that is the computer in question. Now I am a gamer and would need a computer to handle todays games as well as the ones coming out in the future. Now with a 300w power supply powering the graphics card would it hold up and perform or not. Also if anyone would happen to know or be able to find out what mobo the motherboard is and the ram as i have been unable to find it.
I'm not sure why they supplied it with only 300w when the minimum would be 450w, at least for the ATI Radeon 5750. with 300w, you'll be sharing it with Monitor, Fans, and such which would be much less for the card.
As for the motherboard my best guess would be its just a normal gateway type motherboard. Memory would also be the typical dual channel DDR3, not gaming type ram. This is as far as I got to any real information.
I wouldn't run it without upgrading the power supply. I can't believe they would ship a computer with anything but integrated graphics let alone an ATI 5750 in it with only a 300Watt psu. Even as it stands that PSU is going to be stressed and likely to fail early on as a result. a good solid 500Watt should be plenty, The antec Earthwatts would be a good option if the case will house a standard ATX PSU.
I'll have to look at everything and discuss it with my wife. I also have to figure out a monitor and everything seeing as i'm kinda starting from scratch. Right now we are sharing her laptop and its just not gonna cut it for much longer. Thanks for the reply's, i appreciate the help.
Not sure if the actual system would reflect the pictures or not, but if you zoom in on the power supply in one of the pictures its rated 450Watt/500Watt peak which would be sufficient. It also does look as though its a standard ATX mounting PSU.
I would also recommend building it yourself as you will get much better components for the money, as well a system more suited to gaming. Unfortunately Jack's build will cost over $1000 once you add an OS and that's even before considering peripherals and a monitor. So I here is a cheaper build that will still be plenty for gaming, with some upgrade potential if you choose:
