I was originally a console gamer a year ago and just recently I've really gotten into steam. I used to only use it for TF2 on occasion but since I picked up BBT and CC in the Steam summer sale I've been hooked. Here's the thing - other games just don't run well on my laptop. I need a new rig. I've got no monies ( ) so I this is kind of a long term plan. I'm thinking about getting a job so I can save up on getting one, but before I do that I really need to just find out how much I'm going to spend and how it's going to work. All I know right now is this - 4GB of RAM is minimal, 1TB hard drive is recommended, and that Desktops are better then laptops. I also have got a list of all the parts I need: CPU RAM Graphics Card Hard Drive DVD drive Power supply Computer Case So, now what? I'm sure building the PC isn't going to be to much of a problem, I just need to know the parts I need. I'm hoping for around $500 dollars but I'm willing to go for a stretch of $1000. This is a longterm plan and I don't need a new rig now. (Also I don't think a DVD drive is needed as barely any games are physical copies for PC nowadays.) The only preferred specs I would want is 8GB of RAM and at least 1TB hard drive. I'm no computer expert really so I'm not sure about everything else. That's why I'm here. Oh teach me great members of The Behemoth, teach me the ways of the PC master race. NOTE: The thread title was a mistake. Supposed to be: Building A Gaming Rig (Help?)
So, I've had an idea for a 3D fantasy/adventure RPG, but I have never made a game, much less in 3D. I do have basic programming knowledge with C+, but would not mind learning something like Java if that would make my life easier. I also may do DigiPen this summer (a art and programming summer camp thing), but do not know for certain. I dunno, just a call for help from anyone knowledgeable out there. Anything is appreciated! EDIT: Size might be important to mention... I was thinking somewhere between Shadow of the Collossus and Solsteim from the Skyrim Dragonborn DLC. Yeah, that's a pretty big idea, but I'm not experienced. For all I know, that could be either massively difficult or saddenly easy!
