What should i get if i just want to play those amazing rpgs like Planescape, Baulders Gates, Icewind Dales, Fallout1&2, Neverwinters... Not looking to run Arma2 at 60 fps here. I don't know jack about computers, but loved the old school d&d in the 80's. Any suggestions ?


Some ppl have told me get a netbook, some say, just get a cheap laptop...

An older P4 machine running XP will run all of those games just fine and they're a "dime a dozen" on craigslist. But to be honest the games you mentioned all run for me on Windows 7 64 bit (original disc versions too). If it was me, I would get the GOG versions (unless you already have the orignals).


Dosbox is the answer for the old d&d games from the 80's. But you'll need something better to run them. A late era P4 with hyperthreading is a good choice for dosbox. And you can find those machines for a $100 or less quite easily.
