i recently posted a thread in the ToR forums to see if my Dell Server has any chance to be upgraded to a PC to play ToR with, and i was told to try it in this forum, even tho i had nice replys there too, for reference: mmo-champion.com/threads/1041868-Dell-Server-to-play-ToR-with
Im pretty much clueless about systems right now, the last time i build a PC, i bought a Geforce mx440 which had like 64mb...i think it was atleast 6 years ago?! The last time i ACTUALLY played a PC game...puh, was prolly around 4 years ago.
So im pretty clueless. I managed to get this Dell Server for free. This one:
The only difference is: it comes with the 4GB ram.
Now what is it you want:
Upgrade this computer - if possible
I want to use this to play SW:ToR and possibly Diablo3
I dont know what FPS i expect, what id like tho is not "lowest" settings...preferably med-high settings.
Id be using Windows, i dont know which yet... maybe Windows XP ?
How much you want to spend? Around 500€, the cheaper the better. Ive checked the "setup of the month" post and tried to find the parts listed there on ebay, so i would try to look for 2. hand ways to buy things, atleast parts of it.
I could put it together myself.
Im from Germany.
I wouldnt need a Harddrive, i got a few lying around here...mostly 80GBs but its enough for my needs.
Same goes for the CDrom drive. Probably got one lying around here, which should be enough.
So what could i use out of the server or what would have to buy - to make it to run SW:ToR on medium-high settings.
If using the Dell one, would cause more problems then building one from the scratch, i wouldnt mind screwing the Dell one and just try to build a solid one for gaming only, since i got a laptop to work on.
If someone could create me a spec, with common parts, i could try to gather all those parts around ebay or other 2. hand sources... (hard in germany tho ;p)
thank you for your help!
