Yes, I know, prebuilt. However I've looked at all the options for PC part delivery to Ireland, and found that assembling a similar build would be around just as expensive, not everyone with the best deals delivers here.

Seems like a decent deal. Keep in mind it doesn't have an operating system.

Yeah it has a good cpu, but it is not over clockable. The GTX 760 is a good midrange graphics card. At this time it can run most games at 1080p at high or max settings at 60fps. Some current popular games you'd have to scale back a little bit are games like battlefield 4, ESO, Wildstar and probably a handful of other single player games like Crysis or metro 2044.

It does not have an OS as someone pointed out so itll be another $100 for that. As far as prebuilts go, if I convert it into US dolalrs including an OS its going to be about $1000 which is slightly over priced for sure in the US for that set up, but being from Ireland I don't have much else to compare too. If it did come with an OS already, I'd say its a fair price for a prebuilt for sure.

Yeah I saw, it'd still be cheaper for me adding that on, thanks. If I can still apply a student discount before I officially graduate, all the better.

I have Server and Embedded versions of Windows from Dreamspark, I wish it had the proper consumer versions. :P

I currently play my Steam Library on a 768p laptop with an i5-3210m and a Radeon 7670m.
