Is this a good PC

Recommended Posts

I am looking at upgrading from my current system, which is:

 

  • MSI G31TM-P21 Motherboard
  • Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 Processor
  • GlacialTech Igloo 5058 Socket775 95W CPU Cooler
  • Corsair Value Select (2GB) 2048MB PC5400 DDR2 Desktop Memory
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 666 TI
  • LG GH22NS40 22X SATA SecurDisc DVD RW Internal Drive
  • Seagate ST9250410AS Momentus 7200.4 Hard Drive
  • Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000
  • Microsoft Basic USB Optical Mouse
  • Cooler Master NV-334-KWN1-GP Elite 334 Nvidia Case
  • Ultra LS500 Lifetime Series 500W Power Supply

 

 

I found an AMD based computer on ebay its specs are:

 

 

FX8150 AMD 8 Core 3.6GHZ Black Edition (Clockable)

Zotac NVIDIA GeForce GTX650Ti 2GB Video Card

Sabertooth 990FX R 2.0 Mainboard

120GB SSD Harddrive & 2 TB Seagate ST2000DM001 Hard drive

LG DVD Super Multi Recorder

8GB KHX-1600C9D3K2 Kingston Memory

OCZ 750W OCZ-ZT750W Power Supply

Quality Black Cougar Volant Solution Gamers Case

 

I would probably keep the graphics card, since it is the better of the two cards.

 

 

Is the computer worth it, or should I keep on looking and try to find an intel based kit.

 

Also how would the computer run fax. Would I be able to get fps in the 30's?

 

Thank you for your replies,

The system is most probably a better performer in FSX than your current system. But what is the price? And what´s your limit (would it be sounder to make a new build?) How old is the rig? Complete rigs being sold off are usually a bit outdated.

If you want to upgrade, don't purchase a prebuilt desktop. Buy the parts and build it yourself! it's significantly cheaper.
