Holy shit. That's cheap as shit. Considering the price drop, you wouldn't custom built it that cheap, unless you maybe bought the shittest H77 mobo and a $10 PSU. :P Don't like locked processors though.

 

And a 7770 will run games just fine, although I'd stay away for Cyrsis 3 on high res. and ultra settings. xD

I will add the caveat: it is refurbished. But imo, with that hardware for that price, who cares? CPU alone is probably almost half the total price.

As good as a deal it is, Its A, A Dell, and B, An Intel CPU

 

Both overpriced branded names, that are great if you have the dollar to afford them, the GPU is equivalent to my GTX550, which Fergal, handles the Crysis 3 demo on ultra ok.

And David, just because i say making your own pc is better doesn't mean i wouldn't buy a pre-built one, i just have the family to do so if anything goes wrong if i fuck up my build, only reason i build my own comps etc,

Also, apon looking up part prices, that is the price for most of the parts on thier own anyway, minus the fact you would need a case and psu etc,

I didn't say it wouldn't handle it okay, but on a high resolution screen with ultra, the framerate just wouldn't be high enough to play enjoyably.

im buying that same gpu soon. from what ive read it handles most games on high/ultra with a few exceptions of course. 

 

other than that, that computer overall is pretty similar to mine except i only have 8Gb of ram, and a smaller HDD which doesnt really matter as mine is big enough as is.

How much did it cost you?

60-90, it fluctuates without vsync, so i leave it on and get 60 dead, and 1920x1080

i think i bought the computer in 2011 for somewhere around $630 i think. the new card costs $120 so that will put total value at around $750. the shipping on it was another 75 fucking dollars though so i guess you could include that to the value if you really wanted to.

 

overall youre getting a good deal on it for a pre-built pc versus buying one directly from dell.

 

i bought mine from cyberpowerpc which offered the best bang for the buck for a pre-built computer that i could find at the time. you are also able to build a custom pc on their website and they build it for you. i also got some free games with it which was a plus i guess.
