Looking into a new desktop pc for multiboxing

Postby deryk » Wed Nov 30, 2016 7:17 am

Hello folks,

I stopped gaming for a few years and recently came back and started playing again. Right now I am playing on a Surface Pro 4 )i5, 8gb 256 gb hdd)on a dock station and running my bot on a SP2 they play fine, but are limited graphically with onboard video and sometimes alt tabbing back to browser back to game I get a black screen and have to reboot.

So looking at for xmas buying a new desktop...have a monitor so basic pc with a video card powerful enough for multi boxing. Any links and suggestions? Trying to keep it under $800.

thanks

I use a Surface Pro also. I found that windowed mode solved the issue with black screen.

Any modern system with a dedicated GPU (GeForce/Radeon) should run DAOC nicely.

If you're inclined, building your own is usually the best performance per dollar. Check out http://www.logicalincrements.com/ as a reasonable guide on price points. You'll also need peripherals (monitor, headset, keyboard, mouse etc) and a copy of Windows.

If you're not comfortable building your own, you can still use the guide to shop/compare for a pre-built system in your price range. Newegg and Amazon are generally good retailers.

Adding a keyboard and mouse, Windows 10, 1-2 monitors and an accompanying SSD will still be under your $800 budget.

I highly recommend Denerik's poster over an overpriced SurfacePro
