Is this a decent enough pc for gaming and is it upgradable

#1assassinslord08Posted 11/13/2013 11:20:05 AM
I have been told I can have a pc as long as it is from the little woods catalogue.
I don't expect it to be amazing and price doesn't matter.
This is the one I considered getting

My questions are is it decent enough as a start can I upgrade it if I need to like a new graphics card if this one isn't good enough.
Any upgrades are from my own pocket so the fact this is expensive isn't a concern to me.

Or is there another one on the site that is cheaper for the same thing if I change parts anyway

That PC doesn't seem to have a GPU. So you're going to have to buy one for yourself and put it in there. Seems pretty expensive for what's in there...though it does have a good CPU.

But if my math is accurate, that thing costs like over $2,500. For $2,500 you could build a really high end gaming PC.

MSI or ASUS makes an all-in-one gaming PC I'll find

Eh, the one I found is likely faster but the ASUS seems OK

Dude said it had to be off that Little Woods site. Never heard of it, must be a British thing, so I don't know what all they offer in gaming PC terms.

upgradeable probably not

I doubt it uses an MXM module and even if it did the BIOS may not support an upgrade

Ha, I didn't realize it's one of those all in one type of things.

Yeah, you're not really going to be able to upgrade it. If you have to get a PC off of that site...get something like this.

It's got a tower, comes with a GPU, all of the stuff you need for a decent gaming PC. And most importantly it's upgradable. An i7-4770 with a 760 and 16GB of RAM is pretty good.

Adam?

Avoid all in one PCs for gaming, since they're difficult/impossible to upgrade. The PC that KabtheMentat pointed out is probably the best for the money on that site.

Does it have to be through that site though? If you want to pay monthly, I believe scan.co.uk and ebuyer offer finance. That would let you pick out components at much better prices with many more options.
