Hi, I can't seem to get any help with picking out a pc, so I thought I'd google computer forums and well, here I am, so here's the post I've been using to get help with.
Right now I have an intel E6550 core 2 duo 2.33ghz, 2gb ram, and an nvidia 8600gt.
I'm looking to buy a new pc, and I found one that seems to have good reviews all around, as well as good seperate reviews for its video card and processor, but there are other things that I know very little about and would like some input about (such as the power supply for example).
Anyway, here is the pc in question:
With my current rig, I can only run dragon age on low-medium settings, with anti aliasing and and frame buffering effects OFF. While running around I get a steady 30-45 fps, and in battle and in areas with lots of npcs, I get about 10-15fps. My CPU gets taken up 100%, and my gpu heats up to 81-84c (though my CPU stays at 51c, I recently cleaned it out, so its nice and quiet now)
I'm pretty sure it's a yes, but will the NEW rig run dragon age at a perfect frame rate on max settings? And if so, how long will the new rig last me before I need to upgrade. 2 years? 3?
Now, I've ALSO been picking up on a lot of bad info about Cyberpower PCs, people saying that the product shows up either broken, wires frayed, parts missing, etc. The PCs just plain don't work. When they try to contact customer support, it takes them two weeks to even RESPOND to you, and more often than not you don't get any help and you're stuck with the broken PC.
I don't know if all of this is an exaggeration or what, but I went to youtube and I couldn't find a single bad video review on these guys, only positive ones. The bad reviews came from google.
Before you ask, yes, I know that building my own system can save me money and a headache, but I don't know how to put the parts together and I don't want to run the risk of spending $1,400 and then winding up with a broken pc, or one that I don't know how to build.
Also, I live in Canada, so a lot of sites that are recommended for people does not apply to me.
Thanks in advance! So sick of this old clunker
