That PC uses a GT 640 for graphics, you have to keep in mind that more VRAM =/= more performance, in fact, the 4GB 640 will likely perform worse than that 760 OEM, if you are looking at that price range and are set on buying a prebuilt from that site then this would be a good choice,

This has the proper desktop version of the 760 and also has a free PCI-E lane allowing for SLI in the future, assuming the PSU is sufficient.

Exactly I don't know how prebuilts even sell when most people should have a decent shop that can build you one at a decent cost if you buy the parts yourself if you are to afraid to do it yourself.

Most people don't trust small PC shops.

The parts are mismatched to reduce costs. If using a low power CPU, you should get a 4440 instead.

Ubisoft have been showing PC gameplay videos for sometime, them they released a ps4 gameplay video and the console users freaked out.

PC version will be leagues ahead of PS4/X1, but it will not run Ultra 60fps on any pc. Yet it will not be like a new crysis that demand a whole new machine.

don't buy computers from Bestbuy.... how many times does it need to be said


You think that Asus computer is somehow different if you bought it somewhere else.?

No, they are usually overpriced the most at Best Buy.


Not true, I don't get why people always assume this. They aren't overpriced. Not to mention they will price match everybody including Online. I always window shop on Amazon and then go to Best Buy with what I want and have them price match if they aren't the same price.

thedude3514: In my experience, Best Buy is one of the more expensive places I can shop for electronics but they carry a lot of stuff from weird brands so you can't price-match. When it comes to buying cables, Bluetooth dongles, silly things like that, you may end up paying $40 for a $5 item.

For major brands I guess you can take advantage of the price match but even then there are so many different versions of different items that I wouldn't be surprised if I found I couldn't price match a common item at Best Buy.

People don't "assume" that Best Buy is a rip-off; they know it from having visited there. Not to mention, if you see the stuff that the Geek Squad tries to sell you on then it's hard not to leave with a sour taste in your mouth. Like how they try to make it sound difficult to hook up a video game console so that they can charge you for a "technician" to come over to your house and plug a PS3 into your TV.
