WIKI POST

Graphics card is equivalent of a Nvidia GTX 750ti.

This unit can play most any current gen game at high settings and decent frame rates at 1080p, including GTA V. This unit is superior hardware compared to PS3 and 360.

It includes Windows 8.

It has USB 3.0 ports for use of external drives

It is advised to replace the 500GB, 5400 RPM drive the unit comes with an SDD for best experience.

Read the linked reviews -- you are getting a lot of machine for your money here:
http://www.techspot.com/review/93...page4.html

The Alpha is a very good value when considering the parts inside. A quick system mockup using parts from Newegg - including a cheap Core i3 CPU, GTX 750 Ti graphics card, 4 GB of DDR3-1600, a wireless-AC card, wireless Xbox 360 controller, and a compact-ish case - costs $540. [That comparison] isn't nearly as compact, and doesn't include a Windows license. Alienware has hit the nail on the head in this respect. Despite the issues with hard drive performance, generally speaking you'll see overall system performance better than that of the current generation consoles. All games I tested were playable at 1080p and decent frame rates, and this is without turning down graphics levels significantly from the maximum. If you're playing a game that escapes HDD-related stutter, the experience is sharper and better than any console on the market today.

pretty close to the microcenter deal at 300. I'm waiting till at least gen 2, if they make em. I would definitely get this over another console if I was in the market for one. tu

How would this work as as simultaneous HTPC? I'm not looking for just a console replacement.

Excellent deal, toss another 4gb ram in and you'll be able to play any game out there.

You would need at least another 2gb ram since witcher 3 requires 6gb min.

Otherwise your right at or under the min specs. It should run though, but I cant say how well.

You could probably run it at well at 720P.

Probably quite well. I'm using a nettop PC with much lower specs to stream using Kodi. This runs Windows 8.1 so it would be a simple matter of installing Kodi and having it run on startup. There are tutorials online to have Kodi launch Steam into big picture so you can seamlessly go from Kodi to Steam. Same can also be done for emulators of your choice if you're into that too.

I've been tempted by these deals, but I feel like I wouldn't want to give up all the upgrade flexibility of a PC. The portability/size is appealing and makes it seem convenient, but since I already have a PS4 that I can lug around on occasion, I don't know that I need another console-like device.
