I am looking to buy a fairly powerful computer, my budget is £600. I've looked around and found Cougar Extrem gave the best deal. This is my system config:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66 GHz 4Mb Cache
2GB Kingston DDR 667
300GB SATA Hard Drive
8025-C43 Midi Case
256Mb Nvidia 8600GT graphics card DX10
QC - Gigabyte GA-N650SLI-DS4 1333fsb-DDR800x4 SLI (Dual graphics)
DVD+/- RW - 18X Samsung Lightscribe
Floppy Drive - SILVER
19 Inch OCTIGEN TFT Monitor MA9CKA
Wireless Optical Deskset DS-3400D
Integrated Sound Card
Intergrated Monitor Speakers
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Inc SP2 (Don't want Vista)
13 Month Warranty
Free Carriage

Price: £597.13

Is this a good deal? Is there anything I should change? If so click [url=click here]here[/url] to see other options.

That 13 month warranty may be a bit unlucky

Seems like a pretty good spec.
An Octigen 22" monitor got a pretty good review in this month's PC Pro, saying it was a fairly good monitor considering the low price, so your monitor may well be good, providing Octigen aren't the sort of company that just badge up any old TFT available.

Thats am extrmly good system for te money.. you wont find any cheapor ones.. my only down is the intergrated speakers in the monitor but pop down to argos and buy some for 20 quid and that is the best budget computer ever!!

good luck!

Ok, I'll buy some of Cougra, it's only £5 more. Thanks for the comments.
