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.

wow 2001 want their website back

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

AMD = CRAP!

Voted hot.. so others see it lol

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%.

for an extra £65 you could get this from awd, good review on kitguru
