Sell it all for 1Follow

I'm seriously considering selling everything I own to buy a good computer to run this game.

But I'm not sure who to buy from.
I was wondering If I could get some opinion on the various PC companies as to which one has the best product. I figured there were enough hardcore gamers here to have an educated opinion.

Wasn't sure if this was off topic or in keeping with the sort of "Computer build" threads.

If you are not comfortable building your own system, http://www.ibuypower.com, and http://www.cyberpowerpc.com are two good "custom" PC vendors.

However, its most cost efficient to build one yourself. People around here including myself are willing to help with choosing parts if your not sure, and after some reading putting it together isnt too terribly hard.

Simple advice, pure and simple. Steer clear of the 'companies' like the plague. Build it yourself or have someone you know do it. There are enough around these days that there is no excuse for someone buying an 'integrated' system.

I'm really not comfortable building my own, lol. I have gremlins, the bugs bunny kind that like to set off bombs. Every time I've ever tried to do anything to hardware it's very bad.

Like I said, find someone who is. They are a dime a dozen in today's day and age.

That's implying that it'll be worth playing.

I'm extremely excited about this game. I've been reading the forums for a long time, I got accepted to beta right before my old system ate itself, so I've been reading the beta info but been unable to play. I've been surviving off of a friends hand me down system I bought off of him for crackhead prices. Even if I get the game and hate it I'll still have a sweet system to play some other game on.

"Worth playing" is an opinion, and I'm sure the OP has already made up his/her mind about that if they're that intent on buying a new PC for it. Not thinking it's worth buying is a valid opinion, but that's not what the OP was asking for.

Back on the subject of selling everything, I sold a bunch of old games and random stuff I had laying around so i could buy some Logitech Z-2300 speakers Smiley: grin. My headset that I used for WoW doesnt cut it when you compare it to the music / sounds in XIV. Plus im just tired of wearing a stupid headset all the time!

I was thinking of going the headset/Vet route, but wasn't sure about that either.

Well, if you're really THAT strapped for cash, you shouldn't anyway.
