Am looking to buy a new computer base and my limit is £300.
Looked at the currys and comet site and not too bad prices, as would like 2GB RAM and 320GB hard drive, can do with a bit less if need be. The only thing that i struggle with is the processor as they list all different types and i do not know which is best.
Am not sure about the graphics card as most have on-board graphics and not sure what it means.
Many thanks in advance too anyone that can help me.
I am lookin to get a digital camera and download pics, also getting pics from e-mails and getting a copier/scanner/printer so i can do my own pics(if i can), my son plays games on the computer nothing to taskworthy and the rest is just general websurfing.
The games played are important to determine what graphics card is needed - can you list these games please?
One of the best PCs at the moment for £299 is this quad-core based Dell PC from Tesco click here - out of stock at the moment, but it keeps returning.
It's got integrated graphics, which means it's poor for 3D games. But the good thing about it is that a reasonable 3D graphics card can be added for not a lot of money. Having said that, I hope your son's not into the likes of Crysis or similar! G
If the PC games have 2D or very low-end 3D requirements it should be OK.
Would you know how to install a graphics card if you had to? Or, know someone who could do it for you? If yes, that Tesco Dell PC would be OK, as the graphics can be upgraded right up to a 9800GT without changing the power supply (PSU). G
