Whats a good prebuilt pc for 400 dollars or less that can play most modern games?
But in all seriousness this is my speccy, and the only two games to have given me any framerate issues are The Witcher 2 with ubersampling and Sleeping dogs with 16x AA
I'm unable to notice any difference between 4x and 16 or even 32x AA however
If you need a laptop for school etc as well, I recommend this. Its $60 more but being reasonable with your budget, this is one of the best options, unless you want a desktop. I got this for school and while it doesn't replace my rig, it preforms fine playing most games on medium settings.
Thanks for the ONLY contribution in this thread
Yeah, I am about to go back to shcool and need a work computer with small games on the side
Nothing bg, stuff like rust or counter strike
A laptop would be aright, but they can be pretty pricey
I also would prefer a desktop since im a animator and laptops are very uncomfortable with a tablet and stuff
OP here is this a good desktop?
It works fine for me, I have a whole setup where i hook it up to my TV and use it as a dual screen. I also animate and shit like that, Its a little clunky for maya but I needed a laptop.
please canada bros help me out.
Should I just bide my time until black friday and then pick up parts?
also opinions on rig idea?
"What is five seconds in google."
Building a computer makes it sound way more complicated than it is.
When I thought of "building" a computer I imagined tons of tiny parts that I had to know how they all worked.
Realistically it was buy a tower with a motherboard in it, plug in shit where it fits and then connect it all to the powersupply, screw in some extra fans here and there and seal it up
It doesn't exist.
My computer's a prebuilt and it works for what I use it for, but what I use it for is small indie games and browsing /v/, and not much else.
I'm still considering building a better one. I don't know shit about building computers though, and if I did I'd just want a mid-tier one that could run games like sonic generations and dustforce with no slowdown. Not much else.
Not OP but my computer's a godawful prebuilt. What parts of this could I salvage for a new computer and how much would you guess it'd cost to build something semi-decent?
might want to get different RAM, that cooler wont fit with high profile RAM
learn how, learn the bits, the good manufacturers and your budget, it is really very simple
yes and no
research your parts and shit
this is a good guide but it shows if you have a bit of extra $ you can move up
or if you find one that's on sale you can see how it ranks
also use pcpart picker- that site is based for organization, rig building/ part lists and tracking of prices
Alright, cool. One last question, how high should you go just to be able to run modern games fairly well? I'm no graphicsfag but I want it to actually work at a steady framerate that's at least 30FPS.
I'm sorry for all this shit but I'm going from a godawful prebuilt to something that I want to last me at least a few years and I know literally nothing about PC building.
