    Im sorry for shouting in my title but i really am in desperate need for help.

    My grandad needs a new desktop pc but he needs it quick because he orders his food etc and is desperatly looking for a holiday for my gran etc(not so much of a problem cos ive told him he can come to mine and ill help him with that) but he wants it also for playing sims on it.

    He plays like boat sims, train sims and on and on and will want to have them all on at the same time.

    please please advise?

    Thanx in advance.

    ps. he is insistant he orders one as soon as.

    someone else posted this

    Mass Effect i5 @ 4.3Ghz

    or is this overkill?

    No problem mate, this is quite a decent build so your grandad will be more than happy I'm sure. Also you won't have to upgrade it anytime soon, unless he moves onto more hardcore games :p

    Not sure about the responses, I wouldn't take it personally :p

    Forums are quiet at the moment: post holiday/olympics withdrawal symptoms? Nothing wrong with your question.

    Thanks for the responses, i managed to get him a spare laptop in the meantime but ive had my orders today to now pick this laptop as a matter of urgency.

    PS and thankyou to the earlier responses.

    Im close to telling him to go with this scan system thats posted here unless there are any other ideas.

    Just thought id come on and check if there were any other options and it would seem NOT!

    So im gonna tell him to go for this scan system.

    This is my last appeal !

    The GFX card seems to have changed to the GTX 650 since it was recently released, I would revert it back to the Radeon 7770 which is what I believe it was before. It offers better performance than the gtx 650 and is the cheaper card!
