I thought this looks like good value.
Just add a graphics card if needed. You may need to upgrade the power supply though!

lookz a good deal to me

How much does a decent GPU cost? to play latest games etc

The motherboard interfaces seem to be really old.... includes serial, parrallel and VGA?

The first to might be useful for hacking and other electronic stuff that use those intercases.... but not much else nowadays.... serial mice have been gone for many years now..... printers are more typically USB based than parraellel port..... and VGA graphics slot? is that AGP? PCI-e is the interface of most high performance gaming cards nowadays.


It obviously does SATA and DDR2 type memory so must be a new type of motherboard.... the interfaces just seem stange to include .

Good deal - just built one of my own for £450 ish

Comments SAY:

PSU is actually 420w max when I opened case to re-attach front usb cable.

Motherboard is Foxconn G31MX series.

Graphics on board but 2 spare PCI slots + PCI Express to upgrade.

Nice machine for the money, very happy with it so far

Hundreds of current boards still have serial and parallel port interfaces, some to the back panel, others as headers. Don't make an issue of it, it's called "legacy support".

VGA - the motherboard has built-in VGA (ie, not DVI) graphics, which aren't bad these days for anyone not into cutting-edge gaming. No slot used. If you want better graphics, it takes a PCIe card and you'll need to spend another £150+ to really improve on what's in with the price.

Just when you post was making good sense... you came out with that howler! :-(

Could you try to be more constructive rather than just rude?

I wasn't being rude. I thought it was quite restrained bearing in mind how extreme a statement you had made

The thought that a graphics card has to cost 150 quid is just plain comical!

You miss the condition: to make a real improvement over the G31integrated graphics. A £50 card won't do better. If you want to run modern games at high resolution ]it's going to cost you.

I would have thought nothing about this machine is going to be remotely interesting to a gamer anyway, least of all the cheap motherboard! I am a big fan of pre built systems as a way of getting a good value PC now it is no longer economical to build them yourself, but it seems to me this is exactly how NOT to get a good games machine!
However a card costing less than about 50 quid (of which many get mentioned on here frequently) will allow blistering use for all sorts of graphically intensive PC use, including many mainstream games, and free up the processor for other things. Me personally, I have stuck with my onboard graphics, and plenty of system RAM as I do nothing more graphically intensive than edit the odd video file or picture.

Seeing as we are talking about a minuscule percentage of the users of PCs who do want a machine for leading edge gaming, it is as interesting to me, and most others here as cave painting - as we can see from the absence of interest! :-(
