[Solved] Disappointed with my brand new PC

Recommended Posts

snip - that was extremely long. :P

 

Remember that you're on a board heavily dominated by such enthusiast. At any rate, look at the comment you quoted of mine and remember to whom and why I made that comment.

 

I'll stay short to keep from hijacking this thread: I hate making compromises.

Holy mother! $3500??!! That's seriously the biggest PC rip-off I've ever seen. You could build that PC yourself for under 1000$. For $1250 you could have gotten a i7 2700K with a GTX 680.

 

What a rip-off. I've also made this mistake once a few years ago. Gotten an Acer PC for 1000$, it had an i7 860 and a GTX 320, I got told that the GTX 320 was a high-end card, and I didn't know anything about PC's at that moment,turns out it's crap.

 

Now I've got a PC that's worth around 1250$, and it runs FSX 3 times as good as that Acer PC.

 

My best tip? Put that PC on eBay, if you get 3000$ for it you can build a PC yourself that's way better and barely hafl the price. Yes you'll lose a lot of money, but it's the best solution.

 

With that PC, you can get better performance, but not MUCH better. If you have a good FSX.cfg you should be getting around 20 FPS in the same situation, but expect it too be laggy.

Man, for 3500$ I would have gladly built you the screamer computer and configured it myself and have it delivered to you, no matter where you live.

I've come back to this thread a few times, each time trying to figure out how to respond regarding $3500. Well done, Word Not Allowed! I couldn't agree more.

What do you guys think of this? Good price or over priced?

 

Where abouts are you located? I see that site is in Aus.

 

That's overpriced. You can pick up a 2700K for $339 AUD give or take including GST.

Yeah, me too. However, I can understand someone buying and paying too much like that when they are new to the hobby or advanced systems. What I don't get are those that diminish what overclocking and highly tuned modern systems will do.

Nothing unusual Stephen, nothing unusal. See it every day in my shop.
