Really enjoyed this until the last fight ... utter nonsense ...
Couldn't agree more.

iwo
This ran terribly on my AMD rig, tried everything. Horribly unoptimised port.
Struggled on my rig as well even with a GTX 1070 horrible port.

Worth a tenner not a penny more.

With scaling off, Quantum Break is the most demanding PC game bar none. With it turned on it runs way faster, but obviously you trade off image quality.

I thought this game would be well under a tenner by now.
What's the game like though? Is it worth this price?

J2850 is that J for Junk?
oooh that is a poor processor
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Pentium+J2850+%40+2.41GHz

1817 cpu benchmark...that's a core2duo? weaker than i3 and much weaker than i5.

I'd probably get a refurb i5 from ebay (I got a refurb xeon workstation for £160 last year which has around 5000 cpu passmark) but I guess this has a decent upgrade path.
Seems a strange thing for Medion to be selling. Are they owned by Lenovo now?
Is it B grade because of Windows 8? :D
I don't think this is a deal we used to sell these new for not much more couple years ago and even then they felt slow, better of buying a 2nd hand i3 or i5 for that amount of money.

Note: controller is highly recommended for this game, I don't have one and had to give up on the game.
Bastion has a demo, so you can try it before you buy it (I liked it). This is nearly (10p off?) an all-time low price.

TotalBiscuit likes it: WTF Is... - Bastion ?

Bastion Metacritic: 86% (17 critics, 8.6 from 1381 users), Steam: Overwhelmingly Positive 97% (15768 reviews)
Wonderful game and soundtrack - worth every penny
Got this in a Humble Bundle and didn't pay any attention to it until at least a year later. Decided to try it and loved it. I think i finished the game in two days.
Amazing soundtrack. One of the best you will hear.

To me this looks like a good deal. Main game and season pass.

Are people voting cold because its a bad game or is it the fact people think it's just the season pass?

I want to pull the trigger and buy as it looks ok but did anyone play the beta and can confirm this is a poor game?

is this for the game and season pass or just season pass?

lol i knew it would be cold people would give it heat if it was a samsung s8 going for 1,000,000,000 but cold for a game that only costs loose change typical
More likely because you are moaning that your deal is gone cold,that more people will vote cold. Happens all the time , really can't understand why people get upset if a deal goes cold, just move on life's too short.

lol im not moaning...im just saying there is a lot of people out there that do this just cuz its not on their platform...if this was a deal on the ps4 then it wouldv been 495 degrees already

I had the ql560 for about 4 years which worked fine until it gave up. The ql570 I have for just over a year and is basically the same, only issue for hard users will be is I don't think the blade is changeable like the 560 once it gets dull. If for business use like me it's better to get the bigger more expensive Machines. My current zebra printer allows me to print dhl labels
If any one has a. Costco card they have £26 for as far. Back as I can remember . Labels are no cheap but ok for household use now and again. If your using regularly then opt for more expensive commercial on around £150 then at least you can buy the bulk labels roll cheap.

Labels rolls are free if you have a FedEx or uk mail account . Business users

Also business users get a free label printer when they sign up for business account .

Trade Secrets revealed
"Prints 3.5 mm & 6 mm labels". Aww, sooo tiny.
I bought one of the old versions of these. They would be really useful if you could actually control them via bluetooth or even better Apple Print.
You may know, receipt printers are prohibitively expensive (£400+) so for hobbyists like me who have a Payleven reader (or sum up or whatever it's changed to) it's not compatible.

Something like this would be ideal, but I can't do anything but print stickers from my laptop.
can't speak for the Brother but I have had the Dymo one for around 6 months and it really does do the trick, only negative was the label setup, was a bit hit and miss as the orientation on the screen did not match what comes out on the label. Got there in the end though....

Do CDKEYS sell illegitimate keys?
Godlikezebra
[quote=commenter14]Disabled by the developers? that isnt possible with CDKEYS but ok
CD Keys take keys from cheaper international markets and then resell them. Whilst it's unlikely that they would be deactivated, it is still a possibility. Saying "that isn't possible" is ridiculous, any developer can disable any key at any time for any reason.

Any record of this ever happening with CD-Keys? I can't find any ...

As per your point "any developer can disable any key at any time for any reason." - I fully agree. Whether bought from the right region or not, all you are doing is buying a license to play the game not the game itself.

Vilifying CDKeys seems a bit strange with no record of it happening ... G2A on the other hand ...

If the recent trend continues it'll be on sale in a few weeks.
I think this is a deal for £12.49 8) Considering most remastered games cost between £20 and £30!

73 Metascore and 7.8 User Score is good. It is a well loved classic for the original Xbox, reason why they have remastered it. It is not going to win any game of the year awards but it is fondly remembered.
What's the deal?
Is this the rrp or is there a saving cause if it's rrp then not a deal :/

Hoping EA give the Battlefront 1 map packs away for free in the summer, like they did with the Battlefield 4 map packs when Battlefield 1 was getting closer to release..
Typical. Soon as the easter code comes down the new Star Wars game goes up.

Ordered. Cdkeys keys swam to sell the pre order dlc for ea game for 99p closer to the time which is nice seeing how your making a saving off the main game.

Edited By: chumpyman on Apr 18, 2017 21:46: Typo
The old BF2 is a great game I still dip into. Was not a fan of the new Battlefronts which looked gorgeous but not a lot of substance to it.
GAME have the preorder up for the physical copy on console... for a measly £59.99 it can all be yours. £60 for what they call the 'standard' edition... seriously!?
I thought the first game was absolute garbage. I struggled on for an hour, but I was bored within 10 minutes.
And I only paid £1.00 on Amazon due to the published misprice on here......It certainly was not worth £2.00!! Yet they were asking >£30, ludicrous.

Hot for the deal though.

Zoso cdkeys has never sold Xbox accounts so you are obviously just trolling. I've been using cdkeys for years without any issues, also they have provided sources in the past to prove where their keys have been purchased. I've pre-ordered from them many times and had no issues cancelling preorders, I would say they have very good customer service. You are missing out by not purchasing from them considering the obvious saving you would make.

Don't pre-order, don't buy from the grey market. Cold.
agreed, may as well pirate, it's completely immoral
Sorry, I liked this by mistake. How is buying a grey market key immoral? As long as it's not stolen then the publisher is still being paid. In fact it is arguably far less immoral than buying a used copy of a console game from the high street, Ebay or Amazon or lending a game from a friend.
yeah you keep telling yourself that.....everyone knows how they obtain their keys, that's why they are banned on here. Grey imports rob the publisher of profit FACT
They also used to sell xbox accounts, which is a direct violation of MS user policy.
I wouldn't touch cdkeys with a bargepole, I go through legitimate retailers for my games (Steam etc) and ensure the publisher gets every penny they rightfully earned.
Take a minute and look at what you just wrote.
......................................
Give up?
They're not banned on here. If they were banned on here then this thread wouldn't exist. And I think you'll find that most publishers don't earn a damn thing unless you consider money spent on marketing, YouTuber sponsorship and lavish press parties to be cash well spent. The publisher are mostly just the money men and the bridge between the developer and retail. I'm not entirely sure that CDKeys have ever actually sold Xbox accounts either.
dude, trust me they sold xbox accounts, as I unwittingly purchased one not realising it was an account, I thought it was a key (and the price was similar to other retailers for a key which was even more confusing)....then cdkeys refused to give money back when I called them out on it.
I love how 'experts' like you think you understand the financial working of software / developer houses. Well you don't buddy, you are not privy to their financial statements, strategies or management of their business.
The internet is full of 'experts' who flippantly explain away malpractice to convince themselves and everybody else that what they are doing is not immoral.
Grey imports steal profits from companies, that is an absolute irrefutable published and documented fact, and your ostentatious display of vulgarity on the subject wont change that fact!
I will never purchase anything from cdkeys, and I know lots of other people who don't either for the same reason, so don't lecture me. If you want to buy from them, good luck to you, but unless you can put some proof on here they they are not siphoning profits from developers I am not interested, pal.

I find it ironic that you're dissing internet "experts" who flippantly offer their views, and then you go on to do precisely that yourself.

You bought an Xbox account from CDKeys? Well normally I would take your word for it but since you're kind of being a jerk about this, I want proof or it didn't happen. I have been using them and following them on social media for years and I've never seen them market accounts. Not once.
You haven't tackled my original question either. Ignoring scam artists like PSN account websites, G2A etc, how is using a grey key seller any worse than buying a used game or lending one from a friend?
There are trustworthy key sellers who are considered 'grey' and the only reason why they are considered grey is because they don't sign into the same local RRP agreements that the likes of Amazon, Green Man Gaming etc do. Nuuvem for example were told they would be stripped of their trusted status if they didn't take every measure possible to restrict their products from Europeans and Americans. What you're doing here is really just standing up for huge corporations at the detriment of your own wallet.
what we have here is a mexican stand off, you have you;re opinion, and I have mine......I can't prove re account, I don't have access to it anymore, but I purchased like 3 years ago. Maybe, they realised they shouldn't be doing it themselves, so stopped, but they were 100% selling xbox live accounts marketed as games......
I don't think the loan to friend thing really stacks up, it is not apples V apples, it is coming up with a side argument tio support another. I loan a friend a game I purchased to a friend, I still purchased it and gave the company my money.
The RRP agreements are there for a reason, you can't talk about profit motive and then ignore cdkeys from that statement. Why do you think they exist, to make you happy, or to make money? They don't make money following accepted fair process as followed by other retailers, that have to sell higher to retain margin and ensure developers get their margins.
There is no way that cdkeys are passing fair margin back to the publishers.......that is where I think it is immoral, because I think these guys work hard and deserve their rewards. If I buy a game from amazon X% goes to publisher, if I buy one from cdkeys it doesn't......

CDKeys source a lot of their games from this country. They buy in bulk like the major retailers do but don't sign into the RRP and NDA contracts that the bigger companies do. I know that because they used to post pictures of their deliveries on Facebook and Twitter.

The developer will get the same regardless. Contracts for development employees are usually salary paid (the games industry doesn't work like Hollywood just yet) and there's occasionally a small commission involved but most employees don't even get that. Only a few of the top level staff usually do.

In most cases the majority of profit goes to the publisher and investors because they're the ones who paid the salaries and took the risk on the game's development. I actually know a few full-time game developers who buy their games from the likes of MMOGA and CDKeys because they want to play the latest titles but need to watch the bank balance in the same way that everyone else does.

Don't pre-order, don't buy from the grey market. Cold.
agreed, may as well pirate, it's completely immoral
Sorry, I liked this by mistake. How is buying a grey market key immoral? As long as it's not stolen then the publisher is still being paid. In fact it is arguably far less immoral than buying a used copy of a console game from the high street, Ebay or Amazon or lending a game from a friend.
yeah you keep telling yourself that.....everyone knows how they obtain their keys, that's why they are banned on here. Grey imports rob the publisher of profit FACT
They also used to sell xbox accounts, which is a direct violation of MS user policy.
I wouldn't touch cdkeys with a bargepole, I go through legitimate retailers for my games (Steam etc) and ensure the publisher gets every penny they rightfully earned.
Take a minute and look at what you just wrote.
......................................
Give up?
They're not banned on here. If they were banned on here then this thread wouldn't exist. And I think you'll find that most publishers don't earn a damn thing unless you consider money spent on marketing, YouTuber sponsorship and lavish press parties to be cash well spent. The publisher are mostly just the money men and the bridge between the developer and retail. I'm not entirely sure that CDKeys have ever actually sold Xbox accounts either.
dude, trust me they sold xbox accounts, as I unwittingly purchased one not realising it was an account, I thought it was a key (and the price was similar to other retailers for a key which was even more confusing)....then cdkeys refused to give money back when I called them out on it.
I love how 'experts' like you think you understand the financial working of software / developer houses. Well you don't buddy, you are not privy to their financial statements, strategies or management of their business.
The internet is full of 'experts' who flippantly explain away malpractice to convince themselves and everybody else that what they are doing is not immoral.
Grey imports steal profits from companies, that is an absolute irrefutable published and documented fact, and your ostentatious display of vulgarity on the subject wont change that fact!
I will never purchase anything from cdkeys, and I know lots of other people who don't either for the same reason, so don't lecture me. If you want to buy from them, good luck to you, but unless you can put some proof on here they they are not siphoning profits from developers I am not interested, pal.
You bought an Xbox account from CDKeys? Well normally I would take your word for it but since you're kind of being a jerk about this, I want proof or it didn't happen. I have been using them and following them on social media for years and I've never seen them market accounts. Not once.
You haven't tackled my original question either. Ignoring scam artists like PSN account websites, G2A etc, how is using a grey key seller any worse than buying a used game or lending one from a friend?
There are trustworthy key sellers who are considered 'grey' and the only reason why they are considered grey is because they don't sign into the same local RRP agreements that the likes of Amazon, Green Man Gaming etc do. Nuuvem for example were told they would be stripped of their trusted status if they didn't take every measure possible to restrict their products from Europeans and Americans. What you're doing here is really just standing up for huge corporations at the detriment of your own wallet.
what we have here is a mexican stand off, you have you;re opinion, and I have mine......I can't prove re account, I don't have access to it anymore, but I purchased like 3 years ago. Maybe, they realised they shouldn't be doing it themselves, so stopped, but they were 100% selling xbox live accounts marketed as games......

Will play on pc for higher resolution and less input lag, probably a better online connection as well. With the likes of discord you're always going to be able to a game, even for more niche fighting games titles on pc.
The bigger player base will be on console though (and dare I say better players) so more likely to get opponents with decent ping and less likely to come across hackers with autoblock or something. Still, if this supports ultrawide Im there. I just hope that it doesn't turn in to what PES is on PC and there are no players online after a few weeks.
It won't support ultrawide being a fighter, I can guarantee that. Cheaters I imagine will be few and far between. Never came across 1 in 100 hours of SFV on PC. Be interested to see what the input lag is like on PS4, on GG and SFV its 4 and 6f respectively, but on my gsync monitor I'm getting 1f, pretty significant. I tend to play with a group on people on voice chat so accept a smaller player base in exchange for less lag and higher resolution.
Is the input lag not tied to the game engine. I thought that was the minimum input lag if you were outputting to a CRT with zero delay on your input methiod. Your display tech would then add to that. 1 frame being the absolute minimum for input lag as you'll always have frame transmission time. To get only 1 frame of input lag your computer would need to process the input and generate the frame instantly.
My monitor has a total of 10ms of lag (input lag + pixel response) and the game runs at 1f delay so yer probably looking at 1.5f of lag or something like that. But you have the same delay from the monitor on console of course plus whatever the game runs at, problem with console is there's no way to switch off vsync.
Some info here if you are interested in the differences. Regardless, PC versions are more responsive. http://www.dustloop.com/forums/index.php?/forums/topic/12529-ggxrd-input-lag-tests-results-pc-ps4-ps3/
Thanks for the link. Impressive work on the engine by Arc, Capcom didn't do nearly as good a job! I'd say his numbers are a rough approximation as his camera is only 60fps, valid indication all the same. I didn't know that anti-aliasing and post effects basically added 2 frames of delay.
Out of interest does gsync make any difference for fighting games. In theory it doesn't kick in unless your frame rate drops below the display refresh rate. Given that for fighting games you need to be locked to 60 anyway does it do anything?
The advantage to using gsync is it bypasses vsync giving less lag. In guilty gear you can disable it so you can get the same delay as gsync on a normal monitor, but may experience some choppiness/screen tearing. In SFV however there is no option to disable vsync so you are stuck with the delay that adds, unless you are using gsync/freesync.

You can turn off V-Sync in SFV - https://www.reddit.com/r/StreetFighter/comments/462a8r/engineini_quality_tweaks/


I didn't know this, good to know. Still it doesn't sound like it's great without it, save for less lag.

I don't have a console anymore but always enjoyed Tekken (whilst I prefer Dead or Alive).
Quite a few PC gamers have Steam Link and play on their TVs now using controllers. Also the fact that controllers are just plug & play nowadays means there will probably be a good enough player base!!
I think you will be in for a shock how few people will buy Tekken on PC. Even on PS4 which is the most popular system literally every fighting game that isn't Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter is pretty much dead. Even with Street Fighter 5 a month or two after release I was playing the same people over and over again. Fighting games are already niche as it is so unless you just want to play the single player stuff like story then I honestly wouldn't bother with PC.
Lie some more why don't you, you obviously don't game on PC lmao always spouting nonsense

Lie? Haha. Cool brah.

If only the game wasn't such a stinking pile of poo...

TO be fair, multiplayer wise, this is the last good CoD, people still play the MP of this on PS4/XBOX ONE due to it not having all that flying jetpack bs and it's all on the ground warfare.

Just to let you all know I've unsubscribed from this so I will no longer receive ratings or comments nore will I care to bother looking in future since this all seems a bit bias to me rather than people giving an honest opinion based on the sale. Those who like the game would be more grateful I'd imagine. Like I said earlier, my other post got a better response and I suspect that was due to those who actually do like it. Those who don't shouldn't even rate as that is not how the system was intended.

Bye.
It's not my cup of tea but it seems like a really good price for those who are interested. Have some heat
decent price compared with the current steam price, not voted either way but at least OP has bothered to post it. Would rather read this than a repeated cdkeys deal for Doom or Madmax which people keep voting hot even tho its almost the exact same deal as before only with a different discount code and price difference by the odd pence.

I tried the Oculus version in JL yesterday was pretty good (especially thw demo included a climbing app) but to be honest I was very disappointed with the graphics as it was no better than what I recall my Samsung VR was, is this any better. Also the cable is Irrating but then not advisable to stand or walk.

I'd suggest you get down to one of the PC World/Curry's that are offering free Vive demos and have a try before you buy, since it's a significant expense.

http://locator.vive.com

When I tried Vive and Oculus Touch, I found the Vive better in all ways (particularly room scale) except for comfort. That said, neither is brilliant for detailed graphics, so it tends to work better with games that stick with less realistic styles.





Thanks but that was my point I was hoping for far better graphics for the significantly higher cost. Agree these headsets are so immersion you overlook it but the cost is oO

You're not going to get FHD at this price...http://i.imgur.com/6ET18Ot.jpg
I don't see why not, it will be cra* otherwise, it usually goes with a nasty dull display
So you're saying all 1366x768 screen are crap and all FHD screens are wonderful?
Not necessarily, but it's well know that the same screen is fitted to a variety of machines and there seems to be a particularly nasty screen of this resolution going round with low contrast. Low viewing angle. But it is surprising what a difference this makes. Besides movies in HD, you just can't fit so much on the screen.
Like HD ready tvs, why do manufacturers still do it?
Because at less than 40 inch the non-AV snobs don't care? I think that HD ready is fine. Yes full hd, backlit keyboards, etc. are nice, but on budget machines they are rare for a reason. Give me HD ready plus decent CPU & ram over FHD & a processor less powerful than one likely to be found in a high end calculator in a few years.
IMO, it's consumer ignorance. This machine ticks all the other obvious boxes, but not this one, sometimes they don't even mention it. Caveat Emptor (^ ^)

So you're saying all 1366x768 screen are crap and all FHD screens are wonderful?
Not necessarily, but it's well know that the same screen is fitted to a variety of machines and there seems to be a particularly nasty screen of this resolution going round with low contrast. Low viewing angle. But it is surprising what a difference this makes. Besides movies in HD, you just can't fit so much on the screen.
Like HD ready tvs, why do manufacturers still do it?

Not sure it'd be bad investment though cause i take steroids. It'd just be a waste.

Ive bought thousands of pounds worth of PC, Xbox One and PS4 games and credit, and never had issues.

if they are doing something wrong then it's not up to me to investigate it. and once that code is registered on any of my accounts, they can't take it back anyway.

for all you know, tesco/asda/sainsburys etc, could be doing all kinds of shady ****, but you continue to wander around and fill up your trolley regardless.

pc keyboardIntroducing PCs

Where would you be without your PC? If you’re like most people in the UK, you use it to keep track of friends, make social engagements, share photos, play games, read the news, store music, write letters, do your accounts, watch TV or sports and find out the answers to nagging trivia questions via the World Wide Web. In fact, PCs are an integral part of everyday life.

The problem is that the pace of computer development means that owners are constantly required to update their model to run the latest software and keep their system running smoothly. This can get expensive, but by buying cleverly, you can save plenty of money on your next PC upgrade. This buyer’s guide explains how to find the perfect model for your needs.

PC: Powerful Machines

In a sense, you can trace the history of PCs back to the first abacus, when people started storing numerical information and using tools to calculate. But the history of the modern PC dates back a couple of hundred years to the calculating machine developed by Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace in the early 19th century.

After that, computers grew in size, becoming enormous, room-sized behemoths with thousands of vacuum tubes and punch cards governing their every move. Then everything changed. In the 1950s, transistors started to be imprinted on silicon chips, and computers began a seemingly endless shrinking process, becoming faster, more powerful and even more important to the lives of their users.

Nowadays, even standard desktop PCs seem outdated and clunky to some people (although as we’ll see, they have their uses). Consumers can choose between tiny notebook PCs, stripped back, ultra-cheap netbook, powerful laptops and everything in between. Whether you need a machine for hardcore graphics processing, complex business tasks, adrenaline-fuelled gaming or just checking social media, there’s a PC for you. It’ s just a matter of finding the right one.

What Can You Do With a PC?

Modern PCs can be used for a vast array of different activities. Everyday computer users can write essays, tally their accounts, buy products, read news articles, stream movies, TV and sports, play games and keep in touch with friends. That’s just standard PC configurations. Specialist PCs can carry out video editing in a matter of seconds, something that would have taken hours 20 years ago. They can model architectural plans, run smart devices in the home or interact with VR devices to conjure up whole new worlds. So, they are powerful tools. But what goes on inside a modern PC?

The Components that Make up a Modern Personal Computer

Every PC on the market will have certain components in common, and it’s these components that govern how fast and reliable they are and how much storage capacity and interactivity they have. Some of the most important parts of any PC include:

  • The Motherboard: The motherboard is named because it is the coordinating unit that links together all of the other parts of a PC. Why does it matter when you are buying a PC? Because unless you have an expandable motherboard, you won’t be able to add extra memory, storage capacity or graphics cards to enhance your system’s performance. Motherboards are designed with specific processors in mind, so if you are building a PC yourself, be sure to buy one that matches the processor you intend to use. If you intend to add extra hardware like sound cards or graphics cards, check that your motherboard has plenty of spare PCI slots. Without them, you won’t be able to add extra power to your PC.
  • The PC Case: Also known as the chassis, the case of your PC isn’t a mere shell. It’s an integral part of the overall machine. One reason is that it establishes the look of your machine. Some people may find it frivolous, but PCs are designer items as much as chairs or gaming consoles like the Xbox One or PS4, and there’s no reason why they should look dull. You’ll find plenty of dynamic cases available to choose from if the looks of your PC really matter. More importantly, cases are built to fit different motherboard types. If you’ll be using a larger ATX style board, go for a spacious case. The same goes for gamers who are installing larger GPU cards. You may also need plenty of space for the power supply. All of these factors tend to mean that gaming cases are larger than normal desktop cases, so bear that in mind when you purchase the parts for your PC (or an off the shelf model).
  • Memory: All PCs rely on memory (RAM) to carry out their operations. Generally speaking, the more memory you have, the faster games and video streams will run (though processor speeds and software configurations come into the equation as well). Gamers should look for around 8-16GB of RAM to be sure of handling graphics-intensive titles. However, most ordinary computer users won’ t need anywhere near that amount. It’s easy to be tricked into purchasing more RAM than you actually need, adding to your eventual price tag. If you know you’ll need the extra capacity, go for it, but for everyday web browsing and word processing, it’s a luxury you’ll hardly notice.
  • Hard Disk: The hard disk is where your computer stores programs, from games to videos, pictures, text files and utilities. The capacity of hard disks tends to be measured in gigabytes (thousands of megabytes), with around 500GB standard, although you can go as high as a few terabytes (TB) if you need to. From a gaming perspective, capacity isn’t as important as hard disk speed. The faster your computer can access information on your disk, the better. Check your disk’s ‘rpm’ (revolutions per minute). This is generally around 5,400, but the fastest drives can manage 7,200, which is what gamers will want to see. Alternatively, you could go for what is known as a SSD (SSD), which doesn’t need revs at all. They tend to come with smaller capacities, but with their ultra-high speeds, they are ideal for gamers (and you can store other files on external hard disks if needed as well).
  • Processor: The processor of your computer is the nerve centre. It determines how quickly everything runs, and a fast processor is essential if you want to build a killer gaming PC. Check the number of cores in any processor before buying. The more cores, the better, as they make data processing much more efficient. Processor speed also matters. Generally measured in GHz these days (gigahertz), look for speeds of 4 GHz or more, and go for reputable brands like Intel or AMD.
  • Software: Although not strictly speaking a ‘component’, every PC has to run on software, and the software it uses can determine how well it functions. Most importantly, PC buyers need to decide with operating system to buy and what features will come with it. The current standard for PCs is MicrosoftWindows 10, which will be absolutely fine for everyday PC users. However, be careful not to sign up for services or software you don’t need, and don’t fall for deals that promise great prices without any software. A £400 PC can quickly become a £600 purchase when the operating system and tools like Microsoft Office are included. If you are just using your PC for gaming, keep software purchases lean and relevant. Game downloading services like Steam will be an essential for many gamers, as will a browser like Chrome. If you are buying a PC, make sure a virus checker is installed as well (they often come for free), while chat clients like Discord could be handy as could Skype, which allows you to talk via the web on a standard headset.

tablet pc laptop Find the Right Model From the Many Different Types of PC

PCs come in all shapes and sizes, and you’ll encounter plenty of different categories when shopping for PCs online. Some of the basic categories include:

  • Desktop Towers: Larger machines that are designed to sit vertically or horizontally on or underneath desks. Ordinary home users who intend to use their computer for social media and TV streaming won’t need a desktop any more (although they used to be standard). However, if you need high-spec gaming performance, desktops are the only computers with the case capacity to hold the hardware you require.
  • Gaming Laptops: Gaming laptops are a different breed from conventional machines. They tend to be extra-powerful and portable so that gamers can take them to meet-ups and play wherever they wish. They also feature souped-up processors and graphics cards, as well as the cooling fans needed to keep them working, so gaming laptops can be heavier than other models. They look similar, but gaming laptops are specialist machines, and not everyone will need what they have to offer.
  • Standard Laptops: The kind of laptops you’ll find at Currys or John Lewis, they usually have screen sizes of between 15 and 17 inches, feature wireless capabilities and a wide range of connector ports. Good laptops will include USB ports to connect Hard drives, jacks for headphones, camera docking ports and ports for external controllers or keyboard.
  • Netbooks: Much smaller than standard laptops, netbooks have become increasingly popular in recent years. They are much cheaper than high end HP, Lenovo or Microsoft laptops, more lightweight and therefore ideal for kids of travellers. However, they usually feature slower processors, smaller hard disks and less memory, along with fewer ports. If all you need is a machine to check Facebook or write emails, a netbook could be perfect, but they are virtually useless for modern gaming.

Desktop, Laptop or Tablet: Which Computer to Choose in a Nutshell

Specifications to Consider When Buying a Gaming PC

If you are new to buying gaming PCs, it might be helpful to suggest a typical setup. This isn’t the only way you could setup your PC, but it’s a good guide to what you should be looking for when you search through the PC listings on HotUKDeals.

  • Motherboard: Go for a board with good expansion potential. Something like Intel’s Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming G1 would be ideal.
  • Memory: 16GB of DDR3 or DDR4 RAM would be more than enough.
  • Hard disk space: At the high end, a Seagate 3TB 6GB/s Internal HDD is fast and has huge capacity, but smaller SSD drives would be fine.
  • Graphics card: Don’t skimp on the graphics card. Go for something powerful from Nvidia: GTX range.
  • Processor: Speed is vital. Go for something that offers 4.6 GHz or above like the Intel Core i5-6600K.
  • Software: Keep things lean. Windows 10, Chrome, anti-virus, Skype, messaging tools and basic office tools should be enough.

What to Think About Before Buying Your Next PC

Whenever you purchase a computer, it’s important to think very hard about what you will be using the computer for. If you are a student who needs a work PC, don’t go for gaming PCs with cutting edge graphics cards (unless you plan to spend more time gaming than at the library).

If you are buying a family computer that needs to be versatile, don’t go for a netbook, as you will find it limiting, and don’t choose models with too much hard disk capacity or memory. Be realistic. The price differences between high-spec gaming PCs and off the shelf laptops is immense, and for most people the extra power simply isn’t necessary.

However, do think about connectivity. Make sure that your PC has enough USB ports to connect your family’s devices. You’ll need RAM and hard disk capacity to store images and videos, and a fast processor is always handy when streaming services like Netflix.

If you are building a gaming PC, you’ll probably be aware of the need for specific components and high-end performance. But less serious gamers can easily spend more money than they have to. Many games don’t use current PCs to their full potential, and if they start to do so, most systems can be upgraded instead of replaced.

In fact, it’s a good idea to consider whether your current PC can be upgraded. In many cases, extra RAM or hard disk space can improve system performance and allow slightly older PCs to run current gaming titles. It’s much cheaper than buying a new PC, and there are plenty of deals on components at HotUKDeals.

What About Macs or Tablets? Do I Even Need a PC?

What about Macs? We’ve been talking about PCs in this buyer’s guide, but Apple Macintosh computers are also popular computer systems and entertainment machines. They also have the added bonus of interacting seamlessly with Apple devices like iPhones and iPads, as well as streaming services like iTunes.

Another big advantage of Macs is that when you buy them, they come with everything most home users will need, straight out of the box. For instance, you won’t need to buy a word processor or graphics editing package (which can cost over a hundred pounds). Getting up and running is simple, an Apple provide what you need, so you don’t have to hunt around for the right software.

However, where Macs fall down is gaming. Although many current titles like Civilization VI and Homefront: the Revolution are available on Macs, the range of titles is thinner and dedicated gaming Windows PCs will always outperform Apple’s machines.

Still, if you are in the market for a basic computer that surfs the web, handles photos and lets you create documents, it’s a toss-up between Macs and PCs. You could even throw tablets into the mix as well. These hybrids lie between smartphones and laptops, and do most things that PCs can do, while being much more portable. Some tablets like the Nvidia Shield are capable of playing advanced Android games, so there’s plenty of fun to be had; just not the same kind of gaming experience you’ll enjoy with a dedicated ultra-powerful gaming rig.

How and When to Buy Your Next PC

Buying a PC can be a stressful process. The sheer range of options available and the uncertainty that everyone has about how much disk space or memory they might need in the future can make buying a PC a tortuous experience. However, things don’t have to be that way.

When you’ve zeroed in on the specifications of your ideal PC, there are plenty of ways to go about making the purchase.

If you are buying a family PC, high street retailers like Currys, PC World and John Lewis are excellent places to start. When you visit, staff should be able to answer basic queries about the features you need and point you in the right direction. However, they may not be able to offer you the best deals.

Before finalising your purchase, check the HotUKDeals listings to find out whether your ideal PC is available elsewhere. Online retailers like Amazon, CCL Online and Ebuyer often run discounts on standard PCs and gaming rigs that can be easily missed by everyday buyers.

If you intend to purchase individual system components and build your own PC, HotUKDeals is the place to go. You’ll find regular listings of hard disks from suppliers like Dell and online retailers, as well as RAM deals, offers on motherboards, graphics cards and PC cases as well. It’ s a great way to gather together all of the various components you’ll need while paying as little as possible.

Whether you are buying an off the shelf PC or building your own computer, excellent times to look for deals are Black Friday and Cyber Monday in November and the January sales. There may also be discounts related to the start of the school or university term in September, as well as flash sales when manufacturers bring out new models. It’s tough to predict. Just bookmark the HotUKDeals PC pages and you won’t miss a deal.

Save Money and Find the Perfect PC at HotUKDeals

Having a PC seems to be an essential part of modern life, and for most people it is vital to have an up to date machine. Whether you are a hardcore gamer who needs the fastest possible PC, or you just require a machine to check social media, the HotUKDeals PC listings are the best place to find the products you need at the lowest price possible.
