I'm in the market for a new PC. I'm a graphic designer, so need a fair bit of power and ram. Haven't got a huge budget (£500 to £1k, preferably closer to the £500). I'm only after a base unit, nothing else. My current PC is a custom built AMD unit (was top of the range four years ago!).
I haven't been happy with the custom build, the thing has never seemed happy in it's own skin and want to go down the big brand route this time (dell, HP).
I always try and buy AMD, but I can't seem to find a brand name supplying machines with fast AMD chips in. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good AMD PC?
First time here, great site! Any help appreciated.
Hmmm . . . quite right. Currys highest priced AMD is about £300 while Comets top offering comes in at £499 for a AMD x4.
I agree with you about the custom build route. I did the same in 2001 and followed that up with an Acer off-the-shelf box in 2008-ish. It does everything I want, without all the bells and whistles hyped onto us by (what I would call) the "PC Review Industry".
Best of luck with your search and let us know what you eventually settled for (manufacturer, specs, price etc.).
I am not plugging solely for Novatech, because I have no interest in that company only as a previous customer. But Novatech and all the other companies mentioned do have product support and advice available, so it might pay to put your 6 core question to them. If on their advice you decide to go ahead with a purchase, then you would have stronger grounds for a rejection if the purchase or product recommended didn't turn out to your expectations.
