AMD Avenger (KAV3) - Palicomp - £499.99
HI, I stumbled across this PC, and I thought you got quite a lot for your money. I know it would be cheaper to build my own. But I think this is a good deal none the less.

Problem is both AMD and Intel cheat, you can find benchmarks that show each one better than the other.

They also work differently internally, AMD do a few things better than Intel; for raw speed and power, Intel win hands down, but the AMD chips tend to handle multi-threading better.

Some games seem to work better with AMD cpus as well, although mostly older ones. I hear a lot of complaints on LOTRO about the single thread game maxing out a core on high spec Intel i7 cpus, but on my ancient 6 core AMD, it has never gone above 90%, and after overclocking it by 10%, it maxes out at about 85%.

Usually the signs are a newly signed up member that immedietly post a deal whereas many, but not all, members seem to sign up, lurk around for a while before posting a deal. If you're simply posting a deal then accept my apologies if I've jumped the gun on my assumption.Palicom seem to no longer trade on ebay (they were a massive seller of very low cost systems) but in last few years seem to have really improved their products and support which I suspect is why they deleted their ebay account (to get rid of all the terrible negatives feedback they had!)



No problem apology accepted hehe.
I am just passing on some deals I have found, I am going to be allot more active as I think this site is a good idea, pity I did not find this sooner, I am on other sites and love deals.

Yeah does stink of self promotion.... I remember going back some years … Yeah does stink of self promotion.... I remember going back some years when Palicomp were pretty dire and gave shoddy customer service, their ebay feedback was chock full of tales of woe but they seem to have significantly improved over the years. However this does smell fishy so time to expire unless the OP wants to make another appearance?


Didn't know they were on eBay, I found them as they are local to me and I've had no problems with them, they were very helpful in setting this up for me. Maybe they have reformed or changed hands, dunno but I have not see this.

You'll get loads of decent deals on a 360 nowadays. Not to mention a load of cheap games too. Why not PS3 or even PS4 or Xbox1?

The Playstation options are pretty good as you get 'free' games every month with a PSN+ subscription.

Took almost a month to build but they blamed all the bank holidays recently for the delay.Anyway, I installed my own graphics card and everything seems just fine. It runs Titanfall on max settings 1920x1080 flawlessly on 60fps. Not had a chance to try much else yet but overall I'm quite pleased to have went with Chillblast. Especially considering the 2 years return to base warranty.Did you end up buying anything?

Hot for me, been looking for a pc with this spec and price range for a while. Normally build my own but this is close to cost. Just ordered, upgraded PSU and SSD, gave them a call and they did a deal on the warranty too...

Felt I should thank you as you lead me to look at getting a quote from Chillblast to start with. The graphics card I bought separately is a bit OTT but I figured that it was better value than the ones they would have used. They didn't seem to be able to guarantee which version of the cards that would have been used so I decided to leave that out and buy my own.

There has been much better machines on here than this recently. Poor effort

Occasionally some good deals on 7950s, which I would take over a 660 everyday of the week

I'd avoid Palicomp like the plague, for years they've had shocking reviews.

http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews243987.html#Reviews

Of course I'm sure there are many happy customers out there but would I chance it? No!

lol 6450 is low end...itll run minecraft on low settings and older games

my sons pc has a 6670 and id consider that low end. it replaced and ageing but problematic bulky yet faster nvidia 260gtx

if you want cheapish but decent gaming card id go for a 670gtx or even cheaper 660gtx...the are faster cards but they are still crazy prices

brookheather

Lowest end graphics card - certainly not suitable for gaming.



6450 can be barely considered even low end its a HTPC card
im always seeing 5450s and ilk considered low end gaming cards but they can barely run games on low
