Just eyeballed this on the Lenovo Black Friday sale, look really good for the money. Has 8GB Ram, 1TB HDD, AMD RX 560 which trades blows with the GTX 1050. At £349.99 delivered you can't go wrong. Seen a few monster machines posted, so this is for anyone not wanting to go all out price wise, that wants to attack a few games. Has W10 64 installed too

is this cheaper than a self build and is it future proof (at least in the upgrade sense)?

fantastic price, i built one similar spec but without the gfx card and it came to roughly the same price

The G4560 is a great little chip but getting pretty tired now.

I doubt its particularly upgradable. These prebuilt desktops tend to use custom cases/boards etc. You could probably stick a newer GPU (same or less power requirements) later on and more RAM but i doubt its worth it. This is a buy, use for a few years then discard machine. Should be fine for some light gaming but very little worth keeping for an upgrade...

I'd say you could upgrade the CPU as well; I've got the exact same spec (self built) and I intend to upgrade it when the i5 and i7 of that generation get a little cheaper

Just going off PCPartPicker this probably does work out cheaper than buying the components and assembling yourself. As far as being future proof for upgrades I can't find any info on the motherboard which makes it tricky to figure out. Often with pre-builts, especially budget ones, you'll find you're better off replacing so many components you might as well start a new build. If you're looking for a good gaming PC I would aim for something more powerful than this as the gpu isn't really going to handle modern AAA games well.

Hmm I am always on the lookout for a machine that could run DayZ perfectly. Mind you, I've also been waiting for them to release the final version of the stand alone and now its been about 4 years so I've got a bit ambivalent about it all.

Is there something going in black friday which has knocked anyone's socks off around this price range?

Thanks

Superb deal. Will play even new games fine, just not on high details. For £350 I'm thankful for any gaming.

Also I wouldn't mind hackintoshability if anyone has any ideas or has been looking at one for themselves please share. Thanks

could you play GTA 5 @ 1080p 60fps ?

This will definitely be cheaper than putting together a similar system with the components and comes with the warranty as well. Solid Heat

...you joker!!! ..... to you perhaps!?

Am still using the G3258 launched in 2014 but am pretty sure that there are even more users with more older chips than that still rockin about.
These budget Pentium CPU's are obviously not ideal for intensive task's but coupled with the right components, you could get decent "bang for the buck" general, performances.

hi all.
am not PC savy at all sorry. what is better this one or currys.co.uk/gbu…tml

looking for one for my son for school work and basic gaming not the high end games

The Lenovo is the better deal.

You cant actually add this to your basket though....

I just did ... scroll to the very bottom of the page, thats where I saw the option.

Well I just got one in the end, I'll find out about hackintosh and the like down the line. I haven't looked at getting a desktop pc in a few years so whatever I was looking at then at a stupid price I suppose is comparable to this nowadays at a cheaper one. I'll give all the games I've missed in the mean time a shot and that should be good enough to go.

Only question left now is if anyone thinks it's possible to somehow hook a 3.5 inch ssd up to this as a secondary hard drive? I don't know the kit needed, I originally bought it for a laptop years ago and still have it in the cupboard.

I must be missing something- i get there an the button is greyed out

Scroll to bottom and the processor is Intel Pentium G4560 Processor ( 3.50GHz 2400MHz 3MB )

This a good pc for gaming ? not expecting high settings but middle would be good

Yep says that processor - but add to basket button is grey not blue

Managed to order off my phone

Button went blue for a sec so i pressed - think the have very limited stock.

Does it come with a mouse and keyboard, or do i need to buy them?

Just need a screen now too!

7% Topcashback.

Not sure weather the cpu would be any good.
however I can get 75fps at 1080p
using a stock i5 2500k, a r9 280x,16gb ram an a really cheap mobo.
And this comparison
gpu.userbenchmark.com/Com…192
Shows it's quite a lot poorer than mine- which was built to run minecraft originally.

it will play games, but iid rather spend a little more for better GPs or the equivalent on a much much better 2nd hand machine.

That was a gooden, self build is £400 minimum.

Great deal in my opinion, still a very capable budget CPU.

Hi, surprised no one has replied to you. Thinking only of prebuilts, you might wanna have a look at the refurb market for a 'my first pc' kinda thing. eBay search 'refurb dells' - some are £100 and will work as good as something that pc world/currys sell for £400 (that one you linked.. not sure when it was ever worth £600..). Even something that is £100 on eBay will still actually work really well and won't blow your budget. If you buy from a refurb business Many do 12 month warranties. Many of them have windows included as well. All you'd need to buy is a mouse and keyboard and a screen. The only reason they're so cheap is once tech is a few years old it crashes in price, even if it's still perfectly fine. Only recommending the Dell as you mention gaming not being a main point. Sure others will chip in

It will be fine, you will just need to add keyboard, mouse and monitor, I was about to pull the trigger myself but was too late

The review on reevoo stated that they received the keyboard and mouse with it
