  1. If you spend $99 more (on Amazon) you can get the Acer Predator Orion 3000. I've owned one for almost a year and it is a good entry level PC for this budget, in my opinion. Good looking PC, good size and decent specs. CPU: 3.20GHz Intel Core i7-8700 (six-core, up to 4.6GHz) Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (8GB GDDR5) This is more than sufficient for the games you mentioned, plus AAA games, provided you set the settings to recommended. From UserBenchmark, the 6GB version of this card runs CSGO smoothly and gets up to 221 FPS. Larger games, such as GTA V, run at around 69 FPS, something you'd expect from a PS4 or Xbox. Noticeable after long sessions on CSGO, but not really a major difference. RAM: 8GB DDR4 Not the best, but sufficient as long as you don't intend to run GTA V and CSGO and 40 chrome tabs side by side. I'd recommend upgrading to 16GB eventually. Storage: 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD Good storage options, as I doubt you'd fill up the 1TB+256 GB worth of storage any time soon. Ports: 1x USB-C 3.1. 3x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, 3x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI, 1x DVI Once again, good, you can put your keyboard, mouse, plus mic or whatever else. Good display outputs too. Operating system: Windows 10 Home 64-bit English Camera: none Size: 340 x 130 x 350mm (HxWxD) Hope this helps! I'll look around for alternatives if the price is too high.
  2. Howdy all, bit of a longer post here, but I feel context is necessary. My cousin owns a two year old Acer Aspire AXC230 desktop. An office PC, and the lowest spec machine of the AXC series, its woefully slow. But thats to be expected from a low end PC, you get what you pay for. The PC runs an AMD E1-7010 CPU which after a Google search turned up to be one of the slowest and worst CPU's out there. Considering its for a netbook, I wondered why it was in this desktop in the first place. Anyway, the PC is literally only able to run about 3 Firefox tabs at a time, and is good for spreadsheets, Word editing, etc. Usually, all he does is browse Facebook or eBay. Recently he got into Civ VI and Stardew Valley, and, whilst Stardew runs fine (pixel graphics bro) Civ was laggy as heck on the integrated graphics. I bought him a GT710 to fix this, and now it runs at about 35-40 FPS, which is fine. However, the CPU on the other hand is a different story. While inspecting task manager (just because it runs low end games ok doesnt mean it stopped freezing!), I noticed the CPU was at 99% constantly, whether on the desktop, typing documents or even playing Civ. At first I just thought that it was some background tasks or something, but even after checking then it still doesnt make a lot of sense of why the CPU is running this hard all the time. I thought about an upgrade until I looked into it and realised the CPU was soldered onto the motherboard. Does anyone know why this CPU is throttled when I'm literally on the desktop with no apps running? Thanks guys!
