Living at home with my parents (I know, get a damn job, I'm trying!) I'm a bit in a dilema. The issue is my computer died and I need something that can not only work for gaming for years to come, but also can last a good deal of time so that my parents could use the system after. Basically looking for a system that has strength now to game while being reliable enough that its unlikely to need any replacements over the year, specially components that might be much more costly to handle. The system itself can either be a company system or hand built. I have made my own PC in the past so putting another together shouldn't be a big problem, of course shying away from liquiding cooling.
Gaming wise, I'd ideally want it to be able to handle a game like Skyrim on higher settings, though it doesn't need to be ultra strong, so long as in 3 or so years its still able to run newer games without to much trouble (of course being possible to upgrade memory or graphics, though at that point it shouldn't really be needed). While my dad does occasionally play command and conquer games, I don't see him being to adament of it being so sparkly and running on max settings or anything of the sort later on.
TLDR: Gaming computer that will be able to play new games in the future on moderate settings, being reliable that it can last some amount of time. Through a company or built part by part. Thanks in advanced for input.
