Could build my own without all the bloat ware for cheaper. Suppose it's an ok deal for someone who hasn't got the means to buy components from somewhere like Novatech and build their own.

I think your better of getting a pre-built PC from Overclockers or Novatech than this. The graphics are pretty weak.

Yeah i could build one cheaper but i want to buy it today because im an impatient idiot lol

Try to look for NVidia 660 or Ati 7850 or higher, check Dell xps 8500.

GB credit crunch

But i dont think its going to be good enough for gaming - hence shopping around. Thanks for the advice everyone

If you are looking for a good PC at a good price and also with 3 years warranty try this website

http://www.puterz.co.uk/

I bought my previous PC from them and it was very good service. Although I built my latest PC and it's much better, nothing like building your own :-)

I wouldn't get an advent for gaming, had one in the past and never again

Cheers mate - ill have a look

As said. GT630 is pretty pants really, that card can be had for £40-£50. Don't be too influenced by the 2Gb Graphics memory - a card with this processing power will never need or exploit that memory.

Banned

700 for an advent...... Build it yourself, much cheaper

Cheers bud - i found a benchmark site now so i can now see that my own deal is crap lol
Looking in Argos and PC World as really want something for the weekend but they have really bad graphics cards in the zoostorms and pc worlds offerings at the £400 - £500 quid mark.

Don't buy this computer for Gaming!...Got my Titanx Series from Overclockers for £700... it's far better than this Advent i5 3570k @ 4.4ghz (i7s Are NOT needed for modern gaming most games don't have more than 4 threads i7s are for video editing or photoshop etc ~ Just a heads up), GTX 680 2GB, 8GB RAM (Same as the i7 most if not all games at this time will never need to use more than 6/7GB RAM, 2TB HD, Windows 8 OS, Water cooling system, The graphics on this Advent sucks as well I doubt it would be able to play very many games from 2010-now, If ya want a computer for gaming check PC Specialist or as I Overclockers.
