I give up. I thought PC was easy and cheap. Too bad it was the opposite. Niw I really hate PCs. I wish I bought laptop instead. I have a laptop with i5 2430 with 525M which runs games better than this desktop.

Well mate you could have avoided all tha if you had asked. Could have even built one prsonally I reckon Acer are not that good from what I have see of them and the department i work in has problems non stop with them.

Well I suppose if it is a good laptop then you are set but beefing it up is not going to be so easy.

Yes I know KB I think Erkronos did not really research terribly well before buying thats why I mentioned asking in my last post.

Suppose the alternative would be to sell that one off to a casual user and get something a little more capable or build?.

Well, it happens to everybody from time to time. Awhile back, I bought a pre-built HP desktop, AMD based, and while it was a good PC, upgrade options were VERY limited. I did the best I could and upgraded the PSU, GPU, RAM, and installed an SSD......all over time. After those upgrades, it was like a brand new computer and I got a few more years out of it. Some of those parts went into my next build, and I restored the HP back to factory specs and sold it. So yes, the price of upgrading CAN be a little much at first, but it does leave you options later on.

Sorta sounds like a prebuilt I bought from my current supplier that I "renovated" and sent to my brother in.the UK I stuck in or rather shoehorned in an Arctic Freezer 13 and a Gigabyte Ge Force 650 and more RAM which when I got found was rather tall and the Arctic sorta came very close to it.

Replaced the spinner with an SSD and then again shoehorned the spinner in for data. Was quite a job but it turned out ok in the end - well apart from the shipping and the rotten customs slapping an import duty on it which really got up my nose as it was a gift.

I recommend looking into building your own computer. You are free to PM me for more information.

He's griping about the cost of upgrading his video card and having to upgrade his PSU as well........I don't think he's in the market to build a completely new PC, even if it IS the best choice in his situation. Maybe I'm wrong...
