the ATI HD6450 1GB is barely better than integrated graphics

it will manage lower settings and resolutions on some games

oh right, i customized it so ill just put the nvidia one on haha, its now about £450+ :p

also, is the ATI Radeon 5450 1gb DDR3 with HDMI With Hyper Memory upto 2gb a good one?

i think thats aimed at small form factor media pcs

are you going to build it or buy it built for you?
January 13, 2013 11:43:09 PM

Buy it built
January 13, 2013 11:43:17 PM

if you could just build you own pc with AMD A8 Cpu that will run Minecraft easy with 40+ fps with no Graphics card cause it has an integrated one and if that not enough crossfire it with Radeon 6670 and you will get great FPS's for 2013 games!

buying it built puts the price up :( 

personally i dont buy new pcs on ebay only second hand ones

you never know if the seller will be there next week if you have a problem

if the amd integrated graphics are ok--not up on that side of things

then maybe something like this--though you need to add wireless yourself
January 13, 2013 11:53:28 PM

ok, i sorted it, im gonna get one thats £800 (: i spoke with my dad haha, he said ok but dont tell your sisters :p 
cheers guys, ill post if i need any help again haha

No. Period.

Wait, uhm, what? It'll be okay for minecraft, I suppose...

That being said:

1) The only reason your laptop can play bf3 on low settings is because of a very low screen resolution.

2) Especially with that new budget, please please PLEASE buy the parts and assemble them yourself. It's just like LEGOs for adults, and you'll get WAY better performance.

or do you need those as well for £800
