PS4 1TB linkedit - link fixed



​cheers pal.
Ordered the PS4, thanks OP
1TB PS4 uses old sku of the PS4 (same as launch 500GB PS4), newer 500GB models use less power and produce less heat.
Went for one of the Tablets for the kids to use, cheers OP.
I was gonna get one of these tablets for the same price from Sainsbury's a few months back, but they sold out so I've took the plunge here. Hopefully it's good enough for streaming online videos and general browsing.
This PC any good for gaming?

No it has a £30 graphics card, only good for old games.

​Thanks for reply. Crysis is an old game but power hungry. Would that sort of game run well on this graphics card?
ooooh 1 PS4 left

I know CPU's.

I strongly recommend that you choose an i5 or above - fourth gen upwards for any sort of gaming.

You will also need a decent video card (know as a Graphics Processing Unit [GPU for short]).

The core issue then, is that you need to power both of these sufficiently - so the power supply must be up to the task.

This desktop is not that good a deal - if you will consider buying refurbished units from PC World (always buy on a credit card for anything over £100 as it gives you added consumer rights).

If that was the Sainsbury's new customer code deal - that was the 8" version - I missed out on that one aswell
I'm wondering if the linx 7 is a little long 'long in the tooth' now?
Typical hot uk deals thread... someone says you need an i5 to play games = loads of the stuff that comes out of a male cow's rear end.

It all depends what games you want to play.

That is correct, the new i3 6100 does a very good job in games paired with a decent gpu.

My 6 year old Phenom X4 @ 3.2GHz paired with a 2GB 7850 (neither of them overclocked) still runs Far Cry 4 comfortably on Ultra, and that was considered a budget processor at the time.

Even though there seems to be a couple of rebuttals posted, I strongly suggest you check each of these opinions against independant sources.

Having been an Intel representative, I am beyond confident, that if you are looking to access a medium to longer term gaming rig investment - start with an i5.

Start by browsing a few pc magazines in WHsmiths. Look at the pc builder adverts, that are strewn within these publications. I assure you 9 out of 10 'gaming rigs' start with i5's as a base, moving up to i7's for premium rigs.

I assure you - the breathing room that an i5 provides - is something you will thank me for at some point. It's simply a better vaule prospect than coming in at an entry level (mainstream) level with an i3.

Pound for pound, you will see a higher return on your (no doubt) hard earned pounds.

Rumour has it, one way of it using less power is by not spinning the fan so much, which in turn actually generated more heat

Don't just address my opinion. At a minimum, you could offer some infomation that positively helps our fellow hotukdeal member uncover a solution/find a direction for themselves.

At least make an attempt to help by pointing them in some sort of direction, with an outline to start with.

Not this. It's a great little device don't get me wrong, but it's not particularly user friendly, and the default Edge web browser does not perform well on it. It would frustrate and confuse a computerphobe.

I felt I have helped in that respect. By suggesting that people refer to the experience of true independent sources on Hotukdeals, rather than an Intel representative who suggests they base their purchasing decision on the information found in "adverts".

Former intel representative. It's quite clear in my post.

I also never said an i5 is needed, but rather suggested it is preferable. Again, it just takes a moment to read my posts.

The adverts were mentioned, so that the poster can see what the custom pc industry considers 'industry standard' when offering/discussing gaming rigs. Again, I was clear that these PC magazines and the adverts within, them are 'just a starting point'. Again its a matter of simply reading the post.

To the person that had asked the question that elicited my original response. Think of it like this. You can buy an entry level iphone with 16gb of onboard memory, or one with 32gb. Yes one is more expensive than the other, but eventually you'll end up realising why (over the long term).

Best wishes to you both.

Sorry, were you looking for the word overconfident...
Yes, an i5 is a good choice for someone who is seriously into gaming. At this point you'd want a high end graphics card as well.
However, if you are on a budget or if you only play occasionally an i3 or even a Pentium is a sufficient. A high end graphics card may be a waste of money in such a configuration.

I've had a 7850 with a Pentium which worked surprisingly well for medium/high settings in various games.
