I recently bought this desktop computer after upgrading from my 5+ year old computer and it is a very great purchase. Before i begin, I'd like to say do not buy it off amazon, because its overpriced. I bought mine from the HP website for about $200 less. First i will give a review, then some pros and cons, then i will describe my experience with a few games that i have played.
This computer is blazing fast. It has a 3rd Gen Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge with Turbo Boost 2.0. This processor is one of the best desktop processors you can buy right now. It has 8gb DDR3 memory which is more than enough for gaming, or whatever else you plan to do. If for any reason you need more, you have room for 8 more gigabytes to install in :). The hard drive is 1TB which is more than enough and fits everything. If for any reason you need more hard drive space, this desktop is expandable to up to 2 more internal hard drives! The graphics card, AMD Radeon 7570 1gb ddr3 is very powerful despite what benchmarks and other people may say. Ive played many games with it and it hasn't given me a problem. Paired with an i7, this machine can handle anything you throw at it. The desktop also comes with FREE Adobe(R) Premiere Elements & Photoshop 10, and Microsoft office starter. The computer itself is very, very quiet! So quiet, you think it might be turned off! Even when doing lots of things on it, such as creating videos or playing games, its still very quiet! And it never gets hot.Read more ›
Ways to save money:
-Dont upgrade the RAM online if buying directly from HP. Amazon sells equal of better/faster RAM for WAY less! Stick with the STD 8GB and upgrade later, super easy to install new RAM chips.
- Unless you're a serious "Tweaker", no need for the upgrade to K model of CPU. Over-clocking is for those game online for hours at a time per day... not the "ocassional Flight Simulator, think I'll try SIMS 3 every now and then crowd" like myself. The standard i-7 3770 CPU is MORE than fast enough for most who buy it. Save yourself the $100. Odds are you couldn't see the difference to the naked eye for the "day-to-day" things we do on our computer.
- Don't by the Solid State HD (SSD) if buying from HP. SSDs are older models (Intel Potsville and or Samsung 470), depending on the size. HP ask $300 on website. You can buy newer model Samsung elsewhere for $60 less and TWICE the performance/speed (see below)
OLD Model Sold by HP Cost $300
250MB/s Read Speed
220MB/s Write Speed
3Gbps Data Transfer Rate
Newer Models (Samsung 840 PRO) COST $240 (Sold everywhere, Amazon, Direct, BestBuy, Micro Center, etc.)
540MB/s Read Speed
520MB/s Write Speed
6Gbps Data Transfer Rate
Things you should buy if customizing:
- 600 watt Power Supply (PS). Cost $100 on HP website. Why? About the same price to upgrade should you decide to it yourself later, without the hassle of trying to sell the standard 300W PS to get cash for new PS. Also, 600W is more than enough to run 97% of the highend video cards should you upgrade GPU at a later time.
-Wifi upgrade w/ bluetooth.Read more ›
-- If you buy this computer on Amazon as shown, you are starting out with a quiet, cool-running system with a very nice case, a motherboard with a fast PCI Express 3.0 slot for a graphics card, lots of USB ports (including two fast USB 3.0 ports on top), a decent Wi-Fi card, an excellent Ivy Bridge i7 processor that you don't have to bother overclocking to play DirectX 11 games, and Windows 7 Home Premium which you can upgrade to 64-bit Win 7 Ultimate if you feel the need. So what's the best way to kick this system to a new level? If it were me, I'd buy two more matching 4GB DR3 RAM modules from Newegg to push your total RAM to 16 GB (for about $50), replace the stock AMD Radeon 1GB HD 7570 video card with a Gigabyte 2GB GeForce GTX 660 (for $209, also from Newegg), and replace the 300W power supply with a 600W power supply to give your video card and system the overhead it needs (also for about $50-70). Sure, it brings the cost, without a monitor, to $1400 and change. But you end up with a system that lets you play virtually any game, craft any video, edit any photo, or do any sort of serious applications work you want, super quick, slick and elegant.
-- Truth is, the above option is the only one to follow if you want to get the best value for your buck. Building a desktop on HP.com, which is what I did recently with this model, only works if you want to make absolutely sure (a) that you won't buy any extras you don't need; and (b) that you'll have the combination of core components you really want. (The exception in HP's options for this model is the graphics card: it's just not powerful enough to take on the best games, or run multiple screens at high resolutions.Read more ›
