Yes a good spec,however do you need that spec ?

What are your intentions,if just to surf the net...you do not need a top end pc.

Did notice though (12 usb ports) and no mention of psu output,you would be looking for at least 500w+

Ive recently bought similar spec,but do use the power of the processor with my video/photo editing etc.

We intend to use it for games - World of warcraft initially.
Will ask the mfg. for the psu output on this, thanks a lot.
Also thanks for you answer on AVG & Zone Alarm.

Nice PC, though don't Cube machines come in a small case? It would need a fair bit of cooling and that I suspect would be noisy. Also, you don't need that much graphics grunt for WoW. But a nice spec, definitely.

Cube247 computers are generally supplied in the usual tower cases; they are, in my limited experience, a bit (but not excessively) noisy as they are powerful machines.

A number of other companies make desktop machines in small cubic cases whose model name or type description includes the word 'Cube'. They generally employ lower power microprocessors to get round the heat problem, and to reduce the noise level.

So confusion arises when 'Cube247' is familiarly referred to as 'Cube'!

Thanks for clearing that up :)
