  1. Entry level computer,you will be able to play modern day games such as watch dogs,battlefield 4 etc. on average 40-50fps low settings,I'd recommend getting gpu first,ram is easy to get later,and not that essential in gaming.
  2. That looks like a pretty fair price for a prebuilt computer considering it has an i5.
  3. in low to medium gfx and in some games high by turning off or lowering the msaa and shadows...
  4. This is really poor, they are trying to sell of their old stuff because of the haswell refresh... I mean H81? Are they fucking kidding me?

    And no, it will not run rome 2 medium to high, unless you want to set a "minecraft" resolution.

    It is and an H81 motherboard is perfectly fine.

    Haswell 1150 boards came out one year ago and are the newest available slot for Intel. Are you trying to troll or do you not know anything about Intel? Stop telling him it's old when it's the newest socket.

  9. What I'm saying is that if he's going for old, then he might as well go for FX-8350.
