These days "gaming" is basicall just a meaningless word. At best it's a euphemism for overpriced, but most of the time it's as helpful as counting the number of flashing lights, os seeing words like "Pro" or "unlimited" in assessing a product's suitability for any particular use.

from the look of this build all you need after really is to buy a graphics card as this uses onboard

Same as that, would like to hear what some of the more knowledgeable members think of this?

Doesn't come with an operating system nor a graphics card, and I'd question the reliability of the unnamed psu.

It's not a bad deal for a basic setup if you don't want to build yourself. The PSU will probably be junk however, but spend £75 on a GPU and you've not got a bad little setup for around £300. You'd be looking at playing last gen games on medium/high. This gen games your be looking at low settings for high resolutions.
Also remember operating system if you haven't got one...

build your own this is is an APU system (don't get me wrong i think APUs are great and i have the 7850K) it wont have major oomph for high end graphics fidelity. But it will do just fine if you sacrifice enough settings wise.
Here's a link to get you started.

I thought the same thing, but had a look around last night and it seems that the A8 6600k with HD 8570D does an alright job on most games. Then maybe throw a GTX 660 into it when the wallet is looking a bit healthier, and you should have a capable midrange machine.

PS, Im mostly talking out of my **** here as Im a noob to Pc gaming so anyone feel free to correct me....

A better Graphics Card will make it a better Gaming PC.
#12
Just a standard pc, couldnt call it gaming really. But i reckon you could ajust a lower hhd and spend abit more on the graphic card to tune it up abit, the core n rams is fine. Ohh you need a OS, good luck :)

Everyone knows integrated graphics are in general poor for gaming. Sure they'll do an ok job but not really a gaming pc.

Agreed.

For the price can't really argue.. Go for a mid level card like gtx 650/660 or the amd equivilent

I probably should have removed the word Gaming from the title, I'm mainly looking for a snappy machine for the sub 250pound mark. Being able to play a few games when Im in the mood is just a bonus. Was looking at building my own for awhile, but there never seemed to be much of a saving for all the separate components.

I'm no expert but most folk will want an operating system so add on around £70 for windows. There is no wireless or bluetooth included or a usb 3 port.

Use your old operating system.

I'm aware of this, it's an integrated gpu thus not being a "gaming machine" in the terms that it will still need a graphics card to be a decent "gaming machine", but that's for your input.

Away from here, anywheres better tbh, no point bursting a gut when the people who should be, quite frankly, don't, so I'm not going to waste my time tbh, ill peruse the site the way others do and just watch it get worse on here (if that's at all possible).

As uchihasilver stated "a decent video card will help"

AMD recommends the use of graphics cards AMD Radeon HD 6570 or AMD Radeon HD 6670, if you're going to pair a discrete graphics card with it.

would this be suitable for streaming to twitch (360/ps3 720p-60)? processor does OK on passmark (over 4000) and the 8gb ram is enough - could anyone clarify please?
#27
Haven't read the previous comments but it's always better to build yourself especially if you're new to it, you will learn a few things on the way and it's real easy. Shop around for all you need and I bet you save :)
#28
Unless you gonna buy a Video card i do not think the on board stuff will be any good
#29
It's not an Intel CPU but still a pretty good spec, for games you'll need a decent Nvidia graphics card as this has on board graphics.
#30
Wouldn't buy this, would be difficult to upgrade due to any new GPU would most likely mean replacing the PSU and then that would set you back more money. This may be able to take a Gtx 750 as that doesn't need a power cable. But would probably save money and wait longer to buy/build something better.

A 5800k build last year cost me £300 so this would be hard to beat on price. Of course that build had a better PSU and case but your'd be fine with this if all you want is an office and web machine.
Obviously if you have gaming plans upgradability and your graphic card not being fried matters so self build.
#32
Better off buying an FX6300 CPU. No point buying an a8 if you're just going to chuck a radeon 270 or geforce 750 Ti in
#33
This a reasonable basic home light gaming PC.
You'll be surprised what an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) can manage if you're not playing anything too demanding at lower settings.
My main gripe is the PSU, it's probably some junker PSU that will cop out after a few months.
A decent buy if you're strapped for cash, have the means of installing your own OS and plan to upgrade it when you have some more money.

That's the whole point though. I don't buy a 2013 game (development cycle people - a game dated 2014 was not made in 2014) to turn the settings down so it just looks like a 2009 game. I want to run a PC where I can turn ALL the settings to max, no matter what the game is. That said though, for those who aren't looking for a gaming PC this is a good price - though I'm sure not a unique price for the spec. No mention of sound card either I'm guessing that too is integrated.

Operating system can be download for free of any torrent site. It's what most people do

True... but:
-why mention to it yourself on a forum tied to your email address, most likely tied to your address, bank details, etc?
-it's illegal, why promote it?
-what if they get caught and they end up in prison because of you?
-they may not know what they're doing and download some dodgy cracked-up malware-ridden version.
-if everyone did this Microsoft wouldn't make Windows anymore.

I went legit on Windows 7 - far too many hoops to jump through on a torrent copy. Couldn't be bothered. It's just easier to go legit these days. And it was a ton cheaper than Vista on it's release.

The integrated graphics on this APU are not as bad as you may think, I used motherboard integrated graphics a couple of years ago and at the time it could run all games I tried quite well at lowest settings.
This is aimed at pc gamers who are on a budget, people who don't care about AA, 3d, 1080p, or other settings; they just want to run the game and that's fine for them. Sure it's great to be able to run a game at max or medium settings but some people play for gameplay and not the eye candy.
