The system you linked to will be fine for what you'll be using it for, except for graphics-intensive games.

Btw, value-wise it appears not too bad for a readymade PC. However, if you were to build your own, you'll probably get the best of both worlds - quality components & value. Prices of most components have fallen so much recently, that it's becoming increasingly difficult to buy a readymade PC that's better value than a self-build.

Coming back to the system, what games do you play/thinking of playing on this PC?

I'm sure you can appreciate the difference between 'light gaming' & playing 'heavy' games occasionally. E.g. If you're thinking of playing the heavy-on-resources Crysis on medium-high settings, you'll need a much better graphics card (GPU) than the 8600GT that ships with this PC. On the other hand, if it's something 'light' like the SIMS, then this GPU would be more than adequate. G

"and also what are cube247 like?"

My opinion of Cube 247 was not very good, but that's my opinion. I certainly wouldn't consider using them again as I found their PC's at best mediocre.

A much better place to purchase from IMO is Cougar Extreme, top quality PC's with a vast choice of build options/components. I got a PC from them around 4-5 months ago and I am delighted, top quality build inside and out.

Sorry inmymind I have never had any experience of dinopc or heard of them. :-)

Regarding Cougar Extreme, if you do a search on here for Cougar Extreme you will see how highly they are thought of. :-)
