HP Desktop Computer

Hey guys! I had a question what do you guys think about this computer?
1) http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/pd/HP-Pavilion-HPE-h9-1182-Phoenix/productID.247935700/vip.true

I'm going to be using it to do a bit of gaming, for example... Runescape, Minecraft, Warcraft III. Could you tell me if it's a good deal? Also, what would it be able to run? Thanks! Also... I was thinking if i get it i could add a SSD, would HP let me do that without the warranty being voided?

  1. It's good for prebuilt, but if you're buying for gaming you really DON'T need 16 GB ram, 8 GB is max and even 4 GB i good nowadays!
  2. For the price it isn't bad but you could do much better for the money if yo build yourself. Also, there is no difference at all in gaming with an i7 vs. an i5. An i7 only shines out on video editing and things like that. Also as stated above, 16gb or RAM is overkill. The most you could ever need for gaming is 8. Last, the graphics card will be able to run modern games on medium settings. For the same budget if you build yourself you could get a graphics card which is 2 or 3 times more powerful.
  3. Nice PC. The CPU will be state of the art for a while. The video card is OK, not great. Will play most/all games but not at highest settings. The PC will support you adding a great video card any time you feel like it. Not a bad choice.

  6. That computer is ok and will play games at medium settings and some high settings. You could do twice this good for less money however.

    It says " ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Antec Three Hundred Illusion ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports." Is there any other case you recommend? Also, the CPU cooler could it be a little better? Thanks!
  10. Just pick any case that you like which has USB 3.0 ports on the front panel. Also, This cooler is very good for the money bu this one is also very good. One of the better air, coolers you can buy. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018
