Hi all ive got a grand to spend on a new pc either with a monitor or not, id rather get a better base unit then get a package if there is going to be a decent amount of differance, im more into the gaming pc's just cant justify spending any more than a grand, Also is there MUCH of a differance between the I7 Proccessor & the core 2 Quad..?
Any suggestions on pc's woul be appreciated..

Ask in Helproom, you will get better responses there. This section is for non-PC related chat.

I would say debates, but recent threads of tinned tomatoes and such changed my mind.

This would be one of the reasons why BT is doing away with the numbers and shift people to 0370 numbers, which pay no fee to the owner...

I would suggest that the correct forum is, in fact, Consumerwatch...:-)

Spotted an i7 base unit at Scan click here for just over £900. However, NO graphics card (or optical drive) included & the case itself retails for ~£140! Hence, it may work out better & cheaper if you were to buy the components & build it yourself.

Reviews/benchmarks indicate there's quite a difference between the i7 & C2Q, & more so when overclocked. Whether it justifies the premium or not will depend on your expectations/budget. If going down the i7 route, the cheapest 920 one would be chip of choice - of course! The others cost an arm & a leg :-)), G
