I'm looking at a refurbished desktop on newegg.com but i cant find any reviews for the desktop. I was wondering if anyone knows if this is a good computer for gaming?
Is it a good deal for the specs that it has?

Brand: Asus
Model: DTASCM6730US010

branded ones tend to cheap out whenever they can, they will give you like 250w of psu if they can get away with it.gives you more headache down the road when you decide to upgrade.

I would say it's a good deal. It's only a mid range PC, but you can always upgrade the components you need more performance from. You won't be able to max out modern games, but you should be able to run them with a decent FPS.

You can build a better PC for $600 with a fine tuned selection of components that match exactly what you need, but for someone that might not want to build their own; it's pretty good.

Think of it like adult Lego. With a couple hours and the instruction book, anyone can do it.

There are heaps of videos on how to do it online, plus lots of what you need is in the instructions that come with the components. Try getting help from a friend who knows what their doing.

However, if you really don't want to go into learning how to build, going down to a local tech store can help, a lot of places can custom build you a system depending on what you need. You do pay more for it, but it's a lot less worry.

I just don't have the time to do either, would be awesome to have a techy boyfriend right about now haha. Of the model i posted though, its not intended for hardcore gaming, i know that. But what about something that doesnt need a high end desktop? Say, league of legends for example. Would this refurbished desktop be worth the price of $600?
