  1. Im knew to gaming on pc so I don't know much about the specs and stuff and I was wondering what sort of games I could run on this and if it isn't great what you would recommend, the only problem is that I have a $650 max budget

    Specs:
    MODEL : X GAMER AM1 GT-730 SUPER MAX
    * AMD ATHLON 5350 QUAD CORE 2.05Ghz Socket AM1 64bit CPU
    * nVidia GT-730 GAMING Graphics GPU (Direct X 12)
    * Multi-Video out support with HDMI/DVI/RGB Ports (Run two monitors at once)
    * 16gig 1600Mhz DDR3 Gaming Grade Memory DUAL CHANNEL
    * SATA-3 3tb 7200rpm Hard Drive
    * SATA DVD DUAL LAYER Burner DVD/ DVDRW / CD / CDRW
    * RealtekĀ® ALC887 codec High Definition Audio 2/4/5.1/7.1-channel

    AM1 CPU's are not for gaming. Also that has no operating system installed. And that $650 is Australian dollars?

    Well, at least it will run solitaire. That's a joke, kinda like this "X GAMER" system. Seriously, AM1 is for tablet SOCs, low-powered and definitely not for gaming. GT-730 is also a very lame $55 GPU. You'd be better off with a console at that budget. However, for a much better Athlon 860K/GTX 960 system, you can buy all the parts, including operating system, for $550 USD - but you would have to assemble it yourself. If you need help, there are hundreds of Youtube videos that show you how. With your budget constraints, learning how to build a PC is your best option, and the build I mentioned will play most games at medium or high settings@1080p. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/bqtLJV
