    Hello..
    I want to buy a new computer or update her one she has for a friend for her Christmas, but I am so lost and confused with the specs needed to run the game..
    She uses her computer to only play this one online game, and a little emailing..So I was not sure if upgrading her pc or buying a new one is cheaper..

    The game she likes to play is Forsaken World..It was running pretty good on her machine before but now it won't run at all..Yes it has been checked by a tech and no virus or anything, it is just too old to keep up with the game any more..Here is a link to the specs of her current pc and and the list of specs the game is asking for..
    CURRENT PC SPECS:
    PAGE 1
    https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&...ttid=0.1&disp=inline&realattid=f_gw6ppt0j0&zw

    PAGE 2
    https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&...ttid=0.2&disp=inline&realattid=f_gw6ppw2c1&zw

    It looks like you have several components that would need upgrading:
    CPU - although they say you can run on a P4, they clearly prefer something better, and the Celeron that you have is a low-end processor.
    Memory - per their specs, you should have at least another GB.
    Graphics Card - they are recommending a discrete graphics card.
    You don't say what your budget is, but adding all this together, along with the possibility of needing a new MB to support a faster processor, and I would say the best way to go here is with a new computer. Even a basic new model will run rings around what she has. The only catch is the graphics card - most basic models do not include one, so that will add a bit to your cost.

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply, I can afford around $500 and yeah I think a new pc would be best for her..Guess she will be finding a new pc under her tree :)
    What is a discreet graphics card any ways??
    Do you or any one have some links to some ideas of what kind of pc I might be looking for? I live in Canada in case that makes a difference.. thanks..

    I've had a lot of luck with Dells. Any day now I expect someone to accuse me of being a Dell plant on this site, I recommend them so often.
