If you build it yourself you can save $125. You can use that for better parts that are more reliable or upgrade on what you think you need more of.

These are basically the same parts ibuypower uses for their computers. Except for the memory and ram, couldn't find them on here but the ones on here are better than on that PC. The Keyboard mouse combo here is better than on that one.

Alright thanks for that, this should be able to run most games high-maxed? (Bf4, planetside2, dayz, arma3)

Um... for this budget good luck you can reach low high settings but not maxed.

You forgot to add in a power supply.

Hey there. Honestly, that's the least offensive pre-built PC I've seen in a while. Offensive in the sense that it's not horribly over-priced. Anyway, I came up with this for a little bit more.

Added in a better graphics card and the board should give you a few more options for upgrades later on.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Hope this helped.

Thanks for that, but do you think a gtx 770 will run better than a 290?

  • 71 months ago

That will max out but will cost you more money.

Nope. Better than a 280X, maybe, but it'll be a very marginal difference. But better than a 290? Nope.

Here are the benchmarks for the card:
