ty. Yea thats what I was looking for was preferences.
That way I could search a few but (generally) you find decent reviews on everything but now that I'm biased I'd be more likely to choose a previously named component over another in the case of stalemate reviews/prices etc.

EDIT: omg I thought I started a new thread through some miraculously malicious internet feature

but was just page 2

Hasta luego, bout to head home from work and the taxi driver doesn't go over 55 D:

Even a 400$ box could be sufficient for single client EVE with near-max graphic settings outside of large fleet engagements for at least 30 FPS, then add a single decent-ish FHD monitor for about 100$, and you're there with a quarter of your budget.

I run eve on a 450$ laptop, all settings high without anti-aliasing runs smoothly, and two accounts is playable with low settings.

I'm a relatively respectable citizen. Multiple felon perhaps, but certainly not dangerous.

Compared to building one for less, not really. And EVE are not really friends with OS X.

But I haven't even played with desktop specs in over 5 years.
Looking to buy/build a new gaming computer, I don't play anything aside from EVE and old dos games so it doesn't have to be supermegaultra huge.
My spending limit is going to be around $2000

tl;dr gimme your dream computers so I can live your dreams.

Been using laptops the last few years as well, and I am never getting a desktop again. The price and performance for laptops are really not that bad, and I got a nice 27" monitor and a nifty G19 keyboard connected to my laptop when I am at home anyways.

The only reason I see for using a desktop now a days is if you want to run a really really beefy machine, maybe add multiple monitors, or some sort of special custom contraption. As well as heat concerns but I find most new laptops deal with heat quite well actually.
