  1. It is a decent build, however you could do much better by building your own computer and save more money. Also do you really need two dvd drives? Part of your money is being wasted since this pre-assembled build uses a CPU with an integrated GPU and then they replace it with a HD 7850. The integrated GPU costs more money than a CPU without a GPU around the same performance. If you ask me it will be a smooth running desktop but I do not like the fact there are parts that in here not really necessary.
  2. Hi, yes the CPU was the only one offered online with this build. The person buying wants two DVD drives. They do offer several Gpu's. any suggestions?
  3. Oh, this build is for someone else? Okay what is your price range for the video card/ GPU? Also what is available? If there is a limited selection of video cards we can see which one is the best.

    Sorry, lots to choose from. something decent. not too familiar with what is a good card. thanks
  5. Too bad, they add money (lots of) for upgrading your video card. I would just say stick with the HD 7850 as it still is good for gaming.
  6. appreciate it thanks!
  7. One more question. Is this card good for smooth video? Gaming isn't too important.
  8. Absolutely yes, it is good for smooth video. When it comes to gaming you can make it smoother as well by lowering resolution if it is not smooth at first.
