Hey there

on a pretty tight budget but i spotted something that was rather cheap but wanted an opinion
amd fx 6100 ( 6 cores ) at 3.3ghz per core
8Gb ddr3 ram
1 tb hard drive
windows 7

heres the link http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing ... =452422511

i will be upgrading the graphics card straight away nvidia gtx 550 ti or similar

Basicly just want it for mw3, bf3 and any similar games that will come around in the new few years or so, would this be suitable?

Thanks

well im always against pre built PCs because you dont know what hardware they fit in it and they usually sell it with an higher price tag but if you dont plan to build your own pc then this rig will be good enough once you'll add the 550 Ti. but be aware that if you will build your own rig/pay some 1 to build it for you, you would get a much better rig for a smaller price tag so take that into consideration :)

would a 550 ti or similar run a 32" or 26" tv?

the size of the screen doesnt matter at all, its the resulution that counts. but i believe it wont have any problem running those two.

Don't forget that most pre-built systems also have locked bios, so no overclocking.

+1 to above, build yourself or ask someone too.

Managed to get a bit more money and decided on this - http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing ... =454435978

Thoughts on this?

Thanks

I don't think that is very good at all. I don't know how much parts cost in NZ but compared to in US and Canada that is not a good deal at all. The 560 is a decent card but not for that price also the Windows is only a trial version. Plus the CPU is a 2600k in a H61 board which is pointless because you can't OC with a H61 board anyway.

I went through with it and bought it, but it seems parts over here can be damn expensive - i was going to OC but only when games require faster cpu then my i7, so i should be fine for the meanwhile, and as for the the trial windows 7 - ill buy a product key for $119 from microsoft.

What I am saying has nothing to do whether you want to OC or not. You cannot OC with the mobo. Period. I'm not saying you have to OC at all. In general you don't need to at all.
