Found this online and thought i did not really know if it's that cheap but considering it will game it's not seeming bad at all.Bear in mind the storage is only 500gb though,it still seems good enough…

Work colleague purchased a Vibox pre-built system last year after I told him not to multiple times.
He finally saw sense and swapped out the PSU as he was getting low Voltage reports, swiftly followed by the GPU, MOBO and CPU. All he really has left is the crappy tower.
OP says "ooh but you can upgrade it" I didn't write that comment i am the op mate? I said
"Found this online and thought i did not really know if it's that cheap but considering it will game it's not seeming bad at all.Bear in mind the storage is only 500gb though,it still seems good enough to be a deal as this price is delivered to the uk mainland free of charge as well."
That's the dcescription of it and rightfully so i should say.I Would not pit it againgst my water cooled i7 965 with a hd7750 saphire card but for the money it ain't that bad you can judge for your self there is no rule against it.But on a tighter budget with the warranty and support i can't exactly bring my self to say it's not that cheaqp.I will say I am a computer technician my self i consider it pretty reasonable comparative to computer store prices.Remember you can buy on ebay/amazon but do you get replacement warranty with every seller i highly doubt it and direct warranty is sometimes not included in auction site sales.In other words i'd buy with confidence with a site like this apposed to worrying about after sales warranty with an auctioned item this is my opinion though on that subject.
I think you replied to the wrong comment dude. I mentioned a colleague purchased a Vibox last year and swapped parts out quickly. Did you mean to reply to the guy above my comment ?
Vvery sorry but yes i did mean to reply to him not you.
The worst part is i did tell it to reply to him it was replying to him and and somehow sent to your comment????
Favoritism :D
Don't woryy about favouritism i don't care about anything like that all i am doing is posting the post and hoping people appreciate it,on relation to your response just now it has nothing to do with favouritism but more to do with the comments responded to as a result of what you write in this section of the post,i could write negativity next to your 1st comment in here?
Dude did you think I was the other guy again lol ?
You accidentally replied to my comment and you said you were sure you clicked reply to someone else but you replied to me for some reason, therefore I said Favouritism.
As in you PC wanted to reply to me instead X) I think you need some sleep lol
If so I apologize but the reply is not sending it to the correct person again it's really starting to bug me.Sorry.I do not think that the system of reply on this page for me is working as should at the best of times it keeps sending comments to wrong user and i have to keep apologizing i will refrain from commenting further as not to cause issues and simply block any negative responses from here on as they are not worth the time of day to read all the way through,as half that are negative do not make sense in what they say any way lol.I do apologize.

Okay lets go through why this isn't a very good deal: 3.8GHz AMD FX-4300 4-Core CPU ~ very weak, main disappointment of the build. Will probably be beaten by a pentium anniversary
MSI 970A-G43 Motherboard ~ okay motherboard I'll give you that
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 1GB Graphics Card ~ was an okay graphics card some time ago, but now realistically only good for those games a few years old.
500GB Sata III Hard Drive ~ not much at all, can do the job I guess.
[AMD ONLY] 4GB Patriot 1600MHz DDR3 ~ not really enough ram, 6 or 8 would be better
Storm P27 Gaming Case w/ Blue Fan ~ eh looks okay I guess but not sure about how it will be for cooling etc
Vibox 500W 80Plus Certified PSU ~ op thinks this is a plus point?! No this is not. Who has ever heard of vibox, for a start. Also 500w will not really leave much room if you do want to upgrade graphics card in future, AMD cards for instance use a LOT of power
24x DVD-RW Optical Drive ~ can't really criticize
Overall you aren't really getting much for your money.OP says "ooh but you can upgrade it" yes but what's the point of buying something underpowered now if you'll need to upgrade very soon in the future? Realistically this computer represents a false economy, you should spend a little more and get a LOT more computer for your money. I mean look at this build of mine on pcpartpicker. Just a little bit more and you actually have a gaming pc that can play modern games at reasonable fps.
This is a £320 pc mate, perfect for kids for christmas!
Makes me a laugh on this website, people post genuine cheap pcs whos market isnt aimed at the "hardcore pc gamer", then you get all the know its pop up and bang on about how it aint got 3 titans sli and an i7.
( and yes before you jump on me, i bought an made gaming pc last year for around £700 and yes ive upgraded pretty much everything :D ) but then again im 29 years old, im sure a 13 year old wants to play minecraft wont have any interested in upgrading anything!¬
I love it when people come on and say this is **** and for a little bit more you can have this.. Little bit more invariably meaning double the price. Clowns LOL.

Btw perry, your build is ****, not even a K processor. Only costs a little bit more for that and the upgrade to a Z board...... Booyah X)
