Hi all

Sorry if this question has been asked before..
(i have searched but most other "similar" queries either don't have the same budget or are out of date.

If you have £1500 - £1800 to spend, what PC would you buy?

It needs to include a monitor and decent sound card & speakers), but exclude mouse/keyboard.

I've been looking for a while but just can't make my mind up, so any advice helps
