How's this for a starter gaming pc? Never really done the pc gaming thing, san andreas, vice city and a couple other old ps2 era games. Will this run any current gen games.

Case: Cooler Master Centurion 534 + Plus
Processor: Intel Core2 6600 2.4GHz
Processor cache: 6MB
RAM memory size: 4GB
Hard drive capacity: 250GB
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5550 512MB
6 USB ports (2x front, 4x rear)

It's 225

It's old and out dated.
You'd barely be able to run BF3

For an Intel CPU you need at least an i5-2500. For graphics; from AMD/ATI at least a 5970 or nVidia GTX 560 Ti. Keep in mind that even these are starting to get old as well, but not quite out dated yet.
RAM at least 8GB, 4 can work but 8 will be better.
The rest doesn't matter too much; HDD, how many USB ports, the case.

The rig from the first post is far overpriced.

So I bought the one in my last post and it looks pretty nice, inside and out. Only problem is my tv doesn't pick up any signal when I link it with the VGA cable. It has a serial port for DVI, will I need to get a DVI - VGA cable or is there something else it could be?

You can get a DVI to HDMI cable, that is if your TV has HDMI. You'll get better quality that was too.

A good choice to start PC gaming, if you only spent a couple hundred pounds. Make sure to pick up Bully as well.

Soon enough you'll be tired of those games and want to advance to something a little better though, when that time comes, come here and we will help you.
