For £375 you can buy a quad-core computer with 8GB of RAM and an AMD Radeon HD 6670 graphics card; that’s what you’d pay Vibox, an Ebay retailer with more than 10,000 positive feedbacks. That’s a lot of bang for the buck especially if you have an OS license lying around.
A closer look at the computer’s specification reveals some interesting titbits; there’s an AMD FX4170 processor, only released back in February, which carries four cores clocked at 4.2GHz, comes with 4MB L2 cache and a TDP of 125W.
The processor is fitted to an MSI 760GM-P34 (FX) motherboard - a mATX model that automatically overclocks your processor within one second, and features two DIMM sockets, a D-Sub port, DVI, PS2 ports, GbE, Realtek ALC887 codec HD Audio, PCIe x16, PCIe x1 and PCI slots, six SATA3 connectors, and up to 10 USB 2.0 ports. All in all a decent but older generation motherboard that lacks some of the newer technologies like SATA6 or USB 3.0.
The rest of the specification list reads as follows; 8GB of Mustang 1,333MHz DDR3 RAM, a 2TB hard disk drive, an AMD Radeon HD 6670 with 2GB of RAM, a free game worth £29.99 (Dirt Showdown), a gaming case with a 450W standard PSU, one-year warranty but no operating system (you can get Windows 8 release preview for free, possibly until the end of September).
