How good is this computer build? Tags: Prebuilt Systems Last response: January 10, 2013 2:14 PM in Systems Share Twuigs January 10, 2013 12:12:11 PM So as far as I can tell it seems ok but I've only recently started to look into all this. It's for a little under £700 which I think is pretty good. I should probably state it is for gaming. Anyone got any advice? CPU: 2085 - NEW!

The 7950 will eat the gtx660 for breakfast. | Report abuse Reply to tiny voices Related ressources Is this a Good Computer Build ? - Forum Could someone tell me how good my computer would be for gaming? - Forum Is my computer build good ?

That machine is massively better than the one you are looking at except it has a psu that can only supply 400 usable watts, a really basic board, and a case that i would consider not as good as the z11 | Report abuse Reply to TheBigTroll tiny voices January 10, 2013 2:09:06 PM If you are concerned about the PSU then get the pro550w XFX PSU. Also, There is space enough left in the budget for a different motherboard. | Report abuse Reply to tiny voices ittimjones January 10, 2013 2:14:50 PM Definitely go w/ cooler master hyper 212 | Report abuse Reply to ittimjones Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>How good is this computer build?> Related ressources: ForumHow good is this gaming build ?
