I'll try to be brief...I'm new to the forum, happy to have a place to ask a question. I know very little about computers and gaming. I love the old games (Doom, Command and conquer, Warcraft, starcraft....). I have a mac right now and it can't practically run these games. I want a windows based computer that can. I always envied Alienware when i was younger, so that is what I want. 95% of the usage will be these older games, Microsoft word and excel, paying bills online and web surfing. I may one day decide to download and play a newer, more demanding game. I'll probably get an external monitor and mouse and all as well. I know that a new Alienware is probably overkill, but it's a childhood desire. I'm just afraid that I will pay thousands for a computer that isn't "compatible" with these games. I don't trust the 17 yo at bestbuy. Can someone give me some general direction? If you could just simply post a link and say " this will do everything you want." that would be greatly appreciated! I do also need a webcam as I have a zoom conference that I have to do in early october, but that is the only extracurricular outside of what I already mentioned. Thank you! in advance!
