Final checks on HP computer Tags: Prebuilt Computer Hewlett Packard Systems Last response: August 12, 2012 3:38 AM in Systems Share Anonymous August 11, 2012 12:23:06 AM Now I have a final idea of I'm planning on doing. Is it a good deal, or what? Note that I can't build. i7-3770 8gb Ram 600w PSU 1 TB 7200 rom 2GB DDR3 AMD Radeon HD 7570 (Doesn't matter to much because I am planning on upgrading pretty soon) For $929, how is it? I know I could get a much better price if I built it or used ibuypower/cyberpower, but I don't want those options unless I'm REALLY getting ripped off. More about : final checks computer tsnor August 11, 2012 6:36:51 PM For gaming a build with LESS CPU is normally the correct balance. Assume you buy the above build then add $200 video card. Stepping down to an I5-3470 saves over $100. You then put the extra $100 towards video. An I5-3470 build with a $300 video card is measurably better for gaming than an i7-3770 with a $200 card. (If the purpose of the system is video editing then the i7 system makes sense) Anonymous August 11, 2012 9:02:27 PM Unfortunately, HP does not give those options, and I cannot build.

PSU is only 300w so your video choices are limited if you cannot swap a PSU to something like HD7770 -- a nice $135 card. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
