Pre-built PC Specs Opinions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

Looking to jump back into Windows again and saw this pre-built "gaming" PC that seems to be a good deal.

Specs:
Intel Qaud Core i5 6600 3.9GHz 6th Gen Skylake
H170 motherboard
16gb DDR4 ram 2133Mhz
1TB 7200rpm HDD
240 gb SSD
R9 390 8GB gDDR5 GPU or GTX 970 4gb gDDR5 for $10 more
Optical drive
650W psu (very highly recommend to upgrade to this as bare minimum)

All this for about $1264 AUD or $935 USD.

Do you reckon these specs will be able to last me a while and is open to upgrades for when VR kicks off in the future?

Thanks! Looking forward to hearing what you guys have to say.

Looks good to me, I'd choose the R9 390 version for the ability to add another 390 cheap and never be vRAM limited ever smile.gif
While with 2x GTX 970, which is 3.5Gb actual, you may be limited in future games and never see the full potential of sli.

I was in the same boat as you a couple months ago. 390 or 970. I went with the 970 because a handful of games dont run to well with the 390.
The power consumption is much better and heat is not a problem.
You could consider getting something used so that you can wait and get the 1070 when it drops below 350. Its runs better then a GTX 980. it has a whopping 8 FREAKING gigabytes.

The trick is find out what the part manufacturers are.
Most prebuilt they will put in the crappest no-name brands.
Most important find what the brands of the PSU and SSD are.
