Okay here it is - I want a pc that is designed to do one thing and one thing only - play LoTR Battle for Middle Earth. I'm not sure where to buy the game or what the recommended specs are or any of that but I want it so bad - so much nostalgia! I am planning to build it and share it with my dad who would always play with me too

Nice! this looks pretty solid to me! Is there anything even older as fat as cpu + gpu goes that would be cheaper? This game is like 10 years old so I think I could save a few bucks their too. Also - do you know if you can buy windows XP anymore or where I would be able to buy it?

Yeah I legit only want to play this game hahaha just for the sake of nostalgia. I heard that a lot of people had issues with Windows 10. Would it be easier to get something with XP or Windows 7 on it instead?
