a quad or core 2 duo is better for gaming.

Look at the reviews at PCA click here - some of the systems there seem to offer better value for money. Most of those systems have 2Gb RAM, but additional 2Gb DDR2 667mhz can be had for only £25-30 nowadays.

I agree with citadel about Intel C2D/quad-core being better for gaming. G

I chose to purchase an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 PC and monitor from Dino PC, based on price and, the fact that they are located in London where I reside. In respect of initial teething issues with the item, a repair was followed by complete replacement of the unit. On each occasion, the turnaround was less than 24 hours. They partitioned the hard drive at no extra cost. Excellent. It would have been up to a week and a half, had I gone to PC World. Communications were thorough and considerate. When I got through on their 0870 telephone number, they were happy to phone me back immediately.
