Normally, this shouldn't be an issue... However I bought a USB 2.0 PCI express card, in hopes that would solve my issue... only that did... nothing.
So yeah, I believe it is time for a new PC anyway. I have been stuck on a dual core AMD for nearly 6 years now, and even with a new GPU my PC barely can handle games such as Skyrim on high settings, nor handle other games such as the newer Batman games on medium. (Not sure why, since I threw my new card into my GF's older Dell inspiron 530, and it can handle Skyrim without an issue)
The problem is, I am not able to just pull 1.5G's out of my ass. So the only way I can get a new PC is if I pay for it in monthly payments.
Is Dell my only option? I went to the websites for Gateway, HP, Acer, V3 Gaming PC and Origin PC as well, but when customizing a rig and "checking out", I did not see any option for monthly payments... Am I just blind?
I have a rig saved to a cart on dell.com, just in case it is my only option.
Here is the specs
PC model - XPS 8500
OS - Window's 7 Ultimate 64 bit
CPU - Intel® Core™ i7-3770
RAM - 12GB Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz
HDD - 1TB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive 6.0 Gb/s
GPU - AMD Radeon™ HD 7770 2GB GDDR5
Optical drive - Blu-ray Combo Drive (BD-R, DVD+/-RW)
It would cost me around $42USD a month, even with the 2 GB external I added on as an extra.
A setup like that should be able to run all my games on the highest settings, and mutitask without an issue (I'd believe). I just want to know if Dell really is my only option in my situation.
