or

Something along these lines. A midrange i5, a GTX 1060/RX 480/RX 580, and a case that means you can upgrade parts as you need to rather than have to start fresh. You'll crush games at 1080p, far more than an All-in-One.

Now, you'll get better parts building it yourself, but if you want pure pre-built, this is the route I would go.

What's your GPU? And what i5 do you have?

It's almost certainly no, if you're talking 1080p at reasonable settings/fps. There's a range from terrible to literal slideshow, depending on what integrated GPU your i5 has (though I do find it slightly weird to not know what you just purchased).

You'll get about 15-30 FPS at 800x600 at the lowest settings with that integrated GPU. So, no, not really. Do you still have the option to return this PC? This is an all-in-one so there's essentially nothing you can do to make this into something you can game on; it's essentially a very immobile basic laptop with a large screen.

Sometimes when we've learned a thing or two about an extremely large and complex subject, we tend to forget that other folks, who might be a darned sight smarter than we are, but not necessarily in our specialist subject. It is for just that situation that Tom's exists.

The OP asked a question in advance of receiving his purchase and didn't need to be told it was a bad buy for that specific game. Is not a "literal slideshow" just a tad over the top in the circumstances?

He clearly wants to run GTA V well or he wouldn't have asked. It's not a value judgment; but he likely has a limited window for the option to exchange for something that better fits his needs. And yes, the integrated GPU on an Nehalem i5 *would* *literally* be a slideshow in GTA V. I'm not going to lie to the guy.

Hey man,
I actually ended up returning that pc with the i5. Now I'm probably going to get a pc which is also an all in one and has very good specs compared to the other one I returned. Here are the specs. Intel core i7 6th gen, 16 GB RAM, NVIDIA geforce GTX 950M, graphics card, 2GB Dedicated Video Memory, 1TB HDD. Can I run GTA 5 smoothly in this pc at very high or Medium Setting. Here is a link which will give a better idea!https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/hp-envy-27-all-in-one-pc-intel-core-i7-6700t-1tb-hdd-128gb-ssd-16gb-ram-nvidia-geforce-gtx-950m/10481737.aspx?

I would recommend not getting an all-in-one; it has all the disadvantages of a laptop combined with the disadvantages of a desktop as they're nearly impossible to upgrade meaningfully. This will not run GTA V well at 1080p, though it will if you can use 720p or 768p.

Hey, can you recommend me a pc which can actually run games. If not, will this pc run it at 60 fps if I play on 720p. Maybe 50-60p. Or just tell me which one is good! THX

Prebuilt only or are you willing to build yourself? Do you need a new monitor, too?
