I'm looking to buy a gaming computer for about £500/£600. Most people seem to recommend building it yourself but I am very cautious as to buying all the individual parts and fitting them myself and any online site I find that lets you customise your computer seem to be overpriced.
That's why I've resorted to looking at prebuilt computers. I've found one for £550 with these specs:
AMD FX 4170 AM3+ Quad Core 4.2Ghz
1 TB Serial ATA Hard Drive
8 GB DDR3 1600 PC 12800 Memory
ATI HD 7850 2gb GDDR5 PCI-E Graphics Card With HDMI
24 X DVDRW
Windows 7 included
I know it doesn't look amazing, but is it ok for my price range and will it be able to run top-end games (such as Crysis if that is still good)?
My biggest worry is the CPU as it is an AMD FX. Will this actually be a problem and could I just put in an inel i5 easily?
