Best for the price

Before I start the review please PLEASE ignore the 2 star review by Michael Bharrat
I bought this pc probably about 2 months ago now, after I had been saving up for over 2 years. I did plan on building my own pc but I didn't have enough time and I needed to get something quickly, after checking a handful of websites like :ebuyer, pc specialist and ebay I finally found this pc. Before buying I worked out and if you were to build this pc with all the same specs you would save about £20 but I was willing to pay that for the convenience.
Games I have played (with resolution of 1920x1080):
Farcry 3 - Maxed out settings
Crysis 2 - Nearly maxed out
Battlefield 3 - Maxed out (Ultra)
I have played TONS more and this pc has been more than capable of handling anything I have thrown at it but these were the most graphically intensive that I could think of.
I have noticed this pc can get reasonably loud when playing heavy games but it has got all the stock fans inside it so if that is a probably replacing the fans with silent ones would fix that problem.
Now to the looks of this computer, daaaaaaaaaaaamn its one fine machine. I am a huge fan of bitfenix cases because they always looks great and I always uber customizable for example on this case the green mesh stripes can be removed and you can purchase different coloured ones and same with the logo, so if green isn't your jam you can easily change that. The case is made of a lovely soft plastic but doesn't feel cheap at all. The one thing I do not like about the case is the windows shape, I wish it was just square and not a retarded triangular shape.
Overall I would recommend this pc it has impressed me a lot but if you are going to buy it don't forget that the motherboard does not have onboard wifi so unless you're using ethernet you have to get a dongle or install a wifi card into it if you want to use wifi - I used this http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-WN822N-300MBPS-Wireless-Adapter/dp/B00416Q5KI/ref=pd_sim_computers_5?ie=UTF8&refRID=07TTJS4TNQX98AJSM37C
