Powerful desktop . Heat added
I know nothing about computers but need to get one for my son as the one he has is too slow according to him. Any advice? He wants it to be faster and also would like it good enough for some games. He is 16. From my point of view I need it to be good enough for him to do his A levels on it and not cost me a fortune! Anyone who could advise me what to look for or if this is the deal for me? Many thanks
Confused if there's a 1050 in there the picture of the back is wrong lol. Also only a 310w psu migjt be a hard upgrade for anythink better in the future. Decent machine just be aware of what your buying

That doesn't have a GPU, so is not very good at gaming. You can add an entry level GPU like the 1050 to that for ~£150 but that brings the whole unit into the £600 ball park for a similar unit to the HP tower. I would definitely chose the HP over the Orion in this case.

VR is a waste of time at this price bracket. Sorry to be brutal about it.

Switch it out for an Nvidia if you want, not great value for money.

Well with a Quest and Link setup, you could use something lower end maybe a GTX 1660 Super, but I'm not saying that it will be amazing.

I seen a video reviewing a mini GTX 2070 (8 pin) yesterday. His total power draw for the whole system was 230W. Granted, a cheaper PSU could blower sooner than later with that draw,
Can this run Crysis on Max settings?

Can this run Crysis on Max settings?



Yes, that's a nearly 13 year old game.
Just in case you're sad like me and need to see the inside
Could this be upgraded to 16gb ram? If so, would it be worth doing? Any help is much appreciated. Looking for a pc to mainly run hyperspin games, maybe a few modern games. 1080p is fine for me.
It seems really expensive to me. I am not voting as for around the same money or a few quid more you can get a better system.

For example you can get a system with a Ryzen 2300X which is only a 4 core CPU rather than a 6 core like the i5-8400. But it's not that much better when it comes to games. But this system also has a RX 580 which is much better than a 1050. All for £400 at the following link.

awd-it.co.uk/awd…tml

Or for a extra £45 swap out the 2300x for a 2600.
Can anyone recommend a half decent gaming pc for around 400. Looking to play mainly older games on hyperspin, maybe some recent ones, but 1080p would be fine. Thanks
powerful desktop... oh how they laughed
I've found a refurb i7 with a 1070 and 16gb ram for £550, does this seem a good deal? It's grade A condition so just wanted some others opinions!

Thanks I went ahead and ordered this one.
Well if it can run battlefield with that many frames it's definitely more powerful than a PS4. And for the 399.99 mark I'd say it's more than great. There's a slot to upgrade ram and graphics card but as it's small form factor that's about all you can upgrade for the future.
