I'm looking at buying a new desktop pc and was wondering if anyone has any experience of chilliblast or cyberpower desktops. I do not have a great technical knowledge about pc's so would appreciate some help please.
If you buy the monitor separately you'll get a wider choice. I have both 19" and 22" monitors and the 22" I think are better.
Probably a starting point for a specification:
CPU - E8400 or E8500
Graphics Card - ATI HD4850 (4870 if you plan a bigger monitor)
Hard Disk - 1 or 2 500GB Samsung F1
RAM - 2GB PC800 or PC1066
DVD Writer - Any really or a Blu-Ray drive
Motherboard - Any that supports the above CPU's and 800 or 1066MHz RAM. I prefer Asus but there's other excellent manufacturers as well.
PSU - Branded 600W e.g. OCZ, Corsair, BeQuiet, Thermatake, Antec. (Corsair and BeQuiet make quiet PSUs)
Case - at least 1 120mm intake and 1 120mm exhaust fan. Bigger cases can give you better airlfow. 120mm fans tend to be quieter than smaller ones.
OS - Vista Home Premium.
I haven't bought from Cougar Extreme them but some forum members have and rate them click here
The Chillblast Fusion Anoconda at £1000 with a 22" Monitor is a good specification although I'm not aware of that brand of monitor. The graphics card is outclassed by the ATI 4850/4870 but isn't available as an option in that package.
