Not wishing to put the mockers on this, but I have a profound feeling of dread.

Sorry, but have to agree.

let us know how you get on, but I suspect Gandalf is concerned you might not get the PC you're hoping for.

I'm not entirely familiar with a 2.0GHz Quad CPU - the Q6600 is clocked at 2.4GHz. Unless it's a phenom CPU in which case it's really not very great.

But still, if you get a PC for £300 that's not bad!

Hello the proccessor is a "intel core 2 quad" does this make it a rubbish pc as i dont know the quad core's..?

The Quad core CPUs are pretty good, but there isn't really much software that supports them - if you do a lot of Photoshop work or video editing then you may feel the benefit.

Still, £325 for a PC with 19" screen isn't to be sniffed at...

It looks like it's not a "core2quad" click here none of them are 2.0GHz

  interzone55 11:26 16 Apr 2008

There isn't a Core2 Quad rated at 2Ghz, but the Xeon Quad E5405 is 2Ghz - can't see a £300 PC having one of these onboard though...

Ive emailed the guy & he knows "NOTHING" about pc's ive asked him whats the proccessor speeds & all he thinks is 2.0ghz per proccessor he said & BUT he did say it has "Quad" & intel on it on the front on a sticker & its SUPER FAST he stated..?? oh & its brand new..??

  charmingman 11:57 16 Apr 2008

sorry it has "intel core 2 quad" on the sticker on the front of the base unit..there is two side's to this coin its either much better than he thinks or its much slower...Doh...
