aah thank you so much for your help! i’m basically looking for something affordable that can play games, though i’m fine with having to close most things while playing triple-A games or whatever. um. tbh I don’t know terribly much about computers. how much would I be spending for something with 8GB RAM and maybe 1TB storage? man i truly, truly do not know how to computers, oh god.
hi!! this can all be done.
let’s proceed UNDER THE CUT

Graham Nardone has confirmed that “we won’t have a 64 bit exe” for TS4.
This means that even if you have a computer with more than 4GB of memory (not hard drive space, but RAM), the game will only utilize up to 4.
Glad I invested in a $3,500 computer with 16GB of ram…
…eh, curved fences and breastfeeding is all I need anyway.
alright i just got home from my trip and i want to take this second to laugh at anyone buying a $3500 computer w/ 16 GB RAM alright
for real y’all if i hear a whispered word about any of you buying a $3500 machine that isnt a server, a programming workstation, or a renderbeast, i will fuckin beat you so hard it’ll make ripples in time that you’ll feel six months ago, and then again six months from now
but also lmao, any exe can be made large address aware, i will post a tutorial in giant refrigerator magnets if you don’t know how to do it, this is the biggest nonissue imaginable

here’s a quick ($1200) build i pulled together, with some addendums and caveats:
I…..will be saving this. You are wonderful, and I do have someone who is willing to build this for me (I just have to buy the parts) I mostly just wanted an informed opinion from someone who plays this game, and has a more similar perspective to mine so THANK YOU this helped me out so much!
no problem! i also pulled together this one so you could have a more budget-friendly AMD build list to compare with. the fx-9370 is a contender against any 4th gen i7 and it rolls in at about $100 cheaper, and the R9 270X is without a doubt the best card for the price. (though, with a warning that AMD lags behind when it comes to releasing drivers, and game developers will tend to optimize their games for nvidia cards unless AMD has specifically made a partnership with them.) this would be the better build if you don’t need as much of a workhorse, since it gives you some breathing room for extras like a bigger SSD or a case you like more, etc.
for a point of reference, i’m currently running an fx-9370 (which i’m enjoying and haven’t come close to maxing out with anything i do) and a gtx 760 (which i’d rather have something a little stronger going into the future, especially since we’re on the cusp of next-gen games that are going to start beating up GPUs and taking their lunch money, but is still working out fabulously for what i need it for). both handle rendering work well, though obviously not as well as a professional setup actually would.
good luck! i promise you will love whatever you build.

deathflowerdrops said: amazon.com/E-3lue-… This is the one I use. It’s really nice. It doesn’t have a lot of buttons but It’s lasted me almost a year now. Which is a long time for me.
i looked at that one while i was pawing through amazon and really appreciated that it had its working temperature range in its feature list. then i realized it would literally melt in my house.
pixelchemy said: It’s all about the Logitech G400! It fits my tiny girl hands comfortably and my boyfriend’s giant piano player hands, too.
the biggest downside with this one is that it just doesn’t have enough buttons for me! “but farfalle, all you do is internet and fart around on the sims, why would you need more than 8 programmable buttons?” BECAUSE REASONS
tripping-tides said: I laughing so hard right now xD it’s unbelievable how stereotyped those designs are! and yes, those logitech ones are not too bad, but I’m not spending 80€ :P there’s the logitech m500 though that’s not too bad and it’s only 30€!
i almost went with a logitech, but i wound up going with this one because:
1.) venus rhymes with penis
2.) 16,400 dpi is a big number so i’ll be able to say “YEP, i got a 16k dpi back at my workstation. i guess you could say it’s somethin’ of a gaming mouse." and then i tip my fedora and crush a handful of doritos into my face.
3.) one phrase: “The LED may be disabled as per your preference.”
4.) 18 month warranty for the day when i inevitably drop it in the toilet somehow
5.) Look At All These Fucking Buttons

tripping-tides said: So true! I’ve been looking for one for ages but can’t find one that suits my needs and is not glowing like a rainbow -.-‘
what you mean to tell me that you don’t enjoy the soft radioactive glow of
THE RAZER NAGA: GET IMBA FGT???
or the STEELSERIES SENSEI FNATIC? WRECK BAKA GAIJIN AND THEIR TERMINALLY GAY VOWELS EFFORTLESSLY WITH 82,000,000 DPI
what about the THERMALTAKE E-SPORTS THERON IN COMBAT WHITE? SHOW THOSE FILTHY CASUALS HOW A TRUE HARDCORE GAMER REALLY GAMES WITH A COLOR SPECIFICALLY ENGINEERED FOR COMBAT. WHITE POWER.
anyway logitech sells gaming mice that don’t glow like the dickens for people who aren’t hopeless manchildren, but they’re also $40 out of my price range

i think you mean so amazingly BUSTED AS FUCK
it’s phenomenal all the shit that’s gone wrong in this house, i’ve never had a legacy so insistently nonfunctional as this one
jazinga said: Coin toss, that. ;)
maybe i’ll make a little underground fight club and watch them brawl to the death for the title
simsinspring said: adopt
i mean there’s a third incredibly androgynous and mostly boring child who could be the tiebreaker, but it would water down the genetics if the legacy carries on with the genes of He Who Went Home, Rather Than Go Hard
i could adopt but i wonder how the social worker would handle it if i asked for her finest viking-child, baptized in the blood of the unbeliever
mothacupcake said: good luck, god bless you.
thank you, i need all the help i can get in these dark, troubled times
