    Posted: 14 Apr 2012 at 10:29pm
I have a new DS computer about 3.5 shipping days from reaching me.  I no longer have to work for a living, but was an art dealer, and am buying this computer for about 50% working with art images and HD video clips. But the other 50% of computer use I figure will be with games. I have never played computer games since Myst.

What games should I consider?  I don't have the reflexes I had when I was younger, and suspect that fast reaction FPS games are not going to work well for me, no matter what the computer system with which I am working.  This may not even be the right forum for me. But if you can make suggestions, fine, and if not, then tell me which forum to go to.

My new rig is as follows:

Case:  Mountain Mods H2Go (wrinkle black clear windows with carrying handle)
Processor: Intel Core i7 3930K (Overclocked to 4.5 Ghz)
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme X79 (Features USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s)
System Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Corsair Vengeance

Power Supply: 1200W Corsair Pro Gold Series

Media Card Reader (internal)

Hard Drive Set 1: Operating System: 1x Corsair 240GB SSD Force GT SATA 6 Gb/s
Hard Drive Set 2: Multimedia\Data: 2x 600GB Western Digital VelociRaptor  Raid 0

Optical Drive 1: Blu-Ray & DVD Writer/Reader (12x BD-R) (Lite-On iHBS112)
Internet Access: High Speed Network Port

Video Card(s): 2x CrossFire Dual (ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB)
Integrated Motherboard Audio
Extreme Cooling: H20: Corsair H100 Liquid CPU Cooler (240mm Radiator) H20
Chassis Airflow: LED Performance Fans (Blue)

Internal Lighting: Internal Chassis Lighting System (Blue)
Windows OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (64-Bit Edition)
Office: Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student (Full Retail Box Packaging)
 


Monitor:  Eizo Foris FS 2332

Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K90 (Cherry MX Red Mechanical Switch Keys)
Mouse: Logitech G700 wireless
External Backup:  Seagate Black Armor 1Tb (
USB 2.0 or SATA 3Gb/s)


Thanks for any help,

Comet

You should also go over to:http://store.steampowered.com/

You will need to download Steam...located in the upper right of the screen. Based on the fact that you mention the game Myst you may like a game called Portal, and Portal 2.

Also check out half life and half life 2. All of those are on Steam.

Good Luck, and Let Us Know How It Goes.

Steam can get dangerous. I was bored and bought Bioshock Infinite the other day, $60 just gone right off the credit card! To Steam's credit, it does have amazing things going for it and as an older gentleman I do not have to go into a PFY store and feel out of place LOL

Although new Triple A titles are the same price as stores, you can probably keep yourself entertained for years just by buying whatever is on sale. They have Grand Theft Auto 4 on sale this weekend for $5. That's cheaper than going to the movies and you'll spend more than a couple hours playing it.

Since you haven't played a lot games in the past few years, and have an amazing looking computer I would recommend the following games:

Knights of the Old Republic (1) and (2) are on Steam for $10 each. Story is fantastic and gameplay is very fun.

I know you posted in the RPG forum, but I really enjoyed Assassin's Creed series for it's story and action.

Of course you will need to pick up The Elder Scrolls! I suggest playing through Oblivion first and then Skyrim. You can really crank up the details in Skyrim through mods to make it look gorgeous.

Enjoy your new DS rig!
