Is this pc worth $130?
Im looking to purchase a computer to play games on but when it comes to computers, I dont know a thing about them. As you can probably tell by my name, Im a car guy so idk what I'm really looking at when I look at specs. I ran across this one on craigslist and I'm wondering if its actually worth the $130 obo asking price, heres what it has listed:
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz (2 CPUs)
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
USB Root Hub
Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158)
I really dont care about putting a game on all of the highest settings with no lag, I just want something cheap that will make the games playable. I have an older laptop at home that I do work on and surprisingly, it runs left 4 dead 1 and 2 as well as Batman Arkham Asylum decently but I recent bought Wolverine Origins and to put it nicely, the game isnt playable lol. Will this above setup play wolverine at a decent fps? Also how about NFS Shift? (Been dying to play that one but my girlfriend talked me into getting a Wii a while back instead of an Xbox...Again, Idc if its the most beautiful thing ever (i care more about gameplay over graphics) If it wont, can I upgrade it for cheap to be able to run them at playable rates? Finally, is that a fair price for this system? Thanks in advance guys, sorry, but Im a complete noob when it comes to computers...
