Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Starter Gaming PC This PC was my second of all PC's i have ever had. My first was a basic home computer and hardly enough to play the simplest of games. However this PC is perfect , it can run most games on High/Ultra , for example ' Dying Light ' on high. also can stream and record smoothly with OBS and many other services. (screenshot of GTAV , TERA , and Counter-strike Global Offensive below ) The only problem with the PC is that in 1 - 2 years you will have to upgrade the graphics driver or you will not be able to run games greatly. However overall i love this PC and after almost a year of having it i love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gaming PC Wanted to make the leap from console to PC and took decided to go with this system, I can't find the same spec for cheaper and the warranty gave me peace of mind. It worked straight out of the box, just plugged it in and the rest was easy. I've only played COD & BF4 so far and both looked amazing, so much better than on my Xbox! So far I've got nothing but praise for this pc and would recommend to anyone who is new to pc gaming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I got this PC about a month ago. I can say that it is amazing. I've run a few games off this PC, and the game's settings are at High/Ultra. I would so recommend getting this PC. I have some knowledge about Computing and PCs, and so once I saw this PC on offer, I had to get it. It's easy to setup and anyone would be able to follow the instructions because it's that simple! Even if you have no knowledge of PC at all! -James

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING. Plugged this computer in (mind you, I'm not that good at computers myself, but I wanted to game on the PC) and it worked straight away, was very happy that it can run games as I want them to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low budget gaming pc I just walked into the shop, looking for ideas on a new pc, staff gave their opinion and next day came back to buy it. Got it home and as soon as i switched it on, was impressed, nice and fast, clean looking and great performance. I've had it over a month now and still going as it should do, and don't forget about the 3 years warranty. Great computer from a great manufacturer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pc from Edinburgh i bought this last week in Edinburgh and had a problem with the windows 8.1 not installing. The staff could not have been more helpful and fixed it for me while I waited. This is a very fast quiet PC. For the money I think this is fantastic value. I would recommend this PC and if you are buying it the Edinburgh branch is the best place to go.

Did they stop selling this computer? If so why? I was looking forward to buying this in a couple of weeks time. It would be really disappointing if they stopped selling it.

Hi we want to buy a gaming pc for our son but are on a budget. He plays Minecraft, Cod etc, and has a You tube channel so uploads are watches video's alot. Will this pc enable all of this. It's a great price!

Asked by: Linspins7
This PC would be suitable for mid level gaming and would be suitable for browsing the web for YouTube access. I cannot give a more detailed description of how well it would run games as each game will have different minimum specifications to allow the game to function.

can i connect to the internet with this.

Asked by: willspcinfo
It can be connected to a network via it's own industry standard RJ45 Ethernet port. As long as you connect it to a network or router that has internet access then YES it can be connected to the internet. If you want to use wireless access then you would need something like. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/netgear-ac1200-usb-dual-band-wifi-network-adapter-a96tb
