My PC. I need opinions.


Active Member
I need opinions. I bought this off craigslist for $500, it seemed like a really good deal. He had it for $600 and I lowered the bin (lel). I need opinions whether I should leave it as is, or if I should upgrade some parts and if so, which parts. If you know someone who is good at computers, tag em plx.

i would go for a better video card imo but everything else looks pretty good, i hope you know what you are doing when building :)
I didn't build this, i bought it off craigslist. What video card would you recommend?


Onyx user!
Holy moly. You got this for less than $600? Man, that's amazing. That's an extremely good deal. You even got the monitor and keyboard with it.

You forgot to mention how you're going to use this machine. It'll EASILY handle all the basic tasks like Skype, Chrome, YT, Word, e-mail, Spotify, etc, with absolutely no problem.

I'm assuming you already reformatted the HDD and SSD.

If you're going to be using it for random crap like above then you're golden. If you're doing gaming then you're probably fine too. In the really new games you might have to turn some settings down. The joke is "can it run Crisis?" but the fact is most people don't play Crisis or any other extremely hardware intensive game. If you're a hardcore gamer (which judging by this thread, you're not) the only upgrade I can recommend is the video card. I can't make a good recommendation for a video card without knowing what games you plan to play (and on what settings) and your budget.
