So yeah I've decided to go pretty extreme in cheaping out on a PC, I mean before this I've been using a 2008 sony vaio laptop for a very long time. So why not.  I was going to try and find the best bang for my buck, getting something at a cheap sale/refurb price for under $500 but I don't think I'm even going to bother with those very modest ambitions at this point. I mean there are some good deals with 8GB, i5's, etc, you could almost call starter gaming PCs, but I just don't have a lot of money and am not going to bother.

 

Getting the complete setup (w mouse keyboard, I already have a wifi) so I have access to something asap is the goal now.

 

 

should I go for the always common cheap newegg cyberpower, vulcan, etc. like this?

Or am I better off with saving a few bucks and buying any normal cheap computer they have there, maybe something like this Asus

gotcha, I'm really thinking its just best to do that as well.  I play a lot of indie games, old games that sometimes need a little better than a potato to run. I'm sure it will help.

 

Sure there's a couple out there I'd like to play that probably require a shiny new gaming machine, if just a budget one. Don't think its a good time to spend the money on those sort of things though.
