okay, well here's the dealio.. my current frankenstein pc can't run ng.. my "good" pc and my xbox1 was stolen a while back... and so this beater is the only choice i got at the moment.. soo.
(before we begin: yes i know it's old... yes i know it's laughable.. ye i know lil bimmy has a better one.. don't care.. it's slowly went from "alright" to not goot because of ish.. as i have stated in the past, i am sacrificing and being a live in care taker for a vietnam vet at the end of his days.. all he wants to do is die at home.. and i will sacrifice for his freedom to do so, just as he sacrificed for mine.. why do i bring that up? because "bro.. get the new toshiba drawers shredder 5900.. it's power is over 10000000000- you're a pleb if you don't game on this" comments are not helpful and there is an internet full of it..
what i need to know is:
i believe it's the avx thing that's causing the issue.. (i think prolly more).. as i said, i am a newb and i'm not sure what that is or how to find it.. so.... what i'mma do is share this rat rod's ish.. and someone please tell me the cheapest route to get the game going.. i can upgrade parts later, but right now.. i ain't gamin and need the shortest amount of money spent to get in game... don't care if graphics are all turned all the way down.. i just wanna get mah game on..
(one last warning.. this is literally a hand me down frankenstein after my last got stolen.. yes.. i know.. i look at this thing and sigh daily, but... it's what i gotta deal with till situations change)
mobo: asus m5a99fx pro r2.0 (an3/am3+ chipset) cpu: amd athlon ii x4 620 ram 12 gb gpu: 2x amd radeon hd 8570 (mostly cuz i didn't get the chance to fool with it when it was relevantt)
now, as i said... i know it's shyt.. i know it needs replaced..
but.. a new commp is 1k plus.. i'll go xbox first and get pc later.. but.. i think i can skirt by with a cheap cpu upgrade.. but honestly i don't know AAAANYTHING about AAAANY of that.| in fact, it took forever to figure out that avx was likely the issue,, and i looked up stuffs and i think the fx series has that.. but ionno..
so.. yeah.. that's the deal yo... how can i cheaply turn this trash heap in to a bit better trash heap and get back in the game.. cheapest possible but will spend a liiitle bit more if the performance boost is important (atgain, i don't know any of this and i don't know what to do..)
that way i can go to my uncle and explain what parts i need and how much they will be so that he can buy them (he's not gonna have much of a problem.. but i will.. i've taken pride in refusing the pay and /or depositing it back into his account when i handle the bills.. so yeah|
i thank you in advance for your hardwork cuz i've been beating my head against the wall on trying to cross reference everything while learning about it.. so i know what ask is a bit of a big ask..
but.. i can't do this on my own..
please help me get back in the game.. it's literally the "what i do while providing 24 hr care that demands i stay close to a bed ridden vet." and i would like to get that routine back with as little guilt as possible because i hate asking him for moneys, even if i know he has no problem giving.. i guess the saying "you're not helping out of the goodness of your heart if you are expecting pay or compensation.. that is a business deal instead"..
