Ordered Monday. Arrived Friday. From Germany. Astonishing. Thank you Bedir Shop.
Comes with windows 7 pre-installed. Boots to desktop at startup. There is no bloatware on this pc. It is a clean install. Register windows using the ID key off the supplied windows disk, then allow windows to go through its usual fraught and frenetic updates, then install your own preferred anti-virus and firewall as a bare minimum.
You will need an existing keyboard, mouse and a uk pc power lead, plus an appropriate lead to a display with either DVI or HMDI - or VGA using a DVI/HMDI to VGA adapter (I thought I saw a DVI to VGA adapter included in the box, but don't quote me on that). As this was a direct replacement for a retired game pc, the mouse, keyboard and display was just a straight swap out. Wireless lan is provided by an external plug in adapter, supplied in its own unopened small cellophane wrapped box. My lan was wired to the modem, so I didn't need it myself.
For a benchmark, running EQ2 at high quality resulted in a smooth and playable game experience. Still playable in very high quality, though some in-game settings will need a tweek. 8gb Ram allows the luxury of pushing performance to the limit, so turn off the paging file (memory dumps) to the hard drive because it is not needed. Two fans on the side and one at the front resulted in near whisper quiet operation, not the constant struggle of a jet engine noise.
Time will tell if the performance will live up to the near legendary lifespan of the retired 4 years old plus game pc, but so far well impressed.
For the price, for the delivery, for allowing games to be experienced in the best environment possible, this has to be best.
