i am thinking of buying a second computer, (on vista premium)and wandered what you thought of this click here
it would be with out the screen and for gaming, pictures, dvd's etc.
i found it the shop without a monitor for £419.99.
if you find a different one could you keep it below £450 and from a big name eg. currys.
(i bought a compter off the net, it didnt work and it was a real hassle to send it back!)

I know you said you don't like buyimg online,
But never any hassle from them.

Curry's is partner of PC world, so you take your choice.

All the best.

They are flexible, and will sell you a unit only. I doubt if Curry's will remove the monitor from the deal.

X1650SE not up to much. 2GB RAM would be a lot better for some recent games.
