1721  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Mac or PC on: November 28, 2011, 11:27:32 PM

Quote from: rickfc on November 23, 2011, 04:38:29 PM

So, after having my current PC for about 5 years now, it looks like we will be upgrading on Black Friday. While a few months ago this wouldn't have been a question, I am now trying to decide whether I should get an iMac or a Dell tower. I have become a fan of the iMac form factor, OSX Lion, and working on it in general. That being said, I still run everything on a PC save a few iOS devices in my house, and I can get a much more powerful machine for $200 less.

27" iMac
  • 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
  • 4GB RAM
  • 1TB Serial ATA Drive



Just picked that same machine up last night, awesome!!!!
  • AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512MB GDDR5

Wife's education discount: $100
Black Friday discount: $101
Final Price: $1498

Dell XPS 830
  • Intel® Core™ i7-2600 processor
  • 12GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM
  • DELL UltraSharp™ U2412M 24" Monitor
  • Nvidia® Geforce® GT530 1GB
  • 1.5 TB Performance RAID 0

Price after discounts: $1299.99 (This does not include any Black Friday discounts should there be any)

So, apples to apples, I get much more machine going with a Dell, but I'm still torn. Thoughts?

Yeah you need to reconfigure the Dell if you want "apples to apples".  The 27" iMac monitor is absolutely fantastic as gellar mentioned, one of the biggest factors for me.  Of course you could just buy their monitor on its own but if you like iMac form factor I think it's a better deal this way.

This is the thing that sells it for me, though: you can always run Bootcamp on your iMac and you get the best of both worlds.  It's so easy to do these days.  Since I bought my iMac I've used it about 99% as a PC with absolutely no issues.  I run Skyrim on Ultra-High without a hiccup, and the fan doesn't even come on.

The other day for the first time in a long while I switched back to Mac mode and updated everything, I had almost forgotten it was a Mac lol.
What are the specs on your Mac?

Yeah torchlight is pretty friction awesome so

um... what exactly are you doing to that poor game?

If I told you, you would want to join in...
Seriously what a hell of a machine this is. Keep in mind my last pc was a 3ghz P4. with a gb of ram and a 64 Meg nvidia. So this 2.7 quad core with 4 gb
And a 512 card is a HUGE upgrade.

I really just wanted something different, most of
My gaming is ps3. So, this is just well, icing on the cake.

Only problem is, my wife might like it too much and want to share..slywink

Good to know. Yeah torchlight is pretty friction awesome so
Far. This iMac seems to be a beast so
Far. So far so good.

I'm obviously a fan if saying..."so far"...

The title says it all, I think I'm in love. Downloading torchlight as we speak and team
Fortress two. Any other gamers here that use their Mac for that purpose?

Btw, it seems like they are most likely going to address the ps3 lag and the texture issue on 360 with a patch in the next week or two from what I've read. Hope so, i wanna play more!
1729  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Heroes vs monsters! Ip on: November 21, 2011, 09:01:31 AM
Anyone else check this out yet? It's free for a few days still I believe. Absolutely good fun. It is a rpg with slick graphics. You can have up to 4 party members. All realtime goodness.
1730  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 on: October 25, 2011, 12:09:42 PM
Ps3 is on one disk. Awesome so far.
Harpua33 is my tag. Always on late..
1731  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So I finished some of my backlog... on: September 28, 2011, 07:07:57 AM
Not enough, but some... So after some trades etc I can get two new games for free. Dark souls, Rage or Dead Island. Dark souls and Rage are probably going to win this. That being said Dead
Island worth a peek on ps3?

I don't really NEED any games now as I'm still chipping away at my backlog... But I do have a addictive personality!

that's because playing games on a cell phone fucking sucks. I'm dumb founded any time someone says that's the future of gaming. No, it's not and for clearly obvious reasons that anyone with a small particle of a brain can see.

also, most of them are awful.

I thought it would be bad playing games on iPhone.... Key word is thought. Sure some games suck on a phone, but there alot that are incredible considering the platform. They are not equivalent to consoles or pcs but iPhone beats the hell outta psp or ds in SOME situations. I guess you don't like orgasms and cupcakes. (ok, that was funny to me and only me while intoxicated, but still accurate)
1734  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Does anyone here also have a backlog issue? on: September 14, 2011, 05:56:08 AM
Oh and "it's only 99 cents!" from the AppStore made it WAY worse... I could easily buy a new game
Everytime I play on the iPhone!

 eek I just picked up resistance 3, and Deus ex two wks before that & This is on my plate still....red dead redemption, deadspace2 and extraction w move, need for speed hp2, lbp2, la
Noire, mass effect 2, Infamous 2, castle crashers, Laura croft and the guardian of light, you don't know jack... And I'm sure a few more... Not to mention my iPhone,psp, and ds catalog... Um...and the worst part about it is that will double in 2 months....anyone else around here have this "issue"?
1740  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resistance 3 on: September 11, 2011, 05:03:18 AM
Ok, just picked this because... Well I wanted to... About to fire it up. Much like Deus ex, I skipped the sequel and grabbed the 3rd one. From what I've read they seemed to follow suit. You know, fixed the broken crap fro
Number 2;). Anyone wanna coop soon? I wanna prolly run through it alone first
But then some coop action is wanted. Btw, I am ALWAYS on late...
1741  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Deus Ex: Human Revolution on: September 04, 2011, 05:38:58 AM
I ended up reloading & doing that part over again & just walked thru the police
Dept. I am really enjoying this one.It Really does give you a huge sense if freedom. Once more bringing me back to the original;). Really amazing how much this is similar to the first game and not developed by any of
The same people...
1742  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Deus Ex: Human Revolution on: September 02, 2011, 05:58:15 AM
I don't know, but I'm a whore for stealth and hacking...or maybe just a whore Roll Eyes. What I love about the original game is found here. Always reminded me of system shock 2 and thief. Like a baby named
Shock thief...ok badly explanation. Anywho, anyone sneak into the police station and decide to reload the game and kiss that ex swat guys ass? Ug that 1st floor was a bitch...
1743  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Deus Ex: Human Revolution on: August 31, 2011, 02:50:30 AM
So, dlc? I'm confused as usual. Well, back to playing and having a cocktail!
1744  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Deus Ex: Human Revolution on: August 30, 2011, 06:10:11 AM
Okay Im about to boot this back up and play AGAIN, any ideas what that message is about yet? icon_wink
1745  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Deus Ex: Human Revolution on: August 29, 2011, 06:55:55 AM
I've never played a game that takes so long to accomplish some stuff...of course that's bc of my extremely slow/stealthy approach. Believe or not, that is not bitching.  I love that this game gets me immersed like that.Very few game have done this. De1, thief series & only a few more...
1746  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Deus Ex: Human Revolution on: August 28, 2011, 04:27:17 AM
So is anyone here talking about the game, not just nit picking the performance,save for hacking?!! nod

All joking aside, this game REALLY reminds me of the first one. I for some reason( prolly mediocre reviews)
Decided to skip the 2nd one. Which I am now going to pick up.

My point is, anyone else getting insta nostalgia from this game?
1747  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Deus Ex: Human Revolution on: August 26, 2011, 05:33:31 PM
How did I quote myself?!?  retard New to the iPhone I suppose..anywho, I sure if you timed it that would be the case,& maybe I'm getting less picky in my oldish age...but while I'm playing I never once (and I experiment alot) have been put off by the
Loading times, at all...

Quote from: Autistic Angel on August 25, 2011, 08:45:23 PM

I've heard from three unrelated people, all of whom are primarily console gamers, that the PC version is vastly superior to the console ports.  One said that after comparing all three, he'd rather not play it at all than be stuck with the 360/PS3 version.

Since you have them both, how would you compare them?

Really "being stuck with it"!?! Wow, spoiled...
That might be a stretch... I'm playing the ps3 version and while it may not be
The most impressive visuals or tech ever, it's MORE than serviceable. In fact, aside from a few quirks it's quite impressive. Choose to not play it on a console, but you'll be REALLY missing out...

1750  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crysis 2 on: April 01, 2011, 06:31:06 AM
Ok. I bought this lasy Wednesday. I haven"t removed it from my ps3 since...I thought the mp would be throw away'ish. I was WRONG. Both the campaign & the mp are stellar. Not perfect. But damn good.Off to play for a few more hrs before bed...or 5 more hrs...or so...

Title says it all. I was/am still pissed finger. But once I got the new one all setup I`m really happy with it. Anyone here grab one of those? It wasnt cheap obviously but I`m thrilled with it. The system makes VERY little noise. With 320gb compared to 60 I don`t see space being a issue @ all. So far move has really impressed me as well. I got a lemon & made lemonade;). nod

Wow, Just wow! The single player is actually decent and then some. Ive played Uncharted and uc2, heavy rain, mw and mw2 and many others. And for a game I bought for mp only. The SP is actually fun. Good setpieces etc. Fun stuff. And obviously the mp rocks!

1760  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Uncharted 2: Among Impressions Threads [Hide the spoilers well!] on: November 22, 2009, 06:50:40 AM
 Freaking fantastic game, both single player and multiplayer. The only reason I haven`t played in two weeks is modern warfare 2.... Still uc2 is EASILY my favorite single player game of the year if not GOTY all around for me.
