Hey,

I'm trying to make my brother a decent low price PC, This is the best I came up with using this site (Dinopc.com)

CPU: AMD FX 4100 Black Edition
Operating System: Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte M68MT-S2
Memory: 4GB DDR3 1333mhz (1x 4GB)
Hard Drives: 500GB S-ATAII 3.0Gb/s
Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA
Graphics card: AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB
Sound card: Onboard 7.1 Audio
Case: EZCool Mesh ATX
PSU: 500W PSU
Warranty: 3 Year Bronze Warranty

All that for £357

He plays games like Call of duty and Skyrim and I was thinking of getting him Diablo 3... anyway will this PC be any good for those type of games?

Cheers

this is for about 200 more pounds but has a lot more quality components. your system seems to have a ton of cheap components other than the fx 4100

Not looking to spend more then £400 on my brother, should I just upgrade the RAM to 4GB 1600 corsair and maybe the graphics card and PSU?

An i3-2120 would do a better job at gaming for only £20 more.

For £24 more you can get a 7750 which will perform better while being cooler and less power consumption.

The RAM is really important.

What 500watt power supply is that? Don't get a crappy one that'll fail in a few weeks.

Make our RAM dual channel. Get a 2x2gb kit instead of just one stick of 4gb.

Ok would anyone be willing to use this website www.dinopc.com to make a gaming computer for me for around £380-£400 just so I can get it pre-built and sent to me instead of having to make it myself?

Thanks alot to anyone who does :)

the pcs at stock configuration look like they are going to blow up. trust me and dont get prebuilts

i managed to build it a bit cheaper

should perform resonably well without blowing up. you cant cut any corners here on. also building a pc is pretty easy. if i, a 14 year old can do it, you can too

Hi I have 380 - 400 £'s and I want a basic gaming rig (I am 12 and learning to build a pc myself but thats another story)
I want at least 8gb ram
1tb storage although could go down to 500gb
quad core (not bothered whether AMD or intel)
A good PSU
Decnet cooling system
1GB ATi Radeon 6670
I know its a lot for the monay and I pretty much have it sorta configured but please review this

Mainly looking if anyone can build me a better one or review the one I am looking at

you should have started up your own thread. first of all, i dont think the system that you were thinking about (the website) is very good for the price. i would suggest you just save up your allowance or something for now until you reach the 800 dollar mark.for 800 dollars you can do so much more. Dont worry, im 14 and building is a breeze

yeah my allouwance isnt much and I sorta need it quick

if you can still find one, a gtx 460 is a great choice over the 6670
