this any good for pc gaming will it play new games top resolution with no lag not had a pc for a while

Not sure about the value of the RRP but a good buy at this price.Heat

how do you get it at that price?

pc_tech86

how do you get it at that price?


code buy-4 hidden in title

thats a decent price although the website is not clear as it says it is " reduced to £499.97 plus this weekend £100 off with offer code BUY-4"

which would make it £399.97

but it states it is £462.64 ?
no mention of ram which is odd as ram is quite cheap at the moment
while it isnt the most awsome of pc's dont forget the i5-650 is dual core rather than quad core, it is a very good deal for £362.64

heat

4GB ram.
Price is correct - £362.64 for free five day delivery or collection. 1.5% surcharge on credit cards

yep, gone up just before check out. Not the fault of OP - was done at their end

Where do you find these codes for saveonlaptops? I see codes mentioned here (like the g72 code for the HP laptop) which don't
seem to be mentioned on the site.

Nope not what you would call a gaming PC at all people. Hot for the price but dont expect much performance.

Dual Core not Quad Core i5 plus the last generation to boot and the graphics card is very low end, only worth about £40.

Thanks, it's just that I'm looking for the best sub £400 laptop and I'm scared of missing any discount codes

I'm tempted by this saveonlaptops.co.uk/Len…tml (£370 after lenovo Cashback). Don't suppose you know of any codes?

doh

At £362 it's a good deal, at £400 I would say it's ok, but it's not really for high end gaming, needs a much better graphics card.

The GT340 is low end and obsolete.

true but if you are willing to invest little bit more it could be a great base to upgrade

Not really as they are not making processors for these motherboards any more and I bet the power supply would need replacing before you can install a decent card.

Looks like a transformer.

you can go for newest gtx 560 which consume 60-70 wats more than gt340 I'm sure power unit has got this margin and it will make it decent gaming machine, replacing processor is not necessary

Decent price, but that gfx card is pants. Have seen the same system but higher spec 6gb, 1tb, GTX 460 3GB version on a certain well known auction site, for a decent price.

I've checked power difference between gt340 and gtx560ti is bigger than I expected about 100wats but still I believe power unit in this particular PC have this margin but worth to check before purchase

I heard it was the... Oh, i see what you did there!

@Eez1 - Console gaming's a joke; just get yourself a PC.

iam a console gamer and if i could afford it i would DROP my PS3 and 360 instantly for gaming pc.

I have both (a 360 and a gaming PC). When I was a single man it was the PC all the way, but now I have two kids and no time to update/fix/upgrade/install/patch/troubleshoot I only really use the 360. Also, I only really play easy to pick up and put down games now (FPSs mostly), not the deep immersive timesyncs like Civ that I used to love (and that the PC is far better at) .

So basically, they both have their place.

Agreed Profet. They both have they're places. The unfortunate realities are that pc gamers get decent strategy/rts games console gamers can only dream of but the same can definitely be said in reverse, for every shogun a gamer can laugh off with an Uncharted, a Killzone, a Halo 3 etc. Even the big new release of the week LA Noire is exclusive to consoles..

...what about crysis1 it was exlusivly for PC and now Witcher2

Cold from me. I love the case. But that's about it.
Specs-wise this isn't really suitable for gaiming. Unless you define budget gaming as playing Angry Birds.
Dual-core old gen CPU. It's decent enough for now, but not easily upgradeable. Not to mention the GFX card, which is simply a joke on a gaming machine.
You could build a quad-core sandy bridge gaming beast for something like £70 more.

...what about crysis1 it was exlusivly for PC and now Witcher2



..thats my point.. crysis for all its worth was the one game that the pc gaming community could rally around at the time because it showed a) that the pc could blow consoles out the water graphically and b) it was a pc exclusive.. and for you to have to resort to using it as an example says it all.. it was released in november 2007. Any idea just how many console exclusive games have been and gone in that time!

This deal is Hot for what it is, but bare in mind that for the same price I could pop on amazon, grab a 360, a ps3, Halo Reach, Fable 3, Red Dead Redemption and a blu-ray to boot..

I AM a pc gamer and have been since the days of Sam and Max, Grim Fandango, X-Wing vs Tie Fighter etc so please don't anybody think I'm trolling, fan baiting etc. it's just the sad realities of the industry as it stands now that pc gaming is not what it used to be. Software houses are turning they're backs on pc gamers in they're droves. The one ray of light the pc market has had these last couple of years has ironically been the likes of Machinarium and other little indy titles, and they go against having a top of the line pc to start with..

Oh and Witcher 2 is console bound according to THIS article..

Cold, can get an equivalent Sandybridge for £400 that will be much faster.



Interesting to hear - have you got a link for a good Sandybridge machine?

Well yes but only if you are a fan of old hardware.........

An nVidia Geforce GT340 is not good enough to play big new releases at high spec.

GTX 4 series and above. Note that GTX not GTS.
