But with this £1119 build... I'm sacrificing the following:
- Microsoft Office (£69)
- Processor Cooling (£15)
- Amazing Monitor: LG W2252TQ 22 Inch Widescreen: HDCP/DVI/2 ms (£179)
- Logitech Digital Precision Gaming Headset (£25)
- Surge Protection (? I'm not sure if the £1119 comes with it) (£14)
- Printer: HP Photosmart C5280 All-in-one (£59)
- Keyboard (£7)
- Mouse: Logitech G5 (£35)
- DVI cable (?) (£5)
And... I can upgrade my processor, RAM, and Sound Card to top-notch quality...
All of this for £1610
£1119 + £408 = £1527
I think that my second option is a much better deal... With the £1119 option, which appeared amazing at first sight, I see that it's lacking personal-essentials such as printer, office, amazing quality monitor, cooling (which makes me feel more comfortable), surge protection, great headset...
£1600 sounds like a lot for a gaming pc, but I'm not just getting a tower, I'm getting monitor, printer, accessories, and a GREAT gaming PC... Sure it may become obsolete, but I'm not even paying much extra for it, the only reason it is £1600 instead of £1200 is because of the accessories I'm getting. So, essentially, the tower of option #1 is weaker and in the same price-range as option #2, whereas option #2 offers not only a payment plan option, but also an all-in-one package that won't leave me running around picking up keyboard/mouse, etc...
What do you all think of my observations?
Thanks for the input!
