Small fish BIG ocean - Page 3

post #21 of 22
thats because its a pretty bare bones, system, check out some other builds we have at OCn.. most $1000 + which is where MOST gamers set their PC gear at, others like me $2500 easy, and some take it to a whole new level hitting 10K, to be honest, if i were in your situation i wouldnt be thinking of a new computer, i would be thinking of finding a job for some green, and saving up for a car or something and finding a place to rent... just my 2cents.gif anyways... the above system is a fairly good starting point for a basic computer with bare essentials to start playing low level games or mid level games on Low settings, you not going to be maxing out skyrim on it, or anything your going to be playing Team Fortress 2 on it tongue.gif (well skyrim on low maybe) however if i were you i would look into about a $1200 price tag for something that will actually give you some power, not only that but you should take time to do research and put together your own computer.

Just found that on ebay...it's not stupidly powerfull I know...but will that do for basic gaming needs like Fallout 3 and the like?

*Edit*
Also would that be a good start for me to be able to upgrade in the future when I have the money?
