    What PC games do you recommend?

    I think the last games I played were Delta Force and Rainbow Six instead of studying during uni.

    So something similar, but a tad newer perhaps.

    No idea.

    Would guess it's just some sort of generic one.






    Upgrading to one of these would be no problem though, if people advise to.

    I really doubt you will be able to play any of the games listed here. You are running on board graphics and do not have a video card.

    I have a GTX 970 but you can go cheaper and still run most games just fine. See this chart;

    take the cover off the side of your box and take a photo of the motherboard -it will be written there

    you have a sandy bridge processor , so a r7 and a 120 or 250 gig samsung evo 850 and maybe another stick of ram will probably be more than enough

    Blimey balders, you should run the TD IT sub-forum for dummies like me (and Luigi ). I've played AC4 (Good!), got that the dodgy way via Torrent. Far Cry sounds interesting too- any ideas how to download that?

    A problem I have is that only about half the games I've filched on the net end up working for me. Pretty frustrating after you've done a 5-7 gig download- but the pirated disc's I bought through our local IT arcade in ubon were even more unreliable. Not inclined to pay the RRP, or travel to bangers for the privilege of doing so.

    You need to pay attention to the group that cracked the game. For example RELOADED, CODEX and SKIDROW are three main groups to look for.

    Second the game will not usually work out of the box. When you torrent the read the notes left by the uploader and follow the instructions. You almost always will have to copy files into the system folder on your C drive.

    Third you will need to block that game in your firewall so it can not phone home and bust the crack.

    Simple.

    ^ and read though the comments about the torrent

    ignore the whiny panties saying it does not work because they are stupid and look for the concise posts who will probably list the machine os and specs they ran it on

    Another bit of advise to aspiring PC gamers. Spend the money on peripherals. Buy a nice gaming mouse and keyboard. Also pick up the biggest monitor you can.

    PC's have the best graphics by far but you are just wasting that if you do not spend on the things outside of the case.

    Especially this. So many numpties also scream that the cracks are a virus. It is almost always a false positive. So the noobs should be ignored.

    I'll try downloading Farcry3- seems old enough to have a decent chance of success. Was pleasantly surprised AC4 worked actually.

    Cheers snub, good info. Never knew that about the Firewall. AC4 was Reloaded, worked fine- but downloaded another game called RUSE on Reloaded, didn't work. I have a feeling if I was more adept at this stuff, I'd be able to work it out.

    ^ Also AGB Golden team has some great repacks that are smaller and run out of the box.

    Just Cause 2 runs well on PC's without a lot of umph and it looks amazing.

    Try this;

    Kia Ora, Luigi bro!

    Best FPS is Battlefield 4 (in my humble opinion) must play online though (single player sucks balls).
    Skyrim is an exceptional RPG awesome with mods *as is game below
    must have GTA IV *GTA V out next month on PC (fingers crossed, been long delays)
    you guys won't know this one... operation dragon rising (or something like that) used to be my favorite game.
    Oh, download War Thunder, thank me later... it's free - it's an arcade simulator of WWll planes/tanks.. wicked game.

    My com specs:- aging quad core Q9550 circa 2010? E1 stepping (over-clocked to 3.6) but undervolted. Asus deluxe maximus?? mainboard
    4 gig of ram *I know I need more. AMD 7950. 850 watt corsair? power supply
    SSD for quicker start up, faster loading times, etc
    ...and a partridge in a pear tree! lol

    Enjoy your gaming mate, it's one of life's simple pleasures.
