Hello people
Im what you might call a noob when it comes to buying or knowing anything much about pc's, so i would appreciate some advice. I am planning on buying the Carrera vision c4i-pca-11 (as it is in my price range-£500-£650), which i will use primaraly for games. The web site that sales it offers upgrades-build your own type thing-So i was hoping for some advice on what components would be best upgraded. The specs for the pc are in the Nov issue, at the top of the super budget chart, and the web site is savastore. Thanks for any help

pj123 link does not seem to work.

What they are trying to point out is that there have been a number of threads highlighting concerns with Watford Electronics (Savastore) who own Carrera. This is probably the worst of the threads click here

bremner, thanks, you're right. Why it doesn't work I don't know. Think I will leave it with your link.

But, just in case. I have tried it again.

I give up. The search engine doesn't seem to be very good.

The search engine's fine - you've posted links to timeout urls. Bremner's link is to an actual thread url.
