Anyone know a cheap computer that will run Forsaken World with no lag and loads instances fairly good.

My current computer takes so long to load a instance that I usually get kicked out of every other instance.

I don't care if its in Low graphics either. I been having lag and slow gameplay this whole time and I it makes PvP nearly impossible... It is starting to bother me now.


anywhere from $100-300

If less then $100 thin sure but i don't think people sell them for less.

    Build your own for $300ish... Newegg.com

    Crazy simple, most parts only fit in one slot, so you can't **** up too bad.

    what Firebat said, or just go to a CVS or something and get a prepaid visa. there's got to be a independent computer shop in your town or something. there's like 3 in mine.

    I'm sorry dude, you won't find any relatively decent computer for 100 dollars.
    A Graphics card that could run this game on high would cost you about 100 dollars.
    A Graphics card that could run this game on low would cost you 40-50.

    If anything, find a PC that you would like and put it on layaway with payments over time. That's the best I could think of right now.

    Nice reading abilities... And knowledge.....

    The integrated graphics on my laptop can run this game smoothly with no lag.... Which fits his requirements. So... Yea....

    Can't tell if sarcastic.

    By computer, I would've assumed he meant PC, like, a Desktop.
    If he had stated laptop, then it would've been a totally different story.

    .... Wow you are dumb.

    Point is you dont need a dedicated graphics card to play with no lag.

    Laptop or desktop is irrelevant. My laptop has two 1gb graphics cards linked in SLI and i don't even bother using them for this game.

    EDIT: here, let me dumb it down for you. Game doesn't give two crabs about half of the parts in your computer. If his computer is less than 5 years old, he can probably get by with a $90 motherboard / CPU combo and reuse his RAM and hard drive. Oh look... Easy fix for lag free low settings PVP.

    Or... He can go to newegg and get a completed tower for $300 and have the same effect.

    Ask Aishleen how crappy of a computer you need to own at PvP.... Windows xp ftw

    What compelled you to comment back to me?
    *EDIT:I never stated you needed a dedicated card to play without lag, I never stated you needed a dedicated card in the FIRST place.*

    Also, I never asked about your laptop, NOR do I care, my PC is far superior anyway.

    I didn't ASK you for your laptop. Since you were over there boasting over how you don't play with lag, I had stated if you wanted to help the OP make a decision, then you'd post your model.

    I never asked YOU specificially, nor will I.

    Really, any modern computer can play this game... the engine is old and can run on any machine - granted, it runs like a jet-ski on gravel on even the best rigs, but it runs nontheless. It is also almost entirely CPU-based, so even a $600+ dual SLi will not make that much of a difference vs your average card designed for playing video files...

    You only need a semi-decent CPU to play this thing properly... the i3 on my laptop could manage to run this respectably on full settings and 1600x900 (in non-crowded areas) ... hell, even a sodding Celeron should be able to run this without any significant lag on low settings...



    Btw, just to inform you people: ain't nobody gonna mess with Firebat in these forums and make it out alive... Ain't nobody...

    Which gives an impression that a dedicated graphic card is requirement to meet the OP's needs, which is false. In fact, regardless whether OP is getting a laptop or a desktop (I also second Firebat's recommendation of building a custom PC from newegg due to costs), dedicated graphics card is not needed. Integrated graphics from the main processor works just as fine.

    Layaway? Really? That's throwing money away.

    I have never said "Hey Firebat, can you tell me about your laptop?"
    Yet, after about 4 posts, continue to misunderstand the fact that I never asked you specifically.

    You could find a duo-core processor with integrated graphics for about that price as well.

    Hey OP,

    Let me give some substantive info to why building a PC is cheaper.

    Given that integrated graphics with a modern day CPU works well for FW, I would definitely get a new CPU around the $50 range, such as this.
    (Not a product placement or endorsement)

    IF you know if your existing Desktop computer shell is compatible with this CPU (Also if the existing power supply is enough to power this component), you can replace the old CPU with the new CPU without buying another shell. Then, I would add some RAM (If you have less than 1GB of RAM). The information that I provided you is very vague, but check out some articles online regarding building a custom gaming PC, such as one from PC Mag.

    I recommend at least researching the "build your own pc" because first, it's definitely cheaper while maximizing quality of experience and second, you learn a LOT along the process.

    Once you read a couple of guides on build your own pc, I welcome you to compare the build your own cost with the layaway cost, and you can make your own conclusion.
