We are considering this for some gaming.
Has anyone any idea is this a good buy at £899? Also what about their after sales service. Which we consider important.
We were looking at a Mesh but their after sales service sounds non-existent.
Any advice please.

Post the specs, please, and we'll be able to comment.

Dnjl: I bought the Cube Zuben ST9 base unit (with a couple of upgrades and requests) a couple of months ago and I've had no problems at all. The PC arrived three days after ordering. The computer was well put together and the inside of the case was all cable tidied and nicely routed. I can't talk about after sales service as I've not had to use them, as i've not had any problems. They are willing to change some components for you if you require (I don't like their cases, so upgraded to a Antec p180b (+£50 but very worth it IMO) and upped my processor etc. I'd recommend them as a company without hesitation.

As for the specs of the machine you're looking at, they're here:

Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
AMD Athlon X2 4600+ Dual Core CPU
2048MB Corsair DDR II 667 Memory
320GB SATA II Seagate Data Storage
NEC 7170 Multi Format DVD/CD ReWriter
nVidia GeForce 7900GS 512MB PCI Express Graphics Card – Awesome Game Play!
ASUS Deluxe Motherboard
Sony Floppy Disk Drive
19” Widescreen TFT 5MS Flat Panel Screen
Logitech Multimedia Keyboard
Logitech Optical Mouse
Creative Inspire 5800 5.1 Speaker System
12 x USB2 Ports

I would say not a bad buy for £899....other's may disagree. The sheer number of USB ports are very handy, I've found.
