I have looked around on the Acer website, but this PC is not listed under their products section. I suspect that it is especially made for PC World. The only way to find answers to your questions seems to be asking for more detailed specs at PC World.
Thanks for the response, Kestrel. I think you're right. I think I'll have to go and ask a member of staff to open the case on one of these PCs, and let me have a look at the components it uses. Wonder if they'd do that?
I just opened one a display model to check the specs for you.
The PSU is an FSP ATX-250PA, 250W
The Motherboard has 2 RAM slots, both of which are occupied. It appears to be an Acer specific board, the model number printed on the PCB is Acer IPISB-VR Rev 1.01. It has 3 PCI-E 1x slots, and 1 of what I assume to be a PCI-E 16x slot, although it may only be 8x. I can't find any detailed specs of this board online.
"Strikes me that the one you have looked at is pretty basic!"
It appeared to be good value, given the limited information PC World provided. That i3 2100 CPU is supposed to be a great choice for gaming on a budget (it out-games any of the AMD quad core CPUs), and I had thought to add some more cheap RAM and a £70-ish graphics card. Not to be. I'm in no hurry to buy, though. My current desktop's motherboard and CPU date from 2002.
