The tough part of the question specifies playing games - some people would spend half your budget on a graphics card for gaming.

That looks good but is a little bit too expensive right now when you add postage, the gaming part is the least important, the pc i have now struggles to play any decent games, the main thing is speed and be able to print stuff, i also need a decent printer which does'nt cost a fortune for ink as my z600 seems to and prints fast

Consider the following:
1) if I use it for business, and it breaks down-what after sale/repair service do I get?
2) find your own honest answer to Diodorus Siculus advice
3) do I need perhaps a bit more about CPU's graphic-cards, area of primaryuse of my system?

If yes, get yourself informed (nearly every PC magazine runs a PC buying advice column - take advantage of that) and only than make a decision. 5 -6 hundred squids is a good chunk NOT to spend on junk...(well who would have thought that - there is a forum poet in me..;-)

If you want a good, fast and efficent printer go with the "Canon Pixma IP1000" it is a great printer. I have 1 myself.
