Looking for a new desktop.
« on: March 26, 2021, 08:26:09 PM »
Hi  I am looking for a gaming desktop in the $1000 to 1200 range that will play the sims 3 and 4 on the highest settings I would  ideally love it to maybe have a bit higher than 8gb.

I have looked around but the specs needed and what is available really makes my head hurt trying to decide which is best. I also have looked around here with links already posted but most were already sold out. :(

Sorry about the long list. I found quite a few at Bestbuy that looked good enough to share.

The two that grab me are the Lenovo and HP Omen because they both have a good video card and hard drive space for Windows, other programs, games and a "data" drive that you can save your game-saves, mods, custom content, etc to.

And the Lenovo has 16GB memory :)

Hopefully this helps in deciding what to get for your new desktop. :)

That first one on both lists looks perfect just says not available for or in my location which you would guess with delivery I would still be able to get it.....odd. anyway the cyber power pc the 2nd one seems to be able for delivery in my area odd for me to ask since it is on your list but think that one will work.

Are you asking about this one?

CyberPowerPC - Gamer Master Gaming Desktop - AMD Ryzen 5 3600 - 8GB Memory - AMD Radeon RX 580 - 2TB HDD + 240GB SSD
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberpowerpc-gamer-master-gaming-desktop-amd-ryzen-5-3600-8gb-memory-amd-radeon-rx-580-2tb-hdd-240gb-ssd/6430867.p?skuId=6430867
Price: $849.99

If so, yep that one will work just fine for both games.

It does seem odd that the desktops on the list aren't available for delivery.

Yup that’s the one just ordered it then next month or so I will look into upping the ram seeing as in the Best Buy comments it’s mentioned and hopefully it will be perfect

Thank you so very much I would seriously be lost without your help and know how.

Good thinking!! I was going to suggest upping the ram if you had gotten any of the desktops that had 8GB of ram.

You're welcome!! Thanks for letting us help!! :)
