Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Now first of all I would like to say that I have no experience actually building computers and frankly don't want to touch that shit with a twenty four and a half foot pole. Instead I waant to try and find the best gaming system I can buy for one thousand dollars. However, it doesn't need a good video card or a huge hard drive. I already ordered a card, and the HD was salvaged from my last system. So with that in mind, I have some choices:
My local service shop suggested this theoretical system they could order from HP, basically I would like your opinion on this:
Micro tower, so its like small.
Pentium D 2.66 Ghz, One gig of RAM and a DVD RW drive. Video card and HD is shitty but, as I said.
I could also go to Comp USA tommorow and browse around and just buy something and put the video card in. This is what I am leaning towards as of now. Is this a good decision?
I would like to thank you in advance for any help you guys could give me because, I know nothing about the actual art of building and you guys are the only ones I know who do. I am really in a bind here and would appreciate any help I could get.
