  1. It wont run anything it has no graphics card just integrated graphics (well ok it may run some things at lowest quality and unplaable frame rates)

    The CPU (FX quadcore) is junk.

    None of the parts are brand named so will be cheapest available junk..... "high performance motherboard" = cheap crap theres no legal definition of that term for you to demand a refund about.

    The PSU is no name so will likely be cheap junk.

    No windows so just to use it add £75 for windows.

    Avoid these DIY builders on Ebay they sell cheapley made junk mostly to unsuspecting buyers.
  2. You can build it yourself for exactly £299.04 from parts on CCL computers

    *edit*

    Do you have a budget? and are you prepared to self build? (its really easy I promise). If so let us know the budget and we can help you :)
  3. im a crap at computers hardware mate i dont understand nothing im not joking and i cant spend more than 400£ and with this money i just want a desktop that will support any game in the market without giving me any problem basically sounds that i want a dream desktop for free ahah but if you can help me mate cause im with a piece of junk laptop
  4. ok. £400 pre built we wont find anything stunning thats going to max games out but we can get a base to work off. Do you need monitor/keyboard/speakers?

    Thats £399.98

    Still has the crumby FX CPU but it at least has an entry level Graphics Card and its from a proper company you can go firebomb shout at if it breaks. Point to note it doesnt have windows so you need to add £68 for that (buy an OEM windows for £68 on the website and install yourself dont add windows to the PC options it costs more if you do.)

    Here is the similar setup same price using an Intel i3. The CPU is again a little weak but is argueably better than the FX.

    Same score with windows on that one.

    Both those sytems are ENTRY level. They will run everything but not at great ultra settings. If you cant pip to these systems i would suggest you save up a little longer.

    Personally I would recommend the 2nd Intel system there. It has a better upgrade route. In the future you could drop an i5 CPU in there to upgrade. Either system could have the GPU upgraded easily in the future.
  8. If your willing to self build though you could do this

    That would set you back £442 and is far better than the pre built systems.... Just a thought if you fancy building yourself :D
  9. i gonna trust in you. are theses hardware all good? and it sounds that i can save more and get better building myself a computer so what you think? im i gonna have errors with it or will i be fine with it?
  10. The Motherboard is a good brand but at their budget end

    RAM is good brand

    Case is Cheap and acceptable

    The CPU is very good (this is why i tried to claw back £ on the case and mobo)

    The Graphics card I use right now. It is entry level but will handle anything you throw at it.

    The HDD i tried to balance price and size

    The Power Supply is good and efficient

    Windows is Windows :)

    The DVD is the most basic cheap one I could find all you need it for is to install stuff. I concentrated the budget on a good CPU and entry level gaming graphics card.

    As to building it really its easy i promise. Theres loads of videos on youtube showing how but in a nutshell. You sit the CPU on the mobo along with its cooler, screw mobo in to PC case, slide in HDD and DVD, Screw in PSU, stick in graphics card. Connect wires (the mobo will come with a guide for this), turn it on and install windows. Then grab a beer and enjoy handiwork :)
  11. but you would be better off saving a bit more and buying this
