Just noticed this and even though its not the most amazing pc ever and you wont get high end gaming but its a pc that will play most games decently.

It comes with 2 free games (Latest Sim City and Farcry 3) so the pc must be more than capable to play these titles.

*To redeem your free copies of Far Cry 3 and SimCity, simply email the serial number of the desktop you receive to the following address, you will then be contacted with more details

Decent spec, but with no operating system, no keyboard / mouse and no USB 3.0 it's about the right price in my opinion. The 250w power supply will also be cheap and noisy

Yep, i think so too. Its a decent spec and can play the games it comes with and a few more without issues.

I better psu and maybe an SSD and its flying.

May as well just build your own.

Have to watch out with this they haven't matched slow RAM with the APU. If they have as with other Zoostorm APU machines I've noticed then graphics and processing speed will be compromised effectively wasting the APU on some junk parts.

The A55 motherboard chipset does not bode well for the machine as far as I am aware this is best suited to A6 APUs and below.

Good value but likely designed by an accountant and not somebody who is a PC enthusiast.

It looks a good deal at first but it really isn't great. It's a fairly decent machine for the average user but other than a pretty capable APU, everything else is quite weak. Windows is a good chunk of money to add to the cost and i hate that we're starting to get these stupid cash back schemes that are so common in the states.

I agree with wants been said , zoostorm (and most are built PC companies) suck, it seems like a good price until you break it down
As a internet browsing /email machine its way over what you'd need
And as a media / gaming rig it is under spec and in upgradable ,unless you want to pair that apu with a and GPU (which would give pretty decent performance) for which you'd have to replace the PSU (which will probably give issues within 12-24 months anyway)
Then there is the cheap motherboard and the cheap and probably low spec ram ........seriously build something yourself its not hard and the PC may cost a bit more but will be (especialy if you research a tiny bit) more reliable and future upgradable
This PC has lots of numbers that sound good so they can put them on the box in big letters to make everyone who knows nothing about it think its amazing

There is an element of 'may as well build your own' about most desktop PCs in the market place. I have a similar one from Zoostorm and it's fine. I was always aware that if I wanted a graphics card, I would have to add the cost of a replacement PSU to the hundred or so that a noticeably better one would cost. But I don't want to play CoD-whatever-they're-up-to-now on it, and it does Source engine games fine, while being quiet and fast.

I also got it with no OS. The trial version of Win7 was there long enough to upgrade the BIOS (the m/b manufacturer thinks that providing Windows only utilities is sufficient) and since then, it's had Linux Mint.

Ordered this on monday and it arrived today.
I challenge someone to build a similar machine for the price (don't forget the games + cashback i.e that for around £230)

Admittedly I'll be moving my GFX card and PSU to this one, but it's a decent gaming PC, if not an "enthusiast" one and will fit 99% of uses.

Exactly, i mean come on noisy desktop??? try living with an xbox 360 that vibrates on top of your desk while your playing a gaming (while reading the disk).
This will be a computer for alot of people, just needs a cheap copy of windows 7 on it and sorted.

Oh actually it's extremely quiet when you lower the minimum fan speed in the UEFI or use the smart CPU fan control in the MSI ControlCentre (windows only )
