my son is loving it for his gaming (but could do with a graphic card update in the near future) and it is ideal for multi tasking as the machine is fast...only let down with this model is only having one pci slot for upgrading would have preferred at least 2 or 3 ...also was sent out a dongle for wifi instead of built-in card but found the dongle to be faster (150)...the size of the hard drive 2tb just blew me away ample room for everything ..the 8gb of ddr3 ram will keep this machine running fast and smooth no need to upgrade here......lastly my son first installed windows 7 x32 and it worked perfectly on his 42 inch plasma ..but as soon as he upgraded to windows 7 x64 the plasma would not receive a signal but worked fine on a dedicated pc monitor. All in all an ideal first time gaming machine. (the reason i only gave it 4 stars is the lack of pci slots)
The PC arrived quickly and represents great value for such a powerful PC. 64 Bit operating system installed with no problems. I had a problem with the graphics card, which the seller, initially (and quickly) offered solutions I could try. At the same time an offer of a replacement was offered.
This blip does not affect my rating as graphics cards are prone to being difficult. Eventually I decided it needed to be replaced. I received a personal phone call from the seller and a replacement was despatched the same day. All is now fine. I now have a powerful and very quiet PC.
Buyer confidence is vital and this seller ticks all the right boxes. Friendly, efficient and helpful. Recommended.
This machine is an excellent gaming machine and very good value for money.
If you are looking for a powerful machine that will run the most modern of games smoothly at a budget price then I highly recommend this machine. Having owned several gaming machines that have cost far more than this particular model I would say in terms of value and performance this is certainly the best.
The machine is very light and easy to move. The casing is very light and is a little bit fragile but as long as you look after it I don't see this being an issue. The fan also can be a little loud but nothing out of the usual and certainly shouldn't put you off for the price advertised.
Please note that you do need to install an OS for the machine and load it up so if purchasing you'll need a copy of Windows (Windows 7 probably the most useful due to most up to date drivers). Its very straight forward and you just place the disk in and it will start the installation. Also note that you must install a 64bit edition as 32bit limits you to only 3GB of RAM where this machine offers 8GB RAM.
I received this just 2 working days after I ordered it, and it was packed in perfectly. I had a few questions, so I called the customer service and the respondent was terrific, he told me everything I need to know, and really friendly. I haven't tried the product yet, as I'm waiting for the OS which was supposed to be delivered yesterday by the crummy dispatchers, but it's bound to be good!
