Is that inc vat and del? What about warranty?

I would be inclined to buy Athlon xp 2500 now as very little dearer

Also the quality of the monitor is a factor. A good one can be worth twice the cost of the cheapest

Much depends on the make quite honestly.

You can pick up a Dell for this sort of money and whatever the ins and outs of Dell they make good computers and sell at value prices

that 961 says.

Build your own at Mesh Computers (click here) and you could end up with a higher spec for around £513 (incl. VAT and Del.)

Only real difference is not getting XP Pro but few need that.

it says there is a Graphics card... but also that there is a FREE AGP slot?
That doesn't seem correct? (But I'm open to correction!)
