I'm no expert in PC terminology, but the specs look incredibly high for the price. I know a hand built PC might drop the price 2 or 3 hundred, but I really can't be bothered.

GPU is crap. HDD is slow and a nonk processor. It's certainly nothing mind blowing, but is salvageable with a new GPU and SSD, however, there's a good chance that the PSU is bare minimum.

1100 for something that doesn't even contain a proper graphics card = hell no

If console gaming is so cheap then why do I have to spend $600~ in order to play Super Mario Galaxy, Uncharted 3 and Halo 3?

Its terrible. Good processor, but GPU will stop you from doing anything with it.

edit: Why is the HDD only 5400RPM?

Also, my PC cost $950 australian. (I didnt build it, its shop bought)
Its reletivly low range, but its far better then that thing. And its cheaper. Look around more.

Not very good for 3D gaming. You'll need a bulkier video card.

OK well that's the store I'm going to tomorrow and I'm picking up a pre-built computer. Anyone have any recommendations on that site for what I should get with a cash fund of 2 grand?

Just out of curiosity, why don't you want to build yourself? Two Grand is a huge budget that gets you a top of the line sli setup when spent correctly.

I don't have the time or patience to build one myself. I know full well that I can get something that even god will envy but don't care to. It requires a lot of searching and shopping and for a first time PC, there;s no way I'm dropping 2 grand with a chance I might screw it up.

Speaking of Envy, I've been eyeing up those babies like a hot 19 yearold brunette. I know laptops aren't as powerful, but I have 7 grand in disposable cash.

You can ask for suggestions for a build on this board and then take that to a computer store and pay a bit extra for them to put it together for you. best of both worlds.

Say what you like about Stephenie Meyer and the Twilight series but she will forever be remembered in literary history for the invention of Vampires.

That means less money, but more time. I might as well build one myself instead of waiting a day for it to be ready. Plus, I doubt someone cares enough about my purchase to scower through all of the available products on that site and give me a list of what to get.
