He ment the gpu in this MAC is not really designed for high end gaming, I thought it was obvious what he ment
He posted that before he even knew which model we were talking about so that obviously doesn't make sense. He also said "macs", plural.
You said that already. Post again if you want the last word.
Yeah but i've never seen a custom build MAC, they 99% of the time dont have high-end GPUs
Whereas you can build a top PC rig for €650-750 easily
Any of the new generation of iMacs can run modern games perfectly well at medium/high settings. Like I said, I have one of the lower end iMacs and I played Skyrim no problem. I'm not saying they're cost effective, but saying that old games on low settings are your only choice with a mac is clearly not true.
Using the Model Identifier and Serial Number it seems to be this machine. So an Intel E8235, 2GB RAM and a 256MB ATI Radeon HD 2600 card. Performance, unfortunately, won't be particularly good with new games cloud493.
That doesn't mean there aren't loads of other games to choose from however. If I were you I'd browse through Steam and keep an eye out for highly rated games which happen to be a bit older or don't look overly demanding visually, there's plenty of great deals to be had on some fantastic games. As for Starcraft, well the first one should run fine, the sequel not so much. You can get a demo of it via Battle.net though and give it a try.
You can build mac's they are called hackintosh's, also 650-750 isn't really a top end pc, I would say it is a mid range one, top end would be around 1000-1500 and enthusiast would be 1500 - infinity.
Bottom line Cloud, if you want to play PC games, then get yourself a decent PC.
thats with monitors and all though and probably the the new Radeon 7xxx series GPU
Sooooooooooooo lol at this.
Come to "building pc" forum on boards.ie, then post something taken out of the arse.
If we build pc for 1k eu then it is high end monster gamer ultra "you have too much money son" machine. Anything above 1k eu - you are mad bro.
600-800eu gets you a high end pc, which will play any game on 1080p.
As mentioned before, OPs machine is very old. No matter what brand it is.. Is it apple, pear, orange or rat box. Hardware is old, but you might try get some older games indeed.
If op really wants to start pc gaming, then he can build a new pc ( not mac ) , which is not that stupidly expencive these days.
surprised by your 'lol' at Limericks, not too sure whats so wrong about it.. note he says 'top end pc', not 'top end gaming' machine
I know a lad with an 8000e pc, for example
Ram is cheap as chips these days, so it's not an indicator of uber pc m8. 8gb ram is like 36eu. We put 8gb ram even in to med spec pcs. Pc gaming got to the point where gpu is doing most of the work. CPU is playing secondary role now and max you need ram for gaming pc - 4gb, but as mentioned before, ram is so cheap, it is a sin not to take 8gb, unless you going for budget gaming pc for 400eu.
Keyboard and mouse can be gotten for 20eu, most monitors have speakers built in or even if you use tv you get sound by hdmi cable too.
