Doesn't seem that great, an i3 and only 8GB of ram. Doubt it will be that good for gaming.
Yeah quad cores with only 4 threads are not recommended any more. You can get good 6 core Ryzen machines for that price. I just put together a PCPartpicker build for a little over £600 with a Ryzen 2600, RX 590 and quality mobo, SSD, PSU, and case....
i3? You're gonna get bottlenecked hard

Gonna link me to all the stuff you bought. Trying to build on up myself.
Well it's definitely entry level, but that's a really good price for something which comes with a genuine windows installation. Great find! Thx for posting.

All the die-hard gamers will hate it, whilst simultaneously offering no advice how to do any better for the money (or if they do will conveniently ignore the £100 for a legit Windows license, LOL). By the time you back out the £100 for the OS you've only got £450 to get the hardware.

I'm currently in the market for an entry level system for my son for under £550, and this is pretty close to what I was aiming for. You can't build a system for this price (not with genuine Windows) and it's nice not having to faff around with the build and to have the warranty. It gets some heat from me.

All that said I may end up going for the CCL version on e-bay, which substitutes an 8GB RX570 for the 4GB '1650 and gives you an extra 1 year warranty. You do substitute the SSD for a 1TB HDD though, but I think it's arguably a better machine for £50 less?

You might want to consider going for the MSI B450M Mortar micro ATX board instead, as the I/O is perhaps a little better. If you don't need all the PCIE slots and are just going to be gaming then it might be a better more compact choice. Pair it with a decent micro ATX size case such as the Fractal Meshify C Mini and you're golden.

Also consider that there is apparently going to be some new AMD budget GPUs released this month, that might perform similarly or better than the 590 at lower power (which means less heat and noise). But I don't know what the prices will be. Look into some of the Nvidia offerings too, though their product stack is confusing AF. Many of them have 4GB of VRAM rather than 8GB, which I'm a little concerned about for future games.

Hope that helps.

I'm in the market for around the same price for my son too. I looked at the PC on your link and noticed the wireless network connection was only at 2.4Ghz. My knowledge is very limited and thought that 5ghz would be better unless you have a wired connection? I understand that 2.4ghz travels better, but our current PC only offers 2.4ghz and only downloads 10mbps, whilst other 5ghz connections in the house are measuring at 100+mbps.

Based on your advice, I'm quite tempted by the ebay deal, but worried about the Internet connection. Any advice gratefully appreciated!
