This seems a better deal for the price. RX 480 is comparable with the GTX 1060.

The one I linked to has a faster i5, an additional 128GB SSD and better GPU. The rx 480 benchmarks higher than the 970.

This would be better for gaming, but the laptop earlier was a far better deal.

Personally think that's a better deal with an SSD.

Thank you very much, and too all of you who replied.
May I ask does anyone think I'd be able to do any better today if I bump up my budget (to say 700)? I'm rocking a self build cerca 2007 with an ssd upgrade atm with a Gigabyte GTX 460 Super OverClock Edition 1GB card.

970 is a solid card

Only game mine has struggled with is warhammer totalwar 2 after all these years.

this PC is a bargain but the CPU is a bit weak

I mean, it's not likely - but the best thing you could potentially do is build something fresh and just not worry about the budget (obviously, but that doesn't work for everyone).

But, the second best thing you can do is buy the RX480 build, sell the RX480 and buy a better GPU like a 1070 or 1080 with the remainder of your budget, that'll give you the biggest increase in perf.

just remember that being a desktop individual components are replaceable/up-gradable at anytime you like, so for now this is ok for games in a year or two it could still be upgraded to be ok.

Not really worth upgrading this to anything its basically at its limits now...

The CPU is already bottlenecking the GPU, to upgrade this would be to replace everything inside the case lol

This PC is good for a gamer who doesnt mind turning a few settings down, It is older hardware but still has enough grunt to get the most out of most the new games, just dont expect wonders on RTS games or Demanding AAA games.

The guy upgrading from a 470 build this will be amazing for you, specially for the price.

Oh that's really helpful thank you very much. Can I be really cheeky would this thing be able to run the hardware for that star trek vr game? If I get the headset obviously? My daughter is bugging me about it.

I wouldnt buy this for VR its too weak, VR is very demanding, not sure if the star trek game is but spending all that for 1 game is not really worth it. I think the star trek game is not as demanding as others but the 970 is kinda weak for VR anyway and the CPU not allowing the 970 to fully stretch its wings just wont be worth it, so id say avoid if you want a good experience.

Also the star trek game is really short, its not like a full game i dont think? Ive watched a few streamers play it and its very small, not worth £700 investment lol.

Thanks for that it's very helpful. Just to clarify was going for the AMD Radeon RX-480 build linked above. It wouldn't be just for that game, but it was a perk if it would run it :-P.

The only issue with this build is that 300W PSU... if only it was 500W.

For the record, he is wrong saying that your CPU would be bottlenecked.

If you did as previously mentioned and upgraded the graphics card to a 1070 it should be ok for the star trek game.

For Bridge Crew the minimum requirements are as follows, though you definitely want to aim beyond and take the "minimum" with a pinch of salt for VR games;

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
  • MINIMUM:
    • OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10
    • Processor: Intel® i5-4590, AMD FX 8350 equivalent or better
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 970, AMD Radeon™ R9 290 equivalent or better
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • RECOMMENDED:
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM

@Chezbezy if you are looking for a 1070 let me know as I maybe selling my 1070 gaming X

Would this be any good with 1080p (or ideally 4k) video editing? I am trying to use Adobe. Premier Pro to edit some movies and create special effects etc and my old PC is struggling.

Been a member over a year and not bothered to post any deals.

Nowt like a HUKD gaming pc thread for showing how little people actually know about playing games.

Both this system and the one linked above will play ALL current games unless you want 'ultra' * or some exotic resolution.

End of.

* ultra setting are for plebs, play the game not the graphics.

In my defence it's because I always thoroughly search before doing so. I'm not asking for anyone to sell me anything I'm just explaining why I haven't posted. Although why I'm doing that I'm now wondering... *blinks*

I were using a same PC since 2013 it has awesome feature and look as well

The RX480 is the better deal. Its is likely to be oos very soon as all these PC clearance deals are selling out very quickly. For the price it is a very very good deal

I don't game on PCs and that HP is tempting me to upgrade my build for no good reason. Damned HUKD.

Most people want to buy a PC to last a while not just be ok with games today on medium, my old pc with a gtx460 will play ALL games today. This website is about getting the best bang for your buck also.

The second link is better for rendering, could do with 8 more GB of RAM maybe but I edit on my pc with 8gb of ram no problem. Check to see if the editing software you use has GPU assist or render on GPU, as it will greatly reduce render time which is the only issue that is really a big thing.

yup. It's sold out just as i was going through checkout.

both are quite budget gaming pcs (albeit not bad for the price) and won't really last the test of future titles, you're better off paying a little extra and building your own gaming pc and upgrading along the way. Can't believe they were selling these for over £1000 originally!! Madness

Big hairy dog rollox.

Both of the above PCs will play almost every game at 60+fps. Maybe with the exception of COH2 as the engine is so crap there isn't a computer on the planet that can run it properly.

gaming pc? without ssd? .. it aint nowt without a ssd..

60fps isn't exactly smooth like i said. They are very budget gaming rigs and you'd be better off learning a little bit about building and doing it yourself but anyway, i'm not here to argue just giving my 2 cents.
