    Great Gaming Desktop for the Value

    Posted .

    I was looking for a second gaming desktop for my oculus because I want to use it in the living room in my 65"4k TV, with more space to move vs my desk area. I wanted something with a simple design (Not Gaming), and a good price. I already have a gaming desktop that I build my self and I did not what to build another. Out of the box, I was able to play my Oculus Rift games (Robo Recall, Zombie Riot & Batman VR) & other Games like Overwatch @4k, Doom@1440 Ultra, and others. If you check the Benchmark picture with the Bars those are from, 1- Out of the box, 2- Bios update, 3- SSD (256gb) + SSHD 2TB Upgrade & 4- Another 8gb DDR4 2666mhz dimm for a total of 16. (*Specs say. ram supported is ddr4 2400mhz but actually came with a 2666mhz). The 2nd picture is a test with 3DMark (Benchmark For Gaming devices) with this HP stock vs an Asus Rog Laptop that I got like a week before (i7 7700hq, 16GB, SSd + HHD & GTX 1060 3gb) and I exchange it for this one. Pros: Slim design, Front has a green LED line, Out of the Box Enough power to play most of the games in the market at 1080 or 1440p (and some @ 4k), Upgradeable (with some space limitations), A lot of USB ports including a Type C & SD Reader, GPU included RX580 4gb, Support 2666mhz ddr4 ram and the CPU can be exchanged later for a Ryzen 2600X or 2700X. Note: The Ryzen 5 2400G has Vega 11 APU in but you will not use it at all. Cons: Power Supply is not a standard size (Cant upgrade easily) still a 400w. No bios option to Adjust nothing (I try two Corsair x8 ddr4 Ram 3400mhz but can not be OC or adjusted so the MOBO set it to basic speed 2133mhz), Only one fan to exhaust the hot air. A basic Pavilion Keyboard and Mouse for a Desktop called "Pavilion Gaming" and some times problems with wifi if I leave the desktop in sleep mode (Working in a solution). So, is a great deal for the price (Got it on sale for 679.99) Anything closer to this prices will have less performance or an older CPU or lower GPU. If you want to play just E-Games like Fortnite, or Over watch you can get another Pavilion with out the RX580 and Use the Vega 11 in the 2400G, for a few bucks less... But I will recommend to spend the extra money.

    Excellent Entry Level PC for a Good Price

    Posted .

    I bought this PC on sale a week before Christmas for $530 and to be honest it was a great deal. I wouldn't pay its regular price of $760-$830 simply because at that point you are better off building your own PC. This PC is a great starter for someone who wants to enter the world of PC gaming. The CPU is an iffy choice by HP, as it has integrated graphics which aren't even used since there is already a solid graphics card in this thing (RX 580 4 GB). The CPU also only has 4 cores, so I would have much rather preferred the Ryzen 5 2600 instead of the Ryzen 5 2400G inside this PC, since the 2600 has 6 cores. The case doesn't allow for much air flow and there is only one stick of RAM which can be easily upgraded in the future along with the CPU. Despite this, the PC is well put together and setup is super easy. I can run Fortnite on this thing at 60-80 FPS on epic settings, but with low settings I am able to maintain a solid 100-200 frames per second, with the average being around 130 FPS If you catch this thing on sale, pull the trigger and buy it if you were already considering buying it. I don't regret buying this beast as it is one of the best starter PCs out there.
