How much money do I need to aquire a Desktop WIndows 7 PC capable of playing Crysis 3 at maximum settings, because if it can play Crysis 3, it can play Battlefield 3, Far Cry 3, The Witcher 2, Arma 3, and possibly games that uses Unreal Engine 4.
(I am planning on getting my own desktop for next year)
1200-ish USD. It depends whether you really demand the extra RAM or the fancier mobo or not.
If you weren't asking for "highest settings" you could probably get away with under 700.
Since the last couple of posts mentioned them, does anyone build desktops with optical drives anymore? I don't think i have touched a PC DVD in years.
And just now i realize that i have had my laptop for two years and i have never, never once opened the disc tray.
Yes, DVD burners are still pretty damned convenient for data backup. Burned DVDs still play in a wide range of devices as well. I know you can install most Linux variants from USB now days, but can you install Windows that way? That would be another reason if not.
They're bloody cheap (20 bucks) and there's always space for them.
