here's a link to the PC.

http://gamepc.nl/amd-game-pc

 

it sports:

an AMD FX4300 processor clocking in on 3.8 Ghz

an kinda good 8 gigs of RAM

an AMD radeon 7850 1 gig graphics card

and a 500 gig HDD

 

i know the graphics card isn't all that good, so should i buy this?

it's about 600 euro's, and that's really cheap for a game PC.

The hardware in this one though is pretty good, though, I'd upgrade to the FX8350 cpu. :)

You could build your own, but honestly, this computer is pretty good. My video card is only a Radeon HD 6K series and can run BF4 on ultra, so your video card is actually pretty good. Personally, I'd get it. Eventually switch out that HDD for a SSD later. Though it doesn't have the power supply in the specs, so when you, or if you decide to get it I'd look inside and see how many watts it'll be using. If it's using a 300-400 watts I'd suggest upgrading to a 500-600 instead, just for the comfort of it not shutting down when you're running a high end game.

@,

yeah the beauty of the site i found it on is that i can choose the components i want in it myself. so i could just order it to come with 1000 watt (eventough that would be a massive overkill :P

@@ProjectRKA, did that, but i had to choose another motherboard for that to work too. so that cranks the price up another 200 euro's. and i dunno if that's all too good for gaming. only game with 8-core support right now is battelfield 4 i think..

 

still, it's a awesome setup :D

It can never be too good. Besides, you'll just be future proofing it ;)

Don't let RAM be a deciding factor in your decision to purchase a computer. I myself bought my computer with 6gb of RAM and doubled it for $50. 

 

Really though I think it sounds alright. It's a pretty good processor and a fairly good graphics card as far as I'm aware.

If you choose to change some of the components, you should definitely change it to the FX8350 cpu. :)

 

I'm not too sure about going to an FX8350. I'm running an FX6300 and it plays very well.

 

I've been told that if you want a video editing machine, put a lot of focus on the GPU and CPU. But if you're gaming, the GPU should be your biggest focus since that's what's bearing most of the load. 

 

I'm playing Black Ops II, Tomb Raider, Skyrim, Borderlands 2, Need for Speed, and GTA IV all in 1080p and I'm using a Radeon 7770 GHz edition and only 4 GB of RAM. I think this setup will be good to start with. The awesome part of PC gaming is that you can upgrade at any time. :)

@,

thanks for that piece of info, i'll keep that in mind.

i'm thinking on maybe a nvidea GTX 780 gor a graphics card. kinda expensive, but it'll last a few years too before i need an upgrade :P

Get a GTX 770, PSU for a single GPU should not exceed 750W. Anything around 600W for any single GPU is fine and you'll still have massive headroom to overclock CPU and GPU.

 

8GB of RAM is more than enough for a gaming PC, you only need more if you do SERIOUS video editing. (None of that omg I can fraps minecraft bullshit.)

 

Your processor is gonna be a massive bottleneck if you upgrade the GPU though. Try and get the FX8350, 8150 or 8320 as well.
