I want to buy a new computer for video games. I'm not super knowledgeable about computers, but as a kid, I did build my own computers from parts in the 90s, so I have a basic understanding of case, power supply, mother board, graphics card, rams, drives both hard and floppy, etc. I don't know anything about new components, and I'm definitely leaning more towards the finished tower option, as opposed to the parts off New Egg. But I'm open to ideas.
I was considering this Dell XPS, since that's the kind I use at work:
Is there anything out there that would be a dramatically better machine? Am I missing anything, like maybe the graphics card isn't that great?
I'm going to play games with it, so I'm hoping for something that can at least handle all the current games. I'm hoping it will be able to run L4D3 when that comes out, but I know that's a lot to ask.
Any thoughts or comments?
