The PC in the picture looks really old and I think it will only play NES games!!!!! XD...

I suppose that high system requirments will also be still around until...... super PC console that doesn't need new expensive graphics cards, perhaps.

Lol, it is definitely a 90's computer (early 90's probably)....

I can't tell what the image on the PC is? It is a website of some sort?

Looks sort of like an old version of Neoseeker (pre redesign), possibly on one of the 'releases' pages (not main page)....And at low resolution (icons on the top are huge). That's assuming it is Neoseeker though.

But yeah, would be nice to have a new generation where almost everyone can enjoy a new game, without having to empty their wallet every year, to upgrade...

I plan to get a new computer for gaming (and multimedia) soon, and it would be nice if it lasted a couple of years before needing an upgrade to play the best games....

Looks like a website. Is just a random image though.

You can totally do it tallteen, just have to look out for deals and investigate and stuff. Not sure if buying a rig is best -- I believe Ive been told by reliable sources its cheaper to build it yourself. Anyway computer places have sales all the time. There's probably always going to be a few games that you'll have trouble with or just cant play on max settings with for a long time (i.e. GTA IV, Crysis, etc), but thats okayy.

@Chaut - That is what I meant >_> I'm building it myself, for (hopefully) under $1650 Canadian after tax. Radeon HD 4870 is the card I'll probably get. It has great value, it seems. It plays Crysis at 1200 pixel high resolution with good F/ps (above 24fps I think it was). Of course, I need to make sure the rest of my rig can take advantage of it (no bottlenecking).

That's a Gateway 2000 Desktop with I think a 15" CRT monitor and external CD burner. My friend had that computer until 2003 lol.

@Chautemoc - Hullo? Crysis on high at good FPS? Yeah, I want to spend a good amount of money, so I get a good rig. Course, I'd prefer to NOT have to spend that much to get a good computer, but meh. I'm hoping that it'll last a couple of years before I feel the need to upgrade it. I could save money in the ong run this way.

I spent a grand and I have an intel quad core, 780i evga motherboard gtx260 core 216 and 4 gigs of pc1066 ram. Its real easy to build a powerful PC for cheap cheap money as long as you do your research. the grand price tag doesnt include everything else. (case, psu etc.)

I've got a 2.66 GHz Dual-Core AMD 64 Athlon X2, an Ati Radeon X1200 Series with shareable vRAM, reaching from 32 to 512, Windows Vista Home Premium...
I'm still hoping I can find playable games for my PC at times.
