My mom doesn't wanna risk me ****ing anything up when I build my own, so I was looking for some prebuilt ones. This seemed like a good one for the price, but I was hoping you guys could help me out. If this is the wrong section, I apologize. Thanks guys.

I looked at the price then started looking over it and was thinking this was a good deal. Then I got to the graphics card. The graphics card is not good and would bottleneck your computer. You could buy that then buy a separate graphics card and install.

  • NVIDIA GeForce GT 530 GPU/VPU; produces astonishing, high-performance graphics
LMFAO. The CPU, RAM and HDD all look good (although the HDD is listed as a green product, so performance is reduced) although the OEM GPU is absolute crap for gaming.

Try to convince your mum to build your own computer. Say you will save hundreds of dollars (which you will), and it's a good life experience (which it is), and most reputable sites have at least a 30-day warranty on the parts so if something goes wrong you can just ship it back and get a replacement (which you will).

http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/ also has great prebuilt computers. I got mine around christmas and it was actually cheaper than if I had bought all the parts on newegg and made it myself, so you should be able to get a reasonable deal.
