thanks in advance

And if you are no uptospeed with all the techo stuff#just a get a basic one that wikll do what you wantwith out the need to get too involved.

More over is you are not so fussed about the latest gizxmoes then last months model at a reduced price may serve.

thanks for the advise but you didnt answer my question of will they be able to do the things i want and are what are the best of the ones i left links to.

None are good for high end gaming as i'm sure you are aware due to neither have a stand alone graphics card.
I would go for the second link in your list for the quad core processor which is great for multi tasking and will do you for a good few years.
Football manager 2008 will run on virtually any pc so the onboard graphics should be no problem for it.
Two things you may need to buy.
1. None of them seem to come with an operating system.
2.If you want to play most modern games (other tham FM 08) you will need to buy a graphics card.

Just to cover myself.
I'm not advising you to buy from EBAY as they all have some negative feedbacks regarding system spec advertising.
But as you've only asked which is best,that is the answer(IMHO) i have given.

I've bought a PC from the company Puterz Ltd click here
and they are excellent.

Still no dedicated graphics card though in those ones. But as i said they will play FM 08 as it's a very low spec game.
If thats ok with you,then go for it as Zaggerman
can vouch for them.
Alternately,for about the same price,you can get one with a dedicated graphics card from Nova tech.Myself and many forum members have all happily used them for many years.
You will still need to add an operating system from Puterz Ltd or Nova tech.

True Mrwoowoo but compare the specs like for like and the Puterz Ltd ones are way ahead - even have a Blu-Ray drive. They will customize it for you too so adding a dedicated graphics card is possible. Plus 3 years warranty for free.

I don't work for them by the way just impressed with the machine I have from them :-)
