Is this pre-built pc from Newegg worth getting? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
I'd say just build it yourself, we can tell you what parts to get and how to put it together (that's the easiest part).

You are going to end up with a much better computer over all for a cheaper price.

Newegg link is NO BUENO for overclocking a Thuban (AMD 6 core) as it has no VRM cooling.

Jeeze... nVidia chipset!?
So a cheap board that is basically an AM2 board with an Am3 socket and DDR3 slots and lower end 4+1 VRM tacked on, and reduced hypertransport & features?
Yeah, if you absolutely must a prebuilt, there's better deals out there for even prebuilts.
If this were a custom build, I could build this PC for $500. OS, mouse and keyboard included.
If only you were in Canada, NCIX would be able to give you a nice "prebuilt" but with custom built parts they assemble...

If you're trying to spend that kind of money, then buy this stuff for $800 and it's WAY better. Anyone can put a computer together, it only takes a Phillips screwdriver.

All prices include shipping and are rounded up to the nearest dollar, rebates not factored, but included in parentheses

Mouse & Keyboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823575005 - $26
Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009299 - $127
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811147153 - $50
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171031 - $40 (and a $10 rebate)

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128514 - $158
Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131374 - $163 (and a $15 rebate)
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103849 - $165 ($15 off with that promo code)
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226103 - $40
HD & DVD-Writer: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.696127 - $53

Total = $822

$25 in rebates = $797

You'll have a SUPER nice rig, that looks good, for $800. You could even game on it. Edit video, whatever you want. It's a solid rig.

nope! Dont do it. Positives: 1090T, 6850 and Win 7, negatives: everything else. You could easily get that power and customize the rest for that price or less and have a better looking and more enjoyable system.

I think this computer is about $100 more but it would definitely be worth it.

More reliable company and it has a 1155 processor. You could always upgrade the motherboard later which is how I started building computers.

HP computers have horrid airflow. My cousin has the older Elite case and the only fan in there was a 92mm and NO spots for any more.

We hacked a hole with a hole saw in the side panel and added a 120mm fan and it finally allowed the GTX 460 he bought to run without issues.

Waste of money, completely.

I know OP you said you physically cannot build it yourself but do you know someone with basic assembly skills? It's really only a few screws to tie down the motherboard and the rest is toolless and plugs.

What I did is bought an hp. Then I moved it into a new case after 3-4 months. From there I swapped the motherboard so I could overclock. This allowed me to learn how to build computers and I slowly gained confidence.
