Hi Michael,

The Configuration of this pc looking good to me. But if you have a good budget then I recommend to buy HP ENVY Recline 27" as it has 12GB DDR3L-1600MHz SODIMM[2 DIMM] So you don't need to worry about big games and fast performance. My cousin own this pc and till to date he is talking about good things about this model.

Basic Configuration...

4th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590T processor quad-core [2.0GHz, 3MB Shared Cache] 12GB DDR3L-1600MHz SODIMM[2 DIMM] 27" diagonal IPS FHD multitouch-enabled LED-backlit (1920 x 1080)

Price Range Starting From $1399. 99 - ..

Right now you can save 20% off $999 With Coupon PC12999.

The fast pc is better to play games.

Hope this helps.

Hi Michael , let me know your budget , and what you need to include in that budget ( do you have a monitor , mouse keyboard , speakers , headphones etc ) . I will see what we can come up with . Are you prepared to build your self or are you only looking to buy pre built ?
