What PC should I get for skyrim + mods?

#1SneakeySneaksPosted 11/30/2012 3:35:32 PM
My budget will be around $2,000 CAD, and I was wondering what I should get to run around 20-60 mods. I would be more comfortable if there was an option (like alienware, for one, has) to go on their website and customize one, instead of the intimidating task of literally "building" one as some of my friends have done.

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, if you can direct me to a better place to ask this (if available) I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Building one isn't all that bad, just look up some video tutorials and use common sense, if a part doesn't fit don't try to jam it in. It should be easy to pick out your parts.

Overall building one is your best bet. Alienware has quality computers but you'll pay more for the brand.

Build a custom one.

For that money you could build a terribly powerful computer if you shopped around for your parts, at least in the UK you could.

Just chuck a friend 50 bucks to build it for you.

Why are you asking on the 360 boards?

ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

Why don't you just ask them to help you?

Pro-tip: Don't blow more than $1000 on a custom PC. Regret will follow if you do.

This board is much more friendly than the PC board.

Those guys will tear people apart.
And some PC/Xbox users like me haunt these boards.

Online friends, I mean. I guess I could get some to possibly help, though.

Could you be any more specific?

You can find everything you need with a budget of $1000. Ask the PC boards.
