Buying A New PC - Much Appreciated
by iplaywow - 5/7/12 10:58 AM
Hi there, as guessed from the title I am asking for your advice and experiance to reccomend a great,overall solid desktop PC. My budget is £1600 however, I am willing to increase this if necessary. This includes the desktop alone and not the keyboard,mouse and monitor. Your help is much appreciated!
What's the Problem?
I am a college student taking a course for Graphic Desgin and media studies, and my 7 year old Dell Dimension 9200 is in need of a upgrade. I am mostly interested in Graphic Design but, I am also a enthusiastic gamer. Some of the games I play are, Bf3, Cod 4, World of Warcraft just to name a few. I would like to play these games on high settings with a good FPS. However the problem is I am not aloud a Gaming PC, as I still live with my parent's. Me and my parents have comprimised that the PC won't be just for Gaming. I would like the Pc to have a i7 proccessor, a Nvidia or other high quality brands graphics card. A good, solid Brand to buy from and good cooling and relibility. It would also be prefferable to have some upgradeability in the future. Here are a couple of Desktop PC's I have came across on the web. If possible, I would like the PC to have a SSD. The most expensive - Apple iMac http://store.apple.com/us/configure/MC814LL/A?. The Dell 8500,http://configure.euro.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?oc=d00x8515&c=uk&l=en&s=dhs&cs=ukdhs1&model_id=xps-8500. Finally, the HP http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/pavilion-hpe-h8-1270ea-desktop-pc-12381961-pdt.html.
Your help is much appreciated,
