I have been recently shopping around for a new PC. I would like some opinions on a few systems that I've gotten quotes for. I'm looking for a decent system that’ll last me at least a few years – I’ll probably game on it a moderate amount, but the system doesn't have to be very powerful – just so I can play Starcraft 2 and WoW, and the occasional new game at average settings.
I priced out this system at Tiger Direct:
Asus 287-k Motherboard
GTX 760 Video Card
Wifi Card n600
for about $1700 Cdn (that’s about $1560 USD)
I was also recommended to a small family-owned computer shop that offered me a slightly modified HP system – the model number is e2b07ut#aba – here are the general specs:
Intel Xeon e3-1245v3 Processor
8 Gb Ram
Windows 7 Pro
3-year on-site HP warranty
And they've also added in a Blu-Ray combo and a Sapphire Radeon R7240. The price for this unit is $1000 Cdn – around $920 USD. I know that this system is missing a few things from the above build, but I could get them to change a few things (Power supply and video card particularly) if I wanted to upgrade the HP system.
What are your opinions of these systems?
Thanks in advance.
