Alright.. So I'm sitting here on a very fixed budget and my computer died. Not just broke, but dead.. gone, shot, big pile of black melted plastic for a motherboard.
So, I'm trying to figure out where to go to purchase a new computer, but I can't afford a $400 brand new machine.
Keep in mind, my computers are only used as a middle spec'd gaming platform.. DDO is about all I run as far as games go.. and I usually keep all the graphic settings on low, with draw distances turned up. My video card is a 512mb PCI-E card.. works wonders, and is still in good shape, same with my sound card, just the motherboard/processer is shot in my old computer..
So, I'm pretty much looking for a cheap replacement.. I got piles upon piles of fans, heat sinks, cases, ect ect ect.. just need a cheap basic setup...
Anyone know where I could go to locate that? Or maybe an online outlet store that sells discontinued base systems?
It's been years since I've built my own system.. (about 6 to be honest).. and that computer finally gave up the ghost last week so I'm pretty much starting over as a computer builder..
