Nice rig. Good luck with putting out the fire.

Get a humble bundle or something when your rig is set up.
https://www.humblebundle.com/

They offer some good games for cheap.


FTL alone is worth the $4.85 to unlock it.

That should play all current gen games no problem.

Next gen though will be trouble. It will take some upgrading. Probably power supply and video card. But you can wait.

You'll be able to play any modern game, just not at very good settings. If that's not an issue for you, have fun! Otherwise, I'd ask my parents to get a refund.


Well, I plan on upgrading overtime, so I'll probably just keep it and upgrade as I need to. After seeing my friends and my cousins high-end PC's, Steam sales, mods...I don't really have any desire to go console anymore. Being new to all this, I know I have a bunch to learn...but I'm actually excited and looking forward to it.


You really should consider returning that prebuilt, and either build your own or pay someone to do it for you (ecollegepc.com is a good choice) it will save you heartache and money in the long run.


I don't think I could return it. Money is tight in my family, and I know my parents were super excited to get this for me. I'll just upgrade or build my own in the future. I would feel like a jerk if I returned it...


money is tight for me aswell, but I built a pc very similar to your's(albeit with a less flashy case and no keyboard) and that cost me less than $200 after rebates and taxes. Oh, and this was three years ago. Something you should probably know. ofc, getting that rig under $200 took a few weeks of waiting for the right deals, but you don't have to go out of your way to get save that extra $60.

if money really is tight, you would do best to return the prebuilt provided that you're willing to build your own. Also, upgrading is more practical if you've built a rig before.

Oh come on, you're BSing this. You did not buy a computer comparable to this 3 years ago for less than $200. I bought my current computer 3 years ago and the 8GB of RAM alone cost over $300. Granted, I'm sure it wasn't cheap RAM, but I find it highly dubious that you could get 8GB of RAM back then for less than $100 by itself.
