Recently, I bought Fallout 4 along with the Contraptions and Automatron DLC's. I've been working for it since I don't have a job and finally got it. Sadly, the game is too awesome for my computer.
This has finally blown the last Popsicle stand and I am initiating a goal to design, fund, and build a new desktop. The one I have currently is a $1200 gift from my grandfather. Here are the specs:
- CPU: Intel i5 Quad Core @ 1.4GHz - 2.0GHz
- GPU: intel HD Graphics 5000 (Integrated, and I was surprised to find out that I could run the Witcher 2 by scraping my gpu against the wall for FPS )
- RAM: 8GB DDR3
- HDD: Since this is an iMac and I run windows, the drive is partitioned. Out 500GB, 297 goes to Windows 167 goes to OSX. I also have an external 500GB usb that I install most of my steam games on.
- Monitor: This is an all-in-one, but its a nice backlit-LED at 1920x1080.
I have composed what I believe can be made cheaper, a list of parts I think should work, located here.
This iMac is close to 3 years old, and I am not sure if it will hold out past 5. If you have insight and advice or want to help, comment please! If you have anything else you want to do such as provide personal advice or aid, you can PM me.
Thanks! - SkyeRanger
PS. I'd prefer not to do one of those kickstarter type things...becuase then that would seem desperate and greedy, and I am fully willing to work for it, as long as I can get the work.
