i could find in the computers costco sells ) graphic card i should go for.. or if you see a computer costco is selling around 700$ that would have decent to good gaming capacities, be sure id be very thankful ! and i cant really get a pc out of costco because i can exchange my computer within the 1.5-2 next months but i can get a refund so .. ill just go for a computer trade and pay the balance if the one good for gaming is a little more expensive .. annnd well thats kinda all ..
Oh and .. i dont think i want to get another all-in-one crap PC , this time im planning to get on with an old school desktop, with all the stuff separated..
Thanks a lot for reading , i hope someone will be helping me soon or later
I don't think all-in-one's have expansion slots do they?
Are you willing to assemble your own PC, or are you stuck buying a pre-built? If pre-built does it have to be from costco? They don't seem to have a huge selection and all there computers seem to be in need of a graphics upgrade.
It's like a laptop that doesn't fold out and has an external keyboard pretty much lol.
sounds like a crappy deal, perhaps he should take your advice and get a pc he can tangle with. (a tower) Also, it seems for 700 he could get a much better pc if it weren't an AIO. For 700 you could get a GTX 570 and a decent motherboard/cpu/psu combo going on haha
It is much easier than you think to put a video card in a desktop PC (although totally impossible in your current all-in-one). Every single computer on the Costco website is going to suck for gaming compared to what you pay for it. The one I linked to earlier ( http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=116256...|84|56671&N=4047237 ) at least has a dedicated video card. I think you have to spend like 900 bucks at costco to get one that's a step up for gaming with an HD 5570.
