Its already dated.

"Witcher 3 at 60 fps"... right. Im SURE that means 1080p and high settings right? *Rolls eyes*

It has an undisclosed "gtx 2gb graphics card", which could literally be a few different cards.


4gb of ram is laughable nowadays. This machine is essentially a laptop built into a small form factor pc. Not entirely uncool, but if youre looking for a gaming machine, that thing wont last too long, as upgrading it will be extremely difficult. At best you could probably add some ram and a bigger hdd.


If 300$ is your budget, get a console imo.

What are your uses for the machine? I vaguely recall from your other similar thread, that gaming was part of it? Like the others said, you are not going to get a solid PC machine that games for $300...

I would lean to the used parts market...
Could build something decent for 400 bucks. Like an i3 with a 7970 and even a small SSD...
Mobo+CPU+Ram: +/- $150. GPU $100/$150. PSU (new, quality one) 50. Case (new) $40. 1TB HDD $70. It's between 400 and 500 for a PC that would play most games on high [email protected]

Okay. :D I give up. Being cheap won't let me game. I'll just have to get back to writing for indie game developers.
