No real budget. Just posted a trade of a ps3 and 360 with kinect and move +++.

I got this offer and just was considering it.

You can play but at low - medium fps. Depends on the video card what is in that XPS8300.

More Information





Hello,

First off just wanted to say this is a great site and ive used it before on help with a dell xps 1550 laptop.
My question is this, Im looking to privately buy a dell xps 8300.
Ive read some forums on recalled MOBO's or sandy bridge recalls. Im looking to get rid of my ps3,360 and hopefully upgrade to a decent gaming machine. Ive picked this machine because of a straight up trade.

Here is the info he provided.

Intel® Core™ i5-23200M (processor 3.0 GHz/6MB cache); 6GB2 DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHZ - 4 DIMMs (16Gb Max), 1 TB HDD, ATI Radeon™ HD 6450 1GB DDR3, Integrated 7.1 with THX® TruStudio PC™sound, Dell 1520 WLAN PCIe card with11n mini-Card & internal antenna, Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64-Bit, English

It was purchased almost a year ago but never used, plastic is still on the computer.

I understand I can upgrade. I dont claim to have any experience with computers, although I have been researching and hould be able to absorb most of your much appreciated feedback/suggestions.

Thanks again.

It looks good. For a good gaming experience you need to upgrade the video card.

So out of the box what level could I play crysis on? What card would you suggest?

Depend on your monitor resolution.
To upgrade the video card you need to know what power supply have ( wattage).

460 w doesnt sound high

With that wattage , without changing the power supply the best option for a video card is 6790.

Power doesnt seem expansive, I see a 700 w for $50 plus the $200 graphics card isn a bad upgrade

the 6450 in that xps is 1 generation newer than the graphics cards in the xbox and ps3 so the computer is not going to be looking that much more amazing than the newest xbox and ps3 titles. But...at the same time - you could trade those xbox/ps3/kinect and get the laptop and then sell the laptop and then make your own budget beast. A good computer can be had for sub $1000 these days and are leaps and bounds above all the capabilities of the consoles.

Thanks, I think Im going to go ahead with the trade, try the machine, see what I can out of it and then upgrade if Im not happy.

I really appreciate the help, I feel more confident going ahead with this.
