Hello, Tom's Hardware.
I'm typing this out on a HP Pavilion dv7 laptop 3010so (which is crap).
I'm very interested in buying a new pc, a desktop, because I know it will have more power for a lower price + it should be upgradeable, instead of having to buy a brand new one.
This is the one I'm looking at (I'm not interested in building one myself. The contractor is in Denmark, and they make the pc's themselves, so no second party is involved): http://www.mm-vision.dk/produkter/vispcsystem.asp?actio...
The link is in danish, so I'll write down the things I think are important:
Price + Windows 7 Home Premium = 6694 DKK or 1143$.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H
CPU: i5-3570 4*3,40 GHz (turbo 3,8 GHz)
Ram: Kingston HyperX 8GB DDR3 1600
Harddrive (?): Seagate 1000 GB SATA3 6GB/s (7200rpm)
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX660 2GB DDR5
Powersupply: Raidmax RX-600AF
If needed be, I can (it'll cost, of course): double the RAM, get 1 or 2 TB more harddrive, a GTX670.
I use my pc for school work, surfing the web and having a bajillion tabs open (not kidding), movies, light gaming which will probably become some more serious gaming.
The only questions I can think of, are:
1) Is that a good set-up for the price? Considering I'm not willing to build it myself + live in Denmark.
2) (How should I work this) How easy will it be to upgrade parts? And how "long" can I go without needing to upgrade it (I know there is no definitive answer here )
