£250 Zoostorm desktop PC: Quad core, 8GB of RAM, 2TB HDD

Ebuyer has managed to source yet another superb desktop computer from Zoostorm, the 7873-1078, one that costs a mere £250 with free delivery and comes with some shockingly good components.

It has an AMD A6-3670K APU clocked at 2.7GHz with four cores and 4MB cache. There’s also 8GB of RAM, upgradable to 16GB, a 2TB SATA HDD, a DVD writer, AMD Radeon HD 6530D graphics, a motherboard with an AMD A55 chipset, a 300W PSU, 5.1 High Definition Audio and a decent mATX tower case with two free external bays.

Expansion slots include a PS2 port D-Sub, DVD-D, six USB ports, GbE connector, PCI-e x16, PCI-e x2 and another PCI slot.

Arguably, this desktop PC will not be powerful enough to run recent games at high definition but you can easily remedy that by installing a dedicated graphics card.

Likewise, this Zoostorm PC doesn’t come with an operating system, a keyboard, a mouse or a monitor which means that it is deliberately targeting those looking for an upgrade workstation rather than a new desktop altogether. It’s also worth noting that it doesn’t have a card reader.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
