I think what I want is something that just meets the recommended specs except I think I would like 4 gb ram. Anything above that is going to be a waste. My plan now is to go to best buy and maybe some other stores Friday. If I don't find something , I may go with the $539 model unless someone knows of something cheaper/ closer to the specs.
Good luck with that. BestBuy has this thing called "overhead". You'll never find anything cheaper at BB than NewEgg or similar online retailers. Furthermore, you're haggling over 75 bucks here or there. The extra 75 bucks is because we're giving you models of PC's, with video cards that meet the requirements of the game.
But by all means, save the 75 bucks and buy a POS you'll have to turn the resolution and frame rates way down on to enjoy your Starcrack.
Thanks for wasting our time too. I'll remember next time you ask for advice, that you really don't want that at all. Like most women, you just want self assurance.
