5180 - cpu benchmark

£219 for me

Do you still get Windows 10 as a free upgrade or has that ended now?

This is priced about where it should be considering what it is.

My bad, wasn't applying the discount in my basket even though it said it had, but at checkout it does.

Anyone know if this would do for a plex server?

My dad bouth this a few weeks back for about £240 from Argos, great little PC with better graphics chip than the model below (its in blue on the Argos website). It's basic but solid and have room to upgrade inside. Need him to get an SSD next as he doesn't believe it will make it faster. DVD drive is a laptop one which I dislike but other than that for £186 its a cracking deal.

Great price!

Easily.

Plex runs fine on my Intel Duel-core Celron G1610T. This A8 will run it without a sweat.

Decent price but in comparison its a I3 4th gen intel chipset.

Like a Farrari 458 will do for driving the national speed limit.

A touch over a fiver id say

It appears to be missing an additional ~£182.

in terms of Trident it is a little over a fiver!?!

Specs from HP if anyone needs them:

HP Specs Page

Nice pre-build for the money I think. The usual 'install an SSD' advice stands. Only a 180W PSU, but does have a PCI-e 16x slot. I'd say it's a full sized case so you wouldn't be limited on graphics card size, although it doesn't specifically state that it is on the HP page, it's 16.5cm wide so it should be.

A GTX 750ti draws ~65W and some models don't require additional power. Given the CPU can take 65w and 20% loss on the 180w figure leaves you with <150W to play with, it'd be close to the limit.

does anyone know if you can use this for gaming?

Apparently not terrible, but you'd be looking at lower resolutions and details. Older stuff will probably be fine. Don't expect to play Doom at 4k with everything turned up

would benefit from a dedicated graphics card

How come the refurbished version of this costs an extra £20 more (before any discount applied)?
Looks identical spec >> ebay.co.uk/itm…030?hash=item542629bb6e:g:gZoAAOSwRH5XKxZn

No HDMI? Really?

​So if I got this and put a graphics card inside, it would be OK?

I think this is a bargain! The onboard graphics are pretty damn good really, should play quite a few games quite well at 1080p if you're interested. It also looks pretty good for photoshop although any intensive work would require more RAM.

I want my decent computing for a fiver dammit!!

Anyone know of a value 8GB batch of extra memory to put in this?

6YO you should replace it

could go on forever but cheap to upgrade to a much better computer these days, such as my deal

The most underrated joke ever. Bravo.

Would still be slow. It would need a CPU upgrade in addition. And also, might need to upgrade your PSU dependent on your GPU

No point in getting a GPU to play high extensive games when you have the bottleneck processor. Upgrade to CPU at least and get a cheap GPU - way better then splashing put on a whack card.
