Desktop base unit for £500?

  lucozade9 15:56 03 Mar 2007

Could anyone give me any pointers as to what base unit to buy for around £500?

I already have a monitor and 5.1 from my current pc so im just after the base unit.

It will mainly be used for things such as email, surfing net, ms office and a bit of basic gaming so im not looking for any thing to fancy just something that will last and do the basics properly.

Cheers for your suggestions

Have a look at click here. Novatech have a first class reputation for aftersales support too.

Go into any PCW and ask to buy just the base unit without a monitor, they reduce the price by £100+

I bought a reasonable base unit from Novatech for £514 back in oct 06 .An excellent machine .They keep you fully informed when you order gave me a date then phone and asked if they could deliver 3 days earlier which they did using DHL well packed and with several back up CD`s for Motherboard DVD etc:

PS, you can customize one of their units by adding extra memory etc to bring up towards your budget
