Couldnt agree more. Bought one last year from them, added an ssd and more ram (Cex was dirt cheap) and got myself a lovely entertainment pc.
Coming from an Athlon x2 I bought the i5-2400 last week from Itzoo which knocks socks off it. Happy with my purchase although it was laggy due to RAM but I had a spare 4GB stick. I'd an unexpected £12 surcharge to NI which wasn't made clear on the site.

Wish I'd have waited for this deal but there's never a right time to buy, I'm sure next week will produce something better.

Can anyone recommend a graphics card for my machine? I develope Android, play a little online poker and a little gaming (free games given away on Steam mostly!) so not that power hungry.

The Motherboard isn't on uk.pcpartpicker.com and I can't find any info other than it needs a low profile card.

For what you described I don’t think you need a graphics card. The motherboard will only have basic PCI slots so the gfx card wouldn’t work at full speed anyway. Then there will also be the lack of a 4 pin connector on the PSU.
They would take a 1050ti

This is not correct, the motherboard will have a 16x PCIe port. So grabbing a half decent passive low-profile gfx card along with a decent SSD is a must if you want a 4k/x265 media centre / kodi that runs super smooth and plays anything you chuck at it :-)

This is not correct. To get a passive card to run 4K video it needs to be more than half decent which means it will need PCI 2.0 maybe 3.0. This will of course cost more money making the project less viable from a monetary sense. You’ve also got the standpoint of spending X hundred pounds to then stream ‘4k’ on Kodi. Not ta.

By hackintosh standards this one is easy to run Mac os on.

I've done it on a couple 8300.

Thanks for your comment, I've always wanted to have a go at building a hackintosh, and this will allow me to dip my toe. Is there any thing else that is essential or would make the final results more smooth/satisfying?

Anyone know what the memory configuration (and speed) of these machines is?
2x4GB with 2 free slots?

Also is the PSU really up to powering a 1050?
Reviews seem to indicate it comes with only a 240W/250W unit.

Answered all my questions, and much more:

I have the K (unlocked) version of the i5 3570 in my gaming PC overclocked to 4.3GHz and it has started to become a bottleneck sometimes when I multitask but is still a beast. That alone set me back £150 in 2012. Throw a SSD in this machine and you'll have a decent runner
Bought two for £65 each on ebay (no warranty, no win). Put a gt1030/1050/1050ti in and you have a decent gaming machine for a low budget. My nephews love them:)

Nah... Gtx 1050ti OC runs just fine;) i get ~8500 in the Graphics Score which is 100% what it should be on:)
No add. 4 pin needed and you get the 1050s as low profile:)

Is that This one ? Also how easy would this be to install for someone who's never done it before? And would this replace the HDD or be in addition to the existing HDD? Thanks.

Super easy to install a SSD and you can have two drives. The SSD as boot & the HDD as storage/whatever. You might need to order a sata cable on ebay/amazon for 2-3£

That's correct my friend. In this system it would be a matter of opening up the side panel on the case and plugging in a SATA cable (you may need to buy one on Amazon - about 50p) and connecting the power to the HDD (It will all be very obvious when you look inside the computer).

Then you just need to transfer your Windows to the SSD. Here's an example guide of how to do it:

Many more are available though.

PCIe 3.0 pre-dates the 3570 so I doubt it will be an issue. Stop posting nonsense.

Will this setup run Rome 2, shotgun 2 and possibly atilia total war. I'm not interested in super graphics and just want the game to load and play ok.
Can sell it on for near cost when I'm readdy to buy something decent.
Be sure to put the latest firmware on these, otherwise boot time is unbearable slow following the latest Microsoft/Intel micro code updates.

All info required on these PC's can be found on the HP website. You can download data sheets for features and specs. I have been buying this style of HP PC for over ten years for media around the house add a £15 graphics cards and they are brilliant! Real workhorses never had one die on me yet as they are designed for the workplace and to be on pretty much all the time.

I've read about a low profile GTX 1050t but as there's no motherboard specs I wasn't sure. The 1050 card costs twice as much as the machine so it's a no goer. I'm looking something under £50, just so as I can run an emulator and possibly add a 2nd monitor. I've already opened the machine to install the RAM, things are tight in there! An SSD is my next move, transferriing the OS will probably be another.

Overall this is a great machine, it's whizzing now with the extra RAM and the O/P deal won't need this (plus a faster processor). Great workhorses (which is what I wanted).

I have a similar spec system with a GTX 1030 which plays 4K HDR content perfectly. The 1030 was about £50.

Are graphics cards less strict than processors? As long as it's low profile will it work?

Would anything from this list work? uk.webuy.com/sea…asc

Games are less important, a 2nd monitor would be handy as would running an emulator I need (although I dev on real devices so a graphics card is not essential). Cheaper is better imo.

I'm just thinking out loud what would improve my machine. I've an SSD in another machine I can butcher (where I got my RAM from) but I'll probably buy a new 120GB SSD for this for quicker booting and read/ writing first.
If you update the firmware, add a cheap GTX card and a wif card I’m fairly sure these can be Hackintoshed. I got the tower version of this PC I’m sure and I did that to mine
