hello, i have a acer aspire 5742 and have realised it is terrible at games it either black screens or crashes. i have been looking for capable gaming PC and have found one round-about my budget. RCS Storm Intel i3 Dual Core Gaming PC - Nvidia GTS450 GFX specsProcessor: Intel Core i3 2100 Dual Core 2x 3.1Ghz Memory: 4 Gigabyte DDR3 1333Mhz Graphics Card: Nvidia GTS450 1Gb Pci Express HDMI Hard Disk Drive: 1 Terabyte SATAIII 6Gb/s Motherboard: AsRock Intel H61M-S1155 Audio: Integrated HD Audio USB Ports: 4x Rear USB 2.0 Ports | 2x Front USB 2.0 Ports Networking: Internal Gigabit Network Port Optical Drive: 22x DVD-Rw/CD-Rw Combo Drive Case: New* Black Mesh Atx Gaming Case Power Supply: 500 Watt Power Supply Warranty: Standard Two year warranty

it has a series of upgrades for example;

USB 54Mb/s WiFi Dongle

2x LED Red/Blue case fans to fit case

Premium Build & optimization + 2Yr warranty

all of this adds up to a total cost of £482.39 is this a good choice or not, all help will be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.

For that sort of cash you are not going to get a great gaming PC but it should be capable for a while. If you are going to have Windows 7 64bIT then definitely add the extra ram.

It would be better if you could post a link to the actual PC you are considering so we can have a better all round look.
