Computer Nerds/Computer Gamers! In here!
I have been thinking about splurging and going back to my "gaming" roots of computer gaming. Honestly, even though I've played consoles for years I think the PC is the best of the best and I miss it. RTS on consoles suck! FPS are 10x better and you can make your owns mods for games.
What is a good gaming computer? I don't wany anything over the top because I don't have too much $$$, I'm gonna swing the "I need it for college too" scheme...it might work.
I've read that real PC gamers build their own machines overtime, but I don't know too much about computers and rather have a decent package already setup.
Any ideas on what I should look at? I have no clue what is good out there, and I will need it for college eventually so I'm clueless on what is a good mix.
I like RPGs and old FPS so is there something that can run DOS games without doing all this weird crap to my PC?
I don't want to spend a lot, maybe around $1000, is that a good computer?
