Lol, don't worry, I'm doing comedy outrage there.

I think my PC spec is better than the one you suggested (i5 vs i3, 6GB 1060 vs 3GB and mine has an SSD installed) but your monitor's better than mine.

Yeah, I just think its overkill for her use case. And a 1440p monitor will be more beneficial imo.

For running Guild Wards 2, for sure. It depends what else she wants to play though as Grim's requirement of 'things from Steam' could mean anything really. Also: future proofing.

Which is exactly what it is. Neither of you could be arsed to even click a link?

I did! That was the "joke".

The criteria have shifted, however. Now it's a PC, monitor, headset, KB+M, and speakers :roll:

They don't let you future-proof anymore.

There is this guy on youtube (who sounds a lot like Chinny) who likes to pair up old hardware with new and see how it performs.



Surprisingly good performance from a more than decade old cpu when paired with a modern GFX

Oh god

Keyboard: £4.97 http://www.ebuyer.com/202780-xenta-blac ... ut-kb-6106
Mouse: £5.98 http://www.ebuyer.com/544982-logitech-b ... 910-003357
Headset: £16.97 http://www.ebuyer.com/630114-element-ga ... -esab-90y1
Speakers: £30.99 http://www.ebuyer.com/222457-logitech-z ... 980-000447

Should still be within budget.

PC Gamer has done a write-up about how awesome the visuals are for this. It's really making my vagina skippy.

It looks pretty good, but It looks like you're playing a gorilla, gorillas don't behave like that, and it makes me sad when they are portrayed as violent creatures.
