Default Considering buying (AMD)Ultim8

Desktop Computers, Custom Built PC, Gaming PCs, Desktop PC, Gaming Computers, Custom Built PCs, Desktop Computer

Now I was considering buying this, I have the a keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc.

What would you rate this for how much it is worth, what is the the demanding game it could probably run, any loop holes (does it include required cables?) etc.

Thanks guys.

I can't really comment too much on this, as i'm not up on my uk pricing. To me, it seems abit pricey.. is it the x2 or x4?

No loop holes i can see, and it will only come with the power supply cable to plug it in to the wall...

I would suggest building one yourself at that price.
- AMD FX8320 @ 4.2Ghz - ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer - G.Skill Ripjaws X 8gb -
- Asus Strix GTX 970 - Corsair Neutron GTX - Corsair TX 750 -
- Cooler Master HAF XB - Corsair H105 -
- Asus VG248QE - Corsair M60 & K90 -

From what i've seen UK PC prices are higher than North America. (This is about $1200 by my calculations).

In Canada this system is worth (factoring in 3 year warranty) $1100 - so i'd say this is not a bad deal.

You can build this yourself for less, but you're sacrificing the 3 year warranty which is quite nice. Also if you're not comfortable building your own, i'd say this isn't a bad deal, but is on the steep side of what the hardware is worth.
