Q. visitor asked, Hello! I am looking for a cheap gaming computer that can run most games at Medium to High settings

Edward B.
Hi my name is Ed, How are you today?
I see you are looking at the Gaming systems how can I help you?
Hello! I am looking for a cheap gaming computer that can run most games at Medium to High settings
Edward B.
Ok
did you have a budget?
somewhere betwween 400 to 700, so not much
Edward B.
Actually I can do pretty good with that did you need a monitor as well?
No, I already have a motinor
Edward B.
ok
And a mouse and keyboard (thought the keyboard's rather old
Edward B.
this isi the one I recommend the most in that price range it is a really good performer
Isn't that basically a laptop in a desktop package?
Edward B.
No it is small footprint though
it does share several features with the ROG laptop
this one as well is a 8 core amd and is really quite fast
I sorta like that one
What features does it share?
Edward B.
It does look real good and the 8 core AMD is really fast way faster than the i5
same Vid card
and ram
the Asus is a GTX 960M, the iBUYPOWER is a 950
Edward B.
tru it is just a matter of MHZ really same ffaminly of GPU though
and with the 8 core AMD it will out perform the i5
Thank you!
Edward B.
You are very welcome
I have justo one more question - What would you recommend, AMD or Intel?
Edward B.
Well I like both but the AMD 8 core is almost as fast as a high end i7 so for midrange machines I like AMD for high end gaming the i7
Heck even the 6 core AMD will out perform all the i5's
If I was going to use this computer for work and gaming, which would be the most important - SSD, processor, or graphics card?
Edward B.
For gaming its graphics card and CPU for work it is cpu then graphics card the SSD is just a faster access to information
If I was going for a cheaper computer, what would you reccomend? (CLoser to the 550 range)
Edward B.
hmm
How does it compare to this? http://www.newegg.com/Product...
Edward B.
they are very similar same cpu and family of graphics card but that one is a bit better with the larger HDD and and faster gpu
How important is RAM?
Edward B.
Very up to a point most games you will never need more than say 8 gb but I try to do 12 to 16gb to make it easier on the cpu to do what it needs to
But that only comes into effect with intense gaming no standard work programs ever need more than 8
But it seems that the 12 or 16 GB computers are on the very frienge of the price range... oh well.
Edward B.
and again most games don't use that much either
8 is plenty ffor most everything really
Thank you very much for your help!
Edward B.
You are very welcome
You have a wonderful night
You as well
