Built her an entry pc to try to get her into gaming....so far, no such luck...
Its a nice cheap build. Give her time, maybe something simple so she can grow confident to call herself a pc gamer. Maybe some rocket league or a simple shooter game like gears of war 4 on pc.
I would rather have someone who's starting out to play a very story driven, immersive game. Skyrim, Fallout, or something of the sort. They're more forgiving due to them being solely single player games.
Maybe have her play emulators to get her feet wet. A little reminisce never hurts. At the very least has one good little personal photo editor :)
Nice job man, would like to see some pics from inside the case.
This is a nice build, it helps me get an idea on what I'm going to make for my wife as well
you could have gotten her a core i5, so she can do other things than just game and not have to worry about cpu issues. But overall pretty good starter build
I agree when my son and I built his computer we opted for the 6100, it runs games just fine at 1080p. No reason to go higher if you are on a tight budget or in this case just trying to get someone into pc games it.
This makes post makes me happy I got the i3 6100.
True, I might take that into consideration next time. I actually did not think of that
What mouse and keyboard is that?
The best way to get her into gaming is to integrate her strengths into a game. Find what she's really good at, like, say she's good at puzzles and problem-solving. She would be very interested in portal. Maybe she's really into music, find games that center around music. So on and so forth. Like, for me, I'm a really action oriented person, I love being thrown into an environment and being left to my own devices. I also love puzzles, but I have a short attention span, so portal is difficult, still love the game!
But yeah, just find her strengths and find games that play off of her strengths.
Is thereasy any reason you went with the i3-6100 over the Pentium G4560? And the 750 Ti over the RX 460 or 1050 Ti? They are both cheaper or the same price and have better performance.
Oh sry I only looked at the post date. :)
Is 750 Ti still being sold? lol That's a nice card, tho.
I'm a girl, so if it counts for anything I'll give ya a recommendation for a game. The Mass Effect series is one of my faves, it has combat, you can create your own character, and you can shape the game into what you like when it comes to the story, the game is more than just a shoot and win you know, although u might lose her to garrus >.>' Also, you can buy her cute indie games like Stardew Valley, or Hollow Crown.
I'm thinking of building a PC similar to this one I wanted to know how good the GTX 750 TI works?
i dont believe in those, women and men play the same games...its jsut society that alters their minds into playing different games
this is all due to the fact how from the start out society has formed, out incestors from the start of mankind have put men into war instead of women...i dont agree with the point of men and men hugging, i hug men all the time and im not gay. Gaming is similar, i do agree that currently men do play more aggresive games but not all women are the same as men are. Some men like to play more calm simulator games. sssSniperwolf for example plays more shooting oreintated games. I think that it generally appllies that men play more aggresive games then women, but that is not true in all cases and we cannot assume that.
Yes i know but what are the external factors that have affected this, theres got to be something.
