I was thinking about buying this custom built pc from DinoPC.

Specs:

OS: Windows 7 64-bit

Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1090t Black Edition

Ram: 8GB DDR3 1333mhz (2x 4GB)

Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB

How will this pc do in gaming?

How reliable is DinoPc?

and is it worth changing the graphics card to ATI Radeon HD 6950 2GB?

More about : good gaming

OK, it will ahndle all games depending on what resolutions your going to be playing at, We also need to no the price of said PC with the gtx560ti and then the price with the ATI 6950 2GB card?

Also full specs would be good including Mobo type, or even better a link to Dino PC website with the afore mentioned PC for sale.

I only have a 1280x1024 monitor but I will soon be getting a 1920x1080 monitor.

The price with the GTX 560 ti 1gb is £612.90

The price with the ATI Radeon 6950 2gb is £646.10

The full specs for the pc is:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 black edition

OS: Windows 7

MoBo: Gigabyte 870A-USB3L (can change this to Asus M5A87)

Ram: 8th ddr3 1333Mhz (2x4gb)

Hard drive: 500gb S-ATAIII 6.0GB/S

Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1gb or ATI Radeon hd 6950

Case: Xigmatek Asgard

PSU: 500W Xigmatek (I won't be overclocking or upgrading for a while so I'll buy a bigger PSU when I decide to upgrade.)

If you decide on either resolutions greater than 1920x1080 or multiple monitors in the future, the 2gb of vram will help in that situation. Otherwise, I would go with the 560Ti. The system listed should be able to run pretty much everything, and is fairly balanced.

Okay thank you and sorry to ask another question but what settings will this be able to play on fallout: new Vegas and I know it's not out yet so nobody knows the specs yet but could anyone predict what settings I could play on skyrim? Thanks again.

Most likely you will be able to max them both out

Would you consider a self build, if you could buy better components for the same price or the same for less?
August 8, 2011 12:53:38 AM

I would consider it but then again I don't know much about building pcs as I'm only 14 and my Dad doesn't really have time to build one.

Well both those PCs are pretty well specced out, For your needs with your future monitor upgrade you will be fine with the gtx560ti, you could also look to unlocking the huge OC potential of your CPU and buy a decent CPU cooler for your PC.

I guess we have our own preferences, but one has to be an AMD enthusiast to consider even that Phenom 2 X6, when it appears that the Intel Core I SandyBridge CPU's give out a lot more.

The one thing I give AMD is the pricing, six cores for what 2120 costs is great value.

Indeed the intel enthusiasts on here would scream at me, as i have
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7 Socket 1155 Motherboard, i72600k all set up on my test bench and all i use it for is testing different Linux OS,s and overclocking fun.

Where as my actual main gaming PC is an AMD 1090t OCd to 4GHZ, for some unexplainable reason i just prefer AMD, i think maybe because there the underdog? I suppose i see intel a bit like a German Car, BMW, always performing flawlessly, excellently and beating most if not all rivals but has no character, where as AMD is a bit like an old British sports car say a Jaguar E Type, needs love and attention to get the best out of it and full of character. Or maybe like the RAF(AMD) against the Luftwaffe(Intel) during the Battle of Britain, the RAF being both the numbers and technical underdog but still fighting to the bitter end. Agh yes i do love to back an underdog, anyway enough of my babble now.

I was wondering if this is better and would change my gaming performance that much. Its the exact same specs as the one i mentioned earlier except instead of an intel core i5 2500, it has an intel core i5 2500k overclocked to 4.7Ghz for only £13 more making it £625. Will this increase my gaming performance a lot ?
August 8, 2011 2:04:20 PM

OH yes, indeed it will, but to be honest not that you would notice in games, as you need higher resolutions and a more powerfull gpu for that extra cpu power to be utilized, but for an extra £13 you would be daft not to take it.

Poor old AMD, beaten by that efficient yet characterless German BMW(Intel) again.
Roll on Bulldozer.
