    posted a message on Is there much hacking/modding on PC verison?

    Haven't encountered any hacks or mods personally, don't think it's possible, on PC. I played for a while on Xbox One as it gave me something I can play with the girlfriend, on the couch, right. I'll take a moment and say hot damn is the console version tight!


    Her friend decided to give her a few hacked items, like a ring with +10,000% damage, stupid shit like that, she went from Paragon 50 to Paragon 900 in an afternoon. I haven't played since, she's well aware she ruined it for me =/

    I just read that you wont "cheap out" . and you want to spend at least 600 bucks right(which you dont have)

    well in my oppinion 600 is still .. cheaping it out.

    any proper new gaming pc is at least 1200 ;) (just my humble oppinion)

    This is pretty much what I'd build, not including PSU, and I have the case already, including my local taxes. Just shy of $1400 CAD, which is $1931.50 DEM

    "Fine" is not enough, though =/ that's what I'm saying - these pre built systems will make do for 6-12 months, then be passed on to the the girlfriend once I build my new PC. I only mention the games I play regularly - I'd like to play Far Cry 4, GTA V (even though I have it on the One), that neat looking zombie game, etc. I'm fully aware that custom built > pre built, but I'm unable to find a retailer in Canada to finance parts, only full machines. Only two that I've found that have 0% interest for one year options, Dell (Alienware) and Futureshop/BestBuy, and that is literally my only option (unless I manage to solder the MOBO back into functionality, but even then, second shoe will drop eventually) apart from *NOT* having a computer for up to 6 months which is so far out of the question I can't even picture it.


    What I really need is opinions on those companies (either one) from those who have shopped there (or know somebody who has) negative or positive experience, doesn't matter, to give me an idea of who I'm getting into bed with.



    Pre built doesn't need to be horrible. The reviews on the ASUS G20 and the Alienware X51 (configured correctly) are mostly positive, and the markup is minimal from the individual parts. Yes, you end up paying about $200-$250 for the brand/case, but when my girlfriend gets it she'll be pretty excited about the color options and small form factor. Rock and a hard place, guys.

    So about $1k total. $250 cpu $150 mobo $100 ram and $100 wiggle room, GTX970 GPU. That's what I'd build, I have the parts picked out can link when I'm home, but the problem is financially with our expenses my pc won't make it long enough to that build.

    So I'd buy pre built for now, and when I build the diy one I'd pass the pre built on to the gf who doesn't need much.

    No replies on official forums, thought I'd try here c:


    My current PC is about 7 years old. I've done an admirable job of keeping it going, but the ports on the back are starting to rust (decay?) and the MOBO is acting up. It's old enough that if I were to replace the MOBO, I'd have to get a new CPU and RAM and I won't cheap out, so I'm looking at $600.


    My girlfriend just got a car, so we're tapped. my only option right now is go computerless until July (tax return some time before then, and $1-$3k bonus from profitsharing at work) or finance a PC. In Canada, my financing options are limited, but I've found two options and would appreciate community input:


    http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/asus-asus-rog-g20-gaming-pc-intel-core-i5-4460-1tb-hdd-8gb-ram-nvidia-gtx750-2gd5-windows-8-1-g20aj-ca006s/10322686.aspx (i54460, GTX750)


    Or Alienware X51 (i74790 or i54460 $150 difference, GTX760Ti) through Dell.


    Both options offer interest free for 12 months, and I can have it paid off in July so I'm not worried about it. What I am worried about, though, is A] GTX750 in the ASUS G20 not being able to run the games I play (D3, WoW, Sims 4, various MOBAs, SC2, etc) and B] Alienware in general, dealing with Dell if they screw something up billing-wise.


    For clarification I'm a build-it-yourself kind of guy so this will be my first prebuilt setup. Not nervous about it, kind of looking forward to a nice SFF system. What I'm truly curious about is if anybody has had experience with either of these systems and companies.

    posted a message on I am the real one and only to blame
    Quote from Ardikus

    Somehow I was able to almost completely forget about Diablo III for about 2 years, in 2009 and 2010 (probably from smoking entirely too much cannabis). Now I can't go one day without searching for some new tidbit of information about the game or playing the beta. I wish I could put it on hold in the back of my mind for a month or two so to stop stressing myself out.

    Yeaaaah I kind of lost interest for a long while there, the info released was too little and too long between. I've been lurking for the past few months again though, as excited as ever.

    I'd love you for a key. Just got fired because I was being sexually harassed for three months and decided to fight back.

    Looks like the Diablo PvP community is a minority in the eyes of Blizzard. What's next?
