    itl run some games smoothly, wouldnt trust it with black ops tho as its very MEMORY hungry. id recommend about 4gb. whats your price range? as you can build a very good gaming pc for around £400-£500.

    seriously tho building a pc is far better.

    I very much doubt it

    At full spec? No.
    At low specs? Possibly...

    With that system it appears you are paying extra for the design and small casing rather than the performance of the components.

    For around £380-£400 you can build a system with a quad core processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM and a better graphics card.

    with that kinda money you could get a nice board, i5 processor. 4gb of corsair ram. a 460 as there dropping like flys and a nice case/psu.

    if i get time after these warcraft quests il link you some parts

    my advice is to not buy the one u have linked, not worth it and it WONT play latest games at decent frame rates

    Thanks!!, is there any sites i can get it built for me just i have no idea

    Dragon age will run on it according to this review but just very badly and on low settings.

    This would be a good PC for the money if you build it yourself, 3for the money you want to spend i would go for the AMD as its better then the i5 and on par with low to mid range i7 and for doing lots of things at once its better then the intel, I think, the intel comes into its own for other things.

    To be honest all these sites which allow you to build up from their base unit will stiff you on prices as they need to make a profit. You are better off making it yourself and asking for help with anything you are unsure of on here or on HUKD. People like to be helpful as it gives them a warm/superior feeling inside.

    See Chuckles1001 just proved my point

    Dam thanks for the time and effort,

    So building is myself, what do i need? tools? screws? or does most of it clip together lol im total novice.

    mate if u wanna save the hassle buy a prebuilt one and just shove in a decent graphics card

    £550 will buy you a very very good pc

    The suggestions here are about right.
    Incidentally the computer Chuckles1001 suggested would be about £869 on dell. it might look a bit nicer but it won't run any better or have room for expansion.

    What all these guys said ^
    That PC will struggle with almost all new games (and what PC doesn't lag with Black Ops )

    Thanks Trog1, for the comments

    OP all you need is a normal philips screwdriver and a small one, everything els eyou will get in the boxes of parts, you can get a nicer screwless case, but i dont like them tbh. Also this is a very good Setup, and you wont get this anywhere prebuild for less then £200 more then what i just said and as trog1 said even more from a big brand like dell
