Dark Souls games destroy me. But I adore bullet hell shmups.

hey, i tried to post you this yesterday but the board failed and then the country failed and i lost track

so....

that looks HUUUUUUGE! i won't have 1/10th of what you've got

so-- do you have all your OS and program installs on the SSD, then data on the 3TB drive? or how does it work?

my SSD arrives today of all days (good time to immerse myself in unrealities) and i'm thinking 250GB should be plenty for a just-games partition (no office, no photos, no video edit, etc).

that rig is 100% for gaming. I've got the OS, drivers, and apps on the SSD, and then games get installed on the HDD. Honestly, 3TB is total overkill for me as I often uninstall stuff when I'm done with it and don't think I'll be re-visiting in the near future. Shrug.

strategy games aren't too graphics-heavy, and might have movies, but you're not doing a lot of 3D shit in them.

some other games mix action and strategy, like the TOTAL WAR series. there's a map where you play and then you enter battle and it gets heavy with 3D graphics in motion-- like-- armies & armies, each unit rendered individually, it's insane..

RPGs can scale up or down depending on your system-- you can get ultra-textured characters or splotchy graphics by altering the video settings

they all have their minimum requirements and are adjustable though.

if you have an old system you can buy old games CHEEP. like, rome total war is like 12 years old? and it's fucking fantastic. 10 bucks maybe?

i also still play civ2 sometimes. it's superfun and it was perfect in its way. civ3 changed the design that lasts through today, wasn't very good, got fixed in civ 4 which was great again, etc.

wait...

OS: Windows 7 64bit / 8.1 64bit / 10 64bit.
Processor: Intel Core i3 2.5 Ghz or AMD Phenom II 2.6 Ghz or greater.

Hard drive: 12 GB or more.
DVD-Rom: Required for disc-based installation.
Video card: 1 GB DirectX 11 Video Card (AMD 5570 or Nvidia 450

Civ6 system requirements are surprisingly low. I bet if you turn down all the graphic settings you'd run it fine w/o even having a GPU.

really shitty. I can't look 'em up now, but everything is generic as fuck. The only thing that isn't shitty is the stuff that doesn't really matter(SSD/HDD). Shitty AMD processor and an awful graphics card.

let me know your specs when you can. Like I said, I've got some spare parts. Maybe I could help you out a bit.

Yeah. I figured it doesn't need much if nothing too crazy is going on. I don't care too much for graphics(they're nice n all but....) so I'm not expecting anything visually amazing.

Thanks. Man. It's a real frankenstein I tell ya. I took an old PC from work and gutted the sucker. Picked up a few things to just let it run a few things and yeah.

word. I have like 7 or 8 of those in my basement. People tend to give me their old builds in exchange for helping them upgrade or fix stuff or whatever. So I always tend to have a bunch of extra un-needed parts.

I know I actually even have a few older GPU's around. Nothing amazing, but maybe better than you currently have.
