My Alienware got bugs inside and Best buy wanted me to go get it cleaned. That was a wasted effort so a girl sold me $700 hp. She was trying to sell me these emachine priced computers. The new Alienware is like $2400. It has a integraded video card and is running at 99% while playing gal civ 4. Should I spend the $150 for a video card and void all warranties. The rest of its fine but the integraded video causes lag. For some reason my apartment has a major bug problem. also I wanted a pc I can take home and not mess with fedex or UPS. It does have windows11 16GB ram and an SSD.
$700 dollar computer with integrated card is not going to play this game well. Alienware are good for GC, I have two of them. Did you buy the HP at Best Buy? If so maybe you can upgrade through them.
