Is it worth buying and upgrading?

Hey, I'm looking for a gaming PC but kinda lost in the market.

So I found a PC on Amazon:

------------------------------------------------------------------

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B008LZHBXU/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=ASDKXGZBT8NCZ&psc=1

------------------------------------------------------------------

It has 3 monitors and somewhat good components for 450€. What I'm thinking is to upgrade CPU at first to 8350 and add SSD, maybe later upgrade other components too. My question is, is it worth buying for my 500€ limit, or should I invest in something else. And yes I do need monitors and everything.  (Sorry for bad English, not native)

AMD FX quad core with an Intel stock cooler? This looks fishy, but if it's legit then upgrading would be worth it. 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It's now 400

 

It's a good deal if you need so many monitors, but dont bother upgrading the CPU to another AM3+ socket one. Your upgrade after adding in an SSD should be to Ryzen directly, meanwhile ditching DDR3 and the motherboard. FX just isnt good for games, 4 core or 8 core doesnt improve it to good levels..

The FX series of CPUs is not a platform worth investing in. You can find a 21 inch 1080p panel for under 100 euro.

i used to have an older AMD cpu, their old stock coolers look incredibly similar to intels.

 

anyways. OP. if you think it isnt a scam go for it. those monitors alone are already maybe half the price of that system, same for the 1060. do upgrade the CPU though.... i had a CPU very similar to whats in there and it does not perform that well in games.

Down to having the logo on the cooler? The images shown display that.

Amazon has purchase protection right? If OP is safe to get a refund then there's no trouble in experimenting with the purchase.

Biggest tell that it's a scam or not pics of the real thing?

The so called "1060" has SLI fingers and dual 6-pin power cables, neither of which are true of actual 1060 3GB cards (especially the SLI part)

If it's anything like Paypal and eBay, sellers can shift the money before there is a dispute and abandon the account putting Amazon on the hook and the scammers still have the money

AHA! I figured it out!

They have pictures of one system to bring you in but the green thing you can barely see in the description is what you end up getting

Oh God that thing is hideous
