New PC

  darkhorse5559 18:51 07 Dec 2008

I am looking at buying a new PC for games and general use. The one I was looking at was the Advent PQD5002 from Pc World and a graphics card at about £100. How well would this pc perform for new games and which graphics card should I get.

I can't really comment about Cyber Power or any other pre-assembled system as I'd rather pick the components myself and build.

Have a look at some reviews from around the net for pre-built systems to see what they think.

After looking around again I found that Cyber Power do some quite good gaming pcs for roughly the same price. Has anyone had any experiences with this company? If they are good, which Pc would be best?

Would this one be alright click here ?
Also would this computer with the graphics card an psu be any good for gaming?

you will need a better psu. 550 to 650 of the best quality you can afford.

Also the motherboard has 1 PCI-E x16

After finding the pc world support site which has much more detailed specs of the pc, I found that it has a TLM725 case (click here) which contains a ATX 250-350W power supply.

Phone pc world and ask them which psu it has.

Those cards look great. I will probably get that one but will i need a more powerful PSU. I don't know which psu comes with this pc as the description on the site is quite basic (click here) and I can't find any other information on this pc.
