What do you all think to this?

Recommended Posts

I found this site which was recommended as providing great deals on all computer parts and they also sell a few built gaming desktops. This one below all looks fantastic. I would sell the graphics card instantly though and purchase a 980 or 1070 and also need to ask someone who works there what the deal is with the motherboard because it doesn't show one in the specs.

 

Other than that, does this look like a good setup to have to run P3D?

Somebody says on Amazon...

 

 

 

6. There is ZERO documentation on the motherboard. I've looked and looked and can't find any specs or info on it. I can't tell how future proof the motherboard is, for example.

In addition, you have no idea what the PSU is. 

 

You could email them, but to be honest, I would say they will undoubtedly be cutting corners somewhere, motherboard, PSU etc.

The PSU is 730w

 

But you don't know who built the PSU, this is massively important if you would rather not see sparks and your carpet on fire.

Years ago before I knew the difference and needing a PSU quickly I bought an unbranded one from PCWORLD (remember them uk readers) two years later I have a big bang, sparks under my desk and  a dead PC.

Then I read up and  learned of companies such as Seasonic that make real PSU's.

Precisely! There's a huge difference between a cheap, unbranded PSU and a quality unit. A quality PSU is vital.

 

Yep, I remember PC WORLD. Still around, one by me. Taken over by Curry's now.
