HI, I stumbled across this PC, and I thought you got quite a lot for your money. I know it would be cheaper to build my own. But I think this is a good deal none the less. Read More

Intel fans going make this go to absolute zero.

Looking at the parts, its OK, really depends on how good the case/psu are, the cpu wont set the world alight.

An OK budget gaming rig with a bit of room to upgrade later if the case/psu can handle it.

You might be able to beat the price by DIY, the RAM was on offer a few days ago, for just over £50 for 16GB slightly faster Ballistix, but it is pre O/C'ed.

It really depends what you want to do with it, the A series cpus have more cores, but the older cpus like this one have higher speed cores, and seem to O/C better.

Swap in an Intel CPU and motherboard, a decent graphics card, ddr4 memory, a decent PSU and a nicer case and it'll be a decent machine :{

Intel fans read benchmarks, that's what sets us apart from the nvidia crowd :P

Problem is both AMD and Intel cheat, you can find benchmarks that show each one better than the other.

They also work differently internally, AMD do a few things better than Intel; for raw speed and power, Intel win hands down, but the AMD chips tend to handle multi-threading better.

Some games seem to work better with AMD cpus as well, although mostly older ones. I hear a lot of complaints on LOTRO about the single thread game maxing out a core on high spec Intel i7 cpus, but on my ancient 6 core AMD, it has never gone above 90%, and after overclocking it by 10%, it maxes out at about 85%.
