Thanks. Gotcha Force is a criminally underrated game.

It was also because it was on an underrated system during its time. :*(

Thanks. Gotcha Force is a criminally underrated game. One of the best games on the Gamecube imo. 

 

I had more Gamecube games but during the early 360 days, I foolishly sold a lot of them (Custom Robo, Fire Emblem :hot: Luigi's Mansion, Zoids :hot:, etc). :( Thank god we kept Gotcha Force.

Felt the same way. Lucky found a CIB Fire Emblem for $12.50 at GS. Love the series since playing on the GBA. Picked up NES GBA SP edition and fire emblem when it was 1st released. Picked up Gotcha force at GS during the sale when GC games were being no longer carried at GS. Another game was Lord of The Ring Return of the King. Its not rare or anything, but man that game was cool back then.

It's a shame. Definitely wished Capcom did something with IP and made a sequel. Despite being awesome, the voice acting was horrendous and stupidly funny though. Looking at the reviews Gotcha Force got, I'm appalled at the ratings it got.

Yeah. Had I known how gaming would be right now, I would've kept everything.

 

I enjoyed The Two Towers and Return of the King games on Gamecube. For a licensed movie game, they were done very well.

Hi. Anyone know anything about desktop computers? Wonder if this is worth it. A Dell Precision T1650 desktop with the following specs

i7-3770 processor, ati hd4000 graphics, 8gb ram for $150. Its 2 years old I think. Would play some games like batman arkham city, Dishonored, etc. Games from 2013 and below on highest settings. Not sure about current games and think a upgraded graphics card may work? Is this worth it for the price?

Make sure to ask about the mobo too because that will also make a big difference depending on what you decide you want to do as far as future upgrades, and so on.

 

Is it a regular size mobo, or is it a mini or micro?  How many slots for memory?

 

A good mobo is always the best place to start with a decent system, especially if you're planning to upgrade it, so just get some details on that as well before you just look at all the other peripheral specs.

 

Also, what kind of a power supply is included with the unit?  You will need something better if you plan to replace the gfx card with something better, and that will figure into your eventual costs too.

 

Not sure if those specs were given, and you were just given us some basic ones, but if they weren't definitely look into them a bit more.

 

$150 is still kind of a lot to be honest if it doesn't have a good mobo, and power supply, because those thngs do add up.

Might be alright for the $150, if you're planning to just run minimal gaming on the system.

 

Does seem to lack some firepower from the gfx standpoint, so you may need to adjust some of the quality on those games to maximize the performance, and avoid fps issues.

 

The power supply does look like it will need to be replaced if you plan to upgrade to a better gfx card, as better ones typically need a minimum of 400W-450W, and you may need to add some fans to make sure it doesn't overheat easily.

 

If you just want something that's pre-built, and decently priced, this one will probably do for now, but if you plan on upgrading it, there will be some moving parts you'd want to replace along with the gfx card.  Won't be able to do huge upgrades though as it seems like the mobo is a bit dated, so if you get this now, you might be limited in your choices for major upgrades to the unit.

 

Okay unit for the price.

haven play pc games in a long time (star controller 2) mostly a console gamer. Just wanted to see how games would handle these specs.

Was debating on upgrading graphic card so can play some decent games like Bioshock, Batman arkham city, dishonored, skyrim, etc. I think most of the games release are from 2013 and below? Kinda want smooth and game looks better then ps3 and xbox 360. Dont know much about the 1080p 60fps thing (I know it make it look amazing with no lag)

 

Well, I see youtube and some able to play like battlefield 4 on med settings?

It's also going to depend on the size of your monitor too.

 

How big is your monitor currently?

Are you sure it's an ATI HD 4000 and not Intel HD 4000? The latter is integrated in that chip, meaning it doesn't have a graphics card.

 

As is, you're not going to run anything better than a console.

 

You -will- need to get a graphics card for that. Whether or not that case can accommodate one, I have no idea. But it probably can fit at least a smaller card like a GTX 950, which should be enough for your needs.

 

But that will require a better PSU, but a 430W should be more than enough.

 

Now you're looking at $350 for a 3 year old computer that can play old games at 1080p, but I'm not sure it'll run everything you listed at 60 fps. You should be able to run at high at 30-40 fps at least, which is better than console in that regard.

sorry mean the intel 4000 and is integrated. I knew about the graphic card needed, but didnt know about motherboards and power supply.

30-40 fps sounds fine since most xbox and ps3 games run on 720p at 30 fps? Wonder how far we can go with these techs like 4k and now nintendo working on VR applications. 1080p on tv looks good, now 4k is in and pretty sure looks amazing, but do we need it?

Unless you have a very large TV (65-70"), you probably don't need 4K. It looks great when you're close to it, but who realistically sits 2-3 feet from their TV?
