Gaming PC Advice (Professional or Experiance Knowledge Only Please)

  Edemardil 23 Oct 11

I have been running games on my laptop since I moved outside of my country (Left the Xbox 360 home) so I figured it was time to buy a new PC that I can game on. I run LOTRO (lowest settings) fine on this laptop but playing games like Portal 1 and 2 and other Steam games (I want Skyrim pretty bad and Dead Island) is almost impossible. I think the Total War series works fine for me and even that´s on lowest settings. So, I'm not on a huge budget and I am sure most anything will run better than what I've got now. Here is what I was looking at. Do you think any of these three would be good for holding a few games (at least 10)like LOTRO full specs, Skyrim full specs, Portal 1 and 2, L4D, Amnesia (which I still cant play because of specs) Dead Island or are these low end PCs with low end systems?

This is free advice computer forum - you don't get to pick who responds to your question.

It might help if you provided us with some information about "these three", so we can comment.

Sorry all! Here is the link:

RE: Mr or Miss Forum Editor, That was a polite way of saying 'If you do not know what your are talking about, please do not reply' though You are 100% correct with your less than polite response. I assume that because it is free advice I can also post what I want in the thread and title as long as it isn't outside the lines of the TOS? None the less thanks for the spot check on the link.

Of course you can but whether you would get any response may be a different question.

My response was factual, not less than polite.

This is a computer help forum, contributed to by people who give freely of their time. Neither you nor I have any way of knowing whether responses come from people who know what they're talking about.

Your link doesn't work, by the way.

That's interesting. I've tried the link on three machines in Chrome,IE9,Firefox and Safari, and all of them produce the same result, which is 'Unable to open the web-page at'
