Forums - PC Discussion - Quick question, are any of these computers good for gaming?

I need a quick yes or no to these two computers, simple question, are they good for gaming?

I like this one because it comes with a 27" HP 2711x Diagonal LED Display Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Or this one, no monitor but maybe more suited for gaming?

so which, if any would work out? If not does anyone have a link to a prebuilt computer that would work around the $750 price range?

They're both OK for gaming. They would both be fantastic for gaming with better GPUs.

Is that something that could be upgraded in the future?

Yep. I wouldn't recommend those computers, you can find better for gaming for $800, I'll look some up for you if you want.

Yes please, I'm brand new at the whole PC gaming scene so I have no idea what I need. The $800 one I posted in the OP just tempted me because that monitor would work great with my ps3 also, but if the computer wont work well I guess it's better to find something that will.

Lmfao a good monitor. Dude 32 inch Vizio is what i use for my PC and PS3. After i found out that my Graphics card uses a mini Hdmi, i went and bought a mini hdmi to hdmi converter and boom hooked it up to my TV. The only thing i wish i did was buy a TV with Picture-in-Picture.



For the first one, I don't know much about AMD but it's quad core so it's probably decent. Actually I looked I this website, And based I this chart the second pc has a much better processor than the first.

However it seems that the second pc has a better graphics card than the first. It's a toss up.
I would reccommend the XPS because my XPS laptop  can run most games on at least medium settings. I usually have no problem running my games on high settings with low shadow and water detail settings. I don't care too much about that kinda stuff.

XPS computers are known for their high performance. It's basically the next level down from Alienware.
I think HP Pavilions are more business grade, so I suggest the XPS



 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Gaming on: PS4, PC, 3DS. Got a Switch! Mainly to play Smash
