I want to buy a decent cheap desktop (maybe a laptop).

I do play games often so I would like something that could run games quite good but nothing special and expansive and also I want alot of memory as I download alot of films n random shiz, not porn haha.

I went to a shop and they gave me quite a good offer;

Desktop make was called "gigabyte" never heard of it before

the desktop only came with 500gb hardrive and 4 gb ram and some shitty graphics card but the guy said he would change the ram and give me another hardrive and a different graphics card but would cost more. Does this sound fishy at all ? is he just desprate to sell ?

anyway this is what he offered.

1.5 terabyte hardrive 8 gb ram i think a 1gb graphics card not to sure which make something like geeforce i5 intel processor windows 8 (never used it before)

all for: 480 euros/401 pounds/665 dollars including a monitor

is this a good deal ?

can any1 recommend a good desktop or laptop or even a good processor and graphics card ?

cheers

What you have mentioned looks OK to me although, personally, I would go for W7 rather than W8. What you don't mention is the processor which, from the price you give, I suspect could be a very low spec.

Sorry, just spotted the i5 processor which is fine. Maybe to get the price low he's using cheap components?
