Based on my readings, Western Digital is better than Seagate in terms of drive life and quality control.

Yep.

Yep.

It's also for drives bought in 2012. Not that I'm excusing their behaviour, as it does point towards a tendency to ship out bad drives, but there are some that are safer, like that backup slim since it uses a Samsung Spinpoint on the insides.

 

Maybe they'll learn a few years from now.

That's good information regarding Seagate.

Truth be told, I just put a 2TB Sammy drive in my PS4 - it was pulled from a Seagate external drive.

EDIT: Eh, I canceled it. I need to be smarter about spending my credit and I have no real interest in that anyway.

Ah, I think I see what he's getting at. It's called "rationalism" a rare dialect of a dying language known as "logic." I mean, if we all spoke that we would NOT buy half of the s*** we pick up off of AWD let's face it!

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.

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.

Precision towers are usually workstation desktops so they're not geared towards gaming.

For $150 though, you could probably just upgrade it yourself.

Its a family member asking if I was interested. Works at a company that collects donation of computer stuff from companies.Stated that it came from a company that probably upgraded the workstations. I use to pc game as a kid (Star Controller 2, etc.), but been gaming on consoles. I do miss pc games and was watching Twitch TV (EDX TV is a great channel to watch) and when I got the text I said yes because I know i7 is good. It comes with windows 7 pro 64 bit. As for the motherboard, its the standard and saw it when googling on the dell website.

On the Dell site, you can put server tag GJJFDX1 i7-3770 HD4000 8gb Ram. As for games, was hoping on games from 2013 and below because I picked some up for cheap during BB/GS clearance sale on pc games. I was deciding on getting a graphics card anyway because I knew that HD4000 isnt the best, but it improved over the intel cards before that. (Hd3000,etc)

Definitely a good deal.  My only concern was that he was being sold a lemon, especially for that price.  The CPU or MOBO was dead or something.  Seems like he's getting it through a work connection, though, which means it's should be fine.  But he definitely needs that GPU upgrade.  Maybe a PSU upgrade, considering it was running on an integrated GPU instead of a dedicated one.

One thing to check is the power supply.  Sometimes these are given bare bones power supplies that will not be able to power a high end graphics card.  Also, the case might not have enough room for a high end graphics card.  $150 is a good deal for that, but if you want it for gaming we would need to know a little more about the system.

Yeah. The plan was to upgrade. Since I dont game much have no clue about 1080p gaming? Just want smooth play and look pretty and of course better looking then a xbox 360 and ps3. Read the post above.

HD(X000) aren't actual video cards, just integrated video drivers from the processor itself.

(Where X is whatever your processor handles).

Yeah, I can imagine. You should take into account the form factor of the dell itself and what it can handle. I can't quite check that right now, so I can't tell you in regards to that. Dell likes to put in things in their desktops to make upgrading a little annoying, last I saw one of those towers.
 
(plastic covers and shit that you have to remove to fit things, etc).
 
But all things aside, you could have a potential PC for gaming with a small investment once you get it, if you do.
