This rig is terrible for the price - absolutely not worth the money. In general pre-built PCs should be avoided - either they are way overpriced, or the components aren't chosen properly, or both.

This is what I'd consider:

139,38 Intel Core i5 3350P Ivy Bridge Processor
http://www.scan.co.u...-dmi-69w-retail

136,54 MSI Overclocked Radeon HD 7850 OC AMD Graphics Card - 1GB Overclocked
http://www.scan.co.u...-plusfree-games

54,90 MSI B75A-G43 Intel B75 Socket 1155 Motherboard
http://www.scan.co.u...-dvi-d-hdmi-atx

48,66 Seagate 1TB SATA 3 Performance Hard Drive OEM ST1000DM003
http://www.scan.co.u...che-8ms-ncq-oem

28,08 Corsair Memory XMS3 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 9 XMP Dual Channel Desktop
http://www.scan.co.u...9-9-24-xmp-165v

47,10 XFX PRO550W P1-550S-XXB9 Power Supply (PSU) Core Edition
http://www.scan.co.u...v-quiet-fan-atx

14,98 LG GH24NS95 24x DVD Writer with M-DISC Support, SATA, Black, OEM
http://www.scan.co.u...-sata-black-oem

32,74 Coolermaster K-280 Mid Tower Tower Case No PSU
http://www.scan.co.u...ce-case-w-o-psu

69,70 Microsoft Windows 8 64bit DVD OEM WN7-00403 - The Most Popular Version
http://www.scan.co.u...ost-popular-one!

= 572,08

Much faster CPU and GPU, higher-end motherboard, proper power supply (the rig you choose probably comes equipped with some crappy "noname" PSU).

How about "Titan 8200i Spinosaur" Intel Core i5 2500K 3.40GHz @ 4.40GHz DDR3 Quad Core Gaming PC or "Titan 8700i Pulse" Intel Core i5 3570K 3.40GHz @ 4.40GHz DDR3 Ivybridge Gaming PC? The company is based in UK and they legit professionals.

The GPUs are too weak though. It's always better to buy each component on its own and assemble your build, this way you'll be getting the best value for your money.

What you can do, is talk to a local PC store, and ask them how much they will put together a PC for and install windows.

Usually be about $50, in Europe, maybe 30-60 Euros, you pick the parts out, once they all arrive, take them to the computer store and get them to assemble it.

Advantages of this are;
- Cheaper.
- You get the parts you want, not something that is "Close enough."
- You won't get a sh*tty no-name PSU that decides to explode/stop working/catch fire.

Or build it yourself, it's satisfying, and not that hard.

Yep, what they said above^
Building a pc is much cheaper and much much better.
You can chose the right without overpaying like 1000 euros.
In my country they sell the pc's with very good CPU but very very weak GPU and bad and no name PSU.
The cases also looks ridicolous and too fancy. It would differ atleast 900-1000 euros if I just build a pc
instead buying the sh*tty pre-build pc.

Okay so i looked around and i got from what you and my pc store manager said to me i haven't got the exact link's but this is what i've ordered:

AMD Radeon HD 7850 Graphics card 2GB

Gigabyte 970-DS3 motherboard

AMD FX 6300 Black edition CPU ( I could afford the 8120 edition but i saw the result's of an overclock which completely fries the system)

1 TB hard drive

Xigmatek Loki SDS963 fan

Window's 8 (64bit)

2 x 8GB Corsair 1600mhz Vengeance (2x4GB)

22x DVDRW DL S-ATA

Zalman Z9 Plus case

650W Corsair VS

This is all for 610 A bit over budget but i consulted with my friend's and they agreed i got a good deal.

But i know you guy's are the pro's so was it a good buy? :3

It's much more expensive than the rig I've posted and it has a weaker CPU. It has more RAM and VRAM, but that won't affect the performance, at least not now.

I don't understand why people come here for advice, then don't follow it and get ripped off haha.

The build is okay, But Yoyo's build would have been slightly better and you would have saved 40 Euros, it's not really a big deal though,

Was it 610 including postage?

yojo2 spec list is very good. i'm not keen on the radeon cards though. alternative nvidia card:

Geforce gtx 650ti [scan.co.uk]

Geforce gtx 650ti [amazon.co.uk]

its got some serious power. i've got this one at the moment.

GTX650Ti isn't the HD7850's competitor, it's more like HD7790. If anything, GTX650ti Boost could be an alternative to the HD7850 wink.gif
