Hi Magnarider,

 

Can you explain what you mean by telling you more? 

 

Regards,

Daniel.

Man-1n-Black no need to condescend, but i will agree it probably wasn't the smartest purchase.  Can you return it? We can recommend you something at a better price to performance ratio.

 

Regards,

Daniel.

I wasnt being condescending, i was shocked, i could put this unit together and ship it anywhere in the world for less than half that. Im sorry if it came off the wrong way but i hate scammers like that and i hate seeing people taken by the scams, i see it all the time in my line of work. To me the only option is to try and return it - good luck.

Oh No Thats not the price I paid for it. Sorry about that. That was the only web link that I could find to fit the description of the computer. I paid 250 for a computer like that. Any thoughts or ideas?

 

Thanks.

Magnarider,

 

Again, what exactly are you looking for when you say "any thoughts or ideas?" You've already payed for the item and have it. If you're wondering if it's a good deal then $250 USD for the parts you've listed seems good. A full parts list might help a bit more. Also, is there anything else you're wondering besides if it's a good buy?

 

Regards,

Daniel.

I just wondered if it was a good buy. I bought it on EBAY. I dont think the seller knew much about it I will find out more about it when its delivered this week. Will it be good for games?

Sounds good. As far as how good it will be for games, i think it will run online games fine. More graphic intensive games will probably put stress on the CPU, so i'd recommend considering an inexpensive GPU (video card) for the computer. What games do you plan on playing?

 

Regards,

Daniel.

Dark souls 2- So you would upgrade the video card and not the processer?

Yes a better performing video card is more important than the processor for games. It's not needed as much for other computer tasks like web browsing and many programs, but if you want to play graphic intensive games, especially AAA titles, it becomes very important. If you want smooth frame rates, higher video quality for the game, and an overall better gaming experience then i'd say invest in one.

Check out the link, it should give you an idea of the system requirements you want. I'd say something between minimum and recommended is okay.

 

Regards,

Daniel.

Look for a card with 2 gigs or better in your price range.
