Hello, I'm looking for a gaming PC but I'm not sure which to get. I have no idea what parts to get and also I don't know how to put one together. I would like if the PC came already built. I also need a monitor, keyboard and mouse. The games I would be playing are GTA V (i know its not out yet), CoD zombies, borderlands, football manager etc.. Thanks

Id upgrade the graphics card in the fusion shotgun to the 660gtx,it handles most modern games on ultra/high settings comfortably,bf4,crysis3,cod ghosts

The free game you receive "watchdogs" when upgrading to the nvidia card plays smoothly on high settings on the gtx 660,very nice graphically but the games too "stealthy" for me

Okay, A quick question, If I don't get a SSD does that mean i have to buy 1 or 2 hard drives?

Okay thanks a lot, one last question to get a 1tb HDD, I just buy 2 500gb hdd right? as i can't see a 1tb hdd on that computer

As mechkb2 said there's not a hdd supplied,either remove the ssd from the system and add the 1tb drive or add the 1tb drive,cost about £80,click on customise there's a list of parts to upgrade to or downgrade,in the hdd section its second one down

Okay thanks a lot. Btw is the windows optimisation service worth the extra £30?

  harry_farley 11:17 30 Jun 2014

Thanks, last question i promise, Will windows 8.1 64 bit work with the computer or do i have to get windows 7
