Hi Everyone,

 

I am searching for a new computer since my old one is slowly dying. I have found one that I think should do fine but i'm not so sure yet. 

 

I use my computer for games. Don't really know what type since I play a variety of different ones. I tend to have a lot of programs open at the same time or running in the background and I like to switch between them quite often. 

 

The computer I found has the following specs:

 

Processor AMD FX-6300

NVidia GeForce GTX 650 2GB DDR5

Ram 8GB DDR3 1600MHz

1 TB disk space

 

Is this a good computer that will last long and can survive the coming few years so I don't have to buy a new one in let's say 4 years? I recently took a mortgage so I don't want a too high price computer. This one is currently for a rather nice price but I want to know if this is alright or not.

 

Thanks in advance for the advice and tips

Hi, it's a pretty decent system except for the graphics card which is so-so in performance and possibly will not last 4 years, depending on the resolution you will be gaming at.

Thanks for the quick reply killerx. So what kind of graphic card would you recommend? Would a NVidia GeFore GTX 750Ti 2GB DDR5 suffice? I don't know that much about graphic cards in general.

The GTX 750TI would be a nice choice for the performance to power ratio and depending on the resolution, it should do a pretty good job at 720P resolution.

Build your own. What's your budget? I'll put together something for you on PCpartpicker.

Hello Mistersprinkles,

 

I live in Poland and my budget would come around 1800 zloty, which is 590.89 $ or 434.35 euro. That is not much I know but I did find the above mentioned specs with it.

 

*Edit*

 

Being a bit over budget is not a problem.

Can you send me a link to a Polish parts retailer?

You can try Allegro, it's not only selling parts for laptops and computers, but here you can find some nice things. http://allegro.pl/

Do you need a copy of Windows? If you need a copy of Windows included in the budget it'll really reduce the quality of the parts I can use.

No, this budget is only for the parts of the computer.
