    You could whack a graphics card in it and take the RAM up to 8GB if you wanted to, that would make it a decent enough machine for gaming.

    Its a quad core 2.5ghz. As long as it has a PCI-E x16 slot, lets assume it does because what mobo nowadays doesnt?

    The only thing that it wouldnt be suitable for would be overclocking, but I dont even overclock my quad core with 8GB RAM, simply dont need to.

    i bought this pc but with a slightly slower quad core processor but with 1.5tb hard rives and 4gb ddr2 from tescos in the summer for £400 and i love it

    beware though mine came with an Nvidia geforce 8600gt graphics card and when that is in the HDMI slot that the motherboard has does not work at all

    to get the HDMI to work you need to remove the graphics card, but then the picture is massive and had no sound

    they will tell you that if you want to run a monitor & have the HDMI going to your big lcd tv like i did that its easy to do via the settings, nope thats a lie you cant so makes the HDMI port useless

    superb machine though apart from that

    Make sure it's got Win 7 64 bit before doing this - waste of money on a 32 bit OS.

    The MB HDMI port is part of the on-board graphics chipset, which is disabled if you fit a dedicated graphics card. The solution would be to fit a Radeon HD card with an HDMI slot or HDMI enabled DVI port. Probably need to upgrade the PSU too though.

    Similar to the one I bought my lad last Christmas, and it's been a great buy. Heat added.

    If you have one of the 10% off ebay vouchers slightly cheaper getting it off there ebay store, its same price but 10% off, then you have to upgrade to W7 which costs £10 so you are still £30 up

    You could...... but with Acer it voids the warranty I believe, although I haven't found too much to confirm whether it does or it doesn't.
    Anyone planning to do that might be wise to do their homework first though

    I think you will find Acer and all other companies still warranty the components the pc comes with but not the added components or peripherals the customer add........ :)

    AFAIK there was a ruling that if they sell it with a 'warranty void if removed' on a PC, then its not a PC. But that was yeeeeaaaaars ago and for some reason they never applied it to laptops.

    As for the graphics card. For our livingroom media centre I got a cheapo 1GB Raedon 4650 that doesnt require a 6 pin PSU. That means no need to upgrade the PSU because its not requiring anything additional. While not top of the range and bought to play HD and not games, it does the job perfectly and plays games. It goes into a 42" Toshiba and does the job @ 1080P. HD movies @ full HD. The only thing you really need to do is change icon + text + zoom sizes. It does play new games even if not at full quality for the newest cards, but can play at full quality for its capabilities.

    Looks like a cracking machine, I could see it playing games very easily without additional GFX cards (on low detail).

    It definitely does void the warranty - there's a seal over the side panels that, if broken, stuffs you up. I ignored it to fit a wireless card!

    No, you'll need to fit a card, or usb dongle to avoid breaking into the case.

    That is only the tower, keyboard and mouse - no monitor.

    No, you won't get a quad core with 4GB RAM, 750GB disk, DVD driter and Windows for anywhere close to £200.

    If you prove me wrong don't forget to post it here! :thumbsup:

    Its a PC, its meant to be upgraded, i very much doubt it would invalidate your warranty.

    Ive had sealed PC's before from Medion and Targa and they were fine about upgrades as were Dell which dont have void stickers, i did ask beforehand mind and none of them had a problem

    It is going to need a better GPU to run most modern games. Secondly the power supply unit will limit the choice of card and certainly coupled with additional overclocking. If its just a 300-350w unit which is most likely then you wont be able to fit anything faster than a radeon 4670 really

    How much would the card cost?

    Do any pc base unit have wireless in them straight out the box?

    I’d only buy Acer Inc. (Group’s) machine if cost of non-proprietary components + soft was lower.

    This group of companies (Acer, Gateway, Packard Bell, eMachines) has the worst reputation and highest cc (both MC & Visa) chargeback rate in the UK (pc-manufacturers).
