I used to play Dungeons & Dragons Online, but the game is pretty antiquated now...

The only games I really enjoy now are real-time strategy games, but those are few and far between. I still long for a new release of Command & Conquer. Guess I'll just stick with Transport Tycoon...

So I've been thinking about picking up a new desktop. Mostly for gaming, but also for general use. I've been using laptops for a long time now and sometimes I miss sitting at a proper desk with a full keyboard/mouse to do computing.

Anyway I've been out of the computer spec world for a long time now so could use a little advice. After spending a while searching various retailers I came across this Alienware pre-built system:
https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product...12321210.aspx?

- i7 8700
- 16GB 2666MHz RAM
- 1TB HDD with Intel optane booster
- GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

On sale right now with $500 off for $1499 CAD (About $1150 USD). Sale ends today however. Thoughts?

I am a real fan of games. I'm playing Splatoon, Pokémon Omega Ruby, Persona Q and Final Fantasy VII ( yes I still have the original PSOne game disk ). Sometimes play GTA from noplayalone.com resource. Great stuff.

Late to the reply here, but from my experience it's always cheaper to buy parts individually and assemble the desktop yourself. You'll save hundreds of dollars as well as learn a thing or two about computers while you're at it.


Check out Pick parts. Build your PC. Compare and share. - PCPartPicker and choose the System Builder tab.

You can use an interactive assembling process that breaks down exactly the components that are/aren't compatible with one another, and it'll also make it clear you're not forgetting anything. I still use it from time to time if I forget what's compatible with my 6 year old motherboard.

Been playing games on PC since 1991, when my dad got a desktop running Windows 3.1

Started out playing Wolfenstein 3d, Doom/Doom2, BioHazard, Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe, Jetfighter, Chuck Yeager's Air Combat, Commander Keen, etc.

Over the years I've developed more engrossing hobbies but I still make time here and there to play a game or two. Takes me about half a year to finish a game though due to my schedule/priorities.

Right now I spend 3 to 4 hour per night playing Red Dead Redemption 2 online on my XBOX ONE X( It's a console but technically it's a specialized PC).


I have played games since playing pac-man in an arcade.

RDR2 online is the best of the best. It is fun when we get our posse together and tame the wild west. It by far has the best graphics and story-line out there since Grand Theft Auto V.

The wife and I play alot of Clash of Clans on our tablets. It's pretty fun and non linear so you can stop anytime, which is good cause I work too damned much. CoC is a real time strategy game and kinda reminds me of StarCraft or the old original Warcraft a bit before they made it an MMORPG. Nothing like owning some noobs and taking their loot on the commercial break while Netflix and chillin.
