I'm not 100%...but I think you're lying.

 

Everything you read on the Internet is true according to its inventor Al Gore.

Is it truly amazing to play at 1080p or higher with 60fps? Someone is running this specs Intel i7 4930K @ 3.4GHz
16 GB G.Skill Z Series RAM
ASUS STRIX GTX 980Ti OC6 Samsung Pro Series 256GB SSD
Western Digital 2TB Mechanical HD
Windows 10 Pro

He is a hardcore gamer. I havent play pc games since a kid (Star Controller 2). Just want a decent setup that can play games smooth and looks good. I know tech always changes so fast. Thanks to everyone so far with input.


I have a 980ti, if you're looking for casual don't go with a 980ti because they're $650 alone. I would recommend a 750ti. Good price, can be OC'd, and will still perform better on current games than their console counterparts.

The CPU is really good. That alone is worth a bit more than $150. The graphics card (GPU) is really bad. I don't think you'll play those games at highest settings at 1080p (of the games you listed, maybe the original Bioshock). The RAM is good. Whether it has a Blu Ray doesn't matter, really. Most games are sent digitally and I'm gonna assume this comes with Windows pre-installed. I you're only looking to max out <2013 games this will put you almost there. But you'll need a less bad GPU. If you put at least $180-200 in, you'll be able to play many new games on high settings, assuming you're not trying to go above 1080p.


At least that's all I can tell from what you've posted. Can't help you too much because dunno what the motherboard is and if it's got a decent PSU. Those could run extra expenses up by another $200. If I'm being perfectly honest, unless this a buddy trying to sell it to you on the cheap, I'd be suspect of this deal. It's one of those "too good to be true" types.[/quote

The GPU is just the integrated Intel HD4000

For 150 it's worth it for the RAM and CPU alone.

He won't be able to play those games at max settings, maybe on low, but not 1080p. Depending on his Mobo he could add a cheap 750ti and get what he's wanting though.

Regardless for $150, it's a good deal for the simple fact you're running a Windows desktop with an i7 quad core already built for you.

Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB for Mac - $32(G)/$34(LN)
http://www.amazon.co...&condition=used

Thought I would share this one with you guys. It must be a slight mistake in the algorithm as the same hard drive with half the storage (500gb) is $41. This can be used with the PS4 or the Xbox One however, note that it must be reformatted on a WINDOWS PC before it will work with any console. Out of the box, it's in MacOS Extended Journaled format, it needs to be reformatted into MS-DOT FAT format.

The lowest prices I've seen 1tb is around $45 on AWD and $65 for 2tb.


You can format it on a Mac too. Disk Utility gives you the option to do OSX, MS-DOS, or ExFat

He just hates the $80 xbox one because he didn't get it.  Just like the rest of us who didn't get it.

 

Yeah I'd buy another one for 80 bucks ha
