Hi all, just seen Aldi are selling a computer system this Sunday. Thinking of getting one, I want to be able to play games such as Call Of Duty on it. Opinions wanted on if it's good value for money.

It looks a very good buy and the graphics card was just released recently so it is likely to play the latest games. The HD is huge I think you would find it hard to get more bang for your buck anywhere else.

I take it the price is for the workstation only,Keyboard and Monitor to be bought seperately.Could do with a new computer,Whats your verdict then,Last week or week before someone was saying about the lack of USB ports on them , hope I got that right.

I use a Medion at home and I will buy another Medion when I replace this one. They are excellent computers, use good quality components and are very reliable. Aldis' price is good but they usually sell out very quickly...be warned.

Heres my advice. I would not suggest purchasing a new computer from Aldi, you probably have no technical support and it will likely be unreliable. I have seen a laptop in aldi before and it was made from a company i had never heard of. I suggest Dell, i hear they do a Pentium 4 pc with a 19 inch monitor, keyboard, mose and speakers for 399 pounds. Then, with the remaining money purchase an Nvidia 7600 GT to put inside it, then it should be a gaming machine and for around 490 pounds!. If you want more RAM you can pick those up cheap as well.

'you probably have no technical support and it will likely be unreliable'..you know this for a fact? I have used the Medion helpline a couple of times and they have been excellent. Try sticking to facts.
