When is the time for a new gaming computer?

  • -1

 Do I need a new computer at all? Do I just want the latest greatest, or am I outgunned by those I play? Is it just wanting the latest greatest? I will need a new one every six months or so. My computer is an Alienware 18 laptop with an Intel I-Core 7 CPU and dual Nvidia GTX 770m graphic cards. I got in 2013 what they call a desktop replacement laptop. When I brought it, it was a monster to me. I had just put to bed by last computer a self-built desktop with a dual-core Intel CPU (2.2 G) and an AMD older top of the graphic card. It died, but it gave me excellent service and gameplay for four years, Before that two other with AMD CPUs (one core) and both Nvidia and AMD graphics. If you ever had a one core CPU computer, you know why my brand new 6-core CPU and dual graphic card laptop was a monster to me. The gameplay is still great and still fast as hell. In some games, the FPS is over 200 and the picture quality is fantastic, What makes me want a new computer?

You clearly want, but do not need. If your current machine is doing the job you need it to do, then wait a few more years before getting a new one. :)


That depends on the type of  games you like to play and whether or not those games are increasing hardware demands with each patch and update. There are many games on Gog.com, Epic, Origin, Uplay and Steam that can happily run on my 2011 HP Laptop and my 2003 Cicero PC with very little patching required. But what if you can't run Windows 10 or don't want it?

Linux has been making vast improvements to Wine and Play-On-Linux and Steam has even made some major improvements on its Linux Client that can install and successfully run far more PC games inside Linux. Personally, I love Mint Linux. Give it a try.

Unless you are playing an Online game where you are finding yourself ganked (they're probably cheating), don't worry about it.

Answer: No you DON'T need new Computer!!

Answer to your last question: Thing Between Your Legs! :)
 (Yes I know... I have same "problem")


the only time you need an upgrade is if the games you want demand it no reason to upgrade if you dont need it 


Definitely need a new one, time is money and the difference between lag and winning
