You will be not happy with a HD8470 graphics card...especially not with games. And for designing, I'm not really sure if the power of this graphics card will be enough...depends of the used software.

What about an Nvidia GeForce GT 640? Isn't that one of the newest versions? And will 3.4GHz work?

I've heard about this version, and it is one of the best, am i right?

A few suggestions:
Mainstream

 AMD Radeon HD 7850 1 GB ~ $150
 AMD Radeon HD 7870 ~ $170
 Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 ~ $180
 Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti ~ $200

AMD HD 7770 GHz Edition ~ $90
AMD HD 7790 ~ $110
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 ~ $90
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti ~ $110

Edit: Maybe this test helps a bit: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/graphics/display/radeon-hd-7790-geforce-gtx-650ti-boost.html

I would try to buy a Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti or AMD HD 7790.
But before I forget, What's the resolution of your monitor? Do you playing 'currently' games? (This I asking, because you can wait and buy a graphics card, when Star Citizen is released - so we will know what the minimum GPU performence is needed to play this game in nice a resolution and quality.)
An Intel CPU has a graphics chip inside, you can use to wait for a good one graphics card.

Well, this system looks good. It have more RAM than the first PC and a nice CPU. Nice for creating movies and designing. I think, games should looks good on medium settings. This is a "complete PC", right?

Yeah it is. It is a completed computer. It doesn't come in parts.

Complete PCs have often good CPUs but the Graphics cards isn't the best. I prefer to buy the components and build a PC...

I have a step-brother that is working at a consumer electronics retailer, and he recommended me to buy a completed PC, not to build one. And he knows a lot of things, believe me.

That looks nice :) Only things I'd have done differently would be building it myself, more RAM, and Windows 7.

...working at a consumer electronics retailer, and he recommended...
Oh my...consumer retail is typically the last place you should go for PC advice. What you were told sounds close to what I'd hear at Worse Purchase. Pre-built PCs are definitely easier to get and set up, but lose out in just about every other area. Proprietary parts that are extremely overpriced or unavailable entirely are common issues with these PCs, especially motherboards. You can forget about motherboard or CPU upgrades. Some newer ones I've worked on also come with inadequate cooling that makes you wonder how it hasn't fried, 2.5" HDDs in a desktop, and other strange or bad designs.

A pre-built OEM PC will never match the advantages you get from one you build yourself. If you want to get the most out of a PC, the ability to overclock it, the ability to fix it with cheaper, standard parts, warranties on individual parts, the ability to upgrade any part easily, and the ability to reuse many parts when you upgrade, you should build it yourself. There's also the feeling of success when you get it together and it actually posts. :) :)

I say this based on 6 years of experience in PC building, and even more in repairs. Many others who work on computers will tell you the same, and even some serious gamers will say this.


(This post was supposed to be separate, but since I responded to the above and don't want to double post...)

I finally got myself some new hardware back in early June to replace my 2009 system.

Now I have this:
* AsRock Extreme4 990FX Motherboard (replaced an ASUS M4N78 PRO)
* AMD FX-8350 processor (replaced a Phenom II x4 940).
* 1TB HDD (the old HDD is now a slave alongside it)
* 16GB DDR3 1600 RAM (replaced 3GB of DDR2)
* Windows 7 Pro x64 (replaced XP)
* Added yet another fan (now have 6 in this thing)
* Reused nVidia GTS 450
* Reused 550W PSU
* Reused case
* Reused optical drive
* Reused floppy drive
* Reused serial port card
* Reused Wifi adapter

Total upgrade cost: ~$400, and I also have a now-unused Phenom II x4 940 and MoBo laying in my basement...
2010 was the year of the Na'vi.Vivar 'ivong Na'vi!

.... And much more


This i will wait one, because it will cost me €4400. But i might buy some other 3D design programs that cost less.

I see we are went off topic since reply #105...
A moderator should split and create a topic by these 'off-topic' reply.



If you are a student, you could buy Autodesk 3ds Max 2014 for $300-$400 as student licence.
For such programms, a good graphics card is a vantage.
