Computers and technology in general are important aspects of our lives. In a modern hustle-and-bustle world, humans can't keep track of every important thing in our day. That's why we have technology: to provide us with all the information we need in a quick and simple-to-understand way.
Unfortunately, when we need our technology to work for us, but we don't have thousands of dollars to upgrade it, it fucks up everything with its needlessly complicated troubleshooting. I am the not-so-proud owner of a Dell Dimension 4600. Well, owner isn't the word I should use. I found it when I moved into my apartment a few years ago. That should have raised a red flag in my head. This computer was such a piece of shit, the original owner wouldn't even take it with him.
But I was naive. So naive. Anyway, the computer worked surprisingly well for its age. I'm pretty sure this thing is from 2003 and it still works like a charm. For the most part. But recently I downloaded Team Fortress 2 since it was now free and I was too cheap to buy it years ago like everyone else. Anyway, after five hours of anticipation the download was complete. I clicked the 'Launch game' button and...
My graphics card doesn't meet the minimum requirements. That means I have to spend $30 - $50 to play a game that I wasn't planning on buying in the first place. But now that I got the game I figure it would be a waste of time if I DIDN'T buy the graphics card. Fuck you, Dell. Now I have to spend $50 to get killed by veterans that bought the game three years ago.
