    Default New Gaming PC.

    I currently have a Sony Vaio which ive owned for a few years now, its a vgn-fe11h with an intel core processor. I bought it a little while before i got into mmorpg games so i was wasnt really looking into the state of graphics cards at the time. I feel its time to upgrade to a desktop PC as my poor Vaio is finding it hard to run ROM let alone upcoming 2010 rpgs.

    I have about 400 to spend, so i started searching ebay for cheaper AMD builds, i hope its not against forum regulations to link to ebay pages, if so i will happily remove the link if told otherwise. First off i would like to know if this is a good deal, but also if this would be able to run newer mmos like Aion and champions online:

    If you guys know of any other good retailers based in the UK, or any other set ups where i might be getting more for my money it would be greatly greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for reading!

    Prebuilt will turn out more expensive than self built, so I hope you can or know someone that can build a PC.

    edit: and not to forget, a pc part costs pretty much thesame in Europe as in the US. Just change the dollar sign to the euro sign.
    edit2: i hate scanreading....
    Give me a second and I'll see if I can find a website.

    Edit3: found a website and put a rig together:


    This does not include a monitor, keyboard, mouse and dvd.
    You won't be able to make it unless you already have those parts.

    Not really thanks as I wouldn't call that a gaming rig. Sure it'll be more powerful than your laptop, but it's still a fairly weak system.

    The best is to save up a bit more money and use that for an even better PC.

    if you need to decide which to buy go with sakumos but take another look at the mother board other than that
    itll give better performance on most programs with multi core function and a lot better performance for gaming

    just don't hope to oc any where on these things
    ----------------------------------
    Sakumo the mother boards an am2 mobo isn't it? you gave an am3 processor
    ----------------------------------
    and snowbunz thats not necessarily true about prebuilt being more expensive
