Hi all - I'm looking to buy a gaming desktop - and I think I have found a perfect one but would love a second or third opinion.

it seems like a good price for what it is (or am I missing something??)
 
I'm a complete novice when it comes to gaming computers so any help would be appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance

It's not a bad rig for what you want, however you would save a bit of money building it yourself rather than buying it outright like that. I placed every part into this configuration substituting a few that weren't specified and the price still came under what was listed.

To save you the currency conversion: $549.69=502.78 euro

I don't think that's a bad buy. The chip is good, the ram speed is too. Card isn't bad. You get a GB mobo and enough USB 3.0 ports. Chipset is basic I think but don't know if they cheap out on the PSU. But with a 3 yr warranty - w/covers the drive and everything else it seems reasonable. Still, you could always save and build yourself. I know some who've taken that route for years that now don't bother but I wouldn't if I were getting dell quality parts inside. Nice looking case by the way.

I would do a bit of research as to their warranty, what other's experience has been.

Ticks most of the boxes for me. Solid CPU and GPU. Power supply looks adequate. Gigabyte is a good motherboard maker. You should be able to run a lot of games at full screen 1080p resolution with (say) a 24 inch monitor.

It's interesting

Thanks for the help...

That gaming desktop looks good. Good processor, good graphics at a reasonable price. However, as post #3 says building your pc will get you more for less. Your choice.

I hope, I'm not really late for this reply. Anyway, I guess for a gaming laptop, I agree with you. Everything is in there as requirements for a gaming laptop. Good graphics, processor and very reasonable price. By the way, see to it also that  the  video card must have its own memory on board.
