Hey all, my first post and Im hoping you guys can help.

Im looking to purchase a new gaming machine, my budget is around £2500, and I want the best I can get for my money, this budget needs to include a monitor, and an OS.

Is there any sites / companies you would recommend, or specific machines?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

You are my hero, having £2500 to spend on a new gaming computer is just amazing.

You should click here

You will get an absolute monster for that sort of money from these guys. I bought of them recently and they are very good, excellent after sales support.

Where did you find that PC you listed for 1000 or so.. cant find it anywhere.

  kiddgame2000 08:32 11 Jul 2006

You will find it if you click here and then go to their top of the line SLI gaming package and modify it to those specifications.

£1,035.38 is the price delivered to your door (if you live in england or wales) with tax, delivery and V.A.T included.

kiddgame2000, I think they have made a mistake on that price.

If you choose a slightly less spec'ed machine, with the AMD AM2 Dual Core 64 X2. 4600 the machine comes in at over £1700.

I doubt they would honour the £1000 price. The CPU on it's own retails for £500, and the grfxs cards would retail around £700 for the two of them.

I have checked and you are right, it must have something to do with the fact that it says coming soon beside the processor, perhaps it is not being added to the total.

I thought it was an extremly good price for such a powerful computer.

for a moment there I thought that spec for that price was excellent, I was ready to type in about maybe buying it myself:)):)) At least you tried
