Are these good specs? Aug. 9th, 2012 @ 03:22 PM Reply

Right now my computer sucks and is the verge of dying. I'm thinking of getting a computer than can run some of the games my friends can run(like Dota2, Tf2 and Counterstrike). There's a pretty cheap computer that I'm thinking of buying with the following specs;

Computer Case : Cooler Master Elite 360 Mid Tower Case
Power Supply Upgrade : 550W Heavy Duty TOUGH Series SATA Power Supply
Motherboard : Asus M5A78L-M LX AMD 760G/ Hybrid CrossFireX/ A&V&GbE/ MATX
Processor : AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.8GHz AM3 Quad Core 2MB Cache
CPU Cooling Fan : Original Factory Cooling Fan and Heatsink
Video Card : HD Onboard 3D graphics SVGA (HDMI+ DVI only if listed with board)
Sound Card : 8-Channel Digital Sound Card (onboard)
Network Card : 10/100/1000 Gigabit Network Card (onboard)

So, my question to you is, is it good?

Those are pretty terrible specs. However, if you upgrade your computer case you should be able to run games fine.

okay low-mid level cpu, nothing amazing.

Video Card : HD Onboard 3D graphics SVGA (HDMI+ DVI only if listed with board)

definitely not good. especially if you're buying it for gaming, you'll want a dedicated card.

Sorry, but that CPU isn't going to get you very far. Can we see some more specs, like RAM, HDD, and price?

It doesn't tell the ram or hdd but the price is $250.

You probably should not buy something if you don't even know what RAM or HDD it has.

Integrated graphics are a no-no for gaming, anyway. I'm sorry, but you'll need to increase your budget. There is no way you can get by on $250.

The processor and graphics card are both pretty shitty. I'm sure this computer will run Excel well
