Not a bad spec, but abit pricey for 700 quid

Oops... just noticed "Spec Below For £408" on the site

£408 isn't bad for that computer (as stated on the site)

  Killuminati 20:01 01 Jun 2006

What about for the whole thing as stated above (w/ all upgrades) ?

Is it fairly priced or do you think I could get something similar for cheaper ?

Would you say it is better than this one from dell ?

Like the man says " You pays your money and takes your choice".

If this is what you intend to go for, why not ?, then next week/month there may be a better system, but if you do that you will never buy a system.

The question to ask is "Will it do all I want it to ?"
If the answer is yes, then go for it.

What exactly are you buying the computer for? Gaming? Word Processing? Internet?

  Killuminati 20:12 01 Jun 2006

Yeah, but I'd like to know that the thing I'm paying for is worth the money

Do you thnk it's reasonable for the price ?


  Killuminati 20:14 01 Jun 2006

All three, mostly surfing the internet, downloading/storing music and videos, moderately concerned with games but not too much...
