Defending the SF genre with terminal intensity
- Dec 7, 2011
Yeah, I'm just on the edge of being able to play it. I do have a SSD drive, but it's tiny (and basically just holds the operating system and Microsoft basics.) So I'm running it on HDD. I think I'm helped by the fact that I've got a lot of RAM - 24G - and my processor and graphics card were top notch in 2015-17 when I built this PC up! So I can play Starfield.Watched a video of Starfield (I noted that in said video, the bad guys were tagged as Raider Scum and I immediately thought of Fallout).
Looks very good but the tech specs are too high for my PC. I'd need a new processor, video card, more RAM and SSD ( I'm currently running on HDD). I'm afraid my days of buying (or even significantly upgrading) a computer just to run one game are long gone so I doubt if I'll get to play it anytime soon (unless my PC catches fire and I have to buy a new one...hmm, where's that insurance policy....).
I haven't scared myself with the price of getting a new PC that exceeds current specs (the only way to future proof your computer, get the best specs you can possibly get...) but I probably start to need looking, my DELL XPS 8700 is about 8 years old, which is geriatric for a PC.
