Im wanting a new gaming computer, and im wanting one that will run FFXIV along with other newer games.
Im trying to decide between building my own, or just buying one.
If i bought one, it would be the new Alienware. Here's the specs:
3.3 GHz Intel Core i3-2120,
Nvidia Geforce GT545 graphics,
4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 1TB harddrive.
Thats for $699
I may opt for the top of the line model which would be:
3.4 Ghz Intel Core i7-2600
Nvidia Geforce GTX 555 graphics
8GB of ram. 1tb hdd.
That one costs a little over $1200
Anyone know which would be better? Would the cheaper model run FFXIV decently? Or should i just give up and build my own? I LOVE the design of Alienware, but i feel that i could easily build a more powerful one.
